Emotional trauma 

This episode of Star Trek DS9 is just amazing. One of the best performances I think I've seen in start trek full stop. Also brought back painful memories of anxiety attacks I've experienced.

Our frontman hosted his first episode of Rantbox TV on role of stories in modern culture. We had some pretty cool discussions about storytelling, capitalism, justice narratives, the portrayal of evil. All in all pretty enjoyable:

I think video from vsauce is pretty important - it highights the flaws in human reason. It also starts to touch on important ideas about our evolutional need to exist in communities:

How do we answer ? I've taken part in conversations suggesting that running smart contracts on localised blockchains could be a little more responsible; i.e. not treating such chains as trading platforms but as decentralised trust sources. This sorts out the digital rights side, at the cost of treating an NFT as an investment; making them kinda pointless. The deeper question is around how we value and bring value to music. And if that isn't monetarily, how else? Artists still gotta eat.

I should also mention that Rantbox is now being kept up to date on a properly syndicated podcast feed - listen to it wherever you get your podcasts!

A lot of people saying that this will be the death of London, and as a lifetime resident I kinda hope so. Corporate hellscape that it is. So many great venues and places that I used to love to visit have been closed down and turned into sanitised boring bullshit.
