The Glaswegians’ debut showcases a band that bridges styles and eras on the strength of its own charisma. Though it can be ominous, even aggressive, Chvrches’ electro-pop songs maintain a disarming fizziness.
New Chvrches! The Bones of What You Believe.
I’m into it!!

[Dave] Chappelle wasn’t having a meltdown. This was a Black artist shrugging the weight of White consumption, deciding when enough was enough. This isn’t the first time Chappelle has done so and it isn’t the first time his behavior has been characterized as a meltdown.
There is a long history of asking African-Americans to endure racism silently; it’s characterized as grace, as strength. Chappelle’s Connecticut audience, made up of largely young White males, demanded a shuck and jive. Men who seemed to have missed the fine satire of the Chappelle show demanded he do characters who, out of the context of the show look more like more racist tropes, than mockery of America’s belief in them.
When he expressed shock that he’d sat there and been yelled at for so long, people yelled they paid him. They felt paying for a show meant they could verbally harass him, direct him in any tone of voice, as though they’d bought him.
Dave Chappelle Didn’t Meltdown (via brashblacknonbeliever)
There is a belief that it’s not heckling if you like the person. There is a belief that if you interrupt a comic to tell him/her that you love him/her, that if you quote characters and jokes and loudly scream them, you’re doing nothing wrong. That preventing him from telling jokes, the thing you ACTUALLY paid him to do, by screaming at him, was somehow okay because you “weren’t heckling”.
I do not share this belief. I am of the belief that you have every right to laugh or not laugh, and answer a direct question posed by the comic, and that’s it. Anything more is a distraction and a disruption. As always, there’s a reason he/she has a mic and you don’t.
Everything i’ve been looking to say today re: Chappelle’s performance last night has just been said.
I’m not sure when or why it’s become so commonplace to heckle comics attempting to do their act, attempting to deliver material, attempting to make you laugh, at a show YOU likely paid good money to see.
