Hello, so mr Sanders won a big victory tonight against establishment candidate Hilary Clinton, not even 6 months ago this man was ignored by mainstream media, after all he was a leftwing nut. But then he makes a lot of sense and he's getting a big podium now. Alas even if he would make it to the white house his enemies -the 1% will find it easy to find idiots trying to kill him, and lets not forget the military, plenty of nut cases there as well (think pentagon attack 9/11). Meanwhile a 27$ campaign contribution will bring the world a political revolution..

Today's artist Die Form is a French post-industrial and electronic band formed in 1977-78. The name 'Die Form' means '(the) form/shape' in German, like the Bauhaus diary and is a play on the English homonym 'deformed' and on the French homonym 'difforme' (deformed). .....N'Joy

Die Form is the primary project of the French electronic musician and multimedia artist Philippe Fichot. He began by recording a number of experimental cassette releases, starting with Die Form 1 in 1977, and with the first Die Form vinyl release ('Die Puppe') appearing in 1982. Whilst the project was still in its infancy, the underlying concepts were still evident - a combination of esoteric electronic experiments with an underlying theme of erotism, death and other 'taboo' subjects, apparent in both the music and the album artwork, which Philippe also produces. Other early projects of Philippe Fichot included Krylon Hertz, Mental Code, Camera Obscura, Eva-Johanna Reichstag, Hurt and Fine Automatic.

'Some Experiences With Shock' followed in 1984, with the project taking a direction towards a more commercial sound on 1986's 'Poupée Mécanique'. The project then consolidated its experimental and melodic sides on 'Photogrammes', before introducing vocalist (and model) Eliane P. on the 1990 album 'Corpus Delicti', who remains with the project to this day. The next release, 1992's 'Confessions' saw a club hit in 'Silent Order', with sister album 'Ad Infinitum' (which originated from the same recording sessions) released a year later.

The next 'Die Form' releases saw the poetic, emotional side of their sound richen via 'The Trilogy of Passions', starting with 'Suspiria De Profundis' in 1994, followed by 'L'âme électrique' the following year. 1997's 'Duality' does not complete the trilogy, Phillipe Fichot choosing to leave the project open-ended. The 'Histories' compilation discs appeared in 1998, with the next album 'Extremum/XX' appearing in 2000. Then followed the 'diptych' of 'InHuman' (2004) and 'ExHuman' (2006), continuing their release of interrelated concept albums.

"The Bach project" was released in January 2008, an album obviously devoted to Bach. Die Form first presented this work live during the annual Bach Days in the German city of Leipzig, where they got invited. Die Form has created a new show for this project with the German dancer Sabine Seume.

Die Form left Trisol to join Out of Line in late 2008. A new single, "Her[t]z Frequenz", was released in October 2008, followed by the "Best of XXX" in November 2008 (a compilation with reworked and remastered songs from the past 30 years). In 2009, "Noir Magnétique" saw Die Form back in a club-oriented sound. The album was made available on CD only, with a special edition limited to 999 copies in a box with a 7" single and extra artwork. Die Form created a new show with Laina Fischbeck on stage. In March 2010, a vinyl boxset compilation of early K-Cassette material was released on Vinyl-On-Demand. In 2011, a double-CD digipak limited edition of Sombre Printemps ("Ambient & Film Music 1+2") has been released on Out Of Line.


Philippe Fichot is the creator of Die Form, and has been a photographer for more than 43 years. His work is almost always in black & white, described as being, "an exploration of the subconscious of eroticism and of the dark poetry of the human body." An artist whose work continually seeks to expose the ultimate beauty, he has mastered the use of light and shade, as well as darkroom manipulation, to an extreme degree. Each photograph is timeless, like seen through old mirrors, and an esthetic offense bordering on the prohibited. The figures float between life and death in obscure fluids - perhaps drowned, or perhaps sleeping and always exposed to the eye of the voyeur. Eroticism (and sex) are in this case not excuses for exhibitionism, but a reflex of the soul which emerges from obscurity : absolute phantoms whose sensitive image commences to exist...

