    Hi Bambi Darkness,

    We all know the internet is all talk. Everyone knows that. Look around you. Ask the oracle, if you don’t believe me; ask the man, at the street corner. It talks. It ventriloquizes. It has a million voices. It unleashes the tongue, teasing out secrets you never meant to tell, hatching voices that you never hear in our newspapers. It shouts, rants, whispers.

    Bambi it speaks of great things, splendid plans, the promise of the ages, tragic loves and terrible betrayals and could have been’s.

    It screams with laughter. It chuckles softly to itself. It weeps in front of it’s own reflection.

    It opens up summers long past and memories best forgotten.

    Like a bottle of fine wine, every bottle holds the promise of a great harvest. Every bottle a whiff of other times, other places; every one, from the commonest Liebfraumilch to the imperious 1939 Veuve Clicquit, a humble miracle.

    Magic is the net, the transformation ogf base matter into the stuff of dreams.

    So tell me now as quick as you can spur the wing, why then do you allow knaves and fools who know nothing of this land we call the layman’s alchemy to set our dreams?

    Do you believe we care what tin pot library choose to see or hear? We care not! Do we even care for their Noily Prat halfbakes they hold out as Sancerre ’71? Non!

    How petulant you are my fool to have taken them so seriously, do you see anything jumping up and down here, but you and you alone Bambi Darkness? Non! – a pert, garrulous fellow are you not, cheery and a little brash weren’t you? With a pungent taste of blackcurrant sulker, said the label.

    Not really a wine for keeping. More for nostalgia’s sake. Oh yes, need I tell you. The Sancerre has long since turned vinegary and speaks even less, occasionally sighing thinly over their vanished youth.

    So dear boy whatever were you fighting for, I wonder?

    Silly boy

    I like the pictures. They do show the highlights of the week. And thank you for supporting the Anti Odex club!

    It’s my first time here, usually I just read and never ever post. Personally, I think the BP is to blame for all this. Firstly, they never explain the reason for their decision. We are never ever told, the real reason why they have decided to pull out along with cancelling the internet broadcast of the Olympics. It may or may not be related to the recent NLB efforts to archive blogs. My point is WE ARE NOT TOLD ANYTHING! They could have negotiated with NLB, but they did not even bother. They keep talking about their diplomats, but from what I can see there is no diplomacy.

    All I know is what Darkness Baby wrote here about his thoughts using Sarah Lee’s account. It is really not very much to go by, but something is better than nothing. I will post this throughout the Alumni to inform the others. I believe many have not been informed, like myself. I JUST FOUND OUT TODAY!

    I personally believe he has given a solid reason why he feels it was not done wisely, but I still feel, they should at least sit down and work things through with NLB.

    Thanks Singapore Daily for everything.

    Good After all,

    I believe it’s best to remain calm for the time being, there has been a tremendous amount of speculation and very little has been coming out. Let us just be patient.

    From what I see my bf tells me it is a “lock down,” what it means I don’t full claim to understand, but it’s like zero everything, but there is still alot of things happening.

    Let’s try to be patient and as they request, let us try to keep it off line. I believe that was personally Bambi Darkness boy’s request – we should respect him enough to keep to it.
