Comment of the Weeks: September 3 – 14 – Blood Orange’s Serve

The internet is terrible except for when it’s great.

Last week Devin Hynes, who records under the name Blood Orange, went to Instagram to post a picture from his Interview Magazine feature. The picture features Hynes in a trench coat and showing a ton of leg. A fan responded in shock, but Hynes fired back with perhaps the best possible response.

Devin Hynes, Blood Orange, Instagram, Comment of the Week

One word was all it took. I laughed incessantly when I saw the response. It was perfect, and it didn’t attempt to explain anything. Sadly, the Instagram post no longer exists. To see more of the shots from the photo shoot check out hisĀ Interview Magazine feature.

Before I go let me suggest you listen to Blood Orange’s Negro Swan album. It’s available anywhere you buy music, and anywhere you stream. Like all of his albums it is a work of art, and you will not regret it.

Comment of the Week: November 24

So this week is a bit of a cheat.

It’s a tweet, not a comment. But what is Twitter if not a living, breathing (except for the bots) comment section?

Human trash receptacles, Tomi Lahren, took to Twitter to share an image on Thanksgiving. The image (as seen below) contrasts WWII soldiers and a kneeling Colin Kaepernick. The intended effect was as obvious as it was obtuse and not standing in fact.

Tony Posnanski, among others, was having none of it.

Now Tomi, THAT is food for thought. Well said, and to think it was well under 180 characters too. Double win.

Comment of the Week: October 6

Some of the best advice you can give someone online is to stay away from the comment section. Why? Because they can be a bit of a cesspool. You can find evidence of some of the worst and dumbest of humanity.

All that said I still peek at the comments. Why? It just happens to be amongst all of those terrible people are posts that force me to stop everything and laugh. Each week I will (attempt) to share the comment that made me laugh the hardest.
