In a case of you have to see it to believe it, this mindboggling video, shot by Chris Barret, is further evidence that the theory of de-evolution is more than a theory, it’s a fact.

“Fuck you Obama.” The kid in the video opts to smack down our President while ignoring Bin Laden and Sadaam Hussein. Hate is a virus and it’s spreading.

I’m always amused by bomb-throwing economic pundit and talkshow host Max Keiser. His fast-talking, fast-thinking tell it like it is persona is always entertaining, even when I’m not 100% in agreement with what he is saying. (I also like watching his various programs (made for Russia Today, Press TV and BBC) because he produces them using the same suitcase sized production suite that I use for the DM talkshow, the NewTek Tricaster.)

When someone who puts themselves and their opinions out there as forthright as Max Keiser does his, it tends to be a love it or hate it affair. I love the guy, how refreshing is it that someone is saying something like this? Now mind you, he’s saying it on Iran’s PressTV network, but still… he’s right:

Press TV: Is the dollar in a freefall or exactly what is going on?

Kesier: Well what’s going on is you have the banks in the United States committing a financial holocaust. It is probably the worst holocaust in the last 100 years. What there doing is they’re destroying real estate values, jobs, wages and pensions. And they do this by flooding the market with more debt in the form of US dollars. As your package accurately said, the US has no reserves upon which to issue dollars; therefore, by definition every dollar that is issued is debt. This debt holocaust is wiping out the middle class on purpose. Because the rich people in America want to buy those houses. Those millions of houses out there that people are still living in. They want to buy them back for maybe one penny on the dollar. This is a financial holocaust by design. The American bankers are holocaust brokers. They should be in front of a human rights court and taken up on human rights abuses and all hung.

Press TV: Now Max, you’re saying that it’s by design for the benefit of the rich to destroy the middle class. Wouldn’t that in effect destroy the economy as a whole?

Kesier: No, because if you’re a Goldman Sachs banker, you are completely protected from this phenomenon. Plus you’re buying gold, you’re buying silver and you’re buying tangible assets. So you are not taking any risks. It’s okay to simply wipe out the middle class. It’s a holocaust. Just like the holocaust we saw in WWII. In America we are seeing the holocaust of the middle class by a few extraordinary, greedy, corrupt bankers on Wall Street; principally Goldman Sachs, J.P Morgan and the gang.

Press TV: If the US uses the quantitative easing of printing money, do you think they want to get out of this economic downfall or do they want to continue to print the money to basically put the country more into this economic slump to benefit a few? Is that correct?

Kesier: Yes, it’s a domestic terrorist attack on a sub-group; in this case the middle class. If they wanted to bring about a solution, the solution is very easy: Ring fence all the corrupt banks, put all of that bad debt behind a firewall like they did during the savings and loans crises of the 1980s. The Resolution Trust Corruption ring fenced all the debt and they restarted the economy by creating some new banks. And these new banks were able to get loans and they could create inflation, which would have the effect of stimulating the economy. That is clearly the way the solution could be offered. But this is not what’s happening. So clearly we must conclude that the bankers on Wall Street our not doing the obvious solution but the complete opposite of what should be done. They are increasing the debt load by flooding the market destroying houses, jobs, wages and pensions.

Hear, hear! An extraordinary thing to say, I think you’ll agree, but find me the fault in his logic. If the American public was sane (which it’s not) there would be rioting in the streets and vigilante justice all over Wall Street.

I’ve just been discovering all of these gloriously rough old 45s by mysterious Jamaican singer Nora Dean. I just love the production on these sides . Maybe it’s just me, but there seems to be a higher than average amount of really eccentric, even psychedelic production tricks on these songs, not to mention the mostly sexual lyrical subject matter. I could play these all day ! To that end here’s a whole bunch of them lined up and ready to lively up your day and/or warm up your night.

The hectic, haunting ritual techno dance of We Are The World

Though they’ve been around for a few years now, the brilliantly named L.A.-based avant-techno performance troupe We Are the World are finally getting their due for the extreme creative energy they’ve put into their work. (Easiest to Google “we are the world”+heffington for obvious reasons…) Composer Robbie Williamson, singer Megan Gold, choreographer Ryan Heffington and lead dancer Nina McNeely have blended driving beats, incantory vocals and vexingly ritualized costumed choreography that evokes Talley Beatty‘s work in Maya Deren‘s legendary films. Though their somewhat naturalized tech aesthetic has been paralleled with that of Fever Ray, you’d be hard-pressed to say that you’ve seen anything quite like this.

There are many ways to teach children to be careful and avoid danger. One of them involves a strong dose of fear.

These illustrations from a 1960s booklet on safety called It’s Great To Be Alive! are enough to freak the living shit out just about anyone of any age, so you can imagine the nightmares it conjured up in children. The kid smashed to bits in the pile of leaves is particularly bizarre because I can’t recall at any point in my life seeing children hiding under piles of leaves in the middle of the fucking street. Was it some kind of cheap high? The precursor to sniffing glue? I can imagine all kinds of improbable dangers like “don’t use a rattlesnake as a necktie,” but it doesn’t seem likely that anybody, regardless of age, would do anything that stupid. Though I must admit I did stick my finger into a live electric socket when I was six and as a toddler my mother caught me trying to gnaw through an electric cord. So maybe the leaf thing ain’t that nutty.
