All that is glitterati is not gold

Artist unveils solid gold statue of drugged out skank model Kate Moss. British museum puts it on display. “We are not amused” fumes gossip columnist.

His sculpture of Moss said to be the largest gold statue to be made in the world since the time of Ancient Egypt.

Speaking about choosing the supermodel as a subject, Quinn said: “I thought the next thing to do would be to make a sculpture of the person who’s the ideal beauty of the moment.”

The 50kg statue will be displayed in the Nereid Gallery of the British Museum, alongside other statues such as Crouching Venus, a Hellenistic model of Venus surprised while bathing.

Quinn’s latest work, which shows Moss in a yoga pose, is part of a collection, entitled Statuephilia, by contemporary artists going on display at the British Museum.

It is the second time the London-born artist has used the model as his muse. He previously created Sphinx, a white-painted bronze sculpture of the fashion icon.

Quinn is also known for Self, a bust of his head made from eight pints of his own frozen blood.

But not everyone is in love with the idea ...

A new, gold statue of the overexposed model is the last straw for Celia Walden

Celebrity body parts, like brand logos, quickly start to grate. Elizabeth Hurley’s breasts, David Cameron’s Eton slick, Angelina Jolie’s lips, Hillary Clinton’s ever-gaping gob, Victoria Beckham’s alien sunglasses and her husband’s six-pack are as unavoidable and wearing as a stubborn pop song.

But nothing, nothing sands down my psyche more relentlessly than one little pinched visage, reproduced with a bulimic intensity by the media the world over: Kate Moss.

Go read the rest. I thought it was a decent claws extended full on catty ripping up.

I don’t see that much of Kate Moss. I don’t read gossip mags, I don’t read the fashion mags, and I don’t watch the kiddie channels like MTV where her face is likely to appear hawking some clothes or something. So it’s kind of rare for me to even see her picture ... and when I do, I notice she seems to be less drugged out and skinny looking, and might actually be rather noticeable. Attractive maybe even. But like I said, I’ve missed the whole Kate Kulture thing, though I can understand those who have simply overdosed on it.

Is she still involved with that pasty faced little greaser junky Petey Doherty? The guy who looks like a walking STD? Gak, I hope not.

You would have thought she could find a bikini to fit… (she doesn’t fit it, she overflows it)


You would have thought she could find a bikini to fit… designer Stella McCartney’s costume takes the strain
By Donna Mcconnell
Last updated at 3:28 PM on 28th August 2008

Stella McCartney revealed her wild side on holiday in Mallorca, in a brief leopard print bikini.

The usually well-covered designer, who made her name clothing the rich and famous, showed little of her usual reserve as she stripped off to enjoy the sun while on a family holiday.

But for a designer who made her name as the purveyor of high quality clothing, it seems she failed to get a bikini to adequately contain her.

Tight fit: Designer Stella McCartney’s bikini offers little coverage and her bust is threatening to spill out as she holidays in Mallorca

Stella’s teeny triangle bikini strained to contain her chest, and the black bikini bottoms appeared to be distinctly Brazilian in style as they bared plenty of bottom flesh.

And later Stella appeared to be struggling to maintain her dignity after she waded into the water, as her less than ample chest spilled out of the bikini top.

Despite the lack of coverage, the designer who is married to magazine publisher Alasdhair Willis, certainly looked stunning in her bikini, despite giving birth to her third child in January this year.

The couple have three children together, Miller, three, Bailey, 20 months and Beckett, eight months.

Swim queen: The usually reserved Stella wades into the waters in her Brazilian-style bikini which showed off plenty of bottom flesh

Stella and her family are holidaying in Majorca, and have been seen enjoying the sights, and a day out at the local aquarium.

The ardent supporter of animal rights recently showed the courage of her convictions, after threatening legal action when a leading fashion house featured a model wearing lingerie from her collection beneath a mink fur coat.

Stella - who refuses to use fur or leather in her own designs – is said to have hit the roof and threatened legal action after spotting one of her bras in the advert for Hockley, a fur boutique based in Mayfair.

Malfunction: The bikini finally failed to hold the fashion designer as she spilled out of the leopard print number on the beach

The offending ad appears in the latest issue of Vogue and shows a model in a black lace McCartney bra draped in a £6,450 full-length mink black and white ‘Atlas’ coat accessorised with a leather belt.

