Did you vote for Trump? He scares the hell out of me, and he's got a Nazi working with him. So we had a conversation, which is what we're supposed to do. Let the other side be exclusive, keep people out, and pretend everyone should be divided up into groups; at the end of the day, no matter how hard we fight, even if it means physical dissent, when the war is over, people are still people. It's how you avoid the Hutus and the Tutsis warring back and forth, chopping each other up with machetes.
If someone comes to you and says, 'Look, I shouldn't have voted for assholes the last 12 years. How do we put our country back together and make sure everybody's protected? It's hard, but you've gotta look some assholes in the eye and accept that maybe they've changed. I can't forgive a fucking Nazi, I think—until I meet some guy who was a skinhead for 25 years, and spends the rest of his life working in the AIDS ward trying to atone for it. There's always some reason for you to doubt your certainty.
Many of the tracks were recorded live-in-the studio in front of a small audience. My big goal in life is to make it so much better to love people that, after a while, hating people seems like a lot of work. You only need one commandment, right? If you love everybody, then all the other commandments are unnecessary. I'm not a religious man at all. A study last year also showed that hominins were making stone tools in northwest Kenya by 3.
Pronounced elongation of the legs, larger brains and other traits followed, until the emergence of our own species - Homo sapiens - about , years ago.
Hominins split from chimpanzees around seven million years ago and the new research shows that it was after this that early humans began to walk more upright, and evolved shoulders that were suited to tool use. Peter de Menocal, a climate scientist at Lamont-Doherty who co-authored the new study, said: 'Lots of people have conjectured that grasslands had a central role in human evolution.
This really helps answer the question. According to Dr Richard Potts, an anthropologist at the Smithsonian Institution, said subtle swings in the climate from wet to dry over shorter periods of time could be the key to the spread of grasses and humans as they were both adaptable enough to survive. He said: 'Bipedality emerged as a way of combining walking on the ground and climbing trees, toolmaking expanded the adjustments to a much wider range of foods.
Brains are the quintessential organ of flexibility. From the experiment, experts believe our early ancestors, including Lucy, may have been able to use their torsos to increase walking efficiency in the same way as modern humans. The torso of chimpanzees had long been thought to be a rigid block, best suited for a life of tree climbing.
Humans, on the other hand, have long and flexible torsos that aid in walking by allowing rotation in the upper body in the opposite direction of the lower body. The findings, which appear in the paper in Nature, change the evolutionary view of how early human ancestors walked and what they were able to do. The research team used high-speed cameras to track and compare how the torsos of humans and chimpanzees actually moved during bipedal walking. They studied the movements by way of three-dimensional kinematic analyses and computer-generated comparisons.
They discovered that the main difference between human and chimpanzee bipedalism is that chimps swing their hips much more. Humans have long and flexible torsos that aid in walking by allowing rotation in the upper body in the opposite direction of the lower body.
There is a continuing debate about how the hips of our ancestors worked compared to ours. Given this uncertainty, the research team modelled the transition from a more chimp-like pattern of the upper body movement to that of a more human-like pattern. They found that even if Lucy rotated her pelvis 50 per cent more than modern humans, her upper body would have functioned essentially like ours. This means that even as early as 3.

Start a Wiki. Monster Manual 4th edition. Wizards of the Coast , p. Monster Manual III. Wizards of the Coast , pp. The bulk of the recorded material features vocals by an Anglophone named China, whose words are buoyed by a variety of somewhat subversive new wave tropes.
And, truly, the more I listen to this, the more acclimated addicted? Unfortunately, Metal Boys remained an even more obscure project than the original had. Wall of Noise shows this stuff which eventually expanded into an actual band to be much more aggressive and strange than Metal Boys. But these songs are highly devolved, dub-informed scuzzed-out versions of the originals. At any rate, this trilogy is pretty goddamn ripe.
So give it a sniff. As always, Childish has created something of great beauty and power. Get behind him. Since relocating from the hot tar of New York to the wind-blown mountains of southern Vermont, Matt Valentine and Erika Elder have retooled their muses in a variety of ways.
Some of that transubstantiation can be heard on the incredible new 2LP set by their former? And the sessions reprised here are great.
Tower Recordings were an awesome group, capable of sweat-free motion from experimental improv to careful folk plucking to absolute psychedelic form-disasterism. Packed in a typically nice Time-Lag cover, this is a sweet poke from an unknown ridge. This is a solo newsprint mag that contains incredibly detailed interviews with Dredd Foole, Chris Corsano, and all the countless members of Sunburned Hand of the Man.
It is true that Doyle no longer manifests the saxophonic lung rushery that was so abundantly evident on Alabama Feeling, but he is still a performer rich with ghosts and power and raw poetry. Recorded in Milan in , the music has some similarities to the work that Doyle did with his Electro-Accoustic Ensemble, but it is more focused, less lumpy, and far more rooted in the jazz tradition than that crazy shit ever was.
