#when did the onion start posting real news stories










Yes.
Just nerding out over this Echonest breakdown of songs on Spotify that begin with the words “You Are,” “We Are,” and “I Am,”


“If art reflects society, we should pay attention when musicians sing about us, specific people, or themselves.

Thousands of songs begin with the words “You Are,” “We Are,” and “I Am,” offering one portal into such matters. What if we were to look at each group of songs, and see how they tend to differ? This should tell us something interesting about how musicians — and, by extension, people — feel about people.

And that is what Glenn McDonald, data alchemist for The Echo Nest at Spotify, decided to do.

He created groups of each kind of song — those that start “You Are,” “We Are,” and “I Am” — which you can listen to below. The first two groups yielded the most interesting differences in acoustic attributes from The Echo Nest’s audio analysis.”

Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school
September 2, 2014

While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.

“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”

Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She also filed a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.

So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”

As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves. 

Where is the rapist’s information? why is his identity being withheld?
