 Jean Henri Gaston Giraud (French:  8 May 1938 – 10 March 2012) was a French artist, cartoonist and writer who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinees tradition. Giraud garnered worldwide acclaim predominantly under the pseudonym M?bius and to a lesser extent Gir, which he used for the Blueberry series and his paintings. Esteemed by Federico Fellini, Stan Lee and Hayao Miyazaki among others, he has been described as the most influential bandes dessinees artist after Herge.

His most famous works include the series Blueberry, created with writer Jean-Michel Charlier, featuring one of the first anti-heroes in Western comics. As M?bius he created a wide range of science fiction and fantasy comics in a highly imaginative, surreal, almost abstract style.

These works include Arzach and the Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius. He also collaborated with avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky for an unproduced adaptation of Dune and the comic book series The Incal.

M?bius also contributed storyboards and concept designs to numerous science fiction and fantasy films, such as Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element and The Abyss.

In 2004, Moebius and Jodorowsky sued Luc Besson for using The Incal as inspiration for Fifth Element, a lawsuit which they lost. Blueberry was adapted for the screen in 2004 by French director Jan Kounen.

V.A : Black And Proud : The Soul Of The Black Panther Era Vol. 1

The Black Power movement was a political movement to achieve a form of Black Power and the many philosophies it contains.

The movement saw various forms of activism some violent and some peaceful, all hoping to achieve black empowerment. The Black Power movement also represented socialist movements, all with the general motivation of improving the standing of black people in society.

Originated in the aftershock of the Civil Rights movement, some doubted the philosophy of the movement begging for more radical action, taking influences from Malcolm X.

The cornerstone of the movement was the Black Panther Party, a Black Power organization dedicated to socialism and the use of violence to achieve it. The Black Power movement developed in the criticisms of the Civil Rights movement in the early 1960s, and over time and into the 1970s, the movement grew and became more violent.

After years of violence, many left the movement and the police began arresting violent actors in the movement.
The Black Power movement also spilled out into the Caribbean creating the Black Power Revolution.

Motivated by principles of community control, Black Power activists founded scores of institutions and services, including black-owned bookstores, food cooperatives, farms, media, printing presses, schools, clinics, and ambulance services.

Sons of Slum : Right On Lyrics
Hey baby
That's alright people
I know that's alright
Oh, when we love each other
I know that's alright
Oh feel it, feel it
Oh everybody feel it
God know that's alright, yes
Some of us were born
With money to spend
Some of us were born
For races to win
Some of us are aware
That it's good for us to care
Some of us feel the icy wind
Of poverty blowing in the air
For those of us who simply like to socialize
For those of us who tend the sick
Ah, and heed the people's cries

Let me say to you
Right on
Right on, feel it
Yea, oh, oh, oh Lord, Lord, people
And I say, right on
Honey right on
For those of us who live
Where peace is craved
For those of us who live, uh-huh
Where hatred is enslaved, alright
For those of us who live a life
Yea, surrounded by good fortune and wealth
Talk about it
Those of us who live a life
Hey, hey, hey enjoying ourselves
For those of us who got drowned
In the sea of happiness
For the soul that takes pride in his God
And himself and everything else
That's all it is
We need love
That's all it is
Oh, oh
Love, love
Love's the thing
Love, love, love, love
Sweet love, love
Wonderful love
Ah, true love, love
Love for your brother
Love, for God
Pure love
Love can conquer hate every time

Give out some love and you'll find
Peace sublime
And my darling, one more thing
If you let me, I will take you
To live where love is King
Ah, ah baby, baby
Ah, ah, ah, baby
People, people
People who love and care
That's alright


"You're The Man"

Talkin', talkin' to the people
Tryin' to get them to go your way
Tellin' lies, not to worry
That we won't be led astray
So blind, unsignified
Your opponents always lying
Think about the mistakes you make
I believe America's at stake
You know, busin', busin' is the issue
If you have a plan wager
If you have a plan
If you've got a master plan
Got to vote for you
Hey hey, got to vote for you
You're the man

We don't wanna hear no more lies
About how you planned a compromise
We want our dollar value increased
Employment to rise
The nation's taxation
Is causin' all, all this inflation
Don't give us no V sign
Turn around and rob the people blind
Economics is the issue
Do you have a plan wager?
'Cause if you've got a master plan
Got to vote for you
You're the man

[8 times, over scat singing:]
Don't you understand?
There's misery in the land
[One version fades out during this; read further for a longer version]

People marching on Washington
Better hear what they have to say
'Cause the tables just might turn against you, brother
Set around Election Day
Politics and hypocrites
Is turning us all into lunatics
Can you take the guns from our sons?
Right all the wrongs this administration has done?
Peace and freedom is the issue
Do you have a plan wager?
If you've got a plan
If you've got a master plan
Got to vote for you
Hey hey, got to vote for you
'Cause you're the man

