Léo Ferré - La beauté

Je suis belle, ô mortels! comme un rêve de pierre,
Et mon sein, où chacun s'est meurtri tour à tour,
Est fait pour inspirer au poète un amour
Eternel et muet ainsi que la matière.

Je trône dans l'azur comme un sphinx incompris;
J'unis un coeur de neige à la blancheur des cygnes;
Je hais le mouvement qui déplace les lignes,
Et jamais je ne pleure et jamais je ne ris.

Les poètes, devant mes grandes attitudes,
Que j'ai l'air d'emprunter aux plus fiers monuments,
Consumeront leurs jours en d'austères études;

Car j'ai, pour fasciner ces dociles amants,
De purs miroirs qui font toutes choses plus belles:
Mes yeux, mes larges yeux aux clartés éternelles!

Our Planet - Caves

"The Cave of Swallows in Mexico is a 400m vertical shaft, deep enough to engulf the Empire State Building. The Lechuguilla cave system in the USA is 193km long with astonishing crystal formations. Caves are remarkable habitats with equally bizarre wildlife. Cave angel fish cling to the walls behind waterfalls with microscopic hooks on their fins. Cave swiftlets navigate by echo-location and build nests out of saliva. The Texas cave salamander has neither eyes nor pigment. Planet Earth gets unique access to a hidden world of stalactites, stalagmites, snotites and troglodytes."

Your House Without You

"In The World Without Us, Alan Weisman offers an utterly original approach to questions of humanity's impact on the planet: he asks us to envision our Earth, without us.

"In this far-reaching narrative, Weisman explains how our massive infrastructure would collapse and finally vanish without human presence; what of our everyday stuff may become immortalized as fossils; how copper pipes and wiring would be crushed into mere seams of reddish rock; why some of our earliest buildings might be the last architecture left; and how plastic, bronze sculpture, radio waves, and some man-made molecules may be our most lasting gifts to the universe.

Conspiracies: Iraq

"Simon Reeve investigates the real reasons for the war in Iraq. Starting with oil and the contracts set up between Saddam and non-American/British companies. The latter part of the film looks at the petro-dollar cycle and how OPEC members can threaten US power by using the euro to trade oil - could Iran be next?"

Reese Erlich - The US and Iran: The Real Story

"Foreign correspondent Reese Erlich, author of the soon-to-be-published book, "The Iran Agenda: The Real Story of US Policy and the Middle East Crisis," speaks about his recent trips to Iran researching his book.

"Reese Erlich's history in journalism goes back 39 years. He first worked as a staff writer and research editor for Ramparts, an investigative reporting magazine published in San Francisco from 1963 to 1975. Today he works as a full-time print and broadcast, freelance reporter. He reports regularly for CBC, ABC (Australia), Radio Deutche Welle and National Public Radio. His articles appear in the San Francisco Chronicle, St. Petersburg Times and the Dallas Morning News. His television documentaries have aired on PBS stations nationwide.

"Erlich’s book, Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn't Tell You, co-authored with Norman Solomon, became a best seller in 2003. His latest book, The Iran Agenda: the Real Story of U.S. Policy and the Middle East Crisis, will be in bookstores in October 2007. (Forward by Robert Scheer.)

"His magazine articles have appeared in San Francisco Magazine, California Monthly, California Lawyer, Mother Jones, The Progressive, The Nation, AARP’s Segunda Juventud, and he has worked as a consultant to National Geographic.

"In June 2005 he traveled to Iran with Norman Solomon and Sean Penn. Erlich’s photos accompanied Penn’s 5-part series about the trip that appeared in the SF Chronicle and in an A&E documentary of Penn.

"In 2004 Erlich’s radio special “Children of War: Fighting, Dying, Surviving,” won a Clarion Award presented by the Association for Women in Communication and second and third place from the National Headliner Awards. His article about the U.S. use of depleted uranium ammunition was voted the eighth most-censored story in America for 2002-2003 by Project Censored at Sonoma State University. In 2002 his radio documentary, “The Russia Project,” hosted by Walter Cronkite, won the Depth Reporting Prize for Broadcast Journalism awarded by the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists."

