Burger of the Day: Anyone still hungry on this fine Sunday? If you’re near a Slater’s 50/50, their Donut Burger will definitely fill you right up. The sandwich consists of two glazed donuts, a 50/50 patty (half bacon, half beef), one egg “sunny side up”, and cheese.

The burger is only available on Saturdays and Sundays during football season — as if you needed that monstrosity year-round anyway.

Haha oh you are but children prancing in a field of hayberries and lowing calves, this is not a one-off creation destined to clog the arteries of time— this is simply one descendent in a lineage of krispity kremety brilliance.

Kid Cudi, “Creepers”

Wordplay is not the draw of “Creepers,” as Cudder doesn’t say much here. The song’s space is filled by the hook’s stream-of-consciousness paranoid freak-out, obsessing over Cudi’s surroundings (notice that he rhymes “here” and “there” five times in the first six lines.) The singular verse jumps between topics from girls and money and drugs at a line-by-line clip, ranting about nothing in particular, just the malaise of being Scott Mescudi.

Even though it’s found in the middle of Kanye’s Cruel Summer, I don’t think this is supposed to be approached as a rap, and that taking its sound as a snapshot of Cudi’s mind feels more rewarding. I was unnerved by a little aural mindfuck it played on me: that whatever point the song starts playing, whether from 0:00 or the middle of its verse, Cudi sounds angry at first, and then eases into calm pleading. I think it’s that he has a bite to his voice, pushing away the gawkers and condescending to the plebes (if I had one wish it’d be to have more wishes/ duh/) but steady handclaps driving under the muffled synths and howls coast you gently along, just wanting to help him out with all of that weighty anger.

Since I’m already writing about serious stuff:

Chris Brown’s publicist gives him a steady stream of divisive actions that incense the haters by his blatant disrespect but also include a explanation that the brainwashed Team Breezy can parrot and use to strengthen their persecution complexes. Even if Chris Brown only has three more of these stunts left before he goes over the top, (even though there are probably many more,) he has made enough money to retire from fame completely for the rest of his life. It’s a win-win that can’t go wrong, unless his inherent shitbirdiness breaks through and he starts punting dyslexic kittens or something.

Just worth thinking about.

At 8:46 a.m. on the morning of September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 11 struck World Trade Center Tower 1. Rescorla heard the explosion and saw the Tower burning from his office window. When a Port Authority announcement came over the P.A. system urging people to stay at their desks, Rescorla ignored the announcement, grabbed his bullhorn, walk-talkie and cell phone, and began systematically ordering Morgan Stanley employees evacuate, including the 1,000 employees in WTC 5. He directed people down a stairwell from the 44th floor, continuing to calm employees after the building lurched violently following the crash of the second plane 38 floors above. Morgan Stanley executive Bill McMahon stated that even a group of 250 people visiting the offices for a stockbroker training class knew what to do because they had been shown the nearest hallway. Having calmed his men in Vietnam by singing Cornish songs from his youth, Rescorla did the same in the stairwell, singing, “Men of Cornwall stand ye steady. It cannot be ever said ye for the battle were not ready. Stand and never yield!” Between songs, Rescorla called his wife, telling her, “Stop crying. I have to get these people out safely. If something should happen to me, I want you to know I’ve never been happier. You made my life.” After successfully evacuating the majority of Morgan Stanley’s 2,687 employees, he went back inside the building. When one of his colleagues told him he too had to evacuate the World Trade Center, Rescorla replied, “As soon as I make sure everyone else is out”. He was last seen on the 10th floor, heading upward, shortly before the tower collapsed. His remains were never found.

After seeing conspiracy theories and debates on the merit of 9/11 humor all morning, I got to discover this and remember there are things worth remembering about 9/11 that don’t make me feel horrible.
