Wow. Dancehall is prime time international TV news. Well, almost. CNN International reported about him being cleared on Jamaica tax charges.

A little more in debth is The Guardian´s story on The Clash

scraping the punk barrel in the bid to find new material

and thereby insuring their pension plan.

From plans to pants: Wayne & Wax post about dancehall dancers´ gayish routines and outfits made it on Dancehallreggae.com and caused a very vibrant discussion. Head over to Wayne´s blog for the outtakes.

Head over to Facebook to see some nice photographs which I totally slept on: “Ever wondered where Jamaica´s Gold Come From?” – some shots of Jamaican training facilities Peter Dean Rickard´s took for the New York Times´ coverage of the Olympic tournament in Bejing. Also see Pete´s “A Beautiful Nerd” series in Futureclaw magazine.
