My kissing project, part 4

News of the ban went into the International Herald Tribune 2 days in a row and travelled around the world. Full essay.

I was hoping something like that would happen ;)

I am DELIGHTED!

There is no way so much could have been achieved if they HAD given the permit.

If and when they do become more savvy and start allowing permits, we might actually miss these good old days of quick international publicity.

Congratulations Alex, on a another well executed campaign!

Now wouldn't it have been a lot better if the MDA had just approved the exhibition? The MDA hs just shown the world how "Uniquely Singapore" we are. Another faux pas by the MDA (of which there has been numerous in the last few years).Tsk tsk.

I was actually hoping to see the exhibition. I will probably try to come down for one of Indignation's events so that I can get to do that.

but if you think some people would be embarrassed by the publicity, you are mistaken; easily embarrassed people dont get appointed to those positions

Is the Straits Times going to cover any of this? It's all over the internet!

I find nothing narcissistic; you've done us proud.

Happy Pride, Alex.

P.S. Just read about the forum ban.

I would guess some reporter wrote it up, but publication would require higher level decision

Devious; I bet you're toying, already, with another flashy headline for next year ;)

so what happens now? any plans to publish those works on the web instead? much work has gone in, and even though a physical exhibition cannot take place, the internet remains a worth space in which the show can (and i'd say, must) go on.

likewise for Sanders' lecture, maybe a really basic outline can be put up.

Whoa... yep, this issue really had a swift international impact!

Many of my Irc/Msn, etc. pals actually asked me about this issue and most of them kept condemning the Singapore government and its' stand on censorship. To be frank, I'm glad things have turned out this way but what moves might the MDA consider in the future?
