Telling anyone who uses a sunsinger to f off is pathetic and wld expect more class from a streamer. He'd kick my butt any day butt at least I'm not a cry baby. Comment Reply Start Topic.

Untitled - Spigit - Eyes Ears & Beers (CDr)


While I am sure that most people can visualize in their minds what might be meant by a prick ear or a drop ear on a dog, they might have Untitled - Spigit - Eyes Ears & Beers (CDr) more difficulty visualizing what is meant by a rose ear or a button ear when it refers to their canine pet. So let me give you a bit of a visual glossary of common terms used to describe the shape of a dog's ear.

The basic shape of the canine ear which was inherited from his wild ancestors such as the Wolf depicted here is the prick or upright ear. Prick or upright ears are very common in dogs. Their main characteristics are that they are sharp, pointed and stand erect. They can be found in most of the Nordic breeds such as the Malamute here, the Siberian husky, the Samoyed and so forth. Sometimes prick ears are surgically created by the process called "ear cropping" in order to turn a drop ear into a pointed prick ear that stands upright.

Untitled - Spigit - Eyes Ears & Beers (CDr) in which this is commonly Untitled - Spigit - Eyes Ears & Beers (CDr) include the Great Dane shown here and also Doberman Pinschers and Boxers. It is not unusual to refer to dogs that have had this surgery as having cropped ears rather than prick ears. Through selective breeding, humans have modified the pointed prick ear shape of the wolf into a variety of different shapes.

Untitled - Spigit - Eyes Ears & Beers (CDr) example, the French bulldog shown here has large upright ears with the sharp tip altered into a smooth curve producing what dog people call blunt ears or rounded tip ears. Ears that are upright and large in proportion to the size of the head are called bat ears. There is often a large and V. Four inputs, with voltage gain at x10, x20, x30, and x Headphone amplifier.

This membrane is covered in hair cells, which come in two types. The so-called inner hair cells convert pressure waves within the fluid into electrical signals the brain can interpret.

However, the outer hair cells act like mechanical amplifiers. When struck by a pressure wave, the cells themselves begin to vibrate at the same frequency, thereby boosting the wave as it passes. So far, I've concentrated on assembling a body of relatively easy material that would be sufficient for the first semester or two of a college-level musicianship course.

There is a small amount of didactic text, but if you're going to use the book for self-instruction, you'll need some background in basic music theory, and preferably access to someone knowledgeable to provide guidance.

It condemns to the Buddhist hell the man "who has accosted another's acolyte and wickedly violated him"aa and he "who commits the wickedness of loving and violating [another] man. The phrase "tanin no chigo,'' could mean "another acolyte," "another's acolyte," or perhaps simply "someone's child.

But this is unlikely, as the second expression employed seems to condemn homosexual acts as such. It is certain that Genshin was drawing Album) Sanskrit and Chinese scriptures such as the Saddharma-smrti-upasthana, cited previously that emphasize the sinfulness of male-male sexual contact. But the image is highly antipathetic, and it seems probable that the Kukai- Mount Koya legend was developed by monks or laymen long after the holy man's death simply to legitimatize nanshoku in the face of earlier Buddhist condemnation.

The legend seems to date no further back than the Muromachi period; the oldest reference I have found is in a poem by the celebrated Zen monk and poet Ikkyu How, given the strong anti-homosexual biases of continental Buddhist texts and of Genshin's work based upon them, do we explain the emergence of a conspicuous monastic homosexual culture? Japan's distance from other centers of Buddhist culture and the court's decision early in the ninth century to discontinue routine contact with China may have reduced the influence of texts that condemned male-male sex.

If the traditional Buddhist hostility to male-male sex could thus be neutralized in Japan, other religious and philosophical schools could pose no more challenge there than in China or Korea. Had these traditions been hostile to nanshoku, they would probably have encouraged Buddhist opposition to the phenomenon, as Buddhism in Japan developed a close symbiotic relationship with the native Shinto cult and served as the vehicle for Confucian and other continental learning.

But such hostility did not exist. The native cult, as noted, had virtually nothing to say on the subject; it simply regarded "sexual love [as] an unconditional good. Marriages seem to have been contracted freely and informally and could be readily dissolved. Saikaku pointed out that the first three generations of deities, described in the eighth-century Nihongi chronicle, included no females: "This," he declared, "represents the historical origin of shud.

Japanese Confucian scholars were also largely unconcerned with the issue of homosexuality. The monk Gen'ewho expounded upon Confucian classics to Emperor Go-Daigo, was himself sexually attracted to boys, and Tokugawa literature even depicts professional Confucian scholarscc patronizing male prostitutes. Confucian writers such as Ogyu Sorai and Arai Hakuseki seem to have taken nanshoku itself for granted; they only raised objections when the fashions of men of status began to emulate the costume of male prostitutes, when sexual propositioning in public began to create violent incidents, or when shoguns excessively rewarded their minions with land and offices.

He did not lend his voice to the ex-noh actor's critics, who alleged that Ienobu "would lead his attendant, Manabe Akifusa, and other pages As elsewhere in East Asia, yin-yang thought influenced Japanese views about sex.

The god of healing buggers the god of thunder, perhaps to punish him for bringing famine or floods. Artist and date unknown. Sun Simo and expressing yin-yang concepts of sex, was reprinted in Tokugawa Japan. Given the lack of moral sanction against nanshoku in these various religious and philosophical systems, many in the Buddhist clergy felt justified indulging in such behavior, regardless of their vows of chastity.

Although sixteenth- century Jesuits reported that Buddhist priests denied that nanshoku was a sin, it seems clear that male-male sex was often viewed with some ambivalence, even by those who Drag The River - Disciples Of Agriculture - Disciples Of Agriculture (CD in it.

In Nanboku Tsuruya's drama Sakura hime azuma bunsho Eastern documents of the cherry-blossom princess,a priest and acolyte attempt double suicide because their trysts have distracted the priest from his religious devotions; they find it hard "to go on living, wondering how the temple [monks] are criticizing [us].

In one of Saikaku's tales, the monk Gengobei reflects: "When I abandoned the word [for the religious life], I vowed to Buddha that I would give up all thought of sex with women. However, I couldn't stop thinking about the 'beautiful way,'gg or about boys.

From that time on, I've apologized to the buddhas, saying, 'Permit me, please, this single [pleasure],' so up to now no one has condemned me. The idea that homosexuality the "beautiful way" serves as a reasonable and forgivable compromise between heterosexual involvements and complete sexual abstinence is also found in Kitamura Kigin's preface to Iwatsutsuji Rock Azaleasa collection of nanshoku-themed erotica authored around and published in "[T]he Buddha preached that Mr.

Imose [a euphemism for male-female sex] was a place to be avoided and thus priests of the law first entered this way as an outlet for their feelings, since their hearts were, after all, made of neither stone nor wood. The effort to justify male-male sexuality in Buddhist terms reached its height during the Tokugawa period, when writers as. Hotei, one of the Seven Gods of Happiness, relaxes with a young female-role actor. Okumura Masanobu print, ca. And for unclear reasons, the name "Daruma" Bodhidharma, the Indian Zen patriarch, who became a major figure in Japanese folklore came to be applied to male and female prostitutes Figure 4.

In Buddhist Japan, as in Christian Europe from the later medieval period, clerics were in theory denied all sexual outlets. But whereas in the West homosexuality was reckoned even worse. Woodblock print by Takeda Harunobu Tokugawa Period. Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Source: H. As noted previously, the Buddhist faith is traditionally anti-female, and though the misogyny was in some ways mitigated in Japan, particularly in the early centuries after the introduction of the religion, by the medieval period Japanese Buddhism insisted upon women's inherently evil and defiling nature.

This increasingly negative view of women may simply have represented the traditional Buddhist strategy of discouraging monks from seeking sexual contact with the opposite sex.

But it may also have reflected institutional changes following the removal of the capital from Nara to Kyoto in Thereafter the court was particularly careful to keep the Buddhist establishment, which had earlier intervened with near-disastrous effects in politics, at arm's length. Women were banned from these sacred mountains. Monks of earlier periods had often resided in close proximity to lay folk, including women, but they now had fewer opportunities for the forbidden heterosexual contact.

Thus, they may have found it easier to vilify the sex to which they enjoyed so little exposure. But if sexual contact with women was regarded as debasing, sex with boys, if not a positive good, was regarded to use Kitamura's term as a tolerable "outlet for [monks'] feelings.

Thus, we have love-poems from the tenth century on addressed from monks to acolytes, and both the Konjaku monogatari Collection of tales old and new, early twelfth century and Uji shui monogatari between and contain tales that allude to pederastic relationships.

He comes to regret his decision, as the boy is less attractive in his new habit than before. He has the boy put on his old clothes and becomes sexually aroused, lamenting that he had ever made him a priest. A religious vowii from the same period, registered by a monk named Samon Shusei at the Todaiji Temple in Nara, also indicates widespread homosexual behavior in Buddhist monasteries.

Containing five resolutions, it was composed inwhen its author was thirty-six years old. Item: Having already fuckedjj ninety-five males, I will not behave wantonly with more than one hundred. Interestingly, the commitment to Ryuo-maru does not prevent this monk from allowing himself five more partners in the future.

The document ends with a pointed proviso that these vows arc limited to the present lifetime and do not apply to future incarnations. Clear references to male-male sex proliferated from the fourteenth century on. Monastic laws from the late Kamakura period and perhaps earlier suggest a concern about the disruptive effects of resident acolytes upon the contemplative life of the monks. One such reference occurs in a legal document issued by the Hojo regent, Sadatoki, to a Kamakura Zen monastery in In the shogun Yoshimasa even ordered a certain temple to confine a beautiful acolyte held responsible Album) monks' "unruliness,"nn Artistic and literary depictions of homosexual relationships also proliferated during the fourteenth century.

The Chigo no soshi Acolyte scrolla ribald masterpiece about priests and acolytes, appeared in and is now in the possession of Sanpoin Temple Figure 5. The first of what have been Album) chigo monogatari tales dealing with these monastic sexual relationships was written around and followed by seven other such works during the Muromachi period.

Kato Shuichi regards the development of "homosexual poetry and prose as one of the great contributions made by the Zen sect to the culture of Japan during the Muromachi period," citing the Shinden shiko of Shinden Shoben, the Ryusuishu of Tosho Shugen, and the San'eki Shik-o ca.

One of the Ryusuishu poems runs as follows:. Section from the ''Acolyte Scroll" Chigo no soshi, A manservant applies clove oil lubricant to an acolyte's anus. Painting in the possession of Sanpoin Temple. We passed the night in the same bed, And now looking at the pale moon at dawn through the window Our two shadows fall on the curtain A pair of mandarin ducks. I would celebrate the night's joy of love forever.

Our temple is like Kimshan Temple on the Yang-tse. This classical Japanese poem,oo as Kato suggests, is clearly on the theme of love, not lust. Other Muromachi literature, however, deals with pederasty in a cruder fashion. Yoshida Kenko's Tsure-zuregusa Idle writings, ca. Zen monks and their passion for acolytes. One Ikkyu poem begins, "Tired of nanshoku, I embrace my wifeqq Westerners first reached Japan in Their accounts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries contain numerous allusions to "sodomy" among the Buddhist clergy.

The Jesuit missionary Francis Xavier returned the hospitality of some friendly Zen monks by railing against his startled hosts for their open indulgence in "the abominable vice of Sodom. The priests "are drawn to sins against nature and don't deny it, they acknowledge it openly. This evil, moreover, is so public, so clear to all, men and women, young and old.

