Our Future

The globe is sadly groaning with debt, poverty and strife
And billions now are pleading to enjoy a better life
Their hope lies with resources buried deep within the earth
And the enterprise and capital which give each project worth
Is our future threatened with massive debts run up by political hacks
Who dig themselves out by unleashing rampant tax
The end result is sending Australian investment, growth and jobs offshore
This type of direction is harmful to our core
Some envious unthinking people have been conned
To think prosperity is created by waving a magic wand
Through such unfortunate ignorance, too much abuse is hurled
Against miners, workers and related industries who strive to build the world
Develop North Australia, embrace multiculturalism and welcome short term foreign workers to our shores
To benefit from the export of our minerals and ores
The world’s poor need our resources: do not leave them to their fate
Our nation needs special economic zones and wiser government, before it is too late.
By Gina Rinehart (age 58)
 If you won’t consider my well-being, at least allow me to remember you as the neat, trim, capable and attractive young lady of the Wake Up Australia tour, rather than the slothful, vindictive and devious baby elephant that you have become.
Nice to see the American papers and blogs pick up on GR. Man you are lucky you don't have to live with her tho. Let's see:
'Embrace multiculturalism and welcome short term foreign workers to our shores' to work in your mines for less than the minimum wage and that would really help 'the bludgers' find work wouldn't it? Oh well guess grog and a smoko it is again then...and fair play to Fairfax standing up to you too!

SpaceGhostPurrp – Mysterious Phonk: The Instrumentals (Free Download)

SpaceGhostPurrp is a rapper and producer behind one of 2012’s strongest albums. As well as standing at the head of one of 2012’s most secretive and fascinating instituions, he’s literally created his own hieroglyphics of rap history, combining elements of Southern gothic literature, Miami bass and DJ Screw to forge a sonic and lyrical world dark, absorbing and unique.
His debut came out earlier this year on 4AD, who re-mastered cuts from previous free mixtapes ‘NASA’, ‘God Of Black’ and ‘Blackland Radio’. Where once these tracks were lo-fi and oppressive, the polishing process made the sonics glitter, revealing sublime hidden depths in the dark, gleaming tracks.
Now, 4AD are releasing this album as a free download and limited edition vinyl album. Free from SpaceGhostPurrp’s raps – however absorbing they are – the tracks are revealed as the mini-masterpieces they are. Standing between the functional funk of the humid body slam of southern jam music and the obsidian-souled star-eyed pieces that they are, it’s an astounding listen which counts as one of the year’s best instrumental albums of any genre.

REpost: Nataliya

Did I ever tell you about the time Nataliya took me out to go get a drink with her? We go off looking for a bar and we can't find one. Finally Nataliya takes me to a vacant lot and says, 'Here we are.' We sat there for a year and a half, until sure enough, someone constructs a bar around us. Well, the day they opened we ordered a shot, drank it, and then burned the place to the ground. Nataliya yelled over the roar of the flames, 'Always leave things the way you found 'em!'

The U.K. extreme right is undecided on who to hate: Jews or Muslims?

The battle for leadership of Britain's far-right took a bizarre twist this month when the British National Party, long the most prominent racist group in British politics, issued a detailed report accusing their main rivals, the English Defense League, of being the “useful idiots” of “neo-cons” and “ultra-Zionists.”
The report authored by Nick Griffin, the leader of the BNP and member of the European Parliament, reflects the growing split in the far-right in Europe. A new generation of nationalists is trying to shed its neo-Nazi image. They are not anti-Semitic, they claim – and are focusing their campaigning against Muslim communities instead.
The report titled “Exposing EDL,” which has been published on the BNP website along with a 48-minute video of Griffin presenting its findings, has caused a stir within the far-right. It accuses the English Defense League and its leaders of being in the pay of “ultra-Zionists"...

TRIGGER WARNING: One-eyed fascist moron!

