    I had no idea this was a trend. Christ.

    Yeah, and the violation of the sanctity of a wake as well. I mean, I know shit like that happens, but it's rare you see it even in a film, let alone what's supposed to be an entertaining advert for an artist.

    It's so dark - I mean, drill videos gave up music video's obsession with the beauty of the star by masking up. This just gives up the idea of entertainment to me. Context-less murders (I guess lyrics give a bit of context)

    Do we really want out?

    https://thefirethisti.me/ This is probably a good example - about how machismo plays a huge role in the construction of "peace" and power-sharing. https://thefirethisti.me/2021/03/28/69-the-entrenched-manliness-of-ethnic-power-sharing-peace-agreements-with-aida-a-hozic/ And this is one of...

    Do we really want out?

    Various contemporary/recent political struggles but the guy behind is Lebanese and he gets on a variety of global voices so it's not as parochial as some podcasts can be. Talks to lots of people from the Arab world, about struggles in China, Eastern Europe etc. Left/anarchist though he's...

    Do we really want out?

    New episode of my fave podcast. I think this touches on some of the stuff you mentioned above, Version. Memory and what this means, and erosion of the sense of class. The middle of the podcast is them trying to grapple with the crisis of meaning this has produced. Not coming up with any answers...

    Amazing! Thanks for the mix - it's the closeness to drill that gets me, those piano licks in the first tune.

    Anyone up on this Skeng geezer: Really good if you're in the mood for melodic nihilism . Reminds me of UK drill a lot.

    Dinner of the Day.

    Hard to manage stuffed full of steak. Would be better to do it the day after, all that red meat pumping through the system

    Do we really want out?

    Totally true. Economic constraint and access to therapy is a huge consideration. I just offer up as an approximate answer to the general question posed by the thread.

    Do we really want out?

    To go back to an earlier branch in the thread one reason I'm interested in both therapy and magic is because if done well, both generate real change. There's a lot problematic in both fields of endeavour (or can be) and they're individual rather than collective paths but still.... in fact that...

    Do we really want out?

    Idk you'd have to ask communist. Maybe @john eden could enlighten as to the leftcom position on revolution, it's inevitablity or ...not? Don't forget there have been plenty of revolutions all across the Arab world in the last 10 years, it's a bit parochial to assume otherwise

    Do we really want out?

    Also to be go back to beginning of thread, at any one time, you have the options for out that structural forces grant you. This has changed a lot in my lifetime. Used to be, you could squat/sign on/live in a van for a good while with like minded folk so live a life outside the system. These...
