Adam Yauch from The Beastie Boys is having global SMASH CANCER WITH LIGHTENING BOLTS meditation sessions, I am pleased to report. Here’s a letter he sent to the Beastie Boys’ mailing list today:

hello,

wanted to send this out to you guys in case you were into it, or wanted to give it to anyone who you think might be.

a few friends and i are meditating at the same time twice a day. 9:30am and 6:30pm eastern standard time, for about an hour and half.

we are picturing smashing apart all of the cancer cells in the world.

we are visualizing taking the energy away from the cancer, and then sending it back at the cancer as lightening bolts that will break apart the DNA and RNA of the cells. if you have the time, please join us in whipping up this lightening storm. mind over matter……

if you prefer to sit then sit, but if you are not used to meditating, or sitting quietly doesn’t sound like fun, put on some music and dance while you do the visualization, and if you want to do it at some other time, or picture curing some other illness that’s fine too. yoko will be joining the meditation by visualizing all of us dancing with joy to celebrate the world without cancer. all variations are welcome. this is really just being done with a wish for all beings to be cured of all illnesses and to find true lasting happiness.

i’ll also be saying prayers for the earthquake victims in tibet, so join in on that if you can too.

please feel free to pass this onto anyone who you think may find it interesting.

with all my love,

adam yauch

I approve that message, and I am going to join in on some of the sessions. I invite you to do similar. Visualising smashing cancer cells with lightening sounds ILL. What we need, I think, is some pictures of cancer cells to help with the visualisey. Anyone got any good ones?

EDIT: That’s 230 pm and 11:30 pm, UK folks! Cheers Rich Lillie for the info.

This has no right to be anything other than exrutiatingly toe-curly and shit, yet it is somehow charming and funny and pretty bloody accurate. Yah!

This was posted on 2DopeBoys. They were all laughing at it.

I didn’t laugh.

I dropped a tear.

True talk.

What does that mean?

Sheee-it.

The other guy – Lin Yu Chun – is basically the Taiwanese Susan Boyle.

How is it that Willy Shatner’s talky singing thing is so transcendent a thing?

This is both entirely predictable, and mental in the face, especially considering the entirely fraudulent YouGov poll claiming a win for the evident LOSER Cameron published as soon as last night’s Leaders’ Debate finished.

From The Independent:

The Sun newspaper failed to publish a YouGov poll showing that voters fear a Liberal Democrat government less than a Conservative or Labour one.

The Liberal Democrats accused the newspaper, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, of suppressing the finding. The paper, which endorsed Labour in the past three elections, declared its support for David Cameron during the Labour Party’s annual conference last October. Like other Tory-supporting papers, it has turned its fire on Nick Clegg over his policies, pro-European statements and expenses claims since he won last week’s first televised leaders’ debate.

YouGov also found that if people thought Mr Clegg’s party had a significant chance of winning the election, it would win 49 per cent of the votes, with the Tories winning 25 per cent and Labour just 19 per cent. One in four people Labour and one in six Tory supporters say they would switch to the Liberal Democrats in these circumstances. The party would be ahead among both men and women, in every age and social group, and in every region. On a uniform swing across Britain, that would give the Liberal Democrats 548 MPs, Labour 41 and the Tories 25.

Read the rest here. Cheers ZP for the heads up.
