The entire situation in Ferguson has me enraged; I live near where Eric Garner was murdered so it’s all hitting very close to home.
I shudder to think what havoc the NYPD would wreak if they had access to the kind of military equipment the cops in Ferguson are using.

The Mind Benders by James Kennaway
A chilling and gripping story of espionage and mind control, James Kennaway’s third novel, The Mind Benders (1963), was a critical success and the basis for a cult classic film version starring Dirk Bogarde.
And Paul wrote the introduction as well — looks to be well worth checking out!
"…what starts off as a fairly romantic and mute portrait of images of African objects (artefacts, idols, objects…we don’t get many geographical details, most of them are introduced as just that: l’art nègre, “black art”, which is a mimicking of the decontextualised exhibition of artefacts from Africa to this day, which become devoid of use, cultural significance or aesthetics, but merely, things), in the last third turns into a blistering attack on colonialism and white racism.” – From The Archives
Couldn’t let today go by without a post to say RIP Jon Lord (9th June 1941 - 16th July 2012) Thank you for the amazing music
Hilma af Klint: Altarpiece, No. 1, Group X, The Dove, No. 3, Group IX, The Swan, No. 17, Group IX (top to bottom). 1913-1915.
Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) was a pioneer of art that turned away from visible reality. By 1906, she had developed an abstract imagery. This was several years before Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) and Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935), who are still regarded as the pioneers of abstract 20th-century art.
Hilma af Klint assumed that there was a spiritual dimension to life and aimed at visualizing contexts beyond what the eye can see. When painting, she believed that she was in contact with a higher consciousness that spoke and conveyed messages through her. Like many of her contemporaries, she was influenced by spiritual movements, especially spiritualism, theosophy and later anthroposophy. Through her paintings, she sought to understand and communicate the various dimensions of human existence. -Dr. M. Bunyan
