i recently saw a twin peaks commentary, strangely mirroring the parts about touching shamans; just look at all the shaman touching.
the gladiator one impressed me the most, you have to watch it.

French Polynesian pro-independence politician Moetai Brotherson is warning it's only a matter of time before the French nuclear weapons test site at Moruroa collapses.

Mr Brotherson made the claim while addressing the UN decolonisation committee in New York which heard about France's refusal to engage in a UN-supervised process.

He had asked France to remove remaining radioactive substances from its former weapons test site at Moruroa, where tests were carried out between 1966 and 1996.

Mr Brotherson, who is also a member of the French National Assembly, said cracks suggested it was only a question of time before the atoll collapsed.

He had asked the French government to remove the remnants of nuclear material from the site for proper disposal.

But Mr Brotherson said he did not expect a positive answer from Paris.

"Explain to me then why the most important French investment in French Polynesia for the past ten years has been the Telsite project, totalling more than US$100 million just to monitor the cracks on Moruroa," he told the committee.

"This is 100 times more money than the total compensation granted to Polynesian victims so far."

Moruroa has remained a no-go zone despite the end of testing 23 years ago.

Do we really believe in the current state of knowledge when we can’t engineer containers that will last more than 100 years that we can abandon the UKs nuclear waste???!!! This article tries to slip the premise past you that the only thing we can do with nuclear waste is abandon it! We don’t agree!

Loving the latest Know Your Meme epsidose starring Weird Al Yankovic on the Cultural Phenom of Auto-Tune and T-Pain

This has to be the best Know Your Meme episode yet! great rhythm with the editing. informative historical contexualization.  masterful weaving in of popular culture. and freaking WEIRD AL is in it! COME ON! this is tooooo cool. I grew up on Weird Al!

This is American culture at its best - only Weird Al could exist in America - everything about this episode speaks to the unique experience of growing up with pop culture in the US.

Appreciating this episode requires one to understand the technological feats of audio engineering, iphone apps mania, misogynistic off-tune popularity of *some* rap artists, hip-hop’s intimate yet under-appreciate relationship with technological innovations, Weird Al as as cultural commentator long before South Park and John Stewart, internet memes as a cultural phenomenon, kanye’s popular tantrums, and satiric political commentary with popular media.

Essentially, this episode won’t make sense unless you know where to culturally place/appreciate all these aspects - yes there’s even a place for a rapper like T-Pain who can rap/sing (badly) about his love for the strippas and strippas and more strippas.  Oh and T-Pain twittered this Know Your Meme homage to his cultural legacy.

If I EVER forget why I love America - which often happens sometimes when I’ve traveling/living in other countries and fetishizing their health care system or affordable non-organic hormone pumped food or political participation levels or slower non-materialistic lifestyles - REMIND me to watch this episode of Know Your Meme.

it also looks like Sony is releasing a Weird Al compilation album. awesomeness.

As Jamie Dubs just said, WE BEAT THE INTERNETZ, GUYS!  So, T-Pain just tweeted our KYM episode.  :)

NWA Schweiz

Schweizer Atomaufsicht spielt Blinde Kuh:
Weckruf an unsere deutschen Nachbarn

Die Schweizer Atomlobby eilt von Erfolg zu

Erfolg: Lockerung der Strahlenschutz-Grenzwerte
bei Erdbeben, Beseitigung strenger Abschaltkriterien,
Reduktion der Atommüll-Gebühren
und steigende Gewinnmargen dank Revision des
europäischen Emissionshandels. Nun strebt die
Atomlobby einen „Langzeitbetrieb“ bis 2050
an und denkt bereits wieder über neue Atomkraftwerke
nach. Möglich wurde dies alles dank
fahrlässigen und gesetzeswidrigen Entscheidens
der Schweizer Atomaufsicht. Zum Schutz der
eigenen Bevölkerung sollten die deutschen
Nachbarn die Vorgänge beobachten und aktiv
intervenieren.
