➜ Who Stole the Four-Hour Workday? | VICE United States
Nice little unexpected political piece over at Vice about a society where we all can work shorter hours and everything would be better. I worked 230+ something hours last month, in a 5 hour work week that’s 11,5 hours a day. Finding a balance is important.
Here’s another interesting read for you:
The Abolition of Work, by Bob Black
Finally, in the good words of Jack Kerouac:
“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.”
"It turns out that Blake was part of a Christian movement that saw sex as profoundly holy, and arguably sacred in a way no other earthly thing could be. Sex was a means to connect with and see God and all that is holy. It was also a group, to get your curiosity going, that identified the side-wound on Christ from the spear, as Jesus’ vagina,3 and for a sect that believes in sacred sexuality, that is an interesting concept to run with."
William Blake has always been an interesting character for me. Here’s a quote from this review of a new book about him.
➜ Swallows&Daggers | Craig Chazen Interview
Craig “Boxcar” Chazen shares a good perspective on tattooing. Read and ponder, it’s well worth your time.
➜ PBS: Arts in Context | A Moving Canvas |
PBS-documentary about tattooing. Not really the part of the culture that’s most interesting to me, but still worth a watch.
➜ Jesse Jacoby - Raw Cure: Healing beyond medicine
I finished this book today. Very much recommended to anyone interested in vegan raw food and the health benefits compared to a traditional western diet. Jesse teaches you a lot and it was a truly inspirational read. No recipes in this one but that you will find all over the net or in other books. Read it!
➜ En fascists bekännelser | Politisk Filosofi
Karim Jebari förklarar fascismens väsen och dragning på folk. Intressant grepp och bra idé. Know your enemy
➜ Freunde von Freunden — Nor Toma
This might be a bit to nerdy for most people but here is an article about Nor Toma who has a pretty famous boyfriend, the tattooer Jonas “Uggli” Nyberg (Kosmos Tattoo, previously Göteborg Classic Tattooing). For the stalker-type tattoo enthusiasts who wants insight into this guys life it’s interesting to read about Nor and see their home.

For those days when I doubt humans and hate everyone. A reminder that people are fantastic
I noticed that a lot of people liked the tattoos by Max Kuhn that I posted. I also got 8 new followers over night, welcome! Here is a very nice interview with Max, well worth looking into. I hope to get something palm sized from him one day, seems like a good guy.
Edit: and also I just passed 6000 posts on this blog. Congratulations to me!
Nice torrent site for leftist material
