Stupid FAC and their foolish fuckery went and got me all popular on the internets today, leading, as popularity on the internets does, to my site going down. I was busy editing the Andrew W.K. VS Chilly Gonzales footage, and Tila Tequila wasn't killing herself, but everybody else on the internets was trying to read about The FAC being idiots, because Neil Gaiman and some people on the Radiohead message board told them to.
Actually, they still are. The only way this site is still here is via some clever re-routing of the offending post to a Google cache. Damn! (It'll be back tomorrow, BTW, so save your thoughts 'till then) EDIT: It's back!
Anyway, poor Charlie who's been hosting this site for the past few years got his little mac server mashed up by this - he recorded 136469 hits before his server got merked - so I'm moving the site to it's new house. So It might be a bit glitchy round here for the next 24 hours hours. Thou hast been warned.
So, did you cop Martin Carr's album? what did you think? Hmm?
Well. I liked it anyway. My girl's playing it in the next room. It's quite depressing actually. But then, I am emotional right now. It has been an emotional weekend. Not helped by the fact that I haven't smoked a fag since Friday. It has been very hard. Do you know how hard? Perhaps you do. It makes no sense, really it doesn't. My brain will start to play tricks on me, mocking me, saying things like, "what are you going to do now? How are you going to have fun now?" And I think, "crap, what am I going to do How am I going to have fun?"
Which is all a great big fat madness. I never had fun smoking fags. It was something I did while I was having fun. Or not having fun. It was punctuation - wake up, have a fag. Do some work, have a fag. Wait for a train, have a fag. Get off a train, have a fag. Eat food, have a fag. And so on. Often now i don't know what to do with myself, but I am relearning, I suppose. It had to happen, anyway. I was wheezing, softly, like a crippled little piece of chalk, dragging itself home after a bloody night on the tiles.
Anyway. Here's a news story.
Criminal charges against WHO,UN & big Pharma for Bioterrorism & Intent to Commit Mass Murder.
As the anticipated July release date for Baxter’s A/H1N1 flu pandemic vaccine approaches, an Austrian investigative journalist is warning the world that the greatest crime in the history of humanity is underway.
Jane Burgermeister has recently filed criminal charges with the FBI against the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations (UN), and several of the highest ranking government and corporate officials concerning bioterrorism and attempts to commit mass murder. She has also prepared an injunction against forced vaccination which is being filed in America. These actions follow her charges filed in April against Baxter AG and Avir Green Hills Biotechnology of Austria for producing contaminated bird flu vaccine, alleging this was a deliberate act to cause and profit from a pandemic.
In her charges, Burgermeister presents evidence of acts of bioterrorism that is in violation of U.S. law by a group operating within the U.S. under the direction of international bankers who control the Federal Reserve, as well as WHO, UN and NATO. This bioterrorism is for the purpose of carrying out a mass genocide against the U.S. population by use of a genetically engineered flu pandemic virus with the intent of causing death. This group has annexed high government offices in the U.S.
Specifically, evidence is presented that the defendants, Barack Obama, President of the U.S, David Nabarro, UN System Coordinator for Influenza, Margaret Chan, Director-General of WHO, Kathleen Sibelius, Secretary of Department of Health and Human Services, Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Department of Homeland Security, David de Rotschild, banker, David Rockefeller, banker, George Soros, banker, Werner Faymann, Chancellor of Austria, and Alois Stoger, Austrian Health Minister, among others, are part of this international corporate criminal syndicate which has developed, produced, stockpiled and employed biological weapons to eliminate the population of the U.S. and other countries for financial and political gain.
The charges contend that these defendants conspired with each other and others to devise, fund and participate in the final phase of the implementation of a covert international bioweapons program involving the pharmaceutical companies Baxter and Novartis. They did this by bioengineering and then releasing lethal biological agents, specifically the “bird flu” virus and the “swine flu virus” in order to have a pretext to implement a forced mass vaccination program which would be the means of administering a toxic biological agent to cause death and injury to the people of the U.S. This action is in direct violation of the Biological Weapons Anti-terrorism Act.
