Guess what cool guy? The fire your sitting in front of. If there is one fact that rings true throughout this man's scaremongering infomercial. Its not the technology that is the problem. It is the lack of forethought into design and implementation of the technology that is problem.
Whether you agree with this guy or not, humans are not rational beings, and as long as personal wealth is the primary consideration in doing anything we are in trouble. Everybody here who is taking chunks out of this guy is simply a hater.
At least he is trying to do no harm. Who among us doesn't have faults and mental hang ups. I think he's a damn cool guy. Standing up to the CIA means you are one hell of a guy. So he thought of his hut But he never could think which he ought to do first.
And so in the end he did nothing at all, But basked on the shingle wrapped up in a shawl. And I think it was dreadful the way he behaved - He did nothing but bask until he was saved! I like that.. I think about how our modern time is 10, years or more in the making and how when you walk deep I imagine half way for the story into the forest the only way out is to keep on walking.. It is a challenge to notice the depth of the forest we are in and it takes even more courage and conviction to walk out..
I have some sympathy for the chap in his tent, he searched so hard he got lost. Can't see the wood for the trees ;.
I liked the poem ,. I saw the famous one that I can't spell , coy anna scatty or something? Is that the fellow? Saw it years ago, when I was too young to appreciate it properly, I remember not being that keen. Should try again now I'm older and not so easily bugged by films that lack running, shooting and aliens ; If you know any six year olds you should get the book, perfect excuse to indulge your inner child ;.
It is sad when people who do know about the cost analysis of modern technology continue to live in opposition to their message. If they won't change, the ones who burn with the knowledge, then no one will The guy has a F'n conscious and feels sad that a particular lifestyle is screwing everything up Whether he changes his life is another issue, but the realization is a heavy one..
Anyone who runs into the desert and contemplates suicide is over-reacting to life's problems. He faces the exact same things we all do. Self pity helps no one. I never once said to ignore the problems. I said and this is copied and pasted from my earlier statement " Lighten the f0ck up, change what you can and accept what you can't.
Life is short. If you can't enjoy it, you're wasting it. Every living creature consumes to survive. We consume more than other creatures but it is to ensure our immediate survival. It's not the fact that we consume. It's what and how we consume that is going to be the difference. Our homes, transportation systems and all the trappings that go with it is what makes life worth living for the average individual. We have to find ways to make that consumption sustainable and it's not going to happen overnight.
First, if you have never contemplated suicide then you haven't really lived outside your illusory safety bubble. Do have any idea how many Vets commit suicided everyday, do realize more people die from suicide than car wrecks in the US.. That is the first point that demonstrates your lack of insight. There is a difference between changing what we can and changing what we want. We could change all sorts of things but we are selfish humans who live through our animal desires and worry more about our "feelings" than creating equal opportunity age old sustainable consumption.
Second statement of ignorance on your part. We need food, shelter, water, air and maybe a few other things to survive, this is basic survivor consumption and statistically proven that once these are filled "happiness" doesn't improve much. Ipods, computers, cars are not necessary for life to exist, never have never will be essential it is a temporary hundreds of years fade.
If you think that your material possessions are what make life worth living you must be another generation wuss member.. The only sustainable age was the stone age.. First of all, you have no idea about my life or what I've had to endure. Hardship and heartbreak is not just the lot of the those who are depressed and suicidal. It is something we all have to deal with at some point in our lives.
He contemplated suicide, which demonstrates a severe depression. That is not a normal existence for a human being and people spend millions on psychiatric help to defeat those feelings of desperation. Years later, the guy nearly burst into tears talking about his personal demons. He still hasn't gotten his life under control. That is the sad part. What is infuriating is that he has decided to take the rest of us down his road of despair and defeat.
Well, I won't go. I wouldn't go that route when I suffered great personal losses and I definitely will not because of his apocalyptic visions. My material possessions do help to make my life worth living. I have a nice modest home that keeps me warm and dry. A fridge and stove to help in the preparation of food. Clean clothes, a comfy bed, and the transportation that helps to maintain this modest lifestyle. The same things that most people value. I do have a computer and obviously so do you.
Welcome to the wuss generation. The stone age may well have been sustainable, but I doubt you seriously want to return to that age and have to live that lifestyle. I did say that there are changes to be made. I never once denied it. Life is change and when the time comes, we will adapt.
Maybe some people like to give up and live a life of isolation and paranoia, but I'm not going to live my life that way. I'll help to make the changes that are possible and try not to dwell on things I have no control over. My despair or my optimism affects no one but me. I choose optimism. Despair is a lousy choice. I always get a good chuckle when people start out defending themselves by stating no one knows about the life they have lived or are living..
It is so funny because this follows their assessment of someone else's life.. Jacka just got done giving his peer review of Michael's state of being then says no one can understand his own.. I understand, Jack, if you don't like the idea of suicide but you aren't the final word on what it is or isn't.. It isn't always a question of mental illness. Many argue that your strong desires for a refridge, a stove, a car, electrical wiring, phones, tv, internet, endless distractions is in fact a mental illness Your lifestyle is in route the lifestyle in general some would say has already to destroying life for the future generations..
That fact that you defend your comfort and state that you wouldn't want, in my opinion are too lazy and live in fear of, to live in the nature based methods is a mental sickness. You have addiction problems that are harming people now and well into the future.. Jack YOU are an unintelligent a. Live Jack's motto "change what you want, consume what you can, the only person that matters is his or herself in the end" Jack and the modern dunces Why did you edit your post into something quite different?
Of course you have every right to do so, since it wasn't replied to. But still, for those who read the first version, it gives quite a different impression about your initial intent. I believe this is the only sentence I changed, and did so cause I thought it didn't read correctly.. I do apologize please explain how the message changed..
Oops, my mistake. I scrolled up and down and then scrolled back to another post of yours thinking it was the same. No worries.. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.. That's the biggest string of nonsense I've read in awhile. First, I didn't say that you can't understand what I've been through. I said that you don't know and therefore have no right to make assumptions.
