8:33am: Sweet Mother Logic – “Cloud Chamber”
- From the album: Natural History
All instrumental music, but as writer Cassie Doubleday says on the music blog “I Heart Music” (http://www.iheartmusic.net/serendipity/), Sweet Mother Logic’s music isn’t light, fluffy unicorns that wander around with that creepy child-molesting leprechaun from Lucky Charms. They’re pretty Tim Burton-style awesome. It’s like your brain is biking (both pedals – aka lobes – are moving).”
Montreal Life Stories, from the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling
- This week’s episode: “The Roma: From Then to Now,” in an interview with Gerhard Baumgartner.

The Action Items
- The Greek Bail-out and Referendum
- No matter who’s in government, the same choice will have to be made. Turn your backs on the EU or cancel the referendum and face the certain ire of the people
- Another interesting facet to the story involves the huge levels of tax evasion endemic in Greek society
- And in the end…no referendum??
- A political revolt of our own??
- Ontario and Quebec both say they’re unwilling to pay for the crime bill.
- Even the editors of the Globe agree, and they’ve endorsed Harper 3 times!: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/editorials/tory-crime-bill-is-too-tough-on-the-provinces/article2223102/
- But what’s the subtext here? Could it have to do with a general fear from the provinces that our supposedly anti-federalist Conservative government might just be trying to centralize power in Ottawa? The Harper gov’t has mused that it might not need the provinces to approve senate reform even though it represents a fundamental change to the charter.
