"A free press is essential to a healthy democracy. There is a purpose to journalism, and it is not just to entertain. It is not to pander to political power, big corporations and rich men. Newspapers have what amounts in the end to a constitutional duty to tell their readers the truth."
 
No less prominent a figure than Peter Oborne resigns from the Daily Telegraph, writes no-holds-barred savaging of his former employers - "The coverage of HSBC in Britain's Daily Telegraph is a fraud on its readers. If major newspapers allow corporations to influence their content for fear of losing advertising revenue, democracy itself is in peril."

Worth reading the whole thing.

    The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

The video is really impressive, I wish I'd known about it while it was actually running.
Pixel is an innovative dance performance conceived by French performance artists Adrien Mondot and Claire Bardainne, known collectively as the Adrien M / Claire B Company, in collaboration with hip-hop choregrapher Cie Kafig. The hour-long performance incorporates a host of digital projection

I've not seen videomapping combined with dance in such a fashion - normally it is just one dancer and nearly as well-executed

Return to the 36th chamber was a fantastic movie. Anything even slightly connected to that has the potential to be good.

'The autonomous region of Rojava, as it exists today, is one of few bright spots – albeit a very bright one – to emerge from the tragedy of the Syrian revolution. Having driven out agents of the Assad regime in 2011, and despite the hostility of almost all of its neighbours, Rojava has not only maintained its independence, but is a remarkable democratic experiment. Popular assemblies have been created as the ultimate decision-making bodies, councils selected with careful ethnic balance (in each municipality, for instance, the top three officers have to include one Kurd, one Arab and one Assyrian or Armenian Christian, and at least one of the three has to be a woman), there are women’s and youth councils, and, in a remarkable echo of the armed Mujeres Libres (Free Women) of Spain, a feminist army, the “YJA Star” militia (the “Union of Free Women”, the star here referring to the ancient Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar), that has carried out a large proportion of the combat operations against the forces of Islamic State.'
David Graeber: Amid the Syrian warzone a democratic experiment is being stamped into the ground by Isis. That the wider world is unaware is a scandal

little-known facts about internet history.
Everyone knows the music business is tough. Gaining an edge is so hard that some musicians write hundreds of songs a year and still barely manage to scrape by.Shawn Rycroft only had to write one.On a November morning in 1991, a tune popped into the sound engineer’s head. He liked it, so he scribb...

So this is my profile-thing for a festival in Romania this summer. I guess if more people reshare it (publicly) my chances of getting booked are better, or something?

I'm quite amused that it currently says I play dnb ;)

Went there on a quiet and rainy Sunday night, and had an excellent meal - the server was very attentive and all of the dishes were extremely well prepared and delicious. Living in London I eat quite a lot of Indian and Indian-inspired food and this spot definitely stands out! I'd highly recommend the duck vindaloo arepas and the artichoke pakora.

Delicious food and tasty mezcal. Definitely the best tacos I have had in London, and the tamales were also quite tasty. Very fresh ingredients and reasonable prices. I'll definitely be coming back!

Excellent cocktails - had the bartender's choice from two different bartenders and had a delicious drink both times. Nice lighting and atmosphere as well.

Some of the best ramen I've had in London, delicious and fresh! Expect a bit of a wait to get seated, but the food should come out very quickly once you've sat down and ordered.
