    there always seems to be clouds in every picture you take :)
    Clouds are nice and add drama.

    The summer hasn't been that great though. Saying that, this is the UK. It's virtually impossible to avoid clouds. We sit at the top of the jet steam. It's rare to have a cloudless day.

    Not to flog a dead horse here, but...

    As a first generation immigrant male of color in 'Murica...I'm no longer outraged by this. In fact, this sort of take on us has been standard operating procedure since the founding fathers locked the Brits out so that they didn't have to pay taxes to the Queen anymore.

    I'm no longer outraged. I'm long past that. My issue is in this post modern, flash news cycle, hyper short attention span world, i keep seeing the same thing... minority male getting killed by the powers that be, community reacts in outrage, have some marches, politrickians laugh and make no changes, fervor over said high profile killing dies down...rinse and repeat.

    While there are folks working hard to make the necessary changes, I'm over the whole "pseudo-outrage". Folks can be mad enough all they want, but until more people across the wider US society really utilize their powers collectively to make sustained change, all we will see is a more numbing and exhausting and repetitive version of this cycle.

    Because best believe that the haven't been killing folks where there are no cameras of social media to share it like this for years...

    Yeah I hear you.

    Yesterday when I was in London there was a protest building on Southbank for #blacklivesmatter.

    This is around 7pm, lots of people around having dinner, etc. not exactly a protest spot. I have nothing against protest and I know the UK isn't perfect in a lot of ways, especially recently, but in a way it felt more like a social media stunt rather than anything meaningful. Lots of smartphones taking video.

    This goes along with what you're saying. People get all fire up then it will die off, waiting for the next thing to happen...

    I'm often left wondering if the will to fight has simply left the populace. We seem so placid. I guess the politicians and media have finally did it. An easily controlled population...

    The will to fight for what is right still exists. The issue now is perceiving what is "right to fight for."

    Am I the only one who think this 'Your Groove' feature is useless? It's supposed to make playlist based on my listening habits, and well, it's not doing that. All it does is recommend existing albums that I could easily find without it.

    You have it easy. Try working in a large company on a large project. The amount of reading you have to do is crazy.

    I know I pick on sports a lot but I'll use it as an example. Most people know more about their favourite sports and sports people than they do about the party they vote for or what they represent.

    That statement can be added to those who follow celebrities and so on.

    I simply think people feel completely powerless about the political system and we've more or less given up as corporations have more control than the people do.

    A revolution is needed but putting food on a plate and paying your bills is more important. Having 'fun' to distract yourself from all the stresses of life is what TV and the rest does. Though I sometimes wonder if it just adds to our life stresses.
