Everybody Wants To Rule The World

Ian Brown embarasses himself in SF, despite lack of career

Beware, the White Whale lives; Ishmael is Stoked

Anal Sex in accordance with God's Will, i.e. Just Do It!

Fuck the liberal media, for real

Fuck DeLay - if only we could pull the plug on this cowardly worm

Pat Buchanan doused with salad dressing, world rejoices briefly

Don't be a fool on April Fool's Day, unless you're a jester

Google doubles email storage, I rejoice

I am Dogster, Here Me Roar

Peeps be Hatin' on Me

Smoke More stuff

Shut Up, Sit Down

Life's What You Make It

Finally, someone with the balls to say what many 'activist judges' have been wanting to say for a long while:

"Any further action by our court or the district court would be improper," wrote Judge Stanley F. Birch Jr. "While the members of her family and the members of Congress have acted in a way that is both fervent and sincere, the time has come for dispassionate discharge of duty. In resolving the Schiavo controversy, it is my judgment that, despite sincere and altruistic motivation, the legislative and executive branches of our government have acted in a manner demonstrably at odds with our Founding Fathers' blueprint for the governance of a free people -- our Constitution."

Birch has balls, that's for sure.

You know, beyond all the superficial bullshit and we all being sick and goddamn tired of hearing about this poor woman, at the heart of it, yes, this is a sad story.
This woman lost her entire life due to an unfortunate deficiency in her body.
It was nobody's fault. Maybe it was Terri's fault, indirectly, for having an eating disorder that ultimately may have played a role in the heart attack and potassium deficiency, but there is no fault to lay blame here.

It's just a sad story about a woman, and that's all.

I don't know, what is it about this case that has the media and us riveted?
because we can all relate, that we all know something just as oddball can hit you, me, your father, your mother, your brother, your best friend, the weird guy that sits next to you at work, or that athlete next door who jogs 10 miles every day.

we humans are able to play god better than ever before, able to sustain life from a biological standpoint even though we haven't quite figured out how to revive a brain.

this story is unique to this moment in time because we have the capability to do so much with saving humans, we've come so far with knowledge, yet we have so far yet to go.

apparently pro-life means just life and that's it, no matter how miserable or awful it is. at least you have it.
never mind if you don't know you have it. fuck compassion. fuck empathy.

these fucking people who are 'pro-life.' how can anyone realistically come up with argument against life? the name itself makes it hard to argue against. it's not like i can say "i'm anti-life."
because i'm not.

it's just a big giant murky issue that has no real solution.

What It Feels Like Right Now

Johnnie Cochran is dead. Crazy Shit.
He's the type of guy you don't really think about dying.
Guys like that, they don't die.
Ah, but i am wrong.

Most common thing i heard said about him today: "Wow, I didn't know he was that old."
For the record, he was 67.
Forever associated with the phrase, "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit."
And they did.

Of course, there was more than the O.J. trial


There's a girl sweeping the street outside right now.
Odd, yes.
Though I do know that she parks her car in one of the garage slots.
Still, she's sweeping front of several garage slots next to hers.
Like, using a big broom and sweeping the dust off the street and toward the curb.
Ah, well, looks like she's done.


Music Playing Right Now I'm Enjoying:
Beat Pharmacy "Cape Town"

This is the second time i've mentioned Beat Pharmacy in a recent entry.
From Africa, South Africa, i believe.
Very rhythmic.
Several layers.
Horns that are echo-ey.
And there's some flute underneath it all.
Whoops, gotta update you for the here and now, now.

Music Playing Right Now I'm Enjoying:
Beat Pharmacy "New Dawn"

This is a great track, first discovered on a fun-filled trip home from work on I-280 with a good writer pal of mine.
HOLLA!!! (loud enough Ronster?)

where all my people at?


i currently have two open beverages near me:
1. Talking Rain sparkling water - my current drink of choice.
ever since i gave up drinking soda pop (it wasn't easy, yo...but success has been attained), i've been all over the TR scene.
not an easy beverage to find, mind you. but a fine one, indeed.
no guilt soda - sodium free, no calories, no sweeteners, no nothing.

2. Sapporo - imported premium beer, Japan's Oldest Brand (or so says the label)
in one of those 22 oz. silver steel-like cans. delicious.


Jerry Falwell is in critical condition.
We can all pray.


