long, meta, pretentious explanation of why this "place" is different 

Suspiria, spoilery 

poll result what I will watch 

Current Affairs have the best submission guidelines of any I've read. Even the tone of it gives you a feel for what they commission. And the writing tips are glorious. "Don't write like a grad student." "Writing should convey warmth." I'd copy the whole thing here is I weren't on my phone.

Here's Napalm Death's cover of NPFO. I wasn't cool enough to own this and listening back it takes a frustratingly long (relatively!) time to get going compared to the original:

Interesting article on recent antifascist trends in extreme (specifically, black) metal.
I would nitpick that it's ignored the antifascist / far-left roots of the original mid-80s bands. (My introduction to Napalm Death was through their Nazi Punks Fuck Off T-shirt.) Extra strange omission when it mentions the Oi! wars between skinheads & boneheads.
Anyway, a good read:

Life on Mars is one of those songs that makes my breath die in my throat. This version, from the Hours tour in 1999 is really something, though Mick Ronson's arrangements on the album version are unmatched.

I do love that this one closes with the synth sound from Thursday's Girl -- anchors it in time as much as Bowie's hair.

For #horror fans, Nightscape Press is doing a GoFundMe direct fundraiser to raise money for RAICES w/a horror short story anthology.

The collection looks really interesting on its own merits and the money goes to a good cause, so I'd suggest checking it out!

along one axis of reality, Good Milk Hotel and Evil Milk Hotel

and along another axis, Lawful Milk Hotel and Chaotic Milk Hotel

Today is the 200th anniversary of the #Peterloo massacre. On 16th August 1819, 60,000 people gathered peacefully in St. Peter's Field, Manchester to advocate for parliamentary reform when cavalry charged into the crowd, killing 18 people and injuring 400-700. It is one of the defining events in British radical history.

You hate web tracking by websites like fb/Google etc, right? If so, don't post links with fbclid in them!!! Clean it up You can delete anything after '?'.

Earlier in the week I was thinking about how great pop songs speak across time by singing about the constants of life like heartbreak, the rush of first love and macroeconomic Kondratiev cycles of boom-bust.

Gah, the @screentestoftime episode on La Grande Illusion has got me fired up to (finally) watch it, but I'm thinking I'll have to wait a while and try and forget some of the plot.

Currently doing up an art project on American ruins that'll include a playlist. Songs will aid in the construction of a haunted, precarious dreamscape. Any tunes you can suggest will be appreciated!
