17 Jun 10:18am War at home: how Big Little Lies deftly dissects domestic violence
The Guardian
In the second season of the HBO drama, a nuanced depiction of surviving a violent marriage artfully evokes a form of PTSD Big Little Lies is a beautiful show about ugly secrets. Based on the novel by Liane Moriarty, the show centers around the lives of five very different women in Monterey, California, who are connected through a murder. Since its first season, the show has been celebrated for its gorgeous cinematography, deft storytelling and excellent acting. Though the show explores many forms of deception, from white lies to infidelity, its nuanced look at the ways that domestic violence can remain hidden from public view is one of the series’ most important additions to the cultural conversation.

17 Jun 1:00am Not OK, computer: how it feels to have your music leaked
The Guardian
When Radiohead were held to ransom by hackers, they shrugged and put 18 hours of unheard material online for free. But for other artists, having music leaked can be devastating In 1997, Radiohead imagined a future in which technological dependency and out-of-control consumerism had merged to form a dark, digital void.

The digital advances promising to bring us together, it seemed to warn, would instead corrode and cause chaos. Last week’s big Radiohead news wouldn’t have sounded out of place on that album’s technosceptic vision of tomorrow. The band had been hacked,
