The Really Free School is a learning collective that opposes organized education that increasingly needs to be paid for and/or justified in financial and vocational terms.
The Sherlock Holmes moviemaker bought the house in the Fitzrovia area of the British capital in May 2010. He also bought the adjoining property so he could convert the houses into a big mansion. He planned to set up there with his girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley but things might take a little bit longer...
12 members of the Really Free School moved into the building this week end, taking advantage of the U.K.'s squatters right law which says that as long as you don't break into an empty property, you have the right to stay. They have hung banners in windows reading "occupy", "resist" and "strike" and advertised online for more people to join them...
If you want free lessons in squatting, anarchy and tarot reading, you should find what you're looking for at 34-35 Fitzroy Square, London...
It is very likely that you have heard of RJD2 (born Ramble John Krohn) and haven’t even realized it yet. The DJ/producer has been making music since the mid-nineties when he was the background DJ for the Columbus, OH, rap group MHz. His name comes from a friend’s shout-out on a rap track that stuck with him. He later released a solo “mix CD” titled Your Face and Your Kneecaps under the Fondle ‘Em record label. A year later, he signed onto Definitive Jux, the record label operated by renowned DJ El-P, and released two highly acclaimed solo records Deadringer and Since We Last Spoke. During his time on Definitive Jux, he worked with fellow Columbus MC, Blueprint, and released two albums under the collaborative title Soul Position, the second of which was released under the Rhymesayers label. He continued to work with underground rappers producing beats for Cunninlynguists, Cage, MFDoom, Diverse, Aceyalone, and also producing a cover of Radiohead’s “Airbag,” for the album Exit Music. He released his third solo album, The Third Hand, after leaving Rhymesayers for the XL Recordings label, citing an interest in making music that was more “pop-friendly.” In 2009, he left XL Recordings to create his own record label, Electrical Connections, which is expected to release his first fully independent album, The Colossus, sometime next year.
In her early days, Madonna was never shy about revealing her personal life with the public. But the damages received from an ongoing lawsuit over stolen photos of her wedding to estranged husband, Guy Ritchie, show an artist who has become less than eager to show the world her “private details.”
Even though she was not in court Tuesday, her lawyer, John Kelly, announced that the singer had received “substantial” damages from Associated Newspapers, publisher of the Mail on Sunday who printed the stolen photos without consenting with the singer. The amount of restitution received was not disclosed, but Madonna was seeking damages in excess of $8 million. Kelly announced the money would be donated to the artist’s Raising Malawi charity, an organization working to end poverty, provide education, and help stop the spread of HIV/AIDS in the impoverished country in mid-Africa.
