Matthew Dowd: I have said this many times over the last few years: the goal of any news organization should not be “balance”. The goal should be truth. Balance should not be the pursuit. Truth must be the North Star.
Molto interessanti sono gli #earlytake dei brani registrati in studio e rarità del terzo disco. Chi è amante del #prog o fan (come me) degli #Yes, non se lo deve far sfuggire, questa è l'edizione *definitiva* di uno degli album più belli della storia della musica #prog (e non solo).

I'll be thinking about the ending of the 4000 word sentence at the close of Ulysses as I vote tomorrow. So many issues and "yes I said yes and I will Yes."
Joyce had other things on his mind, but it works for tomorrow's election too.
Any of you should probably come up with a very #good explanation of just.
This is weird.

Gotta admit how insufferable I am: desert island discs include Topographic Oceans and Satyagraha (I just listened to both (partially) tonight and thought about their desert-island-ness). I always assume there's a 5-choice-limit to these arbitrary lists so still trying to think of the other three...

Yes - The Yes Album
The album where Yes became "Yes”, the missing piece being Steve Howe on guitar. And unlike a lot of "prog" albums, these songs are not crammed with too many ideas - just a lot of great playing.
What makes it work, too, is…Tony Kaye. I know Wakeman has his fans, but Kaye is a member of the group who isn't *constantly* drawing attention to himself. He solos when he should, and plays with, and not against, the group otherwise.
Here's my last attempt at making sense of the weekend:
We lied to ourselves a year ago when over 80% surveyed said we'd support a Voice To Parliament.
When it came to putting pen to paper, we ended up being too easily convinced we don't, because we may lose our land/money/jobs/advantage/privilege.
Australia needed this National Referendum to hold a mirror up and show us how much of an institutionally racist a society we actually are.
Note: I'm not calling us racist. I'm just saying our society has been swayed by fears born out of racism, and promoted by those with either a racist agenda, or a push for power.
Now we can face reality and make a change if we want.
I've always said it was good Pauline Hanson came on the scene.
She also held up a mirror to society.
Some who thought they were not racist saw that they shared some attitudes with her.
That gave them an opportunity to make a decision to change.
The referendum result now gives our society an opportunity to make a decision to change.

