African Scream Contest

i'm a one handed typist for the next few weeks, so briefly: there has been an explosion of releases of african music; one of the leading lights in this movement is Analog Africa, who focus on the bewilderingly awesome and diverse music of Benin. I got "African Scream Contest" for Christmas, and it's all fine,fine funk.

Here's a taste: http://cornwarning.com/xfer/GaboBrownAndOrchestraPolyRythmo-ItsAVanity.mp3

You'll have to google if you want more info, hyperlinks are too much for me to type right now.

Health Fail

I apparently have type 2 diabetes. for those who are up on these things, i had a blood sugar of 400 last week. Oh well, it makes sense that i would get a monster infection in my elbow that took surgery to fix.

Either that or i have a bunch of fucking quacks for doctors. their behavior the last several weeks has not inspired me with much confidence. it seems like the quality of your healthcare is inversely proportional to the number of doctors inolved.
