The Long Read

Post by Brian Peacock » Mon Sep 10, 2018 9:20 am

We all like a quick snack dont we, but for a balanced diet we also need something more substantial. Post those longer articles, polemics, and analyses here.

To get the ball rolling some interesting testimony from professionals who have to make the right decision quickly and under pressure.

Don’t panic! Meet the experts with a steady hand when catastrophe strikes.

“BRAAAM!”: The Sound that Invaded the Hollywood Soundtrack
How Inception changed the way we listen to movies




The internet and the sound’s creator refer to it as BRAAAM. (If you think you’ve successfully avoided it, here’s a sample). It may sound synthetic, but it’s usually produced with brass instruments and a prepared piano. Although it has its roots in a scoring style composer Hans Zimmer employed for much of the early ’00s, the BRAAAM heard in seemingly every trailer was first recorded for Christopher Nolan’s 2010 film Inception, and has been adapted, copied, and even outright sampled ever since. Is BRAAAM something that happened to us, or is it something we, as moviegoers, desired?...

The new left economics: how a network of thinkers is transforming capitalism
For almost half a century, something vital has been missing from leftwing politics in western countries. Since the 70s, the left has changed how many people think about prejudice, personal identity and freedom. It has exposed capitalism’s cruelties. It has sometimes won elections, and sometimes governed effectively afterwards. But it has not been able to change fundamentally how wealth and work function in society – or even provide a compelling vision of how that might be done. The left, in short, has not had an economic policy.

Instead, the right has had one. Privatisation, deregulation, lower taxes for business and the rich, more power for employers and shareholders, less power for workers – these interlocking policies have intensified capitalism, and made it ever more ubiquitous. There have been immense efforts to make capitalism appear inevitable; to depict any alternative as impossible...