The Jesuit Alessandro Valignano, in his Historia del Principio, noting the "great dissipation" of the Japanese "in the sin that does not bear mentioning," also singled out the Buddhist clergy for attack: "[T]he bonzes teach that not only is it not a sin but that it is even something quite natural and virtuous and to a certain extent reserve this practice for themselves. This legend was reported by Gaspar Vilela as early as Though emphasizing the Buddhist-homosexual link, however, the Western missionaries seem to have regarded homosexuality.

Valignano's Catechismus for Japanese converts ca. Westerners other than Roman Catholic missionaries also noted the prevalence of homosexual behavior in Japan. From all this material, we acquire some idea of the characteristics of monastic homosexuality. The typical relationship involved a monk and a boy serving as an acolyte or, in Zen monasteries, a postulant. Sometimes they were very young; among better-known religious figures, Honen and Shinran both entered at age nine, Ippenat ten, Eisai l5 and Nichiren lat twelve.

By the time he reached his teens, the boy may have developed a special relationship with an older monk, who would be referred to as the nenja. Such bonds resemble the qixiong-qidi relationships of Fujian, described previously, or the erastes-eramenos relationships of ancient Greece.

Because the ancient Greeks although not, apparently, the Chinese regarded oral sex between free men as an abomination and anal sex as an act that feminized and therefore derogated the passive partner, the eromenos was at least in theory never subjected to penetration and, by implication, to "feminization".

In Japan, as the Chigo no soshi makes plain, anal sex was the norm in monk-chigo relations, and the anal erogeneity of the insertee partner was even celebrated. I think this occurred just after the Ninnaji [Temple] had been built.

There was a venerable priest there, highly revered throughout the world. Influenced by the virtue of the Three Mysteries of the Dharma, his character and the effects of his incantations were renowned. Yet he was unable to abandon this Way [of sex with boys]. Although there were many beautiful youths around him, one in particular would lie with him in the most intimate fashion.

But the ability to perform [sexually] has nothing to do with one's piety. He had apparently indulged too much, and so could not perform sexually to the extent he would have liked. In his heart, he yearned to [have intercourse with the youth] in the manner that the arrow of Shinto pierces the roofed mud wall.

But his [penis] was like an arrow just brushing against the mountain [of the boy's buttocks]; penetration was out of the question. The boy, saddened by this, diligently prepared [himself] each night. He would summon beforehand a youth named Chuta, the son of his nurse. Up to this point Chuta would perform his services with complete diligence, but now his penis would be erect. He could not help but masturbate.

Finally [the boy] would be called to [the priest's] bed. Being old, [the priest] went to sleep early, so there was not much time to embrace the boy before he went to sleep.

Thus, without any delay, the old priest would insert his penis into the bottom of this boy who had prepared so well in advance. Such a sincerely devoted acolyte is without parallel.

One must regard him as a priceless human being. Several paintings accompany this text. One depicts Chuta preparing the boy for his liaison using the dildo. The manservant is himself naked and in a state of sexual excitement. The captions translate as follows:. Chuta: This is hard to endure. You don't go [to the priest] until later, just before he retires. Do you really need me to perform this service for you already, while it's still afternoon?

You're much too early. Chuta: Since I perform this service every night, I sometimes think, "Enough already! It's too much. You can't understand my feelings. You're insensitive. This time I'd like real satisfaction. Chuta: I guess it can't be helped, can it? My thing gets erect, and there's nothing to do but masturbate. So my penis gets weak, and my wife reviles me.

I'll endure it, though, and help you out. This smells good. You're very fond of your bottom, aren't you? Before you go to the honorable priest, I wonder if you'd let me stick my penis in. The "sincerely devoted acolyte" is not, after all, entirely faithful to the old priest. The next illustration shows the manservant apply. In homosexual relationships of this type, the boys appear often to have served as surrogates for the females absent from the lives of the monks.

Various Tokugawa-period jokesxx indicate the conflation of boys and women, and of the anus and vagina, in monastic society. In one, a priest on a religious retreat asks a friend to make him an onyake artificial leather anus for use in lieu of a boy. But he adds the request that it taste like a vagina. Some monks during the medieval period "shaved [their chigos'] eyebrows, powdered their faces, [and] dressed them in female garb.

During this period he wears cosmetics, wears his hair up in a girlish bun, blackens his teeth, and thinly pencils in lines over his shaven eyebrows.

Similarly, when his beautiful wife is disguised as an acolyte, she is told, "It will seem natural for you to wear cosmetics. Although the boys looked rather like girls, they were not trained to imitate female behavior as were, for example, onnagata in the kabuki theater of later centuries. Their speech was quite different from that of young women, and they cultivated arts such as flute playing that were regarded as exclusively masculine pursuits.

Nevertheless, one must associate the evolution of the chigo role with the absence of women in the lives of the monks. Sono choji-yu o fude de toto to somete, go sun bakari hineri ireyo five sun equals six inches xx. Given the tenuousness of Japanese ties to the more homophobic traditions of continental Buddhism and the apparent absence of any indigenous taboo against male-male sexual contact, it is not surprising that the Japanese monastic environment should have produced such a highly developed and articulated homosexual culture.

Once firmly established in a country whose elites had decisively embraced Buddhism in the ancient period, this culture was bound to influence lay society. The courtly age-structured homosexuality discussed earlier may well have been patterned on the priest-chigo relationships. And the sexual relationships among males in the martial or samurai class unquestionably came to be modeled in part on the traditions of monks and courtiers.

The samurai, who during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries gradually came to dominate the country, had far fewer members during this period than the Buddhist clergy. Whereas the latter must have numbered in the hundreds of thousands, the military class constituted perhaps 6, men out of a population of seven million in about A.

Perhaps military, like monastic, society is by its very nature conducive to the formation of male-male sexual relationships. In given historical societies, the military emphasis on physical cultivation, as preparation for the battlefield, easily has led to glorification of the muscular male physique, such as one finds both in the homoerotic sculpture of ancient Greece or the work of such sculptors as Unkei and Kaikei in Kamakura Japan Public celebration of the male body in art may even influence the construction of sexual desire.

Such military values as group solidarity, loyalty under conditions of extreme stress, and unquestioning obedience to authority might in some situations induce military men to engage in sex with one another and even to develop distinctive homosexual traditions. The problem can only be investigated in the context of the specific cultural and ideological environments surrounding such military societies.

It has been suggested that feudalism may encourage homosexual desire and behavior. Women's status declined with the evolution of feudalism; in the Japanese case, the system of primogeniture came to be applied from the fourteenth century and removed women from prestigious military and administrative positions they had sometimes held earlier.

Strong men's traits, which represent the ability to survive in unstable conditions, may have acquired erotic significance to women and men alike. A samurai treatise of the early Tokugawa period described nanshoku as "something both agreeable and disagreeable" because "[t]o throw away one's life [for one's male lover] is the ultimate aim of shudo. Otherwise it becomes something shameful. But then one has no life to give in service to one's lordso it is both agreeable and disagreeable.

But the lord-retainer relationship itself often assumed an erotic character. This was not because the samurai universally embraced a code of honor inclining them toward unconditional loyalty to and love for their masters. Indeed, the best recent work on the early samurai emphasizes the conditional and self-serving character of samurai service.

Jesuit missionaries in sixteenth-century Japan, far from describing the samurai as faithful, dependable vassals, depict them as back-stabbers who "rebel Though it might have been observed in the breach, however, military society produced an exacting system Drag The River - Disciples Of Agriculture - Disciples Of Agriculture (CD values.

One of the most important elements in this system was the idea that loyalty to one's lord overrode loyalty to one's wife and children and even the obligations to one's parents. This, indeed, is one of the most significant Japanese modifications of Chinese Confucianism. From the fourteenth century it was commonly held that "[t]he relationship of parent and child is for one existence [i.

There is ample evidence that some military men took such beliefs very seriously, selflessly struggling, for example, to reestablish masters' houses after their apparent annihilation by enemy forces. Such mens' feelings for their lords would have ranged from mere willingness to follow orders and obediently fight on their behalf and follow orders what might be called "cold duty" to a genuinely passionate devotion "warm duty".

Lords receiving the latter would be expected to reciprocate with affectionate attentive-ness to their vassals' well-being. The erotic connotations of the idealized lord-vassal relationship are illustrated in the famous tale Chushingura The treasury of loyal retainerswhich, though written during the early eighteenth century, reflects values that had been celebrated in samurai society for centuries. Popular in various dramatic interpretations penned by bourgeois rather than samurai writers since the mid-Tokugawa period, the story is based on an episode that occurred in Because even unsheathing one's sword in the palace was a capital crime, the daimyo is ordered to commit seppuku, or ritual suicide.

Forty-seven of his retainers then embark on an elaborate scheme to exact vengeance; a year later, they track down their master's foe, kill him, present his head before their master's shrine, then disembowel themselves. In single-minded pursuit of their aim, the conspirators do not hesitate to exploit or abandon their wives and children. Their sole aim is to requite their master's kindness by avenging his death. Although heterosexual love is depicted in the best-known puppet-play version of the story it is shown as a sometimes tragic impediment to retainers' feudal duties.

In the most moving scene in the play, the unfortunate lord, having. Informed that he has not appeared, the lord expresses his sorrow that he "won't be seeing him again in this life.

It's hard to leave him. But there's no helping it. I can wait no longer. Just as the doomed man plunges his dagger into his abdomen, his chief retainer rushes into the room. In Japan there is no love story comparable in popularity to [Chushingura]. Men so much in.

I think that if he were involved to such an extent in this kind of man-to-man relation there would seem to be no necessity for a love affair with a woman. His emotions would be completely expended in his devotion to his master. I suspect this was the real nature of the Samurai mentality. Doi Takeo, a prominent Japanese psychiatrist, has also noted the homoerotic character of lord-vassal relationships depicted in kabuki dramas. Doi closely identifies this dependence with homosexual feelings "in the broad sense," which, he maintains, remain far stronger in Japan than in the West.

Samurai attitudes toward sex would have been influenced not only by the idealized lord-vassal relationship or by the institutionalized devaluation of women. The existence of a pervasive monastic homosexual tradition would surely have encouraged warriorswho generally respected the Buddhist clergy and embraced many of their valuesto regard the role-structured homosexuality practiced by the monks with particular tolerance and sympathy.

They would then incorporate elements of that tradition into their own evolving culture. Boys of samurai status often received education in monasteries and forged "brotherly bonds" with monks.

Boys serving as. As Ota Kinjo noted in''During the time the country was at war [ca. With the restoration of peace to the country after the Battle of Sekigaharathe object of sexual desire gradually shifted from the young soldier-in-training to the more effeminate boy-attendant.

A picture scroll emdki of the Kyoho period painted by Miyakawa Choshun vividly conveys the homosexual atmosphere such boys lent a contemporary samurai mansion. A high-ranking samurai, his son, and an entourage of twenty-eight servants and retainers are shown getting ready for an outing.

Among the group is a youth dressed in female clothing, attended in his toilet by two other boys who are also seductively dressed and coiffured. A samurai in the center of the scene seems to gaze at these two boys. To their left, seated upon the stage, another youth is having his hair dressed in the fashionable Shimada style popular with courtesans.

