Maurane - Si aujourd'hui

Si aujourd’hui la terre s’arrêtait de tourner
Je t’emmènerais tranquille de ville en île le nez en l’air
Pour retrouver l’été

Si aujourd’hui la mer devait s’évaporer
Je trouverais dans ma poche une pelle une pioche
Et je sèmerais des fleurs sur les fonds balnéaires

Et si demain matin tu cessais de m’aimer
Je n’peux pas dire que j’en mourrais, non
Faut rien exagérer
Je crois seulement que j’aurais l’air
D’un casino désert, d’une chaise à l’envers
Oubliée sur une table
Je crois que j’aurais l’air assez minable

Si aujourd’hui le vent se mettait en colère
Soufflait immensément, on irait aux étoiles
Dans ma navette à voile pour voir un clair de terre

Si aujourd’hui le ciel devenait un brasier
Je te ferais flamber des soufflés d’ailes d’anges à la liqueur de miel
Et aux zestes d’orange

Et si demain matin tu cessais de m’aimer
Je n’peux pas dire que j’en mourrais, non
Faut rien exagérer
Je crois seulement que j’aurais l’air
D’un casino désert, d’une chaise à l’envers
Oubliée sur une table
Je crois que j’aurais l’air assez minable

Et pourtant là tout de suite
Si je cessais de vivre
En buvant dans tes yeux
Je suis sûr que je ferais
Un fantôme très heureux

Si demain matin tu cessais de m’aimer
Je n’peux pas dire que j’en mourrais, non
Faut rien exagérer
Je crois seulement que j’aurais l’air
D’un casino désert, d’une chaise à l’envers
Oubliée sur une table
Je crois que j’aurais l’air assez minable

Magic Weed: The History Of Cannabis

"Outstanding documentary tracing the 10,000 year old global history of cannabis and hemp plus a host of extras including 'A Day With Howard Marks' PLUS a bonus 5 track Ozric Tentacles CD. The plant's extraordinary story, myths and facts are told through a series of archive footage sequences, which are combined with modern day interviews with leading advocates in the cannabis and hemp movement.

"The Magic Weed examines the origins of the plant in China, its part in medicine, clothing, war and feed stock, as well as its recreational and spiritual usage. It follows the cannabis trail across time and continents exposing the conspiracy behind the banning of hemp and cannabis production in America during the 1920s."

"The legal history of marijuana in the United States mainly involves the 20th and 21st centuries. In the 1800s, marijuana (also referred to as cannabis) was legal in most states, as hemp to make items such as rope, sails, and clothes, and was used for medicinal purposes; however, after the Mexican Revolution of 1910, a flood of Mexicans immigrated to the United States and introduced recreational marijuana use.

"A public misconception that Mexicans and other minorities committed violent crimes while under the influence of marijuana, which caused many states to criminalize marijuana, was promoted by Harry J. Anslinger's media interviews, faulty studies, and propaganda films that claimed marijuana caused violent, erratic, and overly sexual behavior.

"In the 1930s, marijuana was targeted on a federal level with the passage of the Uniform State Narcotic Act, the 1937 Marihuana Tax Act, and the creation of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics. DuPont and William Randolph Hearst played a role in the criminalization of marijuana, as hemp was threatening their company's respective products.

"In the 1950s, strict mandatory sentencing laws substantially increased federal penalties for marijuana possession, but were removed in the 1970s. However, in the 1980s, mandatory sentencing laws where reinstated for large-scale marijuana distribution, three strikes laws were enacted and applied to marijuana possession, and the death sentence was enabled for marijuana drug kingpins."

"Botanists have determined that Cannabis is native to central Asia, possibly extending southward into the Himalayas. Evidence of the inhalation of cannabis smoke can be found as far back as the Neolithic age, as indicated by charred Cannabis seeds found in a ritual brazier at an ancient burial site in present day Romania. The most famous users of cannabis were the ancient Hindus of India and Nepal, and the Hashshashins (hashish eaters) of present day Syria. The herb was called ganjika in Sanskrit (ganja in modern Indian and Nepali languages). The ancient drug soma, mentioned in the Vedas as a sacred intoxicating hallucinogen, was sometimes associated with cannabis.

