Decolonize the New Indian Agent: Bernard Valcourt
Meet the new face of federal power tasked with managing “the Indian Problem”. We couldn’t cover up those eyes…we needed you to see his particular wild, drunken glare of Conservative crazy first.
Valcourt steps into his new role of Aboriginal Affairs minister, filling the disgraced shoes of former AANDC Minister John Duncam, with the appropriate Harper credentials:
1. “Veteran right-wing politician”
2. Former Associate Minister of National Defence
Because we all know right wing militants and the Armed Forces are the only way Settler Colonial states know how to deal with Indigenous issues.
Expect even less negotiating and more strong-arm PC tactics to force native complicity and consent.

props to the person referencing barbara kruger for decolonizingmedia

A FANTASY IS NOT A PROMISSORY NOTE, CASHABLE IN THE BANK OF THE REAL

“Let’s invent a word so haunted, so transformational–so transitional–that the moment you type it your soul is sucked through it &amp; into communication with &amp; exile from everything. “Everything” being the truth about the world, in the sense that it is the world. “The truth about the world” being that it’s everything in the world–&amp; though you were always in the world, now you are in there with it, which is a different matter altogether. It is not a truth you wanted to know, this quality of the world being able to lie alongside itself &amp; yet remain a single thing. But you spoke the word. You turned the key.”

In honor of the new Moog Sub Phatty analog synthesizer’s release today, experimental multi-genre music producer, Flying Lotus, and Adult Swim veteran, Adam ‘Lilfuchs’ Fuchs collaborated on a short animation called Moog Sub Phatty: New Machine For Living. You can hear the new Sub Phatty analog synthesizer in Flying Lotus’s original score for the animation.

Very interesting interview with the Mychael Danna, the composer for the Life of Pi.  Takes you inside the process.  I want to watch the film again just for the soundtrack.

Several times in the past, we’ve noted guns/bullets/gun parts/weapons being repurposed. But this is a particularly interesting example: 

Newark Mayor Cory Booker promoted his jewelry line, “The Caliber Collection,” Thursday night on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show. The bracelets are made from metal “from 250 guns and bullet casings seized by the Newark Police Department” as part of the city’s gun buy-back program, according to the line’s website.
