RuPaul (or rather RudePaul) - Biggest disappointment of 2008

All the hype and all the talking about RuPaul coming to SA - and when it was all over, we wished that (s)he rather stayed at home.
Now there is a fine line between fashionably late (which all "stars" are allowed to be I suppose) and being disrespectful and rude. RuPaul (or RudePaul as we have now dubbed him/her) has crossed that line and sitting on firmly on the DISRESPECTFUL AND RUDE side after letting the crowd (including me) wait for more than an hour for her/his arrival. Then did a few songs and disappeared again. Pathetic !!
Now if you are late - your performance must be fantastic to make up for you being late. But the performance we saw was watered down, uninteresting and (yaaawn) sorry to say borring. We left the VIP section to go dance inside half-way through the show - and by the amount of people that came through the doors - believe me, we were not the only people who felt the same way.
RudePaul: We are Africans (and maybe you felt we don't deserve you being on time) - but you definitely don't have the SPUNK or the PaZAZZZ we thought you had to entertain us. Hope the people in the US put up with your constant lateness and disrespectful behaviour towards fans (now ex-fans !!)
Thanks Therapy for you guys saved the day - the party after RudePaul was fantastic.

Above: RudePaul last seen leaving OR Thambo International airport - Good riddens !!!

Revealed: Plans to build the world's tallest building at 1km high

High times: An artist's impression of a new sky scraper in Dubai that, when built, could become the world's tallest building
Plans to construct what could become the world's tallest building, at more than 1km high, were unveiled today.

Dubai developer Nakheel - the company that created man-made islands in the shapes of a palm tree and the world - said the structure will be the centre-piece of an inner-city harbour set to become the emirate's new, unofficial capital.

It would not comment on exactly how high or how expensive the Islamic design-inspired Nakheel Tower will be. The building will have "more than 200 floors" and be part of "a multi-billion pound development", the company said.

But "tallest building" claims are notoriously difficult to make. Debates about what counts as a candidate include whether buildings under construction should be considered and whether roof-top antennas count.

What is certain is that the tower will climb above what is said to be current holder of the "world's tallest building" position - the emirate's own Burj Dubai.
Speaking at a press conference today, a cautious Nakheel chief executive officer, Christopher O'Donnell, said: "From our perspective, we are building a tower that's going to be over 1km in height. This is a complete iconic development. It may be the tallest. Someone may build something taller."
Hollywood power couple Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas also attended the press conference.

The Nakheel Tower will have around 150 lifts and be built with some 500,000m3 of concrete. If the reinforcing bars planned were laid end to end, they would stretch from Dubai to New York.
The building will have enough cooling capacity to air-condition more than 14,000 modern homes.
It will be so tall that it experiences five different microclimatic conditions over its height. The temperature in the atmosphere at the top of the building could be as much as 10 degrees cooler than the bottom.
Planned high speed shuttle lifts will allow people to see the sunset twice - from the bottom and again from the top of the building.
The Burj Dubai was, until the new plans were announced, the world's tallest building. It will have ten years to enjoy the title before the Nakheel tower is completed

Excerpts from a Cat's Diary...
Day 983 of my captivity.
My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength. The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape.

In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a 'good little hunter' I am. Bastards!!

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of 'allergies.' I must learn what this means and how to use it to my advantage.. Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs. I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.

The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicating with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now.........
