Rev. Frost is so cool

The iconic* and most worshipful Reverend Frost writes (possibly) from his musical manse in France that he has done another deal with the devil at the crossroads:
(*see witty pseudo-holy portrait which could only be better if the ciggy was setting fire to his hair for a total beatific aura)

HELL-HO Y'ALL ! A quick email to let you know that my new bloody cd, 'BLOODY WORKS', is out
 Ah go on, let's be honest here, it's my favorite so far... - 13 tracks (as usual), all by myself (as usual), on a beautiful digipack (as usual),
 the price is 10€ – Shipping Rate Included in Price / Worldwide Shipping - !
(MStacks thinks he has not reckoned on Australian customers)
Due to the economy crisis (haha), only 500 copies pressed - and thanks to our Spanish friends at RadioLux who did a full and exclusive stream of the new album, I had more than 50 pre-orders, so HURRY UP, when there's none left, errr there'll be none left ! This way please:
(Paypal or Secured Credit Card - if other payment, meet me in the church parking lot at midnight)
 So, thanks in advance for your support, and don't forget to Spread The Good Word ! YEAH !!!

vote early


Today at The Guardian - 'whistleblowers play a crucial role in keeping the "public reason" alive. Assange, Manning, Snowden, ... one should not exaggerate the softness of the US: true, the US doesn't treat prisoners as brutally as China or Russia – because of its technological priority, it simply does not need the brutal approach (which it is more than ready to apply when needed). In this sense, the US is even more dangerous than China insofar as its measures of control are not perceived as such, while Chinese brutality is openly displayed. It is therefore not enough to play one state against the other (like Snowden, who used Russia against the US): we need a new international network to organise the protection of whistleblowers and the dissemination of their message. Whistleblowers are our heroes because they prove that if those in power can do it, we can also do it.'

Update after the brawl: at http://vtr.aec.gov.au/SenateStateFirstPrefs-17496-NSW.htm
it is a sad look.  Three states had candidates and of their 9,978,000 registered voters,
64,658 gave the WLP their Primary Vote.
There has been great discussion of the negative effect of the Preferential Voting system, and the ballot paper being more than a human arm-span wide.   We get the government we deserve.  *sigh*
