Personal Free Press: "It was originally at this link but was removed sometime around the beginning of 2005. The full text of this speech has been recovered and is posted here so that history will not be revised by anyone in a rather 'Soviet-style' attempt to deny embarrassing historical facts. Since this was a public speech given by a member of the US Government, these words should be considered a 'United States Government work' and is therefore deemed to be in the Public Domain according to US Copyright law."

No Photoshop Shit

Saturday, January 29, 2005


The New Yorker costs almost 10 euro in Greece and is always a week behind, but it's a luxury I feel I can't afford to deny myself. This week, John Updike writes an incisive review of Haruki Murakami's new book, "Kafka on the Shore." I came across Murakami completely by chance in 1998 (when I found "The Wind-up Bird Chronicle" in a discount bin in America) and have since made a point of reading most everything he has written. I've loved it all. As Updike points out, he is a master of both narrative and form. His books are about disjointed pasts and fragmented realities, intersecting fates, mysterious quests, lost identities, wells, tunnels, and shafts, unlikely affinities, death, sex, complacency, desire, and alienation. Of course, they're also about love; Murakami's weltschauung is endearingly, inscrutably, oriental, but nothing is as simple as love. Updike includes the following dialogue:

“We’re not metaphors.”
“I know,” I say. “But metaphors help eliminate what separates you and me.”
A faint smile comes to her as she looks up at me. “That’s the oddest pickup line I’ve ever heard.”
“There’s a lot of odd things going on – but I feel like I’m slowly getting closer to the truth.”
“Actually getting closer to a metaphorical truth? Or metaphorically getting closer to an actual truth? Or maybe they supplement each other?”
“Either way, I don’t think I can stand the sadness I feel right now,” I tell her.
“I feel the same way.”

It’s going to be a long wait for the paperback.

Soft Targets

Well, since we recycle quite a bit, we better recycle the best. Here's my newest discovery, SCRIPTOIDS. She's real good. Add link to your lists.

"Does anybody here know SpongeBob?" Dr. James C. Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family, asked the guests Tuesday night at a black-tie dinner for members of Congress and political allies to celebrate the election results….

Now, Dr. Dobson said, SpongeBob's creators had enlisted him in a "pro-homosexual video," in which he appeared alongside children's television colleagues like Barney and Jimmy Neutron, among many others. The makers of the video, he said, planned to mail it to thousands of elementary schools to promote a "tolerance pledge" that includes tolerance for differences of "sexual identity."


"We see the video as an insidious means by which the organization is manipulating and potentially brainwashing kids," [Paul Batura, assistant to Mr. Dobson] said. "It is a classic bait and switch."

Love set you going like a fat gold watch

I've felt like an old guy.
I've felt like getting up early and writing in my notebook before breakfast.
I've felt like, what's so bad about solitary confinement?
I've felt stuck again, but on a higher level this time. Like, here, the monsters are faster and meaner, but my gun shoots bigger bullets too.

I don't know.

Lots of things happening at once.

When somebody else beats you at describing how you feel, you should quote them.

Blogging e-shoes, part IV

As I was checking out Satin Pajama nominees, I came upon some post by Zoe (Belgium) regarding Blog Netiqeutte (sic). Apparently, Zoe was quite shocked to discover "someone's blog who comments here, and the entire blog appeared to be nothing else but posts from other people's blogs including all the comments"... And she was not alone. A great number of comments, attempting to define whether such an act is morally/ethically wrong, is plagiarism, is illegal or plain bad manners - or even if could/would do something about it. Someone described the culprit as "pasteomaniac" (a la kleptomaniac), since she simply copied and pasted whole posts with their comments from other people's blogs.

The whole 'discussion' was rather inconclusive but the major point on the netiquette part would be where one draws the (jagged) line: is asking permission by email a required step? providing a link to the source? simply mentioning the original auteur? Or is this a really far-fetched case, perhaps even a "cunning plan" by some bored parablogger to simply stir spirits and watch hits-counters go amok?

Why do we all use hits-counters in the first place?

The Satin Pajama Awards

Looks like the 1st European Weblog Awards are now open for your voting. Fistfulofeuros manages the whole ordeal. No, this blog is not among the nominees, so there's no money for us in advertising such.

Even if you have no intention to vote or simply don't care, the list of blogs on the nominations' page contains a good number of blogs worth visiting. Let's swap opinions.

Funny, it's only the second day of voting and the single english-language Greek blog nominated (histologion, a worthy effort) has already scored over 35% in its categories. If this sustains, we'll have to consider how blog-whoring (which I was sure was an all-american phenomenon) works in the 'old continent'.

