Assorted Links // 20.11.10

Just a bunch of stuff i’ve linked to on Facebook/Twitter etc. over the past few days.

This is an amazing TED talk / animation linking our innate sense of beauty with evolutionary theory.

My mate James linked me to this; a chillingly accurate description of Ireland’s bank armageddon…..from RTE in 1998

Noam Chomsky chimes in on a bunch of stuff in this lengthy recent interview. Irish folk may want to pay particular attention to the IMF stuff….

But its not all doom and gloom. Here’s some new music:

New Jay Electronica feat. Jay-Z “Shiny Suit Theory”

Speaking of Jay-Z, here’s an interview with Jigga from the Guardian. Best not to read the comments. Like most articles in the Guardian the comments seem to mainly consist of “WHY IS THIS IN THE GUARDIAN?” They are a bitter bunch.

Finally, some new Mogwai. Great song, great artwork, and I love the title of the album “Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will”. I also read there will be a track titled “George Square Thatcher Death Party”
