THIS mysterious monument could be proof there was once life on Mars.
The rectangular structure — measuring five metres across — was photographed by a super high resolution camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The giant monolith juts out of the planet's surface casting a huge shadow below.

Its emergence on website Lunar Explorer Italia has got space buffs speculating if it could have been constructed by creatures once living on the red planet. The monument resembles the black monolith seen in Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey. In the movie the structure is believed to be a key to man's evolution.

And astonishingly Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the Moon, revealed a similar monolith was detected on Mars' moon Phobos. Speaking last week, he insisted: "We should visit the moons of Mars. "There's a monolith there - a very unusual structure on this little potato shaped object that goes around Mars once every seven hours. "When people find out about that they are going to say, 'Who put that there? Who put that there?'"

But scientists at the University of Arizona have cast doubt on the discovery saying the huge object is a "boulder". A spokesman for the university's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory said: "It would be unwise to refer to it as a 'monolith' or 'structure' because that implies something artificial, like it was put there by someone for example. "In reality it's more likely that this boulder has been created by breaking away from the bedrock to create a rectangular-shaped feature."
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

John Carter's fridge.
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Yep, on Dolphy's Out There, plus another date with Dolphy and Mal Waldron.

Roy Haynes plays on that one. Dolphy knows talent when he sees it. How is the album?

Good. Not as good as Out to Lunch or Last Date, but good.

Oh for hip hop fans that aren't huge into jazz, Ron Carter plays on the tune "Verses From the Abstract" on ATCQ's Low End Theory. Q-Tip calls him out about 12 times in the song if I remember him correctly.

Thread drift was sudden, comprehensive and welcome.

That's a beautiful sentence, Heston.

By the way, my first contribution was on topic!

Carter has since mentioned that his playing on Out There is a little substandard because he had a massive cold that day.

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)

His intonation is noticeably off at times.

I'd like to congratulate the Chinese on building a perfect replica of the movie studio that the Americans used to fake the moon landings.
