We feel movies
and music - the arts in general - not only give an accurate
representation of the times we live in, but often shape them as
well. The seeds of rebellion historically grow from art.
Accordingly, this section is devoted to our comments, critiques,
and suggestions concerning various forms of media; along with a
rather unique concept - the Burned CD of the Week. We hope you
enjoy these artists’ work as much as we do…

Vol. VII: There's a Funk Stain on My Bed
Few people know the true story of Che Guevara. Check out this
film produced directly from Dr. Ernesto Guevara's fateful
motorcycle trip through the Latin American countryside.
"A One Man Revolution"
Tom Morello is most commonly known for his work with Rage
Against the Machine and equally for his out-spoken political
activism. Since Rage all-but-dissolved and Audioslave disbanded,
Morrello started an acoustic solo project, the Nightwatchman.
"I Believe in a Better Way"
Ben Harper is one of, if not, the most talented artists of our
generation, and a strong theoretical voice for thousands who
believe there is in fact a better way. I am one of those devout
follows of Mr. Harper’s ideals and I relish any opportunity to
share his passionate teachings with all who will listen.
Better known in America as City of God - is an absolute must-see
film. Full disclosure it is sub-titled, unless you speak
Portuguese, but well worth whatever extra effort it may take you
to transcribe the thing. There are drugs, women, incendiary
dialogue, a Hobbsian struggle, epic wars, oh, and a moral to the
story - what else could you want?
Our era’s truly great blues act. The Black Keys pull no punches
when it comes to their relentless Rock N Roll attack on the
soul. Starting with The Big Come Up, The Keys have been putting
out quality material pretty much annually since 2002 and they
show no signs of slowing down.
"The Layer Cake"
“You're born, you take shit. You get out in the world, you take
more shit. You climb a little higher, you take less shit. Till
one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've
forgotten what shit even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake
