      Ethno-Illogical Psycho-Radiographies: 339: Anti-Nep-Fake-Quasi-Repo-Pseudo Jazz

      PTP in the ether: 88.3FM
      Where purity & puerility are synonymous
      streaming via internet:


      "It's taken me all my life to learn what not to play."
      o Dizzy Gillespie

      "Good jazz is when the leader jumps on the piano, waves his arms, and
      yells. Fine jazz is when a tenorman lifts his foot in the air. Great
      jazz is when he heaves a piercing note for 32 bars and collapses on
      his hands and knees. A pure genius of jazz is manifested when he and
      the rest of the orchestra runaround the room while the rhythm section
      grimaces and dances around their instruments."
      o Charles Mingus

      "Some people try to get very philosophical and cerebral about what
      theyíre trying to say with jazz. You donít need any prologues, you
      just play. If you have something to say of any worth then people will
      listen to you."

      o This was a show in conjunction with the recent North Sea Jazz
      Festival which always has a great and creative program, which this
      year for the first time was held in Rotterdam. With the graying and
      death of ever more of the original guard of great jazz players, the
      festival has to keep redefining what jazz is, stretching the
      boundaries and that is what I did on this episode of Wreck This Mess.

      This trend was probably most famously initiated by Guru in the early
      90s when rap was already going through a dip of shallowness and
      rootlessness. His fusions of jazz and rap and street music are now
      the order of the day with the electronica and samba fusions, the
      post-mortem duets between dead giants and contemporary pop, jazz,
      electronica, and dance musicians and producers. There is a lot of
      lifestyle music, music that forces the issue, but also soothes and
      beckons the lazing and contemplative sides. You realize how
      artificial and constructed the notion of real and fake is.
      Constructed mostly by people who NEED to toe the Purist" line to make
      a socio-cultural distinction [desperate attempts at elitism although
      the other obverse tendency, desperate attempts at populism, can be
      just as nauseating] and thus if it ain't the REAL thing [i.e., done
      by sad dying old black guys] then it ain't real jazz. But globalism's
      best after-taste is the rapid and creative sharing of cultures. I
      don't mean World Music in all of it's cuddily fusions but in a rough
      edged meeting of sounds and styles not melted down into a sad stew of
      warm Putamayo nothingness.

      o My partner, Nina's organization, The Clean Clothes Campaign made
      the US headlines, albeit [all the better?] written by an
      ultra-conservative former congressman for the Moonie/right-wing paper
      the Washington Times:

      Euro-liberals extortion of U.S. firms -- By former Rep. Bob Barr
      [Copyright 2006 News World Communications, Inc., July 9, 2006 Sunday]

      Few things would be as damaging to the U.S. economy over the long
      term as letting activist groups in other nations set business
      policies for major U.S. corporations. Yet, this is exactly what the
      ultra-liberal, Netherlands-based Clean Clothes Campaign is attempting
      to do. The Clean Clothes Campaign is a radical left-wing European
      group with an agenda that centers on forcing labor unions on a range
      of employers who operate plants in developing nations. And, it tries
      to do this by exploiting the sentiments of naive U.S. consumers who
      can be convinced not to shop with particular retailers on a whim.
      Essentially, the Clean Clothes Campaign threatens boycotts against
      companies that refuse to accede to its demands to force workers to

      Let's cut right to the nuts and bolts of this problem a major U.S.
      manufacturer based in New York has opened a plant in Turkey. One
      reason it chose Turkey is that the work force is educated, capable
      and not interested in joining the garment industry labor unions that
      have significantly hastened the demise of textile manufacturing in
      the United States. In addition, this move is good for Turkey. It is
      one of the few Islamic nations that has managed to create a stable,
      secular government with a reasonably good human rights record. It
      clearly is in America's interests to foster development there. And
      part of fostering economic development involves letting Turkish
      workers decide whether they want to unionize. So far, their answer
      has been a resounding "no" despite relentless meddling from groups
      like the Clean Clothes Campaign.

      In fact, of 500 workers at the plant targeted by the Clean Clothes
      Campaign, a grand total of eight voted for unionization in the most
      recent organizing drive by pro-union groups. The reason? Workers at
      the plant have great benefits, much higher than average salaries and
      safe working conditions. Those workers apparently and understandably
      are not interested in seeing their paychecks and hard work siphoned
      off to pay for union bureaucrats to sit in air-conditioned offices
      and make long-distance calls to international left-wing groups.

