70th Anniversary of Warsaw Uprising. We remember.

A little context for those who don’t know….
On August 1, 1944 the poorly armed Polish Home Army rose up against the Nazis and reclaimed Warsaw.  With almost no help from the Allied Powers, they held the city for sixty three days before they were forced to surrender.  After the Nazis recaptured Warsaw, they razed the city and deported the entire civilian population.  Most of the civilian population was released, but a significant minority was deported to the death camps.  
The art above is a reinterpretation of one of the most iconic images of the Warsaw Uprising- Eugeniusza Lokajskiego’s photo of Różyczka Goździewska (d. 1989), a little girl who volunteered at a Warsaw field hospital.  
The Warsaw Uprising is not the same thing as the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.  The Warsaw Ghetto uprising took place in 1943, not 1944.

"Stranded on the Moon, High on Blur, and Watching World War 3 Destroy the Earth"
Funding for the International Moon Base had hit an all-time low. 
Though it was long his childhood dream to live upon the moon, the missions have become longer, rations and supplies scarcer, and a quirk in the rotations schedule has left him alone upon the moon for the last 8 months.  
He’s now nothing more than a glorified caretaker of an expensive relic that no one wants to pay for.
To pass the time, he has developed a strong addiction to “Blur”— an opiate-like hallucinogen administered through an eye dropper that creates warm soothing visions for hours a dose. 
He rationalizes his addiction by telling himself that the drug causes him to breathe less of the air supply, and eat less food… which are both true, but only helps obscure the lie. 
Month after month, the scheduled date to bring him back to Earth is pushed out further into the future as a tense political climate back home has made him a low priority.  8 months in solitude on the moon become 12, and then 16.  In month 18, World War 3 erupts across the globe.
He watches the bombs destroy everything he once loved all through the blissful haze of Blur induced visions.  The indescribable mix of sheer horror and pleasure will haunt him for the rest of his days. 
By month 34, he is the last human in the galaxy.

Here’s another track that was heavily inspired by the music from Hotline Miami and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. This is called We need a plan. This one is slower and more thoughtful. John Carpenter would be proud. Enjoy!
