My Ninja, Please! 7/20/06: Government Monitoring Student Protests

A federal Homeland Security agent reported information about student protests in Berkeley and Santa Cruz on a Pentagon terrorism database, according to documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Information on the protests showed up in the database of a Pentagon program called Threat and Local Observation Notice, or TALON, which the government started in 2003 as a way to collect data that could help stop terrorist attacks. Officials have acknowledged that the reports on protests, which took place in April 2005 against military recruiters on campus, should not have been included and have since removed them.

Just slightly scary.AA Luckily, I practice the art of Shinobi-iri, or else…

Throw Away Your Red Boxes

The Gizmo Project is "keepin’ it phree" by offering free VOIP to landline calls to over 60 different countries.AA Remember that free Skype promo? (oh wait… is that still going on? yes…)AA Well the Gizmo project is about to take a McGruff-sized bite out of their market share with their free service, also offering a skype-in equivalent for about three bucks a month.AA Can’t really beat that.AA How they’re going to make money is basically anybody’s guess but I’ll tell you one thing: they’re keepin’ it so "phr33" that the site is blocked on my job’s proxy server for some reason.

You many now carry on with your civilian life.

Tinariwen!

So for the past couple weeks I been bumpin this CD, Ammasakoul by Touareg group Tinariwen. I done played it out, so now it’s your turn. Peep the song for a little taste.

AAtinariwen_color_300dpi_9x6[1].jpg

From their page on Calabash Music:

"Tinariwen is a Touareg group from the southern Sahara whose music is close to the blues of Ali Farka Toure. The band’s name means "empty places" which certainly reflects their desert homeland…
Radicalized by war and drought, Tinariwen invented a new style of music known as Tishoumaren, or music of the ishumar. Ishumar, which means unemployed, refers to a generation of young, enraged Tamashek exiles: people who left their stomping grounds for work after much repression and drought in Mali. Tinariwen wanted to carry on traditional music, but in exile they could rarely find the 30 or more musicians necessary to play the style. They have combined traditional musical forms with a modern rebellious and radical rock sensibility — traditional instruments such as the teherdent lute and shepherd flute were discarded in favor of the electric guitar, electric bass and drums.

Their Music is loosely based on traditional Touareg music and the harsh melodies of the one-stringed Touareg violin, but also incorporates influences such as Bob Marley together with the other disparate influences, both western and middle eastern, which managed to penetrate that far into the desert."

Listen to the Song

The Art of Ninja Mind Control

A complete mastery of these excercises may open new neural pathways. Novice or ‘weekend’ ninjas be warned: too much time training in the zone can be hazardous to your mental.

"Interactive entertainment for pre-schoolers based on Ragdoll’s Boohbah television show."

(Ed: Y’all have got to check this shit! It is unbelievable. My brain was throbbing with the force for the next 45 minutes.)
