"Rather than circling the wagons as other media industries did (to no good outcome, it has to be acknowleged) publishers need to learn the more recent lessons from music and film and consider, for example, providing digital copies as standard with hardback editions."
Tim Waterstone's claim that ebooks are in decline isn't persuasive – and there are far more urgent matters for readers to discuss

Eloquently put, as always, by Calpernia: "These arriviste extremists have weaponized terminology like cisgender, created in the sterile labs of academia for use in the classroom, and plundered other established social movements for an arsenal of response-silencing buzzwords like privilege checking that all create the same result: intimidation at the threat of being labeled a bigot by someone whose oppression outweighs your own." #dragrace

Avril's original is not terrible but hearing it makes Kelly Clarkson's version seem even more impressive. Granted the production is simpler here (as it was never 'finished' for release) but the difference a truly great voice makes to a track cannot be underestimated.
