We Have Got To Talk About The AltRight #AltRightMeans

Oh, the “Alt-Right.” Get used to that phrase, you’re going to hear a lot about it in the next few days if Hillary Clinton does, as the buzz on Twitter suggests, give a speech about it today. The Alt-Right is the source of all the weird conspiracies that have come out of the woodwork against Clinton these days and has become on the cusp of going mainstream since the former leader of Breitbart.com, Stephen Bannon, is now in charge of the Donald Trump campaign.

The alt-right, at least on Twitter, is rather giddy that they are about to be addressed formally by Clinton. They seem to think they will accrue some sort of instant power. I will give them this — it a sick, twisted way, some of their memes are at least thought provoking in a humorous manner.

It’s too bad that should Clinton mention them, the alt-right will generate about a half hour of solid mirth, only to get really nasty and dark and make us grit our teeth for a week until things subside. But whatever. The whole thing will be interesting to watch.

I Want To Start A Successor Site To Gawker.com Using #EDM & #fashionblogging

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I am finally growing tired of this subject because, well, no one will contact me in a concrete manner about helping me out. Really, all I want is a serious discussion with someone with a little bit of dough about what he / she would need to think about helping me out.

I guess, though, in real terms, thousands, if not millions, of other people are in the same situation and nothing is going to happen. Really, I just need to either shut up or, like, win the lottery or something. But whatever. I guess maybe all this foolishness is the final death rattle of my involvement with ROKOn Magazine. If you really want to know what happened with the magazine, read this —>Somehow

The below video explains at length AGAIN my world view for the site, which involves using the passion of EDM and fashion blogging to do something really cool.

Foreign Policy’s Hiring & I’m Feeling Blue

by Shelton Bumgarner

Apparently Foreign Policy is hiring for its blog. I could write for them really well, I think, but I don’t have “three clips” handy as they suggest you need. Actually, maybe I do. I’m at my dad’s and I might have some old clips from when I was working at the local newspaper.

Working for Foreign Policy would be cool.

I have the knowledge and the writing ability, but it’s unlikely I could even get an interview. Such is my life.

Sigh.

V-log: Another Idle Monologue About My Summer Gawker Daydream

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I figure I will eventually grow tired of this subject once it sets in that while a few people may be reading what I’m writing, none of them have any interest in helping me in any concrete manner. So, while we wait for that to happen, we get a 10 minute monologue explaining what I’ve been talking about AGAIN.
