      Think Global, Vote Local! The city of Amsterdam has already
      incorporated some of AA's ideas. For instance, ships that enter
      A'dam's harbor filled with cocoa that is harvested and shipped
      without the use of slave labor receives a
      reduction in shipping and harbor fees. Meanwhile, another issue
      pursued by AA means that foreign street
      artists can once again cheer up the city center's many squares with jovial
      and inspired street performances.

      [1] "Bip-Hop Generation vol. 7" <www.bip-hop.com> great series of
      music[s] that turns inward and inward and inward until the guts of
      one's DNA begin to shine like the spiral of the Milky Way.
      Exceptional series of electronic post-glitch works. In Wreck Top 30±
      for 2004.

      [2] "AnteNata" on Ambiences Magnetiques <www.actuellecd.com>. Oblique
      electro-acoustic poesie sonore and aggressive but elegant noise

      [3] "Redpath House" on Universal Egg <www.wobblyweb.com>.
      interstellar transmissions for the dancing E.T.s.

      [4] "qfg: A Compilation" on Parametric <www.parametric.info> Batting
      at the rain of static with a splintery cudgel. A collection of
      glitch'n'click, turbulent drones, and white noise going gray and
      drizzly. Perfect for a headphone woe-is-me Sunday, bare trees, ugly
      refrozen ice, January dark afternoon walk around your city. Empty
      store fronts, abandoned restaurants, empty warehouses, the smell of
      dust with the first drops of freezing rain.

      [5] "Oiseaux 96-98" on Reckankreuzungsklankewerkzeuge, 1999. Keith
      Fullerton Whitman is an ethnomusicologist in waiting. Excellent
      parsed and anal marginal dance music. Deformed electronic sounds that
      lead to uneasy dancing at best. Breakbeat soundscapes?

      [6] "Chainstore Massacre" on On-U <www.onusound.co.uk>. Inspired
      compilation of new On-U, the third generation.

      [7] "I.D.E.A.L.: Disque de Musique Inclassables, Décalées,
      Eclectiques, Acoustiques & Electroniques #1" on le Lieu Unique
      <www.lelieuunique.com> is an interesting collection of French bands
      showcased in all their human and inhuman eccentricity with, of
      course, mixed results. But some incredibly interesting cuts by
      mapstation, thomas brinkmann and others.

      [8] "The Ottoman Empire" on CouchFort <www.couch-fort.com>.
      Distressed beats, claustrophobic rhythms, nervous and noisy,
      impatient and dynamic, intrepid and snotty. Sonic warfare.

      [9] "Asphodelic" on Asphodel. Examples of still very interesting
      obscure and overlooked illbient wavelet in NY's downtown scene that
      fused gloomy soundscapes with dubby sounds and furtive existential
      electronica to fuse a dance music for those on the ramparts and
      frontlines of the cultural battles.

      [10] "Holding Patterns" on Deep Listening <www.deeplistening.org>.
      Incredibly interesting electro-acoustic meets chamber music meets
      intriguing ambiences by Monique Buzzarté [trombone, didjeridu, conch,
      live electronica] and Kristin Norderval [voice and laptop] with
      special guest Barbara Barg, who does a piece that reminds me of an
      urban mating ritual: singles walk their dogs in parks [dog toilets]
      in big cities late at night, in part to evade having to pick up after
      their dogs but also to encounter other dogwalkers. The way to meet,
      and this happens even in winter, is to just start talking about
      her/his dog and see what happens.

      [11] "Archive 1" Compiled by 90% Wasser. Weird, strange, worthless
      rough cut gems from some of the masters of recycling including
      Etantes Donnés, Mimetic, ZSG. Courtesy of 1/2 PanouPanou.

      [12] "Forma.1.02" on Progressive Form
      <http://homepage.mac.com/p_form>. Joy ride through unspoken
      ambiences, wearing trousers that restrict movement and transpiration.
      A convincing compilation of PF artists.
      [13] "Gas / Pop" on Mille Plateaux <www.milleplateaux.com>. One of
      the CDs I turn to consistently when I am writing or trying to find
      that happy balance between meditation, relaxation and stimulation.

      [14] "Persistence of Secrets" <www.deconstructionist.com/blacknote>
      Ethereal and righteous gloom arises gothically and rhizomically out
      of info culture. With texts by RA Wilson.

      [15] "City Breakers 18 Frames per Second" on Collision
      <www.echobeach.de>. Already one of the best of 2006. Definitely a
      fave. Perfect combination of Mekons style aesthetic politics,
      wayfaring ethnomusicology and great beats and sounds.


      Notes on scratch paper to myself: Bring oil. Yes, to lube the spools
      and gears in the old dusty recording tape deck which squeaks horribly
      distractingly while you are doing your show. The shows are now
      archived for one week. Anyone interested can email me for the
      download URL.

      * Elections on a local level are coming tomorrow, 7 March, to the
      Netherlands. I have always wavered between activist do-nothing [don't
      vote it only encourages them: Tuli Kupferberg] and cynical-laziness
      and naïve belief that voting might help. This year in prep for
      perhaps the biggest [most controversial] post-WWII NATIONAL elections
      [in 14 months] we have a local voice [Nina as a resident non-citizen
      can also vote] to tell the ruling coalition of bumbling liberals
      [European sense of the word] that the market is not holy and not an
      expression of the natural state of things in the universe and that
      humans if conscience requires can alter the market if they feel the
      need. Liberals of course are not laissez faire capitalists either
      especially when it comes to manipulating tax codes to benefit
      capitalist interests.

