Hi Blog. For another Weekend Tangent, we have rock star Sting being asked for an opinion of documentary “The Cove” and dolphin slaughters by activist Ric O’Barry.  Sting gives an intelligent opinion without alienating his Japanese market (something he’s had a history of doing in the past):

If you want to see Sting more in character vis-a-vis his outspokenness, have a listen to him playing “Murder By Numbers” with Frank Zappa some years ago. Arudou Debito

  • “We’re in crisis in aspects of human endeavour… We only evolve as a species when we’re in crisis… waking people up [to what is happening will cause that evolution]”

    He’s kidding right? My experience is people only change what their doing when forced to, and they want to actively ignore what others do. In both cases, everybody knows. Especially on this particular issue.

    Now, “Uncle Frank”, I miss. Some of the most amazing and influential works ever created.