The attendant standing next to him wears the purple scarf of a kabuki actor. Near them another group centers around a boy who is choosing his kimono for the day, and at the left some other boys prepare tea. There is not one female in the painting. Biographical materials often refer to great men's involvements with youths and "beloved retainers. Warlords such as Hosokawa Masamoto ; Hosokawa TakakuniHosokawa FujitakaTakeda ShingenOda NobunagaToyotomi HideyoshiToyotomi Hashiba HidetsuguUesugi KenshinMaeda ToshiieFukushima MasanoriOgasawara Hidemasaand the great swordsman Miyamoto Musashi are all known to have engaged in sex with boys.

The relationship between Takeda Shingen and his lover Kosaka Masanobu or Danjo, is particularly well documented. Kosaka became one of the top generals in Takeda's army. Although he commanded the rearguard forces that rescued his lord at the Battle of Kawanakajima inhe owed his post, his opponents charged, less to his martial skills than to his sexual connection to the daimyo. The relationship is recorded in their contract, written and co-signed inwhen Shingen was twenty-two and his partner, then named Kasuga Gensuke, sixteen.

The text, which is preserved in Tokyo University's Historical Archive,aaa alludes to a third person with whom despite his denials Shingen seems to have had a sexual relationship:. Item: Although I have sometimes said to Yashichiro, "Let's have sex,"bbb he has refused me, saying, "I'm having stomach problems and am not feeling well. Item: Yashichiro has never slept with me as my attendant in bed.

To date, that has never happened. Not only have I never had sex. Especially now, I have no thought of having sex with him. Item: Since I want to become intimate with you, from now on if you have any doubts about these things, I want you to understand that I do not plan to hurt you. If I should ever break these promises, may I receive the divine punishment of the Great Myoshin of the First, Second, and Third Shrines of the province of Kai, Mount Fuji and Shirayama, and particularly Hachiman Bosatsu, and all the higher and lower deities.

Apparently Gensuke was jealous of Yashichiro and pressed Shingen for such a written promise. The documenta nice specimen of the "brotherhood contract"suggests the seriousness with which both parties entered into nanshoku relationships.

Such documents are quite rare. As in the case of the Han emperors or Koryo kings, the great man's homosexual activities enter the historical record because they have some relevance to his public behaviorhis distribution of gifts, lands, and offices. Thus, we know Yoritomo made his young lover, Yoshinao, an officer in the Imperial Guard and that Takauji lavished valuable swords on his boy. Major scandals and vendettas at the highest level can sometimes be traced to nanshoku infatuations overthrowing political judgment.

Ashikaga Yoshimochi provoked rebellion by offering vast lands to his lover Akamatsu Mochisada, and his brother Yoshinori was slain in over his effort to similarly reward his own bedmate, Akamatsu Sadamura. The second Tokugawa shogun, Hidetada, ordered his page and lover Koyama Nagato to commit seppuku in as punishment for Nagato's sexual affair with Naruse, the lord of Bungo. Such tales have survived because these relationships were relevant to politics. No doubt a myriad of tales about male- male love involving no scandal, murderous vendetta, or colossal misjudgment were simply forgotten soon after the principals died.

Representing no exceptional or aberrant behavior, they did not become the stuff of historical chronicles. Although we know next to nothing about the popular view of nanshoku, the historical record left by the literate strata of society suggests that most people would have inquired not why a given man had taken male lovers but rather why he had not done so. Let us conclude our discussion of pre-Tokugawa traditions of nanshoku by placing them in global perspective.

Two general types of male-male sexual behavior widely occur in preclass societies: age-structured and gender- structured. The second involves the establishment of a specific homosexual role, such as that of the cross-dressing shaman, whose adherents may serve as insertee partners for interested men.

The Sambia of Melanesia provide one example of the first type; among them, all boys are required to fellate older males on the theory that without the ingestion of semen they will not attain adulthood. Among the Dorians of ancient Crete, ritualistic kidnapping and homosexual seduction of youths by older men constituted a rite of passage.

Elsewhere, specific homosexual roles were constructed, to be fulfilled by a small number of specific males, often cross-dressers. In the ancient Near East, for example, male temple-prostitutes or cross-dressing eunuch priests performed the insertee role with male patrons.

In pre-Tokugawa Japan, age-structured homosexuality flourished in monastic and military society. There was apparently no designated social role for the man who performed the insertee role throughout his life, but the youthful partner in male-male relationships was often like the berdache or hijra obliged to assume a feminine or androgynous appearance.

Surely this tendency to feminize the younger partner resulted from the absence of women in the contexts that produced the first homosexual traditions. The first developed tradition of nanshoku in Japan was that of the Buddhist monasteries.

We cannot explain the monk-chigo relationship solely as the result of "situational" sexual behavior, for some individuals may have taken holy orders in part because they preferred an all-male environment and its sexual opportunities. Heterosexual desire was evident in the construction of sexual objects made up, coiffured, and dressed much like women. The emergence of the samurai nanshoku tradition can also be explained in part by the relative absence of women in martial society.

During long military campaigns, warriors might become sexually attracted to young attendants and boys undergoing martial. Ranking warriors might retain beautiful youths for sexual purposes, dressing them not as females but in conspicuously elegant, nonmartial attire. Thus, we find in Japan on the eve of the early modern period two homosexual traditions that 1 emerged largely as the result of the lack of women; 2 were age-structured and seen as contributing to the younger partners' education or maturation; and 3 often required the younger partner to assume a female-like or androgynous appearance.

These traditions were practiced by respected elites and legitimated by the strength of the Chinese tradition and by the Kukai myth. With the establishment of the Tokugawa shogunate and the subsequent growth of large towns and cities, a third, bourgeois nanshoku tradition emerged.

Although males initially outnumbered females in urban environments, the homosexual culture they created owed as much to the enduring strength of the earlier traditions as to the undersupply of women. Aware of monastic and samurai traditions, men of common status in the Tokugawa period would naturally have regarded homosexual desire as normal and male-male sex as a permissible and attractive activity.

Actors playing young men often received larger salaries than those playing women. At that time, shudo was all the rage in all the quarters of the town. Tominaga Heibei, Kei kagami, early eighteenth century. The period between and marks a watershed in Japanese history. During these three and a half decades, a nation that had been divided for more than two centuries into numerous warring feudal units was reunited under a form of central rule. Three great warlords in succession achieved this reunification: Oda NobunagaToyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu Each of these men understood the central conflicts in Japanese society and in their attempts to deal with them produced radical, far-reaching changes.

Not all of their policies are pertinent to our topic, but onetheir effort to rein in the great majority of samurai and sever their links to the peasantrywas of extraordinary importance. It led to the rapid growth of castle-towns and to the emergence of a huge bourgeoisie with a lively culture of its own.

This class developed a new nanshoku tradition quite distinct from the monastic or samurai traditions. For the merchants. Sunday, December 12, John Lennon As a consequence of the Obama recession, I've found myself obliged to put in the occasional 16 hour work day.

By occasional, I mean two or three days a week. Naturally, while working these 16 hour days, I've had little time or inclination to write posts for this blog.

Had I not been working this schedule, I might very well have written something on John Lennon commemorating the 30th anniversary of his death on December 8th. Perhaps that's just as well; I have long since lost any love or admiration I may have once had for the late celebrity. In a previous post [ Goo Goo Ga Joob. The Beatle's recording of the song was the brain child of producer George Martin; Lennon could never had done the song in a live performance as Zappa had done.

Zappa's treatment is especially ironic considering the bad blood between Zappa and Lennon over John and Yoko's "performing" I use that term loosely with the Mothers of Invention at the Fillmore East in Adding insult to injury, Lennon took writing credit for Zappa's King Kong which Zappa had previously recorded on his album fromUncle Meat. I know my low opinion of John Lennon is not a popular one True, the music of the Beatles was an important influence, back in the day.

Hopefully, as we grow older, we also grow as individuals. I've gone from being in awe of the Fab Four, to indifference, to downright hostility to much of what John Lennon represented.

His assassination was, indeed a tragedy. However, over the years I've come to believe that, had a poll been taken during the Beatles' heyday, which asked the question, "Which Beatle do you believe is the one most likely to be assassinated? One Week Later. Thanks to a throw-away post - Al Gore sues Angeles Duran for Damages - the number of visitors to my blog has skyrocketed. The week before that post - November 19 to November 26 - the blog had received visits from cities worldwide.

Now, one week later, the number of hits from November 27 when the piece was posted until today, December 4, the total has reached visits from cities. I've used Google Analytics to track down different websites that have linked to the post. I'm including a screen shot of one such link from the olympicpost. According to wikipedia, Trondheim is the "historic Viking capital of Norway". Oh, yeah Saturday, December 4, Ixchell, my Belle Readers of this blog are well aware that I am of a lover of parody and satire.

My recent posts on the Al Gore lawsuit and Denmark joining said lawsuit are testament that I'm not above pulling a proverbial leg from time to time. However, this story is not a parody. Truth is, after all, really stranger than fiction. Ixchell is goddess of midwifery and medicine as well as tapestry and the moon. Just what any of this has to do with global warming is anybody's guess. In a breaking story that can only be found on Internet News Network I. As usual, I'm providing a link to the I.

On Saturday, after reading the story of Angeles Duran - the Spanish woman who has laid claims of ownership to the Sun - I wrote a short little goof piece entitled Al Gore sues Angeles Duran for Damages.

It was fun going to Google Analytics and checking out the increased traffic, but when I discovered that my post had been taken seriously by someone at China Daily.

The link will go to the story at the Chinese website I'm not making this up. I've taken a screenshot of a portion of the page just in case it disappears. In less than 36 hours, my humble little blog post has received nearly visits from more than cities in 70 countries. That's pretty amazing for a blog that usually gets about 60 visits in a 24 hour period. Thanks, Al. You never know Yesterday, after reading about Angeles Duran and her claim to be owner of the Sun, I did a silly little post on Al Gore filing a lawsuit against her due to damage caused by Global Warming.

I didn't spend a lot of time or thought on the idea. Little did I know the reaction that little piece would have. The image on the left is a snip of maps showing the location of visitors to the post Googling keyword like angeles duran or angeles duran al gore and al gore has filed a law suit against the woman for damages caused by global warming and my blog ranks high on the list. I'm not quite so sure why anyone would have googled "al gore has filed a law suit against the woman for damages caused by global warming" but, evidently someone thought to do just that.

I wish there was some way to take advantage of the increased traffic. You just never know what's going to attract readers. Update: After giving it some thought, I did an I. Hours after learning of Angeles Duran's claim of ownership of the Sunformer Vice President, Al Gore has filed a law suit against the woman for damages caused by global warming.

Ruth Marcus to America, "Grow Up! She admits that the "pat-downs" are intrusive, but she assures us that we might not have to submit to the groping if we agree to simply walk through the "souped-up screeners". Besides, she writes, " So now, with the present administration, this Constitutional Right to Privacy is abandoned for the sake of national security. We must, she tells us, put up with any inconvenience and the lack of privacy because Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had been able to board a plane with explosives in his underwear.

To the best of my knowledge, Amsterdam does not use the same intrusive security procedures that the TSA uses. Our security methods would only catch would be terrorists already in the USA. I don't understand the government's obsession with airplanes. A terrorist in this country can travel anywhere he chooses by car. Anyone hellbent of terrorizing the citizens of our nation could do more damage to our national psyche by killing 20 people at 2 different Walmarts than by killing in a plane flying from one American city to another.

How long before we can look forward to being subjected to "pat-downs" and "souped-up screeners" before we can enter a theater, subway or football stadium? She was wrong about the Tea Party as well.

Responding to complaints over body scanners and genital groping by the TSA, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said "if people want to travel by some other means," they have that right.

