A pineapple and a palm tree

These two inanimate objects are part of my new favourite tv programme - My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. Gaudy garish glittering disasters. Amazing! If you’ve never watched it before I highly recommend it. Excellent stress relief and guaranteed to make you feel better about yourself. God bless the gypsies in all their bling bling glory…!

Thoughts for today:

Yesterday was our shortest day. Today was extended by a whole second. Tomorrow will see another astounding four seconds added. Summers obviously just round the corner…

The rumor is @KimDotcom is actually the real Dotcom, finally making his presence known on twitter since being banned from the Internet. Yay - another fascinating ego to case study…

A psychic has been arrested after allegedly convincing women to strip to be closer to the spirit world. Stupidity and naivety are a dangerous combination when mixed with a pervert…

In Michigan a state law stipulates that a woman’s hair legally belongs to her husband. I’d like to see a man try that one here…!

Highlights:

Diamanté’s, tiara’s and fake tans on 12 year old tweens. It’s terrible and yet I can’t avert my eyes…

Lowlights:

I had to do a lot of unexpected walking today. I was wearing 4 inch heels. Things two things do not go together well…

Ever since he arrived in New Zealand Dotcom has made a laughing stock of almost everyone who has had contact with him. It began with the immigration officials who gave him residency knowing he was the subject of an FBI investigation; then the GCSB who illegally spied on him, apparently unaware he was a New Zealand resident; then the police who raided him with guns and unprecedented force, apparently because they were convinced he had a doomsday device that would wipe all his data; then the PM who had to apologise for the spying bungle; then John Banks who came down river on a cabbage boat unaware who gave him what political donations; then Laila Harre and Hone Harawira who thought getting into bed with Dotcom to make a political party was a match made in heaven.
To that long list we can now add the Supreme Court for its Cirque du Soleil-like contortions to make an invalid warrant valid.

Fiat justitia ruat caelum.

This song was produced by Kim Dotcom, Printz Board and Sleep Deez.
With lyrics and vocals by Kim Dotcom and friends.

The lyrics:

The war for the Internet has begun.
Hollywood is in control of politics.
The Government is killing innovation.
Don’t let them get away with that.

I have a dream, like Dr. King,
this is the time to stand up and fight.

By any means, if we dont do anything,
they will just blame it on the copyright.

Keep this movement going.
Keep this movement tweeting.
Keep this movement moving.

The pursuit of happiness.
Happiness. Happiness. Happiness.
The pursuit of happiness.

Let’s get together, lets all unite,
or they will do whatever they like.

Let’s get together, lets all unite,
or they will do whatever they like.

What about free speech, Mr. President?
What happened to change, Mr. President?
Are you pleading the fifth, Mr. President?
Are you going to fix this, Mr. President?

We must oppose, don’t vote for those,
who want to take us back in time.

We must expose, the people who chose,
to turn innovation into crime.

Let’s get together, lets all unite,
or they will do whatever they like.

Let’s get together, lets all unite,
or they will do whatever they like.

What about free speech, Mr. President?
What happened to change, Mr. President?
Are you pleading the fifth, Mr. President?
Are you going to fix this, Mr. President?

Hollywood marionettes,
taking over our Internet,
don’t let them get away with that,
don’t let them get away with that.

It starts with you and me
we will make history.

It starts with you and me
we will make history.

Let’s get together, lets all unite,
or they will do whatever they like.

Let’s get together, lets all unite,
or they will do whatever they like.

What about free speech, Mr. President?
What happened to change, Mr. President?
Are you pleading the fifth, Mr. President?
Are you going to fix this, Mr. President?