Burgermeister’s charges include evidence that Baxter AG, Austrian subsidiary of Baxter International, deliberately sent out 72 kilos of live bird flu virus, supplied by the WHO in the winter of 2009 to 16 laboratories in four counties. She claims this evidence offers clear proof that the pharmaceutical companies and international government agencies themselves are actively engaged in producing, developing, manufacturing and distributing biological agents classified as the most deadly bioweapons on earth in order to trigger a pandemic and cause mass death.
Read the rest of that article here. Whether you believe our glorious leaders are conspiring to kill us or not (and for the record, I would imagine they are, given they've been publicly demanding a global population reduction since the late 60s, and anyway, seriously, just look at them), they're certainly making a fucking deficit of cash out of all this hooplah. Britain alone has 130 million doses on order! Cha-CHING!
That shit right there, that was published in the New York Post last week, and is by celebrated Nazi pornographer cartoonist Sean Delonas. You can see more of his Good Works here, in case you needed proof this was no aberration. He doesn't just hate Ze Blacks, but gays and women too!
Rah though. What does one expect from a Murdoch publication? Anyway. Never mind that. I'm on Adam Walton's show again tonight, delivering my monthly address to the people of Wales the world (iplayer is global! Unless you aint got the real player lite thing).
Also on tonight's show, Aberystwyth's Georgia Ruth Williams in session, The Wedding Present and Cinerama's David Gedge being interviewed, award winning Welsh writer / poet and activist Robert Minhinnick sharing his thoughts on lyric-writing, Ben Knowles talking about the new War Child album, Heroes, Ankst co-founder Emyr Glyn Williams talking about his new film SAUNDERS LEWIS vs. ANDY WARHOL, along with stuff from Huw Williams and Soundhog.
It's on from 10pm - 1am on BBC Radio Wales, and you can listen here.
Hold tight this week for the Streetfighter remix competition, and A NEW SONG, as the secrets of The Omega Sanction unfurl.
PS - Hey Jamie Graham! Ive been trying to send you the link for the MP3s you ordered, but your email keeps bouncing! Get at me!
I was cool. Narstie was not. "You OK brother?" I asked.
Narstie took a breath.
I was shocked.
"Are you serious?" I asked.
"Yeah fam. Stabbed in Hackney last night. You not heard? It's all over the internet. I thought you'd know, you 're the king of that shit."
Which, in a sense, is true. I am online all day most days, for good or ill. But today I've done nothing but work on this comic strip Jeres and I are doing for The Stool Pigeon.
"Look into it if you can," said Narst, sounding worried. "Solo just told me. It's fucked. Fuck this shit fam, I mean, really..."
So, I had a look around. Someone on the RWD forum just posted a message under the tasteful headline "WILEY STABBED TO DEATH!!!!!!!!"
The message pointed towards the "BBC" story you can see above.
Richard Kylea Cowie also known as wiley a grime mc who recently got to number two in the chart was stabbed to death only hours ago.
Officers were called to Hackney at about 2200 GMT after reports of a disturbance.
They found 29-year-old Richard Cowie in an alleyway behind Cheshire Road. He had been stabbed several times. Police believe that an argument had taken place as shouting was heard by witnesses.
Cowie, from Bow, was taken to Hospital where he later died. Police are appealling for witnesses to come forward.
My tummy did go weird for a second, the second it took me to spot the lack of capitalisation on Wiley, and a missing coma. Dummy me. A quick look at the URL, and one can see immediate shenanigans. http://kineticnorth.com/BBCNews? Really? Chopping the end off it we can see a crappy site obsessed with internet porn searches and Torchwood fan fiction. Evidently the home of the kind of diseased mind that would get off on hoaxing people into believing Wiley to be dead of stabbings. Lord have mercy. This sort of thing is only ever funny if it's Chris Morris telling people Michael Hessletine's dead, and it's still the nineties. A pox on this numbskull, and all his miserable, redundant kin.
WILEY IS NOT DEAD. YEAH!
