Earth Hour Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

Samuel’s Bright Earth Hour

March 29th, 2008 at 11:52pm

I must say, I quite liked having the lights on between 8pm and 9pm. It was a good way to spend Earth Hour. The full set of photos can be seen on the photo gallery at

Earth Hour coincided with half an hour of The Bill, so I recorded The Bill and watched it on a half hour delay.

A few choice photos:

Quite frankly, I think I prefer having all the lights on, the whole house looks quite nice when it’s bright.

I hope you enjoyed Earth Hour as much as I did.

    Whilst I am tempted to comment further on your radical approach to your dislike of Earth Hour, I will limit my comments to the contents of your refrigerator.

    That Apple & Mango Juice must be good stuff. I will make sure I try it some time.

    Vegemite goes in the cupboard, not the fridge.

    Davky, it is. There aren’t many juices that I like, but I do like that one.

    Pen…the word that springs to mind (and it’s probably more of a sound and less of a word) is “gah”. Warm Vegemite just doesn’t spread properly. Refrigerated Vegemite placed on hot toast comes close to melting, it spreads well and soaks in to the bread. It’s fantastic.

    For what it’s worth, I do have a jar of Vegemite in the cupboard. It will be placed in the fridge when the jar which is currently in the fridge comes close to being empty.

    I didn’t cut lights either Samuel, I think it’s just a gimmick to show the Greenies if they have people power behind them.
    Good to see you have Vegemite in your fridge mate, you ain’t true blue Aussie if you don’t.
    I love my Vegemite.

    Very disappointed, Samuel.

    You’ve raped Mother Earth with your arrogant and selfish approach to Earth Hour.

    I’m glad you pulled out of the election.

    You’ve lost all right to stand for public office, and any respect I held for your involvement in public debate has now been lost.

    You are a f***ing tool, Samuel.

    Pure and simple.

  • 7. Samuel  |  March 31st, 2008 at 12:36 pm

    Why Mick? Because I believe the scientific evidence against anthropogenic global warming?

    Fathead, I have not lost the right to do anything…unless people who disagree with your opinions aren’t allowed to run for office, in which case we should worship you as our great dictator.

    Good on you Samuel, at least you showed one and all you are not a sheep.
    That is what is wrong with this country, too many sheep and not enough cattle dogs to round em up.
    Oh look I’m chicken little, the sky is falling, the sky is falling.
    I’m just wondering how much we are told is fact and how much is fiction?
    Maybe it’s just a way to get another best seller off the press, after all money makes the world go round, in what condition is an after thought.

    Earth Hour: Turn out your lights for World Wide Fascism (WWF)
    The World Wide Fund for Nature’s Earth Hour stunt this weekend, encouraging people to voluntarily turn off their lights for an hour, is a dry run for a program to force cuts in energy consumption, to kill millions of people worldwide.

    And, just as the hour without lights will have zero impact on carbon emissions, the permanent, forced cuts in energy consumption the WWF is gunning for will have zero impact on the earth’s climate. Then again, that is not their purpose: Faced with the accelerating disintegration of their “globalist” financial system, the British imperialists behind the WWF are driving for worldwide fascism. The purpose of “Earth Hour”, like all other “environmentalist” scams such as “Global Warming”, is to brainwash the population into accepting the neo-Malthusian doctrine that mankind can do nothing about alleged “environmental dangers” (which either don’t exist in the first place, or could be easily managed with advanced science and technology), except to shut down all agriculture and industry.

    The WWF was principally founded by three individuals, whose pedigrees give their British imperial game away.

    Britain’s mass-murderous Prince Philip. He was quoted in an August, 1988 interview with Deutsche Presse-Agentur as saying: “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation”, a sentiment he has constantly reiterated.
    Sir Julian Huxley. He was the first director of UNESCO and the president of the mass-murderous British Eugenics Society when he co-founded the WWF.
    Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. He was the founding President of the WWF, and a former member of Hitler’s SS. When he left that mass-murderous organisation to marry the future Queen Juliana, he signed his letter of resignation, “Heil Hitler!”
    So, if you are either: 1) a gullible fool, 2) a complete idiot, or 3) a champion of British imperial neo-Malthusianism (i.e. you are pro-genocide, which Parson Thomas Malthus himself openly advocated) by all means turn out your lights for “Earth Hour”.

    Sorry about the length. It arrived in my spam folde as a media release. I could not find a link to that article in the website

  • 11. Samuel  |  April 2nd, 2008 at 3:48 am

    No problems Tuggers, thanks for that.

    I don’t know what it is about the CEC, but I can’t escape them, I’ve unsubscribed my email address, so they started to email one of the addresses at work…I unsubscribed that address and now their mailouts are turning up as comments.

    I might re-subscribe, if nothing else they do seem to be able to write an amusing conspiracy theory.
