Isto me fez pensar um pouco mais do que deveria ter feito -- pelo menos originalmente. Gosto, enfim, de pensar que minha posse mais importante, a que eu detenho de maneira não absoluta, mas necessária, nunca contingente, seja uma forma bem tímida de esperança, algo que só aparece quando provocado mesmo. Dentre o material, há …

Well, indeed... Everyday Robots isn't exactly a direct record. It's very abstract at times, like in 'Hollow Ponds'. The dates flow through the headphones like you're flicking through the pages of a photo album, or a series of snapshots from your life. The heatwave, '76...the A12 link road, '91... DA: I think the role or …


Natu­ral­mente que nossa idolatria da per­for­mance é, por neces­si­dade, con­tra­di­tó­ria e dis­tor­cida. Na mesma medida em que nos pros­tra­mos diante de santos con­tem­po­râ­neos como Senna, nos delei­ta­mos na des­cons­tru­ção pública de outros de nossos ícones.

My vexation—the thing that makes me spew endless bile on Twitter, the thing that makes me rant and rave about all of this—comes from the total and sneaky manner in which digital music distribution and increasingly-powerful engines of influence like Pitchfork have destroyed music fandom, by turning it into a salable commodity without the fans’ …

Is net neutrality dying? Has the FCC killed it? What comes next? Here’s what you need to know

Um bom resumo do que acontece.


The issue of net neutrality is back in the news again, thanks to some proposed rule changes by the Federal Communications Commission, changes that the regulator says are aimed at protecting a “free and open internet.” A chorus of critics, however, say the commission is trying to eat its cake and have it too — by pretending to create rules that will protect net-neutrality, while actually implementing what amounts to a pay-to-play version of the internet, one that favors large incumbents.

It’s a complicated topic, and one that is prone to a certain amount of hysteria and hyperbole. So what follows is a breakdown of what you need to know, and what some legal experts, technology insiders and advocacy groups are saying about it:

The regulator’s ability to monitor and punish breaches of net neutrality was thrown into limbo by a court ruling…

“Nothing is static. Everything is evolving. Everything is falling apart.” – Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club.

Nothing is static, as fictitious character Tyler Durden says in the novel Fight Club. Certainly not in Seoul, a city whose internal cogs move so fast it wouldn’t know how to slow down, continuously and rapidly evolving. So too for the country’s seasons, which are indeed distinct, yet vastly over-proportioned in the extreme ends of Summer and Winter. Spring doesn’t last long.

The first warm winds of the year allow many things to bloom in Korea. The first empty rice wine bottles of the season sprout all over the country’s convenience store seating. The unveiling of the lower halves of the nation’s young women mirror the covering of all things flesh-related in the old. Floral arrangements are furiously installed in any green space around the cities as the first minute buds on the trees begin…
