http://chirotzerozine.blogspot.com
the blog is more exusively concerned than this one with presenting essays, reviews (inc. "bad reviews") , Visual Poetry, Sound Poetry, Event Scores, Manifestos, Manifotofestos, rantin' & raving, rock'roll, music all sorts--by myself and others--if you are interested in being a contributor, please feel free to contact me at david.chirot@gmail.com
as with this blog, the arts are investigated as a part of rather than apart from the historical, economic, political actualities of yesterday, today, & tomorrow
as with al my blogs--
contributions in any language are welcome

Free Leonard Peltier

Free Leonard Peltier
The government under pretext of security and progress, liberated us from our land, resources, culture, dignity and future. They violated every treaty they ever made with us. I use the word “liberated” loosely and sarcastically, in the same vein that I view the use of the words “collateral damage” when they kill innocent men, women and children. They describe people defending their homelands as terrorists, savages and hostiles . . . My words reach out to the non-Indian: Look now before it is too late—see what is being done to others in your name and see what destruction you sanction when you say nothing. --Leonard Peltier, Annual Message January 2004 (Leonard Peltier is now serving 31st year as an internationally recognized Political Prisoner of the United States Government)

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'



Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'


The current 'Miss Universe' Dayana Mendoza (formerly Miss Venezuela) and 'Miss America' Crystal Stewart visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay on March 20th, the New York Times reports. Here's Mendoza's account of the visit from her pageant blog last Friday. She says the trip "was a loooot of fun!"

This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience...All the guys from the Army were amazing with us. We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting. We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.


The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)

I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

Dear RadiOM Listener,

Luc Ferrari, Lou Harrison, John Cage, Henry Cowell, Germaine
Tailleferre, George Antheil, Henry Brant, Leroy Jenkins, Otto
Luening, Ernst Bacon, Virgil Thomson, Benjamin Lees, Astor Piazzolla,
Martin Bartlett, Percy Grainger, John Vincent, Aaron Copland, Vivian
Fine, Jack Briece, Morton Feldman, Peggy Glanville-Hicks, Mauricio
Kagel, GyÖrgy Ligeti, Conlon Nancarrow, Harry Partch, Roger
Sessions, Nicolas Slonimsky, Andrew Imbrie, Frank Zappa, and Ivan
Wyschnegradsky.

Wouldn't you love to have the chance to speak with some of these
distinguished composers personally and probe their thoughts on music?
Well, that chance has come and gone since none of these composers are
living among us. But at radiOM.org, their voices live on in personal
interviews you can hear at the touch of your keyboard. Here you can
eavesdrop on unique conversations and concerts recorded between 1949
and 1995 at KPFA Radio in Berkeley.

However . . . we still have hundreds of programs yet to digitize and
catalogue, and your support can help us get the job done.
Furthermore, your gifts ensure that we can keep this service FREE by
helping us bear the cost of transferring programs (from reel-to-reel
tape, Betamax videotape, cassettes, and DATs) and storing, uploading
and cataloguing them.

Our goal is to keep this service FREE TO ALL, and to do so we have
relied on foundation and government sources to pay all costs. But the
work is outpacing our funding, so now for the first time we ask for
your individual understanding and support.

Sure, you can listen free, but this service does have costs we at
Other Minds must pay.

Please contribute now by making your gift via credit card online at:

monthly from 104 countries including Slovenia, Mexico, the
Philippines, Canada, Brazil, the Netherlands, Turkey, Russia,
Germany, Italy, Israel, Norway, Armenia and Australia. During that
short period of time we've added 108 new programs. We've also begun
to add visual material to many of our program listings, including
photos, letters, printed programs and other documents that will
enrich your listening experience.
