  • Okay, this is kind of long, but it’s worth it.

    "Bassist Marc Najjar teamed with drummer Nate Bauman to put together 100 of the most iconic bass riffs starting with 1955’s “Ain’t That A Shame” by Fats Domino and winding up the 2013 track “My God is the Sun” by Queens of the Stone Age.”

    There’s a lot of problems with this, keeping in tune for 100 different songs, flipping from pick to fingers over and over with weird transitions (and could the sound board guy fucking turn the bass level up in the mix for this, for once in your goddamn life?) but what I love about this is how many of these songs are identifiable by their baseline alone. So much credit is given to guitar music, but as my old bass teacher used to say, guitar with bass is like a painting without a frame.

    this is what they thought 2015 would be like in the 80s

    i’m sorry we have failed you

    THERE IS STILL TIME

    they were right about the fashion tho

    Look, Hill Valley 2015 is about overly ironic retro, gratuitous sequels, ridiculous custom clothing, constant police surveilance. Except for the flying cars and the Cubs winning the world series, they were pretty on point.

    But when Jennifer Lawrence did it, it was “quirky” and “cute”. Fuck you White America.

    Making this racist is just…damn. You know she was paid to perform there, right? And she had rehearsed, she knew exactly where the cameras were going to be, and she was just so fucking punk to throw a finger. Rock and Roll!

    This was a deliberate breaking of the rules by a complete fucking moron. It was a meaningless adolescent gesture. I don’t believe in censorship but it’s the NFL’s party and she got paid to be there. But yeah, go with racism. From an organization that that employs thousands of POC and pays them millions.

    Jesus MIA and her fans can go fuck themselves.

  • "I will have an undergraduate class, let’s say a young white male student, politically-correct, who will say: ‘I am only a bourgeois white male, I can’t speak.’ …I say to them: ‘Why not develop a certain degree of rage against the history that has written such an abject script for you that you are silenced?’ Then you begin to investigate what it is that silences you, rather than take this very determinist position - since my skin colour is this, since my sex is this, I cannot speak… From this position, then, I say you will of course not speak in the same way about the Third World material, but if you make it your task not only to learn what is going on there through language, through specific programmes of study, but also at the same time through a historical critique of your position as the investigating person, then you will have earned the right to criticize, you be heard. When you take the position of not doing your homework - ‘I will not criticize because of my accident of birth, the historical accident’ - that is the much more pernicious position."
