Band Aid Dilemma

I gave a half-assed recommendation to the new Band Aid version of "Do They Know It's Christmas?" on the last playlist. And it's been bothering me ever since... It just sounds insincere and a bit pompous.. and yet it's for a good cause so I can't give it a good trashing.

But it seems I'm not alone in this crisis of conscience. This hysterical website sums it up:

You want this record to succeed, because you feel for the plight of the refugees in the Darfur region of Sudan and this project is funding aid projects on their behalf. However, you hate this recording and feel your musical ego looming and refusing to be bruised.

The answer?

Buy as many copies of Do They Know It's Christmas by Band Aid 20 as you can afford. Destroy them in amusing ways, on camera. Send us the pictures.

Charity. Violence. You know it makes sense

  2. أبو حفص... لم أستخدم هالو هذه المرة، والصورة تتحرك بروحها في موقعها الأصلي وأخذتها كما هي

  3. INDEED...!

    OFF The Topic: el-jaw eyanen, or bas me elly a7eb elmo6ar..?!


  4. I miss Kuwait.
    Its been raining here every day for about 2 months now..
    This place is too bloody green. Everywhere you look, forests and greenery!
    I miss seeing yellow.

Keep it clean, people!
