Musings

Muslim Violence

I know that the worldwide events aren't representative of all Muslims. But, I really don't understand how anyone can whip up a crowd to burn buildings and murder people simply on the basis of a supposedly 'offensive' cartoon or two. It seems to me, more and more, like someone is stirring up trouble deliberately.

Thanks to Jonathon for popping by yesterday. I checked-out his music review blog, Bloody Awful Poetry, today and I commend it to you as a fine example of music writing.

My Velocipede

My quest for sponsorship has gone mad! I've raised well over £500 in just five days. At this rate, by the time I do the ride (14th May) I'll have raised over £8,000. :-)

Muslim Violence:

I can sort of understand it, I once got very cross with someone as they had drawn a big cock on my school bag. I punched him so hard in the eye that it changed colour.....

Of course he had the last laugh as he capitalised on his new oddness and became David Bowie with a string of international musical hits behind him and a big shiny racing car.... I on the other hand was known as "cock bag" from that day onwards.

So there.

Thanks Cock Bag.

Thanks for starting the career of the great Mr Bowie.

hey dude - thought i'd make some money on ebay by selling your home address. I've had a lot of interest from bidders in west London and Bradford. A Mr Faisal Umar Mahdi from Wembley seems particularly excited to get his hands on your address and has made the further request for me to post your picture on the web so that he can print it off and burn it!! Anyway got 500 quid so far and still got 5 days to go, I recon it'll do well. I'll have to buy you a beer with the money.

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get to your blog, like i told Dave, I have been in my own head for awhile, and probably will be for awhile more...

I agree with your comments on the comic. It's just an excuse to get violent, not liek they need to add any fuel to that fire, but yea...
