Lookee ... !! I was shopping for something completely different this afternoon, and look what I found ... ! I don't normally keep tabs on when these things come out ... I can hear all the songs on Youtube as soon as they're chosen anyway, and it's always a wonderful surprise when I suddenly come across it somewhere. Makes it a special day. ;-)
It almost makes me not feel sad that I haven't been to the Netherlands since forever ... look what they have in the Netherlands ... ;-)
From this blog. Credit where credit's due.
In other news, Terje Håkonsen either is a selfish idiot, or he did a really really good impression of one on the Daily Review tonight. >:-(
And some sad animal news - 205 cats to be put down in Drangedal. Don't get me wrong, it's the right thing to do, bring out the syringes ... because these animals are suffering, just look at the top photo in the article, he's cuddling the cat and it obviously has some kind of eye infection or something. It needs medical care ... and probably the rest of the ... pack? ... is diseased too. Not to mention inbred. What's so sad is just that this is happening at all ... that situations like these are allowed to develop this far. I mean, the guy has 210 cats ... !! Couldn't the authorities have foreseen this, I don't know, about 100 cats ago? o_O Bad situation all round.
But even worse is the news from Mississippi, about the dead sea turtles washing ashore. Aw, these photos just break my heart. I has a sad. :-( Not to disparage cats or anything, but let's be honest, there are plenty of cats around. There are far too many, actually. And they don't really belong in our fauna anyway. But these turtles are right where they should be, and even there so many of them can't live safely. These are Kemp's Ridley turtles too, they are so badly endangered. Aw. :-( Fingers crossed that these are just normal deaths, and it just looks like a lot because the population is really rising ... but for me at least it's kind of hard to believe that, considering what's going on in those waters at the moment. Humans suck. :-(
