I have been watching the Clinton/Obama web war and the whole issue that was set up around Jeremia Wright with a mix of fascination and disgust – and read Michael Moore’s latest (actually: the first one during the primaries) intervention with some sense of relief. I hope America will be able to rid itself from Republican rule, and I couldn’t agree more:
I know some of you will say, ‘Mike, what have the Democrats done to deserve our vote?’ That’s a damn good question. In November of ’06, the country loudly sent a message that we wanted the war to end. Yet the Democrats have done nothing. So why should we be so eager to line up happily behind them?
I’ll tell you why. Because I can’t stand one more friggin’ minute of this administration and the permanent, irreversible damage it has done to our people and to this world. I’m almost at the point where I don’t care if the Democrats don’t have a backbone or a kneebone or a thought in their dizzy little heads. Just as long as their name ain’t “Bush” and the word “Republican” is not beside theirs on the ballot, then that’s good enough for me.
I, like the majority of Americans, have been pummeled senseless for 8 long years. That’s why I will join millions of citizens and stagger into the voting booth come November, like a boxer in the 12th round, all bloodied and bruised with one eye swollen shut, looking for the only thing that matters — that big “D” on the ballot.
I hope the majority will go for the D on the ballot (but I am also afraid the elections might be rigged, and that the majority might not count in the end – is the UN thinking of sending some observers?).
But the question I keep hearing is… ‘can he win? Can he win in November?’ In the distance we hear the siren of the death train called the Straight Talk Express. We know it’s possible to hear the words “President McCain” on January 20th. We know there are still many Americans who will never vote for a black man. Hillary knows it, too. She’s counting on it.
Pennsylvania, the state that gave birth to this great country, has a chance to set things right. It has not had a moment to shine like this since 1787 when our Constitution was written there. In that Constitution, they wrote that a black man or woman was only “three fifths” human. On Tuesday, the good people of Pennsylvania have a chance for redemption.

I firmly believe that many citizens of the United States of America have been terribly traumatized by the Bush administration and their affiliates. This has left many individuals in a tragic state of paranoia, and one of its manifestations is the belief that Guantanamo is an ultimate necessity. One of these individuals is Phil. Meet Phil and his message:
KEEP GUANTANAMO OPEN!!! LETS KEEP THESE TERRORISTS THERE, AND KEEP GETTING THE INFO WE NEED TO PROTECT OUR COUNTRY!!!

I am happy to forward any mail if you’d like to reach out to him or get in touch. Don’t you worry, Phil. Every little thing is gonna be all right – once Obama/Clinton haven taken over, you won’t have to worry any longer about your country burning down other countries and being hated for that.

Who is going to write the novel covering the Microhoo story? It’s pure drama material!
_Microsoft makes a bid to buy Yahoo for $44.6 billion
_Yahoo rejects the bid: They want more
_Microsoft does f**k all to increase their bid – instead they’re attempting a hostile acquisition! Steve Ballmer is pissed! Their press release:
It is unfortunate that Yahoo! has not embraced our full and fair proposal to combine our companies. Based on conversations with stakeholders of both companies, we are confident that moving forward promptly to consummate a transaction is in the best interests of all parties.
We are offering shareholders superior value and the opportunity to participate in the upside of the combined company. The combination also offers an increasingly exciting set of solutions for consumers, publishers and advertisers while becoming better positioned to compete in the online services market.
A Microsoft-Yahoo! combination will create a more effective company that would provide greater value and service to our customers. Furthermore, the combination will create a more competitive marketplace by establishing a compelling number two competitor for Internet search and online advertising.
The Yahoo! response does not change our belief in the strategic and financial merits of our proposal. As we have said previously, Microsoft reserves the right to pursue all necessary steps to ensure that Yahoo!’s shareholders are provided with the opportunity to realize the value inherent in our proposal.
Shudder. That sounds awful, like playing poker against the superior chip leader. Yet think about a little novel, focusing in on two lower members of staff and Yahoo and Microsoft who over-identify with they companies… who’d be able to write it?

This Derren Brown is incredible! He inserts two huge flat needles into Robbie Williams’ arms while Robbie recites a nursery rhyme! Spoooky!
Three blind mice,
Three blind mice
See how they run,
See how they run!
They all ran after
The farmer’s wife
She cut off their tails
With a carving knife
Did you ever see
Such a sight in your life
As three blind mice?

Would you believe that somebody, by mere suggestion, could make you want something so badly that you’d even forget want you actually wanted? I have no idea just HOW Derren Brown does it, but he’s very good at it (Lenina pointed me to his shows). The example below features my fav Simon Pegg who created the wonderful SPACED series. Enjoy!
EDIT: I am getting hooked now, this is even better!

Ever since I designed the End Guantanamo! banner, the traffic on my blogged has reached a new low: It’s been continually growing over the past month, but yesterday it dropped behind the mark last achieved 20 days ago. Could the CIA or FBI be blocking or slowing down access my blog? Do you think that Network Neutrality is attainable in a world where torture camps are run by a country that claims to be bringing freedom to the world? Even if I am just paranoid – give some thought to it!
