It’s Future day today but not in the typical “the future is now” sense but in the “Future done dropped a few music videos unexpectedly today” manner.
In support of his recently released Save Me EP, the ATLien dropped a trio of visuals in “Xanax Damage, “Government Official,” and Love Thy Enemies” in which Future Hndrxx goes from singing and pleading into a telephone (not to be confused with a cellphone) in “Xanax Damage” to politicking with models in “Love Thy Enemies.”
From somber feelings to sunny weather, Chaz French and Rich The Kid link up to enjoy the company of bikini rocking young women and swimming pool activities in the visual for “Handful.”
Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Tee Grizzley, YBN Nahmir, and more.
FUTURE – “XANAX DAMAGE”
FUTURE – “GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL”
FUTURE – “LOVE THY ENEMIES”
CHAZ FRENCH FT. RICH THE KID – “HANDFUL”
TEE GRIZZLEY – “SWEET THANGS”
YBN NAHMIR – “OPP STOPPA”
COSHA TG – “ENERGY”
CONWAY & TRILLMATIC – “DRACO”
Ann Atwater, an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis, a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battle over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971.
Insults were tossed and shade was thrown on this week’s ‘Catfish’ — get a recap on the drama-filled episode.
I hate cows.
My uncle owned a dairy farm. My siblings and I often worked on that farm. My chores included shoveling cow manure, cleaning the milk storage tanks, and herding the cows. One time I befriended a calf and gave it a cute name. A few weeks later my grandmother served it to me for dinner. It wasn’t the best way to hear the news.
I will always remember the day my brother and I were invited to watch the hog slaughter. My uncle slit each hog’s necks in front of us and we watched the hogs scream and bleed out.
I’m a vegetarian now (mostly) but not because of that childhood farming horror. I don’t digest meat well. I tell you this background so you understand my bias.
I recently watched a documentary called Cowspiracy. Leonardo DiCaprio executive produced it. The filmmakers are vegans, so take their point of view with the usual skepticism. The film’s claim is that science supports their notion that perhaps half of the problem with climate change is caused by livestock flatulence and the decimation of the rain forest for livestock farming.
The more interesting claim is that the cow-fart portion of climate change is the type that can be quickly reversed. Once the cows are gone, the gases dissipate relatively quickly. The film claims that even if we stopped using all carbon fuels for transportation, the chemistry of the atmosphere is such that we would not get a meaningful improvement in a short time frame. But getting rid of livestock has a quick benefit, they say.
According to the documentary, it’s either the cows (and other livestock) or us. If we keep eating animals, and the animals keep turbo-charging climate change, we’re all deeply screwed.
The movie suggests that Big Meat might kill people for mentioning this topic. So if I die under suspicious circumstances, please reduce your meat consumption. Karma demands it.
One assumes the Cowspiracy film has some bias. And I expect that critics are questioning the science and assumptions in the film. I’ll let you rip the documentary apart in the comments. But I think the basic premise that livestock is a big contributor to climate change is true. Fact-check me on that.
This week we heard that cured meats cause cancer. Sheesh.
Now add the economics of using a zillion acres of land to feed cows instead of humans. That can’t be a good use of resources in a crowded world.
I would like to avoid a debate on the benefits of a vegetarian diet, as I find that unproductive in this sort of forum. But I am interested to know if any of you are meat-eaters and also climate change worriers. I don’t see how you can be both, assuming the Cowspiracy folks are right, or somewhat right.
Is there anyone reading this blog who is both worried about climate change and also a meat-eater? If so, how do you rationalize it?
P.S. It was nice knowing you.

If you at all experienced childhood in the 80s and 90s and didn’t play Nintendo, specifically the Mega Man franchise, it could be argued that you, in fact, had no childhood. (You can spitefully share this article with your parents later and say something like, “Did you guys really love me at all?!”)
The “Mega Man” games were really some of the first of its kind. It followed the adventures of mechanical hero Mega Man, a blue-armored android with an arm cannon and the ability to take the special power of each boss robot he destroys. These bosses each had their own levels, minions and personality, all following a similar theme related to their name — “Metal Man,” “Spark Man” and “Gravity Man,” just to name a few.
Comedians Asterios Kokkinos and Paige Weldon reimagined these villains for a new book, not as enemies of your video game-obsessed childhood, but instead as enemies of your 20s, perhaps the most evil of all.
We’re talking about those people who would constantly borrow money from you, or couldn’t stop talking about the fact that their dog was a rescue, or that insisted they just did drugs “casually.”
It’s a nostalgic look back at the people who shaped your 20s using the game that shaped your childhood.
