Are you someone who used to play videogames, but stopped b/c you lost interest for some reason? I'd like to talk to you. For a thing. Plz RT
— David Wolinsky (@davidwolinsky) December 10, 2014

What is this?


Don't die started because I found the conversation around videogames online to be stifling. It's repetitive, dehumanizing, and typically fixated on consumer goods -- videogames as products, not the creative products of individuals.

So in January 2015 I set about talking to people who make videogames and people who used to play them, focusing on certain problems and misperceptions within the industry. Nine months and more than 100 interviews later, it is abundantly clear don't die is growing beyond the perspectives these two groups can provide. The questions are getting bigger.

On this day, 31 May 1831, the Merthyr Tydfil uprising was sparked when bailiffs from the Court of Requests attempted to seize goods from the home of Lewis Lewis, known as Lewsyn yr Heliwr (Lewis the Huntsman).

Lewis refused to let them in, and with his neighbours managed to prevent them from entering his home. The following day a demonstration by ironworkers began ransacking the houses of bailiffs and returning property to the original owners. The rebellion spread and lasted until mid-June.

Alabama ranked fifth in environmental protection


(The article also includes a map in which you can check how many toxic wastes your state omits in favour of your decreasing wealth. Just in case you're curious to see.)
Alabama had the fifth highest volume of toxic releases into waterways in 2017 with 11.2 million pounds, and the fifth most toxic substances released into the air with 27.1 million pounds.

Just in case you thought that this high ranking was good. It isn't.

The analysis was published this month in the EPA’s Toxics Release Inventory, a massive collection of legal pollution reports filed with the agency from more than 21,000 industrial facilities across the country. The reports lay out how much of certain chemicals are emitted to the air, land and water from manufacturing operations, electric utilities, as well as facilities like hazardous materials landfills that accept certain toxic substances.

However, take away land releases, which include the heavy mining waste, and Alabama and other southeastern states be... Show more...

The Green New Deal's relation to Alexander Hamilton


Hamilton, in short, successfully used the power of the federal government to boost manufacturing, to pick winners and losers, and to shape the fate of the U.S. economy.

Above all, the Green New Deal is a leftist resurrection of federal industrial policy. It is not an attempt to control the private sector, according to its authors; it is a bid to collaborate with it. And it draws on a set of ideas with a rich American history, extending long before the great World War II mobilization to which the Green New Deal is regularly compared.

_This new school is central to the Green New Deal. Omitting it is like ignoring Milton Friedman when discussing President Ronald Reagan’s policies. And discarding it is throwing out what makes the Green New Deal so interesting. _

Late to the party


I can’t believe it’s taken me literally decades to discover I love #Soundgarden. Of course I was always aware of “Black Hole Sun”, since it seemed like everyone covered it, but for some reason I never took to #grunge when it exploded, despite the fact that I was into #punk #rock in the early 1980s, followed by #heavy #metal. Maybe my tumultuous 30s messed with my ability to enjoy anything.

One good thing about discovering #music this late in life is I know I truly #love it rather than merely reacting to #industry #marketing #pressure.

Soundgarden: the band #Led #Zeppelin could have been had they been much better. (I know, that’s sacrilege to many.)

Side note: At about the same time, I discovered #Elliott #Smith. (This has been an exciting couple of months for me.)
