      o amazingly weird stuff by Prince Charming which sounds like he's
      just cleaned out his garage and relabeled all the musty boxes and
      files. Meanwhile, Sensational sounds more and more like a cross
      between a delirious Dadaist and an alien making fun of hip hop. These
      2 are on the formidable [although long ago declared RIP DOA] Crooklyn
      dub-hop label WordSound. I also received another pre-release CD from
      Word Sound, which means they may be trying to climb out from the
      steep deep dark grooves of their trademark doom dub sound and give it
      another go in the world of eternal hype and surfaces.

      o When I was in 8th grade we had a very interesting history and
      geography teacher. Why do I still remember his name - Mr. Kenney -
      and a story he told to illustrate economics: that it took, I believe
      1000 pounds of potatoes to make one gallon of vodka. This I thought
      was amazing because I saw a mountain of potatoes being squeezed into
      one bottle and the fact that potatoes seemed so different from
      potatoes. Of course, if he were to use the same example he'd surely
      be fired or sued by some American parents who would accuse him of
      luring their kids into the lurid world of alcohol abuse. It was only
      later that I learned that vodka was made of many different things
      including grape peel pulp or cane sugar or almost anything including,
      I once heard out of wood shavings and bark. The EU is now trying to
      enforce the idea that if you want to call your spirits vodka it has
      to be made of potatoes, grains and/or sugar beets. Any other base
      ingredient drinks will just have to be called something else. I mean,
      you don't see things made of chocolate and cardboard being called
      french fries or bread being made out of motor oil and yeast and
      shaving cream. No its not called bread unless it is made of grains.

      o when I lived in the 18th arr. In Paris, right in Place Pigalle I
      often wandered my way up through the whore and transvestite area,
      past the old home of Dalida. (Born Yolande Christina Gigliotti)
      (January 17, 1933 ñ May 3, 1987) she headed to Paris as a young girl
      to realize her dreams of becoming a singer and movie star. She would
      become all that and more. She like so many tragic female singers
      seemed to embody tragedy like all of her life was an opera. She, as
      one website noted, " through her music - assembled and dismantled the
      jigsaw of her life." A queen, a gay icon, Piaf, Garland, she will
      survive despite what life puts in her wayŠ Dalida became a legend:
      "Dalida was the first artist ever awarded a gold record, she was the
      first singer in Europe to have fans, she was the pioneer of French
      disco music. Michel Legrand, Gilbert Bècaud Lèo Ferré, and Charles
      Trènet. An undisputed pioneer (the 1976 version of "J'attendrai" was
      France's first ever disco hit), she even offered herself the luxury
      of beating several disco masters on their own territory, with
      "GÈnÈration 78" - France's first ever video clip - "«a me fait rÍver"
      and later "Monday Tuesday". An avant-garde show woman dressed in
      gorgeous sequin dresses slit up to her hip, forging ahead on her
      performance at Carnegie Hall in New York, Dalida started taking a
      resounding turn.

      o No headphones, no cue, no set up at home. Kind of deafly [if not
      deftly] feeling my way through a studio that always leaves you
      guessing. It's like a Dada version of an IQ test week in week out. If
      the surprising nature of its mysterious technical glitches, missing
      headphones, misplaced CDs, dull phonograph needles, cassette decks
      that screech and run at a speed not known by any earthly tape
      recorder, scratchy skipping cds, cd players that do not read certain
      'types' of cds, no indication of sound levels or of what is actually
      being broadcast until you ask one of the online listeners how it
      sounds there - usually fine, you keep going although you wonder if
      the 'myth of sysiphus is really a myth or some kind of alternative

      o Meanwhile, the proto-rockin jivists, the Hepcats, are growing on
      me. Thanx DrDr Jazz for that 3-CD set. Up Bustle & Out [Echo Beach]
      continues to impress as one of the best of 2006 combining
      globe-combing ethnomusicology with ninja tune beats and subversive
      inclinations. I played a lot of good poets today by chance:
      Apollinaire, Ozon, Dalachinsky, LS Perry and Ted MiltonŠ

      o Dalida was an Egyptian-born singer, of Italian parents, who became
      a world famous chanteuse especially in France . She grew up the
      daughter of an opera violinist. She took singing lessons and in 1954
      she won the Miss Egypt beauty contest and immediately left for Paris,
      to pursue her muse in the cinema and music in music halls and
      cabarets, singing in French, Italian, Arabic and other languages inc.
      German. Her second single "Bambino"[1956] brought her to the
      attention of a broad public. In 1957, she appeared at the Paris
      Olympia as the opening act for Charles Aznavour and later the same
      year for Gilbert Bécaud. Dalida recorded 500 French songs, 200 of
      which were translated into Italian, and 300 into other languages. She
      sold over 150 million albums world-wide and had 70 gold records.

      Despite her fame and talents, her personal life was difficult -
      reminding some of Judy Garland - tragic. When she left her first
      husband for a painter he ended up committing suicide with a gun. Her
      new Italian lover and singer, Luigi Tenco also took his own life and
      Dalida then attempted suicide for the first time. She began cavorting
      with the flamboyant Comte de St Germain until he too committed
      suicide in July 1983. She recovered from all these tragedies and
      evolved from a chanteuse to do pop and euro-rock and roll and even
      psychedelic garage rock eventually emerging as a full-fledged disco
      star, scoring the first-ever disco hit in France. She also went onto
      record a long list of new-wavish type songs as well. But she drifted
      in and out of soul-searching traveling to Nepal and studying Hinduism.

