Little Lion Man

For some unknown reason, I can't quite get the chorus of Mumford and Sons' 'Little Lion Man' out of my head.



I've been quiet on the blog this week. No particular reason--there are just weeks where there's not a whole lot to say. I've been listening to what other people have been saying however. A football team lost. A soccer team won. Someone famous did something. The Australian dollar went up. The global recession is over, they say. Interest rates are jumping. Someone is gouging us. The world's doing alright now. That weight on your cash is someone who sees opportunity. Apparently before Obama was elected, the sales in guns went up. An election is being rigged. A war needs more soldiers. The place we invaded is in a bad state. Refugees sit in a boat demanding to be taken ashore. The world continues to be cut and cut and on the radio, someone is talking about the most pointless things that they had to do in a job. Another radio station and someone was discussing the social stigma of not wearing shoes. I was stuck in traffic, but it felt like I was stuck in something much worse, listening to this shit. Maybe I'm alone on this, but if you've got a public outlet, and you think it's time to discuss whether or not Kevin Rudd is a nerd, and does that mean that nerds are becoming cool again, then you probably don't deserve to have a public voice.

In fact, you should probably kill yourself.

I love that song.

The gun sales are still ludicrously high over here. Honestly, I'm surrounded by paranoid crazy people.

The Australian economy seems to have held up fairly well - I'm wondering what the difference in banking systems has made?
