In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.
Explaining, the judge says it is possible that Donegan created the entry herself. The judge believes that Elliott should be able to explore whether the entry was fabricated. Accordingly, discovery proceeds, which will now put pressure on Google to respond to broad subpoena demands. The next motion stage could feature a high-stakes one about the reaches of CDA 230.
Superchunk – Crossed Wires
FRIDAY NIGHT VIDEOS!
As there are no videos yet (AFAIK) for the new albums, here’s a couple from their prior records.
Up top, Superchunk – if the song’s slightly more “adult”, and slightly less “teenage desperation” than I usually like, they make up for it with a truly awesome video showing what your cat gets up to when you’re not around. And it seems churlish to complain too much about the perfectly-cromulent crunchy melodic power-pop on display here (actually, I think the song is growing on me).
And anyway, Mac and Laura are responsible adults, with families, and a successful label to run, unlike Mr. Whiskers there (BAD KITTY!)
Down below, No Age on Letterman (Dave hilariously muffs the end – “It’s called ‘No Age’ and…these are them right there!”)
Yeah…now THAT’S the stuff. Don’t you wish more drummers sang? I’ve seen them live, and his energy never once flags. I think the kiddies are alright.
No Age – Fever Dreaming
What are y’all listening to tonight?
