High and low art… What nonsense.

Art is art. But there are levels of competence and dedication embedded in every piece of art. And there can be references embedded, as well, only visible to the experienced or patient senses.

How capitalism treats works of art is another matter. It seems that elitism as sales arguments has run amok. And that in itself will rid the masses of understanding of nuances in interaction with art, and may also have a copy-effect on artists – that they will self-censor in order to live up to buyers’ expectations.

TIME TRAVEL RADIO by Jamie Carreiro

Time Travel Radio is a music player that navigates through time. There are only two knobs: one controls power/volume, and the other sets the year.  You fill it with songs from throughout your life, then use music to travel through time.

Hence many people are deprived from knowledge, while at the same time allowing right holders to have a huge benefits from this. The copyright fosters increase of both informational and economical inequality.

open access

The Sci-Hub project supports Open Access movement in science. Research should be published in open access, i.e. be free to read. The Open Access is a new and advanced form of scientific communication, which is going to replace outdated subscription models. We stand against unfair gain that publishers collect by creating limits to knowledge distribution.

6.3/10 – for skuespillet alene! Burde være 3-4 for elendigt manus.

Normal-Danmark kommer gennem krisen ved at forråde fællesskabets individuelle behov (ved at undlade at hjælpe) og rejser sig på asken fra ofringen af den svageste og mest needy.

Facebook er en Dommedagsmaskine
