NYT’s Best Rock Playlist for Apple Music

I wanted an Apple Music version of the playlist at the end of this New York Times article. So I made this:

I love playlists like this, and I realize there’s no lack of them, but I’m terrible at finding them.

Late Night

“It’s time for the Jedi to end.”

NERD ALERT!! Another Star Wars trailer. Here we go again.

The Last Jedi

Ahch-To is the new Degobah.

The Last Jedi


The Last Jedi

:crying: (Also, I like how similar this shot is to Rey’s and that the theme played with it is Rey’s.)

The Last Jedi

So no more jokes about how hard it is to understand him with the “apparatus”?

The Last Jedi

Old books!

The Last Jedi

If it’s time for the Jedi to end then why is Luke training Rey?

The Last Jedi

What the hell are these things and will the toys also dump red ink all over the place?

The Last Jedi

Finn gets a raw deal in this trailer. I can’t wait to see where he winds up.

The Last Jedi

Poe just can’t catch a break with his X-wings.

The Last Jedi

I’m glad we haven’t seen the last of the “spitty” lightsaber.

The Last Jedi

Jesus, Luke, we get it. You wanted to teach your friend’s kid about the Force. Now your school’s been burned to the ground, your friend is dead, and the political system that was holding the galaxy together has been destroyed. You fucked up. Don’t worry. Rey’s got this.

The Last Jedi

Five bucks says this one ends with someone losing a hand.

The Letter

Elizabeth Warren Silenced by Republican Senators

Here’s the letter she was reading…

Dear Senator Thurmond,

I write to express my sincere opposition to the confirmation of Jefferson B. Sessions as a federal district court judge for the Southern District of Alabama. My professional and personal roots in Alabama are deep and lasting. Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts. Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters. For this reprehensible conduct, he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship.

I regret that a long-standing commitment prevents me from appearing in person to testify against this nominee. However, I have attached a copy of my statement opposing Mr. Sessions’ confirmation and I request that my statement as well as this letter be made a part of the hearing record.

I do sincerely urge you to oppose the confirmation of Mr. Sessions.