Today was the day that got away.

As Annie says, Tomorrow is just a day away.


My right foot hurts and has been aching for awhile.
In the middle of it, like a bone is bruised or something.
Which, i can't really figure out, since i don't recall screwing it up at all.

What could have happened?
It's a mystery.


It's a good day for Freelancers.
When has anyone ever said that before?


Speaking of good days, it's nice to see this too.
Sorry W.

On the other hand, we have a long way to go.


These things will happen.
The foibles of youth.


Good evening.

Some day your prince will come.

Yes, the World HAS gone Mad

Well, it's a good thing we Americans continue to exercise our 2nd Amendment rights.
The NRA should be proud of all the killings we've been doing lately, because it's simply Americans expressing their individual rights, right?

If the Minnesota school shootings are the worst since Columbine, why is this not as big of news as Columbine?
Could it be it's because it was in a small town in northern Minnesota, on an Indian reservation?
Oh no, i'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that all the Columbine kids were relatively affluent, white suburban kids living in a 'safe' environment.
And these kids were Native Americans, relatively poor and living in an area most Americans would consider uninhabitable.
The bias is beyond transparent.

I mean, it's not as important as Congress investigating steroids in
baseball but come on now.


Anyway, back to Terri Schiavo ... because that's REAL news, right?
Something that can pull at your heartstrings.
And we can SAVE her, right?
Never mind if we have no idea if this is what she would want, to be kept alive via machines.
I think this quote by House Majority Asshole Tom DeLay - who was called a "little slithering snake" by Michael Schiavo, Terri's husband - is particularly funny:
She is one of us, and this cannot stand.

Hmm, that's interesting. So is Congress going to jump in to every case in the U.S. of persons who are being kept alive in vegetative state but failed to explicitly write out their exact wishes regarding resuscitation?

No, they're not.
This is purely for political gain.

Don't believe me?
How about injecting some neat, heart-stirring controversial words into the debate like "Terrorism."
DeLay called the removal of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube "an act of medical terrorism."

Never mind that this case has been reviewed by 19 judges in six courts in the 15 years since Terri Schiavo had a heart attack that cut off oxygen to her brain.
They didn't know what they were doing, see?
But Congress, they surely know what they're doing. We can trust them.

So you can tell all the Republican pricks who label any judge that doesn't agree with them an "Activist Judge" to try and explain why this life is more important than the thousands of others in similiar situations right this very minute. Tell those families that 'hours do matter at this point' too, as White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Friday.

I can't wait to see the flurry of emergency legislation this spawns.


Speaking of guns, shooting, killing and other stuff that's personifies The American Way, I had a strange near-encounter with some flying bullets the other night.
I was coming home from my weekly DJ gig at The Slanted Door Saturday night, just after 11 p.m., and had just crossed Market Street via 6th Street, which turns into Golden Gate Ave. via Taylor. For those who don't know San Francisco, this area is well-populated by drug dealers, crackheads and other similar types of peeps.

Well, as i was driving through the intersection, rather slowly because of the traffic, I heard the rattling of several loud pops outside, as i had my moon roof open and my window down.
Even at the time, i was thinking "Those are gunshots."
I quickly scanned the crowd on the street and everyone i saw definitely had their eyes peeled and looking concerned and on the alert, all looking toward the same area (which, at this point, was now behind me as i was still driving).

i gave a quick glance back but saw nothing and went on my way home.

I didn't think much of that episode until the next morning when i was watching the news and learned that there indeed was a shooting at Golden Gate and Taylor Saturday night, just after 11 p.m., and that 3 people were shot.

I was like, "Holy Shit! Bullets and i were in close range of each other."
It was very freaky, to say the least, to realize that i was correct, that it was gunfire being sprayed as i drove by.

That'd be a shitty way to die, too, being in the wrong place at the wrong time and getting taken out by a stray bullet some crackhead spewed.

But, i didn't die. So, i got that going for me.
Which is nice.

Cameron Diaz and Britney hate HDTV
behind all that soft lighting and post-production touch-ups, Cameron apparently has a bad acne problem on her face. And Britney, well, she's actually 42, obese and wears a wig. Amazing how technology and plastic surgery can hide human flaws so well these days.

I wonder if it'll soon be called Flickr! instead of the not-as-exciting flickr.

