Diary of a Teenage Nudist

hope your all tuning into sbs tonight.

I can't wait for nudestock.

10pm - 11pm : Diary of a Teenage Nudist

Eighteen-year-old Bianca Badham grew up in a typical British nudist club. Fascinated by the rise of teenage nudism on both sides of the Atlantic, she embarks on a journey to discover why nudism, previously the preserve of the middle aged, is now so popular with British and American youth, and whether it is harmless fun or a paedophile's dream? On her journey, Bianca asks other young people who have discovered nudism what they think it's really about and why they enjoy it so much. Along the way she considers some of the pitfalls of an activity which for many is utterly taboo. As well as meeting young British nudists at a weekend event, she travels to America where nudist ideology is being actively promoted to children. She attends a nudist camp in New York State, and Nudestock 2004 in Sacramento, the biggest nudist rock festival in the world. Bianca also visits experts such as professors and sex therapists who raise questions about whether nudism has a sexual side, what its benefits might be, and whether, in the current atmosphere of paedophile paranoia, it is still possible for teenage nudism to be pursued in the spirit it was originally intended.

Record Companies Intend to Make Criminals of Us All

In Record Companies Intend to Make Criminals of Us All, Ernest Miller gives it to the big wigs in the music industry for there increasing short sightedness and there constant quest to turn consumers into criminals.
In other words, record labels will only succeed in encouraging disrespect for copyright law. Thanks a lot, you bunch of short-sighted morons.
But when he calls them short-sighted morons, the thought that instantly comes to mind is how Australian politicians are acting the same way. Only worried about the near future, about surpluses and there next step in there political future, rather then the people they serve and the infrastructures to improve conditions for there people, for example the Government just gave millions of dollars of hand outs to farmers, Yes ok it is much needed, but what about infrastructure to change the situation. Not a thing, not popular enough an issue, But lets bend over backwards to get a pretty little drug trafficker out of Indonesia.
