As for Duran Duran; Yeah, i hated them at the time, but in retrospect, as far as pop goes, they weren't too bad...AAAGGGGHHH....never thought i'd admit that...trust me it's just the booze talkin'
just askin heh heh?
i don't know. probably most ov you remember the original cartoon series & those bloody annoying toys that were like the rubicks cube ov the day....well i hadn't heard ov it before now, but Steven Spielburg has made a Transformers movie, & this is the trailer.
it looks like a typically over produced, special effects heavy Spielburg production. Only thing is it also looks totally ridiculous. I found the trailer totally hilarious.

A Bose–Einstein condensate is a state of matter formed by bosons cooled to temperatures very near to absolute zero (0 kelvin or -273.15°C). Under such supercooled conditions, a large fraction of the atoms collapse into the lowest quantum state, at which point quantum effects become apparent on a macroscopic scale.
just for interest, the forth state ov matter is plasma.

The Burda by Imam al-Busiri, is arguably the greatest and most famous classic poem in the Arabic language in praise of the Prophet Muhammad. The name means 'poem of the mantle' or 'of the cloak'. It was written in the 11th century by Imam al-Busiri and forms part of a vast body of literature in praise of the Prophet that emerged from an Islamic culture where seeking knowledge of him was encouraged. Imam Al-Busiri both acknowledges this and the shortcomings of describing the Prophet in the poem itself: "He is like the sun, small to the eye when seen from afar, but when glimpsed close up. It dazzles and overwhelms."
The famous Mamluke minister Ibn Hinna, who served under the legendry sultan Barbys, took Imam al-Busiri under his patronage and freed him to write his poems in material security. However, art often suffers when the artist is freed from suffering, and comes to life when calamities call. His greatest poem would result from a powerful tribulation: he woke up to find he was paralysed; half his body without movement. Suddenly, this man, whose erudition and art had elevated him to the status of prince of poets of his time, was reduced to an invalid unable to rise from his bed. This state of affliction stirred him to write the Burda.
"...I began to contemplate writing a poem in the qasida form, and soon after, I did so as a way of interceding by it with the Messenger of God to God, the Exalted, hoping that he might heal me. I was repeating it often, singing it, calling upon God through it, and seeking intercession with it. During that time, while sleeping, I saw the Prophet, upon him and his family be prayers and peace. He wiped over my face with his blessed hand and thrust upon me his cloak. I immediately got up and left my house. I had told no one of my poem nor of anything I had been doing prior to that. On the road, I met a fellow spiritual wayfarer, who said to me, "I want you to give me a copy of the poem you wrote in praise of the Prophet, upon him be prayers and peace." I responded, "which one?" He said, "The one you wrote during your illness." He then recited its opening lines saying, "By God, I heard it in a vision last night recited in the presence of God's messenger, upon him and his family blessing and peace. It greatly pleased the prophet, and I saw him thrust his cloak on the one who wrote it!" I provided him with a copy, and he began telling others of his vision. Thus its news spread far and wide."
Imam al-Busiri died in Alexandria, Egypt in the year 1295 CE. His grave is well known and is connected to a large mosque. His poem embellishes its walls. The Burda was also engraved on the Prophet's mosque in Madina. There it adorned its walls and reminded believers for centuries before being erased by people who could not comprehend it. There is still one line left that has not been removed:
"He is the beloved whose intercession is hoped for
As arms against a host of relentless calamities.
