The Steevieg Collection

Here are some random poems by Steevie "Peanuthead" G as sent by text on various occasions of inspiration:

The symbolic face of the first antelope herd on planet Munchding were shocked by the plethora of carrot flavoured pavement slabs along the road to Ant Bar.

I once met a chap called Pap.
He did a rap about the map on his lap.
But all of a sudden the gap between the cap and him taking a nap blew up like a burnt crap.
It went zap right up the tap like a retarded Jap in a mouse trap.

When the train pulled into Pennsylvain,
it was pissing rain,
just like that time in Spain when Bahrain felt the pain
After Saddam Hussein used the pasta strain to inflict hideous shame upon the goats.

I once met a goat,
no wait was a stoat.
I thought...
Hmm potential coat.
But then it hit my scroat
then jumped on the float
in the middle of the moat,
was hit by a small boat full of retards

The space between the field and the diversified yield
first became known by a chap who wouldn't wield.
He fell off the goat, nuts bitten off by a stoat
and not a thing left in his world but his boat.
But alas he felt grace as he checked his own face
cos the retard has slowed down the pace of the race
to cut lace from the field of disgrace.

A Poem by Liamo

Jelly fire bricks
Don't start quick
But add some sambuka to the mix
And the bridge magnet cartoons bend brishisly

Chavez - an interesting article

President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela recently subsidised cheaper bus fares for poor people in London. Now the man who was once removed from his post in a coup that lasted hours and was backed by the United States is pushing forward with the battle for the moral ground in the third world. The following article describes this interesting policy:

Natalie Obiko Pearson and Ian James, The Associated Press

CARACAS, VENEZUELA - Laid-off Brazilian factory workers have their jobs back, Nicaraguan farmers are getting low-interest loans, and Bolivian mayors can afford new health clinics, all thanks to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
Bolstered by windfall oil profits, Chavez's government is now offering more direct state funding to Latin America and the Caribbean than the United States. A tally by The Associated Press shows Venezuela has pledged more than $8.8 billion in aid, financing and energy funding so far this year.

While the most recent figures available from Washington show $3 billion in U.S. grants and loans reached the region in 2005, it isn't known how much of the Venezuelan money has actually been delivered. And Chavez's spending abroad doesn't come close to the overall volume of U.S. private investment and trade in Latin America.

But in terms of direct government funding, the scale of Venezuela's commitments is unprecedented for a Latin American country.

Chavez's largesse tends to benefit left-leaning nations that support his vision of a Latin America with greater independence from the United States. But he denies the two countries are in a competition.

"We don't want to compete with anyone. I wish the United States were 100 times above us," Chavez told the AP in a recent interview. "But no, the U.S. government views the region in a marginal way. What they offer is a pittance sometimes, and with unacceptable pressures that at times countries can't accept."

U.S. aid tends to be low-profile, constrained by strict guidelines and often distributed through other institutions so that recipients may not know it's from the U.S. government. Venezuela offers money with few strings attached and a personal Chavez touch that aid experts say generates more good will dollar for dollar.

Clay Lowery, the U.S. Treasury Department's acting undersecretary for international affairs, argues that the U.S. plays a larger role than reflected in its aid figures.

The United States, for instance, drove Inter-American Development Bank and World Bank debt relief deals totaling $7.5 billion over the past three years in Latin America, he said.

"Who is the biggest financier of the IDB? The United States. Who is the biggest financier of the World Bank? The United States is. We don't count those," Lowery said. "We're basically engaged on a multilevel, multi-prong approach."

Still, as the Chavez effect gains ground, there are signs the U.S. is responding to the challenge.

The U.S. Navy medical ship Comfort is on a four-month, 12-country voyage to Latin American ports and has already treated more than 80,000 patients with free vaccinations, eye care, dental checkups and surgeries aboard the converted oil tanker.

Greg LeMond

This is a really interesting story about Greg LeMond the triple winner of the Tour De France in an interview with Paul Kimmage in The Times (London). He talks about drug abuse in the sport and his own abuse as a child and how his demons helped him win the Tour.

New Poem

Shrug a bug dog
Who ate a hog?
An old smelly frog
Jumped on a log
Splinter splinter turd face,
Only three toes,
Eat one,
Chop off his mop,

Darfur - The US Agenda

This is a very interesting article which describes why the US is suddenly so interested in the people of Darfur as opposed to Rwanda or even Zimbabwe.

Spiderman 3

I watched this film last night and it is the gayest film since the gays invaded from the planet gay back in nineteen gayty gay!!!!
Whoever wrote the movie is either taking the p1ss or is a pure weirdo because some of it is absolutely ridiculous... "oh you'll always be my friend, my best friend"... I mean who says that, I know it is a film and is supposed to stretch the imagination but nobody is going to believe that, even kids cartoons are not that cheesy.
And as for the bit when Peter Parker/Spiderman becomes 'cool' and messes his hair, who is going to believe that either, seriously!!!! If someone was walking down the streets of New York like that they would probably be arrested or beaten up.
Even the action was ruined by the silly English reporter who's lines were obviously scraped off the bottom of a barrel from 1923 or the sign that read "Spiderman come and get us"... sorry to ruin this film on anyone but they already wrecked it themselves. I thought Spiderman 2 was bad but this takes the rabbit!
How can this be the biggest grossing movie weekend in US history?

The Killers, RDS Dublin 27/02/07

Brandon Flowers is a handsome lad, his dress sense is original and awesome in my opinion. The stage decor was cool, kind of a cross between Moulin Rouge and Las Vegas cabaret. The lighting was awesome, lots of gold, silver, red and green.

The Killers are an awesome band, their music is great but my word are they bad live. They played all their hits and some others, one song that I never heard before that sounded like a mix between a 90's rave and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. So far, so good.

However, not once did they add anything extra to any of their songs, there was nothing special about this as a live performance as opposed to just listening to them on my iPod.

Brandon Flowers has no stage presence at all, no charisma and nothing that makes him, as the lead singer of the band, say to the audience 'I own you'.

Overall it was good to see them but not for €60 and I would give it a 3/5 rating.

The final film screen at the Dublin Film Festival last night was Sparkle, a British movie. It was really good. A nice movie, Amanda Ryan and Shaun Evans play their parts really well and Bob Hoskins is great as the lonely old man.

The storyline is awesome and throws up some surprises along the way. The writers have just the right mix of comedy, emotional catalyst and character empathy to give the movie a lot of credibility as well as enjoyment.

Looking forward to seeing it on general release.

Do you know what I hate? Like I mean really really HATE!!! People who say sorry when they get into a lift that you just got out of, like they whisper it. I think it is only an Irish thing, they do it in doorways too. What are they apologising for? That they were waiting for a lift???? That they are sorry for being outside the lift when you were leaving… what what what???? Don't say sorry.

Another thing... people who answer the phone and say "you have the wrong telephone number", who says 'telephone' anymore? especially in that context?!?!?!?!

The Matrix

I watched The Matrix last night for the first time. As a scientist and science fiction fan I found the concept to be interesting and a good take on the robots take over the earth in the future or the life we live is all a dream theme that we’ve seen in Terminator and Total Recall before. What I didn’t like about it was the dialogue, a little bit too nerdy for me. Its like the people who wrote it are 100% geekazoid and actually believe in the story that they have written. Apart from that the producers, directors and special effects people have done an awesome job and overall I liked it.

Rating 3.5/5

Matrix Reloaded:
This was pretty rubbish for the first half but I said I would give it a chance. Then the second half, apart from some of the dialogue again, was excellent. The action scenes were pretty damn good and made it worthwhile.

Rating 3/5
