  • THURSDAY NEWSINESS – GET WELL WISHES FOR JON DEE GRAHAM AND FAREWELL SXSW 2008

    July 31, 2008 - no Comments

    I’ve been in a fog for the last five days, one both literal and figurative, so I missed the sad news that Austin fave Jon Dee Graham was in a serious car accident. Many wishes for a peaceful recovery to Jon and his family. I saw him perform I don’t know how many years ago, and it was one of the best solo shows I’ve ever seen. Please enjoy this footage of the man at work.

    In other local-ish news, it doesn’t sound like The Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes has mellowed out much if their recent performance at New York’s Webster hall is any indication. Rawk.

    C3 has permanently scrapped plans for the Vineland festival due to the sudden popularity of… New Jersey.

    And finally, we’re taking a break here at the SXSW Music Blog ’til the middle of next week as the SXSW 2009 site launches tomorrow. Can’t wait to see the new look, and we’ll have plenty of blogtastic postings for you to start your August off right. The RSS song will remain the same, and you can continue to (not) email us at musicblog@sxsw.com.

    Farewell beautiful ‘08. It’s time to move on.

    Tchussie for now, lp

    By Dean Yates

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Reuters urged the U.S. military on Thursday to immediately release an Iraqi cameraman working for the news organization or to publicly produce evidence to justify his detention.

    Ali al-Mashhadani, who also works freelance for the BBC and Washington-based National Public Radio, was detained in Baghdad on Saturday while he was in the Green Zone government compound for routine checks for a U.S. military press card.

    U.S. forces have detained Mashhadani before. No charge has ever been filed against the cameraman, who is based in Ramadi, the capital of western Anbar province.
