One of the most awe-inspiring artists I have ever had the delight of stumbling upon, Kishi Bashi’s live performances are always charged with electricity. His unique combination of symphonic composition mixed with modern looping technology creates a sound unlike anything I’ve ever heard. This is my favorite performance of his, and I wanted to share it to celebrate the gorgeous Spring weather upon us.
It’s no secret that millennials are constantly seeking validation. Oh wait, I phrased that incorrectly. That actually is a secret.
I recently read an article about crying that brought to light an old point I’d cooked up. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to reframe feminine traits that the patriarchy has vilified. The subtle inculcations of at a male-based society can seem quite benign at first, then dastardly pernicious.

The more tongue-tied Mrs Palin seemed, the more intently her supporters backed her. The more the media mocked her, the more her fan base exulted. Mr Trump has elevated that approach into an art form. In an age when knowledge is a mark of elitism, ignorance is power. It is also great marketing.
Ever feel a sense of cultural déjà vu with all the panic around new technologies? The BBC does a great job of breaking down all the times our new developments have given us a sense of dread at the preponderance of our race. Fear not, dear reader, with the first panic in 400 B.C., we have a long history of reconciling our fears with our technological ambitions.
After Bell’s telephone patent, people feared that eve spirits could travel down the wire. Lightning can. But evil spirits can’t.
