  1. I kinda liked Daft Punks first 2 cds, if only in the car. Their new one is getting slaughtered though in many places. eg >>>>>


    LCD Soundsystem's recent single Daft Punk Is Playing at My House was witty confirmation of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo's unique hipster cachet. But LCD Soundsystem may wish they'd chosen another talisman of cool once they hear Human After All.

    Apparently knocked off in just six weeks, Daft Punk's third album sounds like it took six days. Six short days. With long lunches. When these tracks were leaked onto the internet in January, some fans assumed they were bogus, and they do indeed sound like the work of lacklustre imposters. Previous album Discovery had its flaws but at least its ultra-brite MOR homages showed vision. Human After All simply recycles a handful of familiar production tics - vocoders, processed rock guitars, snub-nosed beats - to the point of inanity.


    Apart from the title track's euphoric burble-and-grind and The Brainwasher's acid-house villainy, Human After All is a joyless collection of average ideas stretched desperately thin. If Daft Punk played this at your house, you'd chuck them out.

  2. Tabloid stuff perhaps but...


    "Abortion rates are falling, but not among the young. In 1990, Japanese women under 20 accounted for 29,675 of the country's 466,087 abortions. By last year, despite being a much smaller part of the overall population because of the decreasing birth rate, minors had 40,475 of the 319,631 abortions performed in Japan."




    How do those numbers compare to other countries.

  3. You know its all so easy for us to say how stupid people can be, but people like my father who is new to computers, new to email and the like - they can easily be mislead... at least to open mails and the like. I think lots of people come to the internet either completely distrusting it, or the complete opposite. Both bad mistakes.
