The Flecktones - Dancin' in the District
As I've mentioned before, I am something of a Béla Fleck and the Flecktones fan. In fact, I think they are a jaw-droppingly talented set of musicians, playing music that defies genre. And, as a friend once remarked, "none of those guys plays their instruments the way they're meant to be played!"

So, when ev linked to some blog entry that said, in part:
As a recovering banjo player, I can tell you that no matter how many pathetic musicians try to expand the banjo's range, it will never be any good for anything other than bluegrass and possibly ragtime. I've heard of Bela Fleck and Mark O'Connor and all the other goofs who have thrown their time down the toilet, trying to turn the banjo into a versatile instrument. Guess what? It ISN'T. Jazz banjo is shit. Classical banjo is worse than shit. Rock banjo should be a federal crime. Don't get mad at me. I'm just telling it like it is. And time will prove I'm right. It has so far.


I snorted,

And I guess you never actually listened to any Bela Fleck, either. I won't get mad; I'll just disregard all your rantings about music as worthless.


I just so happened to have a Flecktones CD that I had downloaded from here in the car. I put it in the player and couldn't take it out for a week(!) - even listening to it on both legs of several longish trips. Interestingly, the lone reviewer there said

This is a fairly good show. The sound is good--not too distant or muddled, but there is a little too much audience noise at times (i.e., some casual chatting/talking in a few places).
but I thought it was a pretty darned good show, and the audience noise made it feel more like being there.

Anyway, I decided to rip the CDs to mp3s, and upload them here for your listening pleasure, or at least to form your own opinions.

So, without further ado, here's the Flecktones from June 6, 2002 - the "Dancin' In The District concert series" at Riverfront Park in Nashville TN:

Intro - Tuning Jam
Next
Puffy Is Free
Throwdown at the Hoedown
Big Country
Imagine This
Vic Solo
Sherpa
Bela solo
Stomping Grounds
Arjuna
Moment So Close
Hoedown
encore - Flight of the Cosmic Hippo

Enjoy!

For all you nerds, here's the technical recording information. :-)
Oh, and I even found album artwork online!

The Hijab Ninjas
Because the Middle East needed more killers, Fatah has established a new unit of female suicide bombers. One hundred women have been recruited so far and they'll apply their skills and talents not only to murdering Jews but also murdering Hamas terrorists who have murdered other Fatah terrorists.

That's called branching out, I guess.

Discard Amerikkka's Lies: Today Is A Good Day To Sniff Glue
In which we blow your mind...with SCIENCE!

Thanks to V the K, and pursuant to winning the contest declared here to top the masterful DU scientific debunking of the neo-con Jewish theory that airplanes (hah! airplanes!) brought down the World Trade Center, we have been inspired, yes, inspired!, and we have been hard at work bringing you exciting new scientific theories that prove that BUSH LIED! I have scientifically debunked the silly notion that the Titanic was sunk by an iceberg, and RIP Ford has debunked the myth that Flight 77 hit the Pentagon. What you are about to see will shock you to your very core...this is as close to sitting in an internet electric chair as you're ever likely to get, folks! So put on your seat belts, swallow your tongues, and get ready to have your minds blown. Up. Blown up. Democratic Underground style.

First, RIP Ford's experiment-then mine. I'll hand the microphone over to RIP Ford:

This is RIP Ford speaking: Time was of the essence. My window of opportunity would be small, the risk high and the peril most perilous. I hopped in the debunk-mobile and made my way to the remains of the local defunct consumerist sleaze pit that I successfully lobbied to shut down two years ago. I was called upon by my conscience to conclusively prove or disprove the events at the Pentagon that eventfully September morning.


[Figure 1]
Supplies for this experiment, all purchased at my local Fair Trade™ market that fosters an equitable and sustainable global system of production and trade.


[Figure 2]
Tricky Zionist string caused some minor difficulties, but after about a half hour, I was able to proceed with the experiment.


[Figure 3]
Unable to procure an exact model of the aircraft in question, I went with the next best thing offered up by my local Guilt Free establishment. I feel that the trade off in accuracy is more than made up by my contribution to some poor Ecuadorian craftsman who almost surely needed the money more than that Chinaman's offering at Walmart.


[Figure 4]
This experiment had more than it's share of hazards, but I felt it was my duty as an Dissenting American Patriot to ignore the peril to my own well being to get the truth out to you the public citizen. Here, I found my fingers super glued together.


[Figure 5]
Time for a healthy recharge.


