Dr. Beetroot Manto Tshabalala-Msimang Is Dead

brought to you by justin b Email

An echelon official in the South African political bureaucracy and an HIV/AIDS denier, Tshabalala-Msimang passed away Wednesday when her liver failed. She was 69.

De wiki:

A case that attracted much public attention was Nozipho Bhengu, daughter of an African National Congress legislator, who rejected anti-retroviral treatments for AIDS in favor of Tshabalala-Msimang's garlic and lemon diet. The minister declined to attend her funeral, and her stand-in was booed off the podium.

See, they called her Dr. Beetroot because she recommended a healthy diet and a tincture of local extracts as a treatment for HIV. It seemed to function all right as a palliative (Ms. Bhengu showed all the signs of health before dying, as the Economist will tell you), but didn't do much to actually treat the disease. There's sort of a lot of misunderstanding about HI-5 on the Mother Continent.

Case & point: current SA president and arraigned rapist Jacob Zuma testified that he took a shower, following the alleged incident, to limit his risk of HIV. He usually uses condoms, he said, but did not have one at the time. It is rumored among joke-ass suckers that Zuma's AIDS shower was actually intended to prevent that thing you get when your balls stick to yr legs or yr jimmy gets all glued to the nut pouch in yr boxer-briefs, which is honestly no laughing matter. Maybe let's get the Bill & Mel Gates Charity Foundry in touch with these folks. Free condoms in spaza shops!

Here's Manto's obit piece in Times LIVE, wherein many of her critics are reported as forgiving her. Right nice of them, really.



and um on a lighter note do you guys remember when people like this used to happen

GOOD OLE AMERICAN PARTTTY LIFFFE

brought to you by rand Email

Margot Padilla is a renaissance woman and should probaly be president of "non-shitty" america. She has a brilliant celebrity zine Totally Mag (totallymag.tk) that you may have seen on your LA friend's stack of graphic novels when you weren't allowed to sleep on the huge couch because new dick roommate doesn't know how to chill. She has a website that takes it back to the pure world of personal homepages / category buttons / x-files (prettycoolland.com), and she makes bleak / rager rave / bitcore /paegent anthems as I.E. (www.myspace.com/inlaempyre) featuring lyrics like "You ain't shit,You ain't shit,You ain't shit, Bitch *Click*You're off my myspace, go back to friendster bitch". It makes me smile.

You know I'm basically going to heart anyone that treats the internet like the monkey bars and life like the geodesic dome that they don't have in playgrounds anymore. I was going to create the Q&A multiline Google Wave Interview matrix but thats not really in the spirit of MVP. Heres our very special e-mail exchange:

> Who is the best person to look at computer things with?
> Angie Olsen or Kyle H. Mabson

> Tell me about the confluence of events that brought to life IE:

> why does everyone in IE claim LA? Quem Quaeritis broke up, Prayer partner broke up, love making music.





> How important is Totally Mag and why?

> It's significant in the zine world i think it was one of the first to stray away from political rants, and riot girl diy stuff that is is    good in its own way i guess.


> 2012 predictions:

> all major webhosts and e-business' battle it out over who is the ruler of the internet. ie will have toured the east coast. brangelina divorce.

> Tell me a bong story.
> the first time i knocked over a bong my father yelled out "man, margot, you spilt the bong." i had to clean it up and it smelled so raunchy i learned that under any circumstance never spill the bong it is almost impossible to get out that bong water smell and its nasty. i think since the age of 13 i only spilled the bong water like 4x damn thats alot.

> What else should I be asking you questions about?
> i'm always experimenting with and making music. i plan on touring the east coast by the end of next year. my favorite color is red. my favorite fast food is del taco, my favorite band is raunchous brothers,
<for now. i'm here for friends and networking.

Celebrate Fred Hampton

brought to you by justin b Email

Born in Chicago, killed in Chicago.


The father of the notion of a rainbow coalition was assassinated twoscore years ago today, sold out by a mark called William O'Neal for thirty pieces of ten-dollar money. J. Edgar "Mary" Hoover put out the hit and CPD donated pressure to the trigger. Mr. Hampton was 21 years old. Vivat vox porcus. COINTELPRO-a-go-go.

Please be 18+ before using this image.

In honor and solemn remembrance we offer a film portrait of Chairman Fred's personal electricity, free to download below for all to see and learn. The Murder of Fred Hampton is a 1971 documentary loaded full with absolutely classic oratory. It is a must-see. Bit-torrenters can also grab it from Seedpeer, if you prefer. Watch and become educated about the greatest man ever to stand trial as an ice cream thief.

WARP'S HUDSON MOHAWKE GETS HIS ESSENTIAL MIX ON

brought to you by Spy Email

BBC Radio1's Essential Mix program gives groundbreaking DJ/producers the chance to roll up their sleeves, stretch their legs, and show their fans a different side to them. The side that influences them and the side that fills up their hard drives.

With past essential mixers like Flying Lotus, Portishead, and Tiesto, essential mix is a milestone for all DJs.

Its Hud Mo's turn and he knocked it out of the fucking park.

Crunked up bass, 80's sex jams, HipHop gems, a glitchd remix of africa, and personal flair everywhere.

It's called "essential" for a reason.

  • COMBAT PAPER PROJECT

    Through papermaking workshops veterans use their uniforms worn in combat to create cathartic works of art. The uniforms are cut up, beat and formed into sheets of paper. Veterans use the transformative process of papermaking to reclaim their uniform as art and begin to embrace their experiences as a soldier in war.

    The goal is to utilize art as a means to help veterans reconcile their personal experiences as well as broaden the traditional narrative surrounding service, honor and the military culture.

Democracy means we're all responsible for these conditions, and for rectifying them.

  • Sociographology

    There is an interesting piece in the NYTimes Magazine about a particular scientific study of social networks, modeled using gobs of handwritten data from research begun in 1948 by the National Heart Institute which "followed more than 15,000 Framingham (Massachusetts) residents and their descendants, bringing them in to a doctor’s office every four years, on average, for a comprehensive physical."

    The report of the study is that we are affected by people we may not even know, through 2nd and 3rd string connections. To wit: if a friend of a friend is happy, your happiness is heightened to some degree. If a friend of theirs gains weight, you incur a residual likelihood of same.

  • The Teachings of Bill Cosby

    Circa 1972, an album of groovy, wholesome drug demotion from the father you never had.

    To a soundtrack of Peanuts-tinged 70's funk, Big Papa Cosby jives with kids about amphetamines, cocaine, depressants, barbiturates, opiates, alcohol, tobacco, hallucinogens, and gives an impression of each through analog effect.

    The kids have some lines, some scripted, some not. In track 2, they teach Cosby drug colloquialisms they seem to have learned from their parents, and tell him how to smoke "Proud Mary".

    Cosby has some musical solos to boot.
