i just got sent two really interesting requesting type letters this week ( a blessed week off from recording)
i get these things A LOT
but i wanted to let you know about these ones
becuase they ring bells in my head.. maybe they might with you..
Join the Stop Global Warming Virtual March on Washington.. dont know how many of you know about this in the US
but at last the issue seems to be everywhere for you as it is in the UK. the idea of a virtual petition in this instance seems like genius to me.
(i have also just finished george monbiots Heat book about global warming... and even though he's a mate of mine i recommend it as the ideal christmas present. well... that is if you dont mind being called a sourpuss or a scrooge. lots of my mates went to see him give talk at the sheldonian theatre in oxford which was very inspiring. if a little terrifying. but then what can be more terrifying than watching the trees not changing colour when they should. ok perhaps i should get out more.
it aint very rocknroll. but i long since pissed all that bullshit away.)
supermarket demand for fish ( not that i eat fish or meat ) has meant we are fishing to extinction . what i find particularly offensive are the enormous nets they use that drag everything up and well.... just have a read. supermarkets should be made to source their fish responsibly and governments should act in the intersest of our future to regulate for sustainable fishing. not this mass production/destruction shit. i respect peoples right to eat fish. but evertime i watch the guys in the band sitting down to their whatever it is with scales i quietly wonder how its arrived. and what was destroyed and killed or thrown away to get it....
sermon over. sorry.
we had a good week in the studio last week. finally things are growing.

The most recent interview by children in South Africa, with a very cool lieutenant from the Manenburg police - check out what he has to say at the end about ' success '

Please sign an urgent action calling on restraint by China who have imposed the most horrendous crackdowns against monks at Kirti monastery and the Tibetan people in Ngaba town with the installation of hundreds of Paramilitary Armed Police, the closure of roads and the cutting off all communications to the outside world.

IT CUTS BOTH WAYS .... THE ALTERNATIVES. This is a film exposing the alternatives to the government's austerity measures; it's about the positive; it's about revealing the many options we actually have at a time when we're being told there are no alternatives

Those big drag nets that trawlers drop to the bottom of the ocean and decimate all life in their path?
And use radar while local fishermen loose their livelihoods? Just to fill empty shelves in Supermarkets? This lot are using lottery money internationally to stop all that.
Beautiful, and a little disturbing.
"is this what we're doing now?" - quick! Watch all episodes on iPlayer (for the next few days) if you're in the UK. Best british comedy in ages, so well played and written. Right up there with Curb Your Enthusiasm!

Tim Hunkin's inventions, under the pier at Southwold. I keep trying to go there but not quite making it. Maybe you'll have better luck. Go to Ipswich and turn right.
depression is not fussy about who it hits. and feeling isolated and powerless doesnt help especially when yer young and all. this site has lots of people sharing their experiences which is what us humans need in order to cope.

Found this extraordinary shop in Brighton last week. It's well worth a visit...
“The relationship between photographers and police could worsen next month when new laws are introduced that allow for the arrest - and imprisonment - of anyone who takes pictures of officers ‘likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism’.”
maybe it's about time the likes of Apple took responsibility for the manufacture of their products, as they're supposed to be so cutting edge.
As we're lifelong contributors to 'anthrophony' we're pretty culpable....but still, fascinating studies.
Look to the stars!

As they say, we don't live in the Information Age, or even the Oil Age. We all have to eat. We live in the Agriculture Age.
Download books on to your Blackberry instead of using it to send email, 'browse' the 'web' or any of the other tedious business-related 'apps'. It'll still look like you're really really busy.
This is great if you should be doing something boring for someone else.
Man, I couldn't even read this, it looked so scary. But maybe you can? Maybe it has a happy ending?
Fascinating, horrifying, beautiful photography.
Put that important work aside. Slack off. Play this, it's great.
