His notion that in the future, the sociopolitical order of the day will involve uniting
integrated individuals into large, racially distinct, "automatized" social groups,
presided over by geniuses who express a nation's soul by uniting its multifarious
rhythms and who implement ideologies grounding these political states in the "
natural rhythms" of the cosmos and the race, is uncannily prophetic: Rhythm is a
force analogous to electricity and the great chemical and physical elements, —

temporal rhythms of race-intimacy assemblages for which spatialisation is only
secondary. The transformations of race-intimacy assemblages thus become
chronicled as a temporally linear narrative of monochromatic romance that the
organic regime of film offers to tell. Organic narration traces the effects of
monochromatic romance on couples: racism's eventual triumph over intimacy,
then the eventual nullification of racism by true love. It proceeds causally,
displaying clearly what ...

... pieces of steel, bones, bottles, wooden sticks and broom straws that were used
as musical instruments to provide rhythm. The practice of "patting juba," a type of

I would say that the combination of blue jeans, appropriate for such a dance as
rock and roll, African American rhythms, and a personal return to the body from
an abstraction of ideology had more to do with ending the cold war and
overthrowing the absolutist bureaucracies of the socialist countries than all of the
military threats. Well, that's why the totalitarian authorities were so afraid of jazz
and later of rock, of course. All dictatorships were afraid of rock and roll and jazz.
They thought it ...

One of the fundamental building blocks of rap, as it is for all types of music, is
rhythm. However, what separates the rhythms of rap's words from those found in
most other types of music, such as folk, is their highly developed complexity.
Rather than being random, completely improvised, or even a complicated type of
rhythmic swing that makes a music's beats flow together, a rapper's lyrics are
delivered in complex rhythmic subdivisions like noctuplets or septuplets. To not
recognize or ...
