RantNo, not "nigger". I hate "the n-word". I also hate "the f-word", "the c-word", "the j-word" and every f-wording some-letter-in-the-f-wording-alphabet-word out there.The thing is ... I have no problem with the word "nigger." Or dick, or fuck, or cunt, or any other word.Now I am sure that someone out there will come and tell me that I have no right ...

MuseWell what a fine that week that was. Three funerals in one week. Parents of people I care about. You realise that you have gone to too many funerals when the guys at the crematorium ask you "weren't you here last week?"But some of the things that happened in the past week got me thinking. A friend of mine was ...

RaveIt's 5am. I am in Dambulla with Navin, and it looks like we are about to get beaten up.It's my fault of course. It always is.A bunch of robe-monkeys supported by about 2000 idiotic cunts of misery decide that it would be a wonderful thing to attack an Islamic Mosque during prayers. If you gave two tugs of a dead ...

ARISE SINHALESE!! MuseSometimes, you can't argue with racism. All you can do is laugh at it. There is a post going around facebook that the Sinhala race is dying, because its birthrate is substantially less than that of the Muslims and Tamils. The numbers are wrong. The facts are wrong. It is just a piece of sensationalist lies that certain groups want ...

Rave"This was a great idea you had, Such." "I had? I thought you had it!" When Navn Weeraratne and I had this conversation, we knew we were on to something good. Something big. Something so awesome and geeky and awesomely geeky it could only be called "The Great Geek Retreat". Of course it came out of a drunken conversation - ...

MusePrabhakaran, they say, was captured in Mullaitivu during the last days of the war along with his family, tortured, and killed. Of course, there is no proof about this. Any evidence is circumstantial. What proof exists - if it exists - is probably locked away in some vault. But the circumstantial evidence is rather strong. I heard the news of ...

I always wanted to be a writer. Not just a writer, but a Writer. A Chronicler of my Age. I read the greats. Hemingway. Thoreau. Kerouac. Runyon. And I dreamed of joining those hallowed ranks. Me and Jon Patterson. We were inseparable those days. And his dream was just like mine. To live the Life. To move out of our ...

MuseA long time ago my FEW called me a robot. She said that I had no emotions. That I didn't feel. I, of course, took that as a compliment. I have always valued rationality over emotions. Mr. Spock was my hero. Even to this day I would rather solve problems through rational discourse rather than screaming and shouting. But that ...

MuseThe hot news is that the LKGOV is compensating people for engine damages caused by the substandard petrol that was imported by the Ceypetco. Now at face value this sounds like an excellent idea. After all, it is only fair that the people who fucked up your car engine pay for the damage they caused. But who's paying for it really? They say ...

MuseOr is it vice-versa? I forget.So Sri Lankan - and perhaps the world - has its first Mayor Monk. Not only did he run for power, but when he was elected he held a temper tantrum fast because The Beast said he couldn't be mayor because he was - you know - a monk. One of those people who have ...

RantSo The Beast walks into Parliament and announces that he is repealing the Emergency Law. Well, not so much "repealing" as much as "not renewing it."But anyway.. YAY! Loud Cheers!! And the clinking of glasses.But it was all oddly subdued. Very oddly.Because - just like everything else this government has done - it was just an eyewash.The Beast said in ...

Rave Everyone's talking about the new hotness. Google+ walked in the door, threw its hat in the ring, and proceeded to do to Facebook - the reigning champion - what FB did to the previous champions MySpace and Hi5. All of a sudden the game changed. Everyone is raving about G+, and everyone wants in on the ground floor. I ...

Rant It is now over a month since the 18th Amendment was passed. And I can finally get my head around writing about it without simply saying FUCK a lot. Isn't that nice? Personally I am not surprised this happened at all. Sri Lankans in general and the Sinhalese in particular are extremely happy to give over control to someone, ...

Rant Recently I had a talk with a friend of mine. Not just a talk. A Talk. Note the capitals. Now for those of you who know me, and for many of you who read this blog regularly, you know that I swear, a lot. My language and topics often go from the blue to the horrifying to the disgusting. ...

Rant FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCKi! FUCK Ranil for being a pansy-assed motherfucker who couldn't create a real and viable opposition! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! ...

Muse A friend of mine nearly fell for a scam a few days ago. It was a quite well done scam, and would have passed through too, if it wasn't for the fact that the young lady was quite vigilant. About two months ago, a guy contacted her on her Facebook account and sent her a friend request. She didn't ...
