By Rali Chorbadzhiyska Remember that time Shia LaBeouf closed himself in a room with a bunch of (random) items and invited people to come in and do whatever they like to him (using these items) as part of an artistic performance/experiment? Shia was alone in the room and combined with the passivity required by the … Continue reading Marina Abramovic and the Fluxus legacy

By Rali Chorbadzhiyska Back when I was 16 I read Jack Kerouac's most famous novel and was inspired to write a poem. The Beat Generation seemed 'cool' and I even tried Burroughs' 'Naked Lunch' but I congratulate anyone who managed to finish this book. I couldn't. I look back at my naive attempt and I … Continue reading Inspired by Jack Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’
For those of you who are into Hip-Hop (and longer reads)!
A Tribe Called Quest’s sixth album, We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service, is a reminder of how much time has passed. As Noisey editor Kyle Kramer notes, it brings Phife Dawg’s voice back from the dead, uses familiar samples, and has that unmistakable Tribe groove. But the hip-hop group’s final studio album also marks now, and for many fans is very much relevant and political, especially given its release the day after the U.S. presidential election in 2016.
Kramer talks with Q-Tip about being egoless and instinctive — and staying true to himself and to Tribe while evolving with the sound of hip-hop.
I think you have to always look ahead, in anything. We sometimes become creatures of habit, and we want to continue to do things that we maybe have enjoyed or that strike a particular chord that we’ve experienced a long, long…

By Rali Chorbadzhiyska A few years after the coining of the term ‘Afro-Surrealism’ by Amiri Baraka in the 20th century, D. Scott Miller writes the movement’s manifesto in 2009. Miller outlines the newness of Afro-Surrealism by also defending its engagement with past influences. He accounts for the politicising of the aesthetics with the prefix … Continue reading The Topicality of Afro-Surrealism Today and Forever: A Critical Analysis of the ‘Afro-Surreal Manifesto’ by D.

Fans of Jodi Picoult’s touching stories and engaging characters? Our favourites by her include ‘Handle With Care’ and ‘My Sister’s Keeper’. ‘Leaving Time’ is a beautiful read is on our reading list! We liked this succinct and intriguing review (beware of spoilers). We urge you to give it a try even if it is outside your comfort reader-zone! 🙂
The book alternates between Alice the Elephant Keeper and teen daughter Jenna, who wants to find out how her mom died. So she talks to the psychic. There are multiple narrators for Jenna’s half of the book, and only some are interesting.
And then (spoiler) not quite, but ‘it was all a dream’ twist ending. Nothing is as it seems. There are clues to The Truth but they are all carefully explained away each time. Very annoying.