All these dream visions are projections of the theatre of the spirit. They are put on stage with precision and then reprocessed in the dark room by hand, engendering an unknown, microscopical and abstract reality under the surface of the picture. The ultimate dimension of passing time emerges... petrified beauty, a soiled and diaphanous icon.

The voluntary experience of pain is inherently human. It arises from the tragic and desperate foresight of the man who admits the obvious reality of death. It is no longer pretending that destiny that is reserved to others. Feigned or instinctive truth that man immediately raises as premise: since death will be, we will not be. Why then fear what we will never be confronted? This is not so much death that the idea of death that we should approach only because it is the source of our unalterable heavier lamentations. We try, in strategists to hide in our mind and Youth, supreme alliance manages to feed this decisive lie. However, time does its work every day and weighs on our conscience. The dead also. It is therefore not to suffer the pangs of waiting in this naive passivity that makes us vainly hope for mercy. Death, it is only the living who suffer and if "another day another life" 1, no one should forget that this is a life less.  Certainly, "philosophize, c is to learn to die "2 but there is an alternative expressed by Photogrammes: pain. This choice pushed to its climax annihilate not only what it produces but also any sensory expression. This absence is sensitive physiologically what brings us the most reasons that make us psychologically deny death. This is a quest ataraxie constantly renewed a state that is outside of consciousness: I have lost your eyes 3, ie the permeable medium that betrays being, feeling, feeling, in a word ending , life. The experience of pain is in this context a supposed knowledge of death, the materialization of the eternal unknown, a perception that goes astray. It is the execrable morphine calms evil without cure, physical violence for spiritual peace. Finally, it is unnecessary to mirror the girl with dead eyes 4. No need? No.

Photogrammes does a good job of creating a balance between the intense noise of the early work and the smoother, female-vocal dominated music of Poupee and Corpus. Production values are strong, with a good dynamic range. Stand-out tracks include "Will You Live Again?" "Long-Term Survivor," and "Experiment With Tears." If you are only familiar with DF's more techno-inspired work, this may take some getting used to, as it is definitely an industrial album, with a harder, more minimalist edge to it. But I think this is some of DF's most mature and interesting music (once again, speaking from a pre-Confessions standpoint). Overall, a solid album, and an excellent bridge between the harsh experimentalism of DF's past and the lush techno-goth that would be their future.

Marquis de Sade (2 June 1740 – 2 December 1814), was a French aristocrat, revolutionary politician, philosopher, and writer, famous for his libertine sexuality. His works include novels, short stories, plays, dialogues, and political tracts; De Sade is best known for his erotic works, which combined philosophical discourse with pornography, depicting sexual fantasies with an emphasis on violence, criminality, and blasphemy against the Catholic Church. He was a proponent of extreme freedom, unrestrained by morality, religion, or law. The words sadism and sadist are derived from his name.

Les Cent Vingt Journees de Sodome was written in 1785. Sade wrote The 120 Days of Sodom in the space of thirty-seven days in 1785 while he was imprisoned in the Bastille. Being short of writing materials and fearing confiscation, he wrote it in tiny writing on a continuous, twelve-metre-long (39.37 feet) roll of paper, made up of individual small pieces of paper smuggled into the prison and glued together. It tells the story of four wealthy male libertines who resolve to experience the ultimate sexual gratification in orgies. To do this, they seal themselves away for four months in an inaccessible castle in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, France, with a harem of 46 victims, mostly young male and female teenagers, and engage four female brothel keepers to tell the stories of their lives and adventures. The women's narratives form an inspiration for the sexual abuse and torture of the victims, which gradually mounts in intensity and ends in their slaughter. The work went unpublished until the early twentieth century.

D.F. Sadist School is a side profect of Die Form.
“For students of the extreme this educational aid should not be missed. In this side-project you will experience experimental chill out phases, as you learn the values of experimentation, and the importance of relaxation, after the rigors of the previous.”

