If anyone has suggestions for music posts, feel free to comment. Also, if you see an asterisk next to any ofthe above mentioned bands, it means I need help with getting some stuff I'm either missing or was lost from my collection - so if you have any of it you can contribute, preferrably full albums, I'd appreciate you sharing - full credit in upcoming posts for your efforts, of course.

CAD703D is a limited edition of 10000 with some extra artwork. CAD703X is a deluxe limited edition wooden box (100 of them exists) containing all the different editions of Lonely Is An Eyesore and some additional prints. About the box: 30 were released for sale (200 pounds each directly from 4AD), 70 were given away to the bands, distibutors of 4AD material and others. The prints were rather expensive, bringing the cost of production of the box up to 500 pounds. There are two prints, one 15x20 cm (etching) by Jinny m'Garrity, where small details differ from box to box. The other is larger, 100x200cm (by Terry Dowling), printed on rice paper. The prints were wrapped in a sealed plastic-like paper. During the end titles on the video, an instrumental version of «Oomingmak» is played. This can also be found on the 10 Disc CD Collection. «Hot Doggie» samples from the films «Lifeforce» («Here I go», «be with me» & «Close your eyes, I love you»), «Evil Dead» («You will die, lover boy» & «one by one» + the chainsaw), «The Last Starfighter» («Soon the frontier will be down etc») and «2000 Maniacs» («Let's hear some music» & «We've got us some goods»).

From Truthdig: Pat Tillman's Brother Speaks Out - READ EVERY WORD & REPOST

After Pat’s Birthday

Posted on Oct 19, 2006

By Kevin Tillman

Editor’s note: Kevin Tillman joined the Army with his brother Pat in 2002, and they served together in Iraq and Afghanistan. Pat was killed in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004. Kevin, who was discharged in 2005, has written a powerful, must-read document.

It is Pat’s birthday on November 6, and elections are the day after. It gets me thinking about a conversation I had with Pat before we joined the military. He spoke about the risks with signing the papers. How once we committed, we were at the mercy of the American leadership and the American people. How we could be thrown in a direction not of our volition. How fighting as a soldier would leave us without a voice… until we got out.

Much has happened since we handed over our voice:

Somehow we were sent to invade a nation because it was a direct threat to the American people, or to the world, or harbored terrorists, or was involved in the September 11 attacks, or received weapons-grade uranium from Niger, or had mobile weapons labs, or WMD, or had a need to be liberated, or we needed to establish a democracy, or stop an insurgency, or stop a civil war we created that can’t be called a civil war even though it is. Something like that.

I swear, this is one of the most amazing things I've ever heard a servicemember - active duty or not - ever say, and it fucking ripped my heart out.

Uncle Creepy Moves To Atlanta

Atlanta residents be warned: John Mark Karr lives here
A neighborhood group is warning members that the man who was briefly a suspect in the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey is now living in the community with his father.

The Chastain Park Civic Association sent an e-mail Thursday to its 2,000 member homeowners announcing that John Mark Karr had moved into his father's home in the well-to-do Atlanta neighborhood, where houses sell for more than $600,000.

The e-mail noted that Wex Karr's house is about three blocks from a playground.
