April Fool’s. In August?

This is the German phonetic alphabet.

It’s no good. No longer fit for purpose.

Has to be changed, because it still reflects the anti-Semitic changes made in 1934 – “David” became “Dora”, “Nathan” became “Nordpol”.

There’s also a gender imbalance and a severe lack of ethnic and religious group representation.

“Doesn’t correspond to today’s reality of life”

So the Deutsche Institute für Normung – the folks who bring you DIN A4 size paper and DIN 931 hexagon bolts – is looking at replacing it all with city names, making sure that they’re equally spread between to eastern and western states.

Except that Saarland, Rheinland-Pfalz (us..) Bremen, Hamburg and Sachsen-Anhalt don’t get a look in.

Fuck. Them.

Happy birthday, Brian May!

Brian May, Eddie van Halen, Alan Gratzer (REO Speedwagon), Phil Chen, Fred Mandel (sessionista), Roger Taylor(Queen).

But if you really want to enjoy yourselves, have a listen to the full recording from the beginning.

Group of high class musicians noodling around until all the instruments are (sort of) lined up and WHAM, the power chord…
