"Oblivion" by Katie and Allison Crutchfield // Originally by Grimes

I’ve spent many hours of this year listening to the works of Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee) and as luck would have it, there seems to be no shortage of her brand of excellence. Here, collaborating with her sister, Allison Crutchfield, she takes “Oblivion” by Grimes and shifts it from an ethereal electro pop number into a jangly, garage rock jam with killer harmonies and a driving beat. The whole spectacular thing is part of Rookie Magazine's May “Theme Song”, so be sure to check them out for future theme song goodness.

Trevor Paglen - They Watch the Moon (2010)

"This photograph depicts a classified ‘listening station’ deep in the forests of West Virginia.

The station is located at the center of the National Radio Quiet Zone, a region of approximately 34,000 square kilometers in West Virginia and parts of Maryland.

Within the Quiet Zone, radio transmissions are severely restricted: omnidirectional and high-powered transmissions (such as wireless internet devices and FM radio stations) are not permitted.

The listening station, which forms part of the global ECHELON system, was designed in part to take advantage of a phenomenon called moonbounce.

Moonbounce involves capturing communications and telemetry signals from around the world as they escape into space, hit the moon, and are reflected back towards Earth.

The photograph is a long exposure under the full moon light.”
