How a person could uncaringly, lazily throw their trash on the ground instead of in the proper receptacle was absolutely beyond me. Then again, I was raised in the '80s, a time when the odd conflation of hippie environmentalism with the...  Read more

I was nine when Napster hit its peak. The fallout and legislation started swarming when I was barely in middle school. By the end of 6th grade I had learned how to skip ads and download AC/DC songs off the internet, the year after my cousin introduced me to the p2p network. I think the first I downloaded was the silly, surface-level rebel video...  Read more