[Repeat and fade:]
Got to vote for you

Ομορφα είναι εδώ στο Φατσοβιβλίο , τι ωραία που περνάμε . Να αυτοφακελλονώμαστε , να λέμε που ήμσταν χθες και να μας παρακολουθεί ο κάθε καριόλης . Πάρα πολύ ωραία ! Εμένα προσωπικά στα αρχίδια μου .. Ετσι κι αλλιώς έχουν ένα τεράστιο φάκελλο με το όνομά μου , ξέρουν τι καπνό φουμάρω , χρόνια τώρα παρακολουθούν τα πολιτικά χωσίματα που γράφω , οπότε χέστηκα .
Εσείς όμως τα νέα παιδιά γιατί πέφτετε μέσα στην παγίδα τους ? Φύγετε όσο σας παίρνει , γαμήστε αυτό το φακέλλωμα και κάντε κάτι γιά την πάρτη σας . Ανοίξτε ένα βιβλίο , διαβάστε κάτι και σταματήστε να τον παίζετε μπροστά απο τον υπολογιστή . Δε λέω , καλή η μαλακία στα Τσοντοσάιτς , αλλά φτάνει πιά . Ερωτευθείτε και κάντε έρωτα με το ταίρι σας . Μην κάνετε τα ίδια λάθη που κάναμε εμείς . Θα τα πληρώσετε στο μέλλον και το μέλλον είναι περισσότερο σκληρό όταν κάποιος ζει στην άγνοια . Μην κάνετε το ίδιο λάθος με εμάς που παραδώσαμε τις ζωές μας σε έναν υπολογιστή , διότι δεν ήμασταν τόσο έξυπνοι όσο εσείς . Πάρτε τη ζωή στα χέρια σας γιατί η ζωή σας ανήκει , όπως και το μέλλον το δικό σας και του πλανήτη . Σε λίγο εμείς που κάποτε είχαμε τα σκήπτρα θα φύγουμε , θα μείνετε εσείς και τι θα παραδώσετε ? Ενα ίδιο Τίποτα ?

The Sound : From The Lions Mouth 1981

From the Lions Mouth  is the second studio album by English post-punk band The Sound, released in November 1981 on record label Korova. Following the release of their previous album Jeopardy, keyboardist Belinda "Bi" Marshall left the group and was replaced by Colvin "Max" Mayers. For their new album, The Sound worked with producer Hugh Jones, as well as co-producing the album themselves. The album's sound was more polished than previous efforts.

This album shows Adrian Borland, the singer/guitarist and primary songwriter, as a troubled man with hope.
The result is an album that, while dark, is also subtly uplifting. He explores the darker side of humanity while simultaneously enciting us to use our arms and our brains to find our own sense of purpose, and warns us of the new dark age impending if we don't. This album is lyrically and musically ahead of its time, and easily one of the best albums of the post-punk era. Get this lost classic while you still can.

NME compared the album's bleak nature to Joy Division's Closer. Sounds qualified the album as "gothic". Despite The Sound being posited as a gloomy band, AllMusic wrote, "snake-charming opener 'Winning' is From the Lions Mouth was well received by critics upon its release. Mike Nicholls of Record Mirror wrote,

Adrian Kelvin Borland (6 December 1957 – 26 April 1999) was an English singer, songwriter, guitarist and record producer, best known as the lead singer of post-punk band The Sound (1979–87). Following a substantial solo career spanning five albums, he succumbed to the symptoms of schizoaffective disorder and committed suicide in April 1999.

Although it is unclear as to when Borland was diagnosed with his condition, from 1985 onward the symptoms of his depression became more and more apparent.His problems would manifest themselves in many of the songs on The Sound's final album, Thunder Up, as well as in the schizophrenic layout of the piece ; while the initial tracks deal with confronting issues (for example "Acceleration Group", "Barria Alta"), the second half proceeds at an entirely different tangent, becoming either tortuous ("Shot Up And Shut Down"), frenetic ("I Give You Pain") or mournful ("You've Got A Way"). The touring for Thunder Up culminated in disaster for the band when Borland left halfway through a set at Zoetermeer, Netherlands. It would be the last Sound gig

"The Sound seem set to take up where Joy Division left off and become the saviors of the adolescent grim brigade". Melody Maker's Steve Sutherland commented on the album's lighter, more commercial tone than that of Jeopardy, calling it "Jeopardy-as-palatable-product".
Like a dash of cold water in the faces of all the bands that were wallowing and withering away at the weeping well  The Sound were not mopes. They had their problems with life, but rather than just vent or escape from them, they confront them and ask questions and attempt to sort it all out.

The night of the 25th 1999 Borland slipped away to Wimbledon Station . In the early hours of the 26th horrified commuters watched as Borland committed suicide by throwing himself under a train . He was 41 years of age , and was interred at Morden Cemetery , London .

What holds your hope together,
Make sure it's strong enough
When you reach the end of your tether
It's because it wasn't strong enough,
I was going to drown,
Then I started swimming
I was going down,
Then I started winning
Winning - winning

When you're on the bottom
Crawl back to the top
Something pulls you up,
and a voice you can't stop,
I was going to drown,
Then I started swimming,
I was going down
Then I started winning
Winning - winning.

In the darkest times
Darkest fears are heard
And from the safest places
Come the bravest words
Some make a quiet life
To keep this
Scared old world at bay
The dogs are howling on the street outside
So they close the curtains, hope they go away
And it's pressure from all sides
Coming down around our ears
Stuck in this room without a door
Scratched away at the walls for years
All we've got to show is the dust on the floor
And here it comes, a new dark age

I catch your eyes
Before they fall to the ground
We're running out of time, breath and steam
We're running down
They're burning witches
Up on punishment hill
Dying proof in the power of autority
To exact it's will
And we've broken our fingers
Broken our faith
Broken our hearts so many times
They can't be broken anymore
Scratched away at the walls for years
All we've got to show is the dust on the floor
And here it comes, a new dark age
Here it comes.... A New dark age