The samba is a sub-genre of modern samba emerged in Rio de Janeiro in the decade of 1930, made specifically for the parade of a samba school. Every year, the samba schools often promote internal competitions, where several songs are presented to the public in their courts, where at the end, usually between the months of September and October, one of them is chosen as official samba theme for Carnival next year . Sometimes the option is to merge two or more sambas-plot that is to the liking of school members.

The samba champion packs to school during the preparation phase, technical trials to be presented in the carnival parade. For a Samba is considered samba-plot, it should portray the plot chosen by the school carnival committee (not to be confused with plot theme). The samba is one of the items used in the trial of the parades of the schools. The evolution of school much depends on the progress of samba and its development on the promenade: some schools prefer to leave the calmer samba, other busier, or even more romantic! It all depends on your parade style that can change costumes for carnival.

Samba schools that traditionally present with a very large number of components generally use a faster beat to accelerate the movement of revelers in the street and keep the harmony of the whole. Until 1947 the samba schools sang during the show, two or three sambas that made no allusion to the plot. Composed of a previously ready chorus, and during the parade, were made improvisations. In 1946, the institution at the time, organized the parades of the samba schools, banned improvisation, requiring all used the samba-plot, which had already emerged, eventually being sung by some schools. Became famous this year's samba school case Delight Serrinha, who rehearsed the samba-plot "the San Francisco Conference" (authored by Silas olive and Mano Décio da Viola), but when the show turned out to present a samba the yard, which led the school to poor

Among the questions posed by a samba school during carnival, the most important of them is the samba-plot, where it is a snapshot of the history of the college present. It appeared in Rio de Janeiro in mid-1930 by presentation of a samba school that brought the news to the catwalk. The success was so great that other associations have joined the model. The choice of the samba-plot is made through internal competitions in schools, where the songs are presented. But choosing the samba is made ​​by the listening public, namely school members themselves. Often, when two sambas dispute the classification, the leaders choose to merge them in order to achieve better results, a more harmonious and rich rhythm. The lyrics of the samba-plot may be interpretative or descriptive, and the descriptive features the subject in great detail.

The melody should be lively and contagious, with striking features, own school which has, beyond good taste
as the joint letter. It is important that the harmony of melody facilitates the corner, because in this way promotes the learning of the letter and contagious the audience, singing fervently, making the most beautiful sight. In the event of breakdown in the sound truck during the presentation of some samba school, the members will be responsible for pulling the samba until the end of the parade, in total harmony with the battery drums to ensure they do not lose points.

In fact, a crash sound car does not cause loss of points, but if the members do not take the paper handles, it will lead to such losses. Therefore, it is important that all components participate in the testing in order to sustain the school if any problem at the time of the parade. The harmony and integration become perfect when the group is well rehearsed. Of sambas-plot, will be evaluated by the judges: the letter, the suitability of the same to the plot, good taste and poetic richness, the meshing of the verses to the melodies, the built-in rhythm to lyrics, the musical harmony, ease letter and music, among others.

There are always those sambas that, each year, are remembered at dances, parties and carnival celebrations as the best ever written and sung since 1932, when it happened the first parade of the Rio schools. Whether through symbolize the breaking of barriers in the world of samba or the inventiveness of his verses and melodies, they went down in history as carnival classics. To warm your revelry with the best of samba, elected our top 10, we share with you below. Listen, recall old times and good romping!

