Thousands of Tiny Futures (2018) Jussi Parikka. Complicated but interesting… The text introduces useful concepts such as “fossilized sunshine” (oil). There is strong emphasis on infrastructure. Geomancer (2017) by Lawrence Lek seems worthwhile. The short extract portrays the horror an AI will feel moments before it becomes self-aware (Just like in the Lovecraft I just read!).

Omar Souleyman’s Björk – Crystalline remix (2012) is the future. His new album To Syria, With Love is available on Soundcloud. Es Samra is my favorite so far.
A new episode of Somewhere I’ve Never Been by Steph Kretowicz & Kimmo Modig is available on Mixcloud. Apparently they are publishing each episode through a different channel. I guess it’s fitting to the theme of the book. I’ve enjoyed the episodes so far and I think they should translate it into Finnish and sell it to Yle. The Ableton Live automations on Kretowicz’s voice could be easily used for an actor speaking Finnish. Sari TM Kivinen would have the perfect accent.
All of the episodes of Pietari’s podcast series Pietari K. kävi täällä for Yle are now online. The episode on Kalle Päätalo as a cyborg is particularly fun. Lawrence Lek’s Sinofuturism (2016) is mentioned.
Returning soulfully to Soundcloud with a mG2 fuelled moods.
Sinofuturism 1839 – 2046 AD (2016) Lawrence Lek. The focus of the essay is important and it touches many interesting topics but the film is a tad repetitive. A useful introduction for anyone interested in China and etno-futurisms. The points of the film are said early on and recapped at the end. I particularly liked the bits analysing Chinese/Global gambling.
