The Front Man

THE OBAMA DECEPTION is an interesting documentary that focuses in on the new Prez and the fact that he is a puppet for multi-national corporations that want to create a new world order. The film explores the various snakes within Washington that are selling snake oil to the American public. It also highlights the other side of the spectrum and interviews activists who are really trying to incur positive change without a fancy ad campaign by OBEY to rally support..

The time has come to stop relying on politicians. If you want to ignite change start by voting with your pocketbook.

The Situationist International Documentary

The famed Situationist International was a group of revolutionaries founded in 1957 and dissolved in 1972. The groups members were heavily influenced by Marxism and the artistic avant-gardes ideals of 20th century Europe. The modus operandi advocated by the founders was experiences of life being alternative to those being admitted by a Capitalistic Order, for the fulfillment of human desires and the pursuing of a superior passional quality. To attain these means they suggested and experimented with the construction of situations, mainly the setting up of environments favorable for the fulfillment of such desires. The group fought against the main obstacle stopping the fulfillment of such superior passional living, advanced capitalism. One of the main theorists in the group, Guy Debord, argued in 1967 that spectacular features like mass media and advertising have a central role in the advanced capitalist society, which is to show a fake reality in order to mask the capitalist degradation of human life. The Situationist International movement has influenced many aspencts of culture and politics in the USA and Europe. Many modern day Leftists, Communists, Anarchists are influenced by SI concepts. One of the SI concepts called Psychogeography is loosley translated to "a whole toy box full of playful, inventive strategies for exploring cities...just about anything that takes pedestrians off their predictable paths and jolts them into a new awareness of the urban landscape." This idea makes me wonder if skateboarding and other urban sports were directly influenced by SI concepts. The SI ideals is even said to have influenced the punk rock phenomenon of the 1970s..Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord is one of the more notable books that delves into the principles of the movement. It has gained widespread recognition and is worth reading...The group also advocated spraying graffiti, drawing comics and making movies to get their messages across to the masses...

C.I.A (Criminals In Action) found Guilty of TORTURE

An Eyetalian judge Oscar Magi has convicted 23 US secret agents over the 2003 abduction and 4 year torture of an Egyptian imam named Abu Omar. This conviction and trial is the 1st in the world to center on the agencies controversial program called extraordinary rendition. This rendition gives the CIA the right to arrest suspected "terrorists" and transfer them to countries known to practise torture. Of the 23 Americans convicted, 22 were sentenced to 5 years in prison while the agency's former station chief in Milan, Robert Seldon Lady, was convicted to 8 years. All of the Americans, however, were tried in absentia. Read more on this article at TIME..Finally, those secret SOBs are getting some much needed Karma...

Real Readers Know!

Why read when you can just watch a show where somebody is reading?

Reading is Fundamental!

Given that a vast majority of the banditti blogski readers are borderline illiterate, the upper management at BB feel it is high time to start a new series of posts pertaining to the old block of wood aka the BOOK. Now before we get started, long periods of reading can cause harm and proper precautions should be taken to avoid injury such as eye strain, blindness, and of course eye worms. BB recommends consulting a certified physician before using one of your major senses. In todays book post we would like to spotlight the author Abbie Hoffman who brought us the highly acclaimed novel "Steal This Book." In this revolutionary piece of literature, Mr. Hoffman eloquently presents his ideas on social reform that inspired many to challenge the status quo. Mr. Hoffman wrote this novel for the modern day Renaissance man who feels that you don't have to take it anymore. Many regard this novel as a survival guide for living in Amerika.

Here is an excerpt from the introduction:  Steal This Book is, in a way, a manual of survival in the prison that is Amerika. It preaches jailbreak. It shows you where exactly how to place the dynamite that will destroy the walls. The first section-SURVIVE!-lays out a potential action program for our new Nation. The chapter headings spell out the demands for a free society. A community where the technology produces goods and services for whoever needs them, come who may. It calls on the Robin Hoods of Santa Barbara Forest to steal from the robber barons who own the castles of capitalism. It implies that the reader already is "ideologically set," in that he understands corporate feudalism as the only robbery worthy of being called "crime," for it is committed against the people as a whole. Whether the ways it describes to rip-off shit are legal or illegal is irrelevant. The dictionary of law is written by the bosses of order. Our moral dictionary says no heisting from each other. To steal from a brother or sister is evil. To not steal from the institutions that are the pillars of the Pig Empire is equally immoral.

Freebee of the Week - Hightone Wavedigger

Anyone who digs dub will definitely appreciate this gem. The group Hightone hails from Lyon, France where they are considered to be the Euro leaders in the dub movement. The group draws upon many influences but seems to stick to 3 main areas: 70's dub, electronic music, and ethnic music. The combo of heavy electro bass and Jamaican riddims makes for a perfect mix...Check their site as well to listen to streaming media...Is that a Sarah Silverman sample on the 1st track? Also, hit replay on Overtone b/c it is a banger with many layers of sound/samples...