‘Stella went absolutely ballistic when she saw it,’ a source at her store in Mayfair told The Mail on Sunday.

‘I have never seen her so angry. She hit the roof and said that she planned to sue.’

US Election 2008: The joke is finally on Barack Obama.  (America. Can it be true at last?)

As reported in London paper.
Does this mean it’s now okay to tell jokes about this guy and NOT be a *gasp* racist?

Have you heard the one about the presidential candidate who was once so popular that comedians were frightened to make jokes about him?

By Tim Shipman in Washington
Last Updated: 9:04PM BST 09 Aug 2008

Barack Obama in London during his tour of Europe. Voters are tiring of the wall to wall coverage of his grand pronouncements Photo: GETTY IMAGES
The punchline is this: the more seriously he took himself, the more Barack Obama has become a laughing matter.

Only a month ago American comedians and satirists were complaining that they found it hard to get people to laugh at the first black presidential nominee. A New Yorker cover cartoon showing him as a Muslim extremist was roundly denounced.

But growing Obama fatigue among voters after his pseudo-presidential visit to Europe and the Middle East has unleashed a wave of satirical fire, mocking Mr Obama for his apparent belief that he has the election in the bag.

Last month Jon Stewart, host of the satirical news programme The Daily Show, had to tell his audience that they were allowed to laugh at Mr Obama after a joke fell flat.

But Mr Stewart made comedic hay during the Illinois Senator’s international trip, mocking his progress through the Holy Land, where he said the candidate stopped “in Bethlehem to see the manger where he was born.”

Late night comic Jimmy Kimmel also cracked a joke at Mr Obama’s expense: “They really love Barack Obama in Germany. He’s like a rock star over there. Impressive until you realise that David Hasselhoff is also like a rock star over there.”

The jokes are important because they increasingly draw on evidence that voters are tiring of Mr Obama’s elevated opinion of himself, the wall to wall coverage of his pronouncements, and the feeling that he should concentrate on voters back home.

A writer with one of the leading comedy shows in the US, who preferred not to be named because of continuing sensitivities about how far comedians should go from some network executives, said: “We had a hard time convincing people that Obama is funny for a long time. Our audiences seemed unsure whether to laugh at him. The first black president is not a gag. But that’s changing because he’s doing more stuff that’s easy to mock and people are more familiar with him.”

Too familiar, some say. A poll last week by Pew research found 48 percent of those questioned said they had been hearing too much about the Democratic presidential candidate recently, nearly double the figure for his Republican rival John McCain.

Mr Obama has provided rich fodder for comedians looking to prick his pomposity, predicting that people would look back at his nomination as the moment “when the rise of the oceans began to slow”.

He also told Congressmen that his campaign was “the moment . . . that the world is waiting for”.

The attitude was summed up by Dana Milbank, the Washington Post’s resident political humourist, who declared: “Barack Obama has long been his party’s presumptive nominee. Now he’s becoming its presumptuous nominee.”

Mr Letterman listed top ten signs that Barack Obama is overconfident, which included “Offered Bush 20 bucks for the ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner” and “Having head measured for Mount Rushmore.”

Mr Obama is also under fire for moving politically towards the centre ground, moderating positions he had once boasted were evidence of his unique appeal.
Jay Leno, of the long-running Tonight Show, said: “Barack Obama now says he’s open to offshore oil drilling. So, apparently, when he promised change, he was talking about his mind.”

BEST OBAMA JOKES
Craig Ferguson: “Barack Obama was in Germany” today, and “he did this speech and 100,000 people showed up. There were so many Germans shouting and screaming that France...surrendered just in case.”

Jimmy Kimmel: “They really love Barack Obama in Germany. He’s like a rock star over there. Impressive until you realize that David Hasselhoff is also like a rock star over there.”

David Letterman: Signs Barack Obama Is Overconfident.

Proposed bill to change Oklahoma to ‘Oklabama.’
Offered Bush 20 bucks for the ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner.

Asked guy at Staples, ‘Which chair will work best in an oval-shaped office?’
Having head measured for Mount Rushmore.

