Matt Miller: "Where the 'Spicy Boi' Meme Came From (and Why It's Spamming Hillary Clinton's Instagram)" (Slate)
Memes like this tap into those forces, and into the earliest, most anarchic days of the internet, when lawlessness and anonymity were among the culture's most important virtues. These memes are a reminder, an assertion of independence. An act of protest. An attempt to declare, in coded, meme-based language, "How can you control us? You can't even understand us."

Everywhere you look, there's plenty of success to be found on crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter or Indiegogo. Unfortunately, failure too abounds -- which is always extra humiliatingwhen the person behind a campaign is more famous than 99 percent of the people on the planet. Think about that. Some random nobody managed to get $55,000 for potato salad, and the following celebrities still failed miserably to reach their goals.

Joins Colbert To Talk Trump

Jon Stewart

If Internet headlines in the twilight of his sixteen-year tenure as host of The Daily Show are to be believed, Jon Stewart is a destructive man. The subjects of his scrutiny - right-wing figures and the media outlets that covered them, usually - were, the headlines read, "destroyed," "demolished," or occasionally "eviscerated" by Stewart's indignant brand of comedy.

On Thursday night, just under a year after he handed the Daily Show reins to Trevor Noah, Stewart returned to the nation's screens, joining his old friend Stephen Colbert on the main stage of The Late Show. He wore a T-shirt and a scruffy grey beard - the joke being, of course, that retirement normally means earlier bedtimes.

But Thursday night was a warranted exception. It was hours after Fox News CEO Roger Ailes - a frequent Stewart target - announced his resignation following accusations of sexual harassment, and mere minutes after the end of Donald Trump's bombastic final speech at the Republican National Convention.

"You feel that you're this country's rightful owners," he said, addressing those in the right-wing media who he said have enabled Trump. "There's only one problem with that. This country isn't yours. You don't own it."

Film Debut In San Diego

Edward Snowden

When former NSA contractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden met with Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone to discuss a movie on his life, he never thought he would be making his own film debut.

Stone had initially interviewed Snowden to include him in DVD outtakes, Snowden said via video link late Thursday in San Diego after a screening of Stone's "Snowden," which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the title character.

But Snowden and Stone ended up filming nine takes for a scene in which he talks about his fears stemming from his actions.

The movie, due out in September, follows the 2013 events that led Snowden, a former contractor with the National Security Agency, to expose the U.S. government's mass surveillance programs and flee the country after the government filed espionage charges against him.

He was granted asylum in Russia later that year, and has lived there since with his girlfriend, Lindsay Mills.

Film Swept Up In Financial Scandal

"The Wolf of Wall Street"

A small Hollywood studio behind Martin Scorcese's stinging movie about greed on Wall Street has been swept up in a multibillion-dollar financial scandal tied to the prime minister of Malaysia.

Red Granite Pictures, which produced "The Wolf of Wall Street," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, was named on Wednesday in a federal complaint that alleges the studio was implicated in a money laundering scheme by an investment and development company called 1MDB.

The investment fund is owned by the government of Malaysia, whose prime minister Najib Razak has been targeted by the massive scandal.

Razak is the step-father of Riza Aziz, the co-founder of Red Granite Pictures, which came up with the more than $100 million needed to finance the film.

The production house hit back at the allegations on Thursday insisting that it was not aware of any illicit funds being funnelled through the company

Town Well

Hugo, CO

Residents of a small farming community in eastern Colorado have been warned to avoid drinking the town's water after THC, the psychoactive agent in marijuana, was found in one of its feeder wells, authorities said on Thursday.

A public works employee in Hugo, a town of about 800 people 90 miles southeast of Denver, detected the chemical and health officials believe it is "marijuana THC-related," the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook posting.

"At this time, investigators are assessing the situation with state and federal authorities," the sheriff's office said. "Bathroom usage is still safe, but until more information is known to us, out of an abundance of caution, avoid drinking Town of Hugo water."

Captain Michael Yowell of the sheriff's office said there was evidence that the well was tampered with, and that the FBI and Colorado Bureau of Investigation have joined the probe.

The Lincoln County health department said in an alert that residents should avoid drinking, cooking or bathing with the town's water for at least 48 hours.

Law Struck Down

Alaska

The Alaska Supreme Court on Friday struck down a state law requiring parental notification for girls under age 18 seeking abortions, agreeing with pro-abortion rights advocates that the mandate approved by voters in 2010 was unconstitutional.

Justice Daniel Winfree, writing for the majority, said the court was not deciding whether abortions should be available to minors without restrictions but that the abortion notification law violated Alaska's constitutional equal protection provisions giving the same rights to all Alaskans.

