Arcade Fire – “Black Mirror”

27 Feb

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.

stretching moments of time into space…

There is this beautiful word in the (not always pretty) german language: Augenblick. It means something similar to proverbial “blink of an eye”. But while “blinking” is the ephemeral moment that interrupts the view, “Blick” is more like “glance”, an ephemeral mode of seeing. Now dear old Mr. Goethe has phrased “Der Augenblick ist Ewigkeit”. This sentence simply asserts that the “Augenblick”, the ephemeral moment is eternity. While this might look like a contradiction at first, it actually describes the most common experience: every single Augenblick passes instantly — and this one thing will never change.