First off, thank you so, so much to all of you that donated to the Save Adam's PC found. I was shocked and humbled by your generosity. True stories, my tummy went funny and I got all teary. Your reward surely awaits you in heaven, which is here on Earth, in the form of some musics I'm gonna send you when the thing's back online, hopefully Thursday.
My people, have ye a warning - stay the fudge away from PC World. I cycled half an hour through the pissing rain down there on Saturday to cop a motherboard, to no effect, necessitating a further three journeys to buy a fan and a processor that weren't necessarily necessary given the motherboard turned out to be defective, and already opened before they flogged it to me, thus likely a return - a practice I hear they're into.
Dr Keef Small is taking the thing off my hands sometime today, so with the luck of the angels it'll be back in business in a few days. Meanwhile, i am taking your words of advice regarding switching to Mac onboard - I can't afford that kind of shit right now, but as soon as i can, I think I will (and I'm a take you up on your offer for Stokey Crack Help, 2tits).
For now, I'm doing all I can with this laptop of mine. It is not a terrible machine, but it can't handle the kind of audio punishment I put the main machine through, that's for sure. I'm a have a go at doing a podcast on it though (I haven't forgotten your Bloodred!)
So, with all this fuckery going on, I have been unable to upload the ATD 2008 instrumentals, which was the lats part of the remix contest. Well second to last part. I'm also gonna be wanting you to ring a number and leave messages for me to include on the remixtape. Cool non?
So, I've been trying to figure the best way to do that. It's either cop a simcard, or one of these things. Could someone with the ability to call the USA test this bugger? I can't, I'm barred. HA!
If you are ever in the position to have sex with Courtney Love, do not have sex with Courtney Love.
Also, if you are ever in the position to Courtney Love as a mother... Ah. Yes. oh well.
This Ryan Adams fuckery is so beyond the pale it has entered a whole new spectrum. I was gonna blob blog this, but it has ended up here as the blog speaks little. (Sussing what to blob blog and what to here-blog is proving a little tricky actually.)
Anyway. Ms Love has posted a pair of scary rambling blogs on her Myspace accusing Ryan Adams of stealing close to a million dollars from her daughter's trust fund four years ago, which he then spent on recording a "shitty" album called Rock & Roll. Forsooth:
does that makje youf eel like a big man ? stealing from a suicide? A MARTYRED HERO? ... as God Is My Witness Ryan you will pay back every fucking penny of this. 858,000 dollars for Rock n Roll ? wow you were living large- most people reading this dont even know what record or even artist im referring to , as your just this cult americana wanna be dylan thing-
Love goes on to explain that Adams achieved this via a business manager who applied for 74 Visa cards and 29 Amexes.
so it took 5 years YES to get all 29 amexes sorted through and an absolute time line, so WHAT? have YOU ever willingly ever had 29 amexes? NO! me neither. and when you see a passing "Guitar Center" charge on an amex if your a musician do you double check it?
NO! so i had to got o my production manager as that year was especially horrific, and we made a time line, you have NO idea what that few years was like for us, and you'll all get it soon, as its just a terrible descent into Dante's Inferno and because i simply do not suspect evil in people, so if some loser is making two albums unlikely as it seems at once and there's charges for entire outboard gear , fabulous dinners while i scrounged to feed my child...
This bit totally confused me. Was this before or after the tons and tons of plastic suregry? Anyway, that kid don't look hungry to me.
... well sorry but I'm fucking PISSED, that's that. Ive tried to "communicate" but am i really supposed to call or write or have a lawyer call or write the former "Business Manager" who applied for the 74 Visas and 29 amexes and enabled all this insanity and say "oh out of the XX,XXXXX you stole would you mind paying for some suck ass indie album" how does one do that? i had a very heavy evening but since we are becoming terrifyingly great, I'm happy to oblige you Gawker people for about oh one more millisecond. Otherwise we are amazing and I'm listening to Lanegan in the wee hours very loud, and he as always is so underrated and so fucking evocative and an American Treasure, and i wonder what hes up to. not an indie record which sucks, not anything he does. NOT TRYING TO BE DYLAN! just trying and succeeding i hope you'll agree at finding my voice its alright ma, im only bleeding Corkaroonie
Lanegan! Don't answer the phone!
