Janelle Monae’s ‘Dirty Computer’ -Review on Rolling Stone

I stumbled on this review and watched the film.

The good:
I really like the aesthetic imaginations
many outstanding musical elements

The not so good:
It’s basically a hedonism fest
The social themes and challenges are tackled on a very superficial level.
For my taste it is too oversexualized.

My personal list of top 10 cultural works

Over on Twitter I`ve reached 10000 tweets the other day and as a countdown to the 10000th tweet I decided to create a list of the 10 works that most helped me grow as a person and as an artist.

Here is that list as one posting and because of the number of tweets I just decided I`ll leave those numbers in front of the works:

9991 Van Gogh – Cafe Terrace at Night

Gogh4“ von Vincent van Gogh – Unbekannt. Lizenziert unter Gemeinfrei über Wikimedia Commons.

9992 Georg Büchner “Danton’s Tod”

Grobe Sinne

9993 Miles Davis – Bitches Brew

9995 The Simpsons – “Lisa’s Substitute”

9996 Beethoven – Symphony Nr. 7 II. Allegretto

9993 Blackbird (Lennon/McCartney) – Jaco Pastorius

9997 Network – “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it”

9998 Igor Stravinsky – Rite of Spring (esp. from minute 3:25)

9999 Goethe – “Faust”

10000 is not a work of fiction but a quote by Martin Luther King:

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
