Ambience - Brian Eno - LUX 1

Music • Views: 29,685

When the chattering of the cable classes begins to get on your last nerve, there’s the new album by Brian Eno.

LUX is Brian Eno’s first solo album on Warp Records and his first solo album since 2005’s Another Day On Earth. It finds him expanding upon the types of themes and sonic textures that were present on such classic albums as Music For Films, Music For Airports and Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks. Eno sees it as a continuation of his ‘Music for Thinking’ project that includes Discreet Music (1975) and Neroli (1993).

LUX is one of Eno’s most ambitious works to date; it is a 75-minute composition in twelve sections that evolved from a work currently housed in the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria in Turin, Italy. The album is Eno’s third for Warp, following two collaborative albums Small Craft on a Milk Sea (with Jon Hopkins and Leo Abrahams) and Drums Between The Bells (with Rick Holland).

After Obsessively Attacking Obama for Years, #Breitbart.com Decides He’s “Irrelevant”

A cry for help
Wingnuts • Views: 28,480

For years, breitbart.com editor Joel Pollak has been attacking absolutely everything Barack Obama does, writing hundreds of thousands of words, spending every waking minute watching videos and reading transcripts, looking for any little phrase he can twist and distort, poring over photographs looking for the least flattering ones, in a way that can only be described as manic and obsessive.

But today he informs us that … wait for it … Obama is irrelevant!

I swear, these people are just not right in the head: KING OBAMA THE IRRELEVANT!

The most absurd sentences from this ridiculous article:

The “fiscal cliff” fiasco has made it clear that President Barack Obama is entirely irrelevant to the everyday task of governing.

[…]

He is not interested in it, and he is not good at it.

[…]

But he does nothing positive for the country.

[…]

The deal that took shape on Capitol Hill over the past few days and weeks happened almost without President Obama’s involvement—and despite his hyper-partisan press conference yesterday, which nearly poisoned the entire process.

[…]

Vice President Joe Biden—an incompetent poseur—is essentially running the country.

[…]

It is almost impossible to imagine Obama doing anything else except making speeches.

[…]

Even as a symbol, Obama is failing.

[…]

People only like him when they can forget the reality of who he is and what he has done.

[…]

He is King Obama the Irrelevant.

[…]

In his own imagination, he wishes he had monarchical powers.

This is one of the all-time classics of hilarious right wing butthurt, and it’s self-refuting — you can take it to the bank that Pollak will be right back in manic attack mode before the day is over. And by the way, the name “Obama” appears at least 15 times on the front page of breitbart.com today, proving beyond a doubt how irrelevant he is to the Breitbart business model.

P.S. The comments from the Breitbart audience for Pollak’s stupid article are just as vicious and deranged as always.

Ari Fleischer: I’ll Be Donating Less to Charity in 2013

How the right thinks

Former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer perfectly sums up the blighted world view of the Republican Party with this mean-spirited tweet:

Senate Republicans Cave on Fiscal Cliff

Progress
Politics • Views: 27,801

For decades the Republican Party has been fighting tooth and nail to stop this day from ever coming: Senate Passes Tax Increases on Wealthy Americans.

WASHINGTON — The Senate, in a predawn vote two hours after the deadline passed to avert automatic tax increases, overwhelmingly approved legislation on Tuesday that would allow tax rates to rise only on affluent Americans while temporarily suspending sweeping, across-the-board spending cuts.

The deal, worked out in furious negotiations between Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and the Republican Senate leader, Mitch McConnell, passed 89 to 8, with just three Democrats and five Republicans voting no. Although it lost the support of some of the Senate’s most conservative members, the broad coalition that pushed the accord across the finish line could portend swift House passage as early as New Year’s Day.

Many Democrats are unhappy about some of the provisions in the legislation (that’s why it’s called a “compromise”) but make no mistake — breaking the back of the anti-tax right wing is an historic achievement for the Obama administration.

Drop out of school before your mind rots from exposure to our mundane educational system. Forget about the Senior Prom and go to the library and *educate yourself* if you've got any guts. Some of you like *pep rallies* and plastic robots who tell you what to read. Forget I mentioned it. *This song has no message.* Rise for the flag salute. -- Liner notes for "Hungry Freaks, Daddy" on "Freak Out!"
