“It’s like Black Mirror, but a podcast”.

If you are tired of the one-sided melancholy of hygge-filled tech life, here is your recipe for a disaster. In “Always now and yet again” our hosts Felix and Aleksey (and a bunch of invited guests) explore the underbelly, the machinery, the debauchery, love and frazzled hopes that technology, design and culture create, destroy and fascinate us with.

A cultural movement to explore the shadow side, reflections on the millennial experience, in thrall to the weird, repulsive and slightly wrong that tech creates. With beard scratching, heated discussions and high heels.

Here as a podcast. Even more ever under construction at www.seattlemelancholy.com

    Anthropocene, outlook for 2020 or how Russian propaganda works

    Anthropocene, outlook for 2020 or how Russian propaganda works

    The human age, the belle époque, the glided age, the 90s, the return of the sex, the cellophane culture, the faceless societies, the Russians, the biases, and the fallacies. And yes, we don't do good grammar, but we do Oxford commas (when we can). In this episode Felix and Aleksey continue thinking about the end of 2010s, discussing things behind, and things ahead.

    The end of the beginning or the beginning of the end

    The end of the beginning or the beginning of the end

    As the last decade of 2010s begins, Felix and Aleksey reflect on 2018 and make their lists. The best, the worst, and the macabre. All together in a single form. Impossible to distinguish one from another. From Parkland shooting to Facebook, from Fox News to Plastic straw bans, from Star Wars to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. The undecidables, the naive, and the opinionated come together in this glimpse-at-their-lives issue. Tune in for 2018 at a glimpse in this regular mix of the banal and the insightful. And yes, we know, almost everyone made their lists in December and has already moved on. But since we are at the forefront of progress here -January is the time. Bear with us. Or not. As always, you have no choice.

    Three questions to the XXI century

    Three questions to the XXI century

    In this final episode of 2018 Felix and Aleksey pose 3 key questions to the XXI century. What is us if not our bodies? How can we co-exist with people who are different from us? And most important of all - what is the way to live in a sustainable manner? Colonialism, eurocentrism, tech obsession, politics, 90s, past and family bonds make the gist of this season finale. What is government in the XXI century? What can we learn from denazification of Germany? Why hackathons are our biggest hope? As Aleksey contemplates running for the president of Russia in 2024, we finish the year with questions, answers and a little bit of Jurassic Park. Scary in the dark. I'm so scared that I'll be eaten.

    Bi-directional relationships

    Bi-directional relationships

    What happens in between the claps? Aleksey goes to Hawaii to get discouraged by colonialism. Felix attempts a change of bi-directional relationships. What is life if not consumption? What is media if not manipulation? America’s public spaces. Hula dances, Halibut, SPAs. Candies from strangers. The unbearable lightnesss of being. Binary choices. State executives. If you are still out there, listen to Felix making a passionate ask of you in the very end. We’d love to have you. This public broadcast was paid by tax money.
