“What ever this country is willing to do to the least thought about will eventually happen to all Americans.”

True story. It is exactly 10 (ten) years since I launched akirathedon.com, dropped the first online mixtape, and started my blog.

Last night I played the final ATD show, with MC Lars, in London. Here’s a picture above taken by a wonderful fellow human who suffered a London hostel just so she could witness the thing:

I had hoped to document the proceedings, but the camera crew didn’t show till late, but if any more crowd sourced documentation comes through I’ll drop it here. It was a joyous event, albeit bittersweet. Shout out Jack and Marv and Pixel and ben for holding me down (and up, in the air during the final song). Thanks to Motorcycle Club Lars for inviting me to come and play – there wouldn’t have even been a final ATD show had he not asked. I’d have just sailed off into the sun.

Thank you everyone who came down and showed love and everyone who said beautiful things about what my music has meant to them over the years. That makes it all mean something. I am very grateful to ave been a part of your lives.

I’m not one for nostalgia (which was considered a disease when the term was first coined), and hadn’t planned any anniversary celebrations – even the finality of the A.T.D.R.I.P. album (get yours here now!) was a last minute, barely considered decision. How crazy, in retrospect, that the last show, a thing entirely unplanned by me, happened on May 19th 2014, the very last day of The Decade Of Don. That is some pretty beautiful symmetry, and pleases my mild OCDness.

Afterwards Charlotte and I packed the remaining merch into Tally, and drove to auntie Nonny’s to collect our sleeping Herc. He looked different, again. He smiled when he recognised me.

Get your mighty Don Merch here!

I’ve been hand drawing some ATDRIP sleeves for people. Here’s a few of them, you can order your very own for a limited time (until I go back to America I think) here.




Speaking of America, my Visa application is well underway. We are making a case for my extraordinary ability, so I can go and work in America and do MIGHTY THINGS. People of cultural import are writing letters saying how great I am. I might get them all framed, they’re amazing. Also factual. I forget sometimes how much I have achieved, despite not having had a number one single and album. In fact, I have achieved fucking tons. Now its onward to that number one single and album. I think I’ve just about logged my 10,000 hours. I am ready.

Oh, I’m gonna do one last DONNISH INQUISITION, If you have any burning questions, hit me, and I will endeavour to answer them.

From Red Ice:

For over 4 decades, Israeli born Uri Geller has been known for demonstrating telepathic and intuitive abilities and psychokinesis. He is well known for his trademark television performances of spoon bending. Gellar has been studied by the world’s leading scientists and has worked with the FBI, CIA and Mussad. Uri has lectured to Prime Ministers, Presidents, United Nations delegates and CEOs of large multinational companies. We’ll discuss the BBC film, “The Secret Lift of Uri Geller,” which explores his work for intelligence agencies on three continents for 30 years. The program was based on newly declassified information, featured interviews with former intelligence personnel, and contained actual footage from CIA tests. We’ll hear about the other side of Uri Geller, not the one camouflaged as an entertainer. Uri opens up about his abilities, how he does what he does and what kind of secret missions he worked on for government agencies around the world. We ask him why he is coming out publicly with this information. He’ll talk about remote viewing, experiments at secret paranormal research labs and otherworldly entities. We also talk about the skeptics who try to debunk him. In the member’s hour, we’ll hear more about his work for the CIA and Mussad. Uri talks about psychics, intuitives and remote viewers being used for government intelligence. He says there is no doubt that UFOs, aliens and time travelers are all real. Later, we question the attack on 9/11. Geller gives his view on terrorism and his concern for a future nuclear attack.

A very interesting conversation on this year’s hot alt-history topic… GIANTS.

From Redice:

Richard J. Dewhurst is the Emmy Award–winning writer of the HBO feature documentary Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam. A graduate of NYU with degrees in journalism, film, and television, he has written and edited for the History Channel, the Arts & Entertainment Channel, PBS, Fox Television and Fox Films, ABC News, TNT, Paramount Pictures, and the Miami Herald. He lives in Vermont. We’ll discuss his book, The Ancient Giants Who Ruled America. Drawing on 400 years of newspaper articles and photos, first person accounts, state historical records, and illustrated field reports, Richard J. Dewhurst reveals not only that North America was once ruled by an advanced race of giants but also that the Smithsonian has been actively suppressing the physical evidence for nearly 150 years. He’ll discuss how thousands of giant skeletons have been unearthed at Mound Builder sites across the continent, only to disappear from the historical record. We’ll hear about giant discoveries in locations such as Nevada, Florida, California and the ruins of the giants’ cities with populations in excess of 100,000 in Arizona, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Louisiana. In the second hour, Dewhurst speaks more on the suppression of this evidence and the cover up. Today, ancient mounds have no official protection and are being bulldozed for parking lots. American Indians are preventing research of mounds, although they admit they did not build them. We’ll hear about where some of the giants’ bones are today. Richards also talks about an old, advanced nautical culture and ancient European migration to the USA. Later, we discuss the distorted picture of what America was like despite evidence of a coordinated social structure that celebrated making earth a sacred landscape, long before our arrival.
