Salad was a nineties UK indie group composed of Marijne Van Der Vlugt (vocals), Pete Brown (bass), Rob Wakeman (drums), and Paul Kennedy (guitar). Previously, Marijne, from The Netherlands, had been a model and an MTV Europe jockey. She's still around somewhere, and the song Yellow Horse, from the group she's with now, Cowboy Rider or sumpin, was used as a soundtrack for the Grey's Anatomy series. Drink the elixir is probably their biggest hit, from the 1995 album Drink me.

Aztec Camera were a Scottish new wave/indie band formed in Glasgow in 1980. During their lifespan, which lasted till 1995 or so, they went through a gazillion of musicians and contributors (including Ryuchi Sakamoto and Paul Carrack), the only constant member being the singer, Roddy Frame. This single, Still On Fire, is from the 1984 album Knife.

Roddy Frame looks terribly gay in this video. I just hope his real name wasn't Pee Wee Herman.


P.S.: and those trousers! Yuk!

Tara and John Creamer met at college, where he was captain of the football team, and she never missed a game. "Her life, in her eyes, was perfect," said her sister, Liz Waldo. "She had a tremendous life in her short 30 years. Her smile was radiant. It was her most beautiful feature."

Tara and Liz grew up as two of the four Shea sisters in Westfield, Mass. "The four girls looked on ourselves as four sturdy legs on a table," Mrs. Waldo said, "and now we're down to three wobbly legs." (Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on December 24, 2001.)

Tara K. (Shea), 30, of Worcester, a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11, died Tuesday, in New York City. She leaves husband of 7 years John J. Creamer, her 4 year old son Colin J. Creamer and 15 month old daughter Nora A. Creamer. She also leaves her father James F. Shea of Westfield, 2 brothers Kevin J. Shea of Omaha, NE, and Brian J. Shea of Granville, MA, 3 sisters Maureen A. Shea and Kellie P. DiFilippo both of Reading and Elizabeth M. Waldo of Westfield and many nephews and nieces. She was born in Westfield, her mother was Colleen M. (O'Connor) Shea who died in 1995. Mrs. Creamer was a 1993 graduate of the University of Massachusetts. Mrs. Creamer had been Planning Manager for TJX Corporation in Framingham. She had been actively involved with several charitable organizations the TJX Corporation including the American Cancer Society and Christmas Relief for the Homeless. A Memorial Service will he held Saturday, September 15th at 1:00 PM in Our Lady of the Angels Church, 1222 Main Street, Worcester. O'Connor Brothers Funeral Home, 592 Park Ave., WORCESTER, is directing the arrangements. The family requests that flowers be omitted and contributions made to the Creamer Children's Scholarship c/o Worcester Credit Union, 520 West Boylston Street, Worcester, MA 01606

I could leave it at that. And something tells me I actually should. Something tells me I... may dishonor the remembrance of so many innocent who were brutally and for no reason murdered by islamic terrorists on that fateful day, now eight years ago.


... not.

So I proceed, and it feels like walking on thin ice.

Eight years later, on the spot where it all happened, there should have been a 1,000-meter high Towering Wonder of modern architecture, a Testimony to Defiance in the face of blind bloodthirsty sheer madness, a testimony to the confidence, technological prowess, ingenuity, courage and strength of a nation that has spread so much good over the world, spilling the blood of hundreds of thousands of its soldiers in doing so...

But instead there's just this:

Eight years later, in the same city that back then was visited by the malign hatred of mentally derailed adherents of a wicked belief system, who were consumed by the realization of their own impotence... the New York City council overwhelmingly approved a resolution calling for two muslim holidays for the city's schools...

And eight years later, a man whose father AND stepfather were muslims, who attended muslim schools in his youth, who has Hussein for middle name, and who is hellbent on leading his country to financial ruin... is President of the United States.

I might have left it at that, even knowing that he has appointed as Secretary of Homeland Security a woman who has proclaimed that we should not refer anymore to 9/11 as a terrorist act, but as a "man-caused disaster". I possibly would even have left it at that, when on the commemmoration of this heinous day he willingly spread confusion by not naming the source of evil, instead saying that the US 'would never falter in going after Al Qaeda' (the name of which he spoke only once), which is something akin to Winston Churchill saying in June 1940, after having been ingloriously chased from the beach at Dunkirk, that Great Britain would never falter in going after Von Rundstedt's Heeresgruppe A.

But I can't leave it at that, knowing that just days ago he thought it necessary to praise American muslims for their "enrichment of the nation's culture":

"The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country..."

Go tell that to the relatives of the Pentagon staffer above.

I am sorry for... the inconvenient use... of a photograph of someone who was once a loved father, husband, child, brother, friend.

I ask for forgiveness for doing it, and I'm doing it only because I cannot bear the absurdity and insanity of our current situation anymore, and because ... I sense that not addressing the real issue here, not naming the real evil, not identifying the REAL ENEMY... which is islamic extremism and possibly islam itself... means to dishonor these innocent victims even more.

