The Crack Pipes, Enduro, Me And The Devil, and The Flesh Lights at Emo's Jr. | Events | A.V. Austin

The Crack Pipes, Enduro, Me And The Devil, and The Flesh Lights at Emo's Jr. | Events | A.V. Austin: "In the ’90s, few bands stirred the molten pot of black-tar blooze and muddy Delta-fied punk like Enduro, whose riotous, yelping fuzz would have made Jon Spencer jealous. The group splintered around the turn of the millennium, donating its severed rhythm section to horn-blowing soul brothers The Crack Pipes, but recently reunited to record songs for the independent “youth in revolt” film, Altamont Now. Those good/bad vibes must have lasted, because Enduro returns here for another rip through the Emo’s front room it used to dominate, followed by an always-welcome blast of tent revival rhythm-and-blues from Rev. Ray Pride and the gang."

Johann Hari: Republicans, religion and the triumph of unreason -
Johann Hari, Commentators - The Independent
: "How do they train themselves to be so impervious to reality? It begins, I suspect, with religion. They are taught from a young age that it is good to have 'faith' – which is, by definition, a belief without any evidence to back it up. You don't have 'faith' that Australia exists, or that fire burns: you have evidence. You only need 'faith' to believe the untrue or unprovable. Indeed, they are taught that faith is the highest aspiration and most noble cause. Is it any surprise this then percolates into their political views? Faith-based thinking spreads and contaminates the rational."

Humor Mondays: One Joke To Sum Up Problems of The Music Industry - Musformation

A man is above a valley in a hot air balloon, he sees another man on the ground and yells to him, "Hey! I am stuck up here in this balloon and don't know how to get down! Can you help me?" The man on the ground responds, "Well you either need to get to a high peak... like a hill, and jump off... or maybe wait for it deflate slowly." The man in the balloon then yells back "You must be a record label executive", The man on the ground looks puzzled. The man in the balloon says "You have nothing but very obvious knowledge that is of no use to me whatsoever and are trying to help, but really aren't offering me an answer." To this, the man on the ground replies, "You must be in a band, since you think you know everything and you now blame me for the stupid situation you got yourself into before I ever even met you!"
