Fascinating read, especially given the historical context it was written in. Naomi Klein is such a gifted writer and though I disagree with a lot of her views, she raises a lot of areas to debate which I at least see as positive towards figuring out if there is something better out there. Biggest gripe though is her very shallow representation of branding and its historical development, which largely paints it as plight on society to which she attacks it as a tool as much as the users of it (mainly corporations). Though well worth the read nonetheless.

New music video coming soon. Last single off my album ‘Kudos’ I put out last year. Hoping to finish editing in the next couple of weeks. :D

Really enjoyed this one. Skates a bit over the difficulties that globalization imposes on culture preservation in favour of highlighting the seemingly remix ethos of eastern appropriation of western culture. Interesting how he shows in his specific examples how the agency behind cultural transfer is not so focal on western interests imposing upon naive easterners, rather easterners making western culture their own.
