The Thursday Thrice Deftones concert was amazing. I haven't seen a band play a more complete show than the Deftones did. They played every song I could have hoped for, they even did the Weezer cover of say it ain't so. Thursday was phenomenal too, except one of the mics cut out on the backup vocalists (don't remember his name) and his screaming didn't come across as powerful as it usually does, which is what I love the most, the screaming. We got there just as Thrice was finishing up their set, so I didn't see much of them at all. Go see the Deftones if you ever get the chance.

Pretty soon there'll be a little McDonald's ON everyone....

McDonald's to license clothes, toys

[Executives]...had said they were seeking new ways to capitalize on the largest fast-food company's brand, which is among the best-recognized around the world.

From Reuters, November 14, 2003
CHICAGO (Reuters) - In a bid to expand beyond fast food, McDonald's Corp. (MCD.N: Quote, Profile, Research) on Thursday said it will license its brand around the world in a range of children's products, including clothes, toys, interactive videos and books.

The licensing plan, dubbed "McKids," had been hinted at for months by McDonald's top marketing executives, who had said they were seeking new ways to capitalize on the largest fast-food company's brand, which is among the best-recognized around the world.

The plan includes licensing agreements with companies such as Creative Designs, Hasbro Inc. (HAS.N: Quote, Profile, Research) and Mattel Inc. (MAT.N: Quote, Profile, Research) , among others, McDonald's said.

McKids licensing comes on the heels of McDonald's launch in September of its first-ever global advertising campaign, "I'm Lovin' It." The campaign is the company's first to tie worldwide television advertising to a unified theme.

"The business potential for McKids is tremendous," said Larry Light, the company's global chief marketing officer, in a prepared statement. "It will unify all our retail licensed products under one brand, with one brand look and one brand vision."

McKids will be introduced in the spring of 2004 in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan, China, Australia, Korea and Taiwan, with additional countries to follow, Oak Brook, Illinois-based McDonald's said.

In recent months, McDonald's has seen its U.S. business turn around, with sales posting improvement for seven straight months. Shares of McDonald's were off 12 cents at $26.12 on Thursday morning on the New York Stock Exchange.


I hate you very much

as i was walking up the stair
i met a man who wasn't there
he wasn't there again today
i wish i wish he'd go away.

i still recall the taste of your tears
echoing your voice just like the rining in my ears
my favourite dreams of you still wash ashore
scraping through my head till i don't wanna sleep anymore...

you always were the one to show me how
back then i couldn't do the things that i can do now
this thing is slowly taking me apart
grey would be the colour, if i had a heart

in this place it seems like such a shame
though it all looks different now, i know it's still the same
everywhere i look you're all i see
just a fading, fucking reminder of who i used to be
come on tell me

you make this all go away, you make this all go away
i'm down to just one thing and i'm starting to scare myself
you make this all go away, you make it all go away
i just want something.....
i just want something i can never have.
