Future Drifts Off Into A Pleasant Oblivion

There's a moment on Hoodie SZN, the new album from the young Bronx sing-rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, where A Boogie delivers a few words of praise for Future, his favorite rapper, saying all the things he wishes he'd said when he was in the studio with the man himself. "Used to … More »

Book review: The Silk Road Trap, by Jonathan Holslag

While reading global newspapers last year, I was struck by how China is reported in Australia. Perhaps it was just that week, but there seemed to be more coverage and a lot more suspicion. China’s diplomacy and infrastructure investments were watched more closely and viewed as a potential threat that is more or less invisible […]

The milk in your tea, and its alternatives

A couple of years ago I read a book called The Solar Revolution. There’s a passage on dairy that provides a neat summary of the problem. “Consider the energy involved in making a cup of tea, white with one sugar” the authors write. “Boiling the kettle contributes 40% of the energy and 20% comes from […]

Future, Ciara, and Russell Wilson Drama Continues

In the age of #MeToo and #TimesUp, my eyes have opened to sexism in the media, and one such realization lies in the fact that men are often way more dramatic and messy than women. Such is the case with Future, who took aim at Seattle Seahawks player and husband of Ciara (his baby mamma), … Continue reading "Future, Ciara, and Russell Wilson Drama Continues" The post Future, Ciara, and Russell Wilson Drama Continues appeared first on The Dishmaster.

Transport innovation of the week: the Boring Company Loop

The Boring Company is an idea that Elon Musk hatched while sitting in traffic in California. Wouldn’t it be easier if there were tunnels under the city that could take us anywhere we wanted to go, in the comfort of our own cars? There are of course tunnels under the city that take people anywhere […]

What we learned this week

“Give me five minutes of your time, and I will convince you why lichens are – and have long been – vital to our understanding of the world around us.” An invitation you should not refuse from Ed Yong. I rather liked the sound of these construction boards made out of potato peelings, especially since […]

Why 'upgrading' humanity is a transhumanist myth

Though computer engineers claim to know what human consciousness is, many neuroscientists say that we're nowhere close to understanding what it is, or its source. Scientists are currently trying to upload human minds to silicon chips, or re-create consciousness with algorithms, but this may be hubristic because we still know so little about what it means to be human. Is transhumanism a journey forward or an escape from reality? Team Human...

James Turrell’s Roden Crater, an Artwork 45 Years in the Making, Set to Open…Sooner

James Turrell’s Roden Crater. L ast month, Kanye West visited James Turrell’s monumental art project, Roden Crater. Turrell bought the extinct volcano, located in Northern Arizona, in 01977. Since then, work at the site has been aimed at creating a naked-eye observatory using principles of light and perception similar to Turrell’s more accessible installations, but cosmic in scale. An ever more prevalent element of the mythos of the project is the question of when it will be done. Few...

The Economics of Enough, by Diane Coyle

The Economics of Enough came out in 2011 and I’ve been meaning to read it for a while. Based on the title and its rather good front cover art, it looks like it might tread some of the same ground as my own book. In the interests of checking out the competition, if nothing else, […]

5 reasons why Britain won’t ever have a fracking boom

The British government are committed to fracking for gas in England. At the last count only 15% of people were in favour of fracking, but the decision has been made, whether there is support for it or not. I’m enough of a realist to recognise that Britain will be using gas for many years yet. […]

Dar Es Salaam’s Bus Rapid Transit system

I’ve sung the praises of Bus Rapid Transit systems here before, and in a forthcoming paper from the Green Economy Coalition.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

We all have our blind spots, and up until this week, one of mine was Sleaford Mods. But thanks to the "Kebab Spider" video, I now know that Sleaford Mods are fucking hilarious. I'd probably like them more if it was the real Jason Statham yelling over real 2003 DFA beats, instead of … More »
