  1. Haxan Cloak - The Men Parted The Sea To Devour The Water (excerpt)

    From the forthcoming Latitudes session. Following his critically acclaimed debut album on Aurora Borealis, the new Tri-Angle signee, The Haxan Cloak (AKA Bobby Krlic), has quite gracefully buried himself deep into the networks of unsettling electronic music. This Latitudes release is, in essence, Bobby live, but think of it as ‘The Haxan Cloak 2.0’.

  3. Episode 58: The Neoliberal Optimism Industry

    We’re told the world is getting better all the time. In January, The New York Times’ Nick Kristof explained "Why 2017 Was the Best Year in Human History." The same month, Harvard professor and Bill Gates’ favorite optimist Steven Pinker lamented (in a special edition of Time magazine guest edited by - who else? - Bill Gates) the “bad habits of media… bring out the worst in human cognition”. By focusing so much on negative things, the theory goes, we are tricked into thinking things are getting worse when, in reality, it’s actually the opposite.

    For the TEDtalk set, that the world is awesome and still improving is self-evidently true - just look at the data. But how true is this popular axiom? How accurate is the portrayal that the world is improving we so often seen in sexy, hockey stick graphs of upward growth and rapidly declining poverty? And how, exactly, are the powers that be "measuring" improvements in society?

    On this episode, we take a look at the ideological project of telling us everything’s going swimmingly, how those in power cook the books and spin data to make their case for maintaining the status quo, and how The Neoliberal Optimism Industry is, at its core, an anti-intellectual enterprise designed to lull us into complacency and political i…

  4. Unplugged from the Matrix

    Rework is a podcast by the makers of Basecamp about a better way to work and run your business. While the prevailing narrative around successful entrepreneurship tells you to scale fast and raise money, we think there’s a better way. We’ll take you behind the scenes at Basecamp with co-founders Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson and bring you stories from business owners who have embraced bootstrapping, staying small, and growing slow.

  5. The Odd Podcast with Joe Parisi: 13 | Buz Blurr- Colossus of Roads

     

    Legendary boxcar moniker artist Buz Blurr aka Colossus of Roads joins the show to tell us all about his life and the various art projects he’s been involved with.  We discuss the hobo culture, graffiti and mail art.  Then we talk about the mysterious "House of Hades" tiles that are scattered around intersections all over the United States.  (It has been speculated that Buz is the artist responsible for these and we get to the bottom of it!)   So what is a boxcar moniker?  It’s like old time graffiti drawn on the side of a train car.  They are usually about the size of a basketball or slightly larger and done in one color (usually black or white).  These are not the big sprawling spray paint pieces you see on train cars, but they often share space with them.  The moniker artists were/are sometimes hobos riding the rails, sometimes guys who worked in the rail yards and sometimes just graffiti artists who thought trains made a cool canvas.  A person draws their signature drawing or "moniker" on as many cars as possible, then that car travels all over the country over the years allowing their work to be seen by thousands of people in all sorts of places the artist would probably never be able to physically go.  It’s kind of an "underground" art network that has been in existence for over 100 years. And yes, it’s illegal. In this particular world of boxcar art, Buz is the top guy around today.  It’s estimated that he’s drawn his "Colossus of Roads" moniker on 70,000 + train cars.  Chances are, at some point you were sitting in your car waiting for a long train to pass and one of his drawings zipped right past you and you didn’t even know it.
