I wanna drink until I ache. I wanna make a big mistake.
I should probably stop dressing like this. I’m twenty-fucking-three.
But then I’ve been saying that since I was 17.

Was only recently reminded that I still have a Tumblr! I’ll be more “Active” on here from now.
I was going to post this on OMG! Ubuntu! but I’m just far too aware of the shit-storm it’d kick up. Which makes me even sadder.
“Very rarely do I use this blog as a political soap-box but quite a large number of readers got in touch regarding the following news item and asked whether we could highlight it and spread a bit of awareness on it.
Now at first glance my editor pangs kicked in and said ‘It’s not Ubuntu related’ - it’s not an app, tweak or theme, nor is it an interview, review or general bug rant - but then I realised it was related to Ubuntu. In quite a big way.
Ubuntu is much more than an OS. It goes far beyond the digital confines of code and into the real world; it’s a community. That community is made up of so many wonderful, diverse and different people all of whom deserve respect whatever their leanings, choices and persuasions.
Yes - even people who still use Clearlooks as their default theme!
Humour aside, its sometimes easy to forget that the welcoming warmth this wonderful bubble called ’Ubuntu’ is filled with doesn’t always seep out to defrost the discriminatory dangers we’d like.
Last week the United Nations - arguably one of the most important and influential forces for good the world has ever seen - saw a plea to protect lesbians, gay and bisexual people protected from execution based solely on the gender of who they love defeated - albeit narrowly.
I can appreciate that not everyone agrees, approves or understands the complexities of human sexuality - I certainly don’t - but I do find it very disheartening that whilst people are protected form arbitrary killings based on their language or choice of protest (all of which remain in the bill) it cannot be afforded to those very same people but whose orientation is pointed at people of their own gender.”
Armenia’s 2009 Eurovision entry - “Jan Jan” by Inga and Anush (or ‘Ink and a bush’ as I took to calling them for a while..) - cropped up in my Banshee (Music player) playlist earlier.
With a memory capcity approaching that of a gnat in a time loop I had to go see where this song came back in Moscow, 2009.
It scored 10th place according to the fountain of trivia that is Wiki.
I can’t help but feel a bit dissapouinted with that. I remember loving the song then and love it just as much now. Bar the Baltic-country amalgamation that is Rybak and the windingly poor execution of La Voix, there was sod all else that year that was as catchy, ethnic or as eurovision as Jan Jan.
La Camilla is not in the mood for lovers. Not even an army of lovers.
It’s not a suprise that, being a nerd, I am a skinny fuck. But so are the insane twins Jedward (above).
Yet they look *good* with their tops off - I don’t. I look like i’ve taken a deep breath and forgotten to let it back out.
So my plan is to beef up my upper body ‘a bit’. If you don’t like male torso, you might want to stop following…
I’m on a bit of a Dead or Alive trip at the moment. Perhaps the looming “best of best” Big Brother 2 week stint coming up has made subconsciously jogged my memory about the legend that is Pete Burns.
To most people Dead or Alive are synonymous with one track and one track only: You Spin me Round (like a record) but, out side of the UK at least, they were much more successful. Dead or Alive were so incredibly popular in Japan, for instance, that they once forced Michael Jackson to reschedule his tour around theirs! They also stayed at number one in Japan for 17 consecutive weeks with ‘Turn around and count to ten’, as well as 4 weeks as the US Dance number one - no didn’t think you’d have heard of it!
Above is a megamix of some of their hits and it’s pretty good. probably will fly above the heads of anyone not already familiar with Pete but hey - freak unique!
