    'Woke capitalism' in 2020

    its good to keep tabs on the new ways that advertising is offensive, obviously it's always been an insult, but good to triangulate with other people so that you know you haven't gone mental

    The Heavy

    saw someone called MICROCORPS as well. it sounded apocalyptic in the flesh, just low end and nothing else at all. at the start it looked ridiculous, some weirdo in a hoodie pulled up by the drawstring so you could only see his eyes, making a racket to about five people, but there was a lot there...

    The Heavy

    saw guttersnipe this weekend, still reeling a bit but probably one of the heaviest things i've seen. absolutely painful and unpleasant sound, all harsh high end played at high volume, but nevertheless somehow an appealing thing to be around, a transmission of energy or something

    what music do you 'return' to?

    OMG this is the best thing I've ever heard. It's a more distilled version of the best Chemical Brothers tunes.

    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    I feel we are falling into a trap and I can already imagine the replies that are going to follow- probably a discussion where we go through rehearsed points that we've all heard before, if this goes anything like how this discussion goes in real life - yes if that is actually what happened, then...

    The Weather.

    my take on Katz's is that it's alright, actually quite nice if you're there at odd hours and can pop in and get something small. the queue is phenomen better studied than participated in though. the knish place down the road is a joke, hilarious, amazing that it exists. Afghan food is great...

    The Weather.

    its a bit like the east village, just rock up and walk around, go into a few bars, hang out in the park, get an incredibly overpriced sandwich full of pastrami and an incredibly shit reheated knish, you don't really need a guidebook

    The Weather.

    nah, kabul is surprisingly cold. super dry air, outrageously dry, dryer than england by a million miles, nothing like the nyc summer. it gets up to 35ish in the summer but its more bearable than nyc. and then in the winter its properly cold and it snows, although not quite as cold as NYC. you'll...

    when swordsmen of different styles connect

    Tidal makes algo-playlists for me, I don't ask it to it just does it, one of them is rap, and for the last few months its decided to put porn tune 'Lick' by Shenseea and Megan Thee Stallion on that playlist, not just once, but every four songs.

    The Gentrification of Culture

    On art historically (like up to the 90s), I have no idea at all really. For literature, you're right obviously, there's basically no barrier to entry with the actual production of writing. There is a big barrier to doing writing full time rather than squeezed in around a job, and I think that's...

    The Gentrification of Culture

    TV is an interesting one coz in the UK at least it feels like the most working class artform. Incredibly democratic in terms of dissemination, mostly free, everyone has one, very responsive to what people actually like rather than critical mediation. But my impression is that the people involved...

    The Gentrification of Culture

    talking about art gallery art : it's millionaire land, in terms of the people who buy it, who work in the industry, the people who make it, and the people who wander into galleries. so not surprising that it sometimes speaks to quite a narrow range of concerns. obviously there is grit in the...

    The Gentrification of Culture

    music is the only artform that isn't mostly made by fancy people. films, visual art, TV, dance, all populated by people who have mostly always had a lot of cash. music seems to generally escape that; in fact i think a lot of people on here would probably agree that the good music quite often...