Sweet Misery - A Poisoned World

"Excellent documentary showing how dangerous artificial sweetner Aspartame is. From its history, to its effects this video is enough to shock anyone into really looking at there food labels next time they shop. Aspartame is a toxic food that came into the world as an investment by Donald Rumsfeld, while ignoring the deadly effects the tests showed. Take a good look at this video, it could save lives."

Our Planet - Seasonal Forests

"The Taiga forest, on the edge of the Arctic, is a silent world of stunted conifers. The trees may be small but filming from the air reveals its true scale. A third of all trees on Earth grow here and during the short summer they produce enough oxygen to change the atmosphere. In California General Sherman, a giant sequoia, is the largest living thing on the planet, ten times the size of a blue whale. The oldest organisms alive are bristlecone pines. At more than 4,000 years old they pre-date the pyramids. But the baobab forests of Madagascar are perhaps the strangest of all."

Jane Goodal Among The Wild Chimpanzees

"This documentary examines the nearly 30 years worth of primate research conducted by Jane Goodall. In 1960, Goodall arrived in Tanzania and became a fixture in the Gombe Reserve, a wildlife refuge. Here she began her lengthy study of wild chimpanzees and their social structure.

"By not interfereing in the chimps lives, but always being present, Goodall gained a moderate level of acceptance from her subjects, allowing her to observe the most intimate of these primates social interactions.

"National Geographic: Among the Wild Chimapanzees accompanies Goodall as she explains her work and points out several chimp actions for the camera, including a now famous scene of chimps using tools to gather food. --Ed Atkinson, All Movie Guide

"Dr.Jane Goodall, UN Messenger of Peace, is an English primatologist, ethologist and anthropologist. She is best-known for her study of chimpanzee social and family life in Gombe Stream National Park for 45 years and for founding the Jane Goodall Institute.

"Goodall is best known for her study of chimpanzee social and family life. In 1977, Goodall established the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), which supports the Gombe research and is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. Today, Goodall devotes virtually all of her time to advocating on behalf of chimpanzees and the environment, traveling nearly 300 days a year.

"Goodall was instrumental in the study of social learning, primate cognition, thinking and culture in wild chimpanzees, their differentiation from the bonobo, and the inclusion of both species, along with the gorilla, as Hominids.

"One of Goodall's major contributions to the field of primatology was the discovery of tool-making in chimpanzees. She discovered that some chimpanzees alter pieces of grass or twigs and then poke them into termite mounds. The termites would grab onto the blade of grass or twig with their mandibles and the chimpanzees would then just pull the grass out and eat the termites.

"Though many animals had been clearly observed using "tools", previously, only humans were thought to make tools, and tool-making was considered the defining difference between humans and other animals. This discovery convinced several scientists to reconsider their definition of being human.

"Goodall also set herself apart from the traditional conventions of the time in her study of primates by naming the animals she studied, instead of assigning each a number. This numbering was a nearly universal practice at the time, and thought to be important in the removal of one's self from the potential for emotional attachment to the subject being studied.

"Goodall has received many honors for her environmental and humanitarian work, as well as others. She was named a Dame Commander of the British Empire in a ceremony held in Buckingham Palace in 2004. In April 2002, Secretary-General Kofi Annan named Dr. Goodall a United Nations Messenger of Peace. Her other honors include the French Legion of Honor, Medal of Tanzania, Japan's prestigious Kyoto Prize, the Benjamin Franklin Medal in Life Science, and the Gandhi-King Award for Nonviolence. She is also a member of the advisory board of BBC Wildlife magazine.

"Goodall is honored by the Walt Disney Company with a plaque on the The Tree of Life at Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom theme park, alongside a carving of her beloved David Greybeard, the original chimp who approached Goodall during her first year at Gombe. The story goes that when she was invited to visit the developing Animal Kingdom park as a consultant and saw the Tree of Life, she didn't see a chimp as part of the tree. To rectify this situation, the Imagineers added the carving of David Graybeard and the plaque honoring her at the entrance to the It's Tough to be a Bug! show.

"Cartoonist Gary Larson once drew a cartoon that showed two chimpanzees grooming. One finds a human hair on the other and inquires, "Conducting a little more 'research' with that Jane Goodall tramp?" The Jane Goodall Institute thought this to be in bad taste, and had their lawyers draft a letter to Larson and his distribution syndicate, in which they described the cartoon as an "atrocity." They were stymied, however, by Goodall herself, who revealed that she found the cartoon amusing. Since then, all profits from sales of a shirt featuring this cartoon have gone to the JGI."

