Aslo 'Conflict gemstones': the illegal diamond trade in Africa by rebel fighters who purchase their weapons by selling these 'blood diamonds' to kill their own people.
New, 'conflict-free' diamond bourses are established now to make sure no diamonds are going to be sold for guns, thanks to something called the 'Kimberley Process' (named after the 2000 meeting of major diamond-producing countries in Kimberley, South Africa), that issue KPCS (Kimberley Process Certification Scheme) certificates and offer other 'ethical alternatives' for those who lost their jobs as a result.
Blood diamonds are common in countries like Angola, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Liberia. Other conflict gemstones are emeralds alternatively known as 'blood emeralds' in Colombia.
|2.||league of gentlemen|
Amazingly written but rather twisted british comedy.
Set in the town Royston Vasey with a subtly placed slogan on the sign which reads "Welcome to Royston Vasey, You'll Never Leave"
known for its strange resident local shop keepers Tubs and Edward...that have given birth to 'David' something that lives in the attic of their local shop. The local shop is only for local people and has become one of the most popular quotes from the show.
Also home to a transvestite taxi driver and owner of the 'Babs Cabs'
my favourite character is the travelling circus freak and door-to-door peg salesman Papa Lazarou.
He and his 'freaks' travel round asking if 'Mama Lazarou' can use the toilet, then barges into the homes of unsuspecting housewives home alone, calling them Dave along with most other people. He wont take no for an answer when repeatedly told that no Dave llives there.
He speaks in jibberish to his 'wife' and upon asking for the frightened housewife's wedding ring quotes the infamous line "You're my wife now"
The league of gentlemen or LOG as its affectionally called between my friends and i is one of the best and weirdest comedies to come out of Britain in recent years.
"I've only been taking these hormones a week and me nipples are like bullets!"
"Hello Dave?....You're my wife now"
|3.||Diamonds on the soles of her shoes|
When a man, while engaged in sexual activity with a partner, puts the soles of their partner's feet together so the arches create an orfice and proceeds to bring himself to ejaculation by thrusting his penis between the feet.
"People think she's crazy, she's got diamonds on the soles of her shoes...now that's one way to lose these walking blues..."
adj. Used in reference to a decorative or jewelry item containing a prolific quantity of diamonds ("ice"). Connotes an ostentatious display of material wealth accumulated through slangin' crack, pimpin' 'hoes, hustlin' at the swap meet, MCing, and not paying chile support to tha baby's mamas!
Montrel was all frontin' his shit for the ladies like he's Mr. President or something, 'til I step in sportin' an iced out 24-karat Rolex on BOFE arms! Dayyumn, nigga, guess who got the booty now.
one of the best indie/punk/alt bands there are.
i cant believe there's no definitions for them on here!
so im gonna give them the definition they deserve.
such gorgeous music ranging from soft rock to almost folky type stuff, utterly unique.
Fronted by mark morriss who wrote my favourite poem of all time in the back cover of their 3rd album 'Science& Nature'.
Anyway...yeh fronted by Mark Morriss (or Big Mo)
his brother Scott Morriss , Adam Devlin and Eds Chesters.
Played near where i live in november....my brother went to see them and stole the set list off the stage...and went on the tour bus ....and met the band.
They write all of their own songs (why would they need covers when they're so damn awesome?)
Some of their most well known songs are 'Bluetonic', 'Are You Blue Or Are You Blind?', 'Marblehead Johnson' and 'Keep The Home Fires Burning'.
If you've never heard of The Bluetones then you deserve a slap but at least after reading this you now have!!
*Mark Morriss is a lyrical genius in his own right*
I sleep in my beloved bluetones t-shirt
also a pretty cool place to hang out on a friday night...on the Isle of Man of course
whey hey for the machine...it does rock it does
ummm, sitting down the beach with guitars randomly jamming and singing...then walking back up to the machine for a huge hug involving everyone in that building...now that sums up the machine!
|7.||damo the chav|
a very very stoooopid little boy who likes to mock women, goths and red dwarf. ..not only goths in general but a goth very much loved by us all and to mock him on his own band site no less...you IDIOT CHAV BOY!
smeg is a very good insult, and does beat sp00nfuck...what the hell do you call a sp00nfuck..and in leet aswel?? well if you're 'leet' you must be cool...
as for women...you just bought yourself a one-way ticket to celibacy. if you're not there already...
you have merely experienced that small smattering of girls who will actually sleep with you..and now, having totally irrationally spouted that shit on the guestbook of the Purged site, you will now never get any girl other than the aforementioned. and i'm damn fucking glad because you don't deserve them!
damo: tom you're such a sp00nfuck.
everyone who knows/loves/has met tom: *punches and pounds 'til death ensues*
