That crane is so punk rock.
In the comments: ''Where are the action shots of him killing journalists?''
Great set of photos by Ozier Muhammad.
Trailer of the new movie made by the always zany Cory McAbee. If you don't know about him
go check out his band, The Billy Nayer Show, or his other films like The American Astronaut
or Stingray Sam.
Just discovered them and now I am in love.
I find it baffling that people who willingly let their government surveillance them, police them, lie to them,
send them to war and strip them of rights - people who let crooks, bankers and insurance companies
play with their nanna's retirement money until it evaporates in a puff of sulfur - those same people seem to
draw the line and call themselves ''outraged'' and ''ashamed to be brits'' when they see a couple of young'uns steal some TVs.
Shiny things mean status in our world or so everybody's been told from birth by just about anyone and anything.
Just don't let those goods be taken by poor people. That's just crazy and unacceptable.
So wring your hands and tut tut if you must.
We all know it will eventually die down and you can go back to watching Pop Idol.
Until next time.
RIP truthteller, poet and street soldier. Thank you for all that you gave us.
If they didn't wish to print a photo of women, they should not have printed the photo at all. This violates every
journalistic ethic in the book. Even if they are a Hasidic newspaper, they're still a newspaper.
This is simply not a valid alternate way of viewing reality.
The women were there. Deal with it.
Heartfelt and touching and oh so true.
My personal favorite:
Bad luck wind been blowing at my back
I was born to bring trouble to wherever I'm at
Got the number thirteen tattooed on my neck
When the ink starts to itch, then the black will turn to red

Magnificent illustrations of Lewis Carroll's Hunting of the Snark by Montreal artist and dadaist Mr. Mahendra Singh.
Perhaps you guys aren't aware, because of all that royal bullshit going on but today is the 3rd Annual Save the Frogs Day.
Events are occuring across the globe to help save
those endangered frogs and I, for one, endorse this.
If you doubt the importance of saving the frogs read a collection of quotes from the website below :
"Frogs are really cool, I like them & I don't want them to die."--Eric from El Paso, TX"We have frogs now living under our porch and are really happy. Imagine a world with no frogs! Awful."--Jennifer from La Grange, KY
Excellent and funny site about down and out-ers from the 20's and 30's.The great Tony Millionaire does some of the illustrations.
Restrepo's co-director Tim Hetherington and a fellow journalist were killed in Libya yesterday.
A reminder that there are people risking their lives in order to show us the harsh reality of war.
The war behind the curtains: wasted lives, misunderstandings, power trips, traumatic violence...
It's a difficult yet necessary task to show the truth and we should be grateful for those who try.
Below is a trailer for a new documentary about soldiers fighting in Afghanistan.
I am so very glad that my 1000th discovery here is Richard Desjardins' website.
The songs he made have rocked my childhood as well as many others here in Quebec.
He is a poet, an artist, an astounding musician and an activist.
The site is in french.
