by ROD AMIS

NEW ORLEANS - 20 September, 2002: It's struck me that I could have given this magazine a name like that of a Chinese restaurant, Final Happiness, for example. It would be appropriate and slightly quirky, unlike the clinical-sounding moniker we have now "Generator 21". Sounds so industrial, doesn't it? What was I thinking that afternoon sitting in the park below San Francisco's City Hall with all the other homeless people? Maybe it had something to do with encountering my former girlfriend, The Count, asking me if I wanted "a date".

Oops! Talking about the past again! My bad.

Okay, I promised you last week that I would aspire toward a momentary "flash of brilliance". So let's see what we can do about that...MORE


Text graphic: 'Powerssound - Delbert Rides Again'.

by BOB POWERS

Marietta, OH, USA - If you're the sort of reader who doesn't care for details in reviews of new CDs, just the final decision, I'll make it easy for you. Run, don't walk, to your nearest dealer and demand a copy of Delbert McClinton's new album, "Room to Breathe" (New West Records).

McClinton, who's been in the music business almost as long as I've been writing about it, won a much-deserved Grammy last year with his wonderful release called "Nothing Personal." That album continues to chart in the music journal Billboard and this new one should climb rapidly in any of several categories, including blues, jazz, folk and country. It's rare that an artist can dip his toes into multiple categories while not offending at least some of his fans. McClinton gets away with his crisscrossing because he's simply one of the best musicians working today....MORE

by JAMIE MENUTIS

Robert Jensen joined the University of Texas faculty in 1992 after completing his Ph.D. on media law and ethics in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota. He teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in media law, ethics, and politics. Prior to his academic career, he worked as a professional journalist for a decade.

In his research, Jensen draws on a variety of critical approaches. Much of his work has focused on pornography and the radical feminist critique of sexuality. In more recent work, he has addressed questions of race through a critique of white privilege and institutionalized racism.

In addition to teaching and research, Jensen writes for popular media, both alternative and mainstream. His opinion and analytic pieces on such subjects as foreign policy, politics, and race have appeared in papers around the country. He also is involved in a number of activist groups working against U.S. military and economic domination of the rest of the world...MORE


Text graphic: 'irish eyes - Mattie Lennon Sampler II'.

by MATTIE LENNON

Dublin, IRELAND - FEARFUL BOASTERS: "Children are great boasters, because they feel tiny and insecure, because the great world towers above them; and anyone who grows up so completely that he grows out of boasting will have a lot of adjustments to make before he is fit for the Kingdom of Heaven."

Those words were written by John D. Sheridan more than fifty years ago. And I don't know about you, but I could do with taking another look at them. Because my attitude to those who boast is one of intolerance; intolerance without giving a thought to the fact that my prejudice might be contributing to the collapse of the only world that person has ...MORE