Operation Gladio - Behind False Flag Terrorism & 9/11

"The first of three programmes about the "Gladio" network of secret agents operating in Europe, and discusses the network's creation, after the end of the Second World War, from a group of Nazis remaining in occupied territories and in resistance to the rise of communism. It reveals the role of the CIA in the political affairs of post-war Europe through their manipulation of "Gladio" and the network's influence in the internal affairs of almost every European country.

"In the second of three programmes exploring the influence of "Gladio", the state-sponsored terrorist network organisation operating in Europe is exposed. This programme examines the Bologna railway bombing in 1980 ostensibly by the Red Brigade. The programme argues that the Brigade had been inflitrated by right-wing agents who conducted a series of atrocities that so terrified citizens that they called for greater state security.

"The third of these three programmes explores the kidnapping and subsequent of murder of Aldo Moro.

"All this is essential to understanding the networks that carry out false flag terrorism, and the roots behind 9/11.

"These documentaries were originally aired on BBC2 in 1992."

J'entends mourir et remourir un chant lointain

Misogynie à part, le sage avait raison
Il y a les emmerdant's, on en trouve à foison
En foule elles se pressent
Il y a les emmerdeus's, un peu plus raffinées
Et puis, très nettement au-dessus du panier
Y a les emmerderesses

La mienne, à elle seul', sur tout's surenchérit
Ell' relève à la fois des trois catégories
Véritable prodige
Emmerdante, emmerdeuse, emmerderesse itou
Elle passe, ell' dépasse, elle surpasse tout
Ell' m'emmerde, vous dis-je

Mon Dieu, pardonnez-moi ces propos bien amers
Ell' m'emmerde, ell' m'emmerde, ell' m'emmerde, ell' m'emmer-
de, elle abuse, elle attige
Ell' m'emmerde et j'regrett' mes bell's amours avec
La p'tite enfant d'Marie que m'a soufflée l'évêque
Ell' m'emmerde, vous dis-je

Ell' m'emmerde, ell' m'emmerde, et m'oblige à me cu-
rer les ongles avant de confirmer son cul
Or, c'est pas callipyge
Et la charité seul' pouss' ma main résignée
Vers ce cul rabat-joie, conique, renfrogné
Ell' m'emmerde, vous dis-je

Ell' m'emmerde, ell' m'emmerde, je le répète et quand
Ell' me tape sur le ventre, elle garde ses gants
Et ça me désoblige
Outre que ça dénote un grand manque de tact
Ça n'favorise pas tellement le contact
Ell' m'emmerde, vous dis-je

Ell' m'emmerde, ell' m'emmerde , quand je tombe à genoux
Pour cetain's dévotions qui sont bien de chez nous
Et qui donn'nt le vertige
Croyant l'heure venue de chanter le credo
Elle m'ouvre tout grand son missel sur le dos
Ell' m'emmerde, vous dis-je

Ell' m'emmerde, ell' m'emmerde, à la fornication
Ell' s'emmerde, ell' s'emmerde avec ostentation
Ell' s'emmerde, vous dis-je
Au lieu de s'écrier: " Encor ! Hardi ! Hardi ! "
Ell' déclam' du Claudel, du Claudel, j'ai bien dit
Alors ça, ça me fige

Ell' m'emmerde, ell' m'emmerde, j'admets que ce Claudel
Soit un homm' de génie, un poète immortel
J'reconnais son prestige
Mais qu'on aille chercher dedans son œuvre pie
Un aphrodisiaque, non, ça, c'est d'l'utopie

À tous mes loupés, mes ratés, mes vrais soleils
Tous les chemins qui me sont passés à côté
À tous mes bateaux manqués, mes mauvais sommeils
À tous ceux que je n'ai pas été

Aux malentendus, aux mensonges, à nos silences
À tous ces moments que j'avais cru partager
Aux phrases qu'on dit trop vite et sans qu'on les pense
À celles que je n'ai pas osées
À nos actes manqués

Aux années perdues à tenter de ressembler
À tous les murs que je n'aurais pas su briser
À tout c'que j'ai pas vu tout près, juste à côté
Tout c'que j'aurais mieux fait d'ignorer