Very quick post. It's the 500th anniversary of John Calvin, a protestant reformer second only to Martin Luther. He was born Jean Cauvin in 1509 in Noyon, in Picardy in northern France. No time to elaborate, but the basic tenet of Calvin’s theology, aptly called Calvinism, is that God created human beings for "personal" fellowship. This led Calvin to conclude that all wisdom comes from knowledge of God and of ourselves, so that in knowing God, we know ourselves and vice versa. Calvin also stressed that what we know about God is strictly limited to what He explicitly revealed, so our chief preoccupation should not to be to waste time on theological speculation, but rather try moral edification.

Have I got you this far? Okay. Now, Dordrecht. Dordecht is an important city in The Netherlands. Not as important or well-known as, say, Utrecht, but not exactly a small town either. Think what St.-Louis is for the US, for instance. In Dordrecht they commemmorate Calvin's birthday this year. Why? Well, the Dutch are Calvinists. Or used to be.

The city of Dordrecht ordered a Moroccan-Dutch artist, Aziz Bekkaoui, to craft a piece of art:

The fact that it resembles the Kaaba in Mecca is purely coincidental. That these doofuses walk around it in white clothes just like muslims on a hajj is coincidental too. Not.

I, Outlaw Mike, live in Europe, the world's greatest Open Air Lunatic's Asylum.


PS: I have to get back to work immediately. Actually, I DO NOT have time for this. Not in the middle of the day.

Two more Dutch soldiers fell in Afghanistan, bringing the death toll for The Netherlands to 21 in that theatre.

On Sunday, September 6, Corporal Kevin Van de Rijdt (26, photo left) fell in a firefight near Deh Rawod, Uruzgan province. He was a member of the Commando Corps based in Roosendaal, southern Holland. In Uruzgan, together with his colleagues and troopers of the Marine Corps, he belonged to special unit Task Force 55.

On Monday September 7, 44 year old Sergeant Major Mark Leijsen (photo right) died when an IED exploded near the convoy he was riding in. Three Dutch troopers and an Afghan translator were wounded in the same attack. The explosion took place at 2pm local time near the forward post of Tabar, around 9 kloms north of Camp Holland. Sgt. Major Leijsen, of 101 Engineer Battalion from Wezep, The Netherlands, was a member of an OMLT (Operational Mentoring and Liaison Team) training an ANA unit. His OMLT Team took part in Operation Ghat Mahy, meant to gain control of the western part of the Deh Reshan area.

R.I.P. for these brave troopers. My thoughts and prayers go out to Kevins and Marks families and loved ones.



A BNP video, via Vlad Tepes' blog:

... The bloodless genocide and ethnic cleansing of the British people and culture continues apace with the latest example being the ripping up of a century old Christian cemetery to make way for a mosque in Manchester. The grave desecrations, being carried out with a large Komatsu earthmover in the graveyard of the St John the Apostle and Evangelist church at the corner of Holmfirth Street and St Johns Road, is part of the re-opening of this nineteenth century church as the Dar-ul-Ulum Qadria Jilania Islamic Centre. A sign on the door says clearly that the Islamic Centre is already open for prayer — showing that by Islamic centre the colonisers actually mean mosque.

The conversion of this church (founded in 1845 on a site donated by Sir J. W. H. Anson) into a mosque has been made possible by the displacement of the local indigenous British population by waves of Third World immigration into Manchester.

As this policy gathered pace under successive Tory and Labour governments, the numbers of Third World colonisers grew to the point where they have now totally displaced the indigenous population.

As there were no more white British people in the local area, the Grade II listed status church closed down — only now to be re-opened as a mosque.

This church — formerly the largest Church of England parish in Longsight, was the only one in the area with a graveyard.

These Christian British graves — the only remnant of the now ethnically cleansed British people in the area — are obviously offensive to the Muslim colonisers, who have brought in the earthmoving machine to smash up the gravestones which are being literally crushed to rubble.

St John the Apostle and Evangelist church is a real time history lesson of what will happen to Britain unless the insane multicultural Lib/Lab/Con genocidal policies of mass Third World immigration are not only brought to an end, but reversed...

I don't care anymore whether the BNP is "racist" or not. It is a non-issue to me. This is about survival. Besides, ever since I experienced how my party was smeared without a chance to defend itself, I have become highly suspicious of any allegations against the BNP.

While much of Flanders, Belgium's northern region, is rather boringly flat, there's some regions were a modest relief lends the landscape sometimes surprising grace and beauty. One such region is called the Heuvelland, in the south of the province of West Flanders. The photo shows the village of Loker with is typical steeple-less church (which reminds me of English countryside churches).

The slumped hill on the background is the Kemmelberg, a 156m high hilltop dominating the area. The pleasant scenery hides the fact that under it, there's a gigantic bunker complex built by the Belgian Army in the fifties. This command bunker was to be NATO's nerve center for the Benelux (Belgium-Netherlands-Luxemburg) in case of a Soviet invasion during the Cold War. It was in use till 1995, and is scheduled to open this very fall as a tourist attraction, much like the UK's underground facility in Troywood, Scotland.

As much as I like the Heuvelland (literally Hill Country), I still prefer the Ardennes for hiking, a favorite pastime on those rare occasions when there is time. Scheduled for this fall is a trek with some good friends in Belgium's "extreme" south, along the Semois river. For those who would like to check out the area, I recommend the places on this map.

The village of Poupehan.