Offered McCain a job in gift shop at Obama Presidential Library.
Jay Leno: “Of course, Obama’s supporters got him his usual birthday gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”

Jay Leno: “Obama’s people are trying to portray McCain as cranky, and McCain is trying to portray Obama as arrogant, you see. And when Obama was asked what he thought about being called arrogant, well, he said he was ‘above having to answer that question.’”

Jay Leno: “See Barack Obama on the news? He’s becoming a workout fanatic. He’s at the gym, like, twice a day, sometimes three times a day at the gym, yeah, according to his staff. Well, he has to stay in shape to do those flip-flops.”

Jay Leno: “Barack Obama back from his big European tour. Did you see him in Europe? People were cheering him, holding up signs, blowing him kisses. And that was just the American media covering the story.”

racism over lost luggage.  (anyone else but this very spoiled cretin would serve jail time)

Here we go folks.  The ‘R’ word.  Or ‘ism’ you can take your pick.

I can’t help feeling that were the person a white one, they’d most likely be in jail.  This lady, and I use the term lightly, has had more breaks and more ppl leaning over backwards for her then I can count.  Of course, she isn’t alone in kid gloves treatment after bad behaviour.

Garbage gums here has civil rights and isn’t accountable for anything she does. She’s dark skinned & thus is entitled to a free pass. 

Naomi Campbell accused British Airways captain of racism over lost luggage
By Graham Tibbetts
Last Updated: 1:57PM BST 20/06/2008

Naomi Campbell flew into a rage and accused an airline captain of racism when he tried to explain that one of her bags had gone missing, a court heard today.
20 Jun 08: Naomi Campbell pleads guilty to assaulting a police officer after a row at Heathrow airport. ;

http://link.brightcove.com/services/link/bcpid1529569286/bctid1620576725

The model was caught up in the chaos of Terminal 5 at Heathrow airport when she was waiting to take off for Los Angeles.

After it became clear that Campbell’s bag was among a number that had failed to be loaded on to the British Airways flight Miles Sutherland, the captain, took the “unusual decision” of personally approaching her to explain the situation and apologise.

Uxbridge magistrates court, west London, heard that the model made no attempt to listen to Capt Sutherland and instead used her mobile phone, saying: “They have lost my f****** bags, get me another flight, get the press, get me my lawyer.”

She then shouted at Capt Sutherland: “I can’t believe you have lost my f****** bag. Bring me my f****** bags now.”


Melanie Parrish, prosecuting, said: “She instructed him to personally get off the aircraft and get her bag and show it to her.”

When the captain attempted to outline her options she retorted: “How dare you tell me what my options are? You are not leaving until you find my f****** bags.”

As the captain walked away Campbell shouted after him: “You are a racist. You wouldn’t be doing this if I was white.”

(No, he might not monkey face. Were you white he might have had you locked up at once)


The incident, which happened in April shortly after Terminal 5’s disastrous opening, led to the flight being delayed by almost an hour.

The court was told a cabin services director and a BA special operative trained to deal with difficult situations were called to the aircraft but had little success.

Miss Parrish said: “Miss Campbell was clearly upset and explained to them the reason why this was so awful for her was that she was contracted to wear a particular Yves Saint Laurent outfit on a US chat show and it was in the bag that hadn’t been loaded.”

She said that Campbell, who was sitting in First Class, again began to shout and swear and was told that her language was unacceptable and there were families and children on board.

Campbell, 38, continued shouting and swearing, yelling “F*** you, f*** you, Captain”, before the decision was taken that she would have to be removed from the flight.

When she refused to leave voluntarily three police officers arrived and were told: “F*** off, I have paid £5,000 for this. I have a right to be on this plane.”

As an officer, PC Eastick, attempted to grab her arm she “went berserk, thrashing her arms around uncontrollably and striking PC Eastick on the arm with her phone,” said Miss Parrish.

During a violent struggle Campbell thrust her right leg back and forward, hitting another officer.

(Now dat be ok doh because she have dem dar cibil right stuff ya’ll honkeys don’t got yet yaknowwhatImean if not axme and I splain it.)

Miss Parrish added: “At the time she was wearing formidable platform boots with stiletto-style heels.”

The only other passenger in First Class moved into the staff kitchen for his own safety, the court heard.

Campbell then spat on one of the officers and shouted at them: “It is because I am a black woman. You are all racists. I am going to sue you. I am going to f*** you.”

