Thequietus: The Quietus | Features | Tome On The Range | A Righteous Tale: On Julian Cope's One Three One


Aug Stone hits the accelerator on the Archdrude's 'Time-Shifting Gnostic Hooligan Road Novel'
When asked about the complexity of his first novel, V, Thomas Pynchon famously replied 'Why should things be easy to understand?' Julian Cope, it seems, has adopted this motto at maximum volume for his own fiction debut. In the midst of all the drug taking, time travel, and revenge plots, perhaps most confusing is Cope's choice of subject matter: while we all know that in appreciating a work of fiction, it's a mistake to look for too much of the real life behind an author's characters, as if the novelist has simply transposed himself into a

Npr: Bob Mould: Tiny Desk Concert (Bob Boilen)

Bild/Foto
The former Hüsker Dü and Sugar frontman plugs in for a characteristically loud four-song set — three from his new solo album (Beauty and Ruin) and one from the band that launched his career.

Bob Mould came alone, except for his 1987 Lake Placid Blue Fender Stratocaster. We provided the Epiphone Blues Custom 30 amp, which he promptly cranked. Needless to say, he announced his own Tiny Desk Concert without using the paging system.Mould isn't a shy man — his power chords will tell you that — but he's humble and gentle. Many know Mould from his days with Hüsker Dü, an awesome punkish band from Minnesota that laid the groundwork for the Pixies and more. His subsequent work with Sugar managed to do something none of his other records did so well: Copper

Firstlook: Leaked Files: German Spy Company Helped Bahrain Hack Arab Spring Protesters - The Intercept (Cora Currier)

A notorious surveillance technology company that helps governments around the world spy on their citizens sold software to Bahrain during that country’s brutal response to the Arab Spring movement, according to leaked internal documents posted this week on the internet. The documents show that FinFisher, a German surveillance company, helped Bahrain install spyware on 77 computers, including those belonging to human rights lawyers and a now-jailed opposition leader, between 2010 and 2012—a period that includes Bahrain’s crackdown on pro-democracy protesters. ...

Sommer-Interview mit dem PARTEI-Politiker Martin Sonneborn zu seinem gescheiterten Rücktritt
...
Lassen Sie uns auch mal über Politik reden. Welche Abstimmungen im EU-Parlament waren für Sie die ulkigsten?
Martin Sonneborn: Die Abstimmungen sind weitgehend unspektakulär, zumeist reine Formsache, weil bereits vorher alles verhandelt und beschlossen ist. Ulkig war das Abspielen der Europäischen Hymne. Ich sitze ja inmitten der Verhaltensauffälligen, und sämtliche Nationalisten und Rechtsradikalen sind aufgestanden und haben sich umgedreht.

naja, ich mag Sonneborn, aber das Interview war eher mau. Aber seine Amtszeit ist ja (hoffentlich) noch lang, da wird es bestimmt noch mehr Chancen für hoffentlich bissigeres geben.

Spiegel: Überwachung der Deutschen: Regierung erklärt Pläne zur Facebook-Kontrolle - SPIEGEL ONLINE (Ole Reißmann)

Deutschland nimmt sich die NSA zum Vorbild: Die Bundesregierung will die Internet?berwachung durch Bundeswehr und Geheimdienst ausbauen. Dazu gehört auch die systematische Ausforschung von Facebook.

Was Nutzer von sozialen Medien wie Facebook öffentlich ins Netz stellen, ist nach Ansicht der Regierung frei zur Überwachung. "Es liegt kein Eingriff in das allgemeine Persönlichkeitsrecht vor, wenn eine staatliche Stelle im Internet verfügbare Kommunikationsinhalte erhebt, die sich an jedermann oder zumindest an einen nicht weiter eingrenzbaren Personenkreis richten", heißt es in der Antwort des Innenministeriums.

Chron: Blues legend Johnny Winter dies at 70 in Zurich


GENEVA (AP) Texas blues icon Johnny Winter, who rose to fame in the late 1960s and '70s for his energetic performances and musical collaborations including with childhood hero Muddy Waters, has died. The statement said his wife, family and bandmates were all saddened by the loss of one of the world's finest guitarists. Winter, who was instantly recognizable for his long white hair, worked with some of the greatest bluesmen, producing several albums for Waters and recording with John Lee Hooker.

Good bye Johnny ... :-(

That material includes previously unreleased takes of songs such as Waltz For Aidan and Christmas Steps, a couple of unreleased tracks – Satchel Panzer and Spoon Test - and a handful of rarities, Nick Drake and Hugh Dallas among them.

Npr: John Grant: Tiny Desk Concert (Bob Boilen)





July 13, 2014by BOB BOILEN • John Grant's songs don't mess around: The music isn't complicated, while the lyrics function as darts of retort and thought. His album Pale Green Ghosts is decorated with synthesizers, his voice often drenched in reverb; those tools and textures help make the record strong and everlasting.

So when Grant came to the Tiny Desk with just an acoustic guitarist — and wanted to play piano himself — I feared that the power of the songs I'd come to love wouldn't translate amid such bare sounds. I was wrong, and his music was just right. The lyrics rush forward and hit hard. Try this line from the first song he performs, "Where Dreams Go to Die":

Looking at this further, having seen it working ok on a test Friendica installation.
/var/www/virtual/html is the wrong directory, the directory to look at is the Temp Path in the admin settings. This has to be writable by the poller.
For an existing Friendica server you could be using something different from /tmp which is the default now.
Also make sure you're not using a directory in ram which doesn't exist after a reboot.
Thanks @Keith Fernie
Looks like my system couldn't detect the correct path to the installation. I entered the path in admin setting, for now the poller is quiet again.
Because this issue was on all my three servers and all are on a shared host (@Uberspace User Group ), other users running their installations at Uberspace, should look at the admin settings too.
