A young Pakistani musician treats the guitar as percussion — with surprisingly shimmering results.
Watch Usman Riaz play NPR’s Tiny Desk. 

He learned how to do this by watching YouTube videos!!!!

But it was also clear that an all-round increase in wealth threatened the destruction — indeed, in some sense was the destruction — of a hierarchical society. In a world in which everyone worked short hours, had enough to eat, lived in a house with a bathroom and a refrigerator, and possessed a motor-car or even an aeroplane, the most obvious and perhaps the most important form of inequality would already have disappeared. If it once became general, wealth would confer no distinction. It was possible, no doubt, to imagine a society in which WEALTH, in the sense of personal possessions and luxuries, should be evenly distributed, while POWER remained in the hands of a small privileged caste. But in practice such a society could not long remain stable. For if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realize that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance.

Band Responds in the Worst Way Possible After Stealing Photographer’s Work
Petapixel has a writeup of the reddit thread about that “Band posts image to Instagram w/o credit” thing the other day.
First: interesting to see that photographers’ views on Instagram still seem to be in the “this isn’t photography” camp. Cropping for square and adding a filter constitutes a material change:

"But given that the photo had been altered, the watermark cropped out and the quality degraded, he requested via email that the band take the photo down or pay to use it."

Second: people (in this case, the band) still have no clue on how copyright works. Finding an image on the internet does not make it “public domain.” There is no “credit to whoever made this.”

"You have no legal claim as the photo is credited and is not posted for a monetary gain and features our likeness and image not yours. Also you have just got your self banned from any festival or show we ever play again in that region for life! Congrats!"
