Here's another Queen's speech. Of course you won't understand a bit of what she's saying, but I thought it was nice to post it anyway. Also with some shots of my hometown The Hague (Queen Beatrix also lives here). There was a bit of a row about it, because it was quite political - and not so much in line with our current government. A lot about sustainability, protection of nature, 'immaterial values that give meaning to civilization', and a more conscious way of living. Quite good actually.

Here's something I might watch tonight: America's homeless resort to tent cities.

It's a poverty on a disastrous scale in the richest country on earth: one and a half million American children now homeless.

This is the country which others follow in implementing the market economy, and with it the lie that if the economy is unfettered by regulation then wealth will trickle down and everything in the garden will be rosy.

Not all homeless people are unemployed; there are apparently many who have a job, but it's not enough to pay the rent. And there's apparently no help for them?

BBC1 at 8:30 and iplayer thereafter.

watched this on telly last night www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01dpnx5/R...eland_with_a_Fridge/
Tony Hawks wakes up one morning to find he has accepted a drunken bet to hitchhike around Ireland with a fridge within one calendar month. The document was signed. The bet was made. The adventure begins. A comedy road trip, based on Hawks's bestselling book. A true story... with a few fibs.

rather oddly, tony hawks* plays himself, even though its a fictionalised version of his book. its quite amusing little film, not much happens, but theres lots of lovely irish countryside to look at. check it out B)

*tony hawks comedian and writer, rather than tony hawks famous skateboarder. but wouldn't that be awesome if it was tony hawks famous skateboarder playing tony hawks fridge man?? :silly:
I have a blog! It's tiny and new, but take a look and say nice things! Thanks.

I'm loving the new series Punk Britannia on the BBC. Tonight's episode is about post-punk, featuring so many of my favourite bands. Catch it on iPlayer if you can!

Last night's episode was the best by far. What a fertile period for music and action it was. 'PiL - 'Second Edition' and Crass live. The 80's hold such dark fond memories.

The 70's was a helter skelter rush, the 80's the comedown.

I have a feeling that might be something for Confused?

I like the sound of that too. Some classics there.
