2005 Style Post # 1

I got a good bit of spam this morning. Forsooth:

"Hello I am Anderson.D Clinton i am in Iraq with the US Soldier i need your help to evacuate $5,000,000.( five million).contact me via email:"

Maybe it's Ice Cube. Anyway. I realised that seeing that email was the first I'd heard of the fabled "Iraq" in a yonk or three. It's all Afghanistan Afghanistan Afghanistan these days. Anyway, its still fuckery central over there. Power plants blowing up,  pilgrims blowing up, and the Americans plan to be there for at least another decade. "There are going to be incidents that occur here," said US Gen. Ray Odierno. "There is a level of violence and a level of terrorism here that's going to occur."

An nescis, mi fili, quantilla sapientia mundus regatur?

Sometimes you can't move for insanity. Young Jeezy, who's been making sneak-diss tracks about Maybach Music and Aston Martin Music author Rick Ross lately, just dropped a song called Porche Music - "typea shit that makes you think you're in a Rolls Royce". Wouldn't that be Rolls Royce Music?

Elsewhere in the Land Of Nod, talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger posted an apology to her website for saying The Dreaded N Word a whole bunch of times during a conversation with a  caller the other day. “Black guys say it all the time,” said Schlessinger during the show, when the woman on the other line raised her objections.  "Oh, then I guess you don’t watch HBO or listen to any black comedians.”


Yes it does.

And this:


Only just though. Hey baby, shall we go see Scott Pilgrim?


After a nice little rest, I am back in London with a pink pack of eyeballs on my case. That shit looked nice on IE, but fucked up Mozilla. I don't know what it was doing to Macs. So he will live to the right. Read a bunch of Hilaire Belloc's The History Of England Vol XI, From The First Invasion By The Romans To The Ascension Of King George The Fifth on the train. I now realise that we are living in an oligarchy. Well, a strange, new fangled sort of oligarchy masked as a democracy. With a bit of a monarchy. But it is an oligarchy, nonetheless.

This book was published in 1915, and, interestingly, predicted that Russia would do what America has. The author is also in favour of true aristocracy, and I can see his point.
