Die Antwoord

Back in the ’80s, we had the Thompson Twins

"Doctor, Doctor!" 45 single by Thompson Twins
L-R: Alannah Currie, Tom Bailey, Joe Leeway

Alannah was my idol, and we all had a crush on Tom Bailey.
Fast forward to 2012: Meet Die Antwoord (Afrikaans for “The Answer”) a futuristic rap-rave crew from South Africa who represent a fresh new style called ZEF.
According to Wiki, ZEF is a unique South African style that is modern and trashy and also includes out-of-date, discarded cultural and style elements. (???)
Composed of Yo-Landi (wearing black contacts and T-shirt dress), DJ Hi-Tek (in deformed face mask), and Ninja (in a orange jumpsuit), the trio performed their clubby single, “I Fink U Freeky,” on David Letterman.

That was painful to watch. I honestly can’t finish the clip.
Let’s bring back the Thompson Twins.

Free Ricardo Castro!

This makes me so mad and sad at the same time.
A few years ago I was taking some prescribed medication, I can’t even remember what it was—but twice I had walked out of two SM stores, where the guard followed me outside and asked me kindly if I had forgotten to pay for my item.
I was with my friend Becky. We were talking while shopping and I had walked out of the store without paying. I was so horrified I apologized and quickly paid for the item in the store. And this happened to me twice!
After that I told my doctor to take me off the meds because it was making me forgetful.
This is why I think they should free Ricardo Castro.
Please read on and tell me if you agree.

79-year-old man arrested for stealing chocolates at grocery store

Philippine Daily Inquirer
5:21 pm | Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

MANILA, Philippines—A 79-year-old man was arrested on Monday for allegedly stealing a small bag of chocolate worth P36 at a grocery store in Manila.
Ricardo Castro, a resident of the Madrid Extension in Tondo, claimed that he simply forgot to pay for the pack of chocolate because he was thinking of his ailing son while he was shopping for groceries at the Ultra Mega wholesale and retail mart at the corner of CM Recto Avenue and Antonio Rivera Street in Tondo.
But SPO2 Cody Carmelo, desk officer of the Manila Police District (MPD) Moriones Tondo station 2, said that representatives of the grocery did not buy Castro’s story and filed a theft charge against him before the city prosecutor’s office.
Carmelo told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that the alleged theft happened at around 11 a.m., Monday, inside the Ultra Mega store. Castro, he pointed out, was on his way out of the store carrying a bag of groceries when 21-year-old security guard Wilson Bangug noticed something bulging from the septuagenarian’s back pants pocket.
When Bangug accosted Castro and frisked him, he allegedly found the P36-chocolate inside the septuagenarian’s back pocket. The discovery prompted him to turn over the elderly man to police custody.
“He (Castro) said his son had cancer and that was the reason he was not himself. He said he just forgot to pay for the item,” Carmelo told the Inquirer, adding that the elderly suspect even offered to pay for the item he allegedly stole.
But even after his claims, the complainant continued to press the theft charge against him before the city prosecutor’s office where the inquest officer asked Castro for proof of his son’s illness.
Castro remains detained at the holding cell of the MPD Tondo station.
