Buffó Rigó Sándor & 100 Tagú Cigányzenekar

Sándor Buffó Rigó and the 100 Gypsy Yiolins play Brahms' 5th Hungarian Dance. I knew Sándor quite well, he used to come to play in Geneva quite frequently in the nineties. The best moments were when he and fellow Hungarian gypsy musicians would gather in a restaurant and play together after hours. They would then play authentic Gypsy music, and it was exquisitely beautiful.

The Queen of the Gypsies excerpts: Zobar (Табор уходит в небо, 1976)

Wherein you can see the type of Russian Gypsy 7-string guitar with an extra neck and strings, sort of a harp-guitar, which I have for decades longed to have.

The Denial Machine

"In the past few years, a hurricane has engulfed the debate about global warming. This scientific issue has become a rhetorical firestorm with science pitted against spin and inflammatory words on both sides."

The Monkey Prince

"Set in the mountains of Southern India, The Monkey Prince, tells the moving story of two monkeys - Bobo and Jeela. Born on the same day, in the same troop of monkeys, their lives take dramatically different paths.

"Growing up as the son of the troop's dominant female, Bobo enjoys a position at the top of the clan's hierarchy. He is favoured, groomed and protected by the other monkeys, including the group leader - Nine Fingers. Nine Fingers protects the clan from rival monkeys invading from other areas and always ensures order. Unlike Bobo, Jeela as a common female monkey, has no special privileges.

"When Nine Fingers is killed by his long-standing rival, Long Tooth, life for both Bobo and Jeela changes forever. Jeela finds her position in the clan elevated to second dominant female, when Long Tooth chooses her mother as his favourite. Other females in the clan are quick to show their respect to Jeela in order to maintain favour. Bobo, on the other hand is eventually shunned and banished from the clan altogether, his mother and sibling both slain.

"Bobo finds himself for the first time embarking on a life outside his mountain home, isolated and desperate for food. While, from the safety of the mountains, Jeela is left to ponder the fate of her childhood friend, Bobo.

"Somewhere between fact and fiction, “The Monkey Prince”, delves into the destiny of a remarkable monkey and reveals the family life of two herds by showing their territorial wars and their interaction with the human and natural worlds.

"The story takes place in the southern Indian State of Karnataka amidst the ruins of an ancient city inhabited by thousands of monkeys. It is also a legendary place for many Indians. The Ramayana, the great Indian epic, relates that Hanuman, the monkey god, was born there.

"The location inspired many writers including Rudyard Kipling for his “Jungle Book.”"

"Mom" and "Dad" NOT! Banned in California Schools

"Mom" and "Dad" NOT! Banned in California Schools

CALIFORNIA Ban terms "Mom and Dad" From School. "Mom and Dad" as well as "husband and wife" effectively have been banned from California schools under a bill signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who with his signature also ordered public schools to allow boys to use girls restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa, if they choose. WorldNewsDaily
I first got wind of this crap from an email being passed around ubiquitously today. Because the story is so new it cannot yet be checked as a lie or an urban legend. Looking for the truth of the matter on my own I began Googling to find to my horror that there were five pages (I quit looking after 50) of results without a break using any mix of terms regarding this issue I could think of. All fifty linked to some of the most reactionary right wing websites and blogs on the net, and all of those linked back to the original story from WorldNewsDaily. WND.COM is one of the premier lunatic fringe right wing websites operated by Joesph Farah. Farah is best known for writing Rush Limbaugh's second best seller, "See I Told You So".

This is an issue I have been boring everyone to death with for 20 years now. That the single most important dynamic in moving Independents and Moderates to vote Republican has been the issue of Political Correctness which defines Liberals and Democrats as Finger Waving Fascist Nazis. This has been the very essence of the The Rush Limbaugh Program for 20 years.

PC is also the main business of right wing pundit David Horowitz who runs a PC database of sorts, to discover, exaggerate and often lie about cases of PC which he then disseminates to conservative websites, blogs and talk radio hosts who in turn exaggerate and often lie about it. No propaganda campaign has ever worked this well in American history. It is why the GOP became transcendent and George W. Bush is President. For after all, voting for a known moron is a step up from voting for fascist Nazis.

The issue here is that Arnold Schwarzenegger today signed California bill #SB777 which adds "sexual orientation" to the state anti-discrimination statutes. There is also a clause that the minuscule amount of transgender students be allowed to use restrooms of their chosen gender. It also adds Islam and agnostic to define religious instruction. There is nothing about BANNING the words MOM, DAD, POP, MOTHER, FATHER, HUSBAND or WIFE. This is all bullshit, bullshit that has become the truth because Joesph Farah, millions of bogus emails and Google search results say so.

If you missed the point here, it's to try and get THIS article to break the solid string of bullshit Google results...

"If you read this and understand what I am trying to do, it would be cool if we could get this title anchor and link out and about enough to disrupt their unbroken string of Google results. In fact STEAL THIS ARTICLE and put it on your blog or website with the same title or close to it."

To your blogs, friends. :)
