I am loving the music of Jordie Lane. Such a special storyteller on humble guitar.
Los Angeles will love this guy. I see Joride on stage at The Wiltern one day. Fun. (more…)
“This is beneficial both to economic entities and citizens [for the USSR, Georgia and Baltic nations]. What’s the point in having a national currency and losing money during transfers?” said Armenian President Tigran Sargsyan.
“In the summer of this year, Russian Prime Minister Medvedev called for the creation of a single currency for Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. He repeated a similar idea at the recent CIS forum in Yalta – Alexander Razuvayev, Ph.D. and Director Analytical Department of Alpari said in an interview with Pravda.Ru. – In principle, it may seem that the idea looks a little strange against the background of the crisis in the euro zone and the probability that not only Greece, but perhaps Spain may leave the euro zone, but there is a grain of common sense here, because money decides a lot in today’s world. Only a single currency may actually unite the single economic space.”
The Ukraine has aligned towards European integration and not Russian integration, although it has yet to decide what Union to choose. Their decision hinges on eurozone outcomes still developing. The Russian market is seen as advantageous for Ukraine more so than the Ukrainian was for Russia.
Economists say that in today’s world, only 200-250-million-strong markets can be self-sufficient. Kazakhstan and Russia, plus Belarus is somewhat less. Thus, the system can work only if Ukraine is integrated. One shouldn’t forget that Russia can use energy supply to put pressure on Ukraine.
1 January 2015 is when the Eurasian currency is set to kick in. Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan are moving in the same track along the same lines too. A new Eurasian Central Bank is thought to be set up to go with the currency.
Russia has world’s third largest international reserves, more than 500 billion dollars, and Russia’s GDP this year is about 2 trillion. The emerging Eurasian currency nations combined still won’t rival that of the United States, China, or the European Union.

The Kardashian sisters of the USA are Armenian-American, if you’re wondering about what Armenians are like. They are very family and community oriented.

–Music: BB King or Berclair, Mississippi & U2‘s retro blues rock guitar hits… kinda can’t be beat. Music anthems with lotsa grunt. Grammy winning music artists of Ireland and the USA. King was born in 1925. Wow.

Right now the Maori bro neighbor is fixing his sports car as the sun is shining bright in the hood. With his bro cool shades on he has his stereo going the full tit while the kids from the hood race around the car, playing tag.
It’s a nice family scene for the eyes. Plenty of laughter. A primo music show.
Bro’s music tastes are cool old school sounds: Paul Simon‘s Call Me Al, The Netherworld Dancing Toys‘ For Today, Aretha Frankilin‘s Respect, Renee Geyer‘s Say I Love You, The Bee Gees‘ Staying Alive and a very cool live version of Eddie Floyd‘s Knock on Wood. The version is way cool. A grunty band sings it. Don’t know who.
Here’s Justin King‘s one.

Today I’m thinking about “asian cigarettes.”
Not an entirely healthy thought, yet a lot of unhealtheir things have happened and been introduced into NZ in the last ten years, than “asian cigarettes” song lyrics.
Here’s classic Dave Dobbyn and his music peers to reflect our Kiwi sentiments of cool rock n’ roll and pop culture from years past with music from Th’ Dudes. The band were school buds who formed at Sacred Heart College as a covers band. (more…)
Don’t read if at work. “God just kinda knows.”
I think 20 is the new 20. 40 has just gotten racyer. 40 is 40.
We shouldn’t take away young people’s turn. :)

In a cool story of rugby picks, All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has opted to ensure his team his triple kicking power when the world champion rugby side tours Argentina.
Richard Knowler writes, “Barrett, who can also play fullback, will form the backbone of Hansen’s insurance policy even though [Daniel] Carter, who has not played since the Bledisloe Cup win over Australia at Eden Park on August 25,” will tour too.
That’s the latest in ensuring the standard of New Zealand’s golden boot kickers in NZ. Touring’s gotta help there. A good selection.
All Blacks squad to tour Argentina and South Africa:
All Blacks’ squad to travel to Argentina and South Africa:
Forwards: Hookers: Andrew Hore and Keven Mealamu. Props: Charlie Faumuina, Ben Franks, Owen Franks and Tony Woodcock. Locks: Brodie Retallick, Luke Romano and Samuel Whitelock. Loose forwards: Sam Cane, Richie McCaw (captain), Liam Messam, Kieran Read, Adam Thomson and Victor Vito. (more…)
"Like a whisper..."
Peace flows away from deception into light, as naturally as glaciers of a mountain stream into a hidden reserved lake.
This is New Zealand’s story of wisdom and calm.