I want a fridge to keep my food in The stove cooks that food. I, all of us, are not in an never ending search for the fuel to cook the food and and can now preserve it so it remains healthy to eat because we have electricity at our beck and call. Modern transportation guarantees that food is always on the store shelves. These modern tools are a result of a human desire for survival. Primitive man was at the mercy of the weather, spent endless hours foraging for food, clothing, shelter and fuel, watched the majority of his children die at a very young age, and then probably met his end prematurely.
If wanting to ensure my food supply, have adequate shelter and clothing, and make it possible for my children to survive childhood is a mental disease, then I'm sick By the way, so are you. I can guarantee that you have a stove, fridge, computer, have decent clothes and live in a dry warm home.
You're as sick as the rest of us. You're also a hypocrite. Once again, I didn't say that there were no problems. I said we should try and change what's possible and I'll add necessary. I also said that wallowing in misery because things aren't going exactly as we please is pointless and serves to further degrade the only life we have. Name calling doesn't validate your position one bit. Stop with the school yard behaviour and try and discuss issues like an adult.
But he does have a point Granted I know nothing of you, but I don't get the impression you've ever been at that lowest point It's literally a chemical reaction in your brain that removes all of the joy from life If your attitude is how you get by then more power to you, but for some of us it isn't as simple as lightening up To clarify, I was reacting to how he makes assumptions about individuals he has never met.
He believes that depression hasn't touched me personally. How would he know that? He sneeringly dismisses another commenter because of her age and then paints a picture of her as a vapid teenager, uneducated and driven by cultural imperatives, despite the fact that she watched the same documentary he did. I mention that I grew up during the hippie era and off he goes generalizing about what type of person I must be. I have every sympathy for those suffering from depression and I understand the clinical aspects of the condition.
Some suffer due to chemical imbalance and others have had the condition triggered by traumatic events in their lives. What I resist is the notion that if I don't support the ideas expressed of one, who is clearly suffering from depression, that I must have sort of mental disorder. Depressed people find that certain events overwhelm the thoughts and can affect their lives in negative ways. To suggest that we all should aspire to live this way, in a state of depression, is unreasonable and he is either being argumentative or maybe has issues of his own.
I think it's a very human trait, to try and avoid reality and instead exist in denial. Or to react to a truth as "a deer in the headlights". We are only human. That said, I am very comforted by knowing a man like Michael exists in this world. I don't care if he smokes, or swears.
It is irrelevant. He has found peace. He's tired of arguing. He's made his contribution and argued his points for 30 years. Nor am I prepared to argue scientific data or conspiracy theories.
I'm simply one of the sheeple, and I'm living the best life I can, based on what I think I know, and feel. I am very glad to have met this man Michael, and wish him, and all of those who care about our world, a safe and contented life, come what may.
Wow, I didn't realise it was the same Michael Ruppert from the documentary 'Collapse'. I remember how disheartening that doc was, watching an otherwise descent guy gradually lose the run of it. I'd wondered since then what had become of him so this doc was a bit of a shocker.
It's not nice to see such well intentioned people unravel before your eyes but if you're the type that rubber necks for car crashes then I'd advise watching 'Collapse' first, then this. You sick puppy. Wow, some pretty interesting comments here tonight. I'm going to take your advice and happily watch "Collapse" first. And it better be good! Sorry, it's me again. I could have sworn I watched here.
Ah well, I hope at least you get something out of it after me sending you on a wild goose chase that ended up with having your retinas scarred by youtube comments. Hey you. No worries! I watched both docs and posted a comment about it, on Youtube and here. I also told other friends about "Collapse" because it really mattered to me. Thankfully, I've met some pretty decent commenters lately on Youtube; but some days my eyes are indeed burning.
I post using a different name on Youtube. I didn't get the impression he's unravelled maybe because I'm pretty weird myself. I think he's tired and resigned, and has moved on to a different phase of his life. A lot of what he says and does in this doc sets off alarm bells for me. Then again, I may have fallen prey to fanatical skepticism recently, I'm still not sure. My friends are pretty "out there" and I mean that in the nicest way. I can assure you that I don't believe everything he says, but I don't think he's crazy.
To be fair I don't think he's crazy, no more than anyone beholden to a set of beliefs outside the norm. But it's obvious he's paying a high price for those beliefs and it's eating him away. The transition from cop with legitimate concerns regarding CIA complicity in drug dealing to harbinger of doom and full scale conspirasist is remarkable if you step back and look at it.
There's a warning in this story regarding what you chose to belief and where it leads, but unfortunately the people that most need that warning are the ones that will probably miss it. Of course there's always the possibility that we're the crazy ones and he's the lone voice of sanity.

But the legend that endures is that of Castor and Pollux. Gemini's two brightest stars bear the names of the twins. According to the most common version of theirstory, the queen of Sparta gave birth to two sets of twins, with one boy and one girl in each pair.
One set was fathered by her husband, the other by Zeus, king of the gods. The four children were raised together, and the two boys -- one mortal, the other immortal -- were inseparable.
They had many adventures, and joined Jason and the other Argonauts in the search for the golden fleece.
But during a fight with some landowners, the mortal Castor was killed. Pollux was inconsolable, and eventually begged Zeus to allow him to die so he could join Castor. Moved by Pollux's love for his brother, Zeus agreed to keep them together for eternity. They spend half of their time in the underworld, the other half in the heavens, where they are represented by the stars of Gemini.
A quick check with my 3-inch reflector shows that the WDS is in error. The primary is a Cepheid variable star magnitude range 3. This wide optical pair is easily split at X.
This slow-moving binary has thus far eluded my 3-inch reflector. A showpiece, arguably the finest double star visible in the northern sky. The separation has steadily increased since a minimum of 1. In Egyptian astrology, the constellation was identified with twin goats, while Arabian astrology said it was twin peacocks.
The Western world tends to identify these twins as Castor and Pollux from Greek myth. But other twin pairs identified with Gemini in the Western world include the older and younger Horus and the mythical founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus. Gemini was also the namesake of the Gemini program , a NASA space mission in the s that launched pairs of astronauts into space in the Gemini spacecraft. This constellation also inspired the names of the Gemini Observatory twin 8.
Best viewing is during February. Lesser shrines to Castor, Pollux and Helen were also established at a number of other locations around Sparta. The two deities were summoned to a table laid with food, whether at individuals' own homes or in the public hearths or equivalent places controlled by states.