      On May 3, 1987 Dalida died as a result of an overdose of sleeping
      pills leaving behind a suicide note that said: "Life has become
      unbearable ... forgive me."

      Dalida is buried in the Cimetière de Montmartre, Paris, her gilded
      life-size statue marks her plot not far from where she lived and
      where I passed by the little bronze plaque marking the place where
      she spent her last years. In 1997, the corner of the rues Girardon
      and Abreuvoir in the Butte Montmartre in Paris was inaugurated as
      "Place Dalida" and a life-size bust to her memory was erected at that
      location. In 2001, the French government honored her memory with a
      postage stamp. The weird thing was in all the time I lived there,
      passed by there, moved on and I never ever was interested to listen
      to her music, then in paris, after in NY until now although her
      image, her portrait did come back to me from time to time. Weird: it
      was as if the collective memory of others and my sometime being
      reminded of how she died was enough.

      o Special on Dutch TV on Tianamen Square, particularly focusing on
      what happened to the "tank man", the man who stopped the Chinese
      tanks by standing in front of them. He has never been heard from
      since. Speculation ranges from execution to him being whisked away by
      sympathists and that he remains in hiding. Another part of the
      documentary dealt with contemporary awareness by young students in
      college in China. A range of students were shown pix of Tianamen
      Square events and not a single student had any idea of what they were
      looking at. One student said with a smile, "Is this an art work?" The
      show then went on to a more insidious aspect of China and its
      influence on the biggest IT companies in the world: Yahoo, Microsoft,
      Cisco Systems and Google have all agreed to censor their services and
      information that Chinese people can access. They have all made pacts
      with the devil offering censorship for business deals. Google execs
      claim they did not have a choice. Meanwhile, Yahoo and cisco have
      gone even further, offering to cooperate with Chinese authorities by
      thus far turning in one activist who broke the law when he tried to
      pass on information to people in China.

      o In my novel, Beer Mystic, a man puts out streetlights in order to
      bring back the night. I talso deals with heliotropic nuts, sun
      fanatics, tanners extraordinaire - with discussions ensuing as to
      what is better for a human: no sun, some sun, a lot of sun, never
      enough sun. A new report by WHO notes that over exposure to the sun
      kills 60,000 [too much ultraviolet] annually. Altho, on the other
      end, we don't know how many people do away with themselves from the
      psychological debilitating effects of under-exposure to sunlight -
      see Finland, Alaska and the rates of severe depression up there
      compared to other more normally lit countriesŠ

      o I read about a similar incident not long ago where a woman
      somewhere in the US swallowed her mobile phone to prevent her partner
      from reading her messages. And now there is a story about a woman in
      Missouri [what, it's not in Florida where all crazy American stories
      sometimes seem to emanate from] who was forced to swallow her by her
      jealous boyfriend. Altho the man's lawyer claims she swallowed the
      phone herself to avoid having her phone calls monitored by the
      boyfriend. Upon removal of the phone in a hospital she said something
      like if I wanted to prevent him from reading my messages I would have
      just thrown the phone out the window.

      o You read about the man arrested for singing a Clash song in a
      London taxi on the way to the airport well now a British man has been
      arrested for citing George Orwell in public under a kind of British
      equivalent of the Patriot Act that is supposed to handle suspicious
      terrorist like activities. He supposedly was carrying a placard near
      a Whitehall UK government office with a text by Orwell that stated:
      "In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary

      o the Rolling Stones are touring and anyone who thinks these guys are
      cool are in for a surprise. They not only have their own goon squad
      busting people for selling unlicensed [tongue corp. logo] goods but
      they are now in the middle of the most lucrative r&r tour in the
      history of rock of music of mankind. Something like the equivalent of
      the GNP of 10 nations in Africa. Did I hear something like $150
      million? No wonder: ticket prices range from 79 to 150+ euros per

      o One aspect of pop music [some still call it rock and roll!] that I
      am understanding less and less is the fascination with guitar bands.
      It's a kind of retro nostalgia for Beatlemania, for the 60s, the 70s
      when guitars could destroy entire nations, reputations. What have
      you. And now the Brits are doing what they do best - not necessarily
      rock [although they've done some] but hype, hype the next best thing
      to actually making good music. The Arctic Monkeys, the Kaiser Chiefs.
      I don't there is a load of other ones with coifs of carefully
      sculptured insouciant disarray and sounds and vocals that resemble
      the best wannabe poser bands from the 80s. The sound is uncatchy
      [from pop standpoint], uninteresting [from a point of view of
      progressive electronic and adventurous sound] and just plain boring
      [from the Stooges standpoint of DOING something, exploding something,
      destroying something]. Wankin' product placement for white people
      while rap continues its slide into a hedonistic tautology where
      street rappers on the level of 50 cent procclaim their affinity and
      solidarity with George Bush.
