Catching us up with the rest of the world, a Boing Boing article informs us that the top trending video globally (currently with over 186 million views since June 2017) features a masked singer in a costume that resembles a clutch of oysters, if anything.
The song is titled “Until we become dust” and is featured as an entry in a televised game show called The Mask Singer. Don’t know whether this was the show’s ultimate winner, but globally it’s a hit. What am I missing?! (h/t to AGD)
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
