Responding to "Who Ministers to the Ministers?" →
In response to a former classmate’s link on Facebook regarding crime and the clergy:
On the advice of a wholly disreputable astrologer, I’ve been on the lookout of instances of synchronicity — recently I’ve been reading Marcus Aurelius’ “Meditations” as well as “George, Nicholas and Wilhelm” by Miranda Carter. Both are reflections of the lives of Emperors: one ancient and wise, the others…not-so-much. The axis of synchronicity revolves around the founding of the ancient Roman Church on the beliefs of the Stoic philosophers, which eventually led to the excesses of the European monarchs of the late 19th century.

So why is there so much crime? It’s about the widening gap between the haves and the have-nots. The wider this gap becomes, the more that ministers and police officers will find themselves overwhelmed by the volume of violence that threatens to consume our society.
We need to address systematic poverty in order to have any effect on the crime rate.

Feel this. Bullion (from across the pond; the UK, to be exact) thought that it would be an excellent idea to mash up J Dilla (may he rest in peace) vs. the god-damned Beach Boys! A lot of comparisons are being drawn to Dangermouse and his Grey Album, which was okay, but. Don’t let me start hating on The Beatles or Jay-Z in a public forum, “Mr. Empire” will probably put a hit out on me.
But for real, this ish is so-so fresh! The artist, once again: Bullion. The track is “Caroline, No”.

Too bad this is only a six-week semester. At least it’ll be interesting? 2 years ago.
Grizzly Bear. Grizzly Bear, Grizzly Bear, Grizzly Bear. Why couldn’t they have opened for Radiohead in West Palm Beach instead of…of that band I was being too cool to watch? Their upcoming release, Veckatimest, is burning up the Internets; I imagine that it’s got to be simultaneously exciting and irritating for the band. Here’s the rub: for once, the hype is well-founded. I’ve tried to put in other CDs, I made a copy for my Starbucks barista at school, and I send people a link to the preview track put out by Warp Records all day long. If you dig it, please consider pre-ordering the album: they’ve put a lot of work into this album and I promise, it’ll be worth it come May.
