Summer day, time to vote for Mica again


in Daily updates, Films and movies

With the summer solstice nineteen days away, it is dazzlingly bright outside and all of Oxford’s green spaces are strewn with sleeping, reading, shirtless, ice-cream eating, ultimate-playing students. The University Parks look like English Bay, in Vancouver, on a sunny summer’s afternoon. While I don’t overly appreciate being irradiated by the sun, myself, I enjoy the spirit that seems to accompany the collective exodus to the outside world: even if I am appreciating it through library windows.

On Mica’s ‘Hives’ video
On a different matter, my brother Mica’s video has made it to the quarter final of the ‘Google Idol’ competition. I highly recommend that people take the time to go vote. You can also leave him comments on his blog. He is winning by a rather smaller margin this time, so people are especially encouraged to have a look.

My post about the previous round is here.

For my part, I am going to read a few more articles before heading off to Anna’s birthday party, way down Abingdon Road. I will also continue to dream of Amsterdam, where I feel increasingly compelled to go for a week or so, once classes end. Ideally, it’s a trip that I can convince someone interesting, with whom I have a stable and engaging relationship, to accompany me on.

If you’re not hung up on ‘fair and square,’ helping the inferior videos in other heats to win is a beneficial strategy for you.

I cannot approve of such tactics. Likewise, I encourage people to vote for whichever video they like best. They can do so once per computer per day.

Out of curiosity, are you going to write anything about how al Qaeda terrorists were plotting to blow up Toronto with three tons of ANFO?!?

Milan June 3, 2006 at 7:03 pm

According to the BBC it was three tons of just Ammonium Nitrate. It would have made much more Ammonium Nitrate-Fuel Oil (ANFO) mixture.

While this is definitely worthy of commentary, there aren’t enough facts out yet. I do appreciate the line the BBC article ends with: “The suspects are to appear in a Toronto area court later on Saturday.” We can deal with the problem of terrorism within the legal system, and in keeping with our values and ideals.

Thanks. You should leave him a comment on his blog.