I suppose Napolitano is asking terrorists to follow the lead of Timothy McVeigh and rent a vehicle rather than fly. Gives new meaning to the idea of "Hertz car Rental". Reading Richard Cohen's rant on tobacco today, [ The faces behind tobacco's deadly addiction ] I have to wonder how long it's been since he smoked his last cigarette.

He admits to being a former smoker, but his piece in the Washington Post demonstrates that he is still very much addicted to the drug. Cohen still misses " Sorry, Richard, but your mind just isn't right. Cohen goes on to say, "We former smokers are an intolerant lot.

We are motivated by regret and rage. We have been suckered and sucker-punched, lied to repeatedly and fooled in our juvenile years into taking a course that we can only partly remedy. Speak for yourself, Mr Cohen. Why be motivated by "regret and rage"? It's really pointless to be angry with Louis C. Camilleri, Richard Burrows, Daniel M.

Delen or the other tobacco industry big-wigs you name in your article First of all, the guys you rave about are all younger than you and were probably only a glimmer in their father's eye when you took up the nasty habit. You can't even blame the tobacco executives who were around when you started - they're more than likely dead now any way - but the responsibility for your having started in the first place rests firmly on your shoulders.

Depending on how old you were when you started, part of the blame might be put upon your parents. Cohen goes on to suggest that, rather than put the new, more graphic warnings on cigarette packs, the government should require that photos of tobacco executives be used on the warnings instead.

How about we track down all the folks holding tobacco company stocks and put their photos on cigarette packs as well? I agree with Cohen that anyone involved in the selling of cigarettes in perfectly despicable I'm thinking that there may be a special corner in Hell reserved for them, but seriously, Mr Cohen, you're still carrying this addiction around in your head and you need to just drop it.

You may have been "suckered and sucker-punched, lied to repeatedly" but it was you lying to yourself. Monday, November 15, Because you asked:. In a comment from yesterday's post, Al asked if I could post a recent photo of JP to compare with the photo I posted of him when he was newborn.

OK, here's one from a couple of months ago. Sunday, November 14, Happy 5th Birthday, J. One of the first photos of J. Happy 5th birthday,son. OK, I admit it; I am not a fan of professional football. I have no interest in watching millionaires play ball.

I will, on occasion, watch college football - particularly if I think there's a chance I can see Alabama getting beat. Being unfamiliar with "the Super Bowl halftime alternative television special called the Lingerie Bowl"I was totally unaware of the Lingerie Football League LFL until I came across a news story telling how Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett was against the idea of the league bringing a franchise to his city.

I never said that I wouldn't allow it. I've always felt that my post are more interesting with visuals, so I'm including a screenshot from one of the videos; it wasn't easy deciding which screenshot to use. Sure, the game was interesting I just can't remember the final score or which team won. It's amazing how two individuals can look at the same event yet come up with two completely contradictory opinions regarding the meaning of that event.

I'm referring to Washington Post writer, E. Dionne and Ann Coulter and their different understanding as to what transpired on November 2nd. Dionne looked at the recent election - and the drubbing received by the Democrats - and came to the conclusion that the electorate wants the Democrats to continue their attempt to drag the country further to the Left.

Dionne wrote of the election, when "the largest number of voters in American history gave the Democrats their largest share of the presidential vote in 44 years and big majorities in the House and Senate" and concluded that we, as a nation, really do want to live in the world as envisioned by Obama.

Unlike CoulterDionne hasn't caught on that the election results came from a disproportionate number of air-headed 18 to 26 year old children voting for "Obama as a fashion statement". Contrariwise, the election was the product of mature, clear thinking, tax paying adults taking back control of the country. Thankfully, it's normally difficult to get the young to vote With many of the young disillusioned with Obama, the children that put him into office stayed home this past November.

Dionne wants the Democrats to hold their ground. Don't give in to the Republicans, he says. In spite of the fact that the recent Republican victory was massive in scope - on the State and Federal levels - Dionne is convinced that the GOP is made up of extremists who do not represent the American people.

I hope he gets his wish. I hope that the Democrats continue to show us exactly what they believe and the direction in which they want to take us. Democrats holding their ground will bring about further loses for them in Wednesday, November 10, Photo shop of the Day.

My idea Monday, November 8, Olbermann Unfired. From the New York Times via boston. Sounds a bit like a publicity stunt to yours truly. Saturday, November 6, Olbermann Fired. One would have thought that Olbermann would have been exempt from this ban on the grounds of his not being a journalist. The Washington Post article writes, "The revelation of Olbermann's contributions -- first reported by Politico -- means that the anchor was leading on-air coverage of races in which he had privately picked favorites.

The same Washington Post piece writes, "The policy cautions the network's journalists against taking part in activities that might create an appearance of conflict of interest.

Is donating money to Democrats really any different than what Olbermann and his ilk do anyway? Movie Review. With the help of xtranormal. After viewing the video, I went to xtranormal. It gets my vote for the next Academy Awards. Wednesday, November 3, For the Liberal who has Everything.

He finished the set with "This City" which the audio version has had over a million listens on YouTube.

He had a bit of a Sam Smith vibe about him and could easily have big success in the future. The death of a close friend is not traditionally the occasion for a joke. But when that friend is a fellow Python, it seems entirely appropriate.

He was diagnosed with a rare form of dementia in Tuesday 21 January I have seen Stereophonic's a dozen times since when they supported Aerosmith at Wembley Stadium. Stereophonic's have had 11 x Top 10 hits in the UK including a number one with "Dakota" Their 11th studio album "Kind" was released Oct and was another number one album for them.

I have seen Ash several times since Ash have had 4 x Top 10 hits in the UK. I have seen Ronnie Wood join Stereophonic's on stage a few times, but he is not here tonight. ASH arrived on stage at 7. The trio from Northern Ireland played a good set full of their best tracks. Singer Tim Wheeler is still playing his trademark Flying V guitar.

Full Ash setlist played tonight A nice stage production with loads of lights. Singer Kelly Jones is now aged 45 but somehow looks the same as he did 20 years ago. Loads of their catchy singalong radio friendly hits played in their set.

Kelly gave a thanks to Absolute Radio was previously Virgin Radio who always play their songs. They finished off with a mega version of "Dakota".

Full Stereophonic's setlist played tonight On 23 Jan I popped along to a famous live music venue to see popular Dutch band called The Scene. The singer sadly died of cancer in The Paradiso Club is still going strong. Sunday 19 January Daily Mail reported this the following day after Saturday at Olympia Furious fans have branded drag icon Ru Paul's DragCon UK convention a 'shambles' after being forced to queue for hours outside the venue amid reports the event has been overbooked.

Those attending the event being held at Olympia London have taken to social media to share their anger after waiting to enter convention for up to four hours. The show was on for 2 hours 40 mins over two sets of 85 mins and 75 mins. The two hosts did most of the on stage bitchy banter and introduced the acts. One track in each set so they could do a full change of costume.

One girl did a great routine based around a Spice Girls medley. One girl did a great Amy Winehouse impersonation. She finished her routine by taking her shoes off and doing a full crowd-surf over the front rows. Plenty of entertaining bits and plenty of pretty average bits throughout the evening. Saturday 18 January Level 3 is closed tonight so maybe are here.

Owen is a young male country singer-songwriter from the UK who sung some decent tunes. He told an amazing story where he was busking in Liverpool and Chase Rice walked past him, The Gatekeeper - Total Eclipse (8) - Ashes Of Eden (CD what he heard and asked him " would you like to support me at Shepherds Bush Empire". Canadian female country singer-songwriter played a decent set.

She said she has been living in the Nashville the last few years. Chase Rice is an American country music singer-songwriter who has had success back home. Chase arrives on stage wearing a baseball cap, and is the spitting image of Prince Harry. He has a great band who all hail from South Americaand were much more rockier than expected. Chase has nice clear catchy vocals and he has two songs with Jack Daniels in the title which is great by me.

He gets a girl on stage for some flirting during the song "Ride". He sung his big country hit "Eyes on You" that had all the crowd singing along. He also sung "Cruise" which was the big country hit he wrote for Florida Georgia Line. But not before he goes down to meet his people, sign autographs, shake hands and have selfies with most of the front rows.

All the while the band plays a metal riff, as if they are finally glad to. The band finish the song and join him in the pit to sign stuff and pose for selfies. He played Bush Hall last time and it is pretty clear Chase Rice will be getting bigger success in the future.

A really good gig that ticked all the right boxes. Full Chase Rice setlist played tonight As it is quiet for major acts in January i always end up going to two or three shows that i would never bother with if they were on at any other time of year when there is more to choose from.

The venue is totally rammed solid and the atmosphere is just incredible. First of all we get a couple of djs who hype the crowd up perfectly.

We get a dance competition - female from West London v male from East London He must think he is an Indian version of Axl Rose or Peter Doherty as he was due on at 9pm 50 mins late.

Sidhu is wearing an orange turban and the crowd are going wild. He has a dozen of his mates and a couple of personal security standing on stage by the dj console. Like the support actshe sings along to the dj console backing tracks. His Bhangra type music went down well with the very lively dance crowd. A decent enough show in its own way.

Now a band brings out an album titled "Father of all Motherfuckers" and nobody blinks an eyelid. Wednesday 15 January Around guests here in their very nice upstairs space called The Conservatory. The Business Book Awards celebrate the work of authors who have shared their industry or market knowledge, experience and expertise in published book form.

The main awards dinner evening will be held on 23 March. Around guests at this French owned gallery. This is Masayoshi Nojo first solo show outside of Japan. This exploration of time and memory is achieved using an innovative variety of mixed media and techniques, with each stage meticulously executed.

Finally, layers of aluminium and silver foil are applied to the canvas, highly symbolic and recreating a sense of intangible distant memories. Complimentary Pommery champers for all guests. Tuesday 14 January The Embassy building is just over yards from Trafalgar Square. Around guests are here. The show presents 9 large Brazilian native landscape paintings by Mariannita Luzzati in a dialogue with pottery pieces by Carina Ciscato.

Both are Brazilian artists who are based in London. Sam was one of 15 new firefighters sworn in Jan. Resolution Festival at The Club continues Resolution Festival celebrates the bands and musicians who kick started the punk movement and those who continue to breathe new life into it today. They have replaced their iconic sign over the entrance with a nice new one.

The Subs are still fronted by punk rock legend Charlie Harper who is aged I saw them a few times in the late s including when they supported Iggy Pop in Every year the band are playing over shows all over the world. Tonight is the last night of this years Resolution Festival at this venue. It is always special to be at a punk gig at this home of punk.

My friends always get me to look at the Steve Jones photo on the wall opposite the stage where I am in it front of stage from The Sex Pistols legendary gig here in Sept Gaye Black ex The Adverts was here. The band from Cheltenham played a good uptempo set that featured tracks from their EP "Rewind Erase" and their album and they fnished their set with a great track called "Joyride". Charlie Harper arrives on the stage to big cheers and looks more like a 50 year old rather than It soon gets live Album) down the front as fans are jumping around and a few are getting on stage for a dance and to sing along with Charlie.

The 23 song setlist whizzed along as no song lasted more than three minutes. Highlights included great versions of "Warhead" and "Teenage". They dedicated one song to Lemmy. Charlie is holding lyrics in his hand for a couple of rarely played songs but they get thrown in the air halfway through. Good to see The UK Subs still keeping punk alive. UK Subs setlist played tonight included But the real draw is her performance.

Patti Smith,Stranglers Roundhouse, London Theo Von is an American stand-up comedian, podcaster, television personality, host, and actor. We had two support acts. An English guy from Thornton Heath who had some funny bits in his 20 mins set. An American guy who is his tour support, did a good, but crude in places 20 mins set.

