I'm surprised there's not been a topic made on this, so thought I'd get the ball rolling.

I've been keeping an eye on this on various news channels and through YouTube conversations (hardly the pinnacle of impartial news reporting, but still) and have been finding it all rather fascinating, albeit somewhat amusing.

It'd be interesting if any forumites Stateside could share their opinions. I'm curious to know how people's opinions are split in terms of healthcare reform. I get the impression that it is a minority of right-wingers who're foaming at the mouth at the "evils" of socialised medicine, seeing as our media only ever seems to report on the extremes of American opinion. I could be wrong though.

Hi guys,

This topic is pretty Ronseal but I'll go ahead and explain anyway. Many of you probably won't remember me, but I used to post here quite a lot under a different moniker. It's a bit of a long shot, but I thought I'd ask if anyone knows of a flat/house to let in the Cambridge area? I'm moving down there in a month to start an internship on the science park and have been hitting brick wall after brick wall with the accomodation. I'm beginning to reach my wits end to be honest. If anyone knows anyone who has any property to let could they please get in touch. My only requirements are that it have at least two bedrooms and be furnished.

Like I said, it's a long shot, but if you don't ask you'll never know.

Cheers.

Rage Against the Machine will reunite for Coachella
Red Hot Chili Peppers and Björk also top the bill for the three-day music festival.
By Geoff Boucher, Times Staff Writer
January 22, 2007


Rage Against the Machine, the seminal L.A. band that made heavy music into political manifesto, will reunite after a seven-year lull for one show as the headliners at the 2007 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Sources say Rage, which played the main stage at the first Coachella in 1999, will be joined by other familiar faces for the eighth edition of the festival, which covers three days this year and begins April 27: Red Hot Chili Peppers, which headlined in 2003, are back, as is Björk, who topped the bill in 2002.

Organizers were mum this weekend and it was not clear which day Rage or the other acts were slotted to play; that announcement is expected in the next few days. Other acts expected in the eclectic lineup: Arcade Fire, Interpol, Willie Nelson, the Roots, Manu Chao, the Decemberists, Arctic Monkeys, Sonic Youth, Crowded House, Air, Tiësto and Kings of Leon.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, via Ticketmaster. Three-day passes will cost about $250 and there will be a limited number of single-day passes available.

The headliners are not novel, but they are potent. The Peppers are up for their first best album Grammy right now, and Björk remains a mesmerizing figure to fans of avant pop. But in Southern California rock circles, there is very little that could compete with the excitement of a Rage Against the Machine reunion. The quartet's hybrid of funk, rap, metal and leftist ideology was as subtle as a Molotov cocktail; in the 1990s, its aggro-anthems made it the only band that mattered to a fan base that included East L.A. protest kids as well as those in Hollywood punk circles, college dorms and mainstream rock festival mosh pits, where politics were secondary to the group's feral energy.

The band is vocalist Zack de la Rocha, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk. Their split came amid rumors of bad blood between De la Rocha and his mates, who went on to work with Chris Cornell in Audioslave. However, Morello and De la Rocha appeared together at a 2005 rally for the urban farmers of a South Los Angeles community garden.

So, anyone from the States going to be going? I've heard Interpol shall be performing there as well. I'd give my right arm to get tickets to see RATM, but it's way too far for a poor student like me.

I can only hope they'll decide to do a reunion tour of some kind (with a date in the UK) after they play at Coachella.
