Most people are under the impression the ADHD is somehow a 'deficit of attention,' but it could equally and quite appropriately be framed as having higher than normal neurological requirements for stimuli.

When ADHD kids especially seem to bounce from subject to subject "mindlessly," what they're doing is not just randomly slopping through whatever without paying attention. They're running through lists of potentially stimulating subjects until they find one that suits their high requirements.

Public Enemy has just released a new version of their 1989 anthem "Fight the Power" (featured in the Spike Lee breakout "Do the Right Thing") along with a video featuring Nas, Rapsody, Black Thought, Jahi, YG and QuestLove.

I am from the /x/ generation:

5 years late to the party, but finally watching John Wick. It's bad in some ways, but I'm enjoying it a lot.