They are sometimes shown arriving at a gallop over a food-laden table. Although such "table offerings" were a fairly common feature of Greek cult rituals, they were normally made in the shrines of the gods or heroes concerned. The domestic setting of the theoxenia was a characteristic distinction accorded to the Dioskouroi. The image of the twins attending a goddess are widespread [k] and link the Dioskouroi with the male societies of initiates under the aegis of the Anatolian Great Goddess  and the great gods of Samothrace.
The Dioscuri are the inventors of war dances, which characterize the Kuretes. From the 5th century BC onwards, the brothers were revered by the Romans, probably as the result of cultural transmission via the Greek colonies of Magna Graecia in southern Italy. The establishment of a temple may also be a form of evocatio , the transferral of a tutelary deity from a defeated town to Rome, where cult would be offered in exchange for favor.
The Roman legend could have had its origins in the Locrian account and possibly supplies further evidence of cultural transmission between Rome and Magna Graecia. The Romans believed that the twins aided them on the battlefield. Each year on July 15, Feast Day of the Dioskouroi, 1, equestrians would parade through the streets of Rome in an elaborate spectacle in which each rider wore full military attire and whatever decorations he had earned. Castor and Pollux are also represented in the Circus Maximus by the use of eggs as lap counters.
In translations of comedies by Plautus , women generally swear by Castor, and men by Pollux; this is exemplified by the slave-woman character Staphyla in A Pot of Gold act i, ll.
The Etruscans venerated the twins as Kastur and Pultuce , collectively as the tinas cliniiaras , "sons of Tinia ," Etruscan counterpart of Zeus. They were often portrayed on Etruscan mirrors. Another is symbolised in a painting depicted as two pointed caps crowned with laurel, referring to the Phrygian caps. Even after the rise of Christianity , the Dioskouroi continued to be venerated.
The 5th century pope Gelasius I attested to the presence of a "cult of Castores" that the people didn't want to abandon. In some instances, the twins appear to have simply been absorbed into a Christian framework; thus 4th century AD pottery and carvings from North Africa depict the Dioskouroi alongside the Twelve Apostles , the Raising of Lazarus or with Saint Peter.
The church took an ambivalent attitude, rejecting the immortality of the Dioskouroi but seeking to replace them with equivalent Christian pairs. Saints Peter and Paul were thus adopted in place of the Dioskouroi as patrons of travelers, and Saints Cosmas and Damian took over their function as healers. Rendel Harris published his work Boanerges ,  a Greek version probably of an Aramaic name meaning "Sons of Thunder ", thunder being associated with Zeus , father of Pollux, in what MacDonald calls a form of early Christian Dioscurism.
More directly, the Acts of the Apostles mentions the Dioskouroi in a neutral context, as the figurehead of an Alexandrian ship boarded by Paul in Malta ActsOf course, many of the constellation names are more modern -- Telescopium, the telescope, being a rather obvious newcomer. In fact, by the 19th century the night sky had become crowded with overlapping and often contradictory constellation boundaries and names as different schools of astronomy prepared their own versions of star maps.
At that time, a strongly psychedelic influenced band named Pegasus often played in the same bar and asked Parker to join them. In late Parker returned to England and lived with his parents, working at a petrol station around the corner from his childhood home in Deepcut.
By now he was determined to pursue a career in music and worked steadily on improving his guitar playing and song writing. One of the musicians who answered the ad was Noel Brown, a guitarist who lived in south London.
Live at Rockpalast. Golden Down. Willie Nile. Golden Down is the second studio album by American rock artist Willie Nile. It was first released in on vinyl through Arista Records. Shrunken Heads. In late he placed an ad in Melody Maker seeking like-minded backing musicians. One of the musicians who answered the ad was Noel Brown, a guitarist who lived in south London.
Riley thought Parker should meet Dave Robinson, the manager of the by now defunct Brinsley Schwarz band. One of the songs Parker recorded was "Between You and Me.
By now Robinson had become Parker's manager and a deal with Phonogram was struck. In , he recorded a few demo tracks in London with Dave Robinson, who would shortly found Stiff Records and who connected Parker with his first backing band of note, The Rumour. The band's first album, Howlin' Wind , was released to acclaim in April and was rapidly followed by the stylistically similar Heat Treatment. Establishing a recording career in early , Parker preceded two other new wave English singer-songwriters with whom he is often compared: Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson.
Costello's first single was released in , and Jackson's first solo single in late They made their first tour there in , where they spotted rising Australian band The Sports , who subsequently supported Parker and the Rumour on their early UK tour. An official Graham Parker and The Rumour live album, The Parkerilla , issued in , had nothing new:  three sides were live, with versions of previously released songs; the fourth was devoted to a "disco" remake of "Hey Lord, Don't Ask Me Questions".
The Parkerilla satisfied his contractual obligation to Mercury Records , freeing him to sign with Arista. Energized by his new label, Arista Records , and with record producer Jack Nitzsche , Parker wrote the songs that would form the basis for Squeezing Out Sparks , widely held to be the best album of his career.
The companion live album Live Sparks , was sent to US radio stations as part of a concerted promotional campaign. Yet, as Musician 's Geoffrey Himes wrote, "Parker doesn't so much sound like anybody as he sounds like everybody. For all his traditionalism, he is often considered the founding father of England's new wave. Parker was born to a working class family in Deepcut, some 30 miles outside London, in By age 17 he had encountered both the exhilaration of soul and reggae and the torpor and inequality of working life; both would fuel the songwriter's unique mixture of rage and hope.
He worked in a laboratory breeding animals for scientific research, he told Himes, and although he had aspirations in the field of zoology, his lack of higher education restricted his movement in that field.
So that's what I did. He made little headway in the music world, though, and was forced to take a series of menial jobs. The band was comprised of musicians from such well-regarded rock outfits as Brinsley Schwarz, Ducks Deluxe, and Bontemps Roulez. It seemed a perfect match: Parker's take-noprisoners vocals and The Rumour's driving guitars and crackling rhythm section. Rolling Stone labeled the song a "masterpiece.
Like its predecessor, the album made a huge impression on critics despite poor sales. Unfortunately, Parker's luck with his record company was inversely proportional to his success with critics. He and The Rumour had completed a third album, Stick to Me , with producer Mutt Lange, but a flaw in the master tapes forced them to re-record the entire LP with Nick Lowe in just a fraction of the time.