Theo arrives on stage and has a jaw dropping stage production He starts off with a good routine about his trademark "gender neutral mullet" hairstyle. How he was quite happy with folks taking one look at his hair and not trusting him with any responsibility. Theo has a full Southern drawl and does self-identify as "white trash", which forms the material in his set. Theo says "I wear that name as a badge of honour. He says "dude" and "shit" a lot and routines on family, friends, school and Mexicans are pretty good.

A heckler down the front put him off his stride a bit but recovered from that ok. It was a decent show and the crowd loved it. The shows start in two weeks time at The Palladium and are nowhere near a sell-out. Saturday 11 January Neil Peart, the drummer of iconic Canadian band Rush, has died at age The influential musician and lyricist died Tuesday in Santa Monica, California, after having been diagnosed with brain cancer.

It has been over a decade since he last appeared on these shores. Maybe his outspoken love of guns and hunting has put promoters off booking him. I saw him at least once on every one of his UK tours. Ted Nugent, QuireboysIndigo, London Not the best past fortnight for Rod as this week he was planning to go into hospital for knee replacement surgery and he is due in court next month after a New Years Eve scuffle in Palm Beach.

The scuffle happened after Rod was told by security "I'm afraid you are not on the guest list". Police reviewed security camera footage and took two signed sworn witness statements confirming that Sean Stewart had pushed security guard Mr Dixon and alleging that they saw Sir Rod punch him. The video footage showed that Sean and Rod were "the primary aggressors", according to the report.

Mr Dixon wishes to go forward with prosecuting both Stewarts for battery. Police said in the report that there is enough evidence to charge Rod with one count of simple battery. It is unclear if Sean will also face charges, although the arrest documentation lists him as a co-defendant. Thursday 09 January Thinking back to their great reunion period when i saw New York Dolls play Morrissey's Meltdown Festival at The Royal Festival Hall in which was followed by three great albums and they pretty much came back every year until so i could see them a few more times.

Tuesday 07 January In residence at the Saatchi Gallery from Saturday 2 November - Sunday 3 Maythe exhibition commemorates the th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, and is the final chance to see these glittering world heritage artefacts before they return to Egypt forever. Explore the life of King Tutankhamun, and the storied discovery that captivated the world, through more than authentic pieces from the tomb - three times the quantity that has travelled in previous exhibitions - more than 60 of which are travelling outside of Egypt for the first time.

In Los Angeles the exhibition was among the most successful in the history of the California Science Centre, while in Paris it became France's most attended exhibition of all time with over 1. My parents visited the exhibition in London in the s when it drew over a million visitors. Like The Stones exhibition there is a lot to see in the dozen rooms over the two floors. The stunning artefacts include many marked as " first time out of Egypt". There are videos showing the original discovery.

I was lucky to visit Egypt a decade ago and went to a few different areas which included where they found Tutankhamun. On that day there was a random sighting as a convoy of half a dozen limos pulled up. Really great to see al these famous artefacts again. This five star luxury hotel is situated on The Marylebone Road which is one of Londons busiest and most polluted three lanes each side road, but that is forgotten when you head inside this stunning hotel.

We are shown around the ground floor level and then head to one of their bars. Five different complimentary cocktails and nibbles here with my fave cocktail being Marylebone Twist. Lots of great staff fussing over us. The Gatekeeper - Total Eclipse (8) - Ashes Of Eden (CD opening picture on their website shows you their stunning atrium. Smoke and flames could be seen billowing from the scaffolding in the roof of Koko, in Camden, which is currently under refurbishment.

Oliver Cooper, a Conservative councillor who witnessed the fire, said the blaze was "under control and now being pushed back".

Along with Terence Donovan and Brian Duffy, Bailey captured and helped create the 'Swinging London' of the s: a culture of fashion and celebrity chic. The three photographers socialised with actors, musicians and royalty, and found themselves elevated to celebrity status.

Together, they were the first real celebrity photographers, named by Norman Parkinson "the Black Trinity". Wednesday 01 January A rewind to the 70s and 80s has continued a comeback, with sales of music cassettes hitting a year high. They may have been clunky, a pain to skip between songs, and often dodgy quality, but tapes are seemingly trendy again. Music industry body the BPI said UK cassette sales reached 80, last yearthe highest annual figure since the just overfigure in Experts put the revival down to a combination of people who bought them in their youth, and a novelty for younger music fans.

Tuesday 31 December I went to it last year for the first time since it was a paid event and it was much more fun than expected. Free travel on the tube and buses from A bit colder than last year, but not too bad. We are in the Red Zone which is to the left of the fireworks display area.

Half the crowd seem to be overseas tourists, with loads of Japanese here. Although there is security body searches and bag searches hereyou can actually bring in your own cans of booze. A nice friendly atmosphere and the fireworks at midnight were great. After the fireworks it was nice to see the or so Thames party boats of different sizes depart back to their moorings as all the buildings along the Thames were lit up. Monday 30 December This makes the grand total of gigs seen by me since Loads of great gigs not on this list but here are my stand out Top 20 gigs of There are are various reasons why a show can be greatit's just my personal choice.

People dancing and enjoying our original songs is always pretty special. Sting with Shaggy Roundhouse, 19 May. Lenny Kravitz Wembley Arena10 June.

Psychedelic Furs Roundhouse, 12 October. The Damned Palladium28 October. Sunday 29 December For those of you that remember when Top Of The Pops had female dancers. This is a good one Saturday 28 December On 28 Decemberfour days after his 70th birthday, Lemmy died at his apartment from prostate cancer, cardiac arrhythmia and congestive heart failure. Aside from his musical activities, he was well known for his hard-living lifestyle, which included chain-smoking and regular consumption of alcohol and amphetamines.

He died on 28 December Panayiotou, 55, was discovered at her home in Hampstead, London, on Wednesday night December The news comes exactly three years after George The Gatekeeper - Total Eclipse (8) - Ashes Of Eden (CD was found dead at his home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, on Christmas Day in Panayiotou, a hairdresser, was close with her brother, travelling with him around the world at the height of his fame with Wham!

Friday 27 December John and George did not show. This would be the last ever Wings show. Sunday 22 December Strummer died suddenly on 22 December in his home at Broomfield in Somerset, the victim of an undiagnosed congenital heart defect.

Saturday 21 December Comedy writer Ben Elton hosts and headlines an evening of laughs to raise money for disability charity Scope. Ben Elton now aged 60 is a British comedian, author, playwright, actor and director. He was a part of London's alternative comedy movement of the s and became a writer on series such as The Young Ones and Blackadder, as well as continuing as a stand-up comedian on stage and television. His style in the s was left-wing political satire.

His novels cover the dystopian, comedy, and crime genres. His latest book is called "Identity Crisis". Ben Elton introduced each act. Shazia Mirza was the only name i know but they all did decent routines with funny bits.

Three of the four other acts have disabilities. There are a couple of females all evening at the side of stage "signing" for any deaf people in the audience. Ben has a raspy voice as he is at the end of a massive UK tour of 70 or 80 shows. Ben has always been a life-long Labour supporter.

In the s Ben was a Tory bashing comedian so there is no doubt the current political situation has encouraged him to go on tour again as Boris Johnson gets a fair amount of stick tonight.

Ben is talking away very fast as usual on subjects close to his heart including Sad news that one of my fave football players from the late s has passed away. Friday 20 December I have seen The Darkness a few times since their million selling debut album came out in During their heyday period over a decade agothe band had five x Top 10 hit singles in the UK. REWS arrive on stage at 7. Irish musician and songwriter, Shauna Tohill. They played some decent tracks from their debut album.

The first set was the new album and the second set was greatest hits. The band were all dressed in white for the first set and wore rock n roll stage wear for the second set. Justin is wearing a trademark catsuit with all his chest exposed. They had a big screen showing pre-recorded images.

There was plenty of pyros and the ticker-tape cannons were used three times. The Darkness have had their fair amount of stick from critics over the years but surely they have been one of the most entertaining rock bands from the past 15 years. Melodic songwriting, with hard riffing rock and Justin Hawkins falsetto vocals are a great combination.

Justin says "the bands new 10 track album is conceptual, and should be played in full". The new album rocks along nicely, but Justin knows the fans are here for the big hits of yesterday. Justin is very comfortable with talking to the fans and joking around with them.

At one point he gets fed up with smartphones taking photos and asks for them to all put their phones away for one song and he picks one designated photographer who was on a friends shoulders to video it and put it up on his instagram account. Their big hits are some of the best rock tunes to hit the charts in the past 15 years. For their Christmas song encore the white snow like ticker-tape fell on the crowd. Full setlist played by The Darkness tonight His Doctor, who joined Jonesy on his showgoes onto say that Steve suffered from a very severe heart attack that easily could have killed him and he is lucky to be alive, however, Steve has suffered long term damage to his heart muscles.

The group broke up in earlyfollowing a European concert tour. But after their wedding inRonnie said Phil deprived her of the limelight and virtually imprisoned her in his Los Angeles mansion. Ronnie Spector got divorced from legendary record producer Phil Spector in Ronnie Spector is now aged I did not see her last show at The Roundhousebut i did see her perform at The Barbican in I also saw her at The Queen Elizabeth Hall in A few of the women in the crowd are wearing Santa outfits.

There is a big screen showing vintage Ronettes video clips from the s. Ronnie still has the big hair she had back in the s. Ronnie told a few stories from the s between songs. As expected there were lots of Christmas songs in the set. The crowd all got up and rushed down the front at the end of the main set when she played "Be My Baby". For the encore Ronnie came on stage wearing a Santa outfit. Great to see this legend is still rockin'. Full Ronnie Spector setlist played tonight Jones broke the news of his ailment during his show, "Jonesy's Jukebox", on the The Sex Pistols guitarist awoke in the middle of the night with a pain in his chest.

He drove himself to a Los Angeles area hospital, where he underwent emergency heart surgery. Wednesday 18 December Despite their rock n roll lifestyles back in the day ,it may look like Keith and Iggy Pop will outlive everyone.

Lenny was a trailblazer for black entertainers. The singer and actor passed away in the early hours of this morning, after making his mark in variety shows in the 60s. Lenny was on the front cover of The Wings album cover for "Band on the Run".

The cover depicts McCartney, Linda and Laine plus six other well-known people dressed The Gatekeeper - Total Eclipse (8) - Ashes Of Eden (CD convicts caught in the spotlight of a prison searchlight. This time it is for popular holiday company www. This campaign is all about creating the space to tell some properly naughty stories.

Sometimes, words just win. You can do in a spoken story what you could never do in picture. I am back to see Madness again after their great show on Sunday. The show was pretty much the same with the same setlist and the same stage banter. One extra thing Suggs said when talking about going to The Roundhouse in the s. He mentioned a famous long haired skinny gig-goer called Jesus who i saw a lot back then as he would be front side of stage with his tambourine or maracas.

Soooo many great hits played by Madness tonight and even their recent material sounds really good. See my Sunday review for their full setlist played. Another really great show.

It was a three course dinner with drinks in Soho for four people with Suggs. We had a great evening as Suggs was good company and posed for photos etc. I brought along an old Chelsea football programme for him as he supports them.

Tuesday 17 December It was Hammersmith Odeon on 17 Dec and i was there. It was the 19th time Just a couple of months later he was found dead. Agents Urban Base seek the same sum for The Castle. The mansion, built circastands in 14 acres and includes 11 bedrooms, an orangery and a cupola dome. Monday 16 December She began with three powerful songs, all marked by the humour and rage that characterise much of her output.