We all know that headlines and stories aren't always on the same page unless -- as is the case here -- the same person writes both. This article ends with Mena Trott dismissing the notion that blogs will replace the mainstream media. 'One thing that's detracted from blogging is the idea that it's trying to replace journalism.

(by way of Hullabaloo)

Frank Rich, New York Times, puts some interesting pieces together. Think about it in the context of your nation.

"By applying constant pressure, in ways seen and unseen, the leaders of the government have attempted to shape the news to resemble the images seen through the prism of their own power." [1973]

"Today [2005], that dream of control is fully realized. Republicans routinely bully any reporter or organization that doesn't play ball while they feed lots of juicy propaganda to their bought and paid for media like FOX, Rush, Drudge and The NY Post knowing that the story will work its way into the mainstream anyway. They created an entertainment model for news in which entertainment values superceded civic values and it attracted a different kind of person to the field. Over time, fewer and fewer reporters wouldn't play ball because those that refused were weeded out in a form of (un)natural selection. In the end, the survivors don't even know they are biased. They are so enmeshed in this system of celebrity punishment and rewards that their own self esteem is now drawn from their acceptability to the (Republican) establishment. And each and every day the partisan right wing media pushes the discourse a few inches further to the right."

Baghdad Burning

US confirms end of WMD search in Iraq
Thursday, 13 January , 2005, 04:24

Washington: The United States has ended its physical search for weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq, which was cited by the first administration of President George W Bush as the main reason for invading the country, White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters.

"Terror isn't just worrying about a plane hitting a skyscraper…terrorism is being caught in traffic and hearing the crack of an AK-47 a few meters away because the National Guard want to let an American humvee or Iraqi official through. Terror is watching your house being raided and knowing that the silliest thing might get you dragged away to Abu Ghraib where soldiers can torture, beat and kill. Terror is that first moment after a series of machine-gun shots, when you lift your head frantically to make sure your loved ones are still in one piece. Terror is trying to pick the shards of glass resulting from a nearby explosion out of the living-room couch and trying not to imagine what would have happened if a person had been sitting there.

The weapons never existed. It's like having a loved one sentenced to death for a crime they didn't commit- having your country burned and bombed beyond recognition, almost. Then, after two years of grieving for the lost people, and mourning the lost sovereignty, we're told we were innocent of harboring those weapons. We were never a threat to America...

Congratulations Bush- we are a threat now. "

I can't quite decide if this is only a very romantic attempt to describe reality or what.

Wishing well

If there was a point in infinity
where ghosts went,
along with the hallucinations of madmen,
the lost objects,
the broken ones,
the forsaken promises,
the dreams people forget when they wake up,
the stories that never happened,
the ones that did but poets failed to record,
the children who were not conceived,
the places no one ever visited…

If such place existed,
it is there I would go to find you.
It is there I would call home.

Gott mit uns


Victory partying should be cool. And looking much better than just a few sort years ago.

"Thus: The conquered will welcome their killers. The poor will be happy to slave for the rich. The Earth can sustain any amount of damage without lasting harm. The loss of rights is essential to liberty. War without end is the only way to peace. Cronyism is the path to universal prosperity. Dissent is evil; dissenters are "with the terrorists." But God is with the Leader; whatever he does is righteous, even if in the eyes of unbelievers -- the "reality-based community" -- his acts are criminal: aggressive war that kills thousands of innocent people, widespread torture, secret assassinations, rampant corruption, electoral subversion."

“The blandness of digital culture is a problem. It’s believed that experience isn’t anything really special. And it undervalues things that are subjective. So the world of aesthetics starts to become ignored, or rebelled against, or rationalized, or just handled very poorly so you get this feeling to digital culture of hyperblandness. Everything has a blurring into everything else, and nothing has an identity or flavor.”

Blogging for Dollars

Hang Daily Kos, but not for taking money from Howard Dean.
(By Chris Suellentrop)

Journalists think blogging makes everyone one of them, but not everyone wants to be a journalist. That's the lesson from a long-running discussion among prominent political bloggers that spilled into the pages of the Friday Wall Street Journal. The Journal's lede: "Howard Dean's presidential campaign hired two Internet political 'bloggers' as consultants so that they would say positive things about the former governor's campaign in their online journals, according to a former high-profile Dean aide." The "high-profile aide" is Zephyr Teachout, the former head of Internet outreach for Dean. Teachout earlier this week blogged on the subject of "Financially Interested Blogging." She wrote, in part, "In this past election, at least a few prominent bloggers were paid as consultants by candidates and groups they regularly blogged about." [...]

