//MZK: Daniel Striped Tiger- No Difference (Full Album) [Post Hardcore/No Wave/Thrash]

Somewhere along the journey to search for Icelandic Metal, yesterday, I fell upon something that's quite the opposite. A 'Post Hardcore' band from Massachusetts. I've been in love ever since. Wasn't even that familiar with what they call Post. Interesting thread it has lead me on. It appears, also, that they have broken up. Such as shame. Here's the full album. Linked below is the bandcamp where you can find the album.

Btw. Is it just me or is there a rising fad of  'no wave' kids? You know who I'm talking about. You might have one in your friends circle. Thinks the bands he/she listens to are too cool to share. You probably wouldn't get it anyway. Psh.

Keep an eye on them though. They're dangerous.

For tracklist

//MZK: Dwain Dawson's 120 Complex and Unique Breakdowns [Metalcore/Death Metal/Grind Core/Hardcore/Djent]

I'm just going to keep this here in the case I ever want to return and revise the track list.

//DOC: Vpro Backlight Double Special- Zero Days & The Human Robot

I think the most important thing to take away from either or both is that we've already been moving into that world from 'Ghost In The Shell'. Now is probably the right time to start declaring laws for cyberspace/headspace and rights for Robots.

Interesting things about the Japanese and their view on souls. Not exactly something within an object itself but rather within the relationship between two objects. Or a human and and object. Never really seen it like that before. Something also worthy of future thought.

//EDU SPCL: Organised Chaos, Disorganised Chaos & The Dissembling of Modern Art Culture

It is assumed, in the post RocknRoll age, that the need for punk culture and rebellious attitude is a given that we take for granted. However, it is noted there exists a double-think regarding the treatment of such culture. Even the most mentally-broadened can be quick to lay harsh judgement and think ill of those that speak or act in a manner that is able to touch upon the most taboo parts of our accepted social and verbal vernacular. No matter whether intended as a satire and parody or not.

Look at how smart I am using big boy words.

The working definitions for satire and parody that I'm referring to is the imitation of a body of work or idea and its ridicule (in a, usually, exaggerated manner) in order to evoke an emotional response, ideally ending up with some kind of reform.

//MZK MIX: Command Strange- Inform Mix #017 [Liquid/Drumnbass]

Oh god, it's been too long since I last listened to Command Strange. I'm not surprised that he's still at the liquid drumnbass thing. It's almost as if a higher power demanded he do it. The tracks he chooses never fall short of sublime and his mixing seems to be, at this point, near surgical.

//FLM RVW: Quentin Dupieux's 'Reality' and Dream Cinema

We have effectively left reality. If art imitates life then Mr. Oizo's latest film, Reality, portrays a world where things don't make sense any more. It's a line of these movies really; Reality, The Editor and Turbo Kid. These movies aren't just synth-backed and totally disconnected from what we've come to know. But they're probably the most interesting things I've watched this year. But what makes all this even stranger is that these movies seem more grounded in waking life than most of the time I spend awake. Dream cinema cements my opinion that life is, indeed, stranger than fiction.

//MIX: Relapse Records Podcast #36 - August 2015

Ohshi. Who knew that Relapse Records had their own podcast? I didn't. Someone should tell me these things. Well, actually, that's what I'm supposed to do. Isn't it? Click here or 'Read More' to see the playlist.

//EDUVID: David Fincher Cinematics

A nice little insight into the artistry behind, probably, the most visionary film director of our time. Mostly stuff for aspiring film-makers. I know there's a shitload of you out there.

//NEWSVID: Kuwait Ministry of Interior Releases Batshit Video of Hidden Terrorist Stockpiles

In, about, the weirdest thing I could stumble upon is this beautifully put-together video by Kuwait's Ministry of Interior documenting all the 'Terrorist Cell Stockpiles' they gathered after a nation-wide crackdown. Three suspects had confessed to being a part of, said, terrorist cells and had given up the whereabouts to arsenals of weaponry big enough to make Sarah Connor blush. After digging up each suspects home they were able to gather about 19,000 kg of ammunition, 114 kg of TNT and other explosives. Hmm.
