Music video for “Black Mirror” by Canadian alternative band Arcade Fire off the album “Neon Bible” I guess you could say that Father has brought you all down his bible to read for this Monday.
Arcade fire is an amazing alternative band, i would highly recommend giving them the old listen. Either there first album “Funeral” or there second “Neon Bible” is a good album to start on for them, “Funeral” if you like more folky psychedelic music, or “Neon Bible” if you like more dark alternative type psychedelic music.
On a side note, whenever i listen to this song or see it in my music i always remember the British anthology series “Black Mirror”, which is now on Netflix as an original series. I wont spoil much but its a psychological anthology series very reminiscent of “The Twilight zone” only instead of being in a warped reality of the 7th dimension, its in the very near future of ours. If you want to watch a really well crafted and good thinking show, then this is for you.
There is something psychedelic about this spray that keeps you dry no matter what they throw at you…
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!

Kurzgesagt take you on a spectacular philosophical excursion on the eternal question: what are you?
Tonight, when you sit down with your family for a Christmas meal, don’t forget who Santa Claus really is, and what he stands for…
On top of the cool psychedelic visuals in this video, you get a nice dose of modern day philosophy to help give your brain some thinking food. A 2 for 1 deal i’d say.
