Jesus Love U 2

anus, corrupt, ecology, metal, nihilism

"Many U2 fans must have been outraged when they spotted the recent work of a Dutch sculptor named Frans Smeets. The sculpture depicts the rock icon Bono, dressed in a Nike shirt, holding out his hands in a way that reminds us of Jesus summoning his apostles. By his feet lies an African baby, staring at him with a creepy look on his face, as if he wanted to say, "why don't you save me?" Hilariously, Bono doesn't seem to be very bothered by the child, on the contrary, his face expression and body language seem to reply, "what do you want from Bono, a piece of record?"

Whether you actually go about to claim this sculpture as "art" or not, one cannot deny the striking message that Smeets is communicating with his work. Today it has become immensely popular for international icons to be engaged in politics, religion and charity. Pop princess Madonna adopts an African child and shows public interest for the Jewish faith, Al Gore becomes the new "Green saviour" to tackle global warming, Bill Gates directs Microsoft to spread Windows to the Third World, and Bono, as we all know, is renown for his fight against poverty and injustices..."

Has anyone else heard this yet? It's "Clocks," but covered/remixed by Buena Vista Social Club. (YouTube link -- sound only with static picture.)

I heard it on The Globe this morning, and my brain nearly broke. Now I need the mp3.

Abandoned Toys has a new beautiful album of new age music that is absolutely gorgeous. You should really consider picking it up, if you like new age music.

We missed you.


Heck, I don't mind putting up with emo crap every once in a while to have a radio station I can play in the car.
