I used to read NME online nearly every day for a couple of years, but it’s just gettign too boring to care about anymore. Why must they keep reporting on Madonna, just because she got herself seeded by Guy Ritchie? Her new album is barely worth mentioning based off the singles I’ve heard. Is nothing going on there anymore? Where’s the rumors on SFA’s “Text Messaging is Ruining the Pub Quiz as We Know It”? What’s Hefner doing? Hasn’t the Arab Strap released a new album? What kind of cereal does the Beta Band like? It spooks me to see writers actually get worked up about Blink 182 and Slipknot touring there. Ugh! See! Globalization is Evil!
I just cannot say whether Jesse Ventura of Minnesota is a good governor, but he is kinda funny. I just read his rant on NPR.org. It certainly would have been funnier if he named names and more incidents. It also would have been better if he mentioned things that the media deliberately neglects reporting, like Dubya Bush skipping part of his service in the Air National Guard during Vietnam or glossing over the current protests against the World Bank in Prague. I heard on the radio that 400 people were arrested, but they were all violent anarchists and foreigners, so it was okay. 400 people? How many violent anarchists do you know? Not many, and almost certainly they are not in Prague. And if this is the World Bank, why is it that “foreigners” should mind their own business, to stay home and not to protest? CNN is reporting these protests as “anticapitalist”! Since when do monopolies acting in collusion constitute capitalism? Listen to the way that the news is reported. Listen to which words are used, and how sentences are constructed. They are written that way on purpose.
The only other tiny bit of news I’ve heard on the World Bank is about Bono of U2 whoring himself out (what else can he do?) trying to give the World Bank a “hip and young” view (since when has Bono been either?) saying that the president of the IMF is his Elvis. His cause is having the poorest nations in the world having their debt forgiven, but the ’80s and Live Aid are long gone. This is the Evil Empire.
I must confess…. i have been outcast yet again. A week and a half ago, i signed up to a webring, to let more people know that the site exists, and when it’s updated, but this site has not appeared on the list once. They have not even told me that i’ve been rejected. My guess is because I haven’t shelled out $70 bucks to get my own domain name, and have my own server. I feel so self-conscious. Boo-hoo… it reminds me of back in the ’80s when no one would talk to me because i didn’t wear Polo shirts and Guess jeans. Oh, the horror… sniff. I’m fighting back tears now. Maybe i should deliberate on whether the Softies or Marine Research is cuter, or mock Pitchfork, or write endless blogs of “Hey! I’m online! How about that?!”
To hell about that… how about that T-REX?!?!?!?!? Telegram Sam! He’s my main man! Wooooooo!!!!!!!!!!
