Paging Wayne Campbell

Bohemian Rhapsody

Apoligies for being off topic but this video is going down a storm over here in the UK - Gordon Brown getting himself a new one torn:

Note the power of the speech delivered without teleprompter - Obama would do well to take notes :-)

You'll be happy to know that video is also making the rounds in a big way over here in the U.S. as well.

Excellent, can sleep happier now.

Whats with the metallica soundtrack?

Just Cause, Daniel Hannon's thrashing of Brown is topic du jour on several talk radio shows (Hannity, Limbaugh, Levin etc.) as well as cable news programs with Glenn Beck on Fox, as well as more & more conservative blogs !

Hannon is HUGE in the USA today!!!

Maybe Hannon is huge in USA but you missed the main news: Brown is pulling out of the Obameconomics!!!!

The last allies (after Germany unofficially and Czech Republic, officially as hell) dunGed to the gutter the O-genius spendulus.

Brown remained the last one in EU to support this policy but even he withdraws because everyone with half a brain noticed there is no more money to spend SOME 8 MONTHS AGO.

Thank you leader/comrade Brown to catch up. 25 dvds not to your liking I reckon?

My wife is a huge Freddy Fan. I liked the music. They put on a great show, too, the one time I saw them.

I have always been captivated by this song, though as a teen, I rarely bothered listening to lyrics, Queen's "Bohmemian Rhapsody" was an exception. This song introduced me to (at the time) new vocabulary:

bismillah for which the common translation is "In the name of Allah"


Ba‘al ZebĂ»b, the god of the Philistine city of Ekron
aka Beelzebub, an alternate name for Lucifer

I had no clue at that time who 'allah' was, nor did I care. Sadly, it took 9/11 to capture my attention and venture into the depravity that is Islam.

Freddie Mercury was a Persian/Iranian, but he was not a Muslim.

As a prominent gay man, it would have been interesting to hear what he would have had to say about our current situation.
