Fred Armisen And Bill Hader Release Talking Heads Parody Album [Listen]

first_imgWhen we first heard about Fred Armisen and Bill Hader’s new series Documentary Now!, we couldn’t help but be intrigued by the concept. The two acclaimed SNL alums came together for a mockumentary series, and even created a Talking Heads parody band called Test Pattern for the show.After releasing a single called “Art + Student,” it seems the duo has taken the project one step further, releasing a full length album called Final Transmission. Most of the music has been featured in the series, but the fact that Armisen and Hader have put together a full length album for their parody truly shows their dedication to making a joke last.Fortunately, thanks to Consequence of Sound, we can stream the album in full. Listen to Test Pattern’s new release, Final Transmission, below.last_img read more

Corruption Allegations: NFF Drags Obla to Court

first_img“The obvious conclusion here is that some interested persons have an unrestrained and direct access to Chief Obono-Obla, and have thus secured a front row seat that allows them a pre-knowledge of all steps to be taken by Chief Obono-Obla and or SPIP, which they gleefully publish ahead of these steps.” the statement added.The counsel to the NFF questioned why a warrant of arrest will be obtained from a magistrate court instead of a High Court as prescribed by the law setting up the SPIP.“More grievous to the rights of our client and its officials is the fact that Chief Obono-Obla and SPIP went to secure a warrant of arrest from a magistrate court contrary to the clear provisions of the Recovery of Public Property (Special Provisions) Act, the law setting up the SPIP, that ONLY the Federal High Court is vested with the jurisdiction to issue warrants forthe SPIP.“It can only be concluded that this deviation was purposely to achieve the aim of avoiding the protection afforded everyone, including the affected NFF officials, under the same law that set up SPIP, which requires the SPIP to present a prima facie case to a judge of the Federal High Court to justify its case before a warrant of arrest may be issued under the hand of the judge”.Barrister Nasir however stated that he has filed a suit against the presidential panel in the FCT high court Abuja.“Our client and the affected NFF officials have also taken the additional step to file a suit, FC/ABJ/CS/17/2019 at the Federal High Court, Abuja Division (The only court statutory conferred with jurisdiction over SPIP matters under the enabling act). The suit is to allow this whole sordid matter to be ventilated in the Court of the land and to check the oppression of our client and its officials.”Four operatives of the Special Presidential Investigative Panel on the Recovery of Public Properties had on Friday Morning stormed the Nigeria Football Federation Headquarter, popularly known as the Glass House to effect the arrest warrant on NFF President, Amaju Pinnick and four other top NFF officials.The Special Presidential Investigative Panel had on Tuesday obtained a warrant of arrest from a Magistrate Court for the  NFF President, Pinnick, First vice President, Seyi Akinwunmi, Second Vice President, Shehu Dikko, NFF Secretary General, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi and Ahmed Yusuf ‘Fresh’.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has warned against persecution and public show trial of its officials by the Special Presidential Investigatory Panel (SPIP) on the recovery of public property, headed by Okoi Obona-Obla.The NFF through its lawyers, Mamman Nasir in a statement at the weekend bemoaned the “orchestrated media campaign” against it officials and the use of an “online media mob” to promote the pre-determined media reportage of the activities of Chief Obon-Obla and SPIP.“It must be pointed out that while these publications of the news of the warrant of arrest started on Wednesday 9th January 2019, the date on the face of the eventual published warrant unlawfully obtained from a magistrate’s court in Abuja is Thursday 10th January 2019.last_img read more

Ecuador invites Costa Rica and other countries to discuss Venezuelan migration

first_imgFollowing in the footsteps of Ecuador, Peru will also require a passport, which is difficult to obtain in Venezuela due to the deep crisis that has led to the shortage of food, medicine, and even paper.Before the measure, the Venezuelans only had to show their ID to move among the Andean countries.“All the processes that are taking place in America are important to establish the policies that are indispensable to deal with the issue of migration of Venezuelan citizens in the best and most responsible way,” Chávez added.Colombia — where more than one million Venezuelans entered in 16 months — asked Ecuador and Peru on Tuesday to define a single policy for Venezuelans, after warning about the risk of an “irregular migration” on account of the passport requirement.Bogotá fears that this new requirement will cause migrants to block up their borders.

Most arrive by foot and in poor condition.According to their calculations only 20 percent of those who arrive, stay on Ecuadorean ground. The others continue to Peru and Chile. Ecuador is organizing a meeting with the ministers from 13 countries in South and Central America to discuss the exceptionally high number of Venezuelans migrants escaping the economic crisis in their country, the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.The countries invited to the event, which will be held Sept. 17 and 18, include Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Paraguay, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Uruguay, and Venezuela.The goal is to “exchange opinions, to see what countries are doing in different aspects” in relation to the migration of Venezuelans, said Deputy Minister of Human Mobility, Santiago Chávez.Since last weekend, Ecuador requires Venezuelans entering its territory to show a passport. The measure excludes minors whose parents carry the document. Venezuelans flock to Panama to escape Maduro economy Brazil sends troops after clashes at Venezuela borderlast_img read more
