In an effort to curb the spread of Spanish Flu in 1918, some states in the US quarantined citizens; others made the wearing of face masks mandatory, at the same time as shutting down “all places of amusement”. According to a law passed in San Francisco in October of that year, on the day that state-wide infections passed 50,000, anyone seen not wearing a gauze face covering was subject to fines that ranged from $5 to $100 and the possibility of 10 days’ imprisonment.

BANTU PANTI ASUHAN JOS AGAR 68 ANAK TAK TERLANTAR

Pasca 1,5 tahun digebuk pagebluk, panti asuhan yang selama ini saya turut bina, Jodie O’Shea House (JOS), makin susah bertahan, sebentar lagi gulung tikar jika tiada tindak penyelamatan.

MAI MABASA BALI: KAYIKA MILENIAL

Mai Mabasa Bali (let’s speak Balinese) is a program that I run at the moment & the goal is to attract young people’s interest to embrace their roots, their mother tongue: Balinese language. The dream is that Balinese language will be actively used again as a means of daily communication, as the lingua franca. Or at least the Balinese language is no longer considered as an obsolete object, uncool, being left to rot.
We’ll release some new and exciting Balinese songs by Navicula, The Hydrant Bali, James Manja, Alien Child, and the Balinese music veteran: Widi Widiana.

PLAYLIST: WAVES OF PIXIESATION

No band has captured such unknowable glimpses of imagined worlds, all in three minute splinters of Lynchian Surrealism, Old Testament brutalism and glassy-eyed ruminations on extraterrestrial life. No one else has forced a mass of voices to howl along to lyrics about slicing up eyeballs, or the environmentalist dread of millions of pounds of sludge enveloping the oceans. No one has even come close. “There was a guy…”

ANUGERAH MUSIK BALI 2021: KETIGA, BUGAR, DAN BERJAYA

Dan memang, walau dalam situasi pagebluk yang serba sulit, kendala moral pula material nan kolosal, pagelaran di tahun ketiga ini nyatanya bisa terselenggara baik, relatif sukses besar.

KEITH RICHARDS FOUGHT THE LAW, THE LAW WON

“Would you agree in the ordinary course of events you would expect a young woman to be embarrassed if she had nothing on but a rug in the presence of eight men two of whom were hangers-on and the third a Moroccan servant?” asked the prosecutor, Malcolm Morris, to Keith Richards at the court in Chichester, West Sussex, England, this week, in 1967.
