I haven't spoken to Alvin today. I wonder what he's doing. It could be anything. 

In the film Adaptation, Robert Mckee explains at his Story seminar:

"People are murdered everyday. There's genocide. War. Corruption. Every fucking day somewhere in the world somebody sacrifices his life to save somebody else. Every fucking day someone somewhere takes a conscious decision to destroy someone else. People find love. People lose it. For Christ sake, a child watches a mother beaten to death on the steps of a church. Someone goes hungry. Somebody else betrays his best friend for a woman. If you can't find that stuff in life, then you, my friend, don't know crap about life. And why the fuck are you wasting my precious two hours with your movie. I don't have any use for it. I don't have any bloody use for it!"

I'm guessing Alvin is still in bed. It's either that or playing Playstation. 

Is this blog wasting your time?

About two weeks ago, that beautiful Senegalese-American with the voice of a troubled sexual angel, Akon, performed to a packed Rod Laver Arena.

The kids went in droves to see him. Of course they did. It's AKON!

The next day Australia and the world was shocked in learning there was a brawl. One young man talked to the camera describing the unfortunate events and displaying the scabs and scars on his face. He had been repeatedly kicked.

The world's heart went out to him, that poor kid. What had he done to deserve this?

As Alvin watched the news story he laughed.

"That's what you get for liking Akon." He said.
