Pre-Endgame Strategy

In my current situation I find the long-term rather than the short-term impacts of the quarantine most concerning, and perhaps for this reason I've frequently found myself thinking about one particular long-term concern. Stay-at-home orders are nearly superfluous in my case, hence the lockdown has, for me, so far been little else than a welcome sabbatical from rat-racing, and a fruitful period of study (both self- and other-). The near-total lack of structure is nonetheless something which I've ...

Fired Minneapolis Cops Who Killed George Floyd Have a History of Shooting & Beating Minorities

Derek Chauvin, the police officer seen holding his knee to the neck of George Floyd in a disturbing video that surfaced online this week, has a history of complaints throughout his career, new reports indicate. Chauvin was one of four Minneapolis police officers who responded to a suspected forgery in-progress call on Monday (May 25).

Jabee – “No Allegiance” (Video)

Following the recent release of lead single “Chec Mate” featuring Slug (Atmosphere) and Statik Selektah, Jabee has dropped his next single and new visual ‘No Allegiance’. The Nipsey Hussle inspired video takes the minimalist route, filmed in a Pizza Restaurant soon to be owned by Jabee, reflecting on what he feels Nipsey was about. The album title itself is very telling, having been thought up three years ago, it could not be more appropriate today.

50 Songs from a Single Year, Mixed Together Into One 3-Minute Song (1979-89)

The concept of generations, as we currently use the term, would have made no sense to people living throughout most of human history. “Before the 19th century,” writes Sarah Leskow at The Atlantic, “generations were thought of as (generally male) biological relationships within families—grandfathers, sons, grandchildren and so forth.” The word did not describe common traits shared by, “as one lexicographer put it in 1863, ‘all men living more or less at the same time.’” The theory was th...

So schufen Magazine & das Patriarchat das Märchen von der Cellulite

Cellulite ist nicht echt! Schluss. Aus. Ende. Oh, das war nicht klar genug? Dann lass mich noch etwas tiefer in die Materie eingehen: Wir alle haben Unterhautfettgewebe und Fasergewebe. Das ist real. Und tatsächlich gibt es bei den meisten menschlichen Körpern Bereiche, an denen die Haut Dellen oder Unebenheiten aufweist. DAS IST NORMAL. Aber bis vor einiger Zeit gab es kein Wort, um sie zu definieren, denn sie waren kein Problem. Vor einem halben Jahrhundert wusste kein Mensch, was Celluli...

All About Reverb Effect That You Need to Know

Reverberation is the natural result of the interaction of sound waves with each surface that comes across its path. Reverberation is basically the effect due to decaying sound signals reflecting off various surfaces. It is generally heard after the initial sound source. The effects of reverberation can be experienced in the real-world and also during music production. The use of this effect can make a massive difference in a professional audio recording. In a recording studio, various tools an...