The rushed recording process yielded a somewhat inferior-sounding product, and reviewers were less than enthusiastic about the release. By this time the singer's long-simmering impatience with Mercury's seeming inability to promote his work had reached a boiling point.
In he and The Rumour released a double-live album, The Parkerilla , to get out of his contract with the label.
Critics complained about the sound quality and felt somewhat betrayed by Parker: They had crowned him the Next Big Thing, and he hadn't come through. Marcus dismissed The Parkerilla as "a waste of time. Parker described his anger at Mercury on a single in called "Mercury Poisoning," for his new label, Arista. In it the singer hissed, "I'm the best-kept secret in the West. Producer Jack Nitzsche persuaded the band to play more economically, thus emphasizing the guitar-driven intensity of Parker's compositions.
The album included "Discovering Japan," a bittersweet love song, as well as the edgy, political rock-reggae tune "Protection. Parker's release The Up Escalator featured more tough rockers, including "Endless Night," which boasted backing vocals by Parker fan and rock superstar Bruce Springsteen. Escalator marked the end of Parker's collaboration with The Rumour. The band had already cut a few albums without him, and he felt that he would be better off on his own. Pareles reviewed the album, this time in Rolling Stone , and felt that "[Parker] clearly feels at home.
Rolling Stone admired the "propulsive, brilliantly sung LP," detecting "some of the British singer's best work since Squeezing Out Sparks. Released in , the disc garnered strong reviews. When he returned in , Hayes remained on drums and Lyons moved to lead guitar. Lyons left for good in after the recording of Couldn't Get High. The band has continued recording and touring steadily and in celebrated their 30th anniversary with shows featuring Lyons sitting in on some of their earliest tunes.
The album broke the top 20 on the UK charts but divided critical opinions, particularly with numbers like "The Heat in Harlem" -- the band's longest song at the time. Nick Lowe 's production also came under fire: some critics complained that the band sounded thin and Parker's voice was mixed down, when in fact a studio mishap had compromised the original recordings and forced the group to remake the album on short notice. Although ignored by local commercial radio at the time, Parker and the Rumour gained a dedicated following in Australia thanks to the support of Sydney independent rock station Double Jay 2JJ and the ABC's weekly pop TV show Countdown , which gave the group nationwide exposure in Australia.
They made their first tour there in , where they spotted rising Australian band The Sports , who subsequently supported Parker and the Rumour on their early UK tour [ 1 ]. The group made a second Australian tour in late , when Parker appeared on Countdown as a guest presenter [ 2 ]. Three sides were live, with no new songs and with versions of previously released songs that added nothing to the prior studio cuts.
Side four was devoted to a "disco" remake of "Don't Ask Me Questions". The 2-disc record was regarded by some as a ploy to fulfil Parker's contractual commitment to Mercury records, and as a ripoff for fans. Others think it one of the better live albums of the 70s on a par with Thin Lizzy 's Live and Dangerous. Parker had long been dissatisfied with the performance of his US record company, Mercury Records , finally issuing in as a single B-side "Mercury Poisoning", a public kiss-off reminiscent of the Sex Pistols ' "EMI".
Energized by his new label, Arista Records , and the presence of legendary producer Jack Nitzsche , Parker followed with Squeezing Out Sparks , widely held to be the best album of his career. For this album, The Rumour's brass section, prominent on all previous albums, was jettisoned, resulting in a spare, intense rock backing for some of Parker's most brilliant songs. Of particular note was "You Can't Be Too Strong", one of rock music's rare songs to confront the topic of abortion , however ambivalently.
Squeezing out Sparks is still ranked by fans and critics alike as one of the finest rock albums ever made.Check out Degrees In June; GP & Figgs Live by Graham Parker on Amazon Music. Stream ad-free or purchase CD's and MP3s now on rockandroll.dalalsanuanaracordalanim.infoinfo
Renae finds the "German dungeon porn" card a bit too correct, while the girls are grossed out by the "anal beads".
The cards mostly got moderate reaction from the girls, though the last one caused confusion. Andrea chooses "My vagina" as the best answer, giving Mariya a point. The girls find the "Nipple-blades" and "50, volts straight to the nipples" to be painful, Mackenzie questioning why it has to be the nipples.
Mariya comments that "Concealing a boner" isn't her problem and that "Chainsaws for hands" would hurt others more than herself. Sydney comments that "Fiery poops" would end anything. Andrea notes that she finds Mr.
Clean attractive, so it wouldn't stop her. Sydney chooses "Erectile dysfunction", even though it didn't get much of a response due to it being a bit too real. This gives Renae a point. The cards didn't get much reactions from the girls, other than being grossed out by "Lactation". Rashae chooses "Panda sex" as the best answer, giving Sydney a point. After two rounds, Renae and Andrea tied for first place.
Mackenzie and Mariya tied for second, while Rashae got two cards and Sydney got one. Well, it's certainly not a problem for them!
But it is a problem for everyone else. Conquering a nation from the outside by overrunning its borders and taking control of its government is a bloody and horrific endeavor, with an uncertain result. It is far easier, far less bloody and hardly even noticed by sympathetic big media to put one's efforts into defrauding citizens of their legitimate vote and altering the election's outcome through fraud and deceit.
Big media, the propaganda arm of leftists in America, has devised a non-threatening, everybody-does-it language to describe what is in fact one of the most vile and filthy crimes in America.
There is no talk of overthrowing a nation's government, but rather the media's writings and utterances are filled with "irregularities, shenanigans, dirty-tricks, ballot box stuffing, the voting dead" and the like. These are the words and phrases big-media uses to frame the narrative away from overthrowing the government and reduce it into the realm of college pranks. The left seems to be possessed of an infinite ego with regard to their governing skills.
They, and they alone, are the final authorities on producing a happy and prosperous America. The Constitution and citizen voters who disagree with them be damned. As in fact they have been for quite a few generations.
