Despite the steady hue and cry by government agencies about the need for more police, more sophisticated weaponry, and the difficulties of preserving the peace and maintaining security in our modern age, the reality is far different. Indeed, violent crime in America has been on a steady decline, and if current trends continue, Americans will finish the year 2013 experiencing the lowest murder rate in over a century.
Despite this clear referendum on the fact that communities would be better served by smaller, demilitarized police forces, police agencies throughout the country are dramatically increasing in size and scope. Some of the nation’s larger cities boast police forces the size of small armies. (New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg actually likes to brag that the NYPD is his personal army.) For example, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has reached a total of 10,000 officers. It takes its place alongside other cities boasting increasingly large police forces, including New York (36,000 officers) and Chicago (13,400 officers). When considered in terms of cops per square mile, Los Angeles assigns a whopping 469 officers per square mile, followed by New York with 303 officers per square mile, and Chicago with 227 cops per square mile.

The MOB were more than just a band in the 80′s. They were a state of mind that made me see the world in a different way. Musically, they created melodies that have stuck with me for a lifetime! Today CVLT Nation is sharing with the world a spot on live set from The MOB recorded on 10/16/81 in Holland. You can find the stream and download below. So many of the things that this band was fighting against still ring true today! NO DOVES FLY HERE!

Lots of people doodle when they’re bored, but Tokyo resident Cho, who’s only 19 years old, draws pictures on her own skin. This habit eventually led to a rather strange portfolio of different work – like this face with an extra pair of eyes, which is fascinating but hard to focus on, plus a little unsettling.

A year ago I told The Impossible project I’d do a review of their film for a blog I have. They sent me four packs of film to test out. On Halloween while hanging out at a friends house we decided to take some drunken Halloween pics with the Polaroid film. My friends house has what we call the doom room. Its a tiny basement room that is dank/dark as fuck. When they moved in they found a bunch of Tarot cards shoved into the cracks of the walls and ceiling of the doom room. This is taken in the doom room with Polaroid 600 film.
