Beat It 

Eek. I knew this picture would come back to haunt me someday. There goes any possible political career I might have wished for. (Thanks a lot, Mark!)

Well, to make up for it, please to enjoy this week's SynCast. We've got all sorts of fun stuff -- from throbbing gabber techno to throbbing non-gabber techno. Special thanks to Audio Atrocities™ for the interstitials.

Go See It

You really ought to check out Why We Fight, a superb new film about the nature of US military operations overseas. Transcending the single-administration blinders of F911, it centers on Eisenhower's farewell address, where he famously urged us to be aware of the military-industrial complex. Then it explores how well we've heeded the warning.

It features interviews with many different folks from many walks of life (including Eisenhower's son; a 20-year military analyst who worked for the Department of Special Plans; and a NYC cop whose son died in 9/11), and really succeeds at dissecting the issue in an appropriately complex way.


Why not watch the video for Rockit? Because it's hideous and creepy and it'll give you nightmares, that's why! Freaky stuff!

Today I'm listening to: Prodigy!
