the answer:

"The first thing that made me suspicious of Osama Bin Laden was that I don't know anybody else with any of those names. Then the bombings. That made me suspicious too. You know, the first time I heard it, I thought they said Dick Van Patten had bombed our Nigerian embassy and I thought that it confirmed some grave doubts I had about the former '8 is Enough' head honcho. Turns out,it wasn't Dick, but Osama ...but 'Bin Laden' actually is Arabic for "Van Patten." Makes you think, Right?"

the question: what should we do for dinner tomorrow?

xpost - I guess so yeah um. I think I associated it with playing more Urban stuff in general. Not just a 'black' channel. Which is good!

God, I hate to use that word (Urban) I'm just trying to explain how it struck me as not so much a UK equivalent of MTV Base, and more just playing things (obviously wide of the indie/rock/pop radar) that were unlikely to trouble the charts just yet, but were still becoming popular. I wish there were more channels like it right now!

I feel sorry for the lot of you who took the time out of your lives to try to hurt my feelings. This was an obvious JOKE, or I thought it was. Not surprising that some dolt from pitchforkmedia would miss the point (they always do).

However, there were some people who realized it was self-mockery (I think)... then, there were those who actually felt the need to point out my (obviously intentional, I thought) hypocritical finger pointing.

How one could be confused by such a blatantly idiotic post is beyond me. A diatribe that makes no sense and contradicts itself?!

And, I'll agree with Dan, by the way, about Terry Pratchet. I think the douche who "read that survey a couple weeks ago" and "got confused because he read two books at the same time" is full of shit: a total fake who can use a search engine really quickly. "I know everything so well, I get ideas that are completely dissimilar mixed up!" What a moron. It's hard for me to believe this guy is going for his master's.

Have a good one, ya shmucks! Let's see a bunch of people who "don't care" respond to this thread, too. A-fucking-duy already, people!

A seperate thread to discuss

Al Qaeda's USAMA/ Osama BIN LADEN

The growing intelligence of the evidence of Al Qaeda's Osama bin Laden's terrorism network

Yet more evidence this was reported yesterday ! September 9, 2001 - On Videotape, Bin Laden Charts a Violent Future

He tells followers that there is nothing to fear from the United States and that their Islamic faith — and their willingness to die — is enough to neutralize America's military might.

Much of the tape focuses on the current upheaval in Israel and the Palestinian territories. What is not clear, say intelligence experts, is whether Mr. bin Laden plans to mount direct attacks on Israeli targets, or whether he is firing followers' passions for attacks elsewhere. "Our brothers in Palestine are waiting for you anxiously, and expect you to strike at America and Israel," Mr. bin Laden says. "God's earth is wide and their interests are everywhere."

What more evidence do you require?

anthony easton (anthony) wrote this on thread Mel Gibson's passion play on board I Love Everything on 08-Jul-2003

Gibson is not a real catholic but part of a dangerous and schismatic movement called the latin tridentines who are trying to crawl back to pius xii, ie before the massive and important (and god inspired) changes of the second vatican council.
this film is propaghanda for a christianity that is legalistic (which paul warns against)--by that legalism the view of the church as alive and interacting with its traditions is lost, with these things lost, there is also lost the progressive church inspired by a view and of Jesus as a radical and progessive social leader.

he is v. much informed as well by a political agenda that is as conserative as it comes.

i am not looking forward to this film, as i am not looking forward to the continued infulence of thoughts similar to Gibson, including Cardinal Ratzinger, who has met and disucssed the persavation of the family with our friend mel.

Well, I found myself really just indulging more in my traditional artists (the ones with actual staying power and talent). I bought older albums because there hasn't been much music that's worth anything lately. Pink is probably the only artist who is more modern- esque. I dig her. I pre-ordered a Robyn album that will come out next year in America. But besides that, I can't really say anyone has tickled my fancy.

i went in '99 - really enjoyed it. the venue is actually brilliant because you're in the Bowl which is this valley-like plain and you have high hills surrounding the site so jeep lights at the top look like meteors, haha. its fairly easy to get to but it did take quite a long time to get in at about 4pm on the Saturday, traffic jams etc. - people being too monged to park properly etc. other potential highlights: the line-up is usually the best any big dance event gets in the UK nowadays, those silver sheets that keep you warm at night, the possibility of bumping into Russell Brand and attempting to 'out-loon' him with your deranged ramblings about The Flumps, losing all your mates before 10pm and not seeing them again until 5am at the earliest...
one downside is its corporate branding central and if you're not with Orange you probably wont be able to charge your phone unless they've switched to Vodafone for a site charging station this time, but thats no big deal considering its a 20 hour event or thereabouts. be wary of scallies on the blag and security corps rummaging through your bags for smuggled booze and spliffs tho eh?

Lots of questions, eh? The spur for all this was my horrified encounter with two emo tracks I got off of saturn.org. And no, I'm not really dismissing an entire genre after two songs: if you know some good stuff, do tell.

Ned Raggett (Ned) wrote this on thread Are we living in a monoculture? on board I Love Everything on 19-Apr-2003

Actually, here's an interesting story that just popped up on the BBC newssite. In particular one section leapt out at me, framed as it was by this thread in ways:
According to Adil Rehman, the college plays a vital role by creating a generation of Muslims capable of interpreting Islam to the West and vice-versa.

"The irony is that this type of institute can only really develop in the freedom provided by the West.

"But the reason is clear if you think about it. Here the political systems have no understanding of Islam, so they cannot direct it or make people think in a particular way.

"In the East, it is different. Governments there are well-versed in manipulation. They know what they want you to learn and what they don't want you to learn," he said.

The conclusion is also intriguing as well:

However not all Muslims are happy with the course Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy has taken, nor with the growing influence of the IEHS and its parent body, the Union of Islamic Organisations in France (UOIF).
