"Biko" - great (and then current) social justice song by Peter Gabriel.

Also available auf Deutsch!

Finally! "In 2014, Peter Gabriel will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his solo career."

The rarified art of actually getting a "social justice song" on the charts, and the radio

Awsome poster-art!
The latter two seem a bit Saul Bass inspired.
  Thu. 12/19/13 6:48am P-90:

@Dave: it's a concentrate, right? Like a base? The ad says you can make a "sinus clearing" stew from it
  Thu. 12/19/13 6:50am P-90:

@ Guido: Saul Bass is exactly right. He was hugely influential in the 60's and 70's
Avatar    Thu. 12/19/13 6:52am Dave B:

The stew? Yeah. Its basically the stuff you pickle the daikon and cabbage in. She also sells completed kimchi.

The hangover stew makes for some killer chili etc...

Usually I don't care about holidays THAT much, but recently, they've never been so wanted…

So Meghan is planning a murder and going to try to Mexico to escape?
  Thu. 12/19/13 7:38am P-90:

So you're gonna be busy putting that together at home, then packing etc to go away.
I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
Where to you go in Mexico? big beach town, or?
Avatar    Thu. 12/19/13 7:39am Guido (Cologne):

concerning Eddy Grant:
Why were the Equals called the Equals?
Also fits this show's theme somehow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/19/13 7:40am Meghan:

I am already exhausted P-90! Once I am at my hotel, I'll be much more relaxed. Or maybe when I am stuffing my face with a taco.... I am headed to Mexico City. I can't wait!

So you already have the theme for the follow-up-show, haven't you?
Mariachi orchestras ...
... well, enough unpleasant things going on there with the narcos, who give orders for gangsters-anthems, which sound very joyful, but have pretty obnoxious lyrical content.

Mercy is not justice but an expression of power.
Who wants mercy from Putin?

- their imprisonment was an injustice from the beginning. In such situations, True Justice would be clearing their names & giving them back all that was taken from them in terms of time & trauma &tc. That never happens.
