then I'll MAKE it my party...

Topic: Hurtling to Obscurity

Blegh. I made my own London Bloggers blog. Now I'm going to vote one off each day till at long last after a weary battle, it's me, Saltation and Unlucky Man battling to the death at dawn with razor sharpened toothbrushes, graoning and bleeding over the haplessly strewn corpse of Random Acts of Reality.

So there.

Watch your goolies, lads. I could blog below the belt. But in a fluffy way.

Yesterday's Scores~ UnluckyMan: 7/10, Sal: 0/10, Reynolds: 7/10, Sarsp: 3/10. Two people not really trying! Suddent death: London Metblogs, for its photos of Soho Square.

Best Blo'te of the Day So Far: Feeling Listless
"Will it really have power to sway the voting habits of a country?
What is startling for me is how little Moore has changed the way he presents the story. Although I missed the original release of Roger and Me (I was reading about robots in disguise at the time), for some reason I caught all of TV Nation when it turned up on BBC Two and that took me into my university years. Considering the controversy, it's interesting to note how close the new film is to the short ten minutes stories which appeared on television and his previous work.
Throughout, there is still the mix of old tv footage, stunts and illustrative contemporary interviews. The proportions of each have been reduced and increased depending upon the story being told but it is very much Moore's style and just as distinctive as latter day Woody Allen."
"I saw the film at a Saturday 3:45 showing and it was full. Many journalists and writer who have been to see the film with the public to see their reaction have talked about the heckling and the applause. At my showing the only time anything happened was when a clip of Britney Spears appeared in which she was asked about the Iraq war From out of the darkness deep male voice shouted: "Whore!" He was utterly silent through everything else ..."

Did you get rid of the RSS feed? That's how bloglines updates. It doesn't need your permission, it just reads your feed. Man. :o)

I liked the movie, F 9/11, but it was so much propaganda, and some bizarre barely connected hints, with nothing to back it up. But where he talked about the war, and what it means to so many people, that's when the movie won me over. I haven't seen that much war coverage on the news, much less anywhere else.

I didn't ever set up RSS! At least, I'm pretty sure I didn't. I've got Atom now though. *confused* I'm just a blog-n00b :D

In re: F-9/11's propaganda. If you really want to get a load of propaganda, watch FOX news here in the states. It's owned by Rupert Murdoch, with whom I know you Brits are familiar. He has a very clear agenda: Make a s h i tload of money. Since the party that best exemplifies that spirit is George Bush's, Murdock continues to have his network present their brand of propaganda.
The "news" we get every day through American outlets is riddled with propaganda, that's why we must turn to other countries to get get some semblance of factual reporting.
Moore may have taken a strong anti-Bush stance in F-9/11, but I hardly blame him. He's just trying to even things up.

Just read about this on Alterman's Report.
Thought that ya'll might be interested.

I concur with the above assessment of F911.

I just wish that we could go ahead and have the election. It absolutely galls me that we may have to put up with ANOTHER 4 years of 'W'. =(

The new Big Brother is running now here in The States.....looks as though it is gonna stink as badly as it's predecessors.

help help i am being sucked into a big brother thinggggg....
hey thanks for the implied compliment, vanessa. i assume that means you're not feeling well. heh.

i seized upon this post with a joyous cry and intent to comment anyway when i scrolled down and saw the picture of the turnoff for havering-atte-bower. that's THE best (motor)bike road near london (if you take the second, tiny, turn-off), and it then leads on to all sorts of lovely little twisties that lead you up into olden essex via unpopulated B roads. AND you get to motor past a road sign announcing in montypythonesque "letters 10 foot high"
"Secret Nuclear Bunker. This way ->"
It's beside a roundabout; i nearly put myself through a hedge the first time i saw it.

PS I am not quite back on deck again, blog-wise, but am upright and tottering in the direction of deck.

Oooh, I love Olden Essex. And a secret nuclear bunker! That sounds like everything I hoped Maldon would be and was disappointed by. I'm not sure I can face the horror of another Romford traffic nightmare to get there, though.

And yes, it was a compliment! Welcome back to the land of the limping.
