Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Prelude)

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are one of the best bands I think I've ever seen live!

Absolutely stunning show - full of energy, enthusiasm and power.

Really want to make sure I do a write-up of the day tomorrow. Lots of good stuff in the last 48 hours.

Now I must get something to eat, and maybe shower...

Meixco To Build Fence To Stop American College Kids Going On Drinking Sprees! Or something...

I've often joked about building a fence around America - largely for different reasons to most (aka - keep the Americans in and away from invading the rest of the world) but have also spoken about (and used in fiction) the idea of a future American government barricading itself in to greater control its citizens.

Well, it's not exactly 'to greater control its citizens' (after all they have all the wiretapping, the 'War of Elusive but Handy Terror' and false media for that at present)  but the Senate has now approved the building of a 370 mile triple-layed 'border fence' across the Mexican border.

Oh Lordi... Part II

YAY!

Finland (meaning Lordi!) made it through to Saturdays Final of the Eurovision Song Contest!

They're currently 16-1 to win it I believe. I actually think they have a chance as their inclusion seems to have prompted a lot more interest this year...hehe

Surprised to see that Belgium and Poland didn't get through.

"Lucky that my breasts are small and humble" - Shakira, "Whenever, Wherever"

Oh Shakira, not only are your videos great to watch but some of your lyrics are... undescribable.

Ahem :p