DU affects immune and hormonal systems and damages thyroid function, all of which are essential for aging gracefully. After Vietnam, veterans, in numbers that grew with the passage of time, complained of joint aches, night sweats, bloody feces, migraine headaches, unexplained rashes and violent behavior. Some developed cancer. It took more than 25 years for the Pentagon to finally acknowledge that Agent Orange — a corrosive defoliant used to melt the jungles of Vietnam and flush out the enemy — was linked to those sufferings.
Bombing Iraq with DU continued during military operations of the invasion of Iraq in , then afterward in other cities that resisted occupation. West Basra was a particularly hard-hit DU target. For many years, the U. As a result, thousands of Iraqi children and their families in Basra were repeatedly exposed for an extended duration to DU low-level radiation LLR and its toxic affects.
The occupiers further refused to clean up contaminated areas. This failure subjected the civilian population to a continuous and systematic attack each time DU-oxide contaminated dust storms blew in on the city of Basra and surrounding areas for years to come. Pro-occupation death-squad goons assassinated a number of Iraqi physicians who tried to deal with this threat.
Huda Ammash was imprisoned without any real accusation for three years for conducting very important research on Iraqi Armed Forces veterans who were exposed to DU weapons. In all, an estimated Iraqi scientists were assassinated by U.
While the affects on older veterans is longer-term and more pernicious, the impact on newborns and younger children is more evident and stark. There have been sharp spikes in the rates of congenital birth defects, premature births, miscarriages and leukemia cases. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.

This is evident from the numerous requests, lots of airplay, and the ever-increasing number of people downloading the song. In the song, Chris Eeh Baba who is a gospel rap artist generally talks about the close relationship between him and his maker God.
He is among the ageing musicians whose songs have always dominated the charts locally as well as regionally. The song is an urban pop song that gives praise to the African woman. It is obvious that Kenyans are opting to download music directly from the internet.

Lever du jour Original Version 1. Whether or not it was intended as a metaphor for the predicament of European civilization in the aftermath of the Great War, its one-movement design plots the birth, decay and destruction of a musical genre: the waltz.
Ravel himself, however, denied that it is a reflection of post- World War I Europe, saying:. While some discover an attempt at parody, indeed caricature, others categorically see a tragic allusion in it — the end of the Second Empire, the situation in Vienna after the war, etc This dance may seem tragic, like any other emotion But one should only see in it what the music expresses: an ascending progression of sonority, to which the stage comes along to add light and movement.
He also commented, in , that "It doesn't have anything to do with the present situation in Vienna, and it also doesn't have any symbolic meaning in that regard. In the course of La Valse , I did not envision a dance of death or a struggle between life and death.
The year of the choreographic setting, , repudiates such an assumption. In his tribute to Ravel after the composer's death in , Paul Landormy described the work as follows:. The idea of La valse began first with the title "Vienne", then Wien French and German for " Vienna ", respectively as early as , where Ravel intended to orchestrate a piece in tribute to the waltz form and to Johann Strauss II. After his service in the French Army , Ravel returned to his original idea of the symphonic poem Wien.
Ravel described his own attraction to waltz rhythm as follows, to Jean Marnold, while writing La valse :. You know my intense attraction to these wonderful rhythms and that I value the joie de vivre expressed in the dance much more deeply than Franckist puritanism.
Ravel completely reworked his idea of Wien into what became La valse , which was to have been written under commission from Serge Diaghilev as a ballet. Lever du jour Original Version 5.

Even as previous motives re-entered, as if to assert control once more, the winding waltz persisted in its frenzy. The concert hall seemed too still for such frenzy, too our of context without the dance to tell a story.
I enjoyed La Valse as a work of complex beauty, but not as the story that it may have been intended to portray. Of course, Ravel might well have intended to portray no more than a dance gone rogue — but without the dancing itself, the possibilities of interpretation are endless. Through whirling clouds, waltzing couples may be faintly distinguished. The clouds gradually scatter: one sees an immense hall filled with a swirling throng.

From his days playing uncredited on a Lester Young record, Nat King Cole liked to bring in top-notch jazz musicians for his tracks. The song was written by Ollie Jones, and Cole delivers the lyrics with his usual impeccable pitch, sounding so relaxed as a performer.
Cole was a groundbreaking figure in American popular music. At the height of his popularity he became the first African-American to host his own television show, but he never forgot his roots. When a club owner asked him to form a band, he hired bassist Wesley Prince and guitarist Oscar Moore.
They called themselves the King Cole Swingsters after the nursery rhyme in which " Old King Cole was a merry old soul. Cole recorded " Sweet Lorraine " in , and it became his first hit. Cole said that this fabricated story sounded good, so he didn't argue with it. In fact there was a customer one night who demanded that he sing, but because it was a song Cole didn't know, he sang "Sweet Lorraine" instead.
As people heard Cole's vocal talent, they requested more vocal songs, and he obliged. Cole appeared in the first Jazz at the Philharmonic concerts in He was credited on Mercury as "Shorty Nadine", a derivative of his wife's name, because he had an exclusive contract with Capitol  since signing with the label the year before.
He recorded with Illinois Jacquet and Lester Young. In the trio broadcast King Cole Trio Time , a fifteen-minute radio program. This was the first radio program to be sponsored by a black musician. Between and the trio recorded radio transcriptions for Capitol Records Transcription Service. Cole began recording and performing pop-oriented material in which he was often accompanied by a string orchestra. The variety program was one of the first hosted by an African American,  The program started at a length of fifteen-minutes but was increased to a half-hour in July Rheingold Beer was a regional sponsor, but a national sponsor was never found.
The last episode aired on December 17, Love Is the Thing went to number one in April remained his only number one album. It was so popular in Latin America and the U. After the change in musical tastes, Cole's ballads appealed little to young listeners, despite a successful attempt at rock and roll with " Send for Me ",  which peaked at number 6 on the pop chart. Like Dean Martin , Frank Sinatra , and Tony Bennett , he found that the pop chart had been taken over by youth-oriented acts.
Cole later retooled the concept album into an Off-Broadway show, I'm with You. He performed in many short films, sitcoms, and television shows and played W. Handy in the film St. Louis Blues He was introduced as "the best friend a song ever had" and sang " When I Fall in Love ". Cat Ballou , his final film, was released several months after his death.
