Just For Fun
In case anyone missed it in the social media barrage, Richard Spencer (president of the white supremacist group National Policy Institute) managed to get himself clocked pretty good on live television yesterday.
You might recall seeing Spencer's name in the news lately due to a dust up with the citizens of Whitefish in my home state of Montana, in which he planned an armed white supremacist march protesting Jewish members of the community.
After heavy media scrutiny and a grassroots awareness campaign, he was out-protested by a bunch of more heavily armed Montanans who don't put up with that sort of shit.
Back to the video of Spencer taking a fist to the face: a true Twitter hero named Zayn synced a portion of the footage up with Hatebreed's "Everyone Bleeds Now." Bravo sir!

September Mourning just released an official music video for "20 Below," taken off the "Volume II" album, which is out now on Sumerian Records.
"20 Below" follows the continuing story of human-reaper hybrid September through parallel story lines as she is pursued between two worlds. The band further comments: "'20 Below' is about ending the cycle of abuse within our own lives, whether it's self inflicted or from an outside source.
"We’ve all had those relationships where someone has gotten close to us, abuses us in some way… knocks us down so hard it diminishes our self esteem. '20 Below' is about the realization that the beat down feeling and feelings of worthlessness are untrue and being caused by some external negativity. It's about being strong enough within your own self to rise above.
"There are no saviors or messiah coming to save us. There's only the strength in our hearts and our souls, which is greater than we can even conceive. It’s great enough to be the catalyst to save our own selves if we find a way to tap into that part of ourselves." More...
