Dambusted II

Back in August, we didn’t talk about much of anything other than press perceptions of accelerationism and the Whaley Bridge’s busted dam. I wrote a post about both topics that has lingered in the back of my mind ever since. That was a big moment of self-reflection that changed how I looked at 2019.

We only heard about everything from afar then and, with accelerationism’s press on ice for the time being, now we’re up in Derbyshire for Christmas, it was pretty sobering to see the aftermath.

The Chinook-dropped bags of hardcore and whatever else are still plugging the hole and the insane amount of pumps — that can pump out “four bathtubs a second”, apparently — make it feel like a microcosm of a warzone.

A surreal sight.
