I can't really see how anyone would be happy with the new government. The mood I have picked up seems to be a mixture of amusement and disgust. Clark seems intent on moulding her party after its UK counterpart, where holding onto power is more important than political ideology. Some people seem willing to give all the parties concerned the benefit of the doubt, but I will let their track records speak do the talking. Props to the Green Party who deserved much better. Shame on the rest of them.

 

Elsewhere, it is sad to see the Pakistani earthquake quickly disappear from major news sources, while Katrina still gets mentioned. And it is like the disaster in Guatemala never happened (hope all is good with you Lara). I don't want anyone to take this the wrong way, but surely, America, the supposedly the world's wealthiest and most powerful nation, can take care of its own? The people of Pakistan, Kashmir, and India are much more in need of international attention. See Nabeel’s post below if you want to help. I shudder to think what will happen when the bird flu hits.

 

Also of note, strange to see that despite its massive significance, the referendum in Iraq is barely being mentioned, except for some voting irregularities. Instead we have Saddam trotted out to face what Gwynne Dyer a very selective list of charges. As Dyer rightly points out, by limiting accusations to the events that Saddam is charged with, the Americans avoid facing uncomfortable questions. A quick history recap, up until 1990 America had complicit knowledge, if not a direct hand in Saddam's actions, including "gassing his own people." After 1990 America was at least partly to blame for encouraging groups to revolt against Saddam's tyrannical regime, then leaving them out in the cold to face retribution.

 

Returning back to all things Basement, once again a happy birthday Nabeel. Yes he did fall asleep during Smog's good performance, and his snoring did have people turning heads. I actually did try and poke him but his slumber was deep and not to be interrupted. To be fair he did wake up for Joanna, who was fairly stunning. Her set was indeed shorter than I would have liked, but it must be hard work playing that enormous harp (stunning to watch though). Holding out for her new material with grand anticipation.

 

For the train spotters, the white label of Eric B and Rakim's "I Know You Got Soul" that Nabeel mentioned is actually off a label called Arcola (hence ARC). It is rumoured to be remixed by an artist called Brothomstates, although I cannot confirm this. I am still finding multiple versions of Jay-Z's 99 Problems, the latest being one mashed up with Prince's "Let's Go Crazy" (apparently of a project called the Purple Album). No comment. By the way, for 99 Problems on Danger Mouse's infamous Grey Album uses the Beatles' "Helter Skelter", the song Charles Manson stole. I don't think DM quite claimed it back though. Look out for the Danger Doom project "The Mouse and the Mask." Adult Swim madness!

 

Off to Welli this weekend to see some wonderful people. Apparently there is a punk fest on, but what that entails I cannot say.

 

Also happy belated birthday to Jason!

 

Peace y'all