Her voice is still pretty incredible, and you cannot take your eyes of Sinead. A haunting end to a brilliant show. Also here was Jenny Drag from cool all-girl band The Priscilla's.

Full Sinead O'Connor setlist played tonight Sunday 15 December Madness play the first of three Christmas party shows at The Roundhouse. These are smaller venue shows for them as they usually play The 02 Arena every December.

These sold out shows are to celebrate their 40th anniversary. I have seen Madness around 25 times since when the ska revival kicked off in the UK. The dj plays a nice warm-up set of classic ska, reggae, soul etc. Madness are actually supporting themselves tonight. For the first set they are at the front part of the stage as they recreate The Dublin Castle in for their first ever gig and play a few songs that they played at that gig.

They even wore the same type of clothes they were wearing then. It is pretty compulsive to dance away to their bouncy songs and great lyrics.

Singer Suggs commands the ship as usualwith his wry humour. So many of their superb hits played in a great show. Full Madness setlist played tonight Despite the fact that his sound and technique are not really unique or innovative, his guitar work is still very recognizable. Jeff Loomis. And again the former Nevermore axeman is able to fill an album with songs with fabulous guitar parts. But I have to be honest: it is not really surprising anymore… When he recorded his debut album Loomis was still a member of Nevermore.

I had the idea that you could hear that in his music 'Devil Theory', 'Shouting Fire At A Funeral' ; great thrashy riffs that came blowing out of your speakers. On this new album I think I can hear that he is no longer a member of a thrash band. Loomis has become a guitarist more like Marty Friedman and Jason Becker; we hear less power riffs and more much more! What is also striking is the fact that there several tracks with vocals.

We hear Ihsahn yes, from Emperor! All in all a high quality, but also somewhat predictable album. Upload: depositfiles unibytes gigabase share4web Info: USA. Mercurial Feat.

The Path - Gorod - Process Of A New Decline (CDr, Album)


The Path - Gorod - Process Of A New Decline  (CDr, Album)


Programmers Of Decline Diverted Logic Rebirth Of Senses The Path Splinters Of Life Guilty Of Dispersal Gilded Cage A Common Hope Initially, the West European states had seemed eager to use the machinery of the EU and the UN to replace the stabilizing role of Soviet power.

But as Western Europe proved unable to provide a replacement for Soviet hegemony in the region as a whole, Clintons United States began to speak of itself as the indispens- able power for maintaining order, not only in the Balkans, but throughout the world. The most ambitious and dangerous flirtation with hegemony came with the increasingly insistent plans for NATO enlargement.

Despite the reserva- tions among American policymakers, the alliance was gradually extended not only to the independent states corralled into the Soviet sphere after World War IIlike Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, or Rumania, but also to countries that for centuries had been part of the Russian Empire such as the Baltic States and Ukraine. ByGeorge W. Clinton at least sought to preserve the appearance of the Russo-American cooperation of the first Bush era, but the younger Bush, unlike his father, showed little enduring concern for fostering a harmonious pan-European relationship that included the Russians.

The younger Bushs belligerent ap- proach was much appreciated among Americas ascendant neo-conserva- tives, perhaps because it provided the enemy required for completing a Mani- chean view of world affairs. Similarly, East European states, recently liberat- ed from the Soviets, were pleased to see the Americans take on military commitments designed to prevent the Russians from resuming their tradition- al regional sway.

Many West Europeans looked forward to cordial diplomatic and close economic relations with Russia, especially as a source of abundant cheap energy. The way seemed open for a mutually prosperous future, with Russia increasingly integrated with what might be seen as a greater Europe. Given the increasingly aggressive vagaries of the Putin regime, the dreams of a peaceful and prosperous pan-European region, increasingly inte- grated economically into the West, began to appear less and less realistic.

Misunderstandings and grievances multiplied. Disappointed and angry Russians resumed their Cold War character as did many Americans, particu- larly those who favored the views of the second Bush Administration. Mean- while, the United States ensnarled itself with fresh wars in Iraq and Afghani- stan. As the costs mounted and success grew elusive, European support for the American-led interventions was more and more grudging. In short, less than a quarter century after the end of the Cold War, the United States found itself slipping into a series of bloody encounters in the Muslim world and was progressively being drawn into the current quarrel between Russia and Ukraine.

As the Bush administration drew to a close, the vision of a unipolar world led by America began to seem more and more a derisory prospect. The hugely expensive American military establishment proved unable to translate its military power into decisive political victories. The new century added to the vast expenses of the American military establishment the costs of Homeland Security.

A hallucinatory level of fiscal deficits was the predict- able consequence. From tosober estimates of the cost of Ameri- cas Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq alone come to an astounding 2. Thus, during his final years in office, Bushs aggressive foreign policy and abandoned fiscal policy grew progressively unpopular, as the American public seemed to be losing its taste for world management.

That impression was reinforced by what appeared to be a successful withdrawal from the Iraq War in Subsequent years, however, began to suggest a return to earlier policies.

Afterthe Obama administration found it difficult to extricate itself fully from inflamed Sunni-Shiite rivalries throughout the Middle East. Russia, defying Ameri- cas warnings, invaded and annexed Crimea, and seemed ready to follow up in the Eastern region of the Ukrainian state. This prompted economic sanc- tions by the Obama Administration in American political elites.

Thus, while a foreign policy enthralled to Ameri- cas neo-conservatives was not easy to sustain either at home or among Americas allies, populist opposition to such a policy in the United States itself has so far failed to generate a durable shift toward strategic retrench- ment. Obamas difficulty in reversing Bushs foreign policy suggests what de- clinists fear: an American political system that has great difficulty adjusting to a world that is rapidly growing more pluralistic.

As a result, Americas federation is increasingly overstretched, unable to organize its burdens and capabilities to achieve sustainable ends. The unipolar undertow beneath both left and right in America is fostering a delusive misreading of a rapidly changing world. To avoid overstretch the United States will have to adapt to this plural world and reassess its own strength and geopolitical position ac- cordingly.

This means refraining from interventions that do not enjoy wide- spread support at home and among other major powers, willing to support the United States both militarily and financially. In a world of several closely related and integrated states, this means that politicians and historians regularly seek to determine comparative military, diplomatic, and economic prowess. Hence the enduring concern with de- cline.

When considering the rise and decline of American power sinceit is worth noting just how unbalanced the Second World War had left the world. ByU. GDP was 40 percent of the worlds output. Gradually readjustment followed. Bythe United States share had fallen to 23 percent. Customarily, surges in federal debt accompany Americas major wars. Abroad, the United States is trying to combine the imperial role of world leader while at home it competes with other rich societies to be a model for the democratic welfare state.

By the s, Americas postwar heritage was being en- gulfed in debt. The s gave Americas outsized aspirations a new lease on life. The Soviet collapse allowed Clinton a window for reducing military spending while the dot-com boom and Greenspans monetary policies pro- moted rapid growth that funded the governments income and led to a bal- anced budget.

As a result, it appeared, for a time, that Americas dual ambi- tions could be sustained. By now, however, the dot-com boom has run its course. The huge military expenses of the Cold War are returning with a vengeance, and defense spending has risen in real terms to exceed Cold War levels. Instead, the costs of the welfare state are rapidly escalating among all Western-style nations.

The governments programs for pensions and health care are primarily enshrined in the budgetary category of mandatory spend- ing. When manda- tory spending escalates faster than discretionary spending as a percentage of GDP, discretionary spending is squeezed.

Discretionary spendings share of total federal spending was 67 percent in but is projected to be 5. Rather, it suggests a political system progressively unable to choose among options and thus control spending.

Indecision and indiscipline impose heavy costs. The net interest on United States government debt was 6. But they should make clear why declinism remains an endur- ing feature of American political discourse. Professor Kennedy notwithstanding, can great nations be expected to col- lapse because their governments cannot pay their bills? It certainly seems possible, as the sad fate of Marie Antoinette suggests.

In due course, howev- er, politics generally intervenes as fresh power arises to reimpose order. Assuming Americas federation does resurrect its political will, how will it save itself? One classic remedy is inflationthe path initiated already by quantitative easing. Another is depreciation of the dollara path followed since the s, but for the moment abandoned.

These familiar remedies generally have a serious weakness: they point to a quick decline in living standards for many Americans. And, as the current banking crisis has re- minded investors, the powerful can often repudiate what they cannot pay. Ordinary citizens are the usual victims. American declinists also recommend a more intense search for allies and a greater willingness to devolve responsibility to them.

How the future actually plays out for America depends greatly on the policies of other major statesnotably Europe and China, but also Japan, Russia, India, Bra- zil, and perhaps Iran. The declinist conclusion that debt will force the United States to retreat from global hegemony because the costs are too excessive to bear may, however, prove to be an unsustainable hypothesis. The view that an over- stretched America cannot afford to continue on its present hegemonic course depends on geopolitical presuppositions that postwar history appears to challenge.

The Pax Americana has, after all, lasted more than half a centu- ry. Possibly a more realistic expectation than an American retreat is an indef- inite continuation of the status quo whereby Americas economic partners go on accepting exported dollars and develop ever more ingenious ways to abstract and sterilize their effects.

In short, the international monetary system will continue to be a taxation regime for financing a world empire. Such a system, even as it operates at present, puts immense unchecked power in the hands of Americas government. To keep this system tolerable for others will require exceptional self-discipline from American politicians as they become increasingly aware that, thanks to their countrys continuing hegemonic posi- tion, the supply of credit available to Americas economy is virtually unlimit- ed.

It may seem improbable that an increasingly plural global system will continue to accept such an exploitative hegemony at the root of international finance. Economists might regard such a privileged American position as an outrageous perversion of the doctrines of balance and fairness that lie at the root of their science.

Others, no doubt, will continue to ignore the exploita- tion so effectively masked by their academic discipline. Ultimately, a new view of political economy might evolve, one where todays discordant remnants of natural law and equilibrium, left over from the nineteenth century, make way for models based more frankly on political and military power. This new economics should be familiar to students of the nineteenth century.

Followers of Hayek should not be surprised. Arguably, todays quan- titative easing is the government-imposed inflation of the money supply that Hayek feared. Declinists, busily deflating the unreasonable expectations of new and old great powers, may help the world rediscover the virtues of the balance of power.

If so, they may spare the twenty-first century a great deal of pain. Kennedy writes that: it has been a common dilemma of number one countries that even as their relative economic strength is ebbing, the growing foreign chal- lenges to their position have compelled them to allocate more and more of their resources into the military sector, which in turn squeezes out productive investment and, over time, leads to the downward spiral of slower growth, heavier taxes, deepening domestic splits over spending priorities, and weakening capacity to bear the burdens of defense.

In short, global obligations of the hegemonic power become too large to sustain. David P. The National Interest Summer : Fukuyama wrote that we might be reaching the end point of mankind's ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government.

Real base defense spending spiked during major combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and has begun to decline. However, inthe United States still spends more in real terms adjusted to inflation than it did during the cold war.

This real spending figure needs to be distinguished from the popularly used defense spending as a percentage of GDP. Thus, the United States technically does spend more in real terms on defense since the cold Album) while also spending less in percentage of GDP terms.

This phenomenon is caused by the dramatic growth of mandatory-spending categories such as healthcare.

March 19th, Oswald Spenglers Decline of the West appeared in two volumes in and The question that runs through this paper is whether Spenglers work, written nearly a hundred years ago, still holds relevance for readers today, particularly, whether it helps to explain whether or not the West today is in decline. Spengler defines decline in his own way. It might be summarized in brief as the state of affairs, which he calls Civilization, when noblesse oblige is dead, when democracy reigns, and when money has de facto captured politics and most other human interactions.

