My love/hate relationship with Muammar el-Qaddafi

This guy is fucking crazy – lets talk about it:

  1. Love – nobody can even fucking agree how to spell his name.  You will see it either spelled Qaddafi or Gadafi, with el or al in front.  If you want to be a good dictator, you gotta keep people guessing
  2. Hate – guy is clearly an asshole.  We know pretty much for sure he helped support the <a href=”″>Lockerbie bombing</a>, which killed 243 people.
  3. Love – what type of terrorist dictator has the flavor of this guy?  Dude is always rocking proper shades and a Jheri curl.  Usually with some crazy ass bathrobe to boot:
  4. Does Quadaffi have to smack a bitch?

    Yesterday, he was rocking the M-frames.

    Seriously - I couldn't get away with this shit on Halloween.

  5. Love – Dude was in the running for “closest thing on earth to the living dead”.  Everyone in the free world keeps waiting for him to die but it just doesn’t happen.  Other competitors were Kieth Richards, Ronald McDonald, and Michael Jackson.  Then MJ went ahead and took the prize – I hope you understand MJ is still alive and well hanging out in the Wall-Mart parking lot.  But I digress:

    Don't shake too hard - arm may detach.

  6. Hate – he just titled himself a Colonel.  If you are a dictator, much more fitting to declare onself the “supreme leader,” at the very least.

Darwin Rocks

The Knife – Tomorrow, In a Year

Commissioned by Danish performance group Hotel Pro Forma to write the music for their opera based on Charles Darwin and his book ‘On the Origin of the Species’, The Knife decided to make this a collaborative process, working with artists Mt. Sims and Planningtorock for the first time, to capture the huge width of the Darwin and evolution theme. They extensively researched Darwin related literature and articles, with Olof attending a field recording workshop in the Amazon to find inspiration and to record sounds.

Even though I love The Knife, the first time I listened to the album, didn’t like it.  It definitely grows on you with more listens.
