A bit of a serious one today...Fitna is the word being uttered today from hushed political and Islamist's also a word which is the title of a short but horrifying film about extreme Islamism which has been created by Dutch politician Geert Wilders.
The film juxstaposes visions of extreme terrorism with highlighted extracts from the Quran. The idea of the film is that extremeist Islam has had it's 15 minutes of fame and now it's time for it to be outlawed. How successful this film is to put across that point of view to the viewer is up to them. Personally at times I found the 17 minute film racist and disturbing on the part of the Dutch politician but then you see image on image of dead americans, dead jews, dead gays, dead women and it tends to turn your thoughts to anger.
The film is not easy at all to watch but i think it needs to be seen. I was going to post the film on the blog here but threats and violent acts have already been made against people supporting or promoting the film.
Please therefore click on the link (or copy and paste it into your browser header) if you would like to see's a very sad world that we have to survive in....


One thing we have to remember is that 99% of Islamists are beautiful and peaceful people, please don't lose that thought.

lots of love and peace x

lets face the music and dance....

well easter comes and goes, one God gets crucified and resurrected whilst another in another culture gets's very hard to keep up with the coming and going of Gods you know....wouldn't it be great to be so multi cultured that you could celebrate something every day and never have to work even though you would get paid as they are official holidays! do realise that if you looked at our calendar you could actually do this, apart from March..that seems to be lacking in any sort of God days but does have the most German national hoilidays I believe...oh well, we British don't even get a day off for St George (good job too as it probably would be taken over by the BNP as a national fascist day!) so the likelihood of being allowed to have any more fun is about...nil !

What does everyone know then?...I am lacking in information today, nobody has imparted anything...I have not come across anything salacious although I have heard something about a Radio 1 DJ, apacket of cheese straws and a well known bald musician...but the liable judges would be on to me straight away :(

I'm sat here thinking of where to go on holiday and it's a real quandry... I don't have my little Lisa this year as she has been whisked away by a knight in shining armour, my other half Mike doesn't like the sun and heat so I can't go to my usual haunts (even though I'm sure he would have a ball) and so that is the point I have i go by myself and look like billy no mates for two weeks? I know one thing, I have to have a holiday where I can escape from this shit hole of a country...but what to do, what to do....answers in the comments box at the end of todays blog please...

'Brick Lane' (trailer above) is a beautiful film...I watched it yesterday evening and was spellbound by the wonderful acting of the main protagonists, it's quite a sad story but a daring and contemporary one as regards to Indian culture and beliefs. The cinematography in the films overture is beautiful, showing a life of peace happiness and beauty in the Indian countryside which is counterbalanced by the grime and grim surroundings of Brick Lane later in the film. I don't really want to talk about the plot as that is something that needs to be explored and discovered and then discussed by yourselves. It really is a stunner of a film and I'm so glad that Film 4 keep finding and financing the films that it does. Go See it...

Muse - Haarp.....the's live, it's loud and it's fucking amazing.....nuff said...go buy :)

one eye jack's still a peepin'...

First thing i want to say is ...Fuck you Alistair Darling and your fucking budget...I now nominate you cunt of the year and I really don't think anything will top it. Why the anger?...I'll tell you why, it's always the same people that get help in this country, married couples, children and older people...oh..and the rich...yet again there is nothing to help the single people of this country or those in same sex relationships. Labour has lost my vote, the party is now just another branch of the Conservative Party and if someone paid me 5000 pounds to leave the country I would gladly do so!

I also feel very cultured today as I have bought a ticket to a very posh you might think...but wait, it's a freaky mind fuck opera which has been based on David Lynch's masterpiece 'Lost Highway''s being produced by the English National Opera and the production promises audio visuals, electronic treatments and spatially confusing utterly thrilling, can't wait to get to The Young Vic to see it on April 7th...the great news is it's only 30 pounds per ticket :)

The Editors....watching All Sparks

hi kids...Doesn't two weeks fly when you are having fun...took a little holiday but back now and raring not to go!

We went off to see 'The Editors' a few days ago at the wondrous Alexandra Palace in Londinium...what a gig....a very cool affair indeed!
The train down was fine and we landed at St Pancras International Sattion/Airport in the early evening...You could see the tension and excitement in Little Lisa's eyes as we boarded the tube towards Wood Green (on the piccadilly line, 7 stops) and travelled towards our destination.
Once out of the tube we had the thrill of taking a free shuttle bus up to the Palace...I had considered walking when I first saw my multimap print out of our route...but no fucker tells you that the route is just one totally huge hill...and so I'm glad we didn't...we were thrown onto the bus and herded upstairs where I sat next to a lovely girl who smiled at me knowingly thinking 'he's so excited'...Lisa sat up the fron a few seats forward. One big hill later and we arrived at the Palace...what an awesome building it is, harking back to times gone by and the thing that i detest most in this world, royalty. Great venue though...gigantically huge...we found our way into the great hall after a running buffet of Hot dog and spring roll (at very reasonable prices I must add) and stood and waited for the first band to appear...

Friends like these...mobius band

The mobius Band are an ultra hip ensemble who threw us into a magical world of elctro indie rock....excellent display of musicianship and showmanship....their time with us was too short...i should really like to partake of musical exposure with them once more.

Sons and Daughters - Guilt complex

Sons and Daughters took to the stage next and although not as good as the mobius band they were enjoyable for a while...I just kept getting taken back to the sound of The Revillos from my new wave days...even close enough to say that Adele could be the bastard daughter of Fay from The Revillos :)
They are from Glasgow, they were produced by Brett from Suede, they are a festival band, watch them fly!

Then onto the main set...the lights lowered, the screams resounded around the cavernous auditorium, the stage lights lit up wildly and there was Tom playing his keyboards right in front of us...woo hoo!

An End Has a Start - The Editors

what then took place was a 75 minute power walk through the hits of one of the most musically brilliant bands around at the moment...the sound was spot on, everyone was having fun, Tom did his funny little microphone movements (to lisas delight)

Munich - The editors

...we all did the bouncy bouncy (well, because i is so tall I just nodded my head up and down to look like I was bouncing!)...singing, singing, singing, wanting more...a great great show...the encore came upon us and two thirds the way thyrough the sound was pulled...they had gone over the 10.30pm limit as set by the local council and so they just pulled the plug!..that was quite shocking but the band and the crowd took it mostly in good humour...after an excellent gig like that you couldn't help but just to smile...

All Sparks - The Editors