"Cannabis was also known to the Assyrians, who discovered its psychoactive properties through the Aryans. Using it in some religious ceremonies, they called it qunubu or the drug for sadness. Cannabis was also introduced by the Aryans to the Scythians and Thracians/Dacians, whose shamans (the kapnobatai - "those who walk on smoke/clouds") burned cannabis flowers to induce a state of trance. Members of the cult of Dionysus, believed to have originated in Thrace, are also thought to have inhaled cannabis smoke.

"Cannabis has an ancient history of ritual use and is found in pharmacological cults around the world. Hemp seeds discovered by archaeologists at Pazyryk suggest early ceremonial practices by the Scythians occurred during the 5th to 2nd century BCE, confirming previous historical reports by Herodotus. Some historians and etymologists have claimed that cannabis was used as a religious sacrament by ancient Jews, early Christians and Muslims of the Sufi order."

The Rise And Fall Of The Russian Oligarchs

"Freed from the shackles of communism in the 1990s, Russia seemed to be entering an era of rebirth. But as is often the case in that country, history unfolded harshly. For the majority of Russians, the transition to a market system was painful and chaotic - and anything but democratic. Amid the confusion, a few shrewd and ruthless businessmen exploited the loopholes in the Soviet economy to make fast money, staving off a return to communist rule.

"Nicknamed the Oligarchs, these men, all billionaires, manoeuvred their way into Russia's political inner circle during Glasnost, are credited with Boris Yeltsin's re-election in 1996, and suspected of anointing Vladimir Putin in 1999. They're powerful men with powerful enemies, and they continue to shape Russian society. Dizzying in its detail, The Rise and Fall of the Russian Oligarchs puts modern-day Russia into perspective."

"Business oligarch is a near-synonym of the term "business magnate". The choice of the word oligarch denotes the significant influence such wealthy individuals may have on the life of a nation. However, in modern Russia it is very common to apply this term to any business tycoon, regardless of whether or not he has real political power. The term came into wide circulation after the collapse of the Soviet Union, in reference to those individuals who acquired tremendous wealth in some post-Soviet republics.

"The Russian oligarchs are business entrepreneurs who started under Gorbachev during his period of market liberalization. Rare goods, such as PCs and jeans, were smuggled into the country and sold on the black market for a hefty profit, an unforeseen consequence of partial market liberalization with still excessive trade restrictions. In the 1990s, the oligarchs emerged as well connected entrepreneurs who started from nearly nothing and got rich through participation in the market via connections to the corrupt, but democratically elected, government of Russia during the state's transition to a market-based economy."

"Post-Soviet business oligarchs includes relatives or close associates of government officials, even government officials themselves as well as criminal bosses who achieved vast wealth by acquiring state assets very cheaply (or for free) during the privatization process controlled by the Yeltsin government. Specific accusations of corruption are often levelled at Anatoly Chubais and Yegor Gaidar, two of the 'Young Reformers' chiefly responsible for 'shock therapy' privatization in the early 1990's."

WACO: The Rules of Engagement

"The first full-length documentary film to present the complete picture of the series of events outside Waco, Texas during 1993 that resulted in the shooting of 4 federal agents and the deaths of 86 men, women, and children of the Branch Davidian religious sect.

"A highly detailed examination of the interaction between David Koresh, his members, and Federal Law Enforcement. It shows how the FBI misled the public and American political leaders in order to focus overwhelming force on a group whose diversity of race, national origin, and apocalyptic religious beliefs made its members easy targets for lethal abuse of civil and human rights. Gripping and deeply thought provoking, the film provides America with something it truly needs - an opportunity to review the historical record of events at Waco. The findings raise doubts about the FBI's version of the story and their larger role in similar instances of law enforcement."

