      [1] "Al-Jabr" on Touch <touch.demon.co.uk/ashint.htm>.
      electromagnetic noise recordings by Disinformation that evaporate as
      they reverberate and upset internal organs that deal with the
      processing of waste.

      [2] "Radio Emits Itself (REI 1-3)" on Beer Mystic
      <ninplant@...>. REI is self-referential radio,
      psycho-radio-graphies, deep statical archives, radio hypnosis, and
      unconscious radio dérives ... It has been performed 7 times and with
      each subsequent broadcast performance, the morphed mix of worldwide
      radio sounds becomes denser, deeper, and more far-reaching. REI is
      both a creative project and an anthropological endeavor. It is a
      sound document that will continue to collect ephemeral radio moments
      and will continually recontextualize them in a creative collage
      style. It is, at present, a sonic mix that allows listeners to hear
      the sounds of radio as if it were browsing the radio band of the
      entire world to generate the ephemeral and vanishing voice of radio
      as global soundscape, as worldwide tower of babel. It calls attention
      to both the under-valued nature of radio as permanent [folk] document
      while continuing to question the sonic aesthetic and content value of
      most radio. It is at heart a sounding of the built global
      environment. It will [continue to] reveal problem areas
      [ever-expansive sonic blights] as well as attempt to locate the
      auditory sectors still conducive to astonishment and contemplation.
      Radio Emits Itself [REI] requires both - or either - deep listening
      or peripheral backdrop cognizance. Here radio samples that include an
      apocalyptic sample clip of about 5 minutes of weather and traffic
      radio reports during a winter storm which I listened to with glee -
      winter paralyzing the city, the corporate machine... Co-produced by
      Black Sifichi.

      [3] "Keep the Faith, Baby" on Jubilee vinyl, 1967. If Al Sharpton is
      the Mike Tyson of charlatan politics then Powell was the Muhammad
      AliŠ Like a cross between an insurance salesman, a pimp and a black
      propagandist. Black Harlem congressman-minister who courted hipness
      and leftoid gestures all the while he was on the take as well. great
      rapper makes you realize what an anomaly an FDR liberal is these
      days. Here he does his best to simultaneously defuse and embrace
      black revolutionary talk.

      [4] "With Strings Attached" on BVHaast <www.bvhaast.nl>. WB has this
      kinetic, impatient and humorous approach to jazz and interpretation.
      Here fully expressive in explosive and whimsical bursts WBK
      inventively interprets Gershwin, Scandinavian Alfred Janson, Satie,
      and here American popular music composer, Leroy Anderson, who did PDQ
      Bach meets Raymond Scott type of witty composing. Recommended even if
      some of the edge has been polished off his cutting side.

      [4a] "Sounds Building in the Fading Light" on CGR. Coincidentally
      prescient Stephen Vitiello recordings from the 91st floor of the
      World Trade Center in the months prior to 9/11.

      [5] "In One Week and New Toys to Play" on Korm Plastics <www.kormplastics.nl>.

      [5a] "Engels" on Koninklijke PBNA. English lessons. These language
      records are among the best sources for spoken sample and absurd
      unconscious poetry.

      [5b] "Into India: A Composer's Journey" on Earsay <earsay.com>. This
      Canadian composer <www.sfu.ca/~westerka> has travelled extensively in
      India. She is one of the more interesting composer-documenters of
      sonic landscapes. The compositions deal with her acculturation into
      strangeness. From her extensive and fascinating liner notes
      [soundscapes are necessarily sycophantically tied to critical text]:
      " Despite fearful incidents during my travels, repeated obstacles and
      difficulties, countless hassles and frustrations-desipte all that, a
      strong glow, a renewed and different love of life, remains for me the
      gift I received from my travels in India."

      [6] "Archive 1" Weird, strange, worthless rough cut gems from some of
      the masters of recycling including Etantes Donnés, Mimetic, ZSG.
      Courtesy of 1/2 PanouPanou.

