Song of the Day: “Spider Toupet” by Port-Royal

“Spider Toupet” by Port-Royal from Tympanik Audio‘s Emerging Organisms vol. 4 compilation album.

I’ve been thinking about this video for days. It felt like something lifted out of a fairy tale but really, this idea is so rich and so true that it’s been told again and again. I can’t help but think it has a special relevance for us as we enter the post-scarcity economy, at least n the digital sense. There is so much free media (music, literature, movies, etc) out there that it devalues itself. I’m sure we’ll reach equilibrium at some point but in the here and now it’s unsettling and unsatisfying.
