I’d Get to the Top of the Mountain if It Would Just Stop Fucking Growing

Dia Frampton, writing on Medium:

It has been five years since my last album came out. A lot can happen in a half a decade. Trust me.

I don’t even know where to begin, or what exactly I’m trying to say. But I do know that I want to at least say: I’m still here.

A year shy of thirty, I feel like I might as well be fifty when it comes to women in the music industry. If we’re not in our teens or early twenties, we’re pushed aside and put on the shelf.

I’ve tried to reach “success” all my life, but now, I really don’t know exactly what “success” means.


‘Zombieland 2’ in the Works

It looks like a sequel to Zombieland is in the works:

“That is breaking news that we’re on Zombieland 2 right now,” they said. “We’re sitting with Woody [Harrelson]tomorrow and are going to sort of walk him through some of the stuff we want to do. All the cast is pretty excited.”

Facebook Fires Trending Topics Staff; Decision Immediately Backfires

Facebook got rid of the human curators for their “trending news” section and then, predictably, had the algorithm shit the bed and surface a fake story:

Facebook cut its Trending Topics team on Friday in favor of employing algorithms to surface news stories on the social networking platform.

Then on Sunday a fake story about Megyn Kelly getting fired by Fox for being a secret liberal showed up among the Trending Topics after getting hundreds of thousands of likes.

The company didn’t take the story down until Monday morning.
