The Japanese have a new word in their lexicon. Flyjins are those foreigners who have fled Japan. The people left behind are anxiously watching which way the wind is going to blow the giant nuclear plume.
For the rest of us there isn’t a lot we can do… Apart from signing this uncompromising petition demanding the worldwide exit from nuclear energy.
The following videos were filmed by Alina Nixdorf:
[NOTE TO READER: for some reason (possibly their revolutionary content) the great eco-corporate Sony has deemed these videos to be restricted access (nice move Sony, you assholes). To get the full effect open the tunes in a new window. : ) ]
The first CD album I ever bought was Emergency on Planet Earth the debut album of Jamiroquai. I was blown away, not just by the wicked tunes and musical groove but by the uncompromising, switched-on message. Undoubtably this album had a profound impact on my 13-year-old mind. There is an emergency on planet earth and these dudes have made a whole album about it!
Remember how good this one is:
Yeah baby! But wait a second… check out this mother… it’s even better!
This was in 1993! This cat was way ahead of his time! But then something went terribly wrong…
Jay Kay post ‘success’
After becoming a multimillionaire popstar, Jay Kay was lured to the Darkside. In particular he became fascinated with the power of long dead organisms, released with fury in the internal combustion engines of his supercars. The fossil fuel fumes must have done something to his brain because since then he is often seen in London, off his nut, getting noticed for all the wrong reasons.
Jay Kay… what happened? Come back to planet earth! We need you now more than ever!
Coolest opening of any tune? Didgin’ Out (I used to repeat the first 5 seconds repeatedly)

Around the world, ripples of defiance are resonating and turning into something bigger. People are waking up to the big scam. It isn’t people in far off lands that we should be fighting. They have the same problem; a degenerate global economy run by unscrupulous, billionaire bastards.
The people who run our economies our driven literally insane with greed. Like Gaddafi and Mubarak and Putin and Berlusconi, they are not happy with 10 million dollars it has to be 10 billion. When they collapsed the economy they didn’t bow out with dignity and let us fix it. They then enacted ‘the biggest heist in history’. The tax payer’s bailout of the banking system took billions from ordinary people and gave it back to the sinister puppet-masters who are not just accumaulating grotesque amounts of wealth; they also own the corporations that are consuming the biosphere.
It has all just kicked off in Wisconsin USA where the Republican governer has attempted to remove collective bargaining rights for public sector workers. This is the last straw and people have now been on the streets for two weeks. Below is the inspirational speech delivered at Wisconsin Capitol in Madison, March 5, 2011 by Michael Moore.
People around the world are waking up to the fact that together we have far more power then the twisted money men. Even taking into account their vast, sick arsenals. Osborne, Cameron, Clegg… brace yourselves… your time is coming and don’t be so sure the police will be as eager to use their batons when they realize you sold them down the river… just like everyone else.
