Episode 115 - Adam Curtis and Chill

Lucia, OK and Sarah sit down for an Adam Curtis struggle sesh to study/relax to, tips on keeping sane for when your parents suddenly discover Cuomo is a scumbag, a quick update on the youth (they’re still shifting), and the NGO to sociopath pipeline.

Please write in if you also think Adam Curtis should have used more or let’s face it any Kylie Minogue clips, Fever was a fucking banger with iconic vids, no one even cares that they aren’t in the BBC archive, remember that terrible piece at PS1 ten years ago that was just like Illuminati visuals against the I Believe In You video? It’s low-hanging fruit that should have been picked. This all mostly to say that she’s got a new video where she’s a disco wizard, PLEASE tell us if you will let us airbrush her on the side of your van!!

Go to the 3rd Anti-Columbus Day Tour: https://www.facebook.com/events/235077237185003/ We build on our “Artwashing and Soho” episode using our direct experiences and observations of gentrification in our neighborhoods. We do a “Goofus and Gallant” for anti-gentrication art. Shoutout to the locals, but also these thoughts can be applied all over the place. It’s a layered topic, but I think we illustrate our points well even though I have a bad cold.
