Bel Canto Negro Girl Gets Even...

TLASILA - Maria Callas vs. Drunks with Guns

La Divina of course got her start with Tony James and Mick Jones in the London SS before moving to Belgrade in mid '76 where she joined seminal Yugo punks Radnička Kontrola. DC natives Drunks with Guns emerged from Gallaudet University's SBG (Student Body Government) where they helped found the Erase the Hate program and proved their mettle as songwriters by contributing to the libretto of the Off-Broadway adaptation of Deaf Side Story: Deaf Sharks, Hearing Jets, and a Classic American Musical.

Linked from HuffPo: Shock Doctrine Confab

Good Morning,

After watching John Cusack's Huffington Post interview with Naomi Klein, the perspicacious author of The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, I'm moved first to wolf down her tome and second, to finally devise a plan for getting the fuck out of America for good. Klein's insights are indeed revelatory; her extrapolations have often horrifying implications. This, and today's Times' op-ed on the sickening rightward lurch of the Supreme Court have made me nervous as Hell and in need of a 14-year-old single malt, neat, and a one-way, first-class ticket on Finnair. (Jesus, even Grozny-Avia would do...)

Prepare for the worst.
