The spirited man says things are about to get heavy, for we are amidst our move from crisis mode toward humanity's next period of flourishing.

The video shows how we are currently toward the end of our third cycle of an 80 year block (from 1780), with the fourth cycle starting around 2028-2030.

An interesting theory.

Reminds me of that Mrs Kearns interview in Shutter Island.

I don't know the world anymore.

They tell me there are... televisions?

Voices and faces, coming from a box. — He? — I hear enough voices already!

"20,000 metal boxes carrying goods"

I love this unpretentious and dull phrasing, because of course how else would you describe this if it weren't so normal, e.g. to someone a century ago?

🕺🏼 New and catchy 70s-style ska tune from the Netherlands; about low women representation in politics; encouraging voters to select a women on the list in the upcoming elections.

(Made easy given gender indicators in the party lists on our voting ballots; Yes, it's complicated.)

Take a break and spend seven minutes back in 1973 during this moment when Stevie Wonder and friends stopped by to perform a cookin' rendition of "Superstition" for the people in their neighborhood:

"How to explain net neutrality" by Tikue Anazodo (for iAfrikan).

Makes two interesting analogies to help access the "big picture" issues.

Real example: neutrality failed in TV, with monopolies, complete channel packs, central budget control, and high barriers to entry for people to reach each other.

Hyphetical example: neutrality in road and postal infrastructure. What if it failed?

There's a lot more to it, but it's a good start.

So apparently the whole reason Smash Mouth's "All Star" starts with an acapella "some-BODY" is because they borrowed it from the Barenaked Ladies' "It's been one week." switchedonpop.com/episodes/ant

"Last Christmas", I heard it far too often and didn't think much of it, just another cheesy-engineered pop hit. Or is it?

In this episode, composer Chilly Gonzales treats us to a musical guide through the famous song.

I now believe it's more akin to an opera piece, following the structure of a rap song, with experimental jazz influences. Wicked, right?
