so, LJ ate up this long post I wrote(by my standards). if it was physically possible to stab LJ, I totally would. but violence is not the answer. the answer is a condensed form of my post.
this is the official video for The Age of Understatement, the new song by The Last Shadow Puppets
. it's a joint side project by Alex Turner (of the Arctic Monkeys) and his boyfriend, Miles Kane (of The Rascals). I'm a huge fan of Arctic Monkeys but know nothing about the Rascals. so if you know anything about them, EDUCATE ME. I think the video is about their first date. Apparently, it involves auditioning in churches in front of a tired pope(?) and a very boring family, a ride on top of a war tank and running along a row of tanks in a snowy field. you know, just to be contrary. side note: Alex looks tiny
. (and not at all twenty two years of age.)
a live rip of the songThe Age of Understatement (live)
not exactly quality, though.
secondly, the Charlatans just put out their newest album You Cross My Path. for free. no catch. if you don't want the whole thing, you can download the songs individually. get it here
The Election Commission (whose responsibility is to make sure that the election is fair) pulled the plug
on its plan to use inedible ink on polling day. days
before polling day (it's this Saturday). originally, the use of inedible ink was going to be implemented to curb multiple or phantom voting. the plan was said to be scrapped because the police received reports of some people planning to smuggle in the ink and sabotaging the voting process. or maybe it's because they haven't amended the Fedral Constitution yet so that inedible ink could actually be used. no, don't ask me why they didn't address this issue before they spent millions of ringgit on purchasing the ink.
also, I am seriously sick of those BN ads. they couldn't even be bothered to make those ads good.
and whatever happened to the art of subtlety? *sigh*