Experts: Lower-sugar cereal no advantage
Now that really sucks for cereal-loving people like myself. How will i go on?
I probably won't.

Pomegranate Juice Cuts Cardiovascular Risks
But see, this is good news, huh?
I can start drinking that shit, for sure.
Though, i ain't about to start eating the actual fruit. Pomegranates are weird and full of these messy little seeds and stuff. i'll take processed pomegranates please.

Congress Intrudes In Personal Lives of Citizens

Keeping this woman alive for political reasons is totally sickening and only shows that the GOP will stop at nothing to try and get more votes out of the lemming-like Christian Right.
This is from today's Washington Post:

In a memo distributed only to Republican senators, the Schiavo case was characterized as "a great political issue" that could pay dividends with Christian conservatives, whose support is essential in midterm elections such as those coming up in 2006...

... Republicans acknowledged that the intervention was a departure from their usual support for states' rights. But they said their views about the sanctity of life trumped their views about federalism.

An unsigned one-page memo, distributed to Republican senators, said the debate over Schiavo would appeal to the party's base, or core, supporters. The memo singled out Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), who is up for reelection next year and is potentially vulnerable in a state President Bush won last year.

"This is an important moral issue and the pro-life base will be excited that the Senate is debating this important issue," said the memo, which was reported by ABC News and later given to The Washington Post. "This is a great political issue, because Senator Nelson of Florida has already refused to become a cosponsor and this is a tough issue for Democrats."

This poor woman has been kept alive by machines for 15 years. Without those machines, she would have been dead a long time ago.
Her parents need to face reality that their daughter as they knew her has long since died.

And what about the thousands of other poor souls currently being kept alive by machines?
Are their lives any less important than this Florida woman's?
In the eyes of Congress, yes, because saving this woman can apparently win them votes by the foolish, nonthinking Christian conservatives.
I realize not all conservatives think this way, but there's enough out there that do to warrant the criticism.

And here i thought all Congress cared about was the state of fucking Baseball.
The GOP is an enormous shitpile of brainless, heartless fools.
Karma's a bitch, Republicans.
I look forward to seeing you get your heads handed to you on a plate.

Whatever You Need

Last i knew, there was a war going on.
We're deeper in the hole as a nation than ever before, with trillion-dollar deficits.
We've got a crazed president hellbent on privatizing Social Security.
We've got a Congress that refuses to raise the piddly ass minimum wage but has no problem doling out billions and billions more for this so-called 'war.'
And last i knew, Osama Bin Laden was still on the loose.

And Congress is worried about steroids in baseball.

Who the hell cares?
What's the number of people in this country currently abusing steroids?
And who really gives a shit?
Who really gives a shit what athletes are doing?
Why should we care?
What are they doing for me?
Yet another nonexistent issue the media laps up like rabid lemmings.

Meanwhile, the senate just passed new bankruptcy legislation that will make it much harder for people to file for bankruptcy.
They act like people are abusing the bankruptcy thing just to get out of debt. One has to be suspicious when you consider all the credit card companies were totally behind this legislation.
Funny, a study was done and the most common form of debt that leads to bankruptcy filings isn’t young kids running rampant with credit cards. It’s people with insane medical bills. So yeah, let’s target those sick assholes, huh?

As if all that wasn't bad enough, now we're going to fuck up the environment even more for nothing with this bullshit legislation to start drilling in Alaska.
I've got a crazy idea -- how about giving incentives (i.e. money) to auto companies who switch over to making vehicles that use alternative fuel sources and/or reward companies that produce more hybrid vehicles.

No, that's useless liberal mumbo jumbo, right?

Yes, the people running this country are incredibly selfish, uncaring people.

DeLay treated for heart condition
– that’s surprising to me. I thought he had a heart of stone.

Finally, something sensible in the news for a change.
Gay Marriage ban nixed in California, the Best State
Once again, all you ‘Pro-Family’ groups look like total fools. Again (so i guess i’m anti-family then – i was spawned in a Petri dish, that’s right, i forgot…or maybe i’m a replicant with a manufactured memory. I’m actually only 3 years old and i’m scheduled to be shut down in a couple months).
Seriously, what is your problem, other than being completely discriminating against a group of people you disagree with morally?
Tell me what is wrong with two humans loving each other?
so what if they happen to be of the same sex?

