Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna

Rihanna can be described, according to Wikipedia, as a BarbadianR&B recording artist and songwriter. She can also be described as talented, sexy, infinitely  better than Chris Brown, and able to sell more than 15 million albums and 45 million singles worldwide so far. This latest song with Eminem is strangely addictive despite, or is it because of, Eminem’s foul mouth. For this festive season of good will to all men and especially pretty women, Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna is stuck in my head like bun-bun at the bottom of a pelau pot. I can be heard humming this song all day even in the bank, while in the shower, or driving through floods of unknown height. The lyrics suggest that Eminem is still a bitter man either because he is bitter or bitterness sells. Based on the lyrics from Love The Way You Lie, Eminem’s world is still not a happy world. Eminem, for those who don’t know him, is a modern-day, depressed poet with lyrical talent that will only be too apparent scores of years from now. Here is a sample of why he will be considered great in the future:

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that’s alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that’s alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

I can’t tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there’s a steel knife
In my windpipe
I can’t breathe
But I still fight
While I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right
It’s like I’m in flight
High of a love
Drunk from the hate
It’s like I’m huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I sufficate
And right before im about to drown
She resuscitates me
She f&*%%$#ing  hates me
And I love it
Where you going
I’m leaving you
No you ain’t
Come back
We’re running right back
Here we go again
It’s so insane…..

Amazon’s Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia Page

Sexy Brazilian Two Piece Low Cut Waist Beach Bikini Swimsuit - Hot - available at Amazon - Tattoo and girl not included

Amazon, Stephen king, Wikipedia - One page

There is something I noticed on Amazon only yesterday and that thing is not the bikini shown above but the Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia Page. It’s a Wikipedia page  that is available while browsing at Amazon. The Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia page comes up with the Amazon logo tastefully placed at the upper left-hand corner of the Wikipedia page of the subject being browsed. I cite two example screen-shots, Stephen King and V.S. Naipaul. I think this is a good idea as it will be useful to the buyer and it will also bring much needed funding to Wikipedia. Amazon funding to Wikipedia will reduce the amount of ads from Jimmy Wales, founder of that delightful Britannica-killer, Wikipedia, urging stingy users to donate to Wikipedia, a non-commercial, web-based encyclopedia and brain-replacement/enhancement.

V.S. Naipaul Amazon Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia Page

This shopping-enabled Wikipedia page might have been around for ages (days) but I only noticed them a day or two ago. This might be experimental and may disappear if found not to be very successful but so far I am ecstatic about the merger of money and independent thought.  I was told by a Google developer last year that because of the number of hits Google receives per second some experimental features may only be available for a few minutes for complete testing.

Amazon Bikini - No Help from Wikipedia Needed

Thought I am happy about the added information on authors  Amazon is allowing customers to access without leaving their store, I am a bit concerned about the influence Amazon may have in determining Wikipedia’s content. I have not seen any Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia Pages yet for things such as bikinis and adult toys as Wikipedia may add little to making up a human mind on such purchases.  But Amazon may have had that influence on Wikipedia even before since the content of Wikipedia is determined by the users of Wikipedia and their volunteer-experts.

Krishna Bhatt – The Underclass Lover

Krishna Bhatt's The Underclass Lover

Krishna Bhatt, who I only know briefly through email – I assume it is Krishna Bhatt the author who emailed – asked me to say a few words about his book, The Underclass Lover, and I am happy to do so.

The Underclass Lover is a collection of short stories and I started the first story, The Underclass Lover, late last night. I have to admit it is a very well written story and an interesting one. All the stories are based on the complex social and political developments taking place in the contemporary Nepal. I had to check the meaning of the word underclass since I wasn’t sure my  intuitive understanding was the correct one.  It seems I was mainly correct and if you are in doubt Wikipedia has a good definition here.

The Underclass Lover is 180 pages long and published or self-published by WingSpan Press. The book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It is available in both paperback and Kindle from Amazon but it is strangely not available for Barnes and Noble’s eBook reader, Nook.


These stories unravel the complex social and political developments taking place in the contemporary Nepal, which is trying to come to terms with the violent Maoist war that continued for more than a decade, which a tenuous ceasefire arrangement has put on hold presently; and the carnage that eliminated the whole family of a ruling King. The characters often struggle to live with the dual psychology of the people and their own ambiguity – rendering most of the situations and contents of their life farcical. This book complements the previous successful debut book of Krishna Bhatt: City women and the Ghost Writer.

