    Further to my earlier post....

    ... this was the amazing, touching, incredible reaction to the passage of marriage equality legislation in New Zealand's parliament last night. Wonderful.

    Funny, smart, passionate speech on same sex marriage from New Zealand MP

    Last night New Zealand became the twelfth country in the world to legislate for same sex marriage and Maurice Williamson MP delivered this great, entertaining speech just before the new law was passed. Watch it.

    This is the leader of Australia's Conservative opposition

    You might remember Tony Abbott from that time a while back when the Australian PM Julia Gillard gave him a verbal smack-down for being a sexist asshole. Well, he's still an asshole. And a weird, childish one at that it would appear.

    Gung Hei Fat Choi, Celine Dion

    Here's a clip of entertaining nutcase Celine duetting in Mandarin on Chinese TV. It's hard to know on the clip for sure, but I suspect she's lip-syncing to her own vocal here, but even so, fair play to her. Of course Dolly only knows what it sounds like to a Mandarin speaker (any Chinese readers?) but the audience certainly seem impressed. Well, they do when she first starts and there's a "spontaneous" bust of applause (assuming there isn't a platoon from the People's Liberation Army behind them with bayonettes!), though at the end when the camera cuts to the aged, grumpy looking crowd they seem decidedly less impressed!

    Though all that is really an aside. The real star of this clip is what Celine's duet partner, sporano Song Zuying, is wearing. The one sleeve/wing thing is hot!

    Great Thai anti-smoking ad

    I have had a long, unedifying, and complicated relationship with the dreaded weed. I've been a smoker more often than a non-smoker for the past twenty five years or so. Oh I've had good long periods of non-smoking, and there have been times when I'd have laughed at you if you'd suggested I'd ever smoke again. However I've learned not to be so smug. The last time I ran the marathon I met a friend on the street fifteen minutes after crossing the finish line and asked him for a cigarette. I smoked for the next year. My last bout with smoking was very recent. When I was in Australia in November I ended up smoking again - something to do with sunshine and hot weather and holidays. I never want to smoke more than when relaxing in the sun with a glass of crisp white wine. (what's that about?) And I smoked like a bleedin' squddie till Christmas. Thankfully, giving up (again!) has been easy - perhaps I wasn't back smoking long enough to be completely re-enslaved - but like I said, I've learned not to be too smug. I'm only ever one cigarette away from being a smoker. And I am a great smoker! I mean, I am an all or nothing kind of smoker. Either I'm completely a non-smoker, or I'm smoking thirty a day. There is no middle ground, part-time, only-when-I'm-out, just-at-weekends smoking for me. I'm either not smoking, or I'm smoking at breakfast. And yet I still look this good. Amazing, right?

    Anyway, here's a really simple and effective anti-smoking ad from Thailand.

    (thanks Ally)

    Portraits of Albanian Women Who Have Lived Their Lives As Men

    Photographer Jill Peters photographed "burneshas" in the mountain villages of Albania. Burneshas are women who have lived their lives as men, often from an early age, in order to avoid the strict codes that govern female lives as property of husbands (often arranged marriages with much older men), and assume the "privileges" of being male.

    "The freedom to vote, drive, conduct business, earn money, drink, smoke, swear, own a gun or wear pants was traditionally the exclusive province of men. Young girls were commonly forced into arranged marriages, often with much older men in distant villages. As an alternative, becoming a Sworn Virgin, or ‘burnesha" elevated a woman to the status of a man and granted her all the rights and privileges of the male population. In order to manifest the transition such a woman cut her hair, donned male clothing and sometimes even changed her name. Male gestures and swaggers were practiced until they became second nature. Most importantly of all, she took a vow of celibacy to remain chaste for life. She became a "he". This practice continues today but as modernization inches toward the small villages nestled in the Alps, this archaic tradition is increasingly seen as obsolete. Only a few aging Sworn Virgins remain."

    "This narcissistic parasite..."

    There are so many gems in this North Korean propoganda film about the eveils of Western clebrities and consumerism that it's hard to pick a favourite! It's also hard to argue with some of the succinct descriptions of various celebrities like "narcissistic parasite" Paris Hilton, or "no talent at all" Katie Price, or Tyra Banks who "has a talk show where she pretends to be concerned about people's problems" but really only serves her need to "talk about herself". Ha! 

    (thanks Máirtín)
