the virgin (predictabily) suicides - capitalism gone mad

again:

It intends to launch its first titles in mid-2006 and will simultaneously be exploring partnerships for animation development. Mr Branson said Virgin Comics would "help to launch the Indian comic market and spin it into the west".

so the idea, if i read this rightly, is for virgin to create a market in a foreign country, and then sell it back to the west as something foreign? is it just me that thinks that that is clinically, cyclically, cynical?

oh yeah, and lots of other bad shit happened in the world. 'pachalafaka'... they whisper it all over turkey. either that or they're choking to death with aivian flu!! (NOTE: THIS JOKE IS A BIT OBSCURE AND I ONLY MADE IT UP FOR MY MUM TODAY. PACHALAFAKA WAS A SONG ON THE MUPPET SHOW BOXED SET THAT I GOT FOR XMAS AND FURTHER INVESTIGATION REVEALS IT WAS RECORDED BY SOUPY SMALLS IN THE 60S AS THE B-SIDE TO HIS 'SMALL HIT' THE MOUSE. I JUST DELETED THIS ENTIRE PARAGRAPH BUT I THOUGHT I'D LEAVE IT UP AS A MONUMENT TO WASTED TIME)

i was listening to my compilation 'the hanging tree' last night. i still like it, though it could be shorter. dig it out and give it a listen, and i'll do the same for yours.

anyway, i've printed off the street fighter II' soundtrack and it's awesome, even despite the cheesiness of the end-sequence tunes. the sound effects library at the end didn't quite work because the tracks were too short, but that's easily remedied. so who wants a copy? this is a real offer, and it's a great cd that you will love and cherish and put on at parties when you're trying to be elitest (as in 'most elite'). i might put a page up for it. the internet needs it back.