Anyway. Adams hasn't done any commenting or anything. Neither has Francis Bean, to my knowledge. Does she have a blog or something? She must, surely? Poor, poor child. Back to you Courtney:
still shooting smack? hows that going for you?
"I thought about it and I realized that i might be part of the last generation that has experienced 'normal life' for some time... I try to think of positive things, you know, like I'm happy about what's been happening with my writing. But in the face of the upcoming disaster everything seems futile." Harvey Pekar, American Splendour
Personally, I have been unable to allow myself to entertain the ramifications of this new 42 day detention fuckery, other than to note to my sad self that 42 days in a hole with no charge would pretty much destroy anybody's life.
Similar with food and gas prices. The much maligned conspiracy pundits over at Prison Planet warned a year ago of Henry Kissinger's plans for $200 a barrel oil, and the ramifications that would have for the West's middle classes, let alone the rest of the world that was already bathing in shit.
A few months ago my girlfriend asked me why I hadn't writing much about world affairs lately. My answer was, all the stuff I'd been screaming about my whole life was as in-thy-FACE now as it was going to be. Everybody knows shit is fucked the fuck up, and everyone knows, deep down, why that is. What am I gonna do, say, "shit's fucked the fuck up!" Or, "told you so?" Post lists of Bilderburg attendees, as if that's gonna help my freshly redundant Dad get a job?
I said, right now, I want to be positive.
There is enough Armageddon being screamed from every other rooftop. I wanna have a barbecue on mine. If the lights are going out, I'm not gonna be sitting in the dark crying. Me and my peoples are burning fires. We will dance round them and sing songs. We will tell each other stories. We will hang on to our humanity, because when it comes down to it, that's all we have.
I believe that humanity is awesome, and I believe we've not even scratched the surface of our potential. I find that shit exciting. There's no guarantee I'll have a working computer in three weeks, let alone five years, so I'm writing, and making as many songs, videos, and animations as possible. I'm gonna do as many collaborations as I can. If you're dope and you're not a dick, I wanna work with you. If it doesn't make us rich I don't care. The way shit's panning out, either you're in the Boy's Club with The Swine or you're in the gutter with the Scum, and I know where I wanna be.
I have no future marching people into gas chambers. I've never been any god with authority and I don't do company haircuts. So you can keep your gold trimmed membership card. I'll be digging the earth and feeding my family with everyone else.
"True wealth," rapped Dead Prez, "comes from good health and wise ways." That, harmony with one's natural environment, and real human relationships. And that's what I'm switching my full attention to. Thats where I'm going. I've developed a lot of bad habbits during my tenure in the last moments of our civilization, and they're gonna be hard to break, so all help will be appreciated.
I'm looking forward to the future, whatever it holds. I'm looking forward to all the cool stuff we're gonna do together. A billion and one truly fucking awful things are gonna happen to each and every one of us, and they'll make whatever joy we find in between all the sweeter.
Hot off the heels of the Sean Bell verdict, here's some footage of a fuckwad of coppers beating the crap out of some people. News quote:
More than a dozen police officers will be taken off the street as authorities investigate a video showing three suspects being kicked, punched and beaten after they were pulled out of a car during a traffic stop.
Moral of these stories, ala Mendez, The Empire Does What The Fuck It Likes. Now Shut The Fuck Up.
Whether you think they're vying for position as the CEO of World Slavery Inc, the head position of the entertainment wing of Ye Olde Military Industrial Complex, or you actually think they want to lead their country into a brighter tomorrow (roffle), you must still not be able to watch this crazy bullshit without either a: weeping
b: bustng a rib
c: dying inside
d: spontaneously combusting
I think I did the whole list, in succession.
"You can call me Hilrod?" "Do you smell what Barack is cookin'?" "McCainiacs?!"
What the fuck is going on people?
Thanks Mark for the heads up.
