    Music

    Music's a pretty important part of lots of people's lives. Now you have a place to talk about it! As an example of the sort of music I like, I will tell you that I bought the albums 'Clap Your Hands Say Yeah' and 'At War With The Mystics' the other day for a grand price of £1 all in. An absolute bargain, both albums are fantastic. I am also going to see The Duke Spirit in London in February next year. Very excited about this, they are a band I love. They know how to rock out, and Leila the lead singer has the most sexy voice. Your turn! What music are you into? Whether it be pop, rock, classical, rap, folk or just banging two stones together, feel free to share the love.

    Music

    I know what you mean, I rediscovered Wicked Game by Chris Isaak when watching X Factor. As much as shows like that annoy me they do pull out some good songs sometimes. Like you'll be thinking "I know this from somewhere..." As for rediscovering songs without the use of the TV, I'm listening to The Flaming Lips again. At War With The Mystics is such a great album, all the way through. I went to see The Duke Spirit live the other week, and it was A-Mazing. I love them so much, although there were two guys standing behind us making rude comments which spoiled it a bit. If you don't like the band, don't go see them! It's as simple as that. I'd been meaning to listen to some of Laura Marling's music a while ago but forgot. Now that she's won a Brit I ought to make more of an effort as I'm sure I'd like it.

    A letter-like Foreign Update

    I was ambassador to Liberty Alliance for a while, before I was forced into the bright light of Real Life and got side-tracked. I don't think I did a very good job of it, but I've always had a soft spot for LA. I'm glad everyone's happy with how things are, even if you are a small region. I have to disagree though, ninjas always do it for me Probably because I don't get on with rum. Sake for me please!

    The Assembly Floor

    Mr Stylianos taps his microphone to make sure it is working before continuing: Now, I can't make hide nor hair of all this outer space stuff. I've got enough to deal with down here! Hah! So I'm giving this discussion over to my fellow minister, Ms. Asteri Planitis. She's been dealing with all these federations and whatnot letting people live on Mars, so I'm sure she'll know what you're talking about far more than I do. I'm going outside with my pipe, enjoy the discussion. As Mr Stylianos leaves, patting his pockets, a thin woman wearing very thin spectacles, hair fighting to escape from it's band, turns to address Ambassador Bergen: Thank you, Mr Stylianos, for your introduction. Before we start the proceedings, Ambassador, I would just like to clear up one matter. In this proposal, point II.A. states that "the Assembly cannot any legislation affecting exoplanetary territories". Cannot what, may I ask? I assume this is merely a typographical error, and that the missing word or words are along the lines of "cannot agree", "cannot pass" or "cannot discuss"? However I would not like for a discussion to take place without truly knowing what we were discussing. Once this trifling mistake has been mended we can get on with the true business of, hopefully, passing your proposal. I for one am currently in support of it. Having spent a great many hours organising the colonisation of Mars by Epaiteian citizens I would not be happy for one whose nation has had no part in the proceedings deciding how our colonies are run. A little out of breath after that last sentence, Ms Planitis sits back down to regain her composure.

    Arcade Championship 2010

    Well done to everyone! I'm very happy with my performance. I shall have to visit the Arcades more often, although I can't see anyone taking Zybodia's crown

    Music

    Noes! It's not hardcore, not really. We can talk about mainstream stuff too. Just to make you jealous, Silvadus, I managed to see Muse at Wembley the other month. Here's a picture: They were so good. What other bands have people been to see?

    Music

    I think it sounds good because it goes back to rap's original intentions, rather than the "Look at all the money and girls in bikinis I have!" it represents these days. It sounds different because everything else sounds the same (which is a really inane statement, but it was the only way I could think of putting it). They seem to have really pushed the rap envelope in Plastic Beach thoguh - Superfast Jellyfish is the most bizarre rap I've ever heard, White Flag is just so catchy, and they even managed to get Snoop Dogg from somewhere, which is pretty great. I don't know his individual music, but I'll still admit he's a pretty cool cat. My favourite Gorillaz rap is still All Alone, back in Demon Days. November Has Come comes close though. I rediscovered R.E.M. earlier to today, which I've been re-enjoying. I had Mr. Richards going round in my head and just had to listen to the album That reminds me, I need to look up what on earth that song is about. Does anybody play in a band? Or just by themselves? I tried learning the guitar when I was about 14 but, er, my fingers were too stubby Couldn't reach all the chords. Maybe things would be different now I'm older and my fingers are longer, but who has the money to go around buying guitars these days? I'm more tempted to try drums or keyboard, anyway.

    Most kind of you.

    Music

    I know what you mean. There's nothing wrong with metal, but screaming for the sake of screaming is just silly. I can only really listen to rap when Gorillaz do it. 'Plastic Beach' has some great rap in it.

    Now that I have a claim on the Regional Map and am a fully paid-up member of the MTO, I would like to lay claim to territory #18.

    Random chat thread

    Is there a thread about music? I can't seem to find one, although I may not be looking in the right place. I just wanted to gloat a little, really: I managed to find 'Clap Your Hands Say Yeah' and 'At War With The Mystics' for 50p each the other day. I'm a very happy bunny.

    I doubt I'd be better, at least your newsletter looks like a newsletter. I'd love to help out in any way though. Just name it and I'm on it.

    The Observer

    This is amazing! I'm so glad you kept the Observer going, Trav-Coch, even in another form. In fact I prefer this new incarnation to my own. Plus, you managed to be consistent with your output of issues, which is more than I managed. If I can help in any way, please do give me a shout. Although I shall be staying away from NS Politics for a good while I would be delighted to be working on the Observer again. I wouldn't dream of trying to usurp you or anything, this is definitely your paper now.
