  1. A petition was launched in September, as a European Citizens' Initiative, for banning the use of cages in animal farming and in factories. I think there is none who hasn't watched a video of cruelty against animals and hasn't wished the prohibition of this practice. Psy people (inside EU) sign the petition and inform others as well.

    MFG - Aye

    This has been posted again. Not bad, sounds very nice. But where did that good thought have gone?..

    Psy/Goa Trance and Politics

    ..and "Recreation", a nice term i forgot to mention before. Mr Mustafa to be precise. Is there a new Mr Mustafa? There's another user entitled the same, someone 'MrAnarchy', so i decided to change it a bit to avoid any confusion. I follow psynews respectfully, since 2006.

    Psy/Goa Trance and Politics

    Well, i think there are fitter music genres like Rock styles, Metal styles, Industrial, Neoclassical etc.. to express such issues, and even more, propaganda. But again, it is certainly different to talk about a way of life or a cultural activity. This music's essence would be abused for sure by political colors and agendas, and degraded. The previous decade, it had been twice i listened to well-known tracks in political promotion. One was Lepton Head by Deedrah in a youth's party, and the other a Jaia sample in a commercial. It felt such a misappropriation. "hedonism"? a controversial term, indeed. I would recommend the term "experience" (or for the old era or the pure spirits, the value "mysticism").

    Let's talk about "Lies"

    Maybe, it could be pointed out as thoughtfulness, prudence, soberness etc ... Gunas Upadana It is a well-pointed remark that there is a dilemma, a priority difficulty between Truth of facts and Truth of obligation or altruism. Surrounding conditions, an appraisal and a weighing of what is valuable. Mostly, fear is behind lie. But sometimes, pettiness or worthlessness.

    The Taiji Twelve - a lethal trap for dolphins

    Well, it seems that there are two meanings of the term "tradition". The first is about spiritual heritage and it's expressions or ethos and cultivation, and the second describes practices or habits. But as far as i know, such activity can't have roots in neither zen buddhism or shinto spirituality. I doubt it.. and again some reactions i noticed were bound to "feeding rights" argumentation, something like that, and something like "we will not do what the foreigners or the americans tell us to do, it's an ethnic tradition" for something that it looks like to have started very few centuries ago for commercial reasons.
  9. Mr Drezz made a very good point here. No objections. A question could be though, wasn't any cd label got reached or interested for a single album or double (depending the tracks) release? There are few more labels out there now, and since Nervasystem is an old legend & a quality standard, such a release could be better than many other getting out. I still haven't listened to your new material, but judging by your previous stuff and Time Travel, just wondering..
  10. Few years ago, i watched The Cove documentary about the dolphin hunting in a cove of Taiji, a place in Japan. The footage taken by the activists is quite gruesome and shows the entrapment and the massacre of large groups of dolphins, these wounded beings' desperate efforts to escape. Also, the film uncovers the whole industry build upon the slaughter of these helpless beings, dolphins and whales too, two species with intelligence striving to survive in a modern hostile environment the late centuries. This (awards winning) film was shocking and made a good impact to the world for a long time, but also informed the unaware japanese people. Eventhough, there is a part in the japanese society and the media, as well as the japanese government, which is tolerant of this practise or even supportive, and new footages always show that the massacre hasn't stop. Also a similar practise takes place in the Faroe Islands, grindadrap. Around 800 pilot whales and some dolphins are killed annually.

    Deep House

    Based on this, first i would recommend Motor City Drum Ensemble. Subtle and true/authentic/uncompromising, like Anton Zap, Iron Curtis, Tony Lionni, Satore, Sven Weisemann, East End Dubs, Lucianno Villarreal, Matthias Vogt, Maya Jane Coles.. Mentioning Plastic City you cover it all (in a summarised way). Great course. Deep4Life, Mojuba, Underground Quality, 4 Lux, lot's of labels from the past until nowadays. electrobuzz is a good promotional place to listen to plenty of new and some classic stuff.