My working hypothesis is that the West todayEurope and the United Statesis likely in decline and at least in part for reasons Spengler develops.

When it was published, Decline met with mixed reactions. A bestseller, it was said to comfort Germans because it seemed to rationalize their downfall as part of a larger world historical process.

On the other hand, its intuitive, polemical, frequently mocking style put many off. Its sheer scope left it vulnerable to specialist scholars. One reviewer observed that Spenglers work was not considered reputable scholarship, being too metaphysical and too dogmatic.

Yet there it sits, a massive stumbling block on the road to true knowledge. InTime magazine wrote, Cultivated European discourse quickly became Spengler-saturated. It was imperative to read Spengler, to sympathize or revolt. It remains so.

The Romantic scholar, Northrop Frye, claimed to have slept with it under his pillow, saying the work was a grand piece of poetry.

Reacting to Spen- glers determinism, G. Chesterton wrote, The pessimists believe the cos. The Progressives believe that it is a clock that they themselves are winding up. But I happen to believe that the world is what we choose to make it. He did not share Nazi anti-Semitism. In his private papers he wrote, When one would rather destroy business and scholarship than see Jews in them, one is an ideologue, i. I see world history as a picture of endless formations and transformations, of the marvelous waxing and waning of organic forms.

The professional histo- rian, on the contrary, sees it as a sort of tapeworm, industriously adding onto itself, one epoch after another. Whereas most historians, in Spenglers view, approach their work in line- ar, ancient-medieval-modern, cause-and-effect fashion, Spengler argues to the contrary that history is composed of cultures whose main characteristic is that they are organic.

Cultures are born, mature, and die in a manner more like organisms than lifeless cause-and-effect science. A Culture typically lasts around a thousand years. In his scheme there are eight cultures in all. Three of these receive close attention: first, by the culture of the West, called Faustian, marked, like Goethes character, by eternal longings and infinite horizons.

Second, the culture of classical Greece and Rome, called Apollo- nian. Every great Cul- ture begins with a mighty theme that rises out of the pre-urban countryside, is carried through in the cities of art and intellect, and closes with a finale of materialism in the world cities. Cultures are divided into epochs. An event is epoch-making when it marks a necessary and fateful turning point in a culture. Cultures are analogous in various ways that only a true Histo- riana person with intuition and a poetic sensibilitycan know.

Epochs divide cultures into stages that can be compared. They allow the Historian to get under the surface of history, beneath the world of mere events. Among other things, they permit predictions of the future, a venture of predetermining history, of following the still untraveled stages in the destiny of a culture.

Culture is to civilization as the living body of a soul is to the mummy of it. Thus, the season we live in determines the tasks we can undertake. Spen- glers West has been in civilization since the French Revolution and the rise of Napoleon. Civilization determines our life and sets boundaries on what we can aspire to. Under civilizations influence we have to reckon with the hard cold facts of late life, to which the parallel is to be found not in Pericles Athens, but in Caesars Rome.

Of great painting or great music there can no longer be for Western people, any question. We go through all the exhibitions, the concerts, the theatres, and find only industrious cobblers and noisy fools who delight to produce something for the market, something that will catch on with a public for whom art and music have long ceased to be spiritual necessities. The purpose of this section is to help understand Spenglers main terms and concepts.

They will come into play in the latter part of this paper, which focuses on Spenglers analysis of the State. This is where the album shifts direction. We get two more long songs with much more of a rock feel.

Not a massive amount of energy but not bad. An instrumental squall breaks out in a Pink FloydInterstellar Overdrive moment which then subsides as we return to the structure of the song. The words involve hypnotism — putting the subject to sleep at the start of the track and bringing them back to consciousness at the end.

The main section is an up-tempo psychedelic guitar and mellotron piece over a steady beat, the words dealing with opening the doors of your mind.

Overall a strange little album that is very polite but not exciting or particularly interesting. The material could probably have worked better in different arrangements but is nothing special, simply nice.

There is nothing really noteworthy about the melodies and the band still lacks, as was noted in the review of Polkuthe necessary punch. The six piece group seems generally underused, most tracks only featuring 3 or 4 of them at a time, and the fact that a number of guest musicians also appear is surprising as there is just not enough going on to necessitate everyone who was involved.

More old fashioned sounds from this label with a special fondness for retro, vintage, low-fi or whatever Album) call it. The remaining lyrics belong to one of the best tracks on the album, the epic medieval ballad Tuona Il Cannoneas the CD is for the most part instrumental.

Being a solid album, it might be too solid, if that makes any sense, and with this I mean that most tracks sound alike. Even with its imperfections, Logos has its moments. Overall, this is a reasonably enjoyable album, but nothing particularly memorable or groundbreaking, just pleasant, well performed vintage symphonic rock.

Nothing more and, certainly, nothing less. Conclusion: 6. Why am I telling you this? Having favourably commented on their debut album of 'complex and sophisticated symphonic rock', I discovered the follow-up to be another challenging if less rewarding listen.

Featuring an array of seven musicians plus three guests playing guitars, drums, keyboards, flute and sax, plus male and female singers, there's a good balance between vocal and instrumental sequences.

The songs again manage to remain progressive and accessible in equal measures. The band has been around for a decade and the playing is tight, balanced and well-focused. No single element dominates. There's a much stronger folk influence to their music and much less symphonics than I recall from before. The folk is taken both from their own culture and the western scene — but with a very modern energy to all the songs.

The lyrics are all in the band's native tongue, which will give an added dimension to those who speak can understand. From the copyright, it seems this was actually recorded inbut it's only just been released in Europe. The modern salsa-tinged, alt-prog-art rock of El Vuelo Del Ave goes too much against the grain, whilst the mix of male and female harmonies on La Clepsidra jars instead of combines.

The drum sound production across the whole disc is terrible. However for those interested in the more exotic fringes of the progressive world, this is worth seeking out. Meanwhile, the numerous refererences to dragons, gods, kingdoms and — yes- elves can only really summon up the ghost of the diminutive metal grandad himself, Ronnie James Dio.

At the end of the day this is more of an enjoyable curio than a bona fide addition to the canon of great metal records. Unfortunately I don't know much about the artist as his web site is in Spanish but his MySpace page cites Peter Hammill and Nick Drake as being amongst his influences, although neither come out in his own, rather individual, music, as demonstrated on this, his third album.

Apparently it is conceptual in nature but, again, my linguistic inabilities fail in elucidating the concept other than what can be gauged from a translation of the album's title - The Bereaved. The majority of the instruments are handled by Ruiz himself with Alejandro Moffardin providing the bass on eight of the thirteen tracks.

The water-based introductory track Altarleads into the relatively low key Narval which possesses a strange sounding keyboard opposing the rather breathy vocals and strummed guitar.

The song doesn't really take off until the flute solo which takes the song on to its conclusion and into Caminantea rather sinister jazz instrumental which again utilises some of the less often heard settings of a synthesiser's repertoire. The title track is rather melancholy, emphasised by the lonely viola, and it is at this point that I began to get a bit wary of Ruiz voice.

Possibly a language thing, but he seems to be striving for endearment but hearing every breath and sigh doesn't do a lot for me.

El Inventor is a bit more sprightly, although too much prominence in the mix is given to the drums for my liking, which at one point take off leaving the piano standing.

This is a fairly confusing track and I am not sure what the objective is, indeed, the album as a whole seems to be quite all over the place. Saxophone opens Los Olvidados but is soon superseded by a jazzy section that is only saved by the brief solo provided by the lovely sound of an electric piano. After a couple of verses Lopes gets a fuller solo. A stronger ending, which, on reflection, does have the faint odour of Van Der Graaf Generator about it, brings about the conclusion of one of the most interesting songs on the album.

The viola, electric piano and flute combine very nicely on Un Atajo Al Precipicio another instrumental piece whose prime fault is that it is too short! Obviously I want to hang out with my family, but I also have lots of "maintenance" stuff to take care of.

Sort receipts, fix my declaration, change tires on the car, fix the car broken generator, I don't know shit about this fucking stuff but yeah, I'll "fix" it somehow Car broke down on me as we're driving back from a Bloodbath video shoot Well might need some help for that.

Speaking on label situations, Vinnie Paul states; "We don't know.

About the cooperation, Tommy Lindal comments: "I got the invitation from Dewindson to appear on their new upcomming "And a Crow Brings me Back" some time back, he also sent me some songs of the recording for me to choose for what to work on. I really liked the music they made, the sound was quite different and original from the sound I'm used to in Europe. I accepted and went to record in Natal, RN in December. During the wait for Richardo [Confessori - Angra' and Shaman's drummer] recording, adding and deleting stuff to give me a final mix to relate with, especially on one song, where I play somekind of lead-melody, I was depending a lot on the background-music they already had made, so it was frustrating at times, but I resolved the issue buy recording a 2nd guitar, so it came out well.

I had a very close contact with Dewindson and Camilla. They are both very comunicative people and soon we became very close friends. I had my own work aswell forming my new band called We still have a great friendship, and now I am only waiting to listen the final result This cd is really worked through really carefully, nice producer, great mixer and with a great arrangement both musically and productively, so I am very excited about this!

With at least 12 hours a day for about 3 weeks of constant performing, we honestly feel that the songs could not get any tighter.

Little Red Rooster - Little Willie Farmer - I´m Coming Back Home (CD, Album)


The Dead Brothers are in top form, too, on this, their fifth album. This could be some fun. If you missed them at Thirsty Ear, here's your chance.

Also, there's movies, including Close Encounters of the Third Kindwhich many locals believe is a documentary. It's all taking place at the Railyard Park and it's all free. Check the Web site. Sunday marked an end of an era for the Thirsty Ear Festival. He says he'll still be bringing shows to Santa -Fe and there will be some kind of Thirsty ear Festival -- but not at Eaves Ranch, the movie set that has served as a the festival home nearly every year since I'm sure they were great, as they were last year at Santa Fe Brewing Company.

The rest of the day was fairly low key. I liked a couple of his songs, but I'm not a huge Hayes Carll fan and J. For me the highlight was Savora Cuban street music band currently based in Santa Fe, led by the charismatic Victor Alvarez. Basically the band consists of an electric mandolin played by Victoran electric bass and four guys on percussion.

It's almost magical the way it works. Savor opened up the day on the main stage -- which I missed, but played a seconf set inside the "hotel.

I hope to catch these guys around Santa Fe sometime. Alex played the first Thirsty Album) when he was still a teenager back in -- and I bet he's played a majority of the festivals since then. It seemed somehow appropriate that he was here for the closing of this chapter. Labels: ThirstyEar. Lots of great music on the first day of this year's Thirsty Ear Festival at eaves Ranch.

For those willing to withstand the wind and the dust I still can't believe that nobody took the opportunity to sing some Woody Guthrie Dustbowl songs it was a great time, as usual. And heck, Eaves Ranch is supposed to look like a dusty old western town. This year it was just dustier. It was a bittersweet fun with the word that this will be the last Thirsty Ear to be held at Eaves Ranch -- where it's been held almost every year since In it was at Bonanza Creek movie ranch and in it wasn't held at all.

At this point I'm not quite sure what the future of the festival is. But it's been a great run. All my snapshots from this year's festival can be found HERE. Here's my favorite music from Day 1: Although he's not that well-known, Richard Johnston was one of the true highlights of the first day. This was his second Thirsty Ear appearance, the first being back in For those unfamiliar, Johnston is a Memphis street musician, who earns a living giving performances on Beale Street.

