A Little Nonsense Now And Zen

Buddha said: "I consider the positions of kings and rulers as that of dust motes. I observe treasures of gold and gems as so many bricks and pebbles. I look upon the finest silken robes as tattered rags. I see myriad worlds of the universe as small seeds of fruit, and the greatest lake in India as a drop of oil on my foot. I perceive the teachings of the world to be the illusion of magicians. I discern the highest conception of emancipation as a golden brocade in a dream, and view the holy path of the illuminated ones as flowers appearing in one's eyes. I see meditation as a pillar of a mountain, Nirvana as a nightmare of daytime. I look upon the judgment of right and wrong as the serpentine dance of a dragon, and the rise and fall of beliefs as but traces left by the four seasons."

Klara And Edda Belly Dancing - Finally Uncensored

I've followed this story on my other blog from the very start.

Finally today the picture was passed as 'decent'

Kerrie Bell, head of the CPS Northumbria South Unit, said: "In order to prove that the photograph is indecent we must be satisfied that contemporary standards of propriety are so different now to what they were in 2001, that it is more likely than not that a court will conclude that the photograph is indecent.
"I am not satisfied that is the case.
"Even if the photograph was now considered to be indecent, a defendant would be able to raise a legitimate defence, given that the photograph was distributed for the purposes of display in a contemporary art gallery after having been deemed not to be indecent by the earlier investigation.
"Accordingly, I am of the opinion that the evidence is insufficient to justify proceedings for offences of possession or distribution of an indecent photograph."

Common sense wins through and a beautiful picture of two sweet children can be viewed with the innocence intended.

Evil Monkey!

In a freak event, the Deputy Mayor of Dehli has been killed by a gang of marauding monkeys.

SS Bajwa died from serious head injuries after falling from his balcony whilst fighting off a group of Rhesus Macaques.

The city has been plagued by the monkeys and last year the government demanded that a solution be found. Langur monkeys, which are larger and more vicious than the macaques have been let loose in the hope that they will chase the smaller ones away. Monkey catchers are also employed to round them up and release them in the jungle.

Culling is not seen as an option in the hindu city as the monkeys are revered as the manifestation of the god 'Hanuman'.

Urban developement has been blamed for destroying the monkeys natural habitat.

SS Bajwa leaves a wife and a son.

Mouse Vs Mouse - The Mickey (Micky) Fight Is On

I've never been a particular lover of Disney. They seem to warp good old family values into a sanitised, politically correct, brave new world-esque pseudo reality.

The breaking point for this feeling came when I was watching 'The Little Mermaid' way back when. I've always loved Hans Christian Anderson and the thought of seeing one of his most popular stories on screen was exciting (ok, I was way too old for Disney by this point but - who cares).

I was greeted on watching, not with the visual and stimulating extavaganza I was expecting but with a dribbling, twisted, drawing that took every single piece of archetypal wisdom and moral and ethical value and lesson and smashed it like a chimney sweep!

So this little article on boing boing today really made my day.

Remember that Simpsons episode where the real Itchy and Scratchy artist sues the cartoon company......

......well read on

"This eBay auction for a rare 1920s "Micky" Mouse toy from the Performo-Toy Company includes an article that looks into the possibility that Disney cheated the Performo-Toy Company out of the character. "

"The events that follow are largely circumstantial, but Middletown historians believe it is likely that Walt Disney borrowed his most creative idea from the Performo-Toy Company. It is known that a mouse toy with the name Micky was being sold in toy stores all over New York City while Disney was visiting. Disney historians say the idea for Mickey Mouse was conceived by Disney while on the train to California, following the stressful New York business trip. The story goes that Disney suggested Mortimer for the name of his mouse character, but his wife Lillian felt Mickey was a more appropriate name. Regardless of how Disney reports the origin of Mickey Mouse, Middletown historians are certain that Micky Mouse originated in Middletown more than a year before he appeared in Hollywood. Was Disney's idea for Mickey Mouse derived from the popular Micky Mouse toy? Before you decide, consider the possibility that Micky Mouse toys were so popular they may have been sold on the train Disney was riding on his way from New York City to Los Angeles.
Micky Mouse, the toy, and Mickey Mouse, the cartoon movie star, coexisted from 1928 to 1931. By 1931, Disney's new animation and sound techniques had launched the cartoon Mickey to superstar status. Walt's brother Roy was put in charge of marketing Mickey Mouse merchandise. One of the items he sold was a toy replica of the cartoon. Mickey and Micky were now competing in the same market. Ironically, they used the Borgfeldt Company, the same distributor Performo-Toy Company had been using for years. The Disney Corporation sued the Performo-Toy Company claiming they took Micky from Disney. The small toy company was no match for the large production company and the courts ordered the Performo-Toy Company to stop all production of the Micky toys and destroy any existing stock. Even catalogs containing Micky had to be destroyed. This tragedy, along with the Great Depression, was enough to put the Performo-Toy Company out of business."

Disneys Mickey Mouse

Performos Micky Mouse

....for those who don't know The Little Mermaid dies in the end! That comes after the wicked witch gives her legs on the provision that every step she takes on land will be like walking on broken glass. And even AFTER she dies (cos she don't get the prince) she is given a child to look after (gaurdian angel type thing) and she will saty a hundred years in limbo for every tear that child cries.

Now THAT'S a fuckin' fairy tale!!!!!

Despite all of that though the Disney Little Mermaid film still has one of my fave songs (see youtube vid below) and one of my favourite 'homage' videos (click this link to view)

Lights Out

Doing my usual sauntering around the less well visited corners of the internet (as usual) I happened across this litle beauty.

Imagine the look on your mates faces when your standing outside the local pub, havin' a smoke and you pull this out of your pocket in order to extinguish your cigarette.

This Little Piggy...

Get a load of these little fellas!
Didn't I promise you cute - and if you can think of anything cuter than this then please submit it. Cos I don't think you're gonna be able to.

These miniature piggies are bred at Pennywell Farm in Devon.
They're a variant of the Kune Kune breed from New Zealand and have been bred down in size to make the perfect pet.

They're easily house trained and have a good natured temprement.
An adult will weigh in at just 70kg and they're selling for £150 each.
(Jonathan Ross already has two.)

I think I want one to go with my ducks! Maybe two....

....or three.

Friday Night Top Of The Pops

Only one tune for you tonight, but it's a good one.
The more I listen to this, the more I like it.
There's a slight (kinda bendy) connection between me and this song.
Those who know me know that I don't have this multitude of TV channels that seems to be almost compulsory these days. I have just the basic four british channels (and one of those is in welsh) so I don't get to see all of these new satellite or digital programmes.
But - I DO have the internet and all those sweet little websites that have links to watch these shows online.
Now I've been pretty ill the last couple of weeks so all I've really had to keep me busy is catching up with a few of the more recent shows.
One of which was BBC3's 'Gavin and Stacey'.
I watched it cos my mums cousin (so also my cousin really) was in it.
He played 'Griff'
And this song was the song that played over the scenes of Gavin and Staceys wedding day.
Isn't life strange.

Evolution Vs Creation

John.1.1 - In teh beginz is teh werd, and teh werd iz liek "Oh hai Ceiling Cat" and teh werd eated teh Ceiling Cat.

Dan.3.1-5 - Teh Kign Cheez Nebuchadnezzar maked a huge statchu like ninety foots big an wuz liek, I'll put it in teh kewlest plaice in Babylon LOL!

Everywun went ovar thar and luuked at it.
Then teh kign's loud voise man sed: "OMG! I iz ttly teh sh!T.
"U heer muzak, u fall down, k?

They need a bit of help translating the whole works so if you're at a loose end....
