Jeg Liker This American Life

februar 27, 2012

Riktig bra radio! Hvert show har et nytt tema – The European Debt Crisis, Fan Conventions, etc. Formen er et underlig sted mellom nyheter, skjønnlitteratur og dokumentar. Fungerer som kuk i kram snø! (Les: Temmelig jævla bra!)

This American Life

Stor Big Up til Janic F.H. for dette tipset!

Jeg Liker A Is For Armageddon

januar 2, 2011

‘A Is for Armageddon is your ruthlessly clever and gorgeously hopeless guide to the possible—if not imminent—ultimate destruction of our civilization and planet. From animal flatulence to economic collapse to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse—from lethal genetic modification to runaway obesity, super volcanoes, and World War III—the seeds of our doom have been sown . . . and our most dire possible fates have been stunningly illustrated in this edifying and uniquely entertaining volume of inescapable horrors, fatal missteps, and the end of everything.’

A Is for Armageddon: A Catalogue of Disasters That May Culminate in the End of the World as We Know It (eller fra BookDepository)

Tenkte dette var en fin bok å sparke i gang et nytt år med…

Merry New Year!

Mole & Thomas – Living Pictures

september 1, 2009

Statue of Liberty

Englishman Arthur S Mole and his American colleague John D Thomas took these incredible pictures of thousands of soldiers forming icons of American history. Arthur’s great nephew Joseph Mole, 70, says: «In the picture of the Statue of Liberty there are 18,000 men: 12,000 of them in the torch alone, but just 17 at the base. The men at the top of the picture are actually half a mile away from the men at the bottom»

The Living Uncle Sam

They took the photographs in camps across the US using soldiers returning to America after World War I. Mole and Thomas: The Living Uncle Sam: 19,000 officers and men at Camp Lee, Virginia, January 13, 1919

Someone Is Stealing Your Life

juni 16, 2009

Someone Is Stealing Your Life

«Most American adults wake around 6 ot 7 in the morning. Get to work at 8 or 9. Knock off around 5. Home again, 6-ish. Fifty weeks a year. For about 45 years.

Most are glad to have the work, but don’t really choose it. They may dream, they may study and even train for work they intensely want; but sooner or later, for most, that doesn’t pan out. Then they take what they can and make do. Most have families to support, so they need their jobs more than their jobs admit to needing them. They’re employees. And, as employees, most have no say whatsoever about much of anything on the job. The purpose or service, the short and long-term goals of the company, are considered quite literally «none of their business» – though these issues drastically influence every aspect of their lives. No matter that they’ve given years to the day-to-day survival of the business; employees (even when they’re called «managers») mostly take orders. Or else. It seems an odd way to structure a free society: Most people have little or no authority over what they do five days a week for 45 years. Doesn’t sound much like «life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.» Sounds like a nation of drones…»
