Happy Xmas!

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

There really is hope out there...honestly!

When you believe...thats the important phrase..if you don't believe in anything, be it yourself, your life, your relationship then nothing will happen...but if you do truly believe in what you are trying to achieve then you really will succeed. This will be the last post before xmas so if i could just give one person a bit of hope with that phrase then i will be content. I hope the next year brings us more happiness in the way of tolerance, acceptance , peace and overall love for our surroundings. We can't go on as we are, when i was a child i knew nothing of environmental change or the warming of the planet or the fear of limited natural resources only because our parents did not have access to the information that we have today. So we can't blame the older population as they didn't know any better...but WE do...we can do something to change the world by talking to our children and families so that we can leave a legacy of environmental education and love for the planet and all that lives on it....peace on earth and goodwill to all men


I saw this film last night and it is such an amazing piece of work...everything is spot on. the atmosphere that the film evokes has been lovingly recreated by Anton Corbjin as Director. Using monochrome as his film media he portrays the poverty and the hope that existed in Manchester in the 70's and 80's perfectly with stunning acting in the lead roles. The story of course does not have a happy ending but the sheer power of the music (amazingly recreated by the actors) and the tone of the film just make you want to watch it over and over....loved it!

See you in January...donh't forget to come back...bring your friends!

A Queens Speech...

I wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to my friends, but it is so difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So I met with my lawyer yesterday, and on his advice I wish to say the following:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practised with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practise religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great (not to imply that Great Britain is necessarily greater than any other country) and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

Disclaimer: No trees were harmed in the sending of this message; however, a significant number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced.

Times Obituary for 'Mr Common Sense'

'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who
has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was,
since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He
will be remembered as having cultivated such
valuable lessons as:
Knowing when to come in out of the rain;

why the early bird gets theworm;

Life isn't always fair;

and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more
than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy
charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended
from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for
reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the
job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental
consent to administer sun lotion or an Elastoplast to a student; but
could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to
have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became
contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better
treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you
couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar
could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in
her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust;

his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He
is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now,
Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If
you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do

And a little

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 600
employees and has the following statistics?

29 have been accused of spouse abuse

7 have been arrested for fraud

19 have been accused of writing bad cheques

117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses

3 have done time for assault

71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit

4 have been arrested on drug-related charges

8 have been arrested for shoplifting

21 are currently defendants in lawsuits

84 have been arrested for drink driving in the last year

Which organization is this?

It's the 635 members of the House of Commons, the
same group that cranks out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep
the rest of us in line.

Saturday morning...17 days before xmas and i have those of you who have suffered know how damn wretched i feel today, so don't expect me to be nice ;)

1) I am currently working on a compensation claim to get all the extra milk money that i have been overcharged back...with that money i plan to buy a sterile cow and make my own milk therefore never having to spend money on milk ever again. Oh, but then i have to feed the cow, clean the cows arse, massage it's udders, shovel up shit, buy hay for bedding....fuck that, pass me the tetra pak...i'll pay, you can hold me to ransom Mr big fat greedy supermarket boss.

2) Woo hoo! Goldfrapp concert ticket on the way!...they are playing at the union chapel in London in March to celebrate the release of their new's only a tiny place (the bbc have used it on numerous occasions for their bbc sessions slot) and i have been lucky enough to get one...can't wait to see allison and will again :)

3) heard two tracks off the Moby album due in February...I was a little scared by his press release and the amount of rappers that are on the album, but the couple of tracks i heard were truly marvellous and for the list i believe.

4) who agrees with me that 'Canoe man' is a fuckwit...and I for one don't believe that his sons were not party to the deception. The 'Reggie Perrin' trick was quite well executed until he had himself snapped for a website pic...what a tosser lol...some people are born into life to create deception and fraud...this family didn't even come close....I hope they lock them all away for a thousand years or more!

5) So Joe Strummers wife finally gets to sorting out his belongings only five years after his death...what did she find? plastic bags full of tat which she has said is a treasure trove of lyrics, napkins, toilet paper (i lied about the last one) from each tour of duty that he went add to it all she is going to put it all together in a 'beautiful book' with help from Damien Hirst which will probably cost an absolute fortune...hmmm, does this project really have anything to do with Joe's oroginal vision of anarchy and punk, i don't think just smacks to me of 'what shall i do now the royalties are drying up a bit'...let me tell you though i shall probably be first in the queue to buy one (that really is how shallow i am!)

6)Top Tune

7) Top Film

Anger is not a word to be used lightly...

Below I have posted the most offensive and chilling piece of crap that I have ever come across on the internet. That so called 'religious'group, the Westboro Baptist church, have been at it again, stirring up the public by expressing their obscene personal views to music. Shirley Phelps - Roper is a vile and dangerous woman, who should at least be committed for mental health reasons. These Americans are allowed to go around spreading hatred due to the 5th amendment covering free speech. The only way people are able to stop them is by Private litigation and even then when they lose a case and have to pay costs of around 750,000 pounds they still get to carry on. In England things would be different, what do you think would happen if someone released a track called 'kill all the fags' or 'hang a jew' is beyond belief that a power such as the American Government can let this behaviour carry on...or are they all secret 'fag bashers'?

Today on a Tuesday early morning..I am really really angry.
For an extremely vile use of manipulation watch the last 30 seconds of the clip if you really can't face anymore... - Watch more free videos
