Illness

Illness is a crappy thing.
I’m sure you don’t want to know the exact details, but don’t expect any blog posts for a few days.
I’m not very well.
Food poisoning, possibly? That’s the only explaination I can think of.

Drink me!

It’s about that time of year again.
Nevermind the switching on the town christmas lights, the coming of cold weather and the savage hunt to find the hat and gloves that have invariably been pushed as far to the back of the cupboard as possible.
You can tell because it’s time for Starbucks to break out their red, snowflake emblazened cups and fill them with Coffee and a substance that, although I have very little idea of what it is, is damn addictive.
Albeit rather sickly, it is still highly addictive.

I am of course talking about the infamous ‘Eggnog Latte’
It’s a phenomenon like the ‘Strawberries & Cream’ drink that they used to bundle out every summer, before it became a permanent menu item, nobody knows where it comes from, but when it’s time, it comes. Almost as if it just knows.
Yum.

David Cameron a fan?

From Morrissey-Solo.com

An anonymous person writes:
Whilst reading the free MEN light newpaper this Thursday i was shocked and ashamed to discover that David Cameron (possibly the next Tory leader) is a self proclaimed Smiths Fan.

The paper was asking both David Cameron and David Davis what they knew about Manchester and where they have been. Cameron stated that he had been to Salford, so he could go and pose outside Salford Lads club!

Can this be true? Or just more political propoganda?
It has to be said though, Cameron has been putting himself out there as the ‘younger, hipper’ candidate, compared to his rival that dinosaur David Davis.

Here are some other examples;

While being interviewed on London’s community radio station, Life FM, Cameron was urged to “put a shout out” to listeners, the Old Etonian hesitated for a moment before replying: “This is a great project, this is a great community, keep backing it, keep it real”.

Mr Cameron – the self-styled “change candidate” – admitted, during quickfire questions on BBC Radio 4′s Woman’s Hour, that he liked “boxers”.

Also, after some Google-digging, I have found that Mr Cameron is a company director of hip bar chain, Tiger Tiger, watering hole of the stars and uber-rich. (Which also has recently opened a branch here in Cardiff)

Disclaimer:
I would like to say that, no matter how ‘young, hip and cool’ David Cameron is, or is trying to portray himself, I still do not condone the Conservative party or any of their policies. In fact, the ideals of the Tory party are the complete opposite from my own. I’m a Liberal Democrat. In case you didn’t already know.

Ringleader of the tormentors

The title of the new Morrissey album, to be released in 2006 and the tracklisting has been released.

True-to-you.net, website of the great Morrissey fanzine are reporting that it is to be called ‘Ringleader of the tormentors’. Usually, if True-to-you say it, then it is so. Plus, both .com and .co.uk domains for the title have been registered by Sanctuary Group, Morrissey’s record company.

The tracklisting is also apparently to be as follows;

1. “I Will See You In Far-off Places”
2. “Dear God Please Help Me”
3. “You Have Killed Me”
4. “The Youngest Was The Most Loved”
5. “In The Future When All’s Well”
6. “The Father Who Must Be Killed”
7. “Life Is A Pigsty”
8. “I’ll Never Be Anybody’s Hero Now”
9. “On The Streets I Ran”
10. “To Me You Are A Work Of Art”
11. “I Just Want To See The Boy Happy”
12. “At Last I Am Born”

I just cannot wait, after the masterpiece that was ‘You are the quarry’, this new record will hopefully be similarly enthralling.

It’s just basic irony

So, it’s looking more and more like the occupying force is Iraq is becoming like the dictatorship that they overthew. How ironic.

US troops used white phosphorus as a weapon in last year’s offensive in the Iraqi city of Falluja, the US has said.

So, the ‘coalition of the willing’ invade a country to rid them of a regime that apparently has, and is willing to use chemical weapons.
How do they do it?
Chemical Weapons.

The coalition invade a country to rid them of a regime that tortures its subjects.
How do they do it?
Torturing subjects.

As Bill Hicks’ would say, “It’s real basic irony, but you can still get a hoot”
