No fly-zone and the worst song evarrrr.

Sorry I've been gone for a few days people. There's been a lot of stuff going on i.e. college work. So let's get straight into it.

Over the past few days the no-fly zone over Libya has been imposed and enforced, keeping the rebels very much in the fight, after the ceasefire was broken. Now this "no-fly zone" seem's to be more of a "bomb-the-shit-out-of-anything-that-moves zone", with a few hundred tomohawk cruise misiles being fired at government troops. Viva la revolution eh?

For those of you that haven't seen Rebecca Blacks song "Friday" Save yourself the pain or hope to god you get rick-rolled, it really is "the worst song ever", even the BBC say so. Autotuned, with terrible lyrics and a terrible video, it is clear that an American 13 year old girl's parents were very keen, for whatever reason, to generate a new 'Justin Bieber'. A sad story indeed.

However a sadder story is that the death toll in Japan is now at over 8,000, with over 1,300 still missing. The nuclear disaster is still being brought under control, but it is a real shame to see the reputation of nuclear power damaged so much. It is almost a perfect energy generation method, with 1kg of Uranium-235 producing over 200,000 times more energy than 1kg of coal.The pollution is controllable, no green house gases, the radioactive materials can just be stored away. But if natural disasters can cause this kind of catastrophe, people are right to be wary.

The new game 'Homefront' seems to have been a disapointment, with a metacritic score of only 71, it looks to be a good-average game, rather than the new Call of Duty we were all hoping for. But if you get the chance look for the trailer for "Dead Island", the newish trailers that is, not the one's from 2007 when it was originally announced. Do so. Looks amazing. Thanks for the read guys. Sam.