      [7] "The Discumbobulators" on ZZZZZ Records <sound@...>. The
      Avengers climb up the wrong warehouse ladder and are stuck on a
      burning rooftop. Leader Lian Flu Winks is purported to be a lovely
      bound-foot courtesan who fled pre-post-capitalist China and was
      rumored to be Gang of Four [CH] fifth wheel. They do soundtracks for
      films that will never be made. "Mr. Hole-in-One" is one of my top
      singles of the year. Opening line: "I killed my girl friend as she
      grabbed for my balls." It relates the gruesome tale of a petty
      criminal who seems to have confused a life of swaggering stumbling
      anti-social behavior for post-psychoanalytical victimization.
      Tarantino TV pilot guest slot led nowhere except the cover of some
      cheesy freebie gossip rags you find on the floor of the Rotterdam
      Metro. The glossy naked pix of Winks, whose real name is Woo Wei Hui,
      which means Enchantment Deferred in High Snowy Mountains, adorn many
      a butchers' backroom and have been banned from the cells of the
      Rotterdam Jail. Something to do with measurable arousal factor that
      leads to unrest. If that isn't immortality...

      [8] "Demo" on Own Label <ravijn@...>. Lotte Lenya gets lost in
      a Brechtian windmill of someone else's mind.

      [9] The Conet Project, Irdial Discs, 1997,
      <http://www.ibmpcug.co.uk/~irdial/conet.htm> offers a thorough and
      well-documented sampling of recordings of 150 "numbers" stations
      KGB, NYC May 4, 2005]: The so-called G1 Tyrolean Music Station is
      radio straight out of a paranoid noir thriller. I see Harry Lime
      sitting on a sagging bed leaning over a dour night table frantically
      scribbling down numbers being recited by a sultry disembodied
      feminine sci-fi voice. Out of the wavering signal in the late night
      hours, after legitimate stations have retired, full of white noise
      and audio ghosts emerges a robotic female voice in a surly monotone:
      "71654 15266 21500 95320 ende...". On the other end, a diligent gray
      spook scribbling down the numbers on a pad, a decoding key open at
      his side. The decoded numbers messages giving detailed instructions
      on their next course of action. Simple, low-budget, effective - and
      enigmatic. Radio at its most bizarre and mystifying. It's not even
      clear whether it's really radio as we know it. What IS clear is that
      G1 was a small, peculiar part of what is commonly called "Spy Numbers
      Stations" that broadcast at high frequencies to transmit
      alpha-numerical one-way messages to [CIA, MI6, Mossad, Stasi, KGB,
      you name it] agents in the field from anonymous illegal [but perhaps
      sanctioned] stations and pirated frequencies.

      [10]"On the Beach" on Rerpise vinyl. Still one of America's most
      devastating, apocalyptic and downright inspiringly depressing albums
      about America as funneled through the personal life crises of this

      o Weird story 1: The urban legend / gossip surrounding the emerging
      hysteria of mothers in the Chicago area who are worried that their
      daughters are giving indiscriminate and serial blow jobs as part of a
      trend that can only be described as probably a myth but somewhere in
      the realm of streaking, wilding, random acts of kindness and a
      protest against increasing levels of boredom, ennui that is only
      alleviated by extreme gestures. "Are You There God? It's Me, Monica"
      How Nice Girls Got So Casual About Oral Sex by Caitlin Flanagan,
      Atlantic Monthly,
      <http://info.interactivist.net/article.pl?sid=06/02/03/0241255>. "The
      moms in my set are convinced - they're certain; they know for a fact
      - that all over the city, in the very best schools, in the nicest
      families, in the leafiest neighborhoods, twelve- and
      thirteen-year-old girls are performing oral sex on as many boys as
      they can. They're ducking into janitors' closets between classes to
      do it; they're doing it on school buses, and in bathrooms, libraries,
      and stairwells. They're making bar mitzvah presents of the act, and
      performing it at "train parties": boys lined up on one side of the
      room, girls working their way down the row."

