Listening to the politicians and journalists talk a loftily, from afar, an Olympian perspective a coronavirus can feel like a mathematical abstraction, an intellectual exercise played out in curves and peaks and troughs and modelling.

Music venues are where British culture is born. It's Britain's duty to keep them alive | Tony Naylor

Itas in no oneas interest for a billion-pound industry to fail a so why does the new culture taskforce hit all the wrong notes?

If British music has a soul, it resides in small venues. In hundreds of pub backrooms, grotty gig venues, DIY spaces and sweat-soaked basement clubs where lives are changed and, occasionally, history made. Alongside more established mid-sized venues, these places are talent incubators, providers of joy and a significant source of economic activity. More important, they also crystallise, if not trigger, profound cultural shifts a and have for almost 70 years.

From the Beatles at the Cavern or the Sex Pistols at the 100 Club, to dubstep focal point FWD at Londonas Plastic People (RIP), or Optimoas legendary Sunday nights at Glasgowas Sub Club, we live atop a thriving, ever-mutating underground that shapes how the UK looks, sounds and is. That underground influences not just what you hear on Radio 1 and high-street fashion but a certainly until 2016 a it helped fuel the slow, undeniable rise of a more socially progressive Britain. From hardcore punk gigs to LGBTQ+ all nighters, spilling out of the communion of the moshpit or dancefloor flows a more freethinking and tolerant society.

For the Bridesmaids star, playing Gloria Steinem in her 1970s battle for womenas rights has been a reminder that the same arguments are raging today

A few days before New York locked down and Broadway closed indefinitely, Rose Byrne was on stage in Brooklyn, doing Medea. It was a sold-out run, co-starring her husband, Bobby Cannavale, in an updated version of the Euripides classic. Already, in that first week of March, people were starting to not show up, and those who did were in an odd mood. aThere was something subdued about the audience,a says Byrne. aI mean, itas Medea a and not Tyler Perryas version a so itas not full of laughs.a Still, she says, athe last week was strange. You could feel a tension.a The show closed on 8 March, one of the few in the city to finish its run. Four days later, the theatres went dark.

Since then, the 40-year-old actor, along with Cannavale and their two kids, both under five, have been in their home in Brooklyn. Byrne peers into the camera from a dimly lit room in her house, hair tied up in a wrap that conceals what she says is the crash in personal grooming. There is, in these times, nothing so endearing to other New Yorkers as the New Yorker of means who, at the first sign of the pandemic, didnat clear off to their house in the country. aWeave taken some weekend trips here and there,a says Byrne, abut otherwise weare holding tight and waiting to seea| a She trails off.

'Things fall apart': the apocalyptic appeal of WB Yeats's The Second Coming
Date: Sat, 30 May 2020 10:00:41 GMT
From https:

Written 100 years ago, Yeatsas poem has been absorbed into the cultural bloodstream from Chinua Achebe to The Sopranos, Joan Didion to Gordon Gecko. Why is it such a touchstone in times of chaos?

In April 1936, three years before his death, WB Yeats received a letter from the writer and activist Ethel Mannin. The 70-year-old Yeats was a Nobel prize-winning poet of immense stature and influence, not to mention Manninas former lover, and she asked him to join a campaign to free a German pacifist incarcerated by the Nazis. Yeats responded instead with a reading recommendation: aIf you have my poems by you, look up a poem called aThe Second Cominga,a he wrote. aIt was written some sixteen or seventeen years ago & foretold what is happening. I have written of the same thing again & again since. This will seem little to you with your strong practical sense for it takes fifty years for a poetas weapons to influence the issue.a

Yeats was justified in taking the long view. Written in 1919 and published in 1920, aThe Second Cominga has become perhaps the most plundered poem in the English language. At 164 words, it is short and memorable enough to be famous in toto but it has also been disassembled into its constituent parts by books, albums, movies, TV shows, comic books, computer games, political speeches and newspaper editorials. While many poems in Yeatsas corpus have contributed indelible lines to the storehouse of the cultural imagination (ano country for old mena; athe foul rag and bone shop of the hearta), aThe Second Cominga consists of almost nothing but such lines. Someone reading it for the first time in 2020 might resemble the apocryphal theatregoer who complained that Hamlet was nothing but a bunch of quotations strung together.