Au monde, à ses douleurs qui ne me touchent plus
Aux notes, aux solos que je n'ai pas inventés
Tous ces mots que d'autres ont fait rimer et qui me tuent
Comme autant d'enfants jamais portés
À nos actes manqués

Aux amours échouées de s'être trop aimé
Visages et dentelles croisés justes frôlés
Aux trahisons que j'ai pas vraiment regrettées
Aux vivants qu'il aurait fallu tuer

À tout ce qui nous arrive enfin, mais trop tard
À tous les masques qu'il aura fallu porter
À nos faiblesses, à nos oublis, nos désespoirs
Aux peurs impossibles à échanger

Five Ways To Save The World

"Climate change is being felt the world over and if global warming continues to increase the effects could be catastrophic.Some scientists and engineers are proposing radical, large-scale ideas that could save us from disaster.Although these ideas might have unknown side effects, some scientists believe we may soon have no choice but to put these radical and controversial plans into action."

UFO Documentary - Multiple Police Reporting UFOs, 5th of January 2000, Illinois, USA

"Darryl Barker is an independentdirector/producer. His documentary coverage of the famous St. Clair County, Illinois triangular UFO sighting by multiple witnesses, including five police officers, was premiered in August, 2000 in St. Louis, Missouri. An updated program, “The Edge of Reality: Illinois UFO, January 5, 2000” was released in 2001.

"It’s now been more than six years and eight months since the sighting of a huge, unidentified triangular-shaped UFO by police officers and civilians in the early morning hours of January 5, 2000, over the state of Illinois. Since that time, the incident has been viewed by many as one of the most substantial UFO sightings in the history of the phenomenon, due almost entirely to the testimonials given by the law enforcement officers involved. As a result of my involvement in the production of a documentary that details this UFO sighting, I have had the opportunity to correspond with some of the witnesses over a period of time and stay in touch with developments regarding the sighting. It has given me the opportunity to see how such an event impacts people’s lives, witnesses and non, and gives me cause to stand back and view the entire picture from what I hope to be a humanitarian perspective.

"April 8, 2004 - Addendum: Key case eyewitness, Officer Ed Barton of the Lebanon, Illinois police department died in January, 2004. A memorial can be found at:"

The Life of Apostle Paul

"The Life of Apostle Paul with Rick Steves journeys to Turkey and Greece with noted public television host Rick Steves and introduce the Apostle Paul, Christianity’s greatest theologian and missionary.

"About two thousand years ago Roman soldiers executed Jesus of Nazareth. The story appeared to be over. But it was just getting started. Within a generation, pockets of Greek, Roman, and Jewish members of a new faith, developed communities throughout the Eastern Mediterranean world. In time, that new faith, Christianity, became the official religion of the Roman Empire.

"This is the story of early Christianity’s greatest missionary and leading theologian - the Jewish Pharisee and tentmaker from Tarsus who became the Apostle Paul."

"This is a film biography of Martin Luther, who started the Protestant Reformation in Germany in the early 1500's. It was produced in part by the Lutheran Church of America and Germany and filmed on original locations with an international cast."

Quand le FMI fabrique la misère

"Avant les années 80, le Ghana était considéré comme un pays en voie de développement prometteur. La crise économique que connaît le pays va amener une situation locale désastreuse au niveau des services de base.

"Le FMI et la Banque Mondiale proposent des prêts au pays, sous la condition dite d'ajustement structurel. Le pays est contraint de s'impliquer dans le libre échange, en orientant la production interne vers l'or et la cacao plutôt que vers les productions vivrières. L'incitation à la "récupération des coûts" va entraîner la privatisation des services publics de base de soins et d'adduction d'eau. L'implantation d'entreprises étrangères est favorisée grâce une politique fiscale avantageuse et une réglementation peu contraignante, notamment vis à vis de l'environnement.

"La richesse en or de la province du Katanga a attiré l'industrie minière. L'état ghanéen a délocalisé la population locale qui vivait de banane plantin, manioc, huile de palme et arachide. Les paysans on touché une indemnisation ridicule, les manifestants ont été éloignés par la force militaire. L'activité d'extraction a stérilisé les champs alentours : les déblais ont envahi les champs de manioc, la pollution métallique affecte l'air et l'eau. Les rizières sont aujourd'hui en jachère..."

