Memo from Mick Jagger

Mick Jagger has recorded and released a new “single” (whatever that means exactly) with Dave Grohl, who you all know and love from Foo Fighters and that band with Kurt Cobain. The song, Eazy Sleazy, looks forward to the end of the Covid-19 pandemic quarantine.

Consider it a courtesy call: Mick just wants to check in to see if we have managed okay, and to let us know that hope will come soon.

Every Friday Miaaw publishes a new podcast, and every Friday at 12:34 UTC I check to make sure it has spread across the web.

Today, just as I noticed the time, Sasa from Pixelache messaged me to tell me it had not appeared. It only showed as a box claiming not to have found the file.

Thirty minutes later…

A Primer on Refugees

I did not write this essay. David Rovics wrote it. I subscribe to his newsletter, which is always informative and sometimes amusing, and this arrived this morning. For those who don’t know, David Rovics is “an American indie singer/songwriter”.

The essay does exactly what the title suggests. It provides a clear and detailed historical background that explains how and why the current situation arose.
