Tom Petty on Confederate Flag

Thoughts about the current headline from Rolling Stone:

Tom Petty on Past Confederate Flag Use:’It Was Downright Stupid’
URL: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/tom-petty-on-past-confederate-flag-use-it-was-downright-stupid-20150714

The individual is an ideological actor of the community from which the individual’s identity is projected. The community becomes a consequence of individual motivations, and retains the institutional memory of transgressive acts. Online communities are the results of interests and beliefs coming into alignment with enough other individuals that collective action results.

On the internet, nobody knows if your dog is an ant.

When a performance, or spectacle, is enacted within a public space, it is foreshadowed through decisions, beliefs, and espoused aggrievements of the individual within a sanctioned counter-public. It is to the community’s name that such actions are justly laid, and their symbolic and iconic touchstones become burdened with the ramifications and reifications of the individual’s performative action.

Expect revised assessment of such iconography as a collective response.

“[The flag] shouldn’t represent us in any way,” Petty says. “We should be more concerned with why the police are killing black men for no reason”

2014 Peabody Award Announcements

The list isn’t complete yet (no announcements for Documentary, Children’s and Public Service programming) but the list of winners at it currently stands is itself quite impressive. A special congratulations to this blogger’s favorites: Amy Schumer, John Oliver, and the crew that makes The Knick such a terrifying drama.

Serial’s Impact

Serial – a podcast that acted as if it were journalism, yet structured itself as an audio documentary with chapters – has succeeded in bringing Adnan Syed’s case in front of enough listeners and experts that he has now been given a chance to appeal his conviction.