      o Weird story 2: A man in America is being forced to stop using his
      pseudonym "God." A READING, Pennsylvania man who signs his name as
      God may have to surrender his Pennsylvania driver's license. The
      Department of Transportation told Paul Sewell that he'd have to
      forfeit his license if he didn't bring in his birth certificate and
      Social Security card by Feb. 14. The Berks County Elections Board had
      a week earlier questioned Sewell's signature on a voter registration
      form. He had signed his name "God."

      Sewell is a self-employed bond enforcement agent, who signs official
      documents as "God" because when he catches fugitives he is always
      greeted with comments like "Oh, God, please let me go." He said his
      co-workers thought it was funny and began calling him God. He signed
      his appeal, God.

      o Weird Story 3: A man named Man in Enschede in the Netherlands. We
      know there is a truck called MAN and now there is a man named Man. A
      man wants to change his name to simply "Man". He has gone through 2
      operations thus far to have all genitalia evidence removed. He is in
      essence a human without gender. He would like to have all forms
      indicate no gender when asked to fill in male or female. But
      apparently that is not allowed in many cases. He is going to a higher
      court to protest the requirement to fill in gender. He wants to not
      just be known as genderless but he wants to be officially recognized
      as genderless.

      o Fat Americans are Overweight says report By Matthew Davis BBC News,
      [edited] The United States may be the land of the free, but it is
      also the land of the fat. In the spiritual home of the super-sized
      meal, more than 119 million adults - or 64.5% of the adult population
      - are either overweight or obese. Obesity in the US is linked to
      300,000 deaths a year and said to add billions to the country's
      medical bills. And the problem is growing. By the time of the next
      Olympics, doctors predict that three out of four people in the
      country will have a body mass index of more than 25, the benchmark of
      corpulence. The problem of obesity in schools is described by the US
      surgeon general as "every bit as threatening to us as is the
      terrorist threat we face today".

      Back in 1960, a 250-pound (113kg) American Football player was
      considered a giant. This year, more than 550 players weighing 300lbs
      or more were on NFL training camp rosters.

      The average US soldier today is more than 22lbs heavier than his
      World War II counterpart. Military chiefs say an increasing number of
      potential recruits are just too fat to be eligible.

      Shelley Hearne, head of the Trust for America's Health (TFAH), says
      "We have a crisis of poor nutrition and physical inactivity in the US
      and it's time we dealt with it." The US is one of the worst affected
      countries in the world, but in percentage terms not the worst. The
      United Nations says the global total of overweight individuals
      rivals, for the first time, the number who are underweight. In Iran,
      Saudi Arabia, Australia - to name but three - adult obesity is
      increasing alarmingly. On some islands in the South Pacific the
      svelte are close to extinction. Obesity rates on Nauru and Western
      Samoa are almost 75%. Yet the US obesity problem has particular
      resonance, perhaps because it is reflection of the modern way of life
      the country typifies, with its junk food and technology of

      The hallmark of American obesity is poverty. Unlike many developing
      countries where it is a disease of the newly wealthy, in the US most
      of the fattest states are in the poor south-east - places like
      Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. Here there are many communities
      where cheap, unhealthy yet convenient food has become a staple diet,
      while health education and sports facilities are sorely limited. By
      contrast, affluent Colorado, home of the Rocky Mountains and the
      culture of the great outdoors, boasts the country's least heavy

      Professor Kelly Brownell is head of the Rudd Center for Food Policy
      and Obesity at Yale, a body trying to stimulate government to change
      America's "toxic environment". He says the problem is the "huge
      amount of money to be made from a fatter population". Almost half of
      all public schools in the US have exclusive contracts with beverage
      companies, who supply them sugary soft drinks - and a share of the
