Burning cars , LRAD's , Red sand

Had some good sessions for the new Pac Man inspired Ep tracks last wk ,
in particular the new 4th Industrial Rave-ish song I put together in a few hours.
The slo bus ride up was still somehow enjoyable , only two of us on by the end.
Whenever we pass through Bearsville i think of Todd Rundgren and his studio he had there years ago ...
Skipping through the little , old towns to pick up a single passenger.
Part empty General Stores , Fire wood & Budweiser ads

Then back to town and out the next morning for an excellent day hike on Friday upstate in Harriman State Park.
All warm sun , big sky jet trails , deep forest of yellow leaves.

And in the happening world ...
Burning cars in Paris. Over the wkend they reached Marais where we spent parts of two days when we were there in Oct.
900 cars burned in one night - that's hard work / alot of anger.
The sad story of the two young men of color being chased by Police and then electrocuted by hiding in a transformer .
It seems the authorities do not know how to handle it and so it's grown to Toulouse , Lille and some cars got burned outside Brussels train station.
I expect more radical elements there have a great chance to get involved,
the opening has been created.

Then last week the odd story of pirates 100 miles off Somalia trying to hijack/ripoff
the huge Carnival Cruise passenger ship Seaborn Spirit ...
Their two boats then got a blast from the ship's LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device)
which directed a tight sound blast at them .
Was just rding this today after watching Blackhawk Down on Cable last night .

Another news item that struck me was - as part of the weather report in Japan yesterday there was a sand and dust warning for Western Japan .
Where's the stuff from ? blowing in from China ...
