#watch and

PAINTBACK by Legacy BLN – “Answering messages of hate with love & art.”

Jon Stewart on Donald Trump – Is a man baby eligible to become president?

Comédie Française Occupée ! – “Occupation de Comédie-Française, institution culturelle, les 26, 27 et 28 avril 2016 contre la loi Travail et son monde, pour la défense du régime des intermittents du spectacle”

On ne sait jamais ce qu’on filme, un film de Matthieu Bareyre et Thibaut Dufait – “Violences policières sur manifestants menottés le 28.04.2016 à Paris, Place de la République – 1h37 du matin.”


Books That Ursula K. Le Guin Likes and Wants You to Read – “This list is not ‘my favorite books.’ It’s just a list of books I’ve read or re-read, recently, that I liked and wanted to tell people about.”


George Zimmerman to auction gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin – “Former neighbourhood watch volunteer who was acquitted of murdering unarmed teenager touts firearm as a ‘piece of American history”

Eulogy for the weeds. An interview with Ellie Irons – “not all humans are equally responsible for the ecological crises we find ourselves in; just like its dangerous to universalize and call all green, spontaneously growing organisms weedy invaders, it’s problematic not to address context, history, and social forces when assigning blame and providing care in the face of the climate crises.”

Woman broadcasts herself on Periscope committing suicide – “People watching commented: “We’re waiting” and “I think it’s fun.””

[Aristotle], On Trolling – “the desire to be right on the internet is natural and present to all.”

A Gorgeous Guide to the Earliest Computers – “Most of these machines have never been seen before in this context, so enjoy this spectacularly retro piece of early computing history.”


#Rupperswil und ein unterirdischer Tweet – “Die Asyl- und die Ausländerpolitik in der Schweiz und in Europa läuft zu falsch, als dass ich auf die Gefühle von jedem von euch in jeder Situation Rücksicht nehmen könnte. Zu viele Menschen, auch Kinder, ertrinken im Mittelmeer. Zu viele sterben in Spitälern ohne Medikamente. Zu viele werden brutalen Menschenhändlern und Regimes ausgeliefert. Zu teilnahmslos ist unsere Gesellschaft bei alledem.”

Aufruf gegen die globale Ohnmacht – “Innert sechs Wochen hat sich die Protestbewegung Nuit Debout von Paris aus im ganzen Land ausgebreitet. Am 15. Mai soll die Aktion internationalisiert werden.”

Car « révolution » n’est pas un mot dans nos bouches, mais un feu dans notre cœur. – “En attendant, il n’y a plus de position neutre : tous ceux qui s’expriment autour de ce qui gronde en France en ce moment se rangent d’un côté ou de l’autre, pour la destitution du gouvernement ou contre elle. Entre les deux, il n’y a rien. Car « révolution » n’est pas un mot dans nos bouches, mais un feu dans notre cœur.”
