news on the march

Welcome to Monday’s News on the March – The week that was in my digital world.

Article by Richard Williams at Thebluemoment:

“This is my 19th album,” Bruce Springsteen says towards the beginning of the film Western Stars, “and I’m still writing songs about cars.” But then he excuses himself by explaining how cars can become a metaphor for all kinds of things, including travelling without getting anywhere.

Western Stars is a performance film, but much more than that. Recorded over two days in front of a small audience in the hayloft of the 19th century wooden barn on his property in New Jersey, it features the 13 songs from the recent album of the same name.… (read more).

Article by Intellectualshaman:

As we walked away from the party, I realized everyone was getting high except Joy. She was sober, shockingly sober. She was watching everyone, like a feral cat, searching for an incoherent mouse. I felt these thoughts like electricity at the back of my brain and the hairs on my neck stood up, tingling with high voltage.

What do you think of that girl?” I asked. …Read more

Audio podcast at Sam Harris:

In this episode of the Making Sense podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Andrew McAfee about the history of human progress and the modern uncoupling of our prosperity from resource consumption. They discuss the pitfalls and hidden virtues of capitalism, technological progress, environmental policy, the future of the developing world, and other topics. (Listen to full podcast).

Video Podcast by Bret Weinstein:

Douglas Murray, best selling author of 5 books including “The Strange Death of Europe” and “The Madness of Crowds” joins Bret Weinstein on the DarkHorse podcast to discuss wide range of controversial topics.

This is one of the most thought-provoking podcasts I have seen in a while. Of all the conversations Douglas has had about his newest book “The Madness of Crowds” this one is easily the best. Bret is an extremely engaging interviewer.…. (Watch full videopodcast)

Article by Reely Bernie:

I am only 7 years old, running aimlessly around the neighborhood cul de sac like any 7-year-old would do.

“Poltergeist is playing, Poltergeist is playing!” yells Deedoo, my next door neighbor who’s one year younger than me. 

I have no idea what “Poltergeist” is. Is it a tv show maybe having something to do with Star Wars because Deedoo knows that’s my thing? Is it a cartoon? (Read more)

    Springsteen at one time was so guarded with himself. Now he out there quite a bit. I remember a time when he would not do a TV show music spot…now he is doing a movie.

    • I didn’t know that about him not doing TV spots. I always thought he was very upfront with the media and doing Democrat rallys and so forth. He’s definitely seemed more inclined towards self-marketing the older he has got.

        In the late 70s through mid 80s he was really private. He did the No Nukes show in 79 and that was big.
        It wasn’t until 92 that he appeared on SNL…that was one of the first ever. He was really closed to network tv

      • I see. It would have been interesting to see how his legacy would have changed for better or worse if he had remained private.

      • badfinger20 says:

        He just opened up in the 90s for some reason…he hated hype…in a concert in London I believe in 75 he ripped down his own posters lol.
