A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

One of the downsides to living on the East Coast is that one has to drive 3-4 days to get to anywhere substantially different. (Even Florida / NO aren't that different from NYC, weather-wise. Different average temperatures, but same mugginess much of the time)

I think TX is like NJ and FL in some ways - it has a reputation that isn't 100% accurate. There is some truth to the stereotypes, but there's also a lot of diversity. Not everyone in FL is Florida Man and not all Texans are cowboys. And not everyone from NJ is a ____.

@Trouble Been meaning to make this music recommendation: Lisa Bella Donna. I've listened to her for a while but really dug deep in the last year. Moog/modular synths. And there's something really appealing about the fact that she does this stuff while based in the Appalachian mountains.

"Bush of Ghosts" and "Hole in the Ground" both came out in 1981 and tbh I think I like the African Head Charge record more - at least, I still play that one while I haven't listened to David and Brian's record in ages. The Goog tells me that "Gush of Boasts" is somehow related to Radiohead/Johnny Greenwood, I dunno about that, it just stuck in my head b/c it's funny

speaking of Black Panthers - everyone should watch "Judas and the Black Messiah", the Fred Hampton movie. I couldn't watch the brutal ending (which I knew was coming) but I cannot recommend this movie highly enough.

all of the acting was amazing, and Fred Hampton's widow and son were on-set during the filming to advise on accuracy. If this film doesn't win multiple awards, something is really screwed up with the system

TDK60:

Actually I've heard both the Hampton movie and the one on the Chicago 7 films criticized for fogging up the events; typical for Hollywood when it comes to the '60s left.
Avatar This Is The Modern World with Trouble Marathon 2024 10:56am
YETI BOB:

TDK: Really? I've read several articles about how accurate "Judas" was. They took a few small liberties (the timing of Bill O'Neills suicide) but overall I think it's pretty accurate.
Avatar This Is The Modern World with Trouble Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 10:57am
Handy Haversack:

I watched it, yeah. The acting was solid. But ... well, what TDK60 said. Politics and history subsumed by story. A compelling movie, but I don't know if it's even possible to tell revolutionary stories in the framework of capitalist film production.

I think the movie is about Bill O'Neill more than Fred Hampton - "Judas" is the first word of the title - and I thought his compromised character was really well-developed. I am a committed socialist, but didn't go into this expecting left-wing agit-prop. I thought it was great, for what it is.

@trouble - haven't read any of the books, but I used to work at TVT records and we re-released most of GSH's catalogue. He used to sit in my office, under a poster of his original recording for TVT, waiting for the GM across the hall. We'd chat for hours or at least until he nodded off. Those were his later years and he was kinda out of it a lot of the time but still had plenty of nuggets of insight. And he still had that voice. Nothing like it.
