Today I was reminded of something that, despite living in Louisiana my entire life, I never learned about until I was almost 25 years old. This is the story of Bogalusa, Louisiana, and the struggle for equal rights and living wages for its workers, and how capitalism’s oppressive nature led to the death of those trying to defend that struggle.

Gonna pop off for a bit about Fats Domino, Cosimo Matassa, and a small history of New Orleans Soul and R&B in this thread! Feel free to join along, I'll try to include music as much as I can.

@Thomas @anthonydavis for every day Anthony Davis does not return to Mastodon, I will injure one New Orleans Pelicans player

Thinking about the fellow student in my coding class who not-so-subtly let everyone know they failed the midterm by asking "So hypothetically let's say we didn't do well on the midterm, how screwed are we?" Then following that up with "So let's say we didn't do well on the midterm, what can we do to improve for the final?"

Fast internet: good
No internet: good
Slow or intermittent internet: proof that god is real and that they hate you specifically

Kids these days will not know the emotions that come with downloading a song titled "Rammstein - Final Fantasy X.exe" from Limewire

Yes, I was very into Rammstein, yes I was very into DDR, yes I really liked Final Fantasy X's soundtrack, and yes I most definitely had the iPod commercial song on my non-iPod MP3 player

I kept meaning to post this here but it's easier to type the image description on desktop instead of mobile. Anyway, I booted up an old Rio FUSE MP3 player last week that hasn't been updated since ~2005/2006.

The joystick on the player was busted so I had to use the menu to play tracks, and aside from the first two tracks being corrupted (? it would "play" it for a second then reboot the player), it worked perfectly fine.

*Death Cab for Cutie Voice*
If Kenan and Kel decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the "GO"s on the their "All That" signs
If there's no one beside you
When that reboot starts
Then I will record it for you on my DVR
