"Anita's public persona is too much of the moralist, Milo's is too much of the aesthete. But note that an aesthete without morality is actually a bad aesthete. Milo thinks he's Oscar Wilde but he's not - he's Dorian Gray".

Funny you should say that, I was just binge-watching Milo last night, I find him absolutely hilarious. a-hard-days-night-john-6 (Also, I once listened to a fairly recent, very long and very humanising interview of Milo with Dr Jordan Peterson in which the latter basically psychoanalysed the former and actually made him seem slightly human instead of just his public face, which is indeed that of an asshole beyond measure -- and which I nonetheless find highly amusing, even when he's being flat-out wrong, which isn't infrequent. a-hard-days-night-paul-4)

He's funny and great at being a provocateur, I'll give him that, but as Contra says he's far too much style and not much substance and he's kind of delusional to think that he could reshape the Republican party in his image, when the reality is they would most likely hate his guts if he wasn't supporting them. It's also amusing how quickly he's fallen into irrelevance that he actually got milkshaked and nobody even noticed while the 'attacks' on Farage and others were big news worldwide. Still, I think he definitely has the entertainment value aspect down, as you say. On Jordan Peterson... blergh, I think I've made my thoughts known elsewhere on here.

Anyways, before we get too off topic, I'm listening to this: 

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Dead Kennedys, cool! I used to own the full DKs discography in uni, while their obscenity trial was ongoing. (I don't think I needed it all; they were pretty stale by the end.)

Now playing: EW&F live

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Lol, I love that section of her video. The bath scene is absolutely hilarious a-hard-days-night-john-6I guess I just dislike his worldview of using 'postmodernist neo-Marxism' as a bogeyman for most issues, despite the fact he had never even read any Marx in his life before the his Zizek debate. Contra does a good job explaining why this isa bizarre and outdated analysis of the world, but I'd recommend Three Arrows' videos 'Jordan Peterson doesn't understand Nazism' and 'How Cultural Marxism Became The Far Right's Scapegoat' if you would like to see his work picked apart in a less abstract manner. 

However, I did read a little bit of 12 Rules For Life in a bookshop yesterday and found it much less objectionable than his speeches, in part because he made much more of an effort to be concise, and to be quite honest I find him far more interesting than most other figures popular in that sphere of youtube. Maybe I'll buy it at some point soon. 

RE Dead Kennedys: Yeah, I think their final album from what I've heard is less impressive, but their best stuff is amazing. I've been on a huge kick of them recently, since Jello's lyrics in songs like 'Stars and Stripes of Corruption', 'Soup is Good Food' and... uhhhh.... 'Kinky Sex Makes The World Go Round' honestly blew my mind the first time hearing them. 

Now listening to Audrey Hepburn's Moon River.

I just bought “lizard” and I swear that this is a picture of the beatles on the square where the “I” in “Crimson” is. Am I right or is this a random drawing? from KingCrimson

I always liked Lizard - it's Crimson's jazziest album, and one of my personal gateways into investigating the world of modern jazz properly.

That's "Silas", "Jude", "Jonah" and "Rufus" with the circus clothes and big nose!

"Happy Family" 

Happy family, one hand clap, four went by and none come back.
Brother Judas, ash and sack, swallowed aphrodisiac.
Rufus, Silas, Jonah too sang, "We'll blow our own canoes, "
Poked a finger in the zoo, punctured all the ballyhoo
 
Whipped the world and beat the clock, wound up with their share of stock.
Silver Rolls from golden rock, shaken by a knock, knock, knock.
Happy family, wave that grin, what goes round must surely spin;
Cheesecake, mousetrap, Grip-Pipe-Thynne cried out, "We're not Rin Tin Tin."
 
Uncle Rufus grew his nose, threw away his circus clothes
Cousin Silas grew a beard, drew another flask of weird
Nasty Jonah grew a wife, Judas drew his pruning knife.
Happy family one hand clap, four went on but none came back
 
Happy family, pale applause, each to his revolving doors.
Silas searching, Rufus neat, Jonah caustic, Jude so sweet.
Let their sergeant mirror spin if we lose the barbers win;
Happy family one hand clap, four went on but none came back

So Happy Family is about The Beatles' breakup then?

I did enjoy Lizard. Neither it or Poseidon were as great as the debut album, but I've heard great things about Lark's Tongues, Starless and Red, so I'm optimistic.

Right now I'm listening to Schlagenheim, the debut album by a new British band called Black Midi, whose sound is pretty much indescribable. Bits of funk, bits of prog, bits of free improvisation and noise. I'm not at all sure what to make of the album yet, but this non album song is a pretty good introduction to their sound.
