Jul. 23rd, 2005 @ 05:39 pm ...and the obligatorily serious follow-up
Blogpost from a survivor of the London terrorist attack. He's inviting people to take the Underground to a local pub and have a pint with him. The purpose? To snub the American news journalists who are putting up headlines like LONDON PARALYZED WITH FEAR.

Also, the sardonic response to We're Not Afraid:

I Am Fucking Terrified.

Oh, London.

Also also: Hilarious R. Kelly five-part soap opera. (Video section.) I'm not a fan of R. Kelly, but the acting and lip-syncing in this video are spot on.

Heh. I actually had to make the mini- "if I don't become a crazy tourist in London, the terrorists will have won" speech to my dad on the phone today. "We will fight them in the British Museum, we will fight them on top of the London Eye, we will fight them at Shakespeare's grave in Stratford-upon-Avon..." You get the picture. :p

Michelle! This is a bit of a tangent here, I'm interested to hear the opinions of real Japanese people on the following movies:

  • Lost in Translation
  • Windtalkers
  • Pearl Harbor (might want to preface by reminding them that America hated this movie too)

    Could you ask for me?

    "we're not afraid" makes we wonder if whoever thought of it was inspired by VNV Nation lyrics.

    Swoooooords! Also sandwiches!

    I think it was inspired by "Sorry Everybody".

    Swords? Sandwiches?
