REMEMBERING PABLO CASTELAZ

BRMCオフィシャル・ニュースより

Pablo Castelaz
June 21st, 2003- June 27th, 2009

Pablo, the 6 year old son of our long time friend Jeff Castelaz, lost his heartbreaking battle with Wilm's Tumor this weekend. Wilm's Tumor is a rare form of cancer that attacks children.

Jeff has documented Pablo's fight against cancer over the past year on Pablog, a site he and his family created to keep people up to speed on the treatment.

On Pablog, the days and months of Pablo's fight has been relayed to the public and has helped prevent people from forgetting how awful cancer can be, especially when it affects children. Pablo's spirit, strength, courage, energy and youthful exuberance became the real-time face (and what a wonderful one at that) of this disease.

Sadly, Pablo's fight came to an end on Saturday, when Jeff announced via Pablog that his son had died:

Pablo Thrailkill Castelaz passed from this life at 1:30 p.m.

He left this life in the same way he entered it: beautifully, gracefully and in the loving arms of his Mommy and Papa and dear big brother Grady.

He left this life in the middle of his parents' bed - the bed he's grown up in, from day one until today, his final day.

A memorial for Pablo will be held tomorrow evening at the Descanso Gardens in Los Angeles. More information is available here.

At the onset of Pablo's fight, the Castelaz Family created The Pablove Foundation to help generate money for The Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and for Wilm's Tumor research. Money has been raised through the site, through live events and even a compilation CD and more events will continue to take place to continue this fight.

With love from Robert, Peter, Leah and the BRMC family and Crew.

ルナティック・アサイラムに迷い込む

KASABIAN 3rdアルバム 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' CD

アルバムを初めて聴いた時、前作「エンパイア」程には衝撃を感じなかったのが正直なところ…
彼ら独特の疾走感、野蛮さ、不穏なムードは引きずりながらも、音がなんだか少しおしゃれになったような…
変化を確かめるかのごとく、さらに聴いてみる…気付けば何度も聴いてしまっている…
これぞ彼らの策略か?正常な脳がいつの間にか、静かに狂気へ蝕まれていく…
相変わらず、一度聴いたら耳につき頭から離れないメロディー…悔しいがまたはまってしまったようだ。
このアルバムで見せた狂気。ライヴではどの様に化けてくるのか、今から楽しみである。
