BLUR ESTAO DE VOLTA

Já sei que nem todos se regozijam quando alguma banda decide voltar a reunir-se e, mais que não seja, dar uma prenda aos seus fans.
Mas, parece-me que a data de validade dos Blur está ainda longe, e a promessa de voltar a estúdio no próximo ano é, no minimo, excitante.
Em 1996 (porra já lá vão 12 anos), tive a oportunidade de assistir a um magnifico concerto dos Blur no Coliseu dos Recreios em Lisboa, e não vejo a hora de voltar a sentir as mesmas emocoes.
Já não falta muito...
Ah, e adivinha-se nova guerra Oasis vs Blur pelo melhor concerto do próximo verão.

CASAMENTOS 3D

Se por vezes não funciona na mesma dimensão porque não casar em dimensoes diferentes.
Será concerteza mais fácil, ou talvez não?

"In a reflection of Japan's obsession with escaping reality, more than 1,000 people have signed an on-line petition to present to the government to establish a law permitting marriage to comic characters.

Comic books known as "manga", animated "anime" films and on-line virtual reality games have become increasingly popular in Japan, with fictitious characters frequently elevated to celebrity status.

Among the most high profile of manga fans is the current prime minister Taro Aso, who recently complained he had not had time to read any comic books since taking office last month.

The on-line campaign for cartoon marriages was masterminded by Taichi Takashita who claimed he was motivated to pursue the unusual change in law because he felt more at ease in the "two dimensional world" than reality.

"I am no longer interested in three dimensions. I would even like to become a resident of the two-dimensional world," he wrote.

"However, that seems impossible with present-day technology. Therefore, at the very least, would it be possible to legally authorise marriage with a two-dimensional character?" A growing number of Japanese "otaku" geeks are spending an increasing amount of time escaping the social challenges of modern-day life by seeking refuge in the "virtual" two-dimensional reality of manga, anime and on-line games.

While single sex marriage is not permitted in Japan, the popularity of the cartoon-human unions was instantly apparent this week as more than 1,000 were enlisted to the campaign.

Among them, one supporter wrote: "For a long time I have only been able to fall in love with two-dimensional people and currently I have someone I really love.

"Even if she is fictional, it is still loving someone. I would like to have legal approval for this system at any cost."