Earlier on, Cole's shift to traditional pop led some jazz critics and fans to accuse him of selling out, but he never abandoned his jazz roots; as late as he recorded an all-jazz album, After Midnight , and many of his albums after this are fundamentally jazz-based, being scored for big band without strings, although the arrangements focus primarily on the vocal rather than instrumental leads.
Cole had one of his last major hits in , two years before his death, with " Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer ", which reached number 6 on the Pop chart. The duet version rose to the top of the pop charts, almost forty years after its original popularity. Around the time Cole launched his singing career, he entered into Freemasonry. The lodge was named after fellow Prince Hall mason and jazz musician Fats Waller. In , Nelson Riddle related an incident from some years earlier and told of music studio engineers, searching for a source of noise, finding Cole listening to a game on a transistor radio.
Cole met his first wife, Nadine Robinson, while they were on tour for the all-black Broadway musical Shuffle Along. He was 18 when they married. They had five children: Natalie — , who had a successful career as a singer, died of congestive heart failure; an adopted daughter, Carole —, the daughter of Maria's sister , who died of lung cancer at the age of 64; an adopted son, Nat Kelly Cole — , who died of AIDS at the age of 36;  and twin daughters, Casey and Timolin born September 26, , whose birth was announced in the "Milestones" column of Time magazine on October 6, Maria supported him during his final illness and stayed with him until his death.
In an interview, she emphasized his musical legacy and the class he exhibited despite his imperfections. The Greatest Hits [Capitol]. Romantic Moods. Nice 'n' Easy [Union Square].

The Light Harmonic DaVinci takes home a Jimmy for showing the quest for sonic excellence can be accompanied by stunning appearance. Since many is the slip twixt prototype cup and production lip, a working mockup from a startup company could not win a Jimmy Award.
However, when applied to two old-line companies of established credibility, the rule is senseless. In the case of Convergent Audio Technology , the new JL5 stereo amplifier was playing, although it was housed in a much larger JL2 chassis.
The JL5 uses four KTs a great tube per channel, putting out a very conservative watts per side. The price of a deluxe JL5 is penciled in around twelve grand, a basement bargain for a CAT amplifier. The First Favorite Prototype Award goes to Vandersteen , which showed a cross-section of a new high-pass! Although the amp will not sell separately that I know of , it should prove a perfect match for the Vandersteen Model 7, which already has built-in bass amplification.
The amplifier uses a tube front-end and a single-ended transistor! In over 40 years, King Richard Vandersteen has taken few false steps. If you believe, as I do, that concert-like realism resides in a loudspeaker's upper-bass response, there is good news for you.
Two loudspeakers convey music's foundation as well as any I've heard, and they do it at eminently reasonable prices. Cable manufacturer Acoustic Zen has been quietly building speakers for almost a decade. It's time for the company to roar about this. Designer Robert Lee has taken the venerable transmission-line design to its theoretical limits.
The Crescendo is quick to respond, almost anticipating the flow of notes. This is loudspeaker as musical instrument.
Cable manufacturer Nordost smartly chose to show with the KOs. As mentioned above, the KOs revealed a huge difference between rival cable products Nordost won, of course. But besides being a cable junkie's delight, the KOs had a see-through quality that riveted one's attention.
On "What Good Am I? Euphoria German, Euphorie. In years past, few German manufacturers made the JA list. To my ear, the sound of Teutonic gear was brassy and strident, as if designed to give traditional "oom pah pah" music extra bite. This year a new group from Deutschland brought mellower stuff to the show, producing three standout rooms.
The Podszus family of Germany has been perfecting rigid-foam-diaphragm technology since a date which elicits newsreel memories. Their flagship, the Zellaton Grand, is an unassuming loudspeaker in terms of size and number of cone faces. However, the back of the cabinet is open; the upper 7" driver is full range to 8kHz and a 10" down-firing rigid-foam-diaphragm woofer hidden on the speaker's bottom is a bass beast.
For being the first non-horn German speaker to force a sit-down, the Zellatron Grand earns a Jimmy Award. There, the stage was softly lit, like a yellow bulb in a hallway. However, the spectacular Octave equipment did it the other way around, providing so much harmonic detail in the center that one's attention did not stray to the sides as much as with other systems. That a German manufacturer could express warm feelings rather than cold precision was a first for this observer.
An even bigger surprise than Octave was finding a German manufacturer of solid-state electronics that sang with a mellifluous voice. A company called Idektron from the Ruhr industrial region builds Audionet , a brand which includes amplifiers to music servers. The company's literature mentions the word "passion" several times and with good reason.
The presentation in the Audionet room was passionate in a way that many six-figure systems did not come close to matching. FLAC, etc. Despite being DSP-based or because of it?

The aim of this course is to get you familiar with the Odyssey's controls and capabilities for live performance and Studio use Note: Only recording known of the very first Utopia line-up. A real strange affair with Tony and Hunt Sales in the band for this two week wonder tour.
Background vocals were lacking here but a great set list - from this short lived, barely promoted and aborted tour. This tape quality is really not all that bad after some work and reduction of the bass.
It's the best we're going to get with the sound quality on this one. He flew a 'Helldiver' Bomber. Thank you Istvan! Somebody did an excellent audio dub for us from the Don Kirshner's Rock Concert video. What's even better is we've just gotten an incredible upgrade of the video! And the ever faithful Joe Franks did us an upgrade on the audio that we added to it. Of course there are numerous tapes, boot CDs, boot LPs and torrents of this out there in circulation now.
Most all very good. But we like this particular glorious sound vinyl drop the best. Note: I think everything's already been said about this famous recording. Just an excellent broadcast from way back when. Excellent quality from original vinyl transcript. Probably the best upgrade of this show. I've recently worked hard on this broadcast Stereo Seperation, Bringing Highlights up front and splitting tracks accordingly.
And it, unfortunately, is interrupted during the performance at times by the Columbus Announcer. Some pretty goofy comments too! Todd's really jammin' And he calls it a " This was evidently broadcast originally on AM and FM. Black Maria one of the strongest tunes cuts in.
This is all from my low generation tape. Long traded tape that definitely has seen an upgrade on this digital transfer We all know that great sounding early stuff is hard to find. We can get the real feel of living and listening to 'proto' Radio in from listening to this Lots of character.
