also vor 32 jahren (und 34 jahre alt) sang joan baez diamonds and rust, irgendwo, aber wahrscheinlich in den usa. sauseschritt war damals auch dort, knappe 20, und hat upstate new york in einem verrückten job gearbeitet, ja, .......

das ist immerhin ein blog und kein beichtstuhl.

5 minutes nostalgie at its best - just listen, jane from nyc and nieves from puerto rico! do you still remember when kenny appeared with a bag full of grass to share?


I'll be damned, here comes your ghost again
but that's not unusual
it's just that the moon is full
and you happened to call

And here I sit, hand on the telephone
hearing the voice I'd known
a couple of light years ago
headed straight for a fall

As I remember your eyes were bluer than robin's eggs
My poetry was lousy you said
Where are you calling from
A booth in the Midwest
Ten years ago I bought you some cufflinks
You brought me something
We both know what memories can bring
they bring Diamonds and Rust

Well you burst on the scene
Already a legend
The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms
And there you stayed
Temporarily lost at sea
The Madonna was yours for free
Yes the girl on the half-shell
Would keep you unharmed

Now I see you standing with brown leaves all around and snow in your hair
Now we're smiling out the window of the crummy hotel over washington square
Our breath comes out white clouds, mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me
we both could've died then and there

Now you're telling me you're not nostalgic
then give me another word for it
you were so good with words
and at keeping things vague

cause I need some of that vagueness now, it's all come back too clearly
yes, I loved you dearly
and if you're offering me diamonds and rust
I've already paid

wired reports, and addresses mr. floso:

(...) Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, R.N., prepares to make a scientific measurement on his 1911-1912 Antarctic expedition.

1912: A search party discovers the bodies of Capt. Robert Falcon Scott and two others in his Antarctic expedition, eight months after they perished on the Ross Ice Shelf on the return leg from the South Pole.

The bodies of Scott, his old friend Dr. Edward Wilson and Henry Bowers lay three abreast inside their tent, which was nearly buried in a snowdrift. The search party, led by Lt.-Surgeon Edward Atkinson, recovered Scott's diary and other documents, performed a burial service, then collapsed the tent over the bodies and built a snow cairn to mark the grave.

It wasn't supposed to end like that (...)

marat wir haben es wahrscheinlich schon immer gewusst, aber wer wollte daran jemals wirklich so denken. herr sarkozy und frau merkel sprechen es aus:

(...) Mit gesteuerter Zuwanderung ist unter anderem die Idee der Blue Card gemeint, welche die EU-Kommission vorgeschlagen hat. Ähnlich der amerikanischen Green Card will die EU mit dieser Arbeitserlaubnis gut ausgebildete und qualifizierte Arbeitskräfte nach Europa holen. Hauptkritik daran: Einerseits sterben an den europäischen Grenzen Immigranten zu Hunderten, wenn nicht Tausenden, andererseits sollen die besten und leistungsfähigsten aus den Entwicklungsländern abgeworben werden, ganz nach dem Motto: Take the best and leave the rest.

Ändern wollen beide nichts an dieser Praxis. Sarkozy sagte, zur Integration gehöre auch, die Zuwanderung zu steuern. Außerdem sei es wichtig für eine erfolgreiche Integration, dass die westlichen Länder die illegale Einwanderung an ihren Grenzen in den Griff bekommen. "Der größte Gegner der Integration ist die illegale Einwanderung", so Sarkozy (...)


sauseschritt entschuldigt sich, er erbricht (ungesteuert, ganz spontan und einfach so). good night, and goodluck.

matthew collin in the moscow times this article reports on people involved in the demonstrations:

(...) Everyone in Tbilisi has their own version of what happened on Nov. 7, the day when riot police put down the largest anti-government demonstrations since the Rose Revolution. The following day, media restrictions were in force under the state of emergency imposed by President Mikheil Saakashvili. Reliable information was hard to find, so I took a trip through my fearful and disturbed city to survey the psychological wreckage.

Outside a hill-top church, high above Tbilisi, scores of young people were milling around, some still wearing white headbands, which were the symbol of the opposition protests, and the medical masks they had used to protect themselves from the tear gas fired by the riot squads.

One young protester said he and his friends had fled in panic when the police charged. Priests helped them hide in the basement of the church. He showed me a rubber bullet that he said had hit him. "Our media is silent now, so you foreign journalists must deliver information about what happened out of the country," he urged. (...)

wie nicht anders zu erwarten, apellieren die einen ans gefühl, wenn es um ein menschenrecht geht, die anderen reagieren in bürokratischer gelassenheit und die dritten (in diesem fall auch das online medium) bedienen sich diskriminierender sprache. warum sollte integrationspolitik (english: inclusion !) hier anders funktionieren als anderswo ? der standard berichtet von den plänen zur umsetzung einer entsprechenden verordnung:

(...) Die Wiener SPÖ verspricht in Sachen Persönliche Assistenz für Behinderte bis Ende des Jahres ein Ergebnis. Man arbeite an einem adäquaten und zeitgemäßen Betreuungsangebot, erklärte die Vorsitzende der Behindertenkommission im Gemeinderat, Erika Stubenvoll (SPÖ), am Montag in einer Aussendung. Die Grünen unterstützten die ÖVP-Forderung nach einem Rechtsanspruch auf die Assistenz (...)

your boss is definitely watching you or could, if he wished. better have a good friend in the it - division! the guardian reports:

(...) For anyone with a case of mild Facebook addiction, finding the time to squeeze a little work in between messing around online has become one of the great challenges of the 21st-century office. So if you are taking a quiet moment at work to read this online, steal a glance over your shoulder now: an investigation by the Guardian has found that employers are taking an increasingly draconian line on workplace time-wasters.

More than 1,700 public employees have been sacked or disciplined for internet or email misuse in the past three years, our research has found.

The figures - obtained from 65 institutions - show how strongly employers are clamping down on staff who spend hours on social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Bebo.

Unions say that disputes over the sites are growing at a phenomenal rate and have demanded clearer guidelines for their use. Studies have shown that up to £130m a day in productivity is lost because of the sites, with Facebook's British members spending an average of 143 minutes a month logged in (...)
