Live Earth? Not for long

Boy, nothing says "I want to stop global warming" like setting up concerts all over the world and encouraging millions of people to drive or fly to them, not to mention the gazillions of kilowatts of electricity being used to light up and power the concerts. And let's not forget the gas that's being used to truck in the beer that is being sold for $7 a cup and truck out the boke, piss, and shit.

I suppose "Live Earth: Let's Stay Home And Listen To Music" just doesn't have the same kind of ring to it.

Al Gore is really, really on my list, the cunt.

I was watching the tennis. Was it on at the same time? It's always the case that the leader of a cult, I mean movement, has certain dispensations and allowances. Like many wives/concubines (if celibacy is preached), a cordon bleu diet (for macrobiotic krisnas etc), and so on. So Algae can have a carbon footprint as big as he likes. He'll probably buy the entire carbon credits of a small country like Bhutan in order to allow him fart methane throughout the developed world.

I think this sums it up better than I could.

"But another gigantic concert? Really? Two years after Live8; a week after that Diana cobblers? Madonna again? Kanye West again? Duran Duran again? These days, holding a global concert, with more than 50 artists playing in eight different countries, broadcast to a worldwide audience of billions, is quite a low-profile thing to do. It’s a bit like pubic waxing – 20 years ago, it would have been a bit of a conversation starter. But now, everyone’s doing it."

I love you Fatty, you speak the truth.

If the National Socialists want some mainstream attention again, they should have a few international concerts.

Gone a bit Tory have we?

Conan -- Oh my God, you're right: It is a cult. You know what's really funny? I was looking at Technorati, and this post of mine ended up on a conglomo web site that supports Gore for president. I guess that's what happens when you use filters to search for Gore being mentioned, but don't use filters to see if "cunt" is mentioned in the same post.

Lord Milky -- I blame that slack-faced cunt Geldof.

Savannah -- I find it far more entertaining when I only have to listen to musicians sing, and not talk. Excellent call on the CDs.

TLC -- "I love you Fatty, you speak the truth."

And yet others revile me for it. It seems that people either love me or hate me.

Lord Milky -- "If the National Socialists want some mainstream attention again, they should have a few international concerts."

Or a fake blog where they can pretend that they're nice people.

Footie -- "What Old Knudsen said."

Yes, "Old Knudsen" always has a lot to say, unfortunately the faker never seems to be able to say it in their real persona.

Devin -- "Knudsen,
Gone a bit Tory have we?
"

That particular "Old Knudsen" is far worse than the real Old Knudsen, scarily enough.

This is Gimme's Common Law, right?

I'm not from NI (bloody Yank, here), but the Spouse Sparrow is. He's completely ruined me for language, so he has. I have this awful, perky, California/Valley Girl accent, but I go around saying things like "I think I'm gonna cark it," and "Wise the bap, wee doll," because I forget I'm talking to Americans, and they can't understand a word of it. If I progress on to greeting people with "What about ye!" I will know it is time to top myself.

Boke, bowk or boak? I've read it spelled all three ways, and although it's pronounced the same, I like to have things nice and tidy in my mind while I'm parking the cat all over the bathroom floor.

Footie -- "Boke, bowk or boak? I've read it spelled all three ways, and although it's pronounced the same,"

I believe it's "boke" for Northern Ireland, "boak" for Scotland/NI, and "bowk" for the illiterate.

"I like to have things nice and tidy in my mind while I'm parking the cat all over the bathroom floor."

That's lovely; I'll just go and not eat my dinner now.
