Crimewave – Crystal Castles


Did you know that it’s impossible to find the correct lyrics for Crimewave by Crystal Castles? I was looking up the lyrics for some reason, I dunno why, I just felt like it, and discovered that nobody is certain what they are. One of the site I looked at said it was:

Eyes lit
On sharp threats
From darks lips

But lights press
The soft skin
To rough hands.

Anouther site I found said that it was:

Eyes lit
I pawn short breaths
A fawn’s dark eye lids
But life’s breath like a sun against my head

And yet a third said:

Eyes lit
I want short breaths
I found dark eye lids
Nice breasts
Like the summer into rough hands

I want to hear what you guys think the correct lyrics are. Below  I attached the true audio and a live performance. I look forward to hear what you think. I pretty much think that whichever one I’m reading at the time is correct =$

Man Points


How can I describe Man Points? It is the scoring system by which men rate each other. Doing man things gives Man Points while doing non man things taketh the Man Points away. The man with the most Man Points is the most man like. Here is a list of Man Point things. It is clearly just a short sample of criteria that all men have ingrained into their minds at the moment of their conception, if you have any you wish to add, just comment and I’ll see what I can do.

It shames me to admit that I have lost several man points through some of these rules.

Google Statistics


I love Google. Here’s some awesome states to droll over. Hopefully at least a few people who read Crusade haven’t seen this before. Credit goes to The Pingdom blog for creating this.

I was more then a little sad when Google Wave closed down, I hope my buddies who worked on it have found nice work to do. Rumor says that a lot of them will be working on ‘Google Me’, Google’s answer to Facebook. Google Me had done a deal with… some game maker types… to make sure that they get the best games first. This is because apparently people spend 40% of their time on Facebook playing ‘games’ (I don’t think those things really deserve that name). Google Me also intends to incorporate music into itself, a feature that Facebook has long been lacking. It is important to Google to get into social media (Facebook and so forth) because the Internet is changing. Once we used to google what we wanted to find then go onto it. Google would get it’s money from advertising in the search results. Even with the launch of android and other services a stupid large (refer to picture below) amount of it’s revenue comes from this advertising. Facebook and other social media sites threaten this because now users spend more of their time on the Internet going from one known website to another (ie from Facebook to a link a Facebook friend posted, to be fair this is more commen on sites like Reddit but facebook is a better known example).

Cant wait for Google Me? Try Orkut, Google’s current social media attempt. I’ve only just started fishing around it but it seems to have one advantage already. There are different types of friends. This means you can write things about your boss that only your family can read, or you can talk about your sex life and your parents are none the wiser. I wouldn’t recommend doing either of those in a non anonymous format on the Internet. But hey, if you want to you can now.

Decoding Hidden Signals


I always have trouble understanding what people are trying to tell me unless they tell me straight up. So after much consultation I’ve put together this little phrasebook to help others who are as equally socially inept as me. If you have any thoughts or suggestion please comment.



What the girl says: I disagree with that compliment you just gave me, I don’t believe you.
What she means: Please continue saying nice things to me.
