Venite Adoremus Dominum
COSMIC LOVE: HANGOVER HELL TO ELECTRIC HEAVEN. Cosmic Love was composed in about an hour: I had a hangover crushing down on me and when the song arrived it came as sweet release. That name was always a joke: a bad working title that’s ended up sticking to it forever: neither the words ‘Cosmic’ or ‘Love’ appear at any point in the lyrics. The song is about being blinded by love. At first you want to escape, to find your way out of the darkness. You see a map in the stars above and you know that you can find your way back home, but then you realise that your love is the darkness, so you decide to stay: you give yourself willingly to a starless existence. Pretty much just that, yep. A lot of people read this song in a lot of different ways. I like that a lot and I encourage it. David Vann - one of my favourite writers out - once wrote something beautiful for me about this song. I will always be grateful for that. I drifted through a dreamy day making the dreamy video for Cosmic Love. I danced around in whirls of smoke and autumn leaves and a bazillion lightbulbs, me all catsuited, hot to the point of hallucination. I love the dress that Petra made: hundreds of little lights congregating around the heart: my electric blood, electric love. This is my favourite song from the album, so the video had to be special. I knew wanted my friends Tabitha and Tom to direct it. I think it’s the best video so far and I hope you like it. As I was typing this I found another leaf in my hair … x
Scotland has been building up to voting on whether they should become Independent from the United Kingdom since 2012, the Idea’s been in the works since the ’50s. Yes voters want to be independent, No voters want to stay in the UK.

We make “funny videos” on the Internet.

…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.
That means that…
…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.
…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.
If this happens…
…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.
Ten years from now…
…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.
Now, you might be thinking…
…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?
…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.
…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.
In a few months…
…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.
