Woeful Windies - WTF? We nearly lost! Go Lucas!
Shane Bond – The true lord and saviour. If any one takes the piss out of him I'll burn down an embassy.
So I've been thinking about this whole South Park and the bloody mary issue. At first I thought why the fuss about a drink? But then the penny dropped, it is Virgin in a Condom Pt II but without Graeme Capill causing a fuss. Sounds like South Park is back to its best.
He's been pretty quiet lately has Mr Capill. Maybe his jaw is still sore. NE ways back 2 South Park – 'Oh my god look, censorship coming straight for us!' Pass the sanitary pad, I say, so I can shove it down your pious throat.
I applaud TV 4 for being forward this whole bloody issue to our screens early.
It's the whole Voltaire thing here really – those who don't want the bloody mary show to screen can say what they like and I'm cool with that. They should not watch it. Its when some one demands the removal of the show from the program we get irked – cos that's not free speech, that's censorship. (Like wise don't buy the paper if it's cartoon offends)
I know all this has sprung up in light of Mohammed getting himself in the papers and so there's a story here that the MSM et al is keen on - I'm actually surprised I haven't seen that guy from the Soc iety For Promotion Of Community Standards that tries to ban every filthy movie that comes town chiming in. He may have. I'm chiming it and that too is free speech …
Things we have Pulp Fiction to thank for:
Making Mayonnaise/Aololi become very popular as a bar snack
We can use cool lines like "are we cool?" and "Zed's dead, baby; Zed's dead!"
The resurrection of John Travolta (because without Swordfish we may never have seen Halle's Comets)
We all understand the metric system a little better. Royale with Cheese?
The countless lives saved through giving a shot of adrenaline through someone's sternum which has been carefully defined using a magic marker to create a magic mark.
When your priest mentions Ezekiel 25:17, you know exactly what he means:
Things we have Pulp Fiction to
Samuel L Jackson turning up as Mace Windu in Star Wars.
Whatever happened to Pacifier?
Whatever happened to John Hawkesby?
Whatever happened to Big Ted?
Whatever happened to Debbie who did Dallas?
Whatever happened to Charles who was in Charge?
Whatever happened to your money for nothing and your chicks for free?
Well, while one night out wearing a dress, Lee Tamahori, of Once Were Warriors directorial, fame has been caught doing a George Micheal of sorts on the Santa Monica Boulevard. I guess we now know why he did the xXx movie sequel!
So like this is probably a you-had-to-be-there story but whatever....
I went to the music store the other day to get me some strings for my faithful Takamine guitar. I walk in and say to the hippy looking dude 'Hey dude, gimme some Martin Strings , low gauge please
'Sure dude, you want bronze or phosphorous?
Bluffing I say, 'I think I'll stick with the phosphorous, they give a rich tone
Hippy enthusiastically replies, 'Oh yeah man that's soooo true, these ones are great for the mids, you get great levels man!!!!!
The Jerry Garcia look-a-like seemed to think I know what I'm talking about and continues with an endless discourse about sonic principles and tonal qualities or something. I figured he'd smoked at least a kilo for lunch so I interupt.
'Ah dude, I have no idea what you're talking about