Newfound Christian ‘Head’ from Korn decides he needs to Save 50 Cent through song

I feel like it's a personal letter to 50 from God, so I'm going to give it to him personally and see what his reaction is," Welch wrote. "If it's a positive reaction and he's willing to talk to me, then I'm not gonna release it, but if the reaction is not positive, I'm going to share it with the world."

3 Great Mysteries / Shadow Dancing

3 Great Mysteries Of Life

Throughout my many days of yore, i often ponder the very essence of life, the things that really get my noggin working itself into a frenzy, a thinking cap squared kind of shit.
you understand what i'm saying.
these aren't the droids you're looking for.
sexual healing is key.

as you know, i'm leading.
(currently listening to: beat pharmacy earthly delights (wave))

so here we are ... the Three (3/thrice/tri) Great Mysteries Of Life, according to me, here and now..
for all ye olde times.

    1. Saying God Bless You After Sneezing

    What is up with this?
    i mean, there's like this weird peer pressure to throw out the requisite 'god bless you' (with definite yet understated authority and wisdom behind that shit) immediately after someone sneezes. And if you don't, well, the evil spirits are going to be able jump right in to your mouth and seize your very soul. Or you'll get the Plague.
    Then, where will you be? It'll be like The Exorcist or some shit.
    For those of you dying to know the answer, here's the straight dope on the Why we do this.
    On purpose, i just don't say it.
    I don't feel the need. You're not going to get the Plague if i don't say it. I'm pretty sure of that.

    2. Females incessantly pulling down their tops.

    In my travels far and wide across this great land of ours, this is a generalization that i'm afraid rings true from sea to shining sea.
    Women are constantly pulling their shirts down further. I'm not sure if they're trying to cover up something (hint: it doesn't work if you are trying to cover something up, unless you have a shirt that falls past the bottom of your butt and if that's the case, you're likely wearing a dress), feeling anxious that someone can actually see their backside and they're not able to thoroughly check it out to make sure nothing funny's going on, or secretly long to wear a burqua, but it's true.
    Women young and old do this all the time.
    I see it every day, often when getting up after sitting for awhile or on their way somewhere. I guess it's for a crisper look though it really does nothing.

    If you're that worried, why not try wearing a longer shirt and/or pants to avoid potential butt cleavage?
    Not to say i have a problem with this. I'm not exactly offended by the recent phenomenon known as butt cleavage.

    But it is a mystery.

    3.People that don't carry ID with them.

    Why would you NOT carry it with you at ALL times?
    I'm amazed at the number of times i've heard people say as they were about to go into a bar or club, "Oh, i forgot my ID. Can you just let me in? I'm 24." or whatever age they are.
    Uh, no.
    That doesn't work. Vouching for yourself doesn't work.
    Hello! McFly! Anybody home?
    the only time i can think of when i wouldn't want to bring my ID with me is if I'm going to a nudist colony. And even then, i'd leave it in the car, just in case.
    You don't really need one at Burning Man either, but it still comes with me to the playa.
    There's a little thing called Driving that gets in the way of NOT bringing one's license.

    So yeah, astounding to me that people would actually get ready and go out somewhere and not bring along an ID.
    Maybe if you're only 17, you wouldn't need it because there's not a whole hell of a lot you can do with an ID at 17, other than get yourself into an R-rated movie.
    And what kid can't get into an r-rated movie?

And this is one of the saddest acting descriptions in the USA i've ever read:
'Appeared As Jason Voorhees. A Horror Movie Character Many Fans Regard As One Of The Most Fearsome Ever'


... back to the living ...



1. LCD Soundsystem LCD Soundsystem (2005)

i love music snobbery. fucking rocks!!
it's totally all over the place.
'daft punk is playing at my house' fucking kills.
no question.
carefully and beautifully recorded.
admittedly, almost flawless.
as hard as that is to say.
but it's just goddamn good.

