Danish media will follow Rupert Murdoch on micropayment

Murdoch wants his web sites to charge for content following the success of Wall Street Journal - a global niche media. The two big Danish media houses, Berlingske Media and JP/Politikens Hus, desperately agree with the man. They are looking for an online business model and it better not include them having to work harder, make better web content or open their sites up to the social and blogging web (admittedly, is semi doing this).
"(...) you can confidently presume that we are leading the way in finding a model that maximizes revenues in return for our shareholders... The current days of the Internet will soon be over."
Uuuhh, tough guy... I do not think it is the current days of the internet, that will soon be over... but the current days of news business.

(lyrics + stream) The Streets - He's behind you, he's got swine flu

The Streets - He's behind you, he's got swine flu - lyrics:
He's behind you,
he's got swine flu
Make a sacrifice for societies sake,
(no) decapitate your mate!

You started sneezing,
I could see that you were freezing
in the heat of this really, unbelievable evening.
The streets were all empty but for overturned cars
bellowing smoke from the sparse roads clothed with scars.
The brain dead in face masks wandered, Im stretched
sizzling bacon from beyond the farfetched,
Ive never hurt my friend till the very burning end
is what flirtingly I said to my best friends head.

Verse 2:
The story then was told
it got gory it unfolded
broadcasters blasting out stories of the poorly,
I dont advocate anarchy in any way,
but i saw him scratch a rash
and i had to grab an axe.
Weve all known each other since the groans of our mothers,
and throwing with our brothers little stones in the river
the fact that my man might not actually expire
caused me some ire while i hauled him on the fire

Theres something that I need to share with you all,
I cant go on lying Im developing sores,
Im turning Im burning up Im turning back bro,
Ill hold them up while u turn and run.

Watch the video using classic zombie footage:

Police Stop Bicyclists To Give Them Hugs And Helmets

It's a clip from a traffic campaign in Aalborg (Denmark), to get people wear helmet when cycling! The film was made with real people, real cops and real love.

Comments from the Huffington Post:
- Did anyone else notice that all the cyclists were men? Yep. I'm really wondering if this was supposed to be a "Wear a Condom!" ad instead. ;-)

- Look at those socialists caring about each other! That's why they're so unhappy. Oh wait...

- U.S. cops would shoot you in the leg and THROW the helmet at you while you were sprawled on the pavement.

- Hey, our cops give out free hugs, too! They're just really tight ones from behind and around the neck...with a baton (for extra love)!

- Damn socialists - making the world safer and friendlier!! Surely will lead to the destruction of society's fabric and the homosexualization of babies.

Danes might be more friendly and openminded, but Americans are more fun!
