Rock & roll has been really bringing me down lately. It’s in great danger of becoming an immobile, sterile fascist that constantly spews its propaganda on every arm of the media. It rules and dictates a level of thought and clarity of intelligence that you’ll never raise above. You don’t have a fucking chance to hear Beethoven on any radio station anymore. You’ve got to listen to the O’Jays. I mean, disco music is great. I used disco to get my first Number One single [“Fame”] but it’s an escapist’s way out. It’s musical soma. Rock & roll too — it will occupy and destroy you that way. It lets in lower elements and shadows that I don’t think are necessary. Rock has always been the devil’s music. You can’t convince me that it isn’t.” … [Read more...] about David Bowie: Ground Control to Davy Jones

Malkmus, who plays drums himself on his new album, has a philosophy about the instrument. “The drums should stay out of the way, kind of,” he says. “And I feel bad saying that, having drummers.

Or they can start their own bands or whatever.” … [Read more...] about Five Things We Learned From Stephen Malkmus in Our Podcast Interview
It’s just a little thing but I really like it, how it plays in juxtaposition to what’s happening with Donna at the same time. We certainly don’t forget about Mike and Rachel.

In the same interview, Mahesh also revealed that he would love to go on a road trip with Ram Charan and Jr NTR. Since the three share a very friendly rapport, we aren't really surprised by his answer. But what he said next, was quite funny.

But even though MeWe is small, it is rapidly growing: Weinstein says the app currently has five million members, and it is projected to grow twice as much by the end of 2019; far more users than a white supremacist-friendly platform like Gab, which last year said it had 800,000 registered users. The app also plans to introduce new features like in-app gaming at the end of the year, which will likely attract even more users; as will the fact that Facebook has also taken the formal position of banning alt-right darlings like Milo Yiannopolous, Paul Joseph Watson, Alex Jones and Laura Loomer, adding fuel to the fire of far-right extremists’ beliefs that their views are being sacrificed on the pyre of the left-wing agenda. “We are here [on MeWe] for better treatment, until Facebook and Twitter disappear,” one MeWe user who frequently comments on QAnon forums told me. “It’s only a matter of time until that happens.” … [Read more...] about Inside MeWe, Where Anti-Vaxxers and Conspiracy Theorists Thrive
