Welcome to the age of anger | The Guardian

This article by Pankaj Mishra in The Guardian is a fascinating article on the challenges to a liberal society.
An essential reading to understand the stuff that’s going on right now like the Brexit , rise of the European far-right and Trump.
It’s a Long read but best analysis I’ve read.

The largely Anglo-American intellectual assumptions forged by the cold war and its jubilant aftermath are an unreliable guide to today’s chaos – and so we must turn to the ideas of an earlier era of volatility. It is a moment for thinkers such as Sigmund Freud, who warned in 1915 that the “primitive, savage and evil impulses of mankind have not vanished in any individual”, but are simply waiting for the opportunity to show themselves again. Certainly, the current conflagration has brought to the surface what Friedrich Nietzsche called “ressentiment” – “a whole tremulous realm of subterranean revenge, inexhaustible and insatiable in outbursts.”

Welcome to the age of anger  by 

The seismic events of 2016 have revealed a world in chaos – and one that old ideas of liberal rationalism can no longer explain.

#Saveourculture 3 Playlist

I just made the #Saveourculture 3 playlist on Spotify, so if anyone wants in on this action

 

The third instalment of #saveourculture welcomes a hero of modern house music as Jamie Jones touches down at Great Suffolk Street. Known for his definitive Hot Natured imprint and Ibiza residency under the Paradise banner, since breaking through in 2012, Jones remains one of the world’s biggest DJs for his infectious brand of party tunes. A close friend of Jones and regular DJ partner, Craig Richards steps up to join him on the decks, while enigmatic wizard KiNK brings his acclaimed live set to round off the Arch 1 bill.

Arch 2 hosts one of techno’s most established forces, Luke Slater. Commonly operating under several aliases like L.B. Dub Corp and Planetary Assault Systems, Slater’s career has a painted history spanning the whole of techno. The veteran DJ headlines Arch 2 bringing an onslaught of brute force as Luke Slater. He is joined by Ostgut Ton stalwart Function. With a sound forged most recently in Berlin’s Berghain and profiled last year on his celebrated mix for the club, Function can typically be identified for throwing a dynamic blend to the tested 4/4 paradigm. Luke Slater and Function are joined by fabric resident and tech-house aficionado, Terry Francis.

All profits for the night will be donated to fabric’s #saveourculture campaign.

Fabric London to close permanently

This is a shocker 😤 iconic nightclub @fabriclondon will close permanently because of ‘drug culture’. Shutting down fabric does not mean the gov have solved a drug problem.
The ironic thing is that they are planning build multi million pounds flats for bankers to do coke in.

fabric had some really good gigs and the vibe of the crowed was really fun. 😡


iPhone7 :)

Sound the nerd alarms, It is almost that time of the year. #iPhone7 is expected to be announced today. Only thing I want to know will it finally beat the Nokia 3310? :p

"It's a dark day for British Democracy. I'm really shocked and deeply saddened by the murder of ‪#‎JoCoxMP‬ . Her poor children and husband waking up without their mummy and wife today. Anyone who uses this tragedy for political purposes should be ashamed. Good people are so rare."

CF2JWN SCHINDLER'S LIST (1993) OLIWIA DABROWSKA STEVEN SPIELBERG (DIR) 025 MOVIESTORE COLLECTION LTD

Schindler’s List: A significant and captivating film that everyone needs to experience.

This was my 3rd attempt of watching the Schindler’s List. In past I had walked out of this film, as it was really hard for me to sit through it.

The Holocaust is undoubtedly one of the most significant and horrifying events of the twentieth century. From 1938 to 1945, approximately six million Jews were slaughtered, but one man ‘Oskar Schindler’ (played by Liam Neeson) decided to make a difference, by saving the lives of more than 1100 men, women and children.

Schindler’s List is captivating because the story it tells, the characters it portrays and the way it was shot feels very real to the audience. The black-and-white cinematography in here is magnificent. It helped to capture the ‘bleakness’ of the Holocaust, and also helped in getting a feel for the era.

I have always been a fan of Steven Spielberg. Call me shallow, but Jurassic Park is one of my favorite films. It offered me everything from a piece of cinema I want. But Schindler’s List is by far his biggest accomplishment.
I personally think he didn’t make this film as an epic film. It feels like this movie has a very personal meaning to him.

I never understood how the human race could get so low.
What’s really tragic about all this is how we are not able to learn from our past, from Nazi Germany to ISIS little has changed.

 

Miike-Snow-Genghis-Khan-2015

Musical Friday: Miike Snow – Genghis Khan

Miike Snow in this song is comparing himself to Genghis Khan who united the Mongol tribes and conquered all of China, and was known to have many women in his life.

Miike implies that he becomes irrationally, even violently jealous thinking of his lover sleeping with other people.

Its a good song for all the Jealous men out there.

 

Miike-Snow-Genghis-Khan-2015[Verse 1]

I know there’s no form
And no labels to put on
To this thing we keep
And dip into when we need
And I don’t have the right
To ask where you go at night
But the waves hit my head
To think someone’s in your bed

[Chorus]
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
I don’t want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
Don’t want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me

[Verse 2]
And the lights, they glow
Like I’ve just lost the World War
And the scene slips away
To the evenness I fake
It’s a shit old world
Cause I don’t really want you, girl
But you can’t be free
Cause I’m selfish, I’m obscene

[Chorus]
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
I don’t want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
Don’t want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me

[Bridge]
I wanna make up my mind
But I don’t know myself
No I don’t know myself
I wanna make up my mind
But I don’t know myself
No I don’t know myself
I wanna make up my mind
But I don’t know myself
No I don’t know myself

[Chorus]
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
I don’t want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
Don’t want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me

  There is only one question thats bothering me today.Considering how ridiculously popular Pokémon is I’m shocked there’s still no live action movie.

Whoever makes this live action movie will soak up all the nostalgia cash.
