Father John Misty Shares New Music Video “Pure Comedy” In Seemingly Perfect Timing

first_imgFather John Misty is a man of simple taste and robust opinion. Known for writing ballads relevant to the present moment, he announces his newest record Pure Comedy in seemingly perfect timing. The topics of choice are clearly defined in the title track, shared below, which explores societal trends, technological obsessions, popular dependencies, and the overall state of humanity across the human lifespan.He describes this new track as a lengthy dissection of “the comedy of man”. While the images in the video seem more specific than the lyrics of the song, he tells NPR, “There’s nothing political about ‘Pure Comedy.’ Unless that’s what the viewer wants, even with all the gratuitous footage of political figures. The video is only ‘about Trump’ in that the video is about human beings.”Images of Trump, Obama, Kanye West, and Pepe the Frog are all characters of the animated depiction. The song also appears to address relevant topics like big pharma, global warming, and natural disasters, as well as societal obsessions like religion, gluttony, and general foolishness.Pure Comedy comes out April 7, but you can listen to the title track below:Josh Tillman teamed up with Jonathon Wilson to produce the 75-minute record, which you can learn more about in the 25-minute documentary film below:You can also see the new album’s artwork, in GIF form, below:last_img read more

DOC to Oversee Trianel Windpark Borkum II Cabling

first_imgDeutsche Offshore Consult (DOC) will begin construction supervision for the inner-array cable installation at the North Sea wind farm Trianel Windpark Borkum II. Twelve to fourteen representatives with experience in offshore wind will be deployed at the end of August, for the project to provide the best possible support for the customer during cable laying, pull-in and termination & testing at the communal offshore wind farm.Thirty-two Senvion 6.2 M152 offshore wind turbines, each with an output of 6.33 MW, will be installed at Trianel Windpark Borkum II. The wind farm is located approximately 45 kilometres north of the island of Borkum and will have an output of 200 MW. The first phase of Trianel Windpark Borkum with 40 wind turbines and an output of 200 MW has been in operation since summer 2015.DOC’s current task of supervising the construction works at TWB II with a focus on the inner-array cable installation will start with cable loading and the necessary preparatory work for the cable pull-ins at the substation as well as on board the cable laying vessel Seaway Aimery. The subsequent cable laying and burial works will then be carried out by Seaway Aimery and Seaway Moxie. The cabling consists of a total of four loops. The inner array cables are magnetised so that they can still be located once they have been laid and buried.Quality assurance and communication with the project office on land are also part of DOC’s work package. Installation and commissioning of the wind turbines at TWB II is scheduled to be completed by the autumn of 2019.“Supervision of cable production and wind farm cable installations is one of DOC’s core competencies, and we are happy that the joint venture Trianel Windkraftwerk Borkum II selected us for this task,” said Oliver Spalthoff, Managing Director of Deutsche Offshore Consult.Irina Lucke, technical director of Trianel Windkraftwerk Borkum II, said: “The inner-array cabling is the nerve system of the wind farm. A high level of competence and excellent quality assurance is crucial. We are pleased to have DOC by our side as a reliable and highly specialised project partner.”last_img read more