Que sont mes amis devenus
Que j'avais de si près tenus
Et tant aimés
Ils ont été trop clairsemés
Je crois le vent les a ôtés
L'amour est morte
Ce sont amis que vent emporte
Et il ventait devant ma porte
Les emporta

Avec le temps qu'arbre défeuille
Quand il ne reste en branche feuille
Qui n'aille à terre
Avec pauvreté qui m'atterre
Qui de partout me fait la guerre
Oh vent d'hiver
Ne convient pas que vous raconte
Comment je me suis mis à honte
En quelle manière

Que sont mes amis devenus
Que j'avais de si près tenus
Et tant aimés
Ils ont été trop clairsemés
Je crois le vent les a ôtés
L'amour est morte
Le mal ne sait pas seul venir
Tout ce qui m'était à venir
M'est avenu

Pauvre sens et pauvre mémoire
M'a Dieu donné le Roi de gloire
Et pauvre rente
Et droit sur moi quand bise vente
Le vent me vient
Le vent m'évente
L'amour est morte
Ce sont amis que vent emporte
Et il ventait devant ma porte
Les emporta
Les emporta...

Georges Brassens - Auprès de mon arbre

J'ai plaqué mon chêne
Comme un saligaud
Mon copain le chêne
Mon alter ego
On était du même bois
Un peu rustique un peu brut
Dont on fait n'importe quoi
Sauf naturell'ment les flûtes
J'ai maint'nant des frênes
Des arbres de judée
Tous de bonne graine
De haute futaie
Mais toi, tu manque à l'appel
Ma vieille branche de campagne
Mon seul arbre de Noël
Mon mât de cocagne

Auprès de mon arbre
Je vivais heureux
J'aurais jamais dû
M'éloigner d' mon arbre
Auprès de mon arbre
Je vivais heureux
J'aurais jamais dû
Le quitter des yeux
Je suis un pauvr' type
J'aurais plus de joie
J'ai jeté ma pipe
Ma vieill' pipe en bois
Qu'avait fumé sans s' fâcher
Sans jamais m'brûlé la lippe
L'tabac d'la vache enragée
Dans sa bonn' vieill' têt' de pipe
J'ai des pip's d'écume
Ornées de fleurons
De ces pip's qu'on fume
En levant le front
Mais j'retrouv'rai plus ma foi
Dans mon cœur ni sur ma lippe
Le goût d'ma vieill' pipe en bois
Sacré nom d'un' pipe

refrain ..

Le surnom d'infâme
Me va comme un gant
D'avecques ma femme
J'ai foutu le camp
Parc' que depuis tant d'années
C'était pas un' sinécure
De lui voir tout l'temps le nez
Au milieu de la figure
Je bas la campagne
Pour dénicher la
Nouvelle compagne
Valant celles-là
Qui, bien sûr, laissait beaucoup
Trop de pierr's dans les lentilles
Mais se pendait à mon cou
Quand j'perdais mes billes

refrain ..

J'avais un' mansarde
Pour tout logement
Avec des lézardes
Sur le firmament
Je l'savais par cœur depuis
Et pour un baiser la course
J'emmenais mes bell's de nuits
Faire un tour sur la grande ourse
J'habit' plus d' mansarde
Il peut désormais
Tomber des hall'bardes
Je m'en bats l'œil mais
Mais si quelqu'un monte aux cieux
Moins que moi j'y paie des prunes
Y a cent sept ans qui dit mieux,
Qu' j'ai pas vu la lune

Jane Goodall: What separates us from the apes?

"Traveling from Ecuador to Africa, Jane Goodall takes the audience on an ecological journey, discussing highlights and low points of her experiences in the jungle. She shows how progress is helping research (DNA analysis) and hurting the environment (clear-cutting). And she draws a dozen parallels between primate and human behavior, making the point that we really aren't all that different. Our big advantage, she says, is the ability to communicate with sophisticated spoken language -- yet, sadly, we are abusing this power and destroying the planet. She urges the TED audience to behave differently, and use their higher powers to correct the planet's course."

Bush Appoints Himself Dictator Under National Emergency

"Bush signs unconstitutional "power grab" presidential directives NSPD51 and HSPD20, giving him full-dictatorial powers in the event of a loosely defined "catastrophic emergency."

"The directives define "catastrophic emergency" as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government function."

"It also states that "The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government." In other words, the president gave himself the sole power and duty to interpret the constitution anyway he chooses, and neither Congress nor the public shall be allowed to debate or disagree on such matters."

