It just can’t be possible that every song on this album is as good as the three that have been released, right? This song kills.

Aziz Ansari has joined comedians including Jim Gaffigan and Louis CK (who introduced the innovative idea) in offering DRM-free media for low prices.  

What are your thoughts on DRM-free media? Do you think DRM-free media offered at low prices would discourage pirating? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

This is an interesting question. There is no doubt that Louis CK made a ton of money on this. I think that it might be too late for this to work on a mainstream scale, though. I feel that people are too stuck with the idea that they can get any media for free. Having cheap DRM-free media makes the artist more money than they would through other means (YouTube, Spotify, illegal downloading, etc.), so in that aspect it could be better than nothing.

#UKEngage: Why Laverne Cox is a “possibility model” and why we need trans visibility

Laverne Cox recently appeared Katie Couric’s daytime talk show during a segment featuring “Transgender Trailblazers” with model Carmen Carrera. Cox spoke about her role as Sophia Burset on Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black”, why she prefers the term “possibility model”, and why the preoccupation with transition objectifies trans people.

"I think that the preoccupation with transition and with surgery objectifies trans people, and then we don’t get to really deal with the real, lived experiences. The reality of trans people’s lives is that so often we’re targets of violence. We experience discrimination disproportionately to the rest of the community. Our unemployment rate is twice the national average; if you’re a trans person of color is four times the national average. The homicide rate of the LGBT community is highest among trans women. When we focus on transition, we don’t actually get to talk about those things." 

What do you think of Cox’s preference of “possibility model”? How can the UK community promote trans visibility? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

I’m waking up in night terrors
Can’t stop the future
Keeps pushing me ahead
I feel the weight of the world crushing down on me
And time seems so linear
Decisions seem so absolute

Yeah it’s a harsh realm
Yeah it’s a harsh realm
Don’t abandon me
Don’t abandon me

There’s a million things to get done today
I can’t calm down, I can’t think straight
You give a little bit of time everyone you meet
And what do you say for yourself?
How much money do you need
To give yourself a sense of security?