      Anyway, we can now on a local level tell the national government that
      hyper-paranoia and post-9-11 scare tactics and
      intolerant-insensitivity will not work here despite the on-going
      dismantling of the welfare state by the current coalition with the
      blind wisdom of being guided by American example on the notion that
      survival of the fittest leads to the most effective nation-state - of
      happy consumers, sated beyond consciousness by their buying power.
      The current Christian capitalist, conservative-liberal coalition has
      been anything but effective at uniting the nation into a kinder place
      to live. They have exacerbated conflicts between poor and rich,
      renter and house owner, natives and foreigners, students and old, car
      owners vs bicyclistsŠ

      The current pre-election shows that a pretty large majority is fed up
      with this regime taking their election mandate way beyond what was
      asked of them.

      There are some 24 parties running in the local elections here in
      Amsterdam. Some are one-person fed up with the system parties or one
      for animal rights or one issue parties like Mokum Mobiel [for more
      parking spots and more cars], the Communists, The Humanists, The Old
      People's Party, Huisje Boompje Beestje [pro-artist party that is for
      a restful, polite and civil urban life], and 15 or so more. The
      biggest party is the PVDA [modeled after New Labour], followed by the
      VVD [conservative liberals - they stand to lose many seats
      nation-wide], the Christian Democrats [Schizophrenic party of
      Christians who believe they can maintain a humane face as they come
      up with tough immigrant and eat-the-poor economic policies]. In my
      area, Groen-Links [Green-Left] is actually the 3rd biggest party with
      the Socialists coming in 5th. These are the 2 most leftist and
      activist NATIONAL parties. The Socialists have made incredible
      inroads and have emerged as pretty much the 3rd largest and certainly
      the most irreverent and aggressively progressive. I usually vote
      Groen Links as they are the most active in the area of environmental
      concerns which in a small crowded country is important. They are also
      very progressive when it comes to human and economic issues.

      However, in local elections I tend to vote for the 8th largest party
      in Amsterdam, Amsterdam Anders / De Groenen [A Different Amsterdam /
      the Greens]. They give a local kick in the ass to the Groen Links
      party because they are even more activist and progressive than Groen
      Links. What I like about them is that they are ludiek -
      prankster-based, with some remnants of the Kabouter Party [1960s
      Gnomes, yippie-like party of merry activist pranksters]. They project
      a humorous [but seriously so] image that is upbeat about the notion
      of tolerance [A'dam as gay paradise is threatened by increasing
      hooliganism by homophobe Moroccan youth], tolerance for difference,
      less visual pollution [billboards, sandwich boards etc. - leads to
      sensory overload], more green and open space, less cars, less
      pavement, more pedestrian-only streets, more tolerance, more
      affordable housing for lower and middle incomes to keep a balance and
      variety of people in the city, FREE public transport within the city
      center, more trees, more and safer bike paths, more city block inner
      gardens, more biological products in public and governmental
      cafeteria, for the purchase of socially responsibly produced city
      uniforms, more green roofs, more homeless projects that actively
      involve the input of the homeless, more involvement of foreigners in
      local neighborhoods, more child care possibilities, more mixed
      schools, more environmental and nature education at school, more
      respect for historic early 20th century architecture, against tall
      buildings in inner city, more social housing, more alternative living
      possibilities, more taxes paid by American Embassy for the security
      costs , more car-free days, more trams, a speakers corner in the
      Vondel Park, free sports membership for kids under 12, more room for
      street performers and artists, more affordable ateliers and work
      spaces for artists, more art in public space, more recycling stores
      of secondhand goods, free goods stores, more biological products in
      all stores, more environmentally safe energy production, stimulate
      alternative economies based on trade and local currencies.. Policy by
      the people not by purse strings.

      The more personally interesting aspect of this is that we personally
      KNOW 3 of the people running for office on their list. Jupijn
      Haffmans, party leader, Gay newspaper cover boy, chemist and
      environmental activist is someone Nina has worked with and he is the
      face of the party. He is currently the one AA/DG city council member.
      One of our babysitters and the eminently qualified Marieke Eyskoot is
      #4 on the list a former-film major, worked for Amnesty Int, and a
      committed humanist and cultural and labor activist at CCC, while at
      #18 on the list is Ineke Zeldenrust, one of the main people
      responsible for the effectiveness of the Clean Clothes Campaign.

      You realize what a small city Amsterdam is when you know 3 people
      running for public office. When you hear people actually talking
      about issues, squares, dog poop, immigrant policiesŠ In 16 years in
      NY I never knew anything about MY local reps, they had no faces altho
      they did govern over lots of issues.

      Anyway, that's my quick unedited thoughts on the upcoming election
      Tuesday. Vote progressive [SP, G-L, Amsterdam Anders, the Communists
      among others] and against the current oppressive regime.

      Meanwhile on the American national level:

      Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500
      employees and has the following statistics: (Be sure to read to the
      end). It Must Be the music industry, rappers, the NBA ...

      36 have been accused of spousal abuse
      7 have been arrested for fraud
      19 have been accused of writing bad checks
      117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
      3 have done time for assault
      71, repeat 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
      14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
      8 have been arrested for shoplifting
      21 currently are defendants in lawsuits. and
      84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year
      Can you guess which organization this is?
      Give up yet? . . . Scroll down,Good citizen!

      It's the 535 members of the United States Congress.
      The same group of Idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year
      designed to keep the rest of us in line.
      You gotta pass this one on!
