electric honey.

Wow. Ich hab immer noch Gänsehaut, so wunderschön finde ich das Video „Songwrite After Dark“ von Shaz a.k.a. Electric Honey, einer ganz lieben Freundin, das sie mir gerade per SMS präsentierte.

Tolles Songwriting. Und sie sieht nicht nur im Video so nett aus. :-)

Schwesterherzens finnisches Freundesherz hat sein Album fertig, „PAPER BEATS ROCK“. Und jetzt auch das erste Video zu „Never have I ever“. Das poste ich hier nicht aus Gefälligkeit, sondern aus Gefallen. :-)

Never Have I Ever

(Nein, er singt da nicht, er hat aber Musik und Text geschrieben, soweit ich weiß. Er ist der unter der Tüte. Eine Schande, dass er unter der Tüte steckt.)

was gerichte so sagen.

uiuiui, ich lese grad das transkript der befragung eines experten bei der verhandlung von jessie misskelley, einem der west memphis three.

sowas hier ist doch echt mal merkwürdig, da lässt das gericht einen sozialpsychologen mit dem spezialgebiet erzwungene geständnisse als sachverständigen zu und dann darf der seine meinung nicht sagen:

„THE COURT: It’s just like the Johnson case on the rape of that child. I’m going to allow him to testify right up to the point of where he’s giving an opinion or inference that it was involuntary — that it was coerced.“

„THE COURT: Yes, I’ll let you ask those questions. …. But the difference is you’re asking him whether or not this was involuntary and allow him to say, In my opinion it was involuntary well, what does involuntary mean? Does that mean the State –or the officers did something impermissible, illegal — there are a number of things in the psychological area and the sociological area that the police could do that are perfectly permissible. Psychological techniques are not necessarily improper or wrong. From a psychologist‘ s standpoint, he might say, Well, by using these subtle techniques they caused him to — to confess. That doesn’t mean that they’re involuntary. It means that they’re good techniques. So it means a lot of different things, and I’m not—“

free the wm3.

it was pure coincidence, ok, maybe not pure coincidence, that led me to the page www.wm3.org. on myspace i learned – first about pearl jam’s lead singer eddie vedder embarking on a solo tour along the west coast – and then about the fate of three obviously innocently imprisoned men who were convicted of the murder of three boys back in 1993 and have been incarcarated for 15 years now, one of them in death row.

i only had a look of some chapters of that webpage until now but i get the impression that „justice“ can make and does make horrible mistakes. (ok, i guessed that before but i hadn’t encountered any specific case yet.)

i told my virtual but very real friend ingrid who luckily happens to live in santa barbara about the show in her town and it was her who made me have a closer look at the cause for this special kind of charity tour.

this is just an extract of the synopsis:

„… since they had destroyed or lost most of the evidence that might have been collected, their only option was hearsay.
Finally, the boy’s mother [a local woman who was in trouble for writing bad checks agreed to assist the police in their efforts to investigate Damien] had yet another idea. She urged a mentally handicapped 17-year-old named Jessie Misskelley to go to the police with another eyewitness account of having seen Echols kill the children. Jessie was with the police for twelve hours, yet only a small fragment of this lengthy day of questioning was recorded.“

„During Jessie’s trial, Dr. Richard Ofshe, a Pulitzer Prize winning expert on false confessions and police coercion testified that the brief recording was a „classic example“ of police coercion. He pointed out how the officers heard Jessie state that the murders had taken place in the morning – but since they knew that the victims had been in school all day, they „suggested“ to Jessie that it „must“ have been later when he was in the woods. Jessie obligingly agreed. Oddly, the testimony of this expert witness for Jessie’s defense was not heard in its entirety by the jury.“

nada surf ist so nett: lucky vorab online. komplett.

die nada surfs sind unwahrscheinlich nette menschen. so nett, dass man skeptisch wird.
und jetzt haben sie auch noch ihre ganze cd lucky noch vor der veröffentlichung bei myspace eingestellt.
bestimmt nicht ohne hintergedanken, aber selbst die sind sicher noch nett. :-)
das ist doch mal ne nette gelegenheit für menschen, die keine ausgesprochenen fans sind, sich das mal anzuhören.

wer das nicht möchte – ich mag auch manchmal ungern was anhören, weil ich „soll“ – der kann hier mal gucken. „i like what you say“ ist nämlich eines meiner liebsten lieder des neuen albums. und obwohl ich solche animierten videos meistens blöd finde, ist das hier doch ganz charmant. gesetzt den fall, die make-you-happy-girls sind keine weiblichen fans. wie auch immer.

nada surf – i like what you say
