The Death Set – “They Come to Get Us”

10 Apr

Experimental electronic band The Death Set, bring us a music video featuring an army of pop culture surrealism through the streets of New York City for there single “They Come to Get Us”.

If you like this song, i’d suggest listening to the official remix by Designer Drugs. Its basically just an extended version of this song, but i prefer it over the original by 10 fold.

Killer Mike – “Reagan”

20 Mar

A hyper-political R.A.P. Music track by hyper-political rapper, Killer Mike

Im not the type to get too deep about most things, especially politics, but Killer Mike brings a different type of rap via a psychedelic hyper-political music video which really brings light to why things are so difficult for some. To how the American system got so messed. Ironic considering Reagan helped America dig itself out of its economic problem, which ultimately lead to the start of “Reagan era” and its future ramifications.

A wise man once told me “politics will always be politics.”

Expo 1967 and 1970 videos

21 Jan

As Donald Drumpf enters the white house and we enter deeper into the historical abyss of late-capitalism it might be worth to remember just how cheerful things seemed some 50 years ago, the 1967 Montreal World Expo and in the Osaka 1970 Expo.

World exhibitions are a genre that has kind of passed on from the world, which is a shame. In the past they were used to offer a vision of the future, and though those futures seem kind of naive today, I kind of miss those people who tried giving us a universalisitc and hopeful vision for the planet and mankind. This might be a time to revive the world Expo (there’s one scheduled to happen in Dubai in 2020).

Watch the last two minutes of the clip from the Osaka 1970 expo and you are in for a treat with all those Japanese dancers waving the flags of all the nations of the earth. Oh the camaraderie!

Ch8se – Saving the planet with fashion

12 Mar

Many of us want to change the world, but don’t know where to begin. Even worse, in the capitalistic system in which we live almost every act of consumption is toxic by nature and is being used to fuel the brutal destruction of the planet and its resources, so we are constantly destroying the very foundation for the lives of our families, friends and ourselves. Is there any other way? But then, sometimes you encounter an idea that really manages to challenge how we think about consumerism and supply an alternative. Ch8se is such an idea. Based on the notion that fashion brands spend the vast majority of their money not on employees, materials or social and environmental justice but on expensive and often inane advertising campaigns, (the money spend on one single page ad in a top fashion magazine could plant 1.5 million trees or feed 2,000 kids for a year!!!) it asks – what if we took all that money that we as consumers indirectly give for such wasteful commercial campaigns and gave it to a brand which is based on social and ecological values – so that our spending money is no longer directed to toxic consumerism destroying the planet but to making it healthier by planting trees, funding education to third world children etc – all while getting first grade fashion items which not only looks great but also feels good to wear. The Ch8se campaign which is currently featured on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo is just one of those initiatives that really spark your imagination. Check out their video, and consider supporting the cause in any way possible.
