Facebook: les couples qui ont un compte commun m'énervent
Tout à commencé hier quand un couple de connaissances (appelons les Samira et Dorian) m’a envoyé une demande pour devenir mes "amis" sur Facebook. Quoi de plus ordinaire et banal en 2010 chez un trentenaire urbain et un peu trop porté sur le web ? Rien.
Ah si : les deux personnes, en couple depuis deux ans et âgées de 34 ans et 33 ans avaient un profil commun intitulé niaisement "Chez Sam et Dor". Ca doit se vouloir mignon, sucré, doudou et chouchou. Grrr.
Du coup j’ai décliné l’invitation avant de pousser un coup de gueule sur Facebook. Qu’on partage un lit commun, un appart commun, parfois un compte commun ok. Je ne suis pas le dernier à apprécier mes moments à deux.
Mais un compte Facebook, lieu de l’espace individuel par excellence zut ! Que je ne sache pas qui va relever le courrier, moi qui connait tout de même bien mieux Sam que Dor, non, que j’ignore duquel des deux cerveaux proviennent blagues, expressions intéressantes, vidéos de canards danseurs ou de chats amusants non. Je suis pote avec des êtres humains, les hydres à deux têtes c’est pas vraiment mon truc. Mériteraient presque qu’on leur fasse envoyer des messages par d’autres copains pour provoquer un conflit sur leurs messagerie sur le thème "C’était trop bien hier Dor. Tu étais un vrai lion" ou "Je sais que tu m’aimes Sam mais rien n’est possible entre nous tant que tu n’auras pas largué Dor". Rien que pour leur apprendre.
Un compte Facebook à deux la version web de ces couples énervants toujours scotchés l’un à l’autre, partageant badminton, club d’escalade, destruction mutuelle de leur forfait de portable et qu’il est interdit de ne pas voir l’un sans l’autre. Du trentenaire pénible. Des fois le bébé est ajouté en option. On en serait presque à souhaiter le jet dans le Rhône de tous les trentenaires en couple qui vont sur Facebook. Mais je nage trop mal.

Pit Bull Cock Fights Used as Networking Tool for Drug Traffickers
AUG 09 -- LAKE CHARLES, La. + The main organizer and supervisor of a lucrative drug trafficking organization responsible for transporting kilogram quantities of cocaine and marijuana from the Brownsville, Texas area, was sentenced on August 5, 2010 to 12.5 years in federal prison, followed by five years supervised release. Pedro Mendez Ramos, 41, of Church Point, La., was sentenced by U. S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi for Continuing a Criminal Enterprise and Money Laundering Conspiracy.
Ramos and seventeen others were indicted on a variety of drug trafficking, money laundering and firearms charges following an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation dubbed “Operation Fowl Play” and “Rio Gallo.” While under Ramos’ direction, this drug trafficking organization was responsible for transporting and distributing cocaine and marijuana from the Brownsville, Texas area to the Church Point, La. area. From Church Point, the drugs would then be distributed to Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, and other parts of Louisiana. Large amounts of drug proceeds would then be transported back to Brownsville, Texas and ultimately, Mexico. Ramos, an avid pit bull and cock fighter, with over three hundred gamecocks and sixty fighting pit bulls of his own, utilized these illegal events as a networking tool in order to recruit members to transport and sell cocaine and marijuana for his organization. The organization utilized various methods to conceal their cocaine, to include tractor trailers and trucks with hidden compartments and gamecock cages with false bottoms. The Ramos organization was supplied cocaine and marijuana directly from members of the Gulf Cartel, a multi-national drug trafficking organization located in Matamoros, Mexico.
At one point, the Ramos organization had amassed so much cash from the sale of cocaine that Pedro Ramos attempted to purchase Canal Oil Refinery, an oil refinery located in Church Point, La. in order to launder the organization’s drug trafficking proceeds. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), in conjunction with state and local law enforcement agencies, seized approximately 111 kilograms of cocaine and approximately 1.8 million dollars from members of Ramos’ drug trafficking organization, along with real property with an estimated value of one million dollars located in both Louisiana and Texas.
Special Agent in Charge Jimmy S. Fox III of the New Orleans Field Division stated, “The coordinated efforts of this investigation not only exposed and dismantled a sophisticated drug trafficking organization, it also helped to cease the brutality and unspeakable cruelty of animals at the hands of inhumane individuals.” U. S. Attorney Finley stated: “Organized drug trafficking threatens our safety, disrupts our communities, and destroys lives. This case is an example of how federal, state and local partnerships can succeed in dismantling large international criminal organizations. Our office is committed to combating drug trafficking in this district.”