2. Ulrich Schnauss "Blumenwiese Neben Autobahn" from Far Away Trains Passing By (2001)

this song makes me want to cry.
but in a totally hip cool way your dad would be down with.
holy shit, this track is just...amazing.
jaw already in a big heap on the floor.
joyously dreamy this is. the chirpy keyboards.
the pin-sharp beats.
heaven Ulrich is from.
(sidenote to DJs: mixes well with Telefon Tel Aviv)

3. Tricky "Excess" from Blowback (2001)

for some strange reason, i've rediscovered this song lately, the scratchy-throated Tricky Kid whose arrogance often exceeds his actual talent. Yet, sometimes he can still throw down a great track and this is one of them.
a real builder of a song that opens the album (unfortunately most of the rest of the album is utter shite) with a great piano line, sinister beat and, like most great Tricky tracks, a sizzling female vocalist or two to pump up the vibe.
though i still miss Martina Topley-Bird from back in the early Tricky days.

4. New Order Waiting For The Sirens' Call (released 04.26.05)

run right out and order yourself a copy of the New Order album. It's surprisingly solid, one of the better New Order albums in many years, i'd say. the keyboards are less chintzy, the guitars bolder, the songwriting better. that simple. I just scored this advance so i need to listen to it more but what i've heard thus far, i'm digging on. It's encouraging to know a band this old, formed after the demise of Joy Division in the early 1980s, can still come up with new, innovative and vital music.

5. The Books Lost And Safe (released 04.05.05)

The third album from this environmental and found sound electroacoustic outfit finds them better than ever. It's a weird, tripped-out clattery audio experience from start to finish, with off-kilter vocals supported by equally on-kilter banjo playing and odd audio incorporated into the music.
this takes a few listens but it's hard to knock an album that harkens back to when you were in elementary school, putting your heads down on your desk to escape the world for a few minutes while the teacher softly reads a story to the class.
It's That kind of fun.

Live Longer...

isn't it funny that i have to refer to the realness of the situation considering that everything we experience is (pretty much) 'real'?
but you know, you bring a camera into almost any situation and the dynamic immediately changes. People know they're being recorded and may act differently.

Oh Goody

The latest mess the U.S. has gotten itself into (it's a never-ending list, to be sure) is the 'accidental' shooting on a freed Italian journalist by US Forces, wounding the woman and killing the government agent protecting her.
Now we're apologizing to Italy and risk losing yet another 'coalition' member in Iraq (Italy has only 3,000 troops stationed there, anyway, but still).
Fucking retarded, the U.S. is.

And now the wounded journalist, Giuliana Sgrena, is suggesting that U.S. forces were deliberately attacking them.

Don't Pistolwhip Me, Argentina

Nobody uses combs anymore.

Maybe your grandpa still does. But that's about it.

What happened?

Back in the day, everybody had a comb in their back pocket.
i know i used to rock the backpocket comb. always in my right buttpocket. not sure if that meant anything but seems like it may be connected to the arbitrary notion in the 1980s that if you wore an earring in your right ear, that was a signal that you were gay. all the kids at my school thought this was true.
hence, we all thought Rod Stewart was gay.
in fact, there was some urban legend about randy Rod having to have his stomach pumped because it was overflowing with semen.
that would have to be a truckload of semen being gulped down to get to the point of having your stomach pumped, no?
even pornstars who do gangbangs don't have to get their stomach pumped.
or at least, i don't know about it.

but back to combs.

does this mean that we, as a society, have said we don't need to comb our hair anymore?

apparently not.

how was it that at one time, combing your hair was a necessity but today, if you saw someone in the bathroom using a comb, you'd be like 'what's that dork's problem? i think i'll push his face into the mirror for laughs.'
the world is a great and mysterious place, i tell you.

Punchable crafts are important

Detroit Techno is saved, yet again.
Techno fest gets a 2-year reprieve

i'm very happy to see that the festival once known as the DEMF and Movement is back from the brink and ready to serve up more delicious Motor City Techno madness.

But about that name..."Fuse-In Detroit: Electronic Movement"

i mean, come on ... Let's put our thinking caps back on people!

While "Movement" made me think of a specific bowel function, not a good image, i realize, "Fuse-In" makes me think i'm attending an event thrown by General Electric or some shit.

yeah, call me a hater -- but anybody that knows me understands i have full-fledged love and respect for Detroit techno -- and i'm sure i'll get used to the name, but just call the damn thing 'Detroit Techno Festival' or something similar.
Isn't that what Detroit is all about anyway? dispensing of the superficial bullshit, the lame corporate titles and getting down to the nitty gritty dirty techno music we know and love?

for fuck's sake....

that all said. of course, i'll be back in Detroit Memorial Day Weekend for the SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR.

i got a lotta love for the D.