The Portela name comes from the time of colonial Brazil when the then Irajá parish, during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was a region occupied by productive sugar mills, including the Mill of Portela between the Treasury Camp to Rio das Pedras. - what is known today as Madureira (Lourenço Madureira, one of the most famous traders of his time)
With the crisis of the economic model based on labor, slave labor throughout the nineteenth century, the region was slowly going into crisis. After the Proclamation of the Republic of Brazil and the urban reforms that resulted in much of expulsion of population living in the center of Rio de Janeiro, many ended up fleeing to the farthest regions of the center, occupying the hills and old estates, including, the old Mill of Portela. With the changes in Rio de Janeiro, hitherto region of Rio das Pedras inherit the name of the nearby river, named the sanitarian Oswaldo Cruz that wiped out yellow fever in the city.
The region of Oswaldo Cruz was occupied mostly by former slaves in Minas Gerais and former State of Rio de Janeiro (which did not include the city of Rio de Janeiro, autonomous federal district) and, during the process of cleaning the center of Rio, did not receive basic assistance from the government, why there was no water or common electricity in the most affluent neighborhoods in Rio. Access and movement of the residents was also hampered by huge Walloons. The main route of the region was the road Portela, who inherited the old mill name. Among the social problems, the residents of Oswaldo Cruz manifested themselves culturally in religious festivals, drumming and jongo, past heritage and slave ancestors, something which would influence the history of Portela.

Was founded on March 5, 1953 from the union of two samba schools in the Morro do Salgueiro: Blue and White and When I Say. The States Willow, third existing school in that area and had as main representative the samba Joaquim Pants Larga, did not agree with the merger and, therefore, missed out. Later he disappeared. In his first parade, with the theme "Pilgrimage to Bahia" in 1954, the Academic Willow surprised the audience and achieved third place, ahead of Portela.
The first president of the Willow was Paulino de Oliveira and in the years that followed, school dared to deal with scenarios that they put the black highlighted, and not as extras. It is striking example of this new style, Ship Slave (1957). But it was in 1958, under the presidency of Nelson Andrade, the college adopted the motto that brings to this day: neither better nor worse, just a different school. Nelson Andrade was responsible for the way the carnival Fernando Pamplona for Willow in 1960, ushering in a major change in school look. Pamplona has created a team of it, the couple Dirceu and Marie Lousie Nery, Arlindo Rodrigues and Nilton Sá, revolutionized the aesthetics of parades of schools samba.Essa trend was reinforced with the arrival of Fernando Pamplona and later Arlindo Rodrigues, they rescued black characters that have enriched the history of Brazil, although they were slightly portrayed in textbooks, as Zumbi dos Palmares (Palmares - 1960), Xica da Silva (Xica da Silva - 1963) and King Chico (Chico Rei - 1964) . in the 1970s, the school embodies the young artist Joãosinho Thirty, who was a student of Pamplona, in memorable shows 1971 Feast for a King Black (samba composed of Zuzuca, with the carnival Joãosinho Thirty with which obtains its 5th title and the championship in 74/75 with king of France in haunt Island (samba composed in 1974 by Joe Di and Trickster having as carnivalesque Thirty Joãosinho that earned him his 6th title of the carnival) and king Solomon's mines (samba compound in 1975 by Nininha Rossi, Dauro Ribeiro, Zé Mário Pinto and stone and with the carnivalesque Thirty Joãosinho with which he won his 7th title).

Rebuilding in 2007 Willow went in search of their roots to find in East Africa, the history of Candaces, black queens who ruled the Empire Meroe seven centuries before Christ. Everything seemed perfect for a victory - or at least the runner-up. The school made ​​a brilliant show and left acclaimed by the public and the press as a postulant for the title. This expectation lasted only until the reading of the first notes on Ash Wednesday. Inexplicably jurors gave poor grades to school. Away from the championship battle, Willow finished the investigation in 7th place. In 2008, speaking of the city of Rio de Janeiro, the Willow won the runner-up.
After the runner-up, Willow held elections for the choice of the executive board responsible for school command in the triennium 2008-2010. The winner was the candidate of the situation, Regina Celi Fernandes Duran, second woman in history to preside over the school.

