  • :joy: < This emoji is hate speech
  • Terry Pratchett was shit (though you don’t need to read him to know that)
  • J-Corbz is toast and so is the rest of the party.
  • Nigel Slater’s really, really important

OTHERS?

Usually under FT social media posts

Maybe we should all buy her a coffee and then she wouldn’t have to come up with ridiculous commissions?


#16

Cultural importance.

I made this point in the music thread yesterday - music journos now have less authority to tell you if music’s any good (because you can access it for free) so their MO now seems to be to establish their authority by telling you how contextually important an album is.

Not saying this as a criticism, just seems observable by my reckoning.

#18

“We need to discuss the political significance of emoji.”

Do we now? Need? To discuss that? The political significance of emoji? Righto.

Or take on commissions which kind of make you less sympathetic to the fact she’s got a massive credit card bill to pay off

Always the first to get the shots in, you say… :thinking:
