Why Not Both is an exploration of how our multiple passions shape our identity, hosted by musician and therapist Pam Shaffer and produced by writer and photographer Laura Studarus. We partnered up with Under The Radar to explore the lives of musicians, writers, actors, and creatives. John Darnielle lives purely in the creative moment, whether he is crafting songs for his band The Mountain Goats, writing novels like his newest work Devil House, or simply trying to figure out why his phone has duplicated all of his contacts. He describes his attention span as intense and yet diffuse, a quality that allows him to have sprawling conversations and entertain a broad range of ideas that all coalesce into his multiple artistic endeavors. Throughout our chat, his vibrant dark humor and quick mind served as a remind to stay present to the absurdity and joy right in front of us.

Bible Study & Devotional 243 Read Today's Assigned Passages Guiding Scripture: Proverbs 22:13 ‘The sluggard says, “There's a lion outside! I'll be killed in the public square!” ‘ Absurdity Written by: Torrie Slaughter I'm not a fan of mosquitoes. I think they are very disrespectful insects. There are certain areas I will not travel into because I know they are out for blood. I allowed these tiny ‘beasts' to dictate where I went and when. So is that an excuse or prudent thinking? A Great Lion Maker The Proverbs compares the foolish to wise, lazy to hard-working, and righteous to the wicked. The pithy sayings are simple, to-the-point convictions that we can use to begin self-examination. Proverbs 22:13 is one example that doesn't appear as frequently in the book; however, the instruction is plain.

Featuring guest Dan Nagan of Everything We Learned (https://twitter.com/adapperdanman)! Red and Mandy live in remote, mountainous California. Jeremiah Sand wants Mandy for his own. When he finally gets her and finds out he can't earn her love, fealty, or fear, he burns her alive in front of her beloved. Red, newly given to the righteous, hellacious power of grief, embarks on a bloodbath rampage to exact vengeance on Sand, his followers, and the tripping, genetically modified sadomasochist biker gang that made Red's pain possible. For being a relatively new film, MANDY has already left its mark on the action/horror space. Thematically evocative of a prog rock paean, visually visceral like a death metal album cover, and dripping with psychedelic horror vibes, its vision never outstrips its execution. It can be slow, strange, off-putting, and unconvincing, but it's not forgettable. It rocks. It's also, sometimes, very good.

https://astralcodexten.substack.com/p/absurdity-bias-neom-edition Alexandros M expresses concern about my post on Neom. My post mostly just makes fun of Neom. My main argument against it is absurdity: a skyscraper the height of WTC1 and the length of Ireland? Come on, that's absurd! But isn't the absurdity heuristic a cognitive bias? Didn't lots of true things sound absurd before they turned out to be true (eg evolution, quantum mechanics)? Don't I specifically believe in things many people have found self-evidently absurd (eg the multiverse, AI risk)? Shouldn't I be more careful about “this sounds silly to me, so I'm going to make fun of it”?

GateCrashers has interviewed a huge array of guests from artists to Tony winners to New York Times Best Selling authors but nothing can measure up to one of the scum dogs of the universe, GWAR. The Intergalactic conquerors/band known as GWAR have released a new album entitled “The New Dark Ages" that is available to stream now on all platforms. The physical CD will be released on July 15th along with the tie in comic GWAR: In the Duoverse of Absurdity from Z2 comics. The vinyl and cassette versions of the album release on September 16th via the band's own Pit Records. Dan sat down with guitarist Pustulus Maximus to have a deep conversation from a range of topics. One of the major themes of the album is the loss of truth and the belief in lies. One of the tracks "Mother Fucking Liar" lays out the bands feelings on the subject very well. They speak about the impact of the lack of trust in science and how the human race has essentially doomed itself and continues to chose to do so. Dan checks in on the "War on Gwar" from the previous album to see how that rages on. Pustulus talks about performing for live audiences after some time away in isolation, spoilers everyone is a hell of a lot hornier. Pustulus also dives into a bit of a conversation about what cancel culture is and a human's ability to grow as a person over time which should be nurtured rather than stomped out. Be sure to check out Gwar's new album "The New Dark Ages" right fucking now.

Before the pandemic, Megan Stalter was an unknown comedian, trying to catch a lucky break at clubs in New York City. But with the arrival of COVID-19, social media became her only outlet, and she quickly found an audience with her short-form, D.I.Y. character videos,  portraying the “breadth of American idiocy,” as Michael Schulman puts it, with such accuracy and heart that it's hard to turn away. After her rise to Internet fame—she was dubbed the “queen of quarantine”—Stalter was offered the part of Kayla, the overprivileged and clueless assistant, on HBO's hit series “Hacks.”  It was her first acting job.  Plus, Helen Rosner joins the chef Andy Baraghani in his home kitchen for a lesson on cauliflower ragu. Baraghani, best known for his YouTube cooking videos for Bon Appetit, is out with a new cookbook called “The Cook You Want to Be.”
