Kim Nixon - acoustic folk from Berlin, Germany (originally Norwood, OH)

This is a longtime friend of mine, Kim Beyer. She moved from Norwood, Ohio to Berlin, Germany after marrying Matthias Beyer from Germany. For music, she uses her maiden name, Nixon. Her former project (also acoustic), Brownhouse, was done with her sister, Carrie, and friend, Chris Flinchbaugh. For this, however, her husband plays piano with her. She's heavily influenced by Cincinnati band Over the Rhine, but has a higher vocal range than Karin and I much prefer her music to OTR's. She's already got an EP out and has a CD coming out soon on Twelve Strings. You can check her out on myspace at:

Apologies for the Lack of New Posts

I'm just going through a lot right now.

In the meantime, check out an MP3 blog I run now called fuck, it's grind. There's been a delay in updates there, too, so don't think that I'm neglecting this for that.

Bolivia Adopts Socialist Constitution, Gives Rights to Indigenous Groups, Kicks out U.S. DEA Agents

February 4, 2009

Bolivia and its new constitution

On January 25th, Bolivia held a referendum to adopt a new national constitution, one that dramatically shifts the country, reversing discriminatory practices and granting many rights and self-determination to the 36 indigenous nations within Bolivia. After a lengthy count, officials announced that the referendum passed with over 60% of the vote. Much political and legal work remains to implement the changes, but soon most of the country's natural resources will be state-owned, land ownership will be capped at 12,000 acres, and Morales will be able to run for a second term. Challenges still lie ahead, as Bolivia remains South America's poorest country, and - after recently expelling all agents the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency - it has lost preferred trade status with the United States. President Evo Morales welcomed the constitutional win by saying "Here begins the new Bolivia", claiming the changes would work to "decolonize" Bolivia.
