The Life Intense: A Modern Obsession by Tristan Garcia – review3h The Life Intense: A Modern Obsession by Tristan Garcia – review
An erudite study argues that our appetite for new thrills is leaving us indifferent to the values of subtlety and compromiseIn 2014 a leading life insurance company asked 2,000 of its British clients the things they would most like to do before they died. Some of the bucket list items were concrete goals – No 1 was “have a holiday home abroad”, while a little further down the list was “own a Mulberry handbag”. The great majority of the wishes, however, involved experiences rather than assets. The experience most desired by the largest number of respondents was to “swim with dolphins”; it was followed, variously, by “drive Route 66”, “ride a hot air balloon”, “hold a koala” and “do a parachute jump”. Perhaps more than any previous culture we routinely associate adrenaline with enlightenment. The bucket-list hit parade represents a triumph of what

Matangi/Maya/MIA review – her side now in a star-dominated music documentary26h Matangi/Maya/MIA review – her side now in a star-dominated music documentary
The maverick musician gets to tell her story, her way in Steve Loveridge’s film There’s a kinship between director Steven Loveridge’s approach to his subject, the mercurial, confrontational British Tamil recording artist MIA, and her own magpie approach to music. Both cut and paste their sources and inspiration into a thrilling mash-up of noise and information. Loveridge has access to huge resources of self-filmed material, accounts of MIA’s quest for knowledge, about herself, her culture, her family. We see her travelling the world compiling the scrapbook of musical influences that makes her sound so vital. It is very much the MIA story told from the MIA viewpoint. Normally, this might be an issue, but, as the film points out, so many people have rushed to undermine and discredit her, it’s perhaps only fair that in this case she gets to tell her side, without spin or

Council housing: how Hackney has raised the game26h Council housing: how Hackney has raised the game
Not everyone will be fans, but by cross-subsidising, talking to residents and valuing good design, the east London borough is investing in some of the best council housing ever builtIn the 1990s, in a special kind of civic carnival, council-owned tower blocks were garlanded with the banners of demolition contractors. Explosives were set. Crowds would then gather at a hopefully safe distance. There was anticipation, as before a firework display, until – kerplunk! – the former homes of hundreds descended like stumpy ballerinas into spreading skirts of dust. As the received wisdom was that tower blocks were a Bad Thing, there was little inhibition about celebrating their destruction. Times change. The finishing touches are currently being applied to two blocks, 20 and 16 storeys high, commissioned by the London borough of Hackney, which was once an enthusiastic detonator of its own high-rise housing stock. There is a twist: the new towers contain flats for private sale, at prices from
