August 4, 2006

god, i can’t get this song out of my head.  the steel drums follow me everywhere.

if you haven’t heard it, download it, pass it on, and then buy it.

does he know what I do and
you’ll pass this on, won’t you?
and if I ask him once, what would he say?
is he willing?
can he play?

reruns all become our history

August 2, 2006

“Past events, it is argued, have no objective existence, but survive only in written records and in human memories.  The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon.  And since the Party is in full control of all records, and in equally full control of the minds of its members, it follows that the past is whatever the Party chooses to make it.” – George Orwell, ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’

we are all being lied to.  every day.  <ominous music>

muzzled.jpgit’s amazing how completely indifferent we all are about the fact that virtually everything we are being told by those in power is false.  the facts are there, but because the media chooses to ignore them, so do we.  no one likes to make waves – or, worse, being labelled a terrorist or anti-Semitic.  so we sit back and let the world leaders do what they like, as long as it’s not in our neighbourhood.

take the current conflict in Lebanon, for example.  you may have had some vague idea that this all started because Lebanon kidnapped an Israeli soldier or two.  even this excuse for war was hypocritical, since Lebanon was merely retaliating to Israel kidnapping some of their troops.  Lebanon wanted to trade captives (even though the Israeli soldiers were captured on the Lebanese side of the border, so were technically not actually kidnapped), but Israel refused to “negotiate with terrorists”.  so they decided to start a terrorist campaign of their own, and weeks later, here we are.

please, don’t get me wrong.  i do not hate Jews.  i am not pro-Muslim.  i’m just sick of the mainstream media telling me what to believe.  not just the media, but also the historians.  and i wish the United Nations would grow some balls.  because, really, this isn’t about a couple of troops.  this isn’t even about fighting terrorism.  this is about deception and manipulation on a global scale.

to really understand what’s going on in the world, we need to look at history.  the following articles give a really good brief history of how the New World Order / Zionist agenda has used the plight of Israel and the Jewish people for their own evil means.  in short, there was no targeted genocide of Jews committed by the Nazis during WWII.  there was no reason for Jews to receive protection and reparation in the form of their own country.  when Mel Gibson ranted drunkenly during his arrest recently about how “the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world”, he was mostly right – it’s not all Jews but the crazy Zionists.  Judaism wants nothing to do with Zionism, yet Zionists are waging wars in the Middle East for land that is not rightfully theirs, all in the name of the Jews.  question ’em, question Israel at all, and you’re labelled anti-Semitic – which is ironic, since the race of Semites is comprised mostly of Arabs and only a portion of the Jews.  none of it seems to make any sense, but it’ll all come together when you read the following articles, written more eloquently than i ever could.  some of them may seem long, but even if you just skim-read the first one with all the pictures, hopefully you’ll feel more informed. 

remember, he who controls the media controls the minds of the people.  it is up to us to search out the truth for ourselves.  if more people knew the real reasons why all of these wars around the world were being fought, then perhaps we could get closer to resolving the conflicts and exposing the real criminals.

i’m in love with your brother

rice.JPGah, the Knife.  this band is one of the reasons i wanted to start a blog in the first place.  i learned of them through cliptip who pointed me in the direction of their video for “We Share Our Mother’s Health”.  the video was made by Brooklyn-based Japanese animator Motomichi Nakamura, who creates bold pop-art (wonder if he’d hate me using that term) with sharpie markers.  his website features many of his artworks, including the video for “We Share Our Mother’s Health” and flash animations he created for the MTV2 website, and you can also buy awesome silkscreen prints.  go there now.  play the video loud ’til your ears bleed.

the Knife“We Share Our Mother’s Health” is from the Knife’s newest album Silent Shout, a dark journey through the realm of pain.  the title track has a video reminiscent of some great Japanese and Korean horror films.  my favourite track right now is “Pass This On” from their second album Deep Cuts.  the song is both sexy and eerie, sung by one half of the Knife, Karin Dreijer Andersson.  the video is even sexier.  it features Swedish “female illusionist” Rickard Engfors performing the song at what seems to be a talent night or some random social function.  Karin watches from the back of the room, her intense gaze fixed on Rickard while he exchanges smouldering looks with her brother, Olof Dreijer, who makes up the other half of the band.  together, Olof and Karin have released three albums and an entire soundtrack on their own label Rabid RecordsDeep Cuts is probably the most accessible, and features “Heartbeats”, the song made famous by José González, Sony, and those damn bouncy balls.

below are links to downloadable videos (mucho gracias, cliptip), as well as audio for “Heartbeats” for those who haven’t heard the Knife original.   remember to support the artists you like by buying their music, either at your local record store or through one of the online stores linked from the official Knife site.  ;)
