That's the claim made on the package of mango gummies that I received today, and who am I to dispute such a claim? I wouldn't be at all surprised if they are very popular in Malaysia, as they are very tasty indeed.
The mango gummies were in a care package that I received from the ever-effervescent Mel Of The Pink Guitar today, along with a whole schwack of music and the audio book for the Alan Cross Guide to Alternative Rock.
Thus far I've listened to the first two chapters, and have heard him say that when he wrote the book, Radiohead were merely considered to be a very good British band but since the publication of the book, their reputation and contributions have ballooned to the point where they are now considered to be one of the most important groups of the entire alternative era. Naturally this statement has cemented the author's credibility in my eyes, and I shall listen to the rest of the book with relish.
And I was surprised with how much I am enjoying the Donnas. Mel had been singing their praises, but until I listened for myself, I didn't appreciate what a fun band they are. Thanks Mel! You sure know how to brighten up a Monday.
Also making Monday more interesting was tonight's episode of Daily Planet, in particular the segment on the rotating house in Australia. Built mainly of glass and steel, it's actually very ecologically advanced,and quite lovely. And the power required to rotate it? The motor is no larger than that of a washing machine motor and costs about 12 cent a day to operate.
I sort of want one now.
