Wow, all the band links are to Facebook pages, not MySpace pages. Africa is evolving, for sure.

Man do I hope that the file works again by this afternoon...I'm on a six hour flight tomorrow and this would be such an awesome way to spend the beginning of it...!

I think Mister Bijou just wanted an excuse to type "zeitgeist."

I lived in Libya in the late 70s and through the 80s. The dictatorship there is extremely entrenched. What these people are doing is truly brave. I'm spreading the link via Facebook but not emailng it to any of my friends there directly so as not to put them in a compromising position.
