Yes, that's right, 500,000 vuvuzelas. Those annoying buzzing things that drive you crazy when attempting to watch the World Cup. Well, more crazy than just the total lack of any sort of action in the game whatsoever. Oh, and the completely random officiating. Aaaand the fact that the referee can pretty much end the game whenever he feels like it. Are you guys sure this isn't professional wrestling?

What did we learn on today's programme?
ABC News announcers don't know anything about video games.
God is apparently an art critic.
There is now a dating website for people who are too obsessed with Apple products to functionally participate in a relationship.
It would be incredibly amusing if said dating website were Flash-based.
In the meantime, while the University and Union lawyers duke it out over who's paying for the Chinese take-out, here's a special web-only edition of the Magic Miku Moment, in which we feature the musical stylings of former WUSR Jazz director Mark Webb^H^H^H^H^H^H Sorry, wrong moment. *ahem*, The musical stylings of Japan's computer-generated vocal diva Miku Hatsune.
This week, we're featuring a remake of one of my favorite tracks from the "Miku Hatsune is Murdering Improving the 1980's" genre, a cover of "Heaven is a Place on Earth", originally by Belinda Carlisle (whoever that is), by YouTube user initializedee. This version uses the recently released "Miku Append" libraries, which feature a wider range of vocal tones to work with. Also, initializedee seems to have acquired an animation budget with this one:
(Though I still like the goofy, minimalistic animation (okay, okay, lack of animation) of the original better)
