Free music... I must be dreaming!

But do yourself the favor and check out Jamedo... there is some great stuff there like this one from Epic Soul Factory. After watching Daniel Lopez's videos I went to their page at Jamelo and was amazed at their repertoire... well worth listening to. Click on the start button!
A host of genres is available and I must say I have only sampled a few but not one was bad so far...
Give it a try.

That's not cricket David!

The kick...
and the apology laced with "but's"...  
The rules are simple in this case, shame on all the boo'ers as well. Displays of impatience and frustration like this have no place in sport of any kind. Bad sportsmanship should never be condoned at all.

Falkland furore


The recent rhetoric from the Argentine president clearly ignores one fact... the Islanders are not Argentinians by a long chalk. 
Having visited Argentina I can also say that they are singularly obsessed with the Islands for a whole host of reasons but what we must never take out of the picture is the fact that the sea bed surrounding the Islands has a valuable commodity... OIL.
When Oil comes into the picture many countries loose their common sense and this is what is happening to the Argentine political Junta.
The Falklands will never become the Malvinas without an inordinate amount of violence I fear.
I love Argentina and the people but would be the first to say... Leave the Falklands alone! You may well remember these words from the last time... we all know how that ended.

Surrender To Someday - Electric Armageddon

Surrender To Someday - Electric Armageddon

This is from local Bloemfontein group Surrender To Someday... and I hope they become international soon. The songs are all amazing, just buy the album Crown Paper Kings!
I have listened to the whole CD after getting hold of one for the princely sum of R50.
Most of the tracks have an EPIC instrumental intro, this is something that is so often overlooked in modern music, after 4 notes the vocals usually begin. STS have managed to spotlight their musical abilities as well as the vocals by using this technique to brilliant effect! Well done guys!
