Someone tell me I am just being paranoid

Am I just being paranoid? Someone tell me I am. Six minutes and ten seconds into this interview with David Frost, Benazir Bhutto refers to Omar Sheikh as the man who “murdered Osama bin Ladin”. The interview was about who she thought was behind the first attempt on her life back in the autumn. Mike […]

Things are better this week.

from the Athens Banner Herald: Athens-Clarke police Sgt. Courtney Gale continues to recover from near fatal stab wounds, unaware of how friends, fellow officers and even strangers have poured out support for her this week. Gale almost died from massive blood loss after a man with a history of mental illness stabbed her 10 times […]

A whole town holds its breath

A brief update on the condition of Officer Courtney Gale:  Though Gale’s condition has improved, she has a long way to go, Police Chief Jack Lumpkin said Thursday. Gale lost a massive amount of blood, and doctors probably saved her leg through several surgeries on damaged arteries, according to Lumpkin, who said Gale’s condition had […]

my heart is a little broken today

The smallish blonde person in the following photos is Courtney Gale.   I bought my house from Courtney and her friend Lisa.  She’s a very sweet woman and I like her very much.  Unfortunately, this is what happened to her:  Officer stabbed while working off duty at supermarket An Athens-Clarke police officer remained in critical condition […]

Must have this…

  In loving memory of Comrade Buddha.

Sebastien Grainger may be alright after all.

I actually really enjoyed Death from Above 1979, but the Pitchfork-axis jungle telegraph was all het up about whether or not Sebastien was a colossal prick or not.    I stumbled across Sebastien’s solo MySpace page today.   I have always thought he was a fantastic drummer, and I tried to model my duo group (with Zaxx from Music Hates You, alternately […]

The Indestructible Beat of Soweto

Today I am revisiting the “Indestructible Beat of Soweto, Vol. 1” that I got in the mail last year.  Released in 1986, it was a document of the vibrant and rocking music scene from the shanty clubs and party spots in the black villages and “homelands” of Apartheid-era South Africa.   As I have said here before, […]

This is where metal is going

You should check out the live footage of the Baroness show from the Bowery Ballroom.  I dig these guys.  Their idea of metal is much closer, I think, to Can than it is to someone like, say, Megadeath.  I think it’s a lot more interesting, this sort of improvisational metal.  However, it can get a little […]

Other folks are talking…

My wife’s theatre company is putting on a fantastic play, the second act of which is pretty amazing, and heartbreaking. I dunno… something about Truman Capote’s take on the holidays appeals to me.  Gordon Lamb does a nice write up and includes .mp3s of Capote reading “A Thanksgiving Visitor.”  Good stuff.  No, amazing stuff.
