Anaconda, Bailey Jay, and Memes: Pink Floyd performing in Venice, 1989 Since its birth, rock music has been seen as a revolutionary force and an agent of social change. But Pink Floyd’s show in Venice on July 15th, 1989, unintentionally resulted in the mayor and the entire city council resigning in the aftermath of their performance.⁣ ⁣ Even before a note was played, residents were up in arms, saying that the vibrations caused by the music had the potential to cause harm to the ancient monuments. So the band, sympathetic to the city, agreed to reduce the volume of its performance from 100 decibels to 60, and performed from a floating barge in a lagoon 200 yards from the square.⁣ ⁣ It was the audience, which numbered 200,000, that did the most damage. Officials said that they left behind 300 tons of garbage, and because the city didn’t provide portable bathrooms, concertgoers relieved themselves on the monuments and walls.⁣ ⁣ The public outrage was immediate. At a public meeting two days later, Mayor Antonio Casellati took defense saying that there was “unusual pressure” from “RAI”, the state-run television network that profited from the concert. But his attempts at spin were shouted down with "Resign, resign, you've turned Venice into a toilet." The Venetians got their wish. Before the end of the week, the entire city council had resigned, taking Casellati — who was elected by a coalition in the council — down with them.

Empire, Stephen, and Target: 201 TE thecarefree: Austria-Hungary (also known as the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Austro-Hungarian monarchy or k.u.k. Monarchy), more formally known as the Kingdoms and Lands Represented in the Imperial Council and the Lands of the Holy Hungarian Crown of Saint Stephen, was a constitutional monarchic union between the crowns of the Austrian Empire and the Kingdom of Hungary in Central Europe. The union was a result of the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867, under which the House of Habsburg agreed to share power with the separate Hungarian government, dividing the territory of the former Austrian Empire between them. The Austrian and the Hungarian lands became independent entities enjoying equal status. Austria-Hungary was a multinational realm and one of the world’s great powers at the time. The dual monarchy existed for 51 years until it dissolved on 31 October 1918 before a military defeat on the Italian front of the First World War. In the autumn of 1918, the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy collapsed. In the capital cities of Vienna and Budapest the leftist and liberal movements and politicians (the opposition parties) strengthened and supported the separatism of ethnic minorities. These leftist or left-liberal pro-Entente maverick parties opposed the monarchy as a form of government and considered themselves internationalist rather than patriotic. Eventually, the German defeat and the minor revolutions in Vienna and Budapest gave political power to the left/liberal political parties. As it became apparent that the Allied powers of the British Empire, France, Italy and the United States would win World War I, nationalist movements which had previously been calling for a greater degree of autonomy for various areas started pressing for full independence.