While many schools have only window, the Empire Serrano has mirror. If sees, appreciates, it dignifies. He is less interested in "appears" and more interested in "being what it is." Thank God! Mirror that reflects to transmit their ancestral knowledge, his shrine lessons, principles and fundamentals. The Empire Serrano is a giant who does not give in easily to the ripple of modern times. Being large, it has with himself and his supporters that sacred commitment to preserve the richness of its history. Touching and charming that your journey! For this, the school picked up a lot. He picked up back there when he broke the hegemony of the great and became a glance great too. Caught when his poet-symbol, Silas de Oliveira, was called to testify on some samba praised freedom in days of political dictatorship. He picked up, too, when this story began sponsoring the carnival. When he opened his book to tell the story of a businessman, in the distant 1997, there Empire understood that distance themselves from their historical verve does not match its flag. I could hardly imagine that after that incident, the error would become the rule, and it would be the last bastion of samba to fight and resist against invasive fury of sponsored themes, personalities and foreign elements to samba. Today penalized are those who do not surrender to marketing. But since "Imperian faith not tired," the fight're purchased, and the Empire does not give up. The Empire is so. It has its peculiarities. It is a capital school, imperative male ... "The" Empire is a man with H! "A child's green hope not run from a fight / Come fight!" - Proclaims in one of his poetic and self-explanatory verses. And even though our children and our children's children one day begin to lose the reference that takes a samba school parade of leading a people to sing with tears a samba-plot; and even if one day lose the notion that the spectacle of the samba schools can grow without losing its fundamental roots ... suffice someone look, wherever you are parading the Empire Serrano

Hello, Big Brother isn't watching but datamining...The US Department of Defense (DoD) wants contractors to mine your social media posts to develop new ways for the US government to infer what you’re really thinking and feeling and to predict what you’ll do next. Pentagon documents released over the last few months identify ongoing classified research in this area that the federal government plans to expand, by investing millions more dollars.

The unclassified documents, which call on external scientists, institutions and companies to submit proposals for research projects, not only catalogue how far US military capabilities have come, but also reveal the Pentagon’s goals: building the US intelligence community’s capacity to forecast population behavior at home and abroad, especially groups involved in political activism. They throw light on the extent to which the Pentagon’s classified pre-crime R&D has advanced, and how the US military intends to deploy it in operations around the world.

The Pentagon wants to:
“… recognize/predict social contexts, relationships, networks, and intentions from social media, taking into account non-verbal communication such as gestures, micro-expressions, posture, and latent semantics of text and speech.”

Watched any great books lately? Now you can. The most celebrated graphic novel of all time that broke the conventional mold continues to break new ground. Watchmen illustrator Dave Gibbons oversees this digital version of the graphic novel that adds limited motion, voice and sound to the book's strikingly drawn panels. All 12 chapters of the story are here, nearly 5 hours spanning everything from the mysterious demise of the Comedian to the crisscrossed destinies of loosely allied superheroes to their fateful impact on the world.

A critical and commercial success, Watchmen is highly regarded in the comics industry and is frequently considered by several critics and reviewers as comics' greatest series and graphic novel. In time, the series has also become one of the best-selling graphic novels ever published. Watchmen was the only graphic novel to appear on Time's 2005 "All-Time 100 Greatest Novels" list, where Time critic Lev Grossman described the story as "a heart-pounding, heartbreaking read and a watershed in the evolution of a young medium." It later appeared on Time's 2009 "Top 10 Graphic Novels" list, where Grossman further praised Watchmen, proclaiming "It’s way beyond cliché at this point to call Watchmen the greatest superhero comic ever written-slash-drawn.

The Watchmen: Motion Comic is a 2008 American animated short film series of motion comics for web and television based on the DC comic book series Watchmen, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons. The series consists of twelve abridged 25–30 minute segments, each based on and sharing a name with one of the twelve chapters of the book. Both male and female characters are voiced by actor Tom Stechschulte. It was released on DVD in March 2009 to coincide with the Watchmen movie’s release.

In October 1985, during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and on the eve of nuclear war, a depressed Rorschach, one of several outlawed vigilante superheroes, begins to investigate why all former masked superheroes are either dead or have declined. When another one of his former colleagues is murdered, the outlawed but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion--a disbanded group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers--Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future.