Usually he plays as a one-man band playing guitar or one of his home-made diddley bows with his bands and drums with his feet. He had a couple of his homemade cigar-box contraptions with him Saturday.

But he also expanded his one-man band show saturday with the addition of Santa Fe's own Peter Williams on bass for several songs. I bought a copy of Johnston's Official Bootleg 1. The album, recorded several years ago, is good, but it doesn't come anywhere close to his live performances.

I'd only seen them once before -- at Club West circa Some of the current members of the band might not have even been born at that point. But if anything, this band is even tighter than the old days, Eddie Rivers, who also has played with Wayne Hancock, is a monster on steel guitar -- and he doubles on sax. Jason Roberts is a great fiddler and singer, and singer Elizabeth McQueen is a delight.

He's the glue that holds it all together. Last year the rain forced the Cats to abandon the outside main stage and play inside the hotel. But this year they were able to reclaim the main stage. And they did it like pros. Little Red Rooster - Little Willie Farmer - I´m Coming Back Home (CD those who've never seen them, Felix and the boys, who call Albuquerque home, play a mean mixture of ranchero, zydeco, country, blues and rock.

Rucker also found this page with more information on the song.

Here's those lyrics, which came from this page. The City Council passed a similar resolution on Wednesday. Please check out my story in Saturday's New Mexican. Consanti Foundation on Paolo Soleri Theater.

The love of a woman first brought him here, he said in a recent interview. It was here in Santa Fe that he set up his company, Montego Records. He left Santa Fe for several years.

Dallas, to be exact. But earlier this year, he returned, settling down in the Pecos area. Shark recently completed Rasta Life, a minute film about the music of his homeland. He produced and directed, while Eduardo Griego edited the documentary. Opening with Chinna Smith playing bluesy jazz licks on an acoustic guitar, the film mainly consists of singers he knows doing what they do best — singing.

While there is some studio footage, most of these performances are spontaneous or at least spontaneous-feeling a capella performances. This movie will be available to the public soon. Many of these tracks are available to download from the Montego Records website. Warning: this site is a little difficult to navigate. And King Shark has been recording some music here too.

The Age Of Love (Watch Out For Stella Club Mix) - Various - Loved Up (CD)


Move forward. My estimation of this group is not the result of considered assessment. I listenened and was stricken. I fell for them. I believe you will fall too. The initial impression was of a black Jesus and Mary Chain. Rock noise is a GREY affair, generally: the sound of concrete, pig iron, swarf, silt. Even the Mary Chain at their best could only produce a kind of mildly trippy smog. Coming from a different place, fired by other, jazzier ambitions, A. Kane have a more vivid spectrum--an iridescence that makes me think of Hendrix.

Kane themselves were amazed at being compared with the shambling bands. Now A. For all the fevered fleshiness of pop today, how many songs are there about falling in love? AR Kane are one of the few groups that convey the vertigo of rapture rather than the solid earthiness of need. The bastardized soul that is the sound of Planet Pop is all breath, exertion, the burden of passion; AR Kane are about the breathlessness, the numb suspension of enchantment.

Steve Sutherland reckons he can hear the ghost of Arthur Lee. A good notion, because, with AR Kane as with Love, sweetness and sickness, fragility and violence, adoration and loathing, are alternate sides of the same coin. The Lollita EP follows the course by which desire undoes itself, pursues the phantasm of possession to the point of madness, Mutually Assured Destruction. All love is tainted. The guy with the motorbike he never rides but just keeps in the garage, cleaning over and over.

People who buy paintings and keep them in private vaults, for their eyes only. Our songs emerge out of total chaos, which we then strip back in order to bring out a melody. We want to use melodies to suck people into the chaos. The supreme example of that is the Sixties soul and Levin jeans thing. The Levi thing was much more of a case of a two-pronged commercial campaign, where the song sells the product, and the product sells the song.

The irony is that 4AD were seriously pissed off by the ad, but now have the person who thought it up on their label. All these indie bands doing impersonations of Fifties and Sixties bands. I mean--who do you actively respect?

The Cocteau Twins. I like to lie down and concentrate, tune in. We like to have a lot of things going on in the music, so you can lose yourself in it. The thing about pop is that the Star Vocal, the singular melody is foregrounded, and everything else in the music gets subordinated to that.

I mean, exactly! Kane, in the sense of not being worldweary? Kane and Colourbox, under the rubric M. The A. Are they prolific? We want our own studio ultimately. We abuse our amplifiers and equipment to the point where the sounds were create are just new. Then the producers come along and put that iinto a box.

We want to smash the box as well. It should be like a baby being confronted with a rattle for the first time, seeing it as it is, without preconceptions. That kind The Age Of Love (Watch Out For Stella Club Mix) - Various - Loved Up (CD) thing affects you very physically, brings on a new awareness, something you feel in your guts, a new motivation, a letting loose.

We love chaos, you can lose yourself in it. Which is why everyone tries to tame it, make a system over it. A gentle circle. One is to make systems; the other is to dissolve them. One is to bolster the self and its mastery over the world; the other is to dissipate "I", blur the borders between the self and the world. On one side, clenched-arse agit-pop didacticism; "punkies" like Age of Chance and Win, with their lippy attitude, their triumph of rhetoric over both form and content; hip hop's tyrannical amplification of the self.

Charles the dog and Cliff the cat also understand English and can operate human appliances as seen in "Pets Peeved". Geo the hamster can follow instructions as seen in "No Guts, No Glori" despite Lori berating him and the other pets as not being able to understand anything beyond "sit".

Anachronism Stew : The series seems to be set in the current day, where smartphones, tablets, laptops and websites like YouTube are used. However, everything else, from the music to the video games and other pop culture items, seem to be set from the '80s-present. Animal Lover : Lana is the one who found all their pets when she was a baby, according to Lincoln's vlogs.

She also likes to rescue animals. Lincoln has also rescued animals and he likes to play with all the pets. Although Leni is afraid of spiders and rats, she likes other animals. In fact, she apparently has to restrain herself from adopting all the pets from the pet store. Lily knows the words "doggy" and "kitty cat" and likes to play with the pets. Animal Motifs : Due to the original premise for the series, rabbits are commonly associated with the Loud family: Rabbits are known for their explosive breeding, and there are 11 children The Age Of Love (Watch Out For Stella Club Mix) - Various - Loved Up (CD) the Loud family.

Lynn Sr. Lincoln's most prized possession is a stuffed rabbit he calls "Bun-Bun". Lincoln's very appearance is rabbit-like, with his white hair, buck teeth, and large feet. Luan has a pet rabbit named Gary. Lincoln once referred to quinoa as rabbit food. In "A Pimple Plan", Luan puts a unicorn mask on to cover her pimple. A horse thinks it's another horse and develops a crush on the mask, causing Luan to run away and get stuck in a hollow tree. In "Love Birds", Walt the canary has a crush on his neighbour Mr.

Grouse's plastic flamingo. When he realises it's fake, he goes into a funk, so his friends try to find him a proper girlfriend. Annoying Younger Sibling : Some of the siblings can be like this: Leni is one to Lori, who she often gets on the nerves of with her stupidity.

Luan is this when pranking her older sisters and telling them jokes but inverted when doing the same to her younger siblings. Lola tends to be manipulative and blackmailing, while Lana tends to be messy towards their older siblings. Lincoln, more-so in earlier episodes, is often seen as one by Lori, though she really loves him deep down and sometimes not so deep down.

Most strongly exemplified in "A Tale of Two Tables", where Lincoln is stuck at the kids' table for meals with his younger sisters and wants to sit at the adult table. However, when he gets his wish, he decides that the grass is greener on the other side and persuades his parents to send him back. Art Evolution : Nothing too major, but the animation has gotten more bouncy and fluid as of later seasons. Art Shift : In "Slice of Life", the art style changes to a more Animesque style when Lincoln and his sisters are about to duke it out over who gets the last slice of pizza.

It happens again with the pets at the end of the short when they're about to fight over the last slice. The Artifact : Lincoln himself has become this by Season 3. The original premise of the show was about Lincoln dealing with the craziness of having 10 sisters, with the plots following his perspective accordingly.

Then Season 3 came and Lincoln is now a recurring Absentee Actorwith his sisters being more than capable of starring in their own plots without depending on him. It's to the point that Lincoln-centric episodes now tend to explore his other personality traits and relationships with other people besides his family. In real life, this would be illegal. Then, he says, "Zip" meaning nothing, only to look outside and remark, The Age Of Love (Watch Out For Stella Club Mix) - Various - Loved Up (CD) When Luan locks them in the garage, she tells them them look at the monitors where they see that Luan talked the doubles into: Lincoln's double: professes his love to Mrs.

Lola's double: she hands her championship tiara to her rival. Leni's double: gets a hideous permanent and vows to show her friends. Luna's double: interrupts her rock recital to play bad polka music.

Lana's double: runs away from a worm. Lynn Jr. Rita's double: takes her unfinished and unedited book and submits it to her publisher. Lisa's double: ends her physics symposium by saying cats go "meow".

Lucy's double: she shows her friends her eyes, which she vowed never to show anyone. Lori's double: continuously farts on her date with Bobby and blames it on her squeaky shoes. Author Avatar : Chris Savino based Lincoln on himself when he was a kid.

Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other : Lincoln and his sisters clash a lot, but at the end of the day they'll always be on each other's side. The theme song makes it clear. Luan of the clown business that she and Lincoln have gone into together : Who did we just book?

Lincoln: Actually, the correct question would be, "Who did I just book? Lisa off-screen The Age Of Love (Watch Out For Stella Club Mix) - Various - Loved Up (CD) You're both wrong! It's "whom"! Lori: Beat it, twerp. Lincoln: Aw, come on, Lori, no fair! I was here first! Lori: Well, I was born first. Luna: Check it, bro. I uploaded this song I wrote about our family going down the highway to — hello! I just got fifty more hits! Grouse: Louds! Knock off that racket! Lincoln: Okay. I'll walk within the speed limit.

I swear. Lincoln: Ugh, could clear a room. Iconic Item : Most of the sisters own an object or more that they are closely associated with and practically define their personality: Lori - Her phone Leni - Her sunglasses Luna - Her guitar Luan - Mr. The Casagrandes seems to be following suit, with a few of their full-length episodes being named "Friended! Idiot Ball : In "Cover Girls", the Loud kids don't realise they can change back to their regular clothes when Pop Pop wants to see them together.

To The Age Of Love (Watch Out For Stella Club Mix) - Various - Loved Up (CD) lesser extent, he also has "Stinkin'", courtesy of Lynn Jr. In a similar manner, many of the other siblings are also given shortened nicknames by each other. Lana and Lola are often referred to a "Lans" and "Lols" respectively. Lynn Jr is given the abbreviation "LJ" by the family, too, especially since it helps differentiate her from her dad. Bobby has "Boo-boo Bear".

Lisa has "Lis" pronounced like the word lease. This is subverted at the end of the episode when Charles does attack a burglar, who's actually Lynn Sr. When Lola finds out, she is absolutely livid, leading to a scene where the background briefly turns into a raging fire behind her. In "Butterfly Effect", Lincoln's Imagine Spot of Lisa getting angry with him over wrecking her experiments has flames appear behind her.

Injured Limb Episode : In "Toads and Tiaras", Lola trips over a can of hair spray before a beauty pageant and breaks both an arm and a leg, so Lincoln trains Lana to sub for her. See all Electronics.