Привет-привет, наш уважаемый пользователь. На прошлой неделе очень популярны были танцующие гаишники, менты-беспредельщики и российские "полисмейсцеры". И, конечно, главная тема - конец света в Москве. Хорошо хоть, не полный конец. Мы следим за развитием событий.
1. Народ против! Против беспредела ментов, против злоупотребления властью людей в форме. Блогеры безрезультатно ищут вежливого миллиционера. А ты видел таких? Если да - пришли видео, пожалуйста! А если нет - то смотри еще одно подтверждение.

Rare interview with Fela Kuti found in charity shop in London
fela ransome kuti who re you
Feal Kuti - Rare radio interview found in a charity shop
by Duncan Ballantyne, Label Manager, Soundway Records
"Having recently picked up some old reel to reel tapes at a Help the Aged shop round the corner from my house i was pretty astonished to hear this recording of Fela being interviewed in London just before he went on this major tour with Ginger Baker. Recognise the song in the background? That is the lead track on Soundway's latest album, although a version. We’re particularly fond of the delivery from the presenter but not so keen on his lack of English decorum when it comes to his opinions on Fela’s vocals. A very bizarre coincidence but a happy one and hopefully this will amuse and entertain – check the rare original version of the track on Nigeria Afrobeat Special".
Fela Ransome Kuti Who Re You
Feal Kuti - Rare radio interview found in a charity shop
by Duncan Ballantyne, Label Manager, Soundway Records
For all fans of Fela Kuti and afrobeat here's something a little bit different.
Soundway's latest album, Nigeria Afrobeat Special, is available in February 2010 and those of you who have heard it will no doubt be enjoying the standout lead track by Fela Ransome Kuti called Who're You?.
Who're You? was the third 45 released by the band after their return to Nigeria (after Jeun K'Oku and Na Fight O) and it continues in the same powerful, barnstorming style that they became known for. The record was released in early 1971. Later that year, Fela and Africa 70 travelled to London for a series of concerts with Ginger Baker, which established their reputation there and saw them recording at the EMI studios on Abbey Road.
Here's the interesting part! (Duncan Ballantyne, Label Manager, Soundway Records)

This rates as a comic look at the fast food business and rates one of Bob Chinn best films ever. John Holmes operates a pizza delivery service that adds very special toppings provided by the delivery girls - Desiree, Candida, Chris and Laurien. But Paul Thomas and the fried chicken people enlist the aid of the infamous San Francisco Night Chicken to drive the pizza operation out of business. The sex scenes are exceptionally ludicrous in this very entertaining classic adult movie.

