"Cocaine spoon"

She finds damaged people… a ho know another ho, a lawyer know another lawyer, a crack kid know another crack kid. It was just there: the connection, the energy. People know people. We knew each other.
— Osarieme Obaseki talking about Charity Johnson, a 34 year old woman who was living as a teenager in Texas for 20 years.

Radius presents a public exhibition of Jason Soliday’s Infinite Radius, a permutation of Episode 30: J. Soliday at the Propeller Fund Space at Mana Contemporary.
For the Infinite Radius installation, Soliday’s original thirteen Radial Variations recordings have been added to The Infinite Jukebox, an online tool which divides each track into beats and then analyzes each beat according to pitch, timbre, loudness, duration, and position. During playback as each beat is played, there is a chance that The Infinite Jukebox will jump to a different beat that sounds similar to the one played, continuing this cycle infinitely for as long as the Jukebox is allowed to play. Through this process of remixing with The Infinite Jukebox, yet another set of Radial Variations have been generated. Within the installation of Infinite Radius, multiple Infinite Radius mixes will be played back simultaneously through several stereo audio systems arranged in an overlapping pattern in the Propeller space, effectively remixing the Radial Variations pieces both spatially and chronologically.

September 4 - 30, 2014Opening Reception: Friday, September 12 at 7pm CST

And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

It’s cool when a boring thing you are not embarrassed to tell people you do gets certified as exclusive and elite as hell.

In 129 years since police and fire commissions were created in the state of Wisconsin, we could not find a single ruling by a police department, an inquest or a police commission that a shooting was unjustified.

Mother Jones senior editor, Dave Gilson, joined the Morning AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to discuss a story he published last month about the life of Roert Dowlut, general consul for the the NRA. Dowlut was convicted of murder in South Bend, IN in 1964 but was released 6 years later after an appeal and Supreme Court decisions had his case overturned due to police missteps including denying him the right to see a lawyer. Gilson tells us the tale and about the fallout from his reporting. Take a listen!
