"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already
earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake,
since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to
civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command,
senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how
violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I
would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action!
It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing
but an act of murder."

Army recruiters to students: "Iraq war is over"

US Army recruiters were secretly videotaped lying about the Iraq war to students working undercover for ABC news. The recruiters promised the students that the war in Iraq had ended and that they wouldn't be sent overseas. 105 troopers died in Iraq last month alone. One recruiter helped a student posing as a drug-addled dropout to forge his papers in order to gain admission.

"Nobody is going over to Iraq anymore?" one student asks a recruiter.

"No, we're bringing people back," he replies.

"We're not at war. War ended a long time ago," another recruiter says.

Philly Music Scene - audio

I don't have consistent internet access at my apartment at the moment and couldn't figure how to upload 10 seconds of this audio in time for class.

This is the Subliminal Orphans myspace site:

On it is the song "Double Dippin"

This hip hop live music band consists of friends of mine who reside in Philadelphia.

I plan to find a way to attach 10 seconds of audio from the song "Double Dippin" to my blog.

UPDATE! not using "Double Dippin." I'm using the song "Boom!"

"New businesses in Fishtown are clearly looking to attract new residents with high disposable incomes. The area claimes five antique shops--including Hip-E-Chic, which sells everything from sexy fishnet stockings and bellybutton rings to vintage dresses and retro furniture.

Johnny Brenda's Tavern, open since September, draws a steady stream of hipsters from the neighborhood and beyond. DJs spin punk and indie rock while patrons down regionally brewed beers.

There are other signs of gentrification taking hold. For decades locals got their exercise playing hoops at the Fishtown rec center or splashing around the "swimmo"--the public pool. Now there's a yoga studio in the neighborhood. Property values are moving faster than a Harley racing to the Handle Bar. Fishtown homes now routinely fetch $200,000 and more.

But the most definitive sign that gentrification is well underway is that parking along Girard Avenue has become a challenge."