[Figure 6]
The final product, all set to go on it's maiden voyage. I christened her the Truth Seeker, but then realized that personifying the craft in the female tense was sexist and on top of that, I'm a wiccan so I shouldn't be associated with a "christening" anyway. What's the Wicca equivalent? I don't think we have one. I should ask around at the next meet and greet.


[Figure 7]
I suspected all along that I might be followed, but I never believed that they would catch on to my plot so early. After a long diatribe about the rights of the people over the rights of individuals, she snickered at me and offered to call the cops to sort the mess out. Not willing to give up on the chance to stick it to the man and expose the truth to all, I gave in and was escorted of their precious "private property". I got mine in the end as I gave her the bird and she didn't see me.


[Figure 8(a)]
I lost the rent a pig when I got on the Interstate. Ha! Take that Nazi. Just to be sure that I wasn't being followed in the air I made a couple of laps around the airport and it's restricted airspace to make sure they couldn't follow me to my secondary test site. But first, I had a meeting with my cohort on this project, my super seekrit scientist at her place of primary employment.


[Figure 8(b)]
For the purposes of this experiment, I'll call her "Ginger". She's my partner in crime in the quest for TRUTH. We have this special bond that no one around us knows about, and a coded language that only we share. Some day we'll be together 4-ever! I slipped her some bus and lunch money and headed out the door. Refreshed and with a renewed vigor for my quest.


[Figure 9]
The final set up, with modifications that include a used soda can pop top as a guide for the plane. Reduce Reuse Recycle!


[Figure 10]


[Figure 11]
The path of trajectory for the alleged Pentagon Attack on September 11th. Here, I used a cinder block I found in the park covered with tissue paper to properly represent the walls of the building on the morning of the attack. Pretty freakin' brilliant if you ask me.


[Figure 12]
A final shot before test to prove the set up was not doctored after my encounter with the 'authorities". Ready to rumble.

[Video 1] The video documenting the set up.

[Video 2] Experiment 1. The plane went tits up on take off, but much information was learned and a new plan of attack was needed. I call "Gingers" office for consultation, but her good friend Dave the Door Guy answered and told me to quit calling. That's our secret code for it's not safe to talk because the Men in Black have her under surveillance. They always have her under surveillance, she's that dangerous to them. I was on my own.


[Figure 13]


[Figure 14]
Documenting the aftermath and structural failure of the vertical support spar and minor, superficial burns on the lower staggered wing.


[Figure 15]
I decided to move the thrust forward to the more significantly rigid fuselage. Some one stole my super glue, I think it was the Feds, so I need to hurry.


[Figure 16]
Reinforced the connection of the spars to the upper and lower wings. I was assured this added rigidity would not affect the experiment by a delightful homeless man, we'll call him "Barney", who took an interest in the experiment.


[Figure 17]
Prepared for the second Flight

[Video 3] Experiment 3


[Figure 18]
The velocity required sheared off the wings without getting anywhere near the "Pentagon".

I think I've conclusively proven that no airplane constructed with today's materials could withstand the velocity required to pull off such an extreme maneuver. Occam's Razor dictates that since the experiment failed the only possible conclusion that can be accepted is not of hijackers hell bent on our destruction train for months, take over a plane and crash it like they did in New York, but that the government of ChimpyMcZionBushHilter scrambled in the 45 minute window to formulate a plan to launch a cruise missile into the building. I doubt the conclusive proof will change the minds of all the sheeple, but if I reach just one person than all the risk and perilous peril was worth it.

The Truth is Out There Folks.

Peace.

-All right, this is evariste again. Here's my experiment to prove that the Titanic was not sunk by an iceberg, in 7 pages. I set out to prove something very simple, but what I discovered shocked even me! A world-changing conspiracy of the first order. Proceed at your own caution, for here there be some terrifying man-eating tygers of Jewish conspiracies...

A 'post-Catholic' country
Will Ireland be Christian in 2030? According to this article, prosperity, secularization, and the church's sex scandals have have led to a decline in the number of practicing Christians. But if those factors play such a significant role then America would be seeing a decline as well, since America is also a prosperous, secular country, and the church has had its share of sex scandals here too. I believe the difference is that America doesn't have an official church and religion is not tied to our identity as a nation.
As recently as the 1970s, 90 percent of the Irish identified themselves as Catholic and almost the same number went to mass at least once a week; now the figure for mass attendance is closer to 25 percent, according to church officials in Dublin.
How Catholicism fell from grace in Ireland
