Loving this but haven’t seen it become mainstream yet the same way para speakers are becoming..

From Adam Curtis's must read blog post on surveillance,symbolic logic, ELIZA and the funny old things we do.

The distortion of reality in the report is the true report about reality.

Dream Sequence from Decoder ft. William S. Burroughs.

This sound has played a huge part in my interests as a researcher. My grandmother during the war used to mask the sound of the ‘doodlebugs’ with her radio… The sound indicates their presence but the terror lies in the silence which follows as their engines cut out and the bomb drops to its target. The radio would mask the process as it was too painful to experience otherwise. The home in which my grandmother lived would always have three radios playing in separate rooms (all different channels sometimes). The association was a comfort that lasted the rest of her life.  

It’s absurd to say that music doesn’t represent the real and therefore it’s an empty metaphor. Every theorist who hasn’t a real place for music ends up with one-dimensional melancholia.
