• Brooklyn Bafflers: Poet Jennifer Nelson will be reading tonight at the Brooklyn Public Library. Two of Nelson’s weird, brilliant poems appeared in Baffler no. 29, where she reminded us “It’s crude to claim our technology / moralizes that of the past: inside the a/c / remains in fact the daughter / of the emperor I have conquered / blowing down my neck . . .” Ugly Duckling Presse recently interviewed Nelson on her new book, Aim at The Centaur Stealing Your Wife.

• Elon Musk has swept in and won the Baffler office pool by introducing an Uber for robots.

• We at The Baffler would like to wish a very happy ninetieth birthday to HRH Queen Elizabeth II. While researchers at the University of Nottingham etched their birthday greeting onto the hair of a corgi, and her majesty’s relatives are busy providing her with ever more uber-fashionable progeny, we’ll stick with the Sex Pistols classic (also the inspiration for our aptly titled Baffler anthology, No Future For You.)
