Lawsuit seeks to block Washington ‘parental rights’ initiative (washingtonstatestandard.com)

I understand why our legislature made the choice it did - so they could retain power over the bill and hopefully change it next session - but very grateful for the ACLU stepping in here to block the bill from going into effect at all. Fingers crossed they succeed in the courts.

That’s what you get for trying to have a real life.

And a tiny bit of white wine, and some salt. Freaking delicious.

Republicans Flock to Trump’s Trial, Risking Control of the House Floor (www.nytimes.com)

"The House was in session at the Capitol on Thursday, but thanks to the latest procession of Republicans reporting for duty in front of a Manhattan criminal courthouse to show support for former President Donald J. Trump at his trial, the party risked ceding its control of the floor,” the New York Times reports....

It looks like there is a work around for that, but it involves the Rules Committee, which is typically appointed by the Speaker. So, yeah, not possible, outside of some exceptions that I’m not sure I understand well enough to explain. Something about things that are “privileged”.

The concept is wonderful. I do not trust Elon with that concept. I worry that many folks with high hopes of this helping them will just end up used and hurt.

After announcing increased prices, Spotify to Pay Songwriters About $150 Million Less Next Year (www.billboard.com)

When Bloomberg reported that Spotify would be upping the cost of its premium subscription from $9.99 to $10.99, and including 15 hours of audiobooks per month in the U.S., the change sounded like a win for songwriters and publishers. Higher subscription prices typically equate to a bump in U.S. mechanical royalties — but not...

I use Napster. I chose it way back when Spotify paid for the Rogan podcast, from a list of platforms that pay artists more. I’m not sure if that’s true any longer, but look it up! I’ve been really happy with their service. (And it’s really full circle for me, since I used their original service decades ago.)

ETA I can’t vouch for the accuracy of this site, but it says Napster is still one of the top-paying platforms. https://lemmy.world/pictrs/image/f8591cc1-6b36-4cb5-8885-02d757157fa6.png

According to that site, Napster pays more. Here’s the info on TIDAL:

It was apparently before the college campus protests. I wonder what he thinks about those. https://lemmy.world/pictrs/image/b018cfcb-701a-4db9-b2be-888688f5f354.png

I think you’re confusing a wealth tax with an income tax. They’re different. As for how these wealthy people pay, it’s not up to the government to figure out how someone pays their taxes. The onus is on the taxpayer.

Imagine this, but with a sample set that can’t be easily replicated and no one believes that you didn’t doctor them somehow. Not fun.

This is from The Nanny, but I don’t know the episode. Those are the two main characters, though Fran is in a blond wig for some reason. It was made in the 90s and not in black and white, so this must have been a strange episode.

Oh! I found it, or at least this clip: youtu.be/82NuUC8WBko?si=30zJLoRGSBjtAnN7

Orange. Pure orange, yellow orange, neon, burnt. Not so much red-orange, but I do love oranges that have a bit of a pink sheen, like padparadscha sapphires.

And you stuck to the main, very large highways instead of trying the smaller routes. I always wonder if the Waze era of travel has helped or hurt smaller communities.

Video killed the radio star. Still remember watching Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit ad nauseum.

Minneapolis should make public transit free for a few* months, to encourage folks to use that instead. Golden opportunity.

How about you just don’t make this kind of analogy in the year 2024?

Opposition concedes that Newsom likely to eke out a win on Proposition 1 in California (www.latimes.com)

Prop 1 would fund a $6.4 billion bond, of which $4.4 billion would go to sharply increasing the availability of substance abuse treatment, while the rest would build permanent supportive housing for unhoused folks. Half of that would go to housing for veterans with mental illness or addiction.

Prop 1 is just the first proposition on that ballot. It gets reused every time. It’s preferable to reference the actual title of the proposition, rather than just saying Prop 1.

Twelve FEET? Like, two six-foot- tall people standing on top of each other?? 🤯

“The government” doesn’t want to argue that. Some idiot politicians do.
