Weekly Media Recomended by the Management

Today I managed much to little work on the thesis beast. Meetings kept cropping up all over the place. So this is short and sweet and I am going to try and clean up a couple of pages of a chapter draft before I fall into bed for the dream ship takes me away for 8 hours....tomorrow is Saturday oh sweet sweet day!

Here is some good stuff for the week from the net:

New Acid Mothers Temple
Kawabata's and his Mothers are back, this time in full on Melting Paraiso UFO form. As heavy as his recent work with the Cosmic Inferno, the man hasn't lost a step over the course of who knows how many releases in several configurations and numerous side projects. It's hard not to like a release that contains a song called "Cosmic Soul Death Disco" that clocks in around 28 min and change, but the rest of this release is no slouch either. Another long piece starts the album off like a slow trudge to the center of a volcano before the aforementioned CSDD triggers the explosion of molten rock. The band cap Glorify Astrological Martyrdom with a powerful and by AMT standards very short song that gets to the fury without hesitation and though there's no room for an 8 minute solo it seems to live up to expectations rather nicely. This is actually one of the more consistent albums I've heard out of the last couple the band has released, building to a nice momentum without losing a step along the way.

Psychedelic Adventure: Psychedelic Shamans Of The Amazon
Here are some classic documentaries on Amazonian Shamanism

The Entheogenic Evolution Podcasts
Trance, shamanism, music, healing. Its all here in nice podcast form.

Forever Blowing Bubbles: A Walking Tour with Peter Linebaugh and Fabian Tompsett (video)
A walking tour and talk in the City of London with Peter Linebaugh and Fabian Tompsett, taking in landmarks of capitalist crisis past and present. Organised by Mute magazine http://metamute.org . 12 November, 2008.

HANSON RECORDS
This one looks like a winner. Really cool podcast from ex-Wolf Eyes Aaron Dilloway, with 20 layers of tape-hiss…always, featuring William Burroughs explaining how audio tape cut-ups can tell the future and Mick Jagger wilding on Moog synthesizer for Kenneth Anger’s 1969 film, ‘Invocation of My Demon Brother.” Unfortunatley there are only a couple of them, but certainly worth the listen.

This book is an attempt to tell the story of the battles over intellectual property, the range wars of the information age. I want to convince you that intellectual property is important, that it is something that any informed citizen needs to know a little about, in the same way that any informed citizen needs to know at least something about the environment, or civil rights, or the way the economy works. I will try my best to be fair, to explain the issues and give both sides of the argument. Still, you should know that this is more than mere description. In the pages that follow, I try to show that current intellectual property policy is overwhelmingly and tragically bad in ways that everyone, and not just lawyers or economists, should care about.


Keep on shining in the sunshine.
