Cold War 2: Electric Boogaloo
wa11heaven posted a topic in General Banterhttp://abcnews.go.com/International/russian-television-warns-nuclear-war-amid-us-tensions/story?id=42773541 And countless others from the past few weeks, probably more from the coming weeks. Currently on DEFCON 3 as we speak. EDIT: "It’s not a new Cold War. It’s not even a deep chill. It’s an outright conflict." So what do you think is going to happen?
Atomic (BBC documentary)
Leon Sumbitches posted a topic in General BanterJust watched this, it's IDM as fuck and well worth a watch: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b065y1dx/storyville-20142015-27-atomic-living-in-dread-and-promise It's a documentary about the atomic era made entirely of archive footage with no narrator as such, and a quality soundtrack by Mogwai. Really bleak and frightening, kind of beautiful in places too. A couple of images stuck with me- especially the scenes of a British family preparing for a nuclear attack (taken, I think, from the fictional The War Game film from 1965). Fill the bath, brick up your windows, get a bucket and some Jeyes fluid for pissing/shitting. So bleak. That, and the hopelessly inadequate radiation protection given to the guys clearing up the Chernobyl reactor in the hours/days after the disaster- pretty much a leather apron and a gas mask. Hopeless. Anyway thought I'd post it here in case anyone else digs it, it's quality gear.
Nukes Nightmare on Nuke Street
Joyrex posted a topic in General Banterhttp://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2012/10/30/nightmare_on_nuke_street?page=full This "magazine" seems a bit crackpot and tinfoil hat to me at first glance, but still an interesting read.
