For three decades, the film canisters sat undisturbed in a cellar beneath the Swedish National Broadcasting Company. Inside was roll after roll of startlingly fresh and candid 16mm footage shot in the 1960s and 1970s in the United States, all of it focused on the anti-war and Black Power movements. When filmmaker Göran Hugo Olsson […]
In November 1971, Ginger Baker, the legendary drummer of Cream and Blind Faith, decided to set up a recording studio in Lagos, then the capital of Nigeria. Baker was one of the first rock musicians to realize the potential of African music. He also decided that it would be a rewarding musical experience to travel […]
ON an evening in late February at a club here called the Monkey House, there was a family reunion of sorts. As the band Rough Francis roared through a set of anthemic punk rock, Bobby Hackney leaned against the bar and beamed. Three of his sons Bobby Jr., Julian and Urian are in […]
This post is mainly for those new to the genre or rather concept of Northern Soul. Those that already know can find a couple of documentaries to watch or to download the book “Northern Soul: Music, drugs and subcultural identity” as a pdf further down this on the side. I Loooooooove Northern Soul, the cheer […]
Drum & Bass: The Movement explores how a unique UK club culture rose from the underground to become a global phenomenon infiltrating and influencing disciplines from mainstream pop music to video games.

Conspiracy = The act of two or more persons, called conspirators, working secretly to obtain some goal, usually understood with negative connotations. I’m guessing that most people laughing about conspiracies, don’t really know what it mean in a dictionary sense. Most of these people think it’s all about these weirdos claiming that the reptile aliens run the world and […]
One book at the National Library of Sweden stands out among the rest: the Codex Gigas. Bound in wood, consisting of 620 pages that are each nearly three feet long, and weighing in at 165 pounds, it is quite a hefty tome. But it’s not the size of the Codex Gigas that is its most intriguing feature. […]
9/10 … The show in itself is really good, and they travel to all kinds of locations to investigate. Since it’s American produced we get the usual half whispering narrator and some shaky hand held camera to make it more exciting for the general public. But all in all really good.
This escape theory is certainly interesting and since I’m an open minded person, I don’t discard claims like this when there are enough evidence to back them up. But the official story might as well be correct one, we will probably never know with a 100% certainty.
10/10 … After watching two seasons of this documentary TV Show, I think it is by far the best one I have ever seen. The host or main researcher Luis Elizondo, a former military counter-intelligence officer approaches this topic really serious and with a scientific mindset. He doesn’t go close to claiming it’s ”little gray men”, but know the phenomena is real and wants to find answers to what it could be.
8/10 … Mr. Gaye had one of the most amazing voices in the history of soul music, but unfortunately with a tormented soul, that we can properly put on his fucked up father. A father that couldn’t give his son praise for his accomplishments, a cross-dressing pastor that gave his son shit for not making ”gods” music 😡, and ultimately killed him the day before Marvin would turn 45. May he rot in his christian hell forever and ever.
The text down below is from Wikipedia, I’m just facinated by how the sociopath Stephanie Rasmussem responded during her interiogation. You just have to watch and listen to that clip. On February 24, 1986, the body of Sherri Rasmussen (born February 7, 1957) was found dead in the apartment she shared with her husband, John Ruetten, in Van […]
I have no idea why Netflix makes it so hard to browse the different genres on their site. I started to look into it when it wanted to find movies from smaller countries in South America or the Middle-East but couldn’t in any easy way. Netflix will only recommend specific movies and genres if you’ve […]
7/10 … WWe get to follow the FBI’s hunt for the founder of the famous online darkweb drug-store, and also learn about the history of Silk road. The creator of Silk road is very facinating, both how he, Ross Ulbricht created it and how he kind of kept a low profile and didn’t go nuts when becoming a millionaire but kept a low profile.
9/10 … It makes me sick to my stomach to see that Al-Mustafa Shabazz who dies during the investigation gets a hero’s funeral. I don’t care what or how much good he have done in his life afterwards, he let 2 innocent men root in prison and HE KILLED MALCOLM X. He’s a traitor to all black people and the human race. If I ever get to Newark I will piss on his grave! …..
8/10 … Wu-Tang Clan is my all-time favourite hip hop act and Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon and GZA are all on my top 10 list of favourite rappers…..