In a concurring opinion, Justice Dana Fabe disagreed that the law violated the girls' equal protection rights but said she believes it violated their right to privacy.

The decision was praised by pro-abortion rights advocates, including the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska and Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands, which challenged the law.

"A young woman seeking an abortion doesn't need additional hurdles. She needs a doctor," said Joshua Decker, executive director of Alaska's ACLU, in a statement.

Warming Speeds Up

Earth

The earth is on track for its hottest year on record and warming at a faster rate than expected, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said on Thursday.

Temperatures recorded mainly in the northern hemisphere in the first six months of the year, coupled with an early and fast Arctic sea ice melt and "new highs" in heat-trapping carbon dioxide levels, point to quickening climate change, it said.

June marked the 14th straight month of record heat, the United Nations agency said. It called for speedy implementation of a global pact reached in Paris last December to limit climate change by shifting from fossil fuels to green energy by 2100.

"What we've seen so far for the first six months of 2016 is really quite alarming," David Carlson, director of the WMO's Climate Research Program, told a news briefing.

"This year suggests that the planet can warm up faster than we expected in a much shorter time... We don't have as much time as we thought."

Ordered To Stop Windows 10 From Spying On Users

Microsoft

After learning just how much data Windows 10 might be collecting from users, France's National Data Protection Commission (CNIL) has ordered Microsoft to comply with the French Data Protection Act and "stop collecting excessive data and tracking browsing by users without their consent" within three months.

Shortly after the launch of the new operating system in July 2015, CNIL began investigating the software and questioning Microsoft on its privacy policy. During these observations, the group discovered that Windows 10 was collecting irrelevant and excessive data, providing a frightening lack of security for users, failing to obtain user consent before allowing first- and third-party apps to monitor browsing or offer targeted advertising and more. The list goes on.

"Given the above, the Chair of the CNIL has decided to issue a formal notice to Microsoft Corporation to comply with the Act within three months," writes the CNIL. "This proceedings only commits French Data protection authority. The other data protection authorities belonging to the WP29 Contact group are continuing their investigations within their respective national procedures."

As for the consequences of failing to meet these standards: "Should Microsoft Corporation fail to comply with the formal notice within the specified timescale, the Chair may appoint an internal investigator, who may draw up a report proposing that the CNIL's restricted committee responsible for examining breaches of the Data Protection Act issue a sanction against the company."

Although Microsoft failed to explain why it continues to collect so much seemingly irrelevant data from users or even address the legitimate security concerns raised by CNIL, at least the company appears to be taking this seriously.

Actress Faces Re-Sentencing

'Melrose Place'

A former "Melrose Place" actress convicted for a fatal drunken driving crash in 2010 faces a re-sentencing after the state appealed her initial sentence as too lenient.

A state appeals court on Friday ruled the trial judge must offer a more detailed justification for why he downgraded Amy Locane-Bovenizer's sentence to three years.

She was convicted of vehicular manslaughter, assault by auto and other offenses and faced a sentencing range of five to 10 years on the most serious count.

At her February 2013 sentencing, the judge sentenced her below the prescribed range, citing the hardship on Locane-Bovenizer's two young children, one of whom has a serious medical and mental disability.

The sentence outraged friends and relatives of the victim, 60-year-old Helen Seeman, and the state appealed the sentence shortly after.

Cold War Echoes

N. Korea

North Korea's state radio has recently broadcast strings of indecipherable numbers, Seoul officials said Tuesday, in a possible resumption of a Cold War-era method of sending coded messages to spies operating in South Korea.

A female announcer at the radio station read numbers for 2 minutes on June 24 and 14 minutes on Friday, according to Seoul's Unification Ministry and National Intelligence Service. A copy of those comments provided by the ministry included phrases such as "No. 35 on Page 459" and "No. 55 on Page 913."

During the Cold War, Pyongyang sent such numbers via shortwave radio to give missions to agents dispatched to South Korea, according to captured North Korean spies. It later reportedly stopped such broadcasts once it could communicate with its spies overseas via the internet, and as animosities with South Korea eased following a historic inter-Korean summit meeting in 2000. Relations have deteriorated greatly since then as North Korea has pursued the development of nuclear weapons despite international sanctions.

The announcer in the North Korean broadcasts described the numbers as "review assignments in physics (under the curriculum of) the remote educational university for the geological expedition members across the country" or "practice assignments in mathematic lessons (under the curriculum) of the remote educational university for expedition members of team No. 27."

Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