Frances Bean Cobain (born August 18, 1992) is the only child of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole singer Courtney Love.
Frances Bean Cobain was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California at 7:48 am, August 18, 1992. She was named after Frances McKee, the guitarist for the Scottish indie pop duo The Vaselines. The middle name 'Bean' was chosen because Kurt thought she looked like a kidney bean on the ultrasound. Her godfather is R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, and Drew Barrymore is her godmother. She is an only child, raised solely by her mother after her father's death when she was twenty months old.
Starting in August 2010, Cobain will be attending Bard College in Upstate New York.
April 1, 1994 was the last time Cobain saw her father alive. She was visiting him at Exodus Recovery Center, a rehab center in Marina Del Ray, California, he had entered the previous day. According to sources, the two of them played and Kurt sang to her.
On the morning of April 8, 1994, Kurt Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle. A final ceremony was arranged for Cobain by his mother on May 31, 1999, attended by both Courtney Love and Tracey Marander. As a Buddhist monk chanted, Cobain scattered her father's ashes into McLane Creek in Olympia, Washington, the city where he "had found his true artistic muse". The following autumn, Love enrolled Cobain at Happy Medium School in Seattle, now called Giddens School. During her kindergarten year, she attended Highland Hall (a Waldorf school) in Northridge, California.
According to her mother, Cobain is set to inherit "a sweater, a guitar, and the lyrics to 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'" from her father's possessions. Love intends to hold an auction of many other possessions, with a portion of the proceeds going to charity. According to Rolling Stone magazine, the title and cover photograph for Sliver: The Best of the Box, were chosen by Frances. The cover photograph shows a pile of Nirvana and Cobain tapes strewn about, including a copy of the "Fecal Matter" demo.
Before Love gave birth to her daughter, there were rumors suggesting that she used heroin during her pregnancy. This scandal intensified when Vanity Fair published Lynn Hirschberg's article "Strange Love" that alleged Love admitted to taking heroin even after learning of her pregnancy. The response to this article caused serious damage to Love's public standing, and many parenting groups called for their child to be removed from her parents' custody immediately after birth. Along with Cobain, Love maintained that Vanity Fair took her words out of context. After her birth, tabloid reporters questioned if the couple's daughter was born addicted to drugs. Eventually, child welfare services launched an investigation questioning their parenting abilities. The investigation was eventually dismissed, but not without a significant amount of legal wrangling and being removed from her parents' custody for a short time, beginning when she was two weeks old.
During Love's hospital stint in 2003, Cobain was put into the care of her grandmother. Cobain was returned to the custody of Love several months later. In late 2005, Hank Harrison, Cobain's maternal biological grandfather, prepared a brief petitioning the Los Angeles court for visitation rights to the minor child, but the petition was denied. A similar petition was prepared in late 2009 and will be filed pending the final outcome of a 2010 custodial hearing.
On December 11, 2009, a California Superior Court in Los Angeles appointed Wendy O'Connor; her paternal grandmother, and Kimberly Cobain; her father's only biological sibling; as temporary co-guardians of Frances. On December 16, 2009, TMZ reported that a judge had issued a related temporary restraining order, prohibiting Love from having any direct or indirect contact with her daughter.
The custody battle regarding the Cobain Estate is currently ongoing.
To date, Cobain has given four official interviews. In September 2005, a thirteen-year-old Cobain gave her first interview to Teen Vogue where she discussed her personal style and mentions her parents.
Another appeared in the January 2006 issue of i-D, where she expressed negativity over tabloid portrayals of her mother and was quoted as saying, "When you see a lot of lies about her in the tabloids, it can be hurtful."
In August 2006, she was photographed for Elle magazine in her father's famous brown cardigan and pajama pants as part of an article of rock star offspring in their parent's clothing. She explained, "I wore his pajamas because he got married in them to my mom in 1992 in Hawaii so I thought they would be cute if I wore them today. He was too lazy to put on a tux so he got married in pajamas!".
In February 2008, she appeared in a photo spread for Harper's Bazaar.
RIP Childhood Birthday Party
In September 2008, Cobain hosted a suicide-themed party at the House of Blues in Los Angeles to celebrate a "RIP Childhood" 16th birthday. The event was funded by Love, and included a performance from Mindless Self Indulgence. The party was intended to represent the move from childhood to adulthood, creating controversy as to Love's influence and the effect of her late father's death.
Cobain worked as an intern for Rolling Stone magazine from June to August 2008.
Cobain appeared as a guest vocalist on the song "My Space" from the album Evelyn Evelyn by Evelyn Evelyn, which was released March 30, 2010. Amanda Palmer from Evelyn Evelyn clarified that Cobain was one of some 20 artists who sang the same line and whose voices were mixed together in the recording.
In July 2010, Cobain debuted a collection of her artwork titled "Scumfuck" under the pseudonym of "Fiddle Tim" at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles.
From our friends at Cerysmatic Factory comes news of the following event taking place in London in May 20th. It celebrates the release of Shadowplayers: The Rise & Fall of Factory Records, a new book by James Nice of LTM Recordings. LTM is known for their good work, and attention to detail, and I'm sure this book will be no different.
In 1978, a 'Factory for Sale' sign gave Alan Erasmus and Tony Wilson a name for their fledgling Manchester club night. This proved to be the launch of one of the most significant musical and cultural legacies of the late twentieth century. The club's electrifying live scene soon translated to vinyl, and Factory Records went on to become the most innovative and celebrated record label of the next thirty years.
Always breaking new musical ground, Factory introduced the listening public to bands such as Joy Division, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, A Certain Ratio, Section 25, The Durutti Column, Crispy Ambulance and later New Order, James and Happy Mondays - yet its founders' avowed ambition was not chart success but 'a laboratory experiment in popular culture'.
Soundscaped by visionary and troubled producer, Martin 'Zero' Hannett, bolstered by a fierce commitment to its own visual identity, achieved through the iconic sleeve designs and campaigning artwork of Peter Saville, and propelled ever onwards by the inspirational cultural entrepreneur, Tony 'Anthony H.' Wilson, Factory always sought new ways to energise the popular consciousness. Simultaneously a vision and a folly, this restless drive reached its apotheosis in 1982 with the launch of the infamous Haçienda nightclub, a venue which would act as a midwife to the nascent dance culture, but also enjoy a chequered and sometimes violent fifteen-year history.
However, the lofty ideals of Factory's musical and artistic ventures were only sporadically converted into commercial success, and when in 1992 London Records pulled out of a life-saving takeover bid - due to Factory's ideological antipathy to contracts - the fate of Factory Communications Ltd was sealed.
In the years since, the label has become both a legend and a cautionary tale, yet its definitive, authentic story has never been told - until now. Shadowplayers is the most complete, authoritative and thoroughly researched account of how a group of provincial anarchists and entrepreneurs saw off bankers, journalists and gun-toting gangsters to create the most influential, acclaimed and adored music of modern times.
