Oh Billy Brown had lived an ordinary life.
Two kids, a dog, and a cautionary wife.
While it was all going according to plan
Then Billy Brown fell in love with another man.
~Billy Brown

No need to fantasize, since I was in my braces
a watering hole with the girls around and curves in all the right places
~Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)

This is the way you left me
I'm not pretending
No hope no love no glory
No happy ending
This is the way we love
Like it's forever
and live the rest of our life
but not together
~Happy Ending

Mindfrak R Us: Missing Kid Comments On Website Parents Set Up To Find Him?

Another notable online appearance of "Shawn Devlin" came Dec. 1, 2005, in the comments on a Web page for the missing Shawn Hornbeck. The poster, listing his residence as Kirkwood, first asked, "How long are you planning to look for your son?" An hour later, a new post appeared, apologizing for the prior post.

"i write poems and i was wounding if it would be ok to write a poem for the Hornbeck fam. And they son 'shawn Hornbeck' it would be cool if i could but if you dont want me to I can understan why i guess but i was wounding i guess if i could write a poem in his honer (sorry I don't know how to spell that last word.)"- LA TIMES

WTF? TOTALLY WEIRD! MAYBE IT WAS THE KIDNAPPER? SEEMS LIKE IT WAS THE KID, PERHAPS BECAUSE HE FELT GUILT OVER THEIR LOSS. IN THE CASE OF ELIZABETH SMART (AMAZING ARTICLE ON BRAINWASHING AND SEXUAL ABUSE) SHE WAS TOLD HER SISTER WOULD BE KILLED IF SHE ESCAPED, MAYBE SOMETHING SIMILAR HAPPENED TO THIS KID...BUT HE STILL FELT FOR HIS PARENTS? THAT'S MY CALL. BASED OFF THE AMAZING AMOUNT OF EFFORT THE PARENTS SPENT TO FIND (NEWS STORY FROM 2006) HIM (FBI PAGE), I DON'T BELIEVE THEY WERE THE ABUSIVE TYPE...SO MANY KIDS RUN FROM THAT AND PARENTS WRITE IT OFF.

EVEN CRAZIER, THERE'S A SEARCH AND RESCUE TEAM NAMED AFTER THE KID!


Bloc Party Bi? YAY FOR BISEXUALS!



Okereke determined to give A Weekend in the City more sign-of-the-times heft - 'to weave a tapestry of lots of different views and issues and perspectives to create an overall sense of what life in a metropolis is like in the 21st century'.

Harsh realities are also rammed home on other new songs. The words to 'Where is Home?' begin at the funeral of Christopher Alaneme, the black teenager stabbed in small-town Kent last April. Okereke describes him as a cousin, although they weren't related by blood; their mums, both Nigerian, were very good friends. Okereke says that ultimately the song is about the fostering, by right-wing newspapers, of a fear of 'The Other'. That is, black youth in hoodies. And how that then means opportunities denied.

'I just feel that every non-white teenager will know what I'm talking about when I say that certain avenues in this country are closed to you. Whenever I walk into a pub in London I feel frightened. There are certain activities that are still more predominantly white.' He and his flatmate, a white Austrian girl, have been abused by bigots who thought they were a mixed-race couple. The multicultural melting pot, Okereke concludes, is unworkable.

Does it please him, I ask, that he might be a role model for a 15-year-old Bloc Party fan in Essex who's unsure, insecure?

'I guess that's the only reason [to speak out], isn't it?' he says. 'To speak to young people in their impressionable formative years - and say something that could help them make sense of their lives. Lessen the sense of alienation and isolation that they might have. I think that's something that definitely ... I'd be proud of. That we could say that there are alternative ways of behaving, of living one's life.'

He goes on to cite a quote from groundbreaking lesbian novel The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall - it had a profound impact on him when he was writing 'I Still Remember'.

It takes a couple of hours - and my telling him that he's without peer, so no wonder he's a bit all over the place - for Okereke to offer further clarification. 'Well, there are some famous bisexuals. Brian Molko [from Placebo] I guess. David Bowie. Morrissey. It's not like that this is an impulse that's... Sorry, can I just get this?' His mobile has just rung, saving him more discomfort.

The next day Okereke emails Radclyffe Hall's words to me. 'You are neither unnatural nor abominable, nor mad,' it begins. 'You're as much a part of what people call nature as anyone else, only you are unexplained as yet - you've got your niche in creation.'

OH MY DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN! YES! I've been pretty sure about him since falling for Bloc Party in 05, head over heels like most rock aficionados. Pioneers is my fav bloc party song, here's my fav bit:
So here we are reinventing the wheel
I'm shaking hands with a hurricane
It's a colour that I can't describe,
It's a language I can't understand
Ambition, tearing out the heart of you
Carving lines into you
Dripping down the sides of you

We will not be the last.

$200 Mill James Cameron flick, HELL YES


Set for release in 2009, Avatar is Cameron's first feature since the Oscar-winning Titanic.

Using a mix of live action and animation, it will be filmed in 3D for release in a new digital 3D format.

Some scenes will be shot in Los Angeles.

Written by Cameron, the film is set 150 years in the future.

It tells the story of a wounded former marine who is "thrust unwillingly into an effort to settle and exploit an exotic planet rich in biodiversity, who eventually crosses over to lead the indigenous race in a battle for survival".

Cameron came up with the idea more than 10 years ago but has been waiting for the technology to create his vision.

He wanted a "new face" to play lead character Jake Sully and held auditions throughout the world before deciding on Worthington, who has had parts in Somersault and Dirty Deeds.

Zoe Saldana, who starred in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, will play Sully's extra-terrestrial love interest.

Cameron, a self-confessed fan of science fiction and action genres, conceived the film as a potential franchise with future instalments.

He described it as both "epic" and his "dream project".

"We're creating an entire world, a complete ecosystem of phantasmagorical plants and creatures, and a native people with a rich culture and language."

Animator and Japanese internment vet passes


IWAO Takamoto, the animator who created the cartoon dogs Scooby-Doo and Muttley and directed the classic film Charlotte's Web has died. He was 81.

Mr Takamoto, who began learning his craft in an American internment camp during the Second World War, died of heart failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angles on Monday, Gary Miereanu, a spokesman for Warner Bros Animation, said yesterday.

In a career spanning more than six decades, Mr Takamoto helped to design some of the biggest animated films and television shows, including Cinderella, Peter Pan, 101 Dalmatians, Lady and the Tramp and The Flintstones.