The designer, 43, on his heritage, twin sister, belief in beauty and why he never cries at films

Time is very weird at the moment. Itas elastic, but in terms of creativity I am always as much about the here and now as about looking at art and things from the past. I love both.

As a child in the suburbs, I tried to avoid anything that was team-related. I had a very brief career, from the age of eight, on a football team, and I tried ice hockey. My father dreamed I might be the first half-Turkish hockey pro. It came to nothing. I spent most of my time drawing and daydreaming.

England's long list leaves those who failed to make cut beyond consolation | Vic Marks

Any player not included in the 55-man group named by selectors has little hope of an international future

There must be some grumpy English professional cricketers out there this weekend. Let me try to bowdlerise their thoughts: aOur wise selectors have plucked out 55 players for training ahead of the proposed international matches this summer and I do not appear to be among them. Fifty-five represents no fewer than five cricket teams so this is a source of some disappointment since I thought that I might still have the chance of the ultimate honour, playing for my country, in the foreseeable future. This now seems a rather distant dream. So itas back to the nets, whenever that is allowed for the journeymen dirt-trackers. Que sera, sera.a The unbowdlerised version probably would not take so long and it might sully your morning.

Most of the names on the longest list ever produced by the England selectors are predictable and by and large they come from the obvious sources. No one employed by Derbyshire, Glamorgan, Leicestershire and (promoted) Northamptonshire has been selected; Surrey provide the most players with nine (they signed Reece Topley in the winter); there are seven from Lancashire and six from Yorkshire and Somerset. One oddity is that Essex, the county champions in two of the past three years, have just one player selected, Dan Lawrence.

Burnleyas goalkeeper on his lower-league journey, learning not to fear mistakes and his desire to dislodge Jordan Pickford

The goalkeeperas lot is the peculiarity that hides in plain sight. They train alone most of the time, their technical and fitness work being entirely bespoke, and, come match day, it is preferable that they see as little of the ball as possible. Their view of the pitch is different, fixed and detached a everything feels different a and, for them, the game is as much psychological as physical, the ultimate test of focus.

Nick Pope uses words such as asingulara and aindividuala. The Burnley and England goalkeeper remembers how as a young player, he had no teammate to talk him through matches, to offer positional tips. You are on your own between the sticks and the deal can seem thankless, unbalanced; one in which reliability, even excellence, is taken for granted and single mistakes tarnish reputations.

China has effectively torn up the treaty it signed with the Thatcher government a yet the UKas response is feeble

To understand how wide Beijing now casts its security net in Hong Kong, consider the case of Martin Lee. Now in his 80s, Lee is a distinguished barrister, a politician and a lifelong defender of civil liberties. He has never committed an act of violence or advocated that others do so.

Last month, in an early sign of what was coming, Lee was arrested at his home. Fourteen other prominent Hong Kong citizens were taken into custody that day and charged with taking part in illegal demonstrations. He has pointed out that he was already facing 14 similar charges in mainland China, and had the extradition law that triggered last yearas protests in Hong Kong been adopted he could have been sent for trial in China under a system that not even the Chinese Communist partyas (CCP) most generous supporters could describe as adequate. The CCP regards rule of law and separation of powers as threats to its power. Law, for the party, is one instrument among many that can be used to eliminate opponents a who can be anyone from dissenting public intellectuals to prominent businessmen.

Itas Terminaas terrifying moon that everyone remembers. Its grimacing, red-eyed stare looms large in the memory, summoning anxious recollections of hours spent watching its terrifying visage inch ever closer to the earth, of time slipping away.

Majoraas Mask recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. Sequel to the groundbreaking The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, it was released in April 2000, only 16 months after Ocarinaas initial release. Much has been written about the motivations behind the gameas unusually speedy development, not all of it in agreement, but an interesting consequence of this abbreviated production is that instead of producing new 3D models for the game, the developers reused the game engine and graphics from Ocarina. This gives Majoraas Mask an uncanny mirror-world quality that enhances its themes of isolation, identity and transformation.

Former members of Minor Threat, Fugazi and the Evens deliver a bracing blast of moral, melodic US punk

Itas difficult to overstate the significance of Fugazi. An American art-rock institution, they provided a slinky, authoritative moral racket from the late 80s until the early 00s. Ever since this totemic post-hardcore band went on indefinite hiatus back in 2003, there have been calls for them to reform. They show no signs of doing that.

