In honour of our elders, Vancouver hip-hop duo Mob Bouncerecorded this track with youth at the Houston Friendship Centre. 

“This is for the Elders who carry such vibrant spirits. You teach us to slow down and enjoy and be thankful for all that exists around us,” says Mob Bounce of their recent track Oral Tradition. “May your vibrations be so kind to the elders that live in our communities. They have valuable stories for us. We must listen.”

As for the next generation who were involved in making this music at the Houston Friendship Centre, “we give them love for being such an inspiration to the music and creative energy. ”

So listen up, give love, and keep your ear to the ground – word has it Mob Bounce is in the studio on their next project.

If swiddening and dispersal are subsistence strategies that impede appropriation; if social fragmentation and acephaly hinder state incorporation; then, by the same token, the absence of writing and texts provides a freedom of maneuver in history, genealogy, and legibility that frustrates state routines. If swiddening and egalitarian, mobile settlement represent elusive “jellyfish” economic and social forms, orality may be seen as a similarly fugitive jellyfish variant of culture. On this reading, orality may in many cases be a “positionality” vis-à-vis state formation and state power. Just as agriculture and residence practices may oscillate over long periods to reflect a strategic positioning, so may literacy and texts be taken up, then set aside, then taken up again for similar reasons.

The Great Pyramid of Giza was built using over 2 million hetrogeneous blocks of granite stone, each weighing as much as a car. Making the blocks hetrogeneous (meaning each block is of a slightly different shape and size) is incomprehensibly more difficult then making them homogenous (same shape and size). Not only are the blocks hetrogeneous but they are stacked to create an angle of 52 degrees. 45 degrees would have been much easier, but 52 degrees is necessary if you want your pyramid to include Pi and the golden ratio. Hetrogeneous blocks would be necessary to make your pyramid earthquake-proof.
