Hi! I’ve been absent from the Blog-O-Sphere lately due to my Protestant work ethic. I was going to say it was due to my Viking work ethic, but generally the Viking work ethic involves getting some slaves to do it while you sit around, drink mead, and vomit in people’s faces.
But here are some links that may be of interest:
Sibel Edmonds has a relatively new blog, which is a must-read for anyone interested in issues of freedom, authoritarianism, secrecy, and empire. I recommend reading this post quoting Russ Tice on the real story behind the proposed US Cyber Command.
And here is a wonderful Youtube video of three bands I love: (respectively) P-Model, Hikashu, and the Plastics. I think the last performance was one of the first things I ever saw on Youtube back in 2005 or so due to my Plastics fixation, but the rest is new to me. Speaking of Hikashu, their leader Kohichi Makigami has an excellent solo album that you can find here. The last song on it is absolutely stunning, with one of the best opening guitar lines I’ve ever heard. And don’t miss this amazing video of one of his vocal performances.
But anyway, Poetariat is not dead, nor does it smell funny.