      Not happy at having their unionization demand rejected by the workers
      themselves, these groups are moving to force the employing
      corporations to create unions for their workers. Yes, you heard
      right: Some Dutch liberals have decided a U.S. firm should require
      its workers to join a labor union though they do not wish to do so.

      It is important to remember this issue is separate and distinct from,
      and has nothing to do with, any human rights concerns. No credible
      evidence of abuses in any such areas as child labor or worker safety
      has been alleged at the Turkey plant. In fact, even the
      communications sent out by the Clean Clothes Campaign make no human
      rights demands, but instead focus on forcing the U.S. manufacturer to
      hire a handful of specific workers and begin binding negotiations
      with a union that has not been lawfully elected to represent the
      workers. If human rights are a ruse, what is the real issue here?
      Simply put, survival of Big Labor is at stake. The union bosses in
      America have seen their ranks steadily shrink as years of
      unreasonable demands to work less and earn more have forced employer
      after employer to shut down domestic manufacturing plants
      particularly in the textile industry. This leaves labor union leaders
      with no choice but to expand abroad to maintain their customary

      To do this, big labor is trying to organize a campaign to leverage
      easily duped or intentionally corrupted "human rights" groups to
      smear the reputations of manufacturers in developing nations who
      refuse to cave in to forced unionization demands. The basic goal is
      to make an example of a few manufacturers by creating a PR nightmare.
      Like Jesse Jackson and other political extortion artists, these
      groups hope to then get what they want from numerous other targets
      who will pay them off to avoid having to keep dealing with them. A
      major target in such efforts is the fashion industry. These left-wing
      international groups believe companies like Nike, Levi Strauss and
      the Gap represent vulnerable targets because they are large, visible
      and keenly affected by market forces, including negative publicity.
      Moreover, their corporate leaders have shown themselves susceptible
      to intimidation, and their sales can be quickly affected by a couple
      of clueless celebrities making asinine claims about nonexistent human
      rights issues at their plants and those of their suppliers.

      In fact, the Clean Clothes Campaign is a great deal more interested
      in growing big labor than protecting anyone's human rights. Take some
      time to look over their Web site as I did, and you'll find buried
      beneath layers of European bureaucratese the bottom line is always
      the same: Employers must either accept unionization or endure PR
      attacks. If groups like the Clean Clothes Campaign disagree with
      decisions by workers in other countries not to unionize, they should
      take it up with the workers themselves. Of course, if they play fair,
      they lose. So, they try international corporate blackmail. It's one
      thing for the Dutch to practice euthanasia, legalize same-sex
      "marriage" and make mind-altering drugs and prostitution lawful in
      their own country. But when they start exporting labor extortion to
      our shores in an effort to harm American corporations, they've raised
      the stakes to a whole new level. Congress and the administration need
      to nip this disturbing trend in the bud.

      o Nostalgia-wise: Syd Barret is dead and so is Top of the Pops. Pink
      Floyd of course is one of the 10 million acts who played on TotP. The
      weird things is, is that TotP is more interesting to watch in
      hindsight: watching very old shows from 20 or 30 years ago.

      o A very strange documentary about the male [mostly American] need to
      get penis enlargements. It followed some guys who needed girth or
      length to feel manly. It's about self-image and if you can't afford a
      Hummer [penis-extension maximus] then you can get a penis enlargement
      operation. Hopefully the added fat [suck it out of the gut and squirt
      it right into the penile shaft - maybe set up a permanent hose that
      continues to feed the penis directly from the gut?]. If the operation
      doesn't go bad and make your penis go all crooked and all. Anyway,
      the point being I endured the graphic display of men getting the
      operation and men showing before and after and also men doing
      stretching exercises to extend their 'reach' and you have a show that
      you will certainly not see on US TV. I nearly fainted when they took
      a near-hermaphrodyte's small penis off in a Moscow hospital and added
      'normal' length by taking meat and skin from the man's forearm and
      'creating' a penis out of nothing and then putting the small penis
      back on like a winter cap. Yikes. The Moscow doctor likened it to his
      Pygmalion. Lots of shrinks and activists as well, one basically
      saying that men are trying to solve their own damaged lives and
      childhoods via an operation and trying to get the attention they
      never had in their childhoods. It seems a lot more painful than just
      buying a bright weird umbrella or riding a unicycle orŠ
