Weird: The Ups and Downs
Whoa whoa...OK, so I understand that everyone is upset about the Virginia Tech massacre and rightly so; nevertheless, is Cho Seung-Hui's video/photo package actually a "multimedia manifesto"?
Sure, the package used a variety of mediums making it "multimedia"; however, isn't a "manifesto" by definition a political statement of organized intentions and motives? Look kid...America doesn't do ambiguity. Just tell us exactly who made you mad and what they did.
Cho Seung-Hui isn't a criminal mastermind with a fancy manifesto and dark militia, nor is he a statement about the pressures of Asian culture---he's just a screwed up kid! (And let's not kid ourselves, there are lots of them out there) The terrifying bottom line is that it was probably harder to perfect the compression on the video clips than it was to get the guns.
* Let's concentrate on happy things like Bjork's new album and Mr. Posh Spice's Bended Baby Beckham. Damn that man is an empty-headed hunk.
