The world kept threatening to fall apart but never did, but we convinced ourselves that it’s irrevocably broken, which is just as bad, perhaps worse. What if it’s all a terrible illusion? What if this is all a downward-spiraling illusion we’ve conjured around ourselves together? An illusion that is formed by the culture that describes it. An illusion we’ve forgotten we made and now mistake for reality.

Gut instinct is something to be honored. Practice listening closely to it a lot more because it’ll tell you exactly what you need. If you’re pulled to do something, fascinated by something, you should probably follow your inclination toward it.

What AI image generators give us back, is what’s at the limits of our own imagination because it’s using and reflecting back the output of our own creativity. When we say ‘future’, our prompts are reflecting back a form of our own futurism, which is limited in scope. Image generators make you commit.

Headlessness is a new model for products and services brands made exclusively possible because of distributed cryptonetworks. Decentralized branding is facilitated by users truly empowered to create their own narrative, and incentivized to spread it.

Bitcoin is what we're terming a headless brand. All subsequent brand collateral — visual assets, messaging, positioning and more — have been created by groups of community stakeholders. While Bitcoin's core contributors have had an influence on the Bitcoin narrative, there are millions of other stakeholders, many of whom have meaningfully contributed to its brand.

Of course, wise people learn from the experiences of others but Russian businesses have been using best practices as shortcuts to avoid doing the hard thinking about what they should do next. Copying form without understanding substance is a trap that many who imitate best practices fall into.

Balming Tiger suggest an entirely new vision and sound, and challenge the dolled up, machinated image that is demanded of Korean artists. More than a music collective they are a platform of expression, with hopes to expand their representation to larger Asia.
