- The new WTF with Marc Maron Podcastis just spectacular. It is episode 336, in which Maron interviews the infamous filmmaker Todd Solondz. Solondz’s latest film is called Dark Horse. The film is discussed extensively along with Solondz’s career and upbringing, how the former employs the latter. It’s really interesting to hear an extensive interview with the man (even though for a WTF interview it’s a bit short), I don’t know if I’ve heard him speak for more than a few minutes before. Marc Maron is spot on as always, asking just the right questions you’d like to hear the answers to while simultaneously maintaining humor and intelligence and that everyman quality.
- Surely there’s no way Wayne Coyne actually had a grenade at the airport, right? Like, a real fucking grenade??
- I’m seeing The Hold Steady Saturday and have been looking up videos of them from 2012 this morning. Here’s a good one from “Rock The Garden” (especially cause a lot of these landmarks are a stone’s throw away from where they’re performing):
- Art Under Austerity is a very interesting look at current austerity measures in Spain, as viewed from the scope of where the country has been and is going.
These unexpected points of contact between extremes in a famously polarized country suggest a growing post-ideological unanimity, unprecedented and still unfathomable. The wide social and generational range of those who have come out to march against a Europe ruled by Big Finance, and for a new Constituent Assembly in Spain, reflects the creep of an almost revolutionary radicalism. Even a pair of policemen assured me that 90 percent of the force, as “individuals in society,” would willingly have joined the “Surround Congress” demonstration last September. Until now there have been no counter-demonstrations by right-wing ultras, and not a glimmer of Greece’s party Golden Dawn.
