    Oh, it was TermiteFunFest again ? Apparently the Swiss came in last, no surprise there. I still shudder to think that the last time we won this nonsense bloody flaming Celine Dion had to help us. Who would have thought that this foghorn would have a world career with the same godawful kwatsch ? And who would have thought she is still around, doing that very same kwatsch ?

    Panem et circenses for the dumbed down masses, a freak show for people with more enthusiasm than talent and bigger egos than brains for 15 minutes of fame. And how come I write almost the same rant every year ?

    First time I visited Yerp, I was stumbling around Amsterdam and a huge crowd of tourists encircled Leidseplein. A family of street performers ... one fellow, about 20, took a huge swig from a bottle that said LAMPFUIL, then put a match to his lips, and began blowing a huge fireball of flame out of his mouth.

    Two young American women were standing within earshot of me. One was mesmerized. The other was disgusted, both at the Fire Eater (a real minimalist mega-tattooed punk), and at her friend for wasting 0.002 seconds of her life watching this primitive special.

    "Well, that's Show Biz," she said, grabbed her friend's arm, and dragged her away.

    Jeez -- if I want to catch next year's TermiteFest, and I fall asleep on the train, I could wake up in IRAN!!!

    Surprise Surprise! Did you read the lyrics to "Running Scared"? The winning song was about .................. LOVE!!!

    ...for wasting 0.002 seconds of her life watching this primitive ***spectacle***.

    I too have walked down the Leitseplein, lots of good restaurants, cheep beer, good coffee shops with extra menue.

    Now just for laughs what if one country would send something avant garde and radical, like Einstürzende Neubauten in their prime, Diamanda Galas, John Zorn with Torture Garden or something as loud and drastic as The Ramones to this event ? Something so alien, strange and shocking to the termites it would provoke a massive scandal. Now that would be fun ! Maybe we Swiss could to that, we always end up last so there would be nothing to loose anyway.

    Well, Anonymous Anonymous' comment about smallpox is certainly very strange.

    A week before April Fool's Day sometime around 1980, me and a bunch of pals decided to crank out a press release to all the local media from the
Variola Protective Collective

to protest the plans of the World Health Organization to destroy the last samples of smallbox virus (variola) on Earth -- in 2 refrigerators, one in the USA, the other in the Soviet Union.

    We announced a meeting at the University of Massachusetts. We had a biology professor from NYU who was going to talk about the proposed National MicroZoo, after which we were going to show a documentary film, "Something Your Own Size," narrated by Robert Redford. The meeting was scheduled for the evening of 1 April.

    2 local newspapers ran our press release -- but both editors smelled something very fishy about it, made some phone calls, and wrote that as far as they were concerned, the Hampshire-Franklin Variola Protective Collective was a big April Fool's fraud.

    So who the hell is this Anonymous? Were you part of the H-FVPC???
