book I’m reading,long quote
Reading SJ Langer’s “Theorizing transgender identity for clinical practice” and holy shit it’s amazing
“The understanding of gender and consciousness do not fit neatly into a physical or mental space. Both are qualitative subjective experiences and sinultaneously part of the natural physical realm. There is an evidential gap between our first-person subjective interospection and scientifically measured brain events. As opposed to a thing, consciousness is practically a process. It is an embodied physical phenomenon: simultaneously a physical property of the natural world and a subjectice mental apparatus. This is a rejection of both dualism and materialism. Consciousness is an "inner, first-person, qualitative phenomenon." This definition succinctly captures gender identity as well. The fact that consciousness does not fit neatly into a discrete category makes duelists nervous. We could say the same about gender. It is not a static entity; it is a dynamic process running throughout our beings. Gender does not only reside in certain areas of our bodies, brains, or minds; gender is everywhere and nowhere. It is both physical and mental. It is non-binary but comes in shades from multiple aspects of our bodies. These facts make people fearful, nervous, angry, homicidal (high rates of violence/harassment/abuse against trans people) and suicidal. The search for an etiology of trans experience in brain scans is not taking the full picture into account, that gender is more complex than a single neurological process or discrete brain area. Our brains react to a singular experience in different areas of the brain simultaneously”

Remeber back when Eugen refused to do this and then implemented authorized fetch because some big school wanted it?
So like, a coup has 2 parts right? You have 1) a group led by the people who aren’t the current head of state that 2) tries to overthrow the current head of state and install themselves into power.
The current head of state getting his supporters to disrupt a specific governmental action isn’t a coup
Fascists don’t do coups. They form alliances with traditional conservatives to get power through the normal political systems and then once they’re in power they consolidate and ditch their conservative allies and use state violence and paramilitary followers to go after their opponents
Reading academic research about what makes music swing and some of the stuff is cringeworthy but there are some good observations in a couple studies too, like how laying back but staying in time or why it actually works when you even out 8ths when the feel is definitely swung
One of the neatest I found is how there ends up being a specific order of what beats are loose and what are always together that probably makes a bigger difference in whether something swings or not than anything else and explains why I’ve heard recordings of classical music that swing with even 8ths and everything
(Down beats are loose, back beats are tighter, offbeats are always together)
White supremacist music theory to go with the white supremacy culture that permeates music schools.
I wonder if the lick being used to explain Jolopov’s theoretical system was chosen because it’s an exemplar of how the gentrification of jazz has mostly killed it
Also it’s not explicit in the video but most anti-jazz sentiment is based on anti-black racism
