Previous topic I harped on the whole aesthetic (for what I still believe to be understandable reasons) without fully grasping what you guys had planned out. Art is inextricably a product of the historic context in which it's birthed so let's embrace this ugly political shitstorm, bounce it from tape to tape and throw some lush pads on there!
I like beautiful melodies telling me terrible things.

I don't care about politics even a little. All politicians will fail, despite whatever intentions they have. As soon as I vote, I feel that I would be bound to their inevitable failure and an accomplice to their possible crimes. What happens in politics happens and I'll deal with how that affects me without being a part of the show. So I prefer to stay completely politically neutral.
I made a shirt in high-school with "Jello for Prez" written crudely on the front. Dead Kennedys fans will recognize the reference. This type of art can be very entertaining and I like the idea of melding it in with a generally IDM sound.
That said, I will name my submission "Jello".