( Oh sure.  It’s ALWAYS race huh?  Heaven forbid it’s something to do with how they act or what they do. Oh no. It isn’t their doing. No. It’s Whitey!)

Her tirade continued later after she had left the aircraft when she claimed she was only being arrested because she was “black and famous”.

Campbell’s lawyer, Simon Nicholls, said she had not been drinking or looking for trouble.

“She has specifically told me to say she was genuinely apologetic to the police officers. I can’t say she was quite so sorry about British Airways but she is sorry she behaved in the way she did,” he said.

Campbell pleaded guilty to two counts of assaulting a police officer, one count of disorderly conduct likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress and using threatening, abusive words or behaviour to cabin crew.

The magistrates ordered a probation report to be carried out on Campbell before they decided on sentence later today.

They told the model that all sentencing options were open but that they had a community punishment in mind.

She could have been jailed for up to six months and/or fined up to £5,000 for each count of assaulting a constable.

Told ya so!

We are a nation of voyeurs, we are fascinated with people who are famous for being famous, criminals are our heroes, and being a prostitute is a great ticket to fame and fortune.

“Kristen" making an instant fortune

Just a day after the Spitzer scandal broke, the world learned the identity of his favorite prostitute. The “sex worker” of this “victim-less crime” has not been charged with anything. Far from it. imageAshley Dupre is making money faster than the banks can handle the deposits. Make hay while the sun shines, ho, because it may not last. OTOH, watch her win next season’s American Idol, or become a well compensated Talking Head for the news media, like Heidi Fleiss did, whenever they need an Insider’s View on the world of pimps and hookers. Wanna bet the news shows will go out of their way to run those kinds of stories just so they “need” her input?

imageShe made the cover of today’s NY post. Her simplistic dance mix song is selling so well she’s put up another one. And the price has tripled! The Post reports that FoxNews reports that she her tunes have been downloaded over a million times at 98 cents a pop. Rumors are rampant that a high dollar spread with Penthouse magazine are in the works. TV news shows say that she has been offered at least $100,000 by one of the gossip magazines to do an interview. She’ll be on Larry King before you know it ... which should be a hilarious interview to watch. This is exactly what I said would happen when her identity was revealed the other day. I would not be at all surprised if she suddenly becomes an actress and gets her own TV show, though pairing her as Charlie Sheen’s latest love interest on Two and a Half Men would seem ironically appropriate. And another strange news item ... talking head and former pimp Jason Itzler claims he recruited her and that she is “one of the best hookers ever”. Put that one on your resume Ashley, I’m sure you’ll go far.






What does this say about us as a culture? It is all just meaningless fun, the naughty thrill of the moment, or have we gone downhill so far that this is only a small example of how close to the edge we really are? I just don’t know any more. But I’m sure several of you can get past the pictures of a pretty girl and think up a response. It’s all moonbattery to me, and I admit to sharing the fascination too. How does this happen?

Update: Wow, this almost makes me feel like I can see the future. It looks like getting missy here to work with Charlie Sheen would actually be a reunion. And he left Denise Richards back at home for this. The world is nuts.

A Solution to Man-Made Global Warming

A Solution to Man-Made Global Warming
by Pat Sajak (Yeah, that one)

There are apparently tens of millions of people around the world who are convinced global warming is real, and mankind (particularly American mankind) is responsible. Further, they believe utterly catastrophic results are imminent unless we drastically alter our lifestyles—and soon. These alterations include the things we eat, our transportation, our daily work and leisure habits, and even the number of children we should have. The problem is there are also tens of millions of people around the world who are skeptical of this theory, and, despite one side’s claims the debate is settled, a significant and growing number of climate experts keep challenging their conclusions.

So, those who believe disaster is around the corner face a dilemma: while they’re educating their fellow citizens and demanding governments regulate believers and non-believers alike, the problem continues, and the date of the world’s doom draws ever closer. But there is a solution. It’s relatively simple, can begin immediately, and will change the dynamics of global warming overnight. Instead of continuing to preach to the rest of us, the true believers need to step forward and set an example. I’m not talking about recycling Evian bottles; I’m talking about giving up cars and moving into smaller houses or apartments, or even forming communes where people can live simpler, more Earth-friendly lives. Yes, I’m talking about living the kinds of lives they want all of us to live.

