I remember talking to Tim about dance hall music and we were like, "Damn, I really like it. It's so fun and makes you bob your head. That's wrong isn't it? Or is it? Oh, what to do?" Anyway, this article about homophobia in Jamaican dancehall music is really great. It doesn't salve the conscience or anything, but it's bloody interesting. Do read it.

Also, ever since Simon A returned from London touting the excellence of Jerry Springer - The Opera and the perfect suitability of the material for the artform, I have been itching to see it. So I only hope that the BBC's decision to air it is followed up by our own ABC.