Note: The booted version. Dubbed from the obscure double vinyl. Note: I always wanted to do this for decades All the Todd rarities Collectors Circles know the story behind this one. And this also was the first Todd Rarity to make the Bootleg Market. Then I tried to bring highlights up front. Especially vocals. But on the second set; from ' 1 Lowest Common Denominator thru 'Hungry for Love'- Todd's vocal microphone mix seemed to be way turned down for some reason by the sound crew.
Thus those tracks suffer a bit. Don't get me wrong it's still all a little rough, but very much of an upgrade I think. You'll notice that I seamed all 'Medleys' together. And very worthy of burning to CD and enjoying the Show on your home system or car! I believe you'll definitely enjoy this upgrade and add it to your collection! I've noticed this on a couple of torrent sites as such too. Why they did that I do not know. However, the last portion of this Toronto show was on the B side of some other tapings apparently, and missed getting in on most trading exchanges.
So here's the whole Show in all it's glory, for those of you that don't have it. I divided the show into just how it was performed. Two seperate sets divided by an intermission. This a magnificent quality audience recording.
This one track only. It cuts immediately after a couple of seconds of Is It My Name. But we get the whole tune in all it's glory. Todd's guitar very much out front here. Vocals a little 'concert hallish' but instruments very clear. Wish we had more of this Cincinnati show. And probably the best record we have phonics-wise. A bit better than Detroit from this era when The Ikon was still a bunch of smaller pieces.
Yes, an exceptional audience recording considering amateur technology 42 years ago. And the sound system just really never recovers. In this case, we run out of music not quite half way through the second set…after 29 seconds into the second Ikon segment.
And the bad parts are great - if just for posterity. Be Be Buell calls it the 'Maneating Peacock' costume. Todd's drag friend Nicky adorned him with this makeup and costume props. It was a shock surprise 'appearance' to everybody of course. Paul Fishkin claims this garb sabatoged Todd's early career. But a band that has outlasted most other American bands since 67 has so much history that obviously something else makes them still worth recording in It is the Ikon, in all its splendor, cut into FM radio playable sections by Bearsville, each of which has a central theme of some sort chronologically through the piece.
Just a fascinating view into how Todd thought this should be accomplished. If there is a single type on that side which there is not, really it would be that tune. Larry Clark adds the voter ads from a vinyl source - the Flo and Eddie stuff is pretty funny.
The Want of a Nail was from a promo cd single. And all transferred to 48K 16bits with removed scratches and such. As soon as its back in, I'll remove it. Roger Steel did this and a group of classics to come for us. His contribution is huge, and cannot be overstated.
He's collected and preserved for decades now- Thanks Roger! Todd is all over this. His chords, voicings, productions , Willie playing with that metal snare sound Ellman had on Everybodys Going To Heaven If you dont have this, you dont have all the Todd albums.. And what a incredible performance of all three tunes. This date has always been a dispute Fall of or Spring of Judging by the outfits and bandset, this could very well be winter of And Todd Rundgren's Utopia didn't tour California in I also understand that although 3 tunes were all that was filmed for TV by Dick Clark Productions, Todd performed an entire show that night.
Wouldn't it be nice to have that!!? It is listed here only because we wanted to cover completely with all the possible cassettes in the Archive. This one is definetly only for the die-hard.
We've taken this first generation copy from the tapers Master Cassette to another level in quality. Fortunately, the taper's raw tapes are pretty good to start with.
This first set is now wonderful. The second set The Utopia Set was a tough one Due to the energy and volume of the band captured by the taper. Much distortion has been removed from these performances and most of the good phonics have been brought up front. The last three tracks are not as strong as the others, but in all, I feel that this is now one of the best audience recordings we have from Spring Unfortunately this is another audience recording show that ends prematurely.
Thus we only have minutes of the Ikon at this time - usually a 40 minute performance. The guitar playing is excellent! We got our master from Aronson, which we believe is the best surviving copy of the original taper's cassettes. A pretty bad effort to make a pretty bad sounding boot CD. If you need it, it is listenable and a keeper for us archivists Somebody may tackle it one day and make a decent edit?
So this is source 1. Note: This more complete version was previously lost from our vaults. We got a replacement for it through new trade.
The Taper remains unidentified, but this is proposed to be 1st Generation copy off the Master cassettes. Same audience recording that was offered as a Boot CD very muddy audio decades ago, but this one much pleasantly clearer, and pretty much the complete performance 'Just One Victory'- probably the final encore tune, is missing.
A couple of tiny skips in 'Ikon' but hardly noticeable. We did some equalizing to balance out the channel levels and much of the bass distortion is removed. Now it's one of the better Spring shows we have.
Vocals are very much up front on this one. Still some audience applause and clapping is present. He's done an incredible job with this full track and it is truly worthy of my collectors trophy shelf! But super rare.
Not many audio interviews on record from this time except Bearsville's Promo Interview. It's called 'Part 1', but we don't know of any other parts other than this segment. I like Landecker's comment about Todd's hair. And it's an interesting chat. No concert excerpts here either. But essential stuff. Note: Another very good quality audience gem that first made the early trading circles less the last few tracks. We don't know that the first half of the show Todd performing solo with background tapes was recorded.
But this second set is now a little more complete, thanks to a 'find' by Istvan! Having said all that, it's also important to mention that 'The Utopia Theme' which always opened this set is also absent. But I think what we now have so far is a piece of historic record and a very enjoyable listen.
And we can just dream that maybe one day the whole show in it's entirety will miraculously. Was the eyeball album still being tinkered with or what?
Todd announces they'd not done it before!?.. Performance instrumentally is stunning I feel its the best performed version of 'The Ikon' mistake-free and tight-wise Unique is the appearance of It My Name Geoff Laurenzo comes through with a decades old rare morsel MASTER Tape As is our first source, it's only a partial second half of the show, but this capture has the full 46 minute 'Ikon' performance.
I made the vocals a little more up front and the instrumentation is clear. I think this thing sparkles! And here also, we have a just a taste of the first set with some of 'Zen Archer' too. Geoff's brother Rick tells us, "I was there, with my brother, as well that night. I had forgotten how long The Ikon was. With breaks the show ran just north of 3 hours. Note: Note: An incredible audience recording. Soundboard like. This thing is grand. But set two is cut short here after 'Is It My Name' That was always a problem in those old days Very limited audience chatter.
