Colossal Gospel - ‘Bloody Boat’

A duo that manage to sound like an entire chorus choir, Colossal Gospel are Stephen Weibelt and Chris Johnson, just a couple of southern folkies -  Leeds, Alabama to be exact.

As they harmonise on ‘Bloody Boat’, their chorals rattle and echo against a roll of steely guitar, swelling with reverberation. “Though you do not speak, I know you are with me”, they quiver on the chilling bonfire song - a real raw, Gothic Americana tune.

The track is off their debut album called Circles - out now on Autumn Tone.

A person is helped through a bus window as Egyptian refugees who fled Libya to Tunisia leave the Echoucha refugee camp by bus on March 3, 2011 in Euchoucha. Between 8,000 and 10,000 people crossed into Tunisia on Wednesday, Adrian Edwards, spokesman from the office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees told AFP, noting that most of those new arrivals are Bangladeshis. The UNHCR had launched an joint urgent appeal with the International Organization for Migration late Tuesday for a mass evacuation at the Tunisia-Libya border.The world in images: March 3, 2011

Greatest Generation: Screen Junkies' Top 10 WWII Movies

greatestgeneration:

ScreenJunkies.com has released their Top 10 list of World War II movies. In principle I agree with the list if not the exact order. I thought The Thin Red Line, A Bridge Too Far, and The Guns of Navarone should have been in the mix, but this is a truly classic set of films.

INTERVIEWER

Do you think the novel can do certain things that journalism can’t?

 GARCÍA MÁRQUEZ

Nothing. I don’t think there is any difference. The sources are the same, the material is the same, the resources and the language are the same. The Journal of the Plague Year by Daniel Defoe is a great novel and Hiroshima is a great work of journalism.

All my life I’ve looked at words as though I were seeing them for the first time.
