Here’s the latest podcast from UFOverdriver – a sound collage about Wikileak’s release of over 250,000 confidential and secret U.S. State Department diplomatic cables to major news organizations around the world…
Rule Number Two Will Be Told To You In Reverse – The Wikileaks Mix (3:48)
(Yes, UFOverdriver occasionally does podcasts – you can subscribe for FREE through iTunes)
In case you’re not familiar with this story about “Cablegate” from Wikileaks, here’s a bit of info:
WikiLeaks’ Cablegate, the latest dump of confidential documents by WikiLeaks, has the website prominently in the news again this week. (Scroll down for live updates.)
WikiLeaks released 250,000 secret State Department documents on Sunday, including cables related to Iran and its nuclear program, leading to numerous reactions.
HuffPost’s Sam Stein reports that the Obama administration is not ruling out taking legal action against WikiLeaks after the online site’s latest leak. In July, WikiLeaks released more than 90,000 Afghan war logs. Iraq war logs were released last month. WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange says the next dump will target a U.S. megabank.

About This Mix
Some of the material used in this sound collage (including the title) comes from an audio-cassette invitation to a party created by my friends Brian Maul, Kirk Jones (the voice saying “Rule number two will be told to you in reverse”) and Philip May back in the early 1990’s. You can hear the complete invitation here (it’s about 30 minutes long and quite amazing…) http://onehumanbeing.com/central/2010/11/27/souvenirs-from-the-late-20th-century/
The drum loops came from the Acid Loops Universal Groove Elements, but I altered them somewhat… in the background are some strange loops from something I recorded in June of 1990, and there’s also some organ playing in there that I recorded last night for this collage.
Enjoy the mix!

Listen To This Sound Collage
How Long? Not Long!
As someone who’s watched the long drama of the drug war for over 27 years, I can’t help but feel the time is getting near… the end of this fiasco is in sight.
The last push to end this unjust, immoral and racist prohibition of marijuana is upon us, and I hear the voice of freedom saying “How Long? Not Long!” I hope I’m not too optimistic in saying, “This is the year we legalize it…”
This sound collage is dedicated to three medical marijuana activists – Charles “Chuck” Witt, Jack Herer and Josh Howard (the heart and soul of our medical marijuana collective – AAC, Apothecary’s Assistant’s Collective in Long Beach, California)

About the song “Good Morning John”
My friend Pete included this song (Good Morning John by Kris Kristofferson) on a music playlist a couple of months ago, and it really got under my skin – in a good way – and during this last month it evolved into this sound collage – Thanks Pete!
Kris Kristofferson originally wrote this song about Johnny Cash’s struggles with addiction for a sobriety party in the 1970s. He explained to Billboard magazine: “Everyone was supposed to say something inspirational, so I wrote a song. I tried to record this once before with Willie Nelson and my band. When I sang the chorus, they echoed me when I would sing ‘Good morning John.’ When I got to the line that said ‘I love you John,’ Willie said ‘He loves you John’ and we all cracked up laughing. We never finished it, so I finished it myself.”
Enjoy, reflect and pass it on!
