show #236

tim maughan is a british-born author, journalist & artist, now based in canada,  and he penned a powerful debut novel with “infinite detail”. drax is obsessed with the ar/vr component of it and the deep questions about surveillance capitalism, classism, urban gentrification & art/music as savior of humanity are just icing[s] on the cake. want to be “woke” my friends? read this one and listen to the show where less than 5 min in mr. maughan calls the boy genius behind the oculus rift goggles a [expletive] fascist. now this is the kind of discourse we need more often! enjoy:

and now read and watch on my friends. but not before that you better order tim’s book!

    You should have shown Tim my Music Setup at the Harvest Park. He would have loved the VR Looper and Mixer.
