Re: Santiago under curfew

We fucking won: 79% vs 21%. The option to NOT scrap the constitution only won in 3 communes, the exact communes where everyone knows the power is concentrated. The wealthiest communes by far, where everyone from the top 0.01% lives. It's amazing. It's a small step for this young country, but a very ...

Re: Santiago under curfew

Went to vote, and it was beautiful.

Early reports suggest that the turnout is going to be ridiculously high.

We already have the referendum results for New Zealand, Australia and Japan, with an 87%+ result for a New Constitution.

Re: Santiago under curfew

There are two options: “constitutional convention” or “mixed council.” A constitutional convention would mean that there would be a specific election to pick these representatives. Quotas are still being discussed, but a gender quota and a native people’s quotas are expected to pass. Basically, anyo...

Re: Santiago under curfew

In other news, in about 40 days we will vote as to whether we want a new constitution (this vote is predicted to be a landslide for YES) and whether we want it to be written by politicians + a group of elected or only by elected representatives. After having this referendum postponed due to covid-1...

Re: What made your day today?

You people have really big fucking houses! We recently bought a flat of our own here in Santiago. We are currently repairing it, as the previous owners rented it to some really disgusting people. Hopefully, we'll move around January 2021. It's in a nice part of town and one of the good things is tha...

Re: Covid19 Positive

I was in Turkey :hs: vacation???? Yeah! We went for about two weeks and visited Istanbul, Pamukkale and Urfa (so we could visit Gobekli Tepe.) It was really, really good. So much better than what I expected. I think it was the first time that I visited a place that much different from what I’m used...

Traffik Island - Possible sample of Dave's version of "The Bed"?

Have a listen to the beginning of this:




And here's Dave's 'The Bed:'



I'd be 99% positive that it's a sample. What do you think?

By the way, anybody knows Traffik Island? It just popped up on my Spotify out of nowhere.

Re: New sound: Delicious Grace

As an experiment in style, it’s alright.

The singer must be banished from the continent. He hasn’t got ONE talent and should be nowhere near this project.

Re: Can anybody upload the Deconstruction album?

Thank you! I remember chatting via ICQ with one member of the JA community back in the day, possibly around 1998-2000... I can't remember who it was, it could've easily been Creep or Hoka. Anyway, I was in my sort of early stages of loving Jane's, and they hit me with Big Sur and then Iris, and it o...

Can anybody upload the Deconstruction album?

Please! My CD is in storage and I don't even have a CD-enabled device anyway...

I haven't listened to it properly in ages (only through YouTube) and I'd really like to have it back. I deleted it by mistake from my phone.

Thanks in advance :nyrexall:

He actually looks beautiful, and makes me doubt a little whether that's a candid picture or not.

Re: The glitz: the glamour

4 versions of "Let's All Pray for This World", a song that has been played less than 8,000 times on YouTube.

On the other hand, it's 69 songs (I'm sure that's not a coincidence) for $300! So only $4.3 per song. What kind of skinflint wouldn't splash money on this?

Re: JA Vinyl/CD - ALL Out of Print

The most likely answer, in all honesty, is that there aren’t any hints out there of a real demand for Jane’s physical media. We joke about it and all, but it’s pretty much just us as longtime ‘fans’ of the band. And most fans already have their CDs and/or simply use Spotify. If they printed Ritual a...

Re: Santiago under curfew

Today, it was revealed that during the first two weeks of last year’s protests, the police shot over 104,000 rounds with their shotguns (each round containing 12 pellets, if that’s the right name).

Crazy.
