i saw a video the other day on TV, it was some kind of rap/pop song sung by a guy wearing a strange skull type mask, that looked like that creature from tales from the dead
and he was dancing with some chicks. i want to watch the video again but i can't seem to find it as i don't know the artist.

listening to Kreator - Murder fantasies.
Misheard lyrics as

I WANT TO GRILL YOU
TAKE AWAY YOUR FRIES
IN TORTURE AS YOU SPICE
I WANT TO GRILL YOU
YOUR BREAD I WANT TO FEEL
CREATE YOUR MEAL IN BURGER FANTASIES!

I had a random thought today about all these young celebrities :???: They're so rich and famous and when you read all these news about their glory life you so often think that here's the true happiness. I suppose that a lot of people had such feeling at least several times during their life :)
Don't know why but I thought a lot about the popular music stars who are usually called "the producer's project". For example when you read such articlies like [link removed by moderator] everything looks persfect but at the same time it's clear that Ariana's music is simply a commercial work, not the tru art. I suppose that stars like her understand this fact but how they feel about it? :???: I'm not sure that they feel really happy about their work, except only the money aspect :???:

That is the difference between real music vs commercial crap, the former is stuff you can listen to day in and day out and never feel bored, eg pink Floyd albums versus say the last <insert latest pop band here>
Well its the same about the artists too, they are all part of the instant receipe for the masses. Their fame and their happiness are just as transient as their success

This is where it is getting more common for artists to ask themselves, "Will my music earn me my moolah?" rather than "Will my listeners enjoy my art?"

An Ode to Old Chang Kee
Old chang Kee take all my money!

to unlock the currypuff in me
Old chang Kee take all my money!
in Sotong we trust
it crumbles like rust
Old chang Kee just take my money!


old chang kee curry puffs are da bomb! they are seriously like crack.
i've demolished a curry puff and a spring o and i'm staring at this sotong on stik for a while. i should really eat that later in the day..

Never miss the chance for a selfie - :D

I suspect the crew decided to play along, even though they had suspicion that the bomb maybe fake.

And there had been an Egypt Air - Air marshal on board seem to have been along for the ride to Cyprus - holiday ?

That's not a selfie; he didn't take it himself. You can see both of his hands.