Such a movement could literally start tomorrow. It would need a leader, of course; someone who could inspire others to choose a more spartan lifestyle. The obvious choice would be Al Gore, who already has a loyal following. If he would eschew large homes, gas-guzzling cars, private jets and the consumption of meat, millions more would likely do the same. If enough people joined the cause, Mr. Gore and his followers would be able to demonstrate the results of this new way of living in very short order. They could lead by example. They could create a movement. They could have uniforms and badges and secret handshakes. The could have their own reality TV show. In short, they could become a major force for change. Carmakers would be driven out of business or forced to dramatically alter their products to meet the demands of this eco-friendly Gorian tsunami. Companies of all stripes would, similarly, have to adapt or perish.

Once the rest of us saw the presumed reversal (or at least slowing-down) of global warming, it would do more to convince us than any lecture or study signed by UN scientists, and it would likely add millions more to the cause. So what if you can’t get one-hundred percent co-operation initially? Wouldn’t half (or a third or a quarter) of the population make a huge difference if they made substantial sacrifices? You could argue it wouldn’t be fair to have some of us going on abusing the planet and leading our lives of consumption and gluttony while others are putting aside the trappings of modern life, but this isn’t about fairness; it’s about survival.

The time for talk is over. The time for action is now. Just think of millions and millions of committed Americans making the personal sacrifices necessary to demonstrate their resolve to combat man-made global warming. And, most important, thanks to their efforts, theory would be replaced by fact. It’s much easier to argue about a study than it is to refute the demonstrable results when the temperature drops and the ocean levels stabilize. When future generations write of the sacrifices of these men and women, they’ll use words like “inspirational” and “heroic”.

And so, I urge the advocates for change to embark on this important mission. Do it for the children. Godspeed.

Well said, Pat.  I urge all of you MMGW Truthers out there to get on the bandwagon and show us how its done.

Rather Psychotic

From LGF

It’s absolutely amazing, but Dan Rather and his lawyers are actually planning to argue in their lawsuit against CBS that the phony memos are genuine.

CBS aired the story on Sept. 8, 2004, at the height of the presidential campaign, hours after White House official Dan Bartlett did not challenge the authenticity of the memos when asked about them by CBS. Bartlett said later that he had no way of knowing on such short notice whether the memos were real.

Gold, Rather’s lawyer, maintained that “nobody’s proved the documents were forgeries. The way we look at it, it’s more than likely the documents are authentic.”


I’m going to say this again just to go on the record: the CBS “Killian” memos are frauds. It has been proven beyond all doubt. It is simply impossible that these documents were created on any machine available in the 1970s.

And for Dan Rather to continue insisting they are genuine shows either: 1) a disconnection from reality that borders on the psychotic, or 2) a blatant liar willing to go down in flames rather than admit the truth.

I’ll take door number 1 Alex.

If you recall, this was the animation Charles did back then, showing the reported document from the 1970’s against a document created in Microsoft Word.

Dead Earth Flop

The BBC was predicting massive viewership.  Two years ago, when LIVE8 ran, 10 million tuned in.  Not so with the Tour de Gore.

Live Earth branded a foul-mouthed flop

Organisers of the global music concert - punctuated by swearing from presenters and performers - had predicted massive viewing figures.

But BBC’s live afternoon television coverage attracted an average British audience of just 900,000.

In the evening, when coverage switched from BBC2 to BBC1, the figure rose to just 2.7million.

And the peak audience, which came when Madonna sang at Wembley, was a dismal 4.5million. Three times as many viewers saw the Princess Diana tribute on the same channel six days before.

The BBC blamed the poor figures on Saturday’s good weather and said its Wimbledon tennis coverage had drawn away afternoon viewers.

Critics said however that the public had simply snubbed what they saw as a hypocritical event.

Emphasis mine.  They figured the sheeple are stupid enough to not realize the hypocracy of these do-gooders flying all over the globe, consuming truck loads of carbon offsets, jsut to tell them they need to conserve.  Guess that plan is backfiring.  Ijits.

Where The Hell Is Matt?

Why have I not heard of this before?

