Back in ’83 when I was a roadie/assistant tour manager/driver/gofer/object of abuse for Johnny Thunders on a tour of Europe, we spent the summer -“midsommarkransen” – in Stockholm, Sweden. I needed a place to stay until I found a sublet, and the company that was promoting Johnny introduced me to a Norwegian keyboard player named Magnus (Or Magne) who had a flat… and a girlfriend he could stay with.
I liked the kid, he was energetic, enthusiastic, and outgoing, and he basically packed a bag, lit out for his girlfriend’s place, and gave me his flat. Kind of amazing. Anyway, he told me he was with a Norwegian group called A-Ha, and I didn’t think anything more of it… until 1985, when I saw this.
After all these years, I still think it’s in the top three best all time music videos along with Sledge Hammer by Peter Gabriel…
…and something I must be forgetting. Anyone else know of a music video that can compare with these two?
Anna Loginova, Russia’s most famous and glamorous female bodyguard, was murdered by a carjacker when her own personal Porsche Cayenne was stolen from her.
This is sad but predictable. Russia has a rampant crime problem, and this is a direct consequence of years under a godless, totalitarian, communist dictatorship. Call it a societal amoral hangover, if you like.
Now that capitalism has taken hold in the former Soviet Union, the have-nots – can-nots, more likely – feel no moral compunction about coveting the property of others to the point of theft and even murder. That’s why Anna’s outfit had such brisk business.
She makes some excellent points in the previous interviews quoted – especially the point about obviously beefy security guys being barred from eateries and such – but she should never have gone anywhere without male backup, in my opinion.
Sometimes a big, buff, and well-trained male motherfucker-of-a-killing-machine is the only thing that will work. Hope some Russians learned a lesson from this… but given that it’s Russia, after all, I wouldn’t bet on it.
Mutant cockroaches from outer space.
Sounds like the title of a SciFi movie.
The co-pilot of a Heathrow-bound plane was dragged kicking and screaming from the cockpit after suffering a mental breakdown while in control of the flight.
He began yelling and “invoking God” as the Air Canada 767 flew at 37,000 feet over the Atlantic. He was held down by other crew members and a passenger, a member of the Canadian armed forces.
The co-pilot then had restraints fastened to his wrists and ankles and was handcuffed to a seat.
The flight from Toronto made an emergency landing in Shannon and the co-pilot, who had been crying and screaming according to witnesses, was taken off the plane.
He was taken by ambulance to a psychiatric ward where he is being treated for a suspected nervous breakdown.
Gee, to bad sport. Hope you get the proper help and all works out fine for ya’.
OH, this is just one of the reasons I’m not to damn crazy (sorry bloke) about flying. Thankfully, this flight landed safely and the gentleman removed. Seeing a flyer of the plane being carted off strapped down, kinda’ makes my stomach queasy. Anyone see the movie “Airplane”? If not, read the rest…it’s similar to the movie, “Airplane”, only real.
Coming back to what I mentioned about not really being a fan of flying. Had this happened were I aboard this flight, this crazy bastard would have screamed over the plane intercom…”I’m takin” this son-of-a-bitch down, you are all going to hell”.
Specifically related to me, he would have been correct in screaming this shit. I am going straight to hell, I just want it to be on my terms, not some fucking loon’s.

This is excellent news!

(IsraelNN.com) Encouraged by their success in breaking through the Egyptian border with Gaza last week, a Hamas spokesman has threatened to gather 500,000 Palestinian Authority residents of the region for a similar assault on the perimeter fence dividing southern Israel from PA-controlled Gaza.
Ahmad Yousef, political advisor to the Gaza-based PA leader Ismail Haniyeh, called the fall of the barrier between Egyptian Sinai and Gaza last week a sign of the start of “a third Intifada.” Speaking with the PA’s Bethlehem-based Maan news agency, Yousef said the next stage in such a campaign could involve thousands of Gazan Arabs swarming the IDF-controlled Erez Crossing between Israel and and the PA in an effort to attract international support.
Meanwhile, Hamas militia forces cooperated with Egyptian soldiers on Monday in closing one of three gaps in the security barrier in the city of Rafiah, which straddles the Egyptian-Gaza border. Barbed wire was strung across a section of the separation wall known as the Brazil Gate; however, the main gate in the area remained open, allowing Gaza Arabs to continue to enter Egyptian towns unimpeded. Last week, when Egyptian forces attempted to close the border on their own, a PA bulldozer knocked a new opening in the separation wall.
The partial border control collaboration comes after Egyptian security forces ordered all stores in El-Arish, bordering the Gaza region, to close as of Sunday. Trucks loaded with goods and supplies were prevented from leaving El-Arish towards Rafiah. The move deprived PA Arabs who had charged into the Sinai from Gaza during the past week of a central economic incentive for their having done so.
You know Yousef, if you people spent as much time trying to build a decent and civilized society, as you do trying “to attract international support“, (which you already have, financially. You get millions and millions from damn near everyone, including your Islamic bretheren) some may even grow to like you people.
Yes Yousef, that includes your Islamic bretheren. ‘They’ don’t even like you, it is the reason they try to kick your asses out of every freakin’ Islamic nation, there is. Yousef, get a clue. That is the reason ‘they’ send you millions and millions and millions of dollars. ‘They’ pay you to stay the hell out of where ‘they’ kicked your asses out of.
By the way Yousef, what happens to all that money, beside spending it on weapons from Persia, the new Tsar of Russia, Vladimir, etc, etc? Yousef you don’t spend it on the people you profess to care about, for if your did, why would they be breaking walls down at the border of Egypt trying to buy FOOD?
Something tells me Yousef, you have Swiss banking accounts that you stuff that money in, while those you say you are devoted to, STARVE!
What a friggin genius. Unreal. Wonder how long it will be before GM, Ford and ohhhh, several others, pay to put a hit on this guy?
