"Body Betrays Itself" fully exhibits the overriding concept of Margaret Chardiet’s new album as PharmakonBestial Burden. The Brooklyn-based noise artist explained the theming process recently, talking about her 2013 surgery—how it made her think about the body’s disintegration over time, how there’s no sense of control when stricken by disease. This track outlines that process in miniature. Chardiet lets the music slowly break apart around her, ultimately building toward a moment of dissonance from which it never fully recovers. 

Chardiet’s music is never too concerned with recovery anyway. Listening to her work is like watching skin gradually wither over time, as it succumbs to the travails of aging. There’s very little forward momentum in “Body Betrays Itself”. Instead, it ominously loops in place, creating a picture of its creator trapped in a private ordeal, barely able to move. Chardiet’s wrestling with her own mortality here, and like the best music she’s released to date under this name, it’s simultaneously uncomfortable and captivating to behold.

Ten weeks dry: water is still a privilege, not a right, in Indigenous Australia

Australia is the “lucky country” where everyone is given a “fair go”? Not if you’re Black.

Water is and always should be a basic human right, for everyone. There is a facebook page up about the situation at Utopia and you can also find links on the facebook page to donate money to the community so they can get the broken bore fixed (even though the drongos who broke should be the one fixing it!) They’re gonna need approx $35,000, so donate some funds if ya can spare it.

I’ve been seeing Australian native bees in the garden (these ones are blue-banded bees) which is so encouraging. Bumblebees and European honey bees are considered feral, invasive species in Australia. I’m taking the blue-banded bees as a sign that the garden is thriving.

I was reading about these little dudes - they’re solitary creatures (awww), and don’t have hives or colonies like social bee species. The males cling alone to plant stems during the night, and the females burrow in soil, clay and soft sandstone. They mostly only like blue flowers, and only tend to range within about 300m of their burrow or resting spot.

Two types of Australian native bees that are blue! Not all native bees are blue, though.

Ferguson -2014

I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.

Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.

Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening

The new U2 album slipped itself into my iPhone like some sort of impostor potatoman at a concert sneaking backstage.

it would have been cool if they would have decided to give us an album we liked….

I saw that shit sneaking around in my iTunes and deleted it SO FUCKING FAST.