Matt is a 30-year-old deadbeat from Connecticut who used to think that all he ever wanted to do in life was make and play videogames. He achieved this goal pretty early and enjoyed it for a while, but eventually realized there might be other stuff he was missing out on. In February of 2003, he quit his job in Brisbane, Australia and used the money he’d saved to wander around the planet until it ran out. He made this site so he could keep his family and friends updated about where he is.

A few months into his trip, a travel buddy gave Matt the idea of dancing everywhere he went and recording it on his camera. This turned out to be a very good idea. Now Matt is quasi-famous as “That guy who dances on the internet. No, not that guy. The other one. No, not him either. I’ll send you the link. It’s funny.”

The response to the first video brought Matt to the attention of the nice people at Stride long-lasting gum. They asked Matt if he’d be interested in taking another trip around the world to make a new video. Matt asked if they’d be paying for it. They said yes. Matt thought this sounded like another very good idea.

At the end of 2005, Matt left on a 6 month trip through 39 countries on all 7 continents. In that time, he danced a great deal.

Matt dances very badly, but most people don’t seem to mind.

Matt is not rich. Matt also doesn’t have some magical secret for traveling cheaply. He does it pretty much the same way everybody else does.

This is awesome. Yes, Matt dances badly, but the idea of a young man venturing out on his own and dicovering the world is a dream many of us share.  The fact that a corporate sponsor picked him up, with pretty much no restrictions, and let him continue his journey, only adds to the magic.

I’ve been to a couple of the sites he danced in, and watching the videos made me want to get back on a plane.  smirk

Ruth Graham - RIP

Billy Graham’s wife dies
Ruth Graham to be honored at public memorial service
The Associated Press

MONTREAT, N.C. — Ruth Graham, who surrendered dreams of missionary work in Tibet to marry a suitor who became the world’s most renowned evangelist, died Thursday. She was 87.

Graham died at 5:05 p.m. at her home at Little Piney Cove, surrounded by her husband and all five of their children, said a statement released by Larry Ross, Billy Graham’s spokesman.

The Grahams had five children together: Franklin (William Franklin III), Nelson, Virginia, Anne and Ruth. Their daughter, Ruth, lives in Waynesboro.

“Ruth was my life partner, and we were called by God as a team,” Billy Graham said in a statement. “No one else could have borne the load that she carried. She was a vital and integral part of our ministry, and my work through the years would have been impossible without her encouragement and support.

“I am so grateful to the Lord that he gave me Ruth, and especially for these last few years we’ve had in the mountains together. We’ve rekindled the romance of our youth, and my love for her continued to grow deeper every day. I will miss her terribly, and look forward even more to the day I can join her in Heaven.”

Ruth Graham had been bedridden for months with degenerative osteoarthritis of the back and neck — the result of a serious fall from a tree in 1974 while fixing a swing for grandchildren — and underwent treatment for pneumonia two weeks ago. At her request, and in consultation with her family, she had stopped receiving nutrients through a feeding tube for the last few days, Ross said.

The family plans a private interment ceremony and a public memorial service. Those arrangements had yet to be made on Thursday.

As Mrs. Billy Graham, Ruth Graham could lay claim to being the first lady of evangelical Protestantism, but neither exploited that unique status nor lusted for the limelight.

Behind the scenes, however, she was considered her husband’s closest confidant during his spectacular global career.

Thank you Ruth, for your undying committment to your God, to your husband and to your family.

His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
Matthew 25:23

Quote Of The Week

-- Paris Hilton, who will start her 45-day jail sentence June 5 but will probably not serve more than three weeks (if even that much time) due to prison overcrowding. She has filed an appeal with Governor Schwarzenegger for clemency.

Wouldn’t this be so much more fun if we had a Jimmy Cagney gangsta-type moment when they come to take her to jail. She could hide behind a window of her mansion, firing a .38 pistol at the police and yelling, “Come and get me, coppers! You’ll never take Paris alive! Bwah-hah-ha-ha-ha ..”

Quote Of The Day

imageimage
“I have people who do that for me. Legal documents and traffic citations elude [me]. I just sign what people tell me to sign.”

--Paris Hilton, explaining to the judge why she doesn’t read her mail and therefore wasn’t aware her drivers license had been suspended, for which she is now going to have to serve 45 days in a 4-foot by 8-foot cell in the county jail that has a toilet, a sink, two bunk beds and ... a roommate named Big Bertha

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
