In 1987 Davis attended a reception in honor of Ray Charles at Ronald
Reagan's White House.
A Washington society lady, seated next to him, asked him what he had
done to be invited.
"Well," Davis replied, "I've changed music four or five times. What
have you done
of any importance other than be white?"

"It's like a chain reaction. If I lose my tone, I can't fuck, can't
make love, can't do nothin'.
I'll just walk into the ocean and die, if I lose my tone."
 "Vintage Violence" on Columbia. He has always embodied this
strange calm-before-the-storm feeling in his song. This period is
very folksy and atmospheric, even ambient but lurking beneath was a
lot of turbulence.
 "In Search of Excellounge" on Moving Coil Music
>. Cool is cool and here they do buoyant
virtual post-hysteria jazz-downbeat. The drinks are gooey and there
on me, all over me.
 Even Paris favorite JB was a yodel fan.
 French squeezebox jazzy yodeling.
 An Alpine/yodel theme done Paris 1920s style
 "Jazz a la Gitane" on Saga Jazz <www.sagajazz.com>. Warm timeless
jaunty jazz. The people second only to the jews that people love to
hate. They beg, they steal, they play and play and make the joint hop
more than any other ethnic group short of blacks playing jazz. They
are the jewish blacks of the world. The wandering global sounds of
gypsies plus jazz happened in the body and soul of Django Reihardt.
 "Par Excellence" on Philips vinyl. First and one of the finest of
the poetic singers of chanson, sometimes called the "Verlaine of
contemporary music." Came to Paris with not even enough money in his
pocket to buy a Metro ticket. Not long thereafter he was rich and
known as the best of the intelligent pop singers. Also translated
Aragon, Hugo, villon into pop song.
 "Ascenseur Pour l'Echafaud" There is no better soundtrack in the
world. This soundtrack helps define this noir film that
out-Hitchcocks Hitchcock. See it and hear it.
 "Du Jazz dans le Ravin" on Philips. They don't come cooler than this.
 "Boris Vian et ses Interpretes" on Polygram. Cool hipster
non-engagement and indifference as a way of fighting the insanity of
 "Ascenseur Pour l'Echafaud" This is one of theose insanely
obsessive compulsive records. One that has lots of footnotes and
outtakes like only jazz buffs can appreciate as they search the
alternative versions for any latent mysticism lying on the tips of
 "French Dub Connection vol. 2" on Echo Beach <www.echobeach.de>.
Great collection that goes a long way toward proving that dub is more
alive in France than almost anywhere else.
 "The Best of Verve Remixed" on Verve/Universal. Some smooth
reheated jazz classics recontectualized for a new generation of ears
both more sensitive and a bit deafer
 "Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool" on GRP/Impulse. The mid-90s
attempt to make hihop serious with the acoutrements and licks of
jazz. Guru almost made it work. The 2 genres continue to flirt but
never quite consummate.
 "Xen Cuts: Best of Ninja Tune" Ninja Tune is one of the great
labels of inventive loopy beat dis-re-engagement. Full of mirth and
mendacity, sonic appropriation, recombination, trip hop, dub and
strip hop. Never under estimate the participating musicians
that the Downing Street Memo hasn't brought down the governments of
the Netherlands, the UK, the US, Italy and whomever else is fucking
around in an aimless way in Iraq pretending it isn't about future
contracts is pretty amazing. It makes you wonder about info-overload
and the effects of cynicism as a tactic for governments to circumvent
responsibility and accountability. That the US media [other than the
usual alternative sources] has totally avoided the entire issue that
the deep throat / dnaiel ellsberg equivalent has been laid out before
our very eyes just as all good peaceniks and anti-governments
activists and leftists had said all along the small headline read:
Press Picks Up Coverage of the Downing Street Memo (June 2005) On
June 16, 2005, Congressman John Conyers delivered 560,000 petition
signatures to the White House -- including more than 360,000 from
MoveOn members -- demanding that Bush address the evidence in the
"Downing Street Memo." After holding nearly four hours of hearings
about the Downing Street Memos on Capitol Hill, the Congressman went
over to The White House accompanied by a dozen leading Democrats.
Thanks in part to your [activist] pressure and Congressman Conyers'
high profile hearings and petition delivery, the media finally began
to cover the scandalous Downing Street Memos -- we counted 1,600
news stories in Google the day after the petitions were delivered.
The Seattle Times, Denver Post, Boston Globe, CNN, ABC and hundreds
of other media outlets have been forced to report on the memo. A memo
they had all but ignored upon its being leaked months earlier.
o Hunter S. Thompson was a hero of mine [even if he was a gun nut].
He had an addled sense of righteous hipness that went beyod wankdom
and the usual logistics of journalistic prose. He rewrote how we
approach public figures. They need not be respected if they have not
earned our respect. If they are scum they should be called such. No
more Mr. Hitler, and Mr. Nixon and Mr. Bush - scumbags are flusehd
out of the brush.
A report: Thompson's ashes fired into sky -- The ashes of gonzo
journalist Hunter S Thompson have been blown into the sky from a
cannon in Aspen, Colorado. Friends and admirers had gathered for the
event at the writer's US home, six months after he shot himself
there. His ashes were fired from a 150ft tower topped by a red fist
with two thumbs - the symbol of Thompson's free-wheeling,
first-person gonzo journalism. Johnny Depp, who played Thompson in
the film of his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, paid for the
cannon. Fireworks carrying the ashes of the writer exploded over the
top of his memorial on his Owl Farm home.
"He loved explosions," Thompson's widow Anita said. The writer's
friend Matt Moseley told the BBC before the funeral that it would be
"the grandest celebration... on the planet". Sean Penn, Lyle Lovett
and the Nitty Gritty Dirt band were among those paying last respects
to Thompson. Friends were instructed to remember him afterwards with
the clink of ice in whiskey. [as a beer mystic I can really
appreciate that. There is something audio-zen about this gesture.
Elegant to say the least!!]
The cult author committed suicide at his home in February. Thompson,
who was 67, had said on several occasions that he would like his
ashes to be fired from a cannon after his death. A public event to
commemorate the writer's life is expected to take place at a later
