The dB’s - Amplifier.

I’m still excited with the news of a new dB’s record (due 2012) and the new song they put out last week (free download! www.thedbsonline.net/). Gotta love a live version of “Amplifier”….! #thedbs #peterholsapple

"My mother wanted me to be a priest or an actor, but seeing that there wasn’t much chance of the priesthood, she plumped for acting and sent me for elocution lessons. Miss Crowe was an attractive woman. I used to sit on the floor and look up her skirt—and that’s how I became a poet."

"

The concept of hegemony thus belongs with the question: How is the working class to take power in a social formation where the dominant power is subtly, pervasively diffused throughout habitual daily practices, intimately interwoven with ‘culture’ itself, inscribed in the very texture of our experience from nursery school to funeral parlour? How do we combat a power which has become the “common sense” of a whole social order, rather than one which is widely perceived as alien and oppressive?

In modern society, then it is not enough to occupy factories or confront the state. What must also be contested is the whole area of ‘culture’, defined in its broadest, most everyday sense. The power of the ruling class is spiritual as well as material; and any ‘counterhegemony’ must carry its political campaign into this hitherto neglected realm of values and customs, speech habits and ritual practices.

"And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women - except, of course —those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ stuff, But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years - whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know - actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster."

Tina Fey. (via mysharona1987)

"Man is the symbol-using (symbol-making, symbol-misusing) animal, inventor of the negative (or moralized by the negative) separated from his natural condition by instruments of his own making, goaded by the spirit of hierarchy (or moved by the sense of order) and rotten with perfection."

Kenneth Burke. I love this quote. It’s from his "Definition of Man" essay, printed in Language as Symbolic Action. He’s no easy read, but so worth it. (via thepoliticalnotebook)
