The Blogmanac: "On This Day" ... and much more

Think universally. Act terrestrially.

For in a hard-working society, it is rare and even subversive to celebrate too much, to revel and keep on reveling: to stop whatever you're doing and rave,
pray, throw things, go into trances, jump over bonfires, drape yourself in flowers, stay up all night, and scoop the froth from the sea.

Dow Bhopal hoax hits wrong mark

Don't get me wrong, I like hoaxes. I've done hoaxes, some that were a good idea at the time, and others that were not.

The hoax that the Yes Men pulled on the BBC this week was brilliantly executed, but they hit the wrong guys. The Beeb is one of the few major media outlets that is likely to show any real support for the victims of Bhopal. The Beeb is also reeling from immense criticism over recent events and needed this blow and all the criticism from reactionary media pundits like a hole in the heart.

The Yes Men are wonderful, and I've supported them here before, but to do this to the BBC was stupid beyond words. (It also briefly inflated the hopes of the Bhopal survivors.) They should have hit CNN, CBS, NBC, Fox ...

No, Yes Men. Better luck next time.

Read The Times on the hoax that backfired

Mind Games Click for John Lennon by John Lennon
We're playing those mind games together
Pushing the barriers, planting seeds
Playing the mind guerrilla
Chanting the mantra, peace on earth
We all been playing those mind games forever
Some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil
Doing the mind guerrilla
Some call it magic, the search for the grail

Love is the answer and you know that for sure
Love is a flower, you got to let it, you got to let it grow

So keep on playing those mind games together
Faith in the future, outta the now
You just can't beat on those mind guerrillas
Absolute elsewhere in the stones of your mind
Yeah we're playing those mind games forever
Projecting our images in space and in time

Yes is the answer and you know that for sure
Yes is surrender, you got to let it, you got to let it go

So keep on playing those mind games together
Doing the ritual dance in the sun
Millions of mind guerrillas
Putting their soul power to the karmic wheel
Keep on playing those mind games forever
Raising the spirit of peace and love.

Love ...
(I want you to make love, not war; I know you've heard it before)
