The Other Side



"Not long ago, if you wanted to seize political power in a country you had merely to control the army and the police. 


Paris - May 1968

Today it is only in the most backward countries that fascist generals, in carrying out a coup d'├ętat, still use tanks. If a country has reached a high degree of industrialization the whole scene changes. The day after the fall of Khrushchev, the editors of Pravda, Izvestiia, the heads of the radio and television were replaced; the army wasn't called out. Today a country belongs to the person who controls communications". 
Umberto Eco



Paris - January 2015:
Leaders, leading...

Recent evidence has come to light, suggesting that TM, may have been  instrumental in David tuning into the oneness, turning on his conciousness and dropping out of the story. 

13.11.14 - David Comes To Life - Just spent 5 months avoiding finishing this one - that's not an intentional tribute to the 5yrs from conception to birth of the album, but more because it includes a self-indulgent 'interpretation' , plus more links with no direct connection to the band, other than finding them (while looking for the meaning of Life and how David might come to it) on Google and then having to watch / study them all. Well most of them anyway. 

For the time-being you'll have to look elsewhere if you want information on the quantum physics and chaos theory of DCTL. I don't know what those words mean, but will try to find out and perhaps make it the biggest blog post about a record ever, maybe grow it into an actual universe.

14.11.14 - YOT Dog is up there now too, it was mostly done before DCTL. I will probably get around to updating some of the other posts - some of the written stuff seems fine (to me) when first put down, but reads like annoying crap later, so I change some of those bits.
