New Coldplay Song is GOOD

Coldplay - Viva La Vida (Download this torrent)

One minute I held the key

Next the walls were closed on me

And I discovered that my castles stand

Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand



I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing

Roman Cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror my sword and shield

My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain

Once you go there was never, never an honest word

That was when I ruled the world

Fine, the Black Man Can Be On Top: Obama/Clinton 08

"She is tireless, she is smart. She is capable. And so obviously she'd be on anybody's short list to be a potential vice presidential candidate," said Obama, who inched closer to winning the nomination by routing Clinton in North Carolina and almost defeating her in Indiana on Tuesday.Some Democrats are saying Obama and Clinton would be a formidable team against Republican John McCain in the race to the November election.According to a CBS News/New York Times poll released last week, a majority of both Obama and Clinton voters say they would favor a so-called "Dream Ticket" involving both candidates. -Reuters
Yes, that's an inflammatory statement from a radical black bisexual woman who rejoices in all sexualities and laments the obvious statement liberal America has made to women. It's no wonder, the only people of note even vaguely still in favor of Clinton are women, we who wanted a chance too. A split ticket becomes our damn chance, not just you…

Steampunk

With feigned indifference I've noticed steampunk as a next big mainstream thing, seems the NY Times agrees. No, the NY Times does not = cultural death, why ever would you think that?

It's fascinating to see people of color involved in the retooling of historical eras, previously we weren't so transparent in the paradigm. Sure, there's some who might scoff and deign to call the subculture a natural extension of mainstream rejection e.g. goth/alt/metal/the pierced. When did this youth dismissive culture forget they were once young? Perhaps people get sick of asking for the same things, they see the rock remain a mountain instead of handfuls of sand. I see each expression as a tick tock on the clock of positive evolution.

Do you live in Josef Fritzl's world, or does he live in yours?

I've been captivated by the Fritzl case. I can reasonably say I've covered the majority of world history and happenings, and never heard something so very bad as this. Summing the story up:

Father molests girl from 11-18, then at 18 he fakes her joining cult and locks her in basement dungeon for 24 years, Father fathers 7 children with her, 3 of which he takes from the mother, his own daughter, at birth to raise upstairs with his wife who rejoices the children left on doorstep by long-lost daughter, 1 child dies at birth and Father incinerates, 3 others remain downstairs (currently aged 19, 18, and 5), dungeon is less than 6 ft high, and has no windows or access to outside world but has a tv. 2 weeks ago, the oldest under the stairs daughter fell ill and is taken by Father to hospital where rare blood disease is uncovered, doctors need to test mother so police post image of mother on local tv where children and mother see it downstairs. Upstairs and downstairs have been re…
