Free Assange NOW...

I came across this during a search but when I clicked on the link YouTube had removed it. So I put the title into a search and I found a Russian site with it embedded in.

Pamela Anderson is a lovely natured lady who is a vegan too.

Again I note that all the media outlets (including Fox News) screamed when the White House temporarily suspended Jim Acosta’s press pass for incessant heckling and disruption.

None defend Assange.

Back in 2016 there was a possibility that Trump might not have won the election if Wikileaks had not publicized the corruption of Hillary and the Democrat leadership. Because of this, Trump often praised Wikileaks, especially toward the end of his campaign....

“I love WikiLeaks.” 10 Oct 2016 Wilkes-Barre, PA.

"This WikiLeaks stuff is unbelievable. It tells you the inner heart, you gotta read it." 12 Oct 2016 Ocala, FL

"It's been amazing what's coming out on WikiLeaks." 13 Oct 2016 Cincinnati, OH

"Another one came in today. This WikiLeaks is like a treasure trove." 31 Oct 2016 Warren, MI

"Getting off the plane, they were just announcing new WikiLeaks, and I wanted to stay there, but I didn't want to keep you waiting. Boy, I love reading those WikiLeaks." 4 Nov 2016 Wilmington, OH

Trump’s fans cheered each time he said this.

Now Trump’s fans condemn Assange, because they are as spineless as Trump. They are all Frankos.


That’s a cool song, by the way.

In think the Julian Assange version is better than the original.

Konrad said...

Yes. The original is good, but I like this version better.

John Farnham (Australian)
"You're the Voice" (1986)


A lot of Australians sing in a lower voice, not trying to show off. I like the style.



On that second song, the guitar solo at 2:17 is haunting and surrealistic.

Konrad said...

Speaking of music, the only way we can reach people with messages of peace, or socialism, or whatever is through art, especially music. If a song becomes very popular, then people are moved by its lyrics. People remember the lyrics.

Logic doesn’t work.

Kaivey said...

I never liked the song much until I heard the Julian Assange version, but I think they got someone else to do the singing. I like the Assange version so much that I wish there was a full version. I think this song is the main reason I posted it here.

Kaivey said...

DANE TAYLOR - 'LET'S FLOAT' was beautiful, Konrad. I'm going to try the other one now.

Kaivey said...

Hot Summer Nights as good too. I can't really match it, but you could try this. Magnetic Fields tend to be intense psychedelia,though.

I'm going to have to check out some more Dane Taylor, though.

Konrad said...

Dane Taylor was with a group called Shining Bird.

The Shining Bird song below ("Shade of the Sea") is very calming

The Shining Bird song below ("Skitzing") used to have a great video on YouTube. It showed a compilation of people flipping out at their workplaces. Actual footage of people being frothing-at-the-mouth crackers from stress, from anger, from anxiety, frustration, etc. "Skitzing" means freaking out.

Konrad said...

I had never heard that song before, nor heard of the group. I love it. I shall listen to more of their songs.

“The Flowers She Sent and the Flowers She Said She Sent”

From the 1994 Album “Holiday” by the The Magnetic Fields (American)

Konrad said...

I really like it a lot. Listened to it four times.

Konrad said...

Addicting song.

A YouTube reader said “The Flowers She Sent" was used in the 2003 movie “Pieces of Abril.”

I didn’t see it, but the song is not on the soundtrack.

However the movie “Pieces of Abril” did use six other songs by the Magnetic Fields

Konrad said...


Pieces of April

Kaivey said...

Oh wow, Konrad, not many people like what I like. That's incredible!

I sent that Dane Taylor song to my brother and he rung me up within five minutes saying he loved it. He hasn't rung me for months.

You should try 69 Love Songs by the Magnetic Fields which is more acoustic. Also, Steven Merritt was behind the 6ths, but that music went crazy. He also wrote the lyrics for the Future Bible Heroes, an electronic music band. He sings on their album and so does Claudia Johnson who is a Magnetic Fields member.

Check out all of Holiday because I think it's good.

Strange Powers:

Future Bible Heroes: Hopeless -

The Magnetic Fields - The Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side:

Just listen to the words in this -

The Magnetic Fields - Absolutely Cuckoo -

Movies In My Head - The 6ths :

Konrad said...

I check them out after I've rested a bit. It's 9:02 am where you are, and 2:02 am here.

I must have listened to that song ten times or more.

Kaivey said...

Crikey! Have a nice sleep, Konrad.

Konrad said...


I listened to all the examples you cited, and I like them all. Now that I'm starting to get an idea of your tastes, below is another song that’s sung in a low and calm key. Kind of hypnotic.

“Fixing my brain” (2003) by Brad Sucks (born Brad Turcotte, Ottawa Canada)


Also, based on the examples you shared with me, I recommend The Lightning Seeds, a group from from Liverpool U.K. I think you might like their style.

Some examples…

The Lightning Seeds: “Pure”

The Lightning Seeds: “The Price”

The Lightning Seeds: “Joy”

The Lightning Seeds: “Love Explosion”

The Lightning Seeds: "Bound in a nutshell"



About ten years ago the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) mounted an international campaign to crush people who were making music available on web sites so that other people could download the music for free.

LimeWire, Kazaa: there were several of these web sites.

The RIAA moved to crush all this by hitting people with fines of $3,000 to $12,000 for each song that had been made available.

In 2009 the RIAA hit one woman, an ordinary housewife named Jamie Thomas, with a $2 million fine for “infringing” (i.e. publicly sharing) 24 songs.

The recording industry lost no revenue from online file-sharing. Many artists actually liked it, since file sharing was the only way their music could ever get heard. So why the massive RIAA legal campaign against file sharing?

The reason is that recording industry bigwigs want sole power to decide what you get to hear. The bigwigs get a piece of the profits from every song, and hence they limit what the public gets exposed to. They decide which artists become popular, and which artists are checkmated before their careers begin.

This is why, when we listened to the radio in the days before the Internet, we had to hear the same songs over and over and OVER until we were sick of them.

With online file sharing, people were hearing all kinds of artists they otherwise would never have heard.

Since then, YouTube has helped somewhat. For example, I had never heard of The Magnetic Fields until you mentioned them to me.

Today the popular stations mainly play rap music, which is not music at all.
