Let's All Go To Paraguay!

Something I never thought I'd see: My album got a 9/10 review at DrownedInSound. RESPECT!

In other news, Jeres and I recorded what we used to call a radio show and now call a podcast, and you can cop it here. Brand new music from Public Enemy, Final Fantasy, The Game, Anthony Thompson, Lil Wayne, ddd... Alice Cooper, Steve Vai, Duff McKagan and Mickey the Motorhead drummer playing The Beatles and a brand new joint from C Da G, AKA De Burgh! Boeth! Boeth!

In other news lots of people still think the US election results will make a difference.

But...

Papa George Bush, I forgot to mention, recently purchased 98,840 acres of land in Paraguay, near the Bolivian/Brazilian border. The story runs pritty deep, and should be read in full here.

The question, though:

Why might the president and his family need a 98.840-acre ranch in Paraguay protected by a semi-secret U.S. military base manned by American troops who have been exempted from war-crimes prosecution by the Paraguyan government?

Jeff Wells writes,

"About a year and a half ago (here and here), I referred to Sun Myung Moon's purchase of 600,000 hectares of Paraguay's Chaco for the stated intention of erecting an "ecological paradise." Moon's land sits atop the Guarani Aquifer, the Earth's largest resource of fresh drinking water, and also happens to be an "enormously strategic point in both the narcotics and arms trades," according to Paraguay's drug czar from 1976-89. "The available intelligence clearly shows that the Moon sect is involved in both these enterprises.""

Yo, Papa B! Moonie! How's about cutting a blonde rappist and his peoples in on a slice of this "ecological paradise"? We could sure use a bit of that untouchable Yankee Military power when the wars you lot are setting up kick off proper! And I always wanted to go to Brazil!

It's a beautiful day here in Stoke Newington by the way, and the new Take That single is GRAND.