"Right now, the only thing standing between democracy and Bush's apparent desire to rule with an iron fist is a lesser event than that of 9/11."

Legend of Atlantis - Part 2 - The Secret Brotherhood Of Atlantis

"Following the catastrophe in Atlantis all nations were dispersed. A part of the Atlantean brotherhood's secret knowledge survived in Egypt, in India and in Tibet. The heirs of these secret brotherhoods led mankind during the dark age...through Atlantean knowledge and through all ages. In modern times the Freemasons, Templars and Illuminati brotherhoods were formed. After World War I the Neutemplerorden and Thule society emerged in Munich and Vienna. New occult sects which saw 'satan' in the old Freemason lodges. With Hitler these occult sects came to power. This thrilling documentation shows for the first time the background of the Third Reich and its intellect which led to the catastrophy of World War II."

Secrets Of The Crocodile Caves

"Crocodiles are famously sun-loving reptiles, so why would they live in complete darkness in cool, dank caves? And where else would they do it but in Madagascar, home to some of the most unusual creatures ever to evolve on Earth? On "Secrets of the Crocodile Caves," NOVA ventures into a wilderness unlike any other.

"The program explores the mystery of the croc caves and probes other wildlife haunts within spectacular Ankarana reserve, a setting of ancient coral mountains with needle-sharp ridges and spooky caverns overlooking a lush dry forest. No other place like it exists, which is why scientists such as French crocodile expert Olivier Behra come to Ankarana to observe creatures and behaviors that are unique—and strange.

"Located near the northern tip of Madagascar, Ankarana is a natural fortress that has preserved many of the island's distinctive species, which took a markedly different evolutionary path from life on the African continent, 250 miles away. The island is especially renowned for its lemurs, which belong to a suborder of primates called prosimians that are more ancient than monkeys or apes. As the only primates on the premises, the prosimians flourished, diverging into dozens of different types including the crowned lemur, which PBS NOVA investigates in a picturesque colony presided over by a one-eyed queen."

"Then there's the fossa, a lithe and lethal predator that's truly hard to describe. "The fossa looks a little bit like a cat, it looks a little bit like a dog, and it looks a little bit like a hyena," says American biologist and fossa tracker Luke Dollar. "But it's actually none of those things. The fossa is actually a really big mongoose. It's like a mongoose on steroids." Chameleons also populate the island in profusion, thanks to fruitful mating—an impressive ritual captured in fascinating detail by NOVA's cameras.

"But the star of the show is the Nile crocodile, which swam over eons ago from Africa and has since adopted some unusual habits. The most puzzling is its predilection, at least at Ankarana, for caves, an unlikely haunt for a cold-blooded creature that normally basks in the sun and consumes abundant riverine fauna—including 100 hapless humans a year on Madagascar. To solve this riddle, naturalist Behra cautiously ventures into the croc's underground lair—as do a troop of curious, thirsty, and very cautious lemurs.

"Located near the northern tip of Madagascar, Ankarana ("an-KAR-ana") is a place like no other on Earth. It is a spectacularly eroded limestone massif shot through with caves, forest-filled canyons, and underground rivers. Certain plants and animals found here, including a species of blind shrimp, live nowhere else in Madagascar, much less the world. There are also lemurs, chameleons, and the world's only known cave-living crocodiles.

"Crocodiles are not the only crocodilians. There are also caiman, gavials, and of course alligators. All told, these hardy reptiles are found in 91 countries—from Belize's freshwater pools, where Morelet's crocodile lurks, to the marshy riverbeds of China's Yangtze River, home to the world's most endangered crocodilian, the Chinese alligator. With this interactive map, get to know each species with photos and information on its diet, habitat, size, and more.

"Crocodiles inspire fear, which may have something to do with their coolly dominating presence. After all, for nearly 100 million years during the Mesozoic era (248-65 million years ago), the crocodilian order ruled the Earth. Today's crocodiles have changed remarkably little since then. They are still the most advanced reptile species, and they still terrify most people. In this feature, we ask that you put aside your fears and get up close and personal with a Nile crocodile."
