back from Tenerife. I enjoyed it mostly. The company was great but the resort was a hole. Just to repeat for those doing searches on Play de las Americas in Tenerife – Its a Shit Hole. Go to another resort in Tenerife. Theres far better ones.

12 reasons why gay people should not be allowed to get married

12 reasons why gay people should not be allowed to get married

1. Homosexuality is not natural, much like eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control.

2. Heterosexual marriages are valid becasue they produce children. Infertile couples and old people can’t legally get married because the world needs more children.

3. Obviously, gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

4. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if Gay marriage is allowed, since Britney Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.

5. Heterosexual marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all; women are property, blacks can’t marry whites, and divorce is illegal.

6. Gay marriage should be decided by people, not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of the minorities.

7. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire counrty. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

8. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

9. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

10. Children can never suceed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why single parents are forbidden to raise children.

11. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven’t adapted to things like cars or longer lifespans.

12. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a “seperate but equal” institution is always constitutional. Seperate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as seperate marriages for gays and lesbians will.

it doesn’t matter what you know if you don’t care – jack kemp

I really haye scaremongering. People devoid of a clue telling people the dangers of something and not knowing what they’re talking about. Scaring people into believing that before they do anything they have to consult this person – A self appointed authority.

Wankers.

The Roots – Seed 2.0

I love this song. The Roots – Seed 2.0 , its a fab song about this guy that wants to impregnate as many women as possible to keep his legend alive.

I just like good guitar rock mixed with black singers. This tune works so so well. I wish there was more of this type of music. The only other band I remember like this was In Living Colour. Terence Trent Darby kind of did it for a while too. Soul singers and guitar music go so well together. Solomon Burke does it too but he is more along the lines of the old guys like BB King. This song is taking the guitards and the fantastic voice of Cody Chestnut and using modern lyrics.

I push my seed somewhere deep in her chest
I push it naked cause I’ve takin my test
Deliverin’ Mary it don’t matter the sex
I’m gonna name it rock’n roll.

and they asked me which heads should fall, and the harbour fell quiet as i answered ‘all’

‘and they asked me which heads should fall, and the harbour fell quiet as i answered ‘all’. ‘ – This is a line from a song in a Bertolt brecht’s thrupenny opera called “pirate jenny”.

Seems like a Nick Cave song. Read about it in new reviews for Lars Von Tiers film Dogville. Seems like a very interesting movie.

Snow Patrol – Run

Great song, great band. Looks like they are finally getting the recognition they deserve. Reindeer Section is a side project for this band too. Pissed off I missed them play Cork a while back. Read these lyrics:

I’ll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You’ve been the only thing that’s right
In all i’ve done.

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we’ll make it anywhere
Anywhere from here

Light up, Light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder, louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes
It makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbyes
I nearly do.

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder, louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

Slower, slower
We don’t have time for that
All I want is to find an easier way
To get out of our little heads

Have heart my dear
We’re bound to be afraid
Even if it’s just for a few days
Making up for all this mess.

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear.

My brain is turning to mush. I’ve not learned anything in a long time in my employment. What knowledge I had going in to the job is evaporating.

Gonna fix that though. Hurrah.
