It's night time in America, which means it's time for Shacknews Evening Reading.

It's night time in America, which means it is time for Shacknews Evening Reading. Let's officially close out the day at Shacknews.


In case you missed it at Shacknews:


And now... Other Stuff from the Internet!

Alex Terrible adds demonic vocals to DOOM's BFG Division

I didn't think it was possible for this song to sound even more metal, but this cover certainly does just that.


One way to deal with the "dog days" of Summer...

Dogs rule.


Shout out to all the lurkers out there!

You make the Internet go 'round.


Don't lose your head, Snorlax!

Tough day for Snorlax.


I don't smoke or eat McNuggets, but this Dall-E AI-generated series of images speaks to me

Sometimes we are all McNuggets in need of a cigarette.


Video game and tech companies react to today's repeal of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court 

The video game industry along with many technology firms are making very clear statements in support of bodily autonomy and reproductive rights.


"A riot is the language of the unheard."

The words of Martin Luther King, Jr. still carry a strong message of the importance of civil disobedience in the face of a corrupt government.


"When the pendulum swings too far in one direction it will go back" - Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

It is important to remind ourselves that, while things are certainly getting worse for Americans at this moment, it is not impossible for us to reverse course. Even if it feels that way tonight.


And that will have to do for this Friday edition of Shacknews Evening Reading. We usually remind our readers to support us by downloading Shackpets or with a Mercury subscription here, but it is probably more fitting to provide a link to abortion charities.
