20160511_GIF_TOWER_BEARDCAGE_MDM.gif — Hard to know how many people are participating in GIFable nonsense like this, but if you aren’t, why the heck not? Giphy is the most fun in searching since AltaVista, or “the prototype of a fully semantic visual language, a linguistic evolution with legs that’s oozing up from the Internet swamp and taking its first tentative steps on dry land…”

20160511 — If you’re looking for two pieces of journalism that are most definitely worth your while (and fascinatingly complementary), please check out “Black Teens are Breaking the Internet and Seeing None of the Profits” and “Black Trauma Remixed for Your Clicks” from Doreen St. Felix & Niela Orr, respectively.

20160510 — Not unrelated, #PhotosWeLove is another opportunity to twist the stem or stem the tide, if only for the length of a photograph, and the time it takes to explain its impact on you.
