Another busy week on (void) as people continued following US politics.
Isabelle Whitman forwarded a comment piece apparently from a Canadian
commentator; Ashley Pomeroy and others pointed out that the Europeans had
built decent planes, and Chris Devers pointed out the author had been dead
for seventeen years. John Melesky posted a URL to its original home, in, um,
1973. There followed come Concorde stuff.

Meanwhile, Robin Houston posted Noam Chomsky's response, and Alex Mclean
cheered us up with a picture of a kitten.

Ashley complained a bit about the way the archives worked, and Patrik
Nordebo followed up. Daynal joked, but no-one suggested removing the
cancerous pus that is Pipermail and replacing it with, say, MHonArc. Not
that I care at all. Oh no.

Daynal couldn't sleep. Ian Malpass, on the other hand, was rediscovering the
joy of duvets, and Chris Heathcote noted that a warm bed makes a nice home.
Victoria McDonnell noted that it was warm enough anyway in California, and
there followed a (small) pissing contest over hot places.

Alex Robinson and Daynal continued a debate over war grave photos, that
started last Thursday or so, continued over the weekend, pulled in more
people (notably Chris Devers) over the middle of the week, and finally died
down. It was full of very long messages debating fine points of how to
doctor images and provenance, and Ashley and others satirised it a couple of
times.

Todd Larason posted the piece by Tamim Ansary that did the rounds in a lot
of places this week, prompting Stuart Wyatt to wonder if there were
reporting restrictions in place; Chris Devers though that if so, it was on
the reporters side; Todd agreed that there wasn't likely to be official
muzzling. Harl posted some interesting quotes. At the same time, Simon
Batistoni wondered about the role of Pakistan, and Simon Kinahan amongst
others joined in.

Chris Heathcote listened to Godspeed You Black Emporer; many other people
(including Ian Malpass) liked their song titles, music or (commonly) both,
and Ashley noted the monologue at the beginning of
'F# A# OO' is somewhat topical. Plus it inspired Gontar Peas.

Ashley noted that Michael Jackson and other pop stars of the moment were
going to record a song for victims of the WTC attacks. Generally, though,
(void) went more for the diversion of the GSYBE thread into the realms of US
indie, notably Juliana Hatfield (thanks to Celia and Mike Jarvis):

Still on music, Simon Batistoni posted a link to a list of 'banned' songs
(which I just found on Plastic). Rick found it all very annoying, although
both he and Steve Mynott remembered RATM being played on Radio 1 uncensored.
Giles Turnbull watched the Old Grey Whistle Test, and Ashley added more
reaction.

http://slab.org/mailman/private/void/Week-of-Mon-20010917/046130.html

Taking the geek fixation route, Patrik Nordebo wondered about how many nukes
the US really had, and whether they could vapourise mountains. Steve Mynott
disagreed, and Ashley took the surrealist option. The fourth URL isn't
related, but it is a good Ashley post. (The rest of the thread talked about
real fruit and real, if stupidly named, cellular pager things.)

Alex Robinson posted a long, interesting and detailed post on The
Pornography of Terror. Ashley noted the Guardian was selling itself on the
literary figures commenting on the attack, and Chris Devers analysed the US
TV response. Patrik Nordebo picked up on the first link in Alex's post,
wondering if the Scientologists were really cashing in.

In other post-Sep 11 stuff, (void) people pretty much agreed that we didn't
like Ann Coulter and Jerry Falwell, and that the idea that everyone should
light a candle at a specified time so that it would show up on a satellite
photo wouldn't work.

Links of the week: the war rug (via Rick), tank manuals (via Ashley) and
silver linings (via Al Snell)
