I don't usually talk politics here, I usually save that for FB/Twitter, but sometimes events overtake me and bleed into my work.

This video for a friend's mashup is a case in point, the theme of Kanye's New Slaves is already very critical about wage slavery and consumption, but I added a new element because while making it the vote for bombing Syria came in. Throw in what's happening in locked down Paris with COP21 (John invited himself to the last COP when we were in Durban, very different times and different security) and all that, and you have a strange mix of pop video and zeitgeist state of the nation....had a lot of fun with drone videos, projections and old cinema ads.

It also marks something of a step out of retirement for me - not completely, still not going to make my own mashups or videos for those. But for other people, if I like the tune, yes.

Kanye of the Stone Age by ToTom, who did this mashup is available to download: https://totom.bandcamp.com/album/kanye-of-the-stone-age - it's recommended, especially the bonus tracks like this one.