Shakespeare's Sister

Suffer the Little Children

The Washington Post is reporting (link via AMERICAblog) that a Christian missionary group based in Virginia has airlifted 300 Indonesian children left orphaned after the tsunamis to the capital city of Jakarta, from their home in the Muslim province of Banda Aceh. The group, WorldHelp, says that it intends to raise them in a Christian orphanage which it, apparently, has yet to build. They are, however, currently attempting to raise funds for the project.

According to their Foreign Ministry spokesman, Indonesia has no knowledge of this airlift, and finds it unlikely that any Indonesian official would have approved the airlift, as there exists a ban on the adoption of Acehnese children orphaned by the disaster.

This leaves one of two possibilities: either WorldHelp does not have 300 children in its care, but is using the claim to pilfer funds out of Evangelical Christians’ pockets for the proposed orphanage, or an American Christian missionary group has just committed a mass kidnapping. Unfortunately for the children, it appears to be the latter.

Update: Plan "dropped". Read on.

the beauty of a dying star

Si un objeto está inmóvil (en relación a nosotros) y consecuentemente no se mueve a través del espacio en absoluto, entonces todo el movimiento del objeto está siendo usado en viajar a través de una dimensión: en este caso la dimensión del tiempo. Es más, todos los objetos que están en descanso en relación a nosotros y con cada uno de ellos moviéndose a través del tiempo –envejecen- exactamente a la misma velocidad. Sin embargo, si un objeto sí se mueve a través del espacio, esto significa que algo de su movimiento previo a través del tiempo debe distraerse.

La velocidad de un objeto a través del tiempo es, pues, meramente un reflejo de cuánto de su movimiento a través del tiempo se distrae. La máxima velocidad a través del espacio ocurre si todo el movimiento de un objeto a través del tiempo se ha invertido en movimiento a través del espacio.

Susan Sontag


Susan Sontag, morreu esta terça feira (28.12.04- 7:10 am) no Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan. Contava com 71 anos de idade. O hospital recusou-se a revelar a causa da morte. Sabe-se, no entanto, que Sontag foi tratada ao cancro da mama em 1970.
Li recentemente "Regarding the Pain of Others" um ensaio sobre as imagens de horror que todos os dias a televisão, jornais e a Internet nos trazem sobre os mais diversos conflitos em que o homem é protagonista.
Susan Sontag, intelectual de esquerda, nascida em Nova Iorque (1933), formou-se em Chicago e prosseguiu estudos de filosofia, literatura e teologia em Harvard. Escreveu romances históricos como "the Volcano Lover" um "best seller" e "In America" que ganhou o "National Book Award" no ano de 2000. Entre a sua obra destingo os ensaios "Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and Its Metaphors" e "On Photography".
Empenhada defensora dos Direitos Humanos, Sontag com Sarajevo cercada, colaborou na encenação da peça "À Espera de Godot" de Samuel Beckett.

[couchsurfing] what is: helps you make connections worldwide. You can use the network to meet people and then go and surf other members' couches! When you surf a couch, you are a guest at someone's house. They will provide you with some sort of accommodation, a penthouse apartment or maybe a back yard to pitch your tent in. Stays can be as short as a cup of coffee, a night or two, or even a few months or more. When you offer your couch, you have complete control of who visits.

House Ware

"There is such a thing as a timeless fashion."
—Mitchell Gold, Mitchell Gold Co.


"I prefer being more underground, but the last couple months I've been getting really sick of being underground. I'm ready to be popular again." — Linda Perry, ex-4 Non Blondes singer

4 Non Blondes howled their way onto the charts in 1993 with "What's Up?" and then vanished without a whisper. Formed in 1989 with Linda Perry (vocals), Roger Rocha (guitar), Christa Hillhouse (bass), and Dawn Richardson (drums), 4 Non Blondes had no problems attracting major labels, but they didn't know how to market them. The band was eventually signed to Interscope Records and released Bigger, Better, Faster, More? in 1992. Dominated by Perry's high-pitched singing, "What's Up?" was slowly added to modern rock stations and then crossed over into the mainstream, peaking at number 11 on the Billboard Top 200. The video for "What's Up?" became a smash on MTV, propelling sales of the album to over six-million copies worldwide. "What's Up?" was selected as Best Song by the Bay Area Music Awards; moreover, Perry was chosen as Best Female Vocalist and Bigger, Better, Faster, More? won for Best Album. The group toured with Neil Young, Pearl Jam, and Bob Dylan. The band recorded tunes for the soundtracks to Wayne's World 2 and Airheads. However, Perry felt that the group had become too pop; consequently, she left 4 Non Blondes. She released her solo debut, In Flight, in 1995. Perry departed from Interscope Records in 1998 and recorded her second full-length, After Hours, for her own label, Rockstar Records.
