I Read Some Marx (And I Liked It)

July 6, 2010

Lyrics:
I thought I just wanted to pass;
Good grades were all I cared for.
My college made me take the class
More stuff for me to ignore!
But then I found out that
His theories weren’t so bad:
Labor and class combat,
What a very clever man!

CHORUS
I read some Marx, and I liked it;
The friend of the proletariat.
I read some Marx, just to try it;
Hope Adam Smith don’t mind it!
It felt so wrong,
It felt so right;
Men of the working class, unite!
I read some Marx, and I liked it;
I liked it!

There is a spectre hanging o’er
The face of Europe!
‘Tis communism, and it’s more
Than just a social hiccup.
A time will come soon when
The masses rise as one
To carve out their place in
The brand new poetry to come!

CHORUS

Marx is the man, he’s working for you;
The bourgeoisie, they just ain’t your crew.
Alienation of labor is bad,
Commodification is not a good fad.
The capitalists are greedy you see;
A shorter workday, now that’s what we need!
I’m reading some Marx, and I’m liking it;
Rise up now, proletariat!

Kyoto Now!

February 2, 2009

I knew enough about Bad Religion to like their music. What I didn’t knew about is that they are putting politics in their lyrics.

The Kyoto Protocol is a protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC or FCCC), an international environmental treaty produced at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), informally known as the Earth Summit, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 3–14 June 1992. The treaty is intended to achieve “stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.”[1] The Kyoto Protocol establishes legally binding commitments for the reduction of four greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulphur hexafluoride), and two groups of gases (hydrofluorocarbons and perfluorocarbons) produced by “Annex I[wikipedia]

Pushed Again

December 19, 2008

Some years ago I listened to Pushed Again from Die Toten Hosen quite a lot. In the last week the song catched up with me and I searched the song on youtube. I didnt even know that the video is that good.

Don’t Download This Song

Weird Al Yankovic – Don’t Download This Song
Once in a while maybe you will feel the urge
To break international copyright law
By downloading MP3s from file-sharing sites
Like Morpheus or Grokster or Limewire or KaZaA

Is it impossible playing a British-style pop music in Italy? Here is the challenge that Amelie want to take up.
At the beginning of 2006, the Trabant EP is the Amelie’s 1st auto-produced work. It gets good reviews from specialised websites and magazines. Meanwhile, the band plays several gigs and festivals, and opens some summer tour concerts of Baustelle.
In November 2006, Amelie record 5 songs which give birth to Be Low, the band’s 2nd EP. The artistic production of this very goodly reviewed work is led by Andrea Franchi, collaborator and drummer with well-known Italian songwriter Paolo Benvegnù.

How I tried (and failed at) legally buying digital music

May 6, 2008

This is a story of a sucky customer experience. As customers and experts alike will tell you, users like to rock, not to suck. […]

[…] My conclusion? I tried to pay you money for music. I tried hard, and annoyingly long. As long as this kind of effort doesn’t allow for a legal, DRM-free download, the music industry has no reason whatsoever to complain about losing sales. As bloggers and press people learn early on: Make your stuff available. […]
