On a typically drizzly Seattle night this past May, a crowd shuffled through metal detectors to pack the plaza outside CenturyLink Field, the downtown stadium where the Seahawks play football. Beneath a small white party tent sat Paul Allen—music nerd, lead guitarist of blues-based rockers The Underthinkers, philanthropic Renaissance Man, and a Microsoft cofounder. It’s not unusual to see him at the stadium during football games (he owns the team, along with the Portland Trailblazers), but tonight he was there to watch the first headline show at Seattle’s newest music event, the Upstream Music Festival and Summit, which he also founded. advertisement advertisement As a cloud of vape vapor descended over the audience, Allen and his companion reclined in lounge chairs and the producer DJ and MC Flying Lotus (real name Steven Ellison) took the stage. Ellison often performs in a special contraption: a traditional DJ booth surrounded by projection screens, … [Read more...] about A Tech Billionaire Wants To Reboot The “Best Music Scene In The World”
Oxford Dictionaries defines its official Word of the Year, post-truth, as “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” This month, we will briefly highlight each day a major moment from 2016 that most exemplifies the concept of post-truth. Many of these moments will, inevitably, pertain to our president-elect. advertisement The election of 2016 truly was historic. After a tense, long-fought, ideologically fraught, emotionally exhausting campaign that left at least half of the country with a de facto diagnosis of low-level post-traumatic stress disorder, one party’s nominee emerged way ahead at the polls–in the process earning not just more votes than the other candidate, but also earning more overall votes than any white man to run for the office in the history of the United States. It might be fair to call the historic results and … [Read more...] about The Year In Post-Truth, Day Five: Donald Trump’s “Historic Landslide Blowout”
“Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” advertisement advertisement While those words were first typed in an email by Bridget Anne Kelly, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s now-former deputy chief of staff, way back in September of 2013, their full impact wasn’t felt until this past November. That’s when Kelly and her literal partner in crime, David Wildstein at the traffic-and-transportation-managing Port Authority governmental agency, were found guilty on all charges related to the lane-closing scandal that’s come to be known as Bridgegate. How an 8-word email exploded into a full-on, “gate”-worthy political disaster is a rich and sordid tale of the kind that Jersey-based characters are so good at producing. As the legend goes: Christie and his crew were miffed that Fort Lee mayor Mark Sokolich had not fallen in line with other state democrats and endorsed Christie’s re-election bid. To punish him, Kelly and … [Read more...] about Truth, Lies, And Traffic Cones: Why Bridgegate Is The Perfect Post-Truth Scandal
