Where The Hell Did This Come From?!

30 April, 2009


I’ve never heard of Orianthi but apparently she was Crossroads 07 (?) and is good at the guitar. I mean good, too, not like some female artists who learn the pentatonics and then play blues standards and wear hot cloths…

Anyway, this makes me actually want to listen to fusion…

Spawn, Torso and Cartoons…

Awesome. This is an awesome, honest and direct interview that IESB.net did with Todd McFarlane (Creator of Spawn) at the Premier of Wolverine. Worth a view for sure:

Liam seems to be mad at Noel for his comment that the next album will take 5 years to release…

openquoteJust landed in Peru, my kinda people, see you all tomorrow…

It won’t be a 5 year break if I’ve got anything to do with it, thanks for the support..openquote

openquoteWhat to tell…? Nothing really. Flying to Peru today. I’ve never been. Have you? What’s it like? Are there Irish bars? Surely there must be?openquote

Its funny because its true…

That’s Kind of Cool…

Or cute, but I don’t like to throw that word around…

And Why Aren’t They Like This Here?

If I could have looked at a hot chick instead of Ronald Fucking McDonald when I was little then I would have…

Dude, We Know…

And its disturbing, but what are you gonna do? Nothing ever changes…

Noel on the rest of the band:

openquoteGem and Andy came late, but fuck me, it was like the cavalry riding over the hill. Gem’s like me, he works backwards from the band. Me and him, I guess more than Liam and Andy, would drive it along at all costs because we know how to do it; we know how to find drummers when we need one, we know how to rehearse the band. Liam… He’s constantly thinking about what shoes to buy. Or developing new techniques of how to balance that f***ing tambourine on his head. Great, off you go.

Andy? Don’t know. I think he sees himself as a bit of a Bill Wyman character. Sometimes I look at him onstage and think, He’s actually doing less than Duffy does. If I didn’t actually hear a sound coming out of the bass, I’d think that one of Kraftwerk had put one of their robots there. Is he actually moving? I’ll walk across the stage to him and he’ll go, What a gig! F***ing hell, man, you need a rocket up your arse.openquote

Oh Yeah…

Here’s a video of Policemen in Denmark stopping bicyclists, hugging them and then giving them a helmet. Hmm, positive reinforcement actually working? No way…

openquoteNow, a frightening thing happened to me last week. I went into the HMV in Selfridges – I could spend 2 hours in there just looking at records – only to be told by one of the staff that they don’t sell CDs anymore!! A fuckin’ outrage.

“It’s the future”, said the kid.
“Fuck the future”, said I.

IT. IS. THE. END. OF. THE. WORLD.

So what happens now then? Do I actually have to buy a bastard computer to buy music? Where is it all gonna end? In all serious though, it’s very sad. I may have to move to Japan!openquote

Wow…

A teenager’s parents got him a Nintendo DS and this is what happened when he opened it…

This makes me afraid to buy anything from anywhere ever again…

closequoteWhen he opened it, he was pulling the seal off, my sister-in-law carries a pocket knife and she opened it and that’s when he pulled it out and it was Chinese newspaper and a bunch of rocks,” she explained.

The troubling discovery prompted the Florida woman to contact the local Wal-Mart where she bought the curious box and complain, but reportedly workers there told her it wasn’t their problem and that she should contact Nintendo instead. Of course, Nintendo told her roughly the same thing, leaving mother and son with a $138 box of rocks.


Amazingly enough, however, Wal-Mart soon caved after learning that the same box of rocks had been previously returned by another disgruntled customer. How exactly it made it back onto store shelves remains a mystery, but for her troubles, Wykle was given a full refund and a $20 gift card.

openquoteBillboard: Pirate Bay spokesman Peter Sunde has claimed that what the site does isn’t demonstrably different from what Google does. What’s your view on that?

Oliver: What they do is dramatically different to Google. Their operation is deliberately set up to facilitate copyright infringement. If you were to search for Coldplay on Google, you’d get a wide variety of results including information about the band, news on upcoming tours and so on. On Pirate Bay, you’d just get a list of links to Coldplay albums. If Google links to infringing material, then they’ll receive a notice from us to remove that, and they will respond. Pirate Bay makes fun of copyright owners when they’re sent notices.openquote

Those dudes are going jail. Jail! For a year! That fucking sucks, a lot. I’m all for justice and all that, but what they do/did is hardly anything insanely criminal. Its not like they’re the ones on the assembly line stealing the movies/music/software and posting it…

A Year!

Noel discussing his childhood/father:

openquoteHe was violent towards me mam and me but he was no more violent than than my mates dad’s.

With the strikes and the Winter of Discontent, they were fucking bleak times and when times are hard, who are you going to kick if you haven’t got a dog?

But I bear no malice towards him, I feel really sorry for him.openquote

What A Dumbass…

Some dumbass cop in Britain wrote an awesomely idiotic message about G20 protesters for his facebook status…


The police officer’s profile page on social networking site Facebook contained a message apparently written by Pc Ward at 2017 BST on 1 April.
It stated: “Rob Ward can’t wait to bash some long haired hippys up @ the G20.”

Twenty minutes later another Facebook user posted a reply that said: “Dats bad but good in da same way lol

Awesome…

Graham Coxon’s solo career is… cool… i guess… I definitely think that, much like Lennon and McCartney, he was best teamed with someone like Damon Albarn. I have two of his albums and I listen to them if I feel like I need straightforward rocknroll or something but they’re not my favorites. That is until now. I now know that Graham and I share a mutual infatuation for the girl that he wrote this song about (hint – she was in A Knight’s Tale). After seeing her picture on the internet. And, that is cool.

Absolutely true and hilarious:


openquoteRemember when we were kids and the heroes of high school movies were cool? Remember how Ferris Bueller was funny and smart and had a hot girlfriend and everyone liked him, and Marty McFly beat up bullies and shredded on guitar? Now all kids have to look up to are pussy emo vampires, underground MMA fighters with armband tats, and awkward, hateful nerds who make lame jokes and reference movies that came out before they were born. And when did all the guys become passive twats and all the girls desperate sluts? I swear to God, one of these days I’m gonna drive down to Fox and wedgie everyone who walks in the building. Soon as I find my pants.openquote

About halfway through Noel gets classy… you’ll see why…

This. Is. So. True.

Thank you, College Humor, for making this video. You have now joined the ranks of Family Guy in making fun of douchy college guys who get girls because they learned the first two parts of Lover Lay Down and Time of Your Life.

Wow…

Someone hot, intelligent and they just so happen to be Christian (how can this combination be possible?):

openquoteMost people seeking to condemn gay people point to the Book of Leviticus, where we read that men lying with men is an abomination. However, we rarely hear of other verses found in the book of Leviticus that are equally challenging. For example, Leviticus also tells us that eating shrimp and lobster is an abomination. And that a person should not wear material woven of two kinds of material—an impossible mandate for a pageant contestant!

In Paul’s letter to the community in Corinth we read, ‘For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church….’ And yet these words have not prevented Christian denominations from ordaining women, such as myself. Sadly, the Bible has been used to further prejudice throughout history. We have used it to permit ourselves to enslave people; to conquer and kill; and to denigrate the earth.openquote

Full Article here…

So, basically, this is what all Christians need to do. Actually, intelligently read the bible and figure things out for themselves. I honestly don’t care for most Christian/Conervative thinking, but if they all though like this than it would be an enormously different world.
