Fanmade mix of some tracks from Max Richter's Sleep album (which is over 8 hours long in total). Very chilled out/ambient/minimalist stuff:

Man that's class. I've saved it to my YT playlist.

You might like this too, it's along similar lines. More of a Brian Eno feel to it with shoegazy/ethereal vocals. Reminds me of the score to the slo-mo scenes in Dredd. There's a link to their Bandcamp page in the notes:

Unrelated to him, because obviously he's from a very privileged background. But I do think working class people in the UK and US feel abandoned by left wing politics, which has resulted in Brexit and Trump.

I have family in the Valleys in Wales where I visit regularly, a very working class area where the mines used to be, these are predominantly white areas where there's no industry, career prospects, tourism etc, I see a lot of these people I know sharing stuff like 'All Lives Matter' and I genuinely don't believe they mean it to be racist, more out of ignorance, these people are living in near poverty yet everywhere they turn in the media they are being hammered with this message that white people are inherently priveliged and they're thinking 'How the fuck am I privileged'.

It doesn't help that this type of identity politics is generally peddled by people from a middle class background with a university education. We have people from privileged backgrounds lecturing people from working class backgrounds how privileged they are, it's only natural they're going to get pissed off.

Laurence Fox launching a new political party:

"The people of the United Kingdom are tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have, in history, stood together against."

So unusual for a conservative political party to have such a blind view of history, no?

I agree with what should be the core message of the BLM movement (as in, cops shouldn't be killing black people), when these activists, whether its BLM/Trans activists/SJW's start getting into stuff like cultural appropriation and other forms of identity politics I bow out.

Probably various interconnected reasons why the people in different African countries aren't a focus for BLM, such as the fact that the countries that are in poverty are pretty much all black, from top to bottom so that particular issue of division is not relevant; the fact that in these countries there are other pressing issues to face such as the immediate dangers of your family starving to death, your kids being recruited into or killed by illegal paramilitary groups; surviving civil wars; living in a hostile natural environment and the massive levels of corruption in many of these places. Just pointing out the obvious. 

Plus, there are countless charity organizations operating there to try to build schools, houses, educate the people and teach them how to farm and trying to provide clean water and basic medical care.

It's an entirely different kettle of fish for a million reasons. That said, I'm against the BLM organisation as it seems to be more harmful and regressive in terms of solving whatever issues face African Americans. I think that telling young black men (because they seem to be the ones most caught up) that they are victims, that first and foremost they are black, that that is the most important aspect of their identity, can only cause more damage. They need their Jordan Peterson to tell them, no! First and foremost you are an individual, you have certain responsibilities to live up to, society has certain reasonable demands to make of you and you will only improve your position if you actively choose to. That is not to say racism doesn't exist or that the system isn't rigged against them in certain ways, but they can still be inspired to become more. Telling them that they are essentially hated by everyone, looked down upon and seen as pathetic, violent and criminal must be incredibly dehumanizing. But that is the self- crippling message being put forth. And I'm not sure it's reflective of the outlook of most modern white Americans.

Slight change of pace here, but if Black Lives Matter so much why isn't everyone trying to save all the black lives being needlessly lost in Africa every day of the week through starvation? The PC brigade could do with having a bit of a think about that instead of getting on their knees for the black criminals shot by the cops in the US. The situation in the US has so many facets to it and yet the world hunger situation has the solution staring us in the face. Feed them. The major difference I see is that there is no profit in it so that must be why that one isn't getting rammed down our throats, or indeed the throats of those dying of starvation.

Top 5 billionaires in the world wouldn't even feel a dent in their balance to solve that one, but instead use their influence to "save" us all from the likes of racism and that other thing I always bang on about.

Just some thoughts. Back on topic the easy solution for the Kardashian thing there is to put it in the women's prison. In solitary confinement.

Yeah because relief aid to African countries hasn't been a thing for decades. And advertisements for charities don't exist, no siree. Those guys on the street trying to sign you up for donations? Hmm, doesn't fit your narrative so let's just casually ignore all the efforts and put down people that are striving for change in another place that needs it.

George Floyd was a petty criminal, doesn't mean the cop was allowed to be his judge, jury and executioner, now does it? Breona Taylor - not a criminal. You know, I'm not arsed trawling the internet to find all their names because the information is freely available, but most of the black people shot by white police weren't criminals or engaging in activities that warranted lethal force.

They are out but not too plentiful yet. I got 40 or so the other week but not even 10 today. It needs to rain a good bit more and the ground a good bit softer. It's usually high season nearer to halloween anyway.

For the beginner the best thing to do is familiarise yourself with what they look like. look at as many pics online as possible, then head up to the hills. They are very distinctive looking. Grazing land is usually best as the grass is a bit shorter. They grow all over the place so don't be disheartened if you waste a few days looking before you find anything. Pissing rain and fairly cold is best conditions.

Much, much appreciated!!
Will hold on for a week or two and then head out.
Can't afford to waste a couple of days looking out for them because of working too much and stuff, but will give it a shot or two and see what the lady luck will have
for me.

Wed like to but we're in no rush

Yeah definitely leaning harder on the newer In Flames/Gojira/Machine Head influence for sure. Having a turntablist in the band has really opened the sound up

Having listened to a good few things of yours, that sounds like sarcasm.
