Wake Me Up When The Shock Doctrine Ends

Wow, been a busy few weeks, and I guess I haven't had a chance to do a meaty post here since the month began. I guess I'll lead with some Septemeber tuneage to celebrate the reopening of the blather, (even though technically we are now closer to the historic month of ROCKTOBER!


Earth Wind & Fire - September


Johnny Taylor - It's September

oh and check this out..and tell me if it isn't as epic as the Neil Diamond original...

James Boland - September Morn



Shock Doctrine in full effect in Florida...

Watch a spastic college student unnecessarily tasered by thuggish campus rent a cops after asking John Kerry questions at a public forum...




If you aren't familiar with the shock doctrine concept... It's a new book by Naomi Klein that explores the vicious capitalist ploys that use the pretext of "emergency" to take away rights and subjugate populations.

I'm personally looking forward to possibly catching an appearance by Naomi Klein later this month, when she's in town promoting her new book "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism". You can read an excerpt at Alternet, and here's a short film by Alfonso & Jonas Cuarón to illustrate the hypothesis presented.




Django Reinhardt - September Song

The Billy Fane Trio - September Song

Dean Martin - September Song


The Album Leaf - September Song


The story about the war profiteers in Blackwater Security being banned from Iraq is no surprise after viewing this "shocking" video of Americans driving in Bagdhad. You can feel the love of the Iraqi people as our vehicles patrol the city...