Here is a brief excerpt from The Under Class Lover:

Pasang also knew that one of his customers was actually
a mistress and not a tenant of the landlord of the house she
was living in, who also was an actress and acted in television
dramas, in very small roles. Since the landlord’s wife had
caught a very debilitating disease, she was not able to fulfill
the demands of her well-built husband, who exercised
everyday and looked half her age. So there was the young
actress in their lives, living in the ground floor of the house
without paying any rent. The actress did not become a wife of
the landlord, though she was living in that house for almost a
decade now. In fact, his wife has cleverly warned the landlord
not to marry the actress as it will invite a property dispute
among them and he too may end up losing some of it.
The actress, being a migrant into the city, at least had…

Stephen King’s Fans Revolt

Full Dark, No Stars has some fans outraged

Stephen King‘s new book, Full Dark, No Stars is generating a major controversy and it has nothing to do with the author but with the publisher’s attitude to book buyers. The publisher, it seems, has decided to price the Kindle version of the book higher than the hardcover version. This pricing strategy is unbelievable as it defies logic unless the logic is to force people to help deforest the planet at a faster rate. I think Amazon reluctantly went with the stupid pricing policy for King’s latest book as it will no doubt tarnish Amazon’s reputation as the king of the best price.

Kindle Price is higher than the hardcover price - why?

I bought the hardcover version of Full Dark, No Stars at $14.90 which is a very reasonable price for a newly released Stephen King hardcover. Some are saying that price is too heavily discounted for a hardcover and the Kindle price is more like what the price of the hardcover should be. What ever the truth is, a Kindle price should always be lower than the hardcover price because that is what Kindle buyers have come to expect and enjoy

one-star reviews as a form of protest

Fans are protesting bitterly and nearly half of the reviewers of Full Dark, No Stars on Amazon have given the book a one-star review in protest of the price since there is no way to give a no-star review. It is unfortunate that fans had little choice in the matter though the book is easily one of King’s best in years. I hope Stephen King will use his enormous influence and banish the pricing culprits responsible for this fiasco  to eternal hell.

Trinidad and Tobago Spies – Spying for Prophetess and Profit


A Trinidad and Tobago Spy Helicopter?

Everybody suspected there was big time spying going on in this tiny country of Trinidad and Tobago but what is even more shocking is that the Prophetess couldn’t see what was going on without all the high-tech equipment. Maybe the intelligence work was not for political gain alone but also sold  to those gunrunners, drug dealers and kidnappers who people always thought was a big part of the old, voted-out partnership. All those helicopters buzzing about and the Blimp peeping into people’s  bedrooms with nice, flashy cameras was not just to satisfy the erotic fantasies of the Master and his Mistress but also for profit. I suspect the people involved in these state-funded, illegal operations have hundreds of millions of ill-gotten US dollars stashed in bank accounts and mattresses around the world and in local financial institutions except CL Financial. Was Duprey and Monteil on the list of those spied on? If so, was Tesheira privy to such privileged information? Seeing how ethical a person she is, I won’t be surprised.  Something smells very rotten in Trinidad and Tobago and I believe he made a statement on the issue at a press conference today. Talk about a bold face liar who will obviously spend the rest of his days in Golden Grove. The people can’t wait.

Fazeer Mohammed Hit For Six

"People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people"

I like conspiracy theories so I was delighted to learn that there are three conspiracy theories concerning the firing of Fazeer Mohammed from CNMG. The first (Theory A) says Fazeer’s phones were tapped and the Blimp was following him around even when he bought doubles or took a piss – not necessarily at the same time though. The intelligence gathered from these intelligent operations was used to make a dotish decision to fire him as he proved to be a political threat every morning. The other theory (Theory B) is that Rambachan – a suspected backside with a big brain disorder – ordered the firing because his favourite movie is V for Vendetta. There is a third theory (Theory C) but it’s so farfetched that there is a greater likelihood of well-endowed, green women from Mars landing in Cedros instead of the United States or Calder Hart returning to Trinidad for a well-deserved rest from all that running and banking. Theory C suggests that Fazeer was hit for a six because his salary was too high so he was let go to help manage the national budget.

Trinidad Newsday Steals a Photo?

Trinidad Newsday, in the Business section today, used a photo from mayarobeach.com without the permission of the owner – me. The unauthorized use of photos is now a  common method of law breaking used by thieves, bloggers, and unscrupulous newspaper editors in the modern world. This unlawful use of the photo might not have been a problem if it wasn’t used in an article discussing the Intellectual Property Rights of local farmers. I am not going to use this blog post to ridicule and embarrass a local daily newspaper that already has been ridiculed and humiliated for firing one of the country’s top columnist for being ethical. I am simply going to state in this blog post how flattered I am that one of my photos was used again with the mayarobeach.com watermark cropped out almost as if it was done by a common thief who is accustomed to hiding the evidence.

I am not complaining as much as I am having fun with the cropping people at Newsday. Maybe it’s not Newsday’s fault as they may have contracted out the Business Newsday service to the lowest bidder rather than the most moral one. Maybe the people at Newsday need to remember that you always get less than what you pay for.
