At home there are seventeen-year-old boys
And their idea of fun
Is being in a gang called the disciples
High on crack, totin a machine gun

The telly actually had the cheek to interview one of these ''rioters''.
He said it is a new culture called,''agressive shopping'', where everyone helps themself.
He said it is a good thing ,because all the different gang members call a truce and they all work together.
(A bit like that corporate team building stuff they do in industry I suppose !!)
He said the owners of the shops can afford the loss as the insurance pays them any way !!
Still,it will stop right away after Cameron announced,''ANYONE CAUGHT LOOTING WILL BE PROSECUTED !!
That will REALLY put the fear of God on them !!

I confess to not understanding all of the imagery, but it's an intriguing image and beautifully put together. The flying books are indeed quite brilliant.

wish you had explained this image,
it has so many messages in it

i am frustrated to understand it,

books turning into birds who fly away with a t.v. ?

blindfolded holding a bomb?

poppies in the rain,
and many more

don't understand the girl or her baseball gloves


it is a message that looks effective
but...

i cant understand it.

but the image is effective and so i have voted for it

The manip work is so clever and the message strong - just not sure it doesn't have too much of a bit of "fairy story image" look about it - so cleverly put together though and I find that aspect of it simply awesome.

Hurricane annie ripped the ceiling of a church
And killed everyone inside
U turn on the telly and every other story
Is tellin u somebody died
Sister killed her baby cuz she could afford 2 feed it
And were sending people 2 the moon
In september my cousin tried reefer 4 the very first time
Now he's doing horse, it's june

Great lyrics from a genius musician mate, and a great image to boot Smile
