Doubting anybody else will haha but is anybody else getting tickets to see the Slipknot and Metallica concert?
I HAD planned on it. But I broke my glasses and had to replace them.

Might see if my cousin can get me a ticket and I will pay him back next fortnight.

But it is funny. I got a ticket to RHCP for my birthday and I was saying on the bus home afterwards I had now seen 3 of my top 5 bands, being Rammstein, Disturbed and now RHCP. Said I was kicking myself as I had missed the other 2 over the past few years. Metallica and Slipknot. 2 days later they announce a tour together.

Sad day,right wing redneck,hope he suffers in jail.
I have no concern for what happens to him. He isn't the problem. He is the symptom and the disease is the tidal wave of Islamophobia that has engulfed our world since 9/11, aided by the shit-stains who have rode it for political gain. Jail for him would be good. But I'd also like to see jail for Cheney and Bush and Blair. Add Abbott and co. But I be greedy. I have shed a few tears today and it takes a lot for me to do that. On a side note. How good was Jacinta?

was reading some comments about the NZ shooting and some bloke says something about shooter being white trash evil dog, why is it when people are abusing others they refer to them as Dogs ? Dogs are probably the friendliest and most loving animals/creatures on the planet .
You have obviously had no experience with wild dogs.
Jack London I think, wrote a book "The Call of The Wild". A great insight to the world of dogs

Sorry, it was my error.
I misheard what Jacinda Arden said.
She said Tarrant was not on a watch list.
NZ will be wanting to kick all the australians out of the place after this. Lucky they're building a new jail in Grafton. Where this piece of white trash hails from

I'm not hugely into NFL but I watched Dimma's interview with Gerrard and he mentioned Bill Belichick so I looked him up and saw a really good 2 part doco on youtube about him. Well for the last couple of days I've been watching some excellent doco's called a Football life, there are heaps of them on youtube. Even if you're not a big NFL fan, they are very human stories that a worth a watch. Just thought I'd share, enjoy !!

Ironic you should cite London, given he was a white supremicist.
Interesting you call him a white supremicist......I always thought he was ahead of his time being an active socialist and unionist in turn of the century America. I know he was called out for being a racist because of his views on the Chinese taking over the world (which in fact may come to pass) A view I believe that was pretty common in those times, particularly to people who were exposed to them during the gold rush.

If Dimma could become the AFL's Belichick that would be amazing.

Sadly, I know where you're coming from. What a world we live in now.

He was a mass of contradictions. He was a socialist but also a racist. Opposition to Chinese immigration in California was not based on some intuition that China would later become a super-power (it was anything but then!) but, like the contemporary push for "white Australia", was based on racial doctrines which were pretty hegemonic then. So, yes, his racism was "pretty common in those times" and the combination of socialism and racism was not uncommon in Anglo-Saxon countries (Henry Lawson is another example). "White supremicist" is a bit of an exaggeration I admit. The early Labour party also supported the White Australia Policy. In fact, until the 1960s the only political party in Australia which didn't was the Communist Party.

It hasn't really. I'm old enough to remember when hating on the Muslims wasn't even a thing and when racists focused exclusively on "the Asians". Even the Middle Eastern terrorism that scared people back in the 1970s wasn't seen as being Islamic, for the simple reason that it wasn't. The organisations that used to hijack airplanes and stuff back then all described themselves as "Marxist", which means they were atheists. They talked about "imperialism" rathjer than crusades and "liberation" rather than Jihad - their main inspiration being the Vietcong. A lot of this stuff falls under the category of what Eric Hobsbawn called "the invention of tradition". A good example is the hostility to gays by fundamentalist Islam. This is in fact incredibly recent as the Middle East was historically tolerant of homosexuality to such an extent that prominent western gays in the 1950 and '60s used to hang out in North Africa. How this all changed is very complicated and not something I can explain without writing a massively long post, but if anyone's interested I'd recommend Tariq Ali's book "A Clash of Fundamentalisms".