The Corporation

"You'd think that things like disasters, or the purity of childhood, or even milk, let alone water or air, would be sacred. But no. Corporations have no built-in limits on what, who, or how much they can exploit for profit. In the fifteenth century, the enclosure movement began to put fences around public grazing lands so that they might be privately owned and exploited. Today, every molecule on the planet is up for grabs. In a bid to own it all, corporations are patenting animals, plants, even your DNA.

"Around things too precious, vulnerable, sacred or important to the public interest, governments have, in the past, drawn protective boundaries against corporate exploitation. Today, governments are inviting corporations into domains from which they were previously barred."

Later they discover that the same man has been selling stolen equipment through an electronics dealer, and they set a trap for him. But he shoots his way out of the trap and escapes. The police must piece together a description of the man's appearance and habits from witnesses and a few small clues, as they search untiringly for a dangerous and very resourceful criminal."

Iraq Veteran Speaks Out On War Crimes

"Testimony from a former U.S. Army Ranger

"Jessie Macbeth, a Former Army Ranger and Iraq War Veteran Tells All

"This 20 minute interview will change how you view the U.S. occupation of Iraq forever. I cannot possibly recommend this more highly. An Iraq war veteran tells of atrocities he and other fellow-soldiers committed reguarly while in Iraq. I have never seen this level of honesty from a U.S. soldier who directly participated in the slaughtering of Iraqis.


""When we were doing the night raids in the houses, we would pull people out and have them all on their knees and zip-tied. We would ask the man of the house questions. If he didn't answer the way we liked, we would shoot his youngest kid in the head. We would keep going, this was our interrogation. He could be innocent. He could be just an average Joe trying to support his family. If he didn't give us a satisfactory answer, we'd start killing off his family until he told us something. If he didn't know anything, I guess he was SOL."

This is a rare bootleg of a film made by Jeanne de Salzmann in collaboration with members of the Gurdjieff Foundation in an effort to preserve a visual record of the sacred movements and dances taught by Gurdjieff ever since he appeared in the West in 1912. Best to watch in silence, alone, in a darkened room:)"

Weird Nature - Fantastic Feeding

Our Planet - Fresh Water

"Fresh water defines the distribution of life on land. Follow the descent of rivers from their mountain sources to the sea. Watch spectacular waterfalls, fly inside the Grand Canyon and explore the wildlife in the world's deepest lake. Planet Earth captures unique and dramatic moments of animal behaviour: a showdown between smooth-coated otters and mugger crocodiles; deep-diving long tailed macaques; massive flocks of snow geese on the wing and a piranha frenzy in the perilous waters of the world's largest wetland."

The Wild Women of Wongo (1945)

"Mother Nature and Father Time try an experiment - they put all the beautiful women in Wongo with stupid, ugly men (brutish is the term used in the flick) and all the handsome men are living on the nearby island of Goona - with their unattractive wives."

Our Planet - Deserts

"Around 30% of the land's surface is desert, the most varied of our ecosystems despite the lack of rain. Saharan sandstorms reach nearly a mile high and desert rivers run for a single day. In the Gobi Desert, rare Bactrian camels get moisture from the snow. In the Atacama, guanacos survive by licking dew off cactus spines. The brief blooming of Death Valley triggers a plague of locusts 65 kilometers wide and 160 kilometers long. A unique aerial voyage over the Namibian desert reveals elephants on a long trek for food and desert lions searching for wandering oryx."

Andrei Krylov - Highway

I chanced upon Andrei Krylov while browsing for good music videos to post in my blog, and was overwhelmed by his brilliant guitar playing and exquisitely beautiful music. Andrei plays not only with his hands and heart, he plays with his deep Russian soul. His musicality is authentic and profound, and he has a flexibility which allows him to master a great number of styles. You should hear him play and sing the blues - the Russian soul seems particularly adapted to interpreting the blues with a depth of feeling and understanding that few others can hope to equal.

Pandora's Box - Episode 5 - Black Power

"A look at how former Ghanaian leader Kwame Nkrumah set Africa ablaze with his vision of a new industrial and scientific age. At the heart of his dream was to be the huge Volta dam, generating enough power to transform West Africa into an advanced utopia. But as his grand experiment took shape, it brought with it dangerous forces Nkrumah couldn't control, and he slowly watched his metropolis of science sink into corruption and debt."