After several months of in-depth research and analysis, Nick Griffin used his main speech at the recent conference of the Alliance of European National Movements to expose the push to hijack and manipulate nationalism.
His speech, made in the form of a Powerpoint presentation, reveals a wealth of facts that have never been brought together before.
The text of Mr. Griffin’s in-depth report on the individuals behind the stunning true story of the attempted takeover of nationalism in Britain will be published here very shortly. In the meantime, please send the link to his speech to everyone you know who cares about the future of nationalism and keeping Britain out of other people’s wars.
Hmmm! 'Months of in depth research and analysis'? Powerpoint! *sniggers* Support 'our boys' in Afghanistan do we Nick? Er exactly whose war is that one?

Beastie Boys Remixed; 100% Reggae Riddims, Dancehall, Roots, Digital Dub.
Mixed by DJ i.e. of Up-Cut Sound. Giving proper respect to the legendary B-Boys,
inna Reggae flavor. Bridging the two powerful sounds of the Beastie Boys with the Power and Sound of the dub backbeat. All remixes were performed live and mixed down in a 'dubplate style' with a hope to give an organic mash up without making it glossy and overproduced. House party style! It's been a rough year with the passing of Adam Yauch so I found it necessary to celebrate life in the Rasta way, with Music.

A Troubling Chant on the Convention Floor

An interview with Bvdub

...People who say they only make music for themselves, if they release it, are liars. And I won’t make that lie. Yes I make it for myself, but I make it just as much in the hopes that it will connect with another human being… if I didn’t want to communicate it to someone else, why would I even need to translate it into music? Of course I do so because I want to at least make an attempt to share the thought with someone else, and hope that they can relate. For me, that is the whole point of music – for someone else in the world to understand you, even to a small extent, and even for however long a song, or an album lasts. It’s a way of attempting to share your experience as a human being, and know you’re not alone, that there is someone else out there who feels the same as you, and sees the world through the same eyes. I just say what I feel, what I know, and what I believe – and any time another person somewhere in the world can connect with that, or we can somehow share a moment through that communication, that’s what matters to me. And just like life itself, time moves on, you change, and your way of looking at life changes with it – and so do my techniques, sound, and the way I approach things… and with that, I am constantly experimenting, and pushing. I’m proud of the fact that every album I’ve ever put out pushes something… in some way. It may be part of the same overall story, but it’s always a new chapter, and in my eyes, always better than the last.

In 'Shoot The Pussy Riot,' It's Not Just The Graphics That Are Primitive

...Serbia's nationalist youth group Nasi (...) has launched an online game with the provocative title "Shoot the Pussy Riot -- Death to Enemies."
The graphics are primitive and the game itself isn’t even as sophisticated as Pong -- or anything else from the early days of video gaming.
A red, blue, and green trio of balaclavas -- Pussy Riot is known for performing in colorful outfits, including balaclavas -- pass endlessly from right to left on the screen while the player tries to blow them away using the crosshairs of a particularly loud gun.
As the blasted balaclavas disappear, the slogan "Death to Enemies" flashes on the screen.
A press release on the group's website emphasizes -- in case anyone might get the wrong idea -- that the group is not advocating killing anyone. Apparently, the masks, the guns, the slogan "Death to Enemies" are all to be taken figuratively, and have nothing at all to do with what Nasi calls Pussy Riot's "quasi-satanic performances..."

Permission to Engage: Victims' families and an ex-US soldier unpick the Wikileaks film that showed US forces killing Iraqi civilians in 2007

Filmmaker: Shuchen Tan
On July 12, 2007, the US military shot several Iraqi civilians in Baghdad, an event that shocked the world when footage of the attack was later released by Wikileaks. "The attack took place on a Thursday, when residents of the area had gone to a local market," explains filmmaker Shuchen Tan. "When they saw helicopters hovering over, they ran to their houses, thinking they'd be safe in there but it was those very houses that were blown up." Permission to Engage traces the people involved in that fateful day and hears their versions of what happened.
Those killed included a young Iraqi photojournalist and his assistant, a father out with his children and some neighbours who were caught in the attack while trying to help the wounded.
"It was quite challenging to track down the victims and their families. We didn't have names, didn't have addresses, we didn't have anything," explains Tan.
"And when we found them, most of them didn't want to share their stories. They felt they had been left by the West and not treated well."
The families of the victims and a disillusioned former US soldier who was serving in Iraq around that time unpick the footage in forensic detail and relate their accounts of what happened.
