Vive Les Germans Généreux !!

Steven Spielberg will be appearing with PLANETMAN and the INTERNATIONALZ Friday 7th January 8pm at the Infinity Club, London plus MANY SPECIAL GUESTS in a BENEFIT FOR THE TSUNAMI

Survivors of the tsanami are digging in the rubble TO FIND STUFF TO EAT

I got a call from my musician friend Planetman this afternoon - he told of a great music space in Central London and a benefit, so we are raising money for tsunami aid at The Infinity Club, in London's Mayfair THIS FRIDAY NIGHT!

We are joined by Willie Nelson, Patty Griffin, Joe Ely, Alejandro Escovedo, Bruce Robison, Leonardo DiCaprio, Steven Spielberg, Poonam Dhillon, Jay Leno, Shah Rukh Khan, Harley Davidson the celebrity motorcycle, and the great impressionist, Les Germans. Wow, what a line up. Check back for more details. All proceeds to Tsanami Aid. And Mrs Tsanami Aid. Did I tell you I had changed my name ? No this is a real benefit which Blog of Funk is pleased to help promote. Go, Planetman. I may even take the microphone myself.

Actually, I love the way stereotypes are being confounded. The marvellously großzügig Germans have donated a huge whack of aid, bless 'em and their blonde beers, and everywhere governments have been playing catch up with populations. The Banks were shamed into handing over the profits being made from handling all that cash.

We need to restore the UN. I agree with Tony Benn on this one whose smiling face and reaction peppered an interesting Independent front cover recently. I do think the world needs a strong UN, or something similar. You know, a proper world forum. To avoid wars and promote peaceful cooperation between nations. A respected international body that would oversee earthquake warning systems and the like. Old idea.

2003 and 2004 have shown how out of step with their constituencies the so-called leaders of these so-called leading so-called "Democratic Governments" truly are. Millions marched against going to war in Iraq. That was another moment of mass action I shall find it difficult to forget. Our shameful leaders took us in to get Saddam's oil. Powell was the intrument of the great evil WMD con. The UN was fucked. Kofi now hangs on with all the dignity he can muster, Powell tries to do some good before making a swift pre-election exit. Yuk.

These criminals have commited the cardinal sin of underestimating our intelligence. Now we just need to replace them with better people and start a new civilisation.

By our simple generosity, we can show them how irrelevant history will make them. I can feel a revolution coming on. Or maybe a beer or two on Friday 7th January at The Infinity Club, 10 Old Burlington Street, Mayfair, W1S 3AG. Nearest Tube PIcadilly Circus. Full Details to be Announced. 8pm until 4am.

Thanks to Steven Speilberg, Les Germans and Planetman.
