BC instructs people to stop saying “British Columbians” because it’s offensive
You may have seen the story a few weeks back about the eco-fanatics over in France who entered the Louvre, approached the Mona Lisa and sprayed soup all over its protective glass barrier as part of what they called a “food counterattack”. The West’s “agricultural system is sick”, they proclaimed, something which meant that “Our farmers are dying at work”.
Cynics might say the true reason so many European farmers are actually dying at work at the moment is because they keep on committing suicide in their barns on account of wrong-headed and ruinous EU-led attempts to force the “sick” agricultural patient in question into ruder green eco-health via mountains of unsustainable bureaucracy and other such quasi-Marxist faff, but the protesters did not agree. “What is more important?” they asked. “Art or the right to healthy and sustainable food?”

Taylor Swift has sold one of her private jets for $40 million, according to a new report.

A BBC radio show presented by Lucy Worsley that discusses murderers from a “feminist perspective” has sparked a backlash from female listeners after focusing on discrimination against male drag artists…
If this morning’s Academy Awards announcement proved anything, it is never bet against Diane Warren in your Oscar pool. Or John Williams.
Warren’s 15th nomination in the Best Song category (with no wins but an Honorary Oscar to show for it) and Williams’ 54th overall in music categories were the most predictable of a mostly predictable Oscar nomination list. The surprise would be if either of them were not nominated in a year in which they had eligible work. For Warren, it’s “The Fire Inside” from Flamin’ Hot, and for Williams it is Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, marking the fourth Indy movie among his noms.
