The bulk of Koopa’s followers are teenagers who are buying the single using a mobile phone rather than an online store, Mr Raymond believes. It costs Â£1.50 to send a text message and receive a code to download the song on a computer. “The average 16-year-old doesn’t have a credit card but they’ve got a mobile phone,” the manager explains.
Check this painfully clear and accurate Flash-based presentation of the demographics of U.S. service members who have died in the Iraq war to date. These days I tend to avoid posting about “Operation Iraqi Freedom We’re Not Winning So Let’s Send More Troops” but this really shows its dire consequences.
When Jim Stauffer of Petaluma saw a chicken crawling out of a mound of compost like the living dead, he knew something had changed at the egg farm next door. “We called them zombie chickens,” Stauffer said. “Some of them crawled right up out of the ground. They’d get out and stagger around.”
Is the Bush administration preparing an escape to Paraguay? Say what Barry? The Cuban news service reports that George W. Bush has purchased 98,840 acres in Paraguay, near the Bolivian/Brazilian border.
Now, Prensa Latina is a Cuban-government operation that is not exactly friendly toward Washington, what with Washington trying to kill Castro for 50 years and all. But Prensa Latina didnâ€™t invent the story. Itâ€™s all over the South American press â€” and not just Venezuela and Bolivia. Hereâ€™s a version from Brazil. Hereâ€™s one from Argentina. And hereâ€™s one from Paraguay itself.
Hereâ€™s a fun question for Tony Snow: Why might the president and his family need a 98.840-acre ranch in Paraguay protected by a semi-secret U.S. military base manned by American troops who have been exempted from war-crimes prosecution by the Paraguyan government?
I cannot, however, disguise the fact that we adjudicators were extremely anxious when you announced your intention to remove from office one of our most stalwart members, Mr Saddam Hussein. However, we need not have worried. According to a recent UN report, you have ensured that there are now even more human rights abuses in Iraq than there were under Saddam. No less than 10% of those in custody are being physically or psychologically abused. Well done!
What if ALL the FZ-tribute pages would accept a kind of â€œstatementâ€ or something, and all would present in their homepages at the same time? Telling what we think about it, what we suggest/ask for, and why. It could be called â€œWeâ€™re Only In It For The Musicâ€
While I like the idea, I’m not sure how many FZ-tribute pages would actually agree. So for starters: who of you out there with a FZ-fanpage are reading this — and what do you think about the idea? Second: we’d need a clear, well-written text that explains our position in a restrained, respectful manner. My English is “okay”, but for this kind of copy we’d need some collaboration I guess. Third: do you think it’ll make a difference?