Analogues exist. Contemporary punk outfits such as Bristol punk heroes Idles are, consciously or not, made in Fugazias image: aggressive in sound, but communitarian in ethos, and constantly querying the testosterone lunacy that comes with the punk tag. Now, there is Coriky, a band made up of Fugazias singing guitarist Ian MacKaye and bassist Joe Lally, with the addition of singing drummer Amy Farina.

Rose Byrne: aYou understand why feminists are furious a weare still talking about this?a

From https:

For the Bridesmaids star, playing Gloria Steinem in her 1970s battle for womenas rights has been a reminder that the same arguments are raging today

A few days before New York locked down and Broadway closed indefinitely, Rose Byrne was on stage in Brooklyn, doing Medea. It was a sold-out run, co-starring her husband, Bobby Cannavale, in an updated version of the Euripides classic. Already, in that first week of March, people were starting to not show up, and those who did were in an odd mood. aThere was something subdued about the audience,a says Byrne. aI mean, itas Medea a and not Tyler Perryas version a so itas not full of laughs.a Still, she says, athe last week was strange. You could feel a tension.a The show closed on 8 March, one of the few in the city to finish its run. Four days later, the theatres went dark.

Since then, the 40-year-old actor, along with Cannavale and their two kids, both under five, have been in their home in Brooklyn. Byrne peers into the camera from a dimly lit room in her house, hair tied up in a wrap that conceals what she says is the crash in personal grooming. There is, in these times, nothing so endearing to other New Yorkers as the New Yorker of means who, at the first sign of the pandemic, didnat clear off to their house in the country. aWeave taken some weekend trips here and there,a says Byrne, abut otherwise weare holding tight and waiting to seea| a She trails off.

Only if the screams and tears and protests shake the very conscience of this nation can we hope for a better society on the other side of this

No one wants to see their community burn. But the fires burning in Minneapolis, just like the fire burning in the spirits of so many marginalized Americans today, are a natural response to the trauma black communities have experienced, generation after generation.

No one wants the fires a even activists on the ground have said this. But they have also shared how their non-violent pleas and protests have gone unnoticed for years as the situation has gotten out of hand. No one knows who and what is behind the violence, but we do know that countless activists, grassroots leaders and preachers were screaming non-violently long before now: aChange, America! Change, Minneapolis!a Rather than listen, many of those in power saw even their non-violent protest as an unwelcome development.

'Things fall apart': the apocalyptic appeal of WB Yeats's The Second Coming
Date: Sat, 30 May 2020 10:00:41 GMT
From https:

Written 100 years ago, Yeatsas poem has been absorbed into the cultural bloodstream from Chinua Achebe to The Sopranos, Joan Didion to Gordon Gecko. Why is it such a touchstone in times of chaos?

In April 1936, three years before his death, WB Yeats received a letter from the writer and activist Ethel Mannin. The 70-year-old Yeats was a Nobel prize-winning poet of immense stature and influence, not to mention Manninas former lover, and she asked him to join a campaign to free a German pacifist incarcerated by the Nazis. Yeats responded instead with a reading recommendation: aIf you have my poems by you, look up a poem called aThe Second Cominga,a he wrote. aIt was written some sixteen or seventeen years ago & foretold what is happening. I have written of the same thing again & again since. This will seem little to you with your strong practical sense for it takes fifty years for a poetas weapons to influence the issue.a

Yeats was justified in taking the long view. Written in 1919 and published in 1920, aThe Second Cominga has become perhaps the most plundered poem in the English language. At 164 words, it is short and memorable enough to be famous in toto but it has also been disassembled into its constituent parts by books, albums, movies, TV shows, comic books, computer games, political speeches and newspaper editorials. While many poems in Yeatsas corpus have contributed indelible lines to the storehouse of the cultural imagination (ano country for old mena; athe foul rag and bone shop of the hearta), aThe Second Cominga consists of almost nothing but such lines. Someone reading it for the first time in 2020 might resemble the apocryphal theatregoer who complained that Hamlet was nothing but a bunch of quotations strung together. Whether or not it is Yeatsas greatest poem, it is by far his most useful. As Auden wrote in aIn Memory of WB Yeatsa (1939), aThe words of a dead man / Are modified in the guts of the living.a
