NZ Herald on Kim Dotcom’s Internet Party

A technology writer in the New Zealand Herald on Kim Dotcom’s latest PR stunt:
There’s a lot at stake, ignoring these issues at a political level could have impacts that’ll reverberate throughout New Zealand’s future.
No sub-editors were harmed in the production of this column.

In other Kim Dotcrim-related news, Stuff has a review of Kim Dotcom’s new album by Jack Tomlin who has bravely listened to all of it. He is negative, frankly. I have listened to two songs, if that is the right term, from the album and can report that they are Scheiße. Tomlin links to the vid of “Live My Life”, which features three hot babes getting excited about a nerdy geek for no discernible reason, undressing whenever they see him. This is so not the story of my life.

The vid also contains ice cubes rolled over cleavage, ice cubes rolled over lips, and a Scheiße-load of other music-vid clichés from the 1980s. Plus some scenes of toast, which to their credit Duran Duran never thought of. 

The album is a free download, which I suppose is one way to stop the pirates.

His sophomore album will be called Can't Buy Me Talent.

A toaster does make an appearance in the appalling promo for Billy Idol's dreadful White Wedding, but at least it has the decency to explode; about 2:39 if you care.

Ten points for that last sentence :)