Although I was slightly cheered up by a neighbour who I met at the beach last night. He was in a mobility scooter with his Jack Russell - he is 101 years old.
"Did you vote?" he asked me. I confirmed that I had.
"I voted YES," he grinned, and he shook my hand. Then he went on to tell tell me about how he had fought against the Nazis as a partisan in Yugoslavia. Spent years in a prison camp. And now here he was, enjoying a beautiful sunset at Umina Beach with his dog.
Marcia Langton in blistering form.
"'If affirmed, this referendum will seize our first best chance and last best hope for a lasting settlement.'
The rejection of this offer of a settlement is the end of the notion of reconciliation.
What could follow this heartless, baseless rejection?
We are left with only the wit and determination of Indigenous people themselves to find another way to live alongside the descendants of strangers who hold us in contempt.
Those who stood by us throughout the referendum campaign will be invited to join us, but they too will face a bleak future. Australia will not be the land of the “fair go”.
The dark heart of the White Australia policy will be no whisper but a new national slogan for those who rejected our offer."
Twenty years ago this morning, I got off a long flight from Los Angeles, was met at the arrivals terminal by my soul-sister, Shilo McClean, who promptly took me to Surry Hills for breakfast - and to buy a mobile. "If you don't have a mobile in Australia," she intoned with great seriousness, "You don't exist."
I became a citizen almost 13 years ago - as soon as I could. Australia has been very good to me. I've never looked back.
Thank you, Australia. #Yes
Queensland, NSW and Victorian councils for civil liberties have released a paper on voting #yes on Saturday.
They raise some very interesting points, most of which have not been touched by the main stream media elites, most of whom would struggle to understand the position taken by these organisations.
'It's a splinter in the mind,
a whisper in the heart
A feeling something's missing,
some crucial little part
It's business that's unfinished,
a reckoning that's due
If not now, then when?
If not us, then who?
Too many falling far behind,
shut out of the deal
If you called and no-one heard you, imagine how you'd feel
This land was never given,
it was taken and then sold
But its ancient songs and stories
are a gift greater than gold'
The Australian jurisdiction with the highest proportion of Indigenous people is the Northern Territory.
Coincidentally, the NT doesn't count toward the "majority of states" part of the double majority required for a #referendum to pass.
To me, this does not seem fair, and seems like another example of White Australia imposing its will on First Nations people.
This is just one of the many reasons that I'll be voting #yes on Saturday. #Voice does not affect me. Voice will probably not affect me as a white middle aged male. Hell, it may well be completely ineffective. But I don't want to be spending the next 25+ years listening to conservatives yelling "Australians don't want indigenous representation" and "Australians already dealt with that issue" at every opportunity like they currently do with the republic movement.
Auch auf die Gefahr hin euch damit zu nerven, ich liebe diesen verdammten Song. #YES
1/2 The last time I got totally shit-faced was when Kevin Rudd's Labor won the 2007 election. The totality of my politically aware life had been in the shadow of John Howard's interminable and cruelly conservative reign. Kevin '07 promised a new dawn so I got very (vewy) drunk. But my hopes were immediately dashed. Before he'd even finished his acceptance speech I'd written him off. Australia needed to re-find its heart but I couldn't see this emotionless robotic man showing the way. I leaped (lurched) onto my bike and cruised (wobbled) my way through Canberra's urban bushland to another election party, muttering all the way "Where is it? Where is the love? There is no love!"
I was right. Before his term was out, Rudd had lost his prime ministership because he was a heartless egomaniac who didn't follow through on his righteous moral proclamations. There was one exception though: the Apology to the Stolen Generations. What a humbling and vulnerable moment of contrition, of historic importance. Does Australia regret that act of love?
A great constitutional lawyer once said "It's the vibe."Though glib, there's some truth to that: the constitution is where our principles are laid out, not where the persnickitty detail is specified. That is left to legislation which Parliament can wrangle and refine over the years to come. So what vibe do you want our constitution to have? This foundational document that underlies our society? When I ask "Where is the love?", I want to find some of it in our constitution, because I want to live in a community based on love, generosity and acceptance.
An Australian constitutional referendum on #Indigenous #recognition is on track to be defeated amid strong opposition from older voters and those living outside cities #yes #voteyes #voicereferendum #newscorpse #MurdochRoyalCommission #Thisisnotjournalism
Artist and Central Land Council delegate, Rene Kulitja, is voting #Yes for the Voice to Parliament. 🇦🇺
"We want to go forward together with open hearts for the future."
She wants policymakers and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to work hand-in-hand, to create a better future for Indigenous Australians.

Out for my run this morning and spoke to a lovely woman in Victoria Park who was helping to set up because the Sydney/Redfern #YES walk ends up there this afternoon.
The fifth studio album by Yes was released #OnThisDay in 1972. Side one is their magnum opus: an 18 minute long gem of #symphonicprog, with many different segments and twists and turns but comes around in the end. Chris Squire's bass is brilliant and so is Bill Brugord's drumming. The latter half of And You And I is amazing and Siberian Khatru absolutely rocks. Great album!
Apparently the audio quality is supposed to be horrible on this live album, but it seems to be much better on the CD version than the vinyl version I have. What is there to say about this album? Good band, great live, and the best material from their best period. Great listen!
Please #boost the shit out of this. We all need to have this under our belts before we even contemplate #voting #no. I realise that many old people and #conservatives will argue, but this hasn't been touched by #NewsCorpse.
My absolute favourite album by Yes, Gates Of Delirium is a brilliant track that doesn't overstay its welcome despite its 23 minute length. I love the "battle sequence" in the middle: it's epic. Maybe I like it so much because the album is very dense and up-tempo, I tend to lose attention if there's a lot of slow segments but this album keeps you in for the ride all the way through.

This ‘Union’ is all very very one way isn’t it?

To commemorate the fact that I'll see #JonAnderson live this weekend. Not my favourite album by Yes, overshadowed by Tales and Relayer for me personally. The cover is horrid, the bad kind of minimalism, but the inside of the gatefold is quite nice. The music is iconic though and the title track is brilliant, I really like the bass!