The way Ed organizes his mag is particularly well-suited to bathroom readings. He groups the pieces and reviews into clumps of the like-minded, and the results are very pleasing. A non-catholic mix for non-catholic readers. Cool as hell. Milk Man Free Porcupine Society. The music this time is more lilting than you might expect. Unlike most snarling filth mongers reveling in the bowel splatter of noise action, Dominick is a rather clean-cut and polite gentleman with a gracious demeanor.
But once behind his arsenal of audio pain machines he will nail your soul to the grave. His homebrew label Hospital Productions has been around for a few years and has released a number of harsh statements by a broiling slough of noise talents: Skin Crime, Richard Ramirez, Macronympha, Nuclear Pig Shit as well as one of the earlier tapes by Hair Police who did a number of dates on the aforementioned tour.
Kites, also from Providence, is the moniker by which young Chris Forbes extends his noise compositions to us lucky fucks. Kites music has a rather sweet episodic nature and tells a story that truly will suck you into a better world whether you like it or not. The bands roots are thickly intertwined with both Angelblood and Ssab Songs, which should give you some pretty good ideas about the nature of formal composition here.
There are female vocals, percussives, and electric instruments, all sounding sorta treated and shot-to-hell, wobbling and wiggling like mice riding roman candles at Coney Island. Jandekian aces get pulled from every available sleeve, and the sound is as diffuse as the emotions. As in life, everything here can sound totally lost even the instrumental bits. The production sound is pretty mammal-friendly too—a warm sound, like paper tearing in the next room, pervades everything.
And it suits the words and the plucked guitar to a goddamn T. The bones of the Finnish underground tribal-folk scene are thick with the fat of elk.
If you have material vinyl, books, mags, vids, etc. Girls rule, no problem. At that point Karen, known then as Karen Lollypop, was involved with a couple of projects. One being something called The Polly Shang Kuan Band named after the great 60s martial arts mistress of Hong King cinema , which was basically Karen and whatever female friendos she saw fit to punk out with.
The other was her solo under the moniker of Smack Music 7. The gang were in some kind of holiday spirit vibe, even though it was a cold and wet U. We were trying to figure out how someone could fall in love with the genius Nyoukis without being a world-class artist on their own.
They were incredible. This was not generic squawk and squeal, which we were ready to accept, but something a bit more stately. Karen sent a color collage for sleeve art, which pointed to the fact that she worked as well as a pretty wild visual artist. Needless to say we were proud as a felched pumpkin to throw this baby out there. Just recently Karen has laid down her most enthralling session to date and has so far split it between two cassette releases Typewriter Hell Since and Spittin Hell Open Mouth.
These are essential in the miasma that exists now in cassette experimental offerings. Which automatically makes Since best fucking label so far. They have only a few gigs under their belts but have already been a fairly in-demand trio on the subterranean noise skank circuit.
Aside from the music wonderment of Ms. Constance is her killer art. Her paintings and collages feature emotional wildlife and spooked demons in high-color relief. A few images are available to see on a UK art-site but what we really need is someone to print a decent first catalog of sorts.
As it were, the New York art world loved it and ate it completely up. While David Salle, from CalArts, and Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman, from Hallwalls in Buffalo, but following the star of the CalArts gang , became world renowned and wealthy, Jack Goldstein became perturbed and offended by the nature of competition and political posturing.
Goldstein was an outstanding artist but his work never broke through to mainstream success in the manner his contemporaries did.
He battled a weird psychosis of drugs and bitterness, disappearing for lengthy periods throughout his life and in , he killed himself.
Before his suicide he spent considerable time putting together a manuscript of his thoughts both biographical and straight-up emotional and it has been collected by his friend Richard Hertz in a gripping book called Jack Goldstein and the CalArts Mafia Minneola Press. What becomes of this is probably the first book written by young artists of this particular generation, the same one that came to a sense of identity alongside the first American nomads of punk rock, wherein the process of art and friendship is divulged in wrenching retrospect.
It was an enclosed scene hardly venturing above 14th Street and it was fueled by new values in money, sex, art and music. Each chapter is a reflection on these days and is a captivating glimpse at the mindset which existed. Jack also made a few films early on, such as a mesmerizing loop of the MGM lion roaring ad infinitum.
Which means, I guess, that they rock in a sorta hard, smart and guitar-y way but retain a soft French center and have very dark teeth as well. This new one, No Handle, makes much more personal sense to me than their last one did, maybe because their sound is so diffuse, so utterly slack, that it really needs to sprawl across yr sofa in order to make an impression. That said, No Handle sprawls pretty well. Guys, gals, all friends now—even for two side-long tracks!
Hot and bothersome! Isabella is the same cat as Government Alpha. Government Alpha is in reality a lad named Yasutoshi Yoshida. He has a label called Xerxes, which has released a fountain of harshness through the years.
Isabella he becomes more involved with collaboration it seems.Shifters, also sometimes called the weretouched, were a race of humanoids descended from interbreeding between lycanthropes and humans. Fierce and wild-spirited, shifters were feared by many as much as their shapeshifting brethren. Shifters resembled humans, their close brethren, but with distinctively bestial features such as sharp teeth, claws, pointed ears, or fur. Compared to humans Missing: Nathan Thompson.