A true 'Holy Grail'! And it's void the Commercial Spots. When I talked to Todd this year at the Atlanta Reunion Show, he wasn't of much help clarifying this. At the time a couple or three years ago my File to them was Titled Mainly because at both Shows I sat next to the 'On Remote' recording technicians. And of course my name is all over their official Releases credits. So I'm very instrumental in them being titled wrong. So shoot me.
Please shoot me. Istvan has found some additional material from his tapes of what sounds like a second source? Tunes above in italics Note: Has showed up in bits and pieces in circulation. Thank you Jon Babcock for the 2nd Gen Audience source of the whole thing! And thank you Istvan for your additional tracks from your old tapes!
They have shipped to me their entire collection of rare Todd Cassetes long story. This Santa Monica is my first digital transfer from the mass of tapes. This one is supposedly the 1st generation, and I believe that. And much improved over what I think is in circulation. The only issues with these two tapes are many tape slips and gaps. And most noticeable; The'Taper's' John Rude?
Having said all that, there were also a few tracks that Istvan Isi had upgraded versions of, that actually sounded better than the JEMS tapes, and I patched those in. And thank you Istan for that!
We think this is almost a complete show for the most part even the 34 min Ikon. Maybe missing not recorded is 'Is It My Name'? Just listen to the audience's screaming applause. So, this is my first installment from the JEMS quality collection and there's a bunch of rare quality tapes here.
And what I think we have here is an awesome representation of this Spring 'Floor Show'! And one our best out of what we have of that leg of Todd's Tour. It will actually fit on two discs. But, I like to seperate Todd's set from the Utopia set. So, I use three.
Joe did magic. And he's great at what he does. But he only had so much to work with what I gave him. Note: Last set of the Dallas show. Not bad quality audience recording. Note: Finally, one of the most of the old traded shows, it has been dutifully transferred to CD-R via Hiroshi Kawauchi.
A dramatic inprovement is had here on the band set. It really sounds better than it ever has. Really a cool show that includes a full Ikon Todd's birthday fireworks and a free form Birthday jam! But listenable and very rare. All we know is this show was recorded sometime in eary July Note: A extremely rare, but poor, audience recording as would be expected from Stadium type acoustics.
Albeit a bad recording, it is listenable. And the performance is awesome, and kind of a fun listen to Todd's banter before 'Open My Eyes' about a outside 'Pop Festival in Pittsburgh' and the 'porta potties'.
You can hear some firecrackers going off, being this is near the 'Fourth of July' too. This is may be the entire set by Utopia as opposed to the complete Floorshow - with the first set Todd solo with taped accompanyment for they were on the same bill as The Band and Eric Clapton being the last Main Act.
There's a decent audience recording of Eric Clapton's performance floating around out there. BeBe Buell also shares some of her photos on-line of her and Todd walking around the ball field. Note: Awsome special appearance by Todd on encore 'Little Queenie'.
It would be nice to have Todd Rundgren's Utopia performance this evening. He was on the bill as well. DO YA. Regardless of getting the history straight, this is rather an insignificant recording except for my collecting reasons. Incredible sound…near excellent. This audience recording unknown taper captures the 'Utopia' second set The first set being Todd solo with background tapes with precision. Love to have the whole show, but this is awesome.
His style of jumping and prancing all over the stage in response to his music and to the audience's appreciation of the musical vibrations add to his performance in a distinctive and flamboyant manner.
All the credit should not be directed towards Rundgren. Without Utopia he would be lost. They are one of the best backup bands in a long, long time. Moogy Klingman on keyboards could easily be a top notch solo performer. After a brief intermission Rundgren was back, this time without Utopia. Both tunes were smooth and firm, put together note by note with undeniable professionalism. Back came Utopia and the best set of the night got off the ground. Rundgren described the musical menagerie as his interpretation of a futuristic constitutional convention for the state of Utopia.
Rundgren and company travelled through a lavish and deeply penetrating array of tempo changes, keyboard dialogues and blazing guitar solos that sent the audience charging towards the stage, demanding more. Sons of usually ends all Rundgren shows but this time it led to two other encores. Three hours of the best rock n' roll of the summer. Without question one of the best 70s audience recordings we have ever heard. Clean and clear stereo with very little boominess to it.
The recording is a little uneven in spots due to microphone movement, but overall very clear. The crowd is fairly respectful choosing to be mellow during the tunes and going wild at the end. The show is nothing short of outstanding. You can hear between one of the songs the guys recording the show going " Sounds like you're sitting in the 15th row center Apparently, Roger's main synthesizer equipment didn't make the trip to the show.
So the band improvised. It's funny though, I can't tell anything's missing. Missing maybe a lengthy solo Roger was doing during this time? A Retro Engineered version from Paul Russo. Paul took Frank Bubnick's original tapes,converted them to digital, and utilized various Mac based professional editing software to perfect the sound onto CD.
He did a very good job. Presence is excellent and the dynamic range is preserved without the hiss. How could they do that!? I think some others may be mislabeled now. But granted first listen to most these tapes are very well done.
So more to follow.! This is a full three hour performance too. Quality of the sound aside; the band really plays their heart out for Ann Arbor! And the phonics seem as recorded very far from the stage. Todd Rundgren's Utopia performance is what has held this one dear to our hearts.
I always thought it had a lot of redeemable qualities, should somebody want to tackle it's restoration one of these days. So, these tapes are another low generation from Frank Bubnick's vaults. I did nothing more than an attended dub to digital. I'd like to just quote Joe here: " minutes! Hardly any weirdness with channel-phasing, No pitch issues.
It's got other nice factors, we all know the set of course, like a nice old 1 LCD, an early 7 Rays; We get Roger Powell synth solo interlude, instead of Bassball All solid versions!! I did my 'thing', to put it real short. Your 'library' quote paraphrasing 'the band poured their hearts out', pretty much sums it up perfectly. Thank You Warren, once again for letting me do this.
Comes in with shaky distant quality and gradually improves at about Bassball to a very good audience source entire Ikon with vocals. Note: Another Holy Grail find. A brilliant age old recording by Rick Laurenzo's brother Geoff.
