Win Love-Shit with Darin!

Sweden's greatest pop star after Ace of Base and Roxette is 11-year-old Darin, who won the Swedish equivalent of American Idol. Darin's name is of course a clever anagram of nadir,

The lowest point of the celestial sphere; opposite to zenith.
In his latest interview, Darin revals that he's currently not in love, and that he likes his fans. Furthermore, his suggestions for Valentine's Day gifts are roses, chocolate and the CD Absolute Lovesongs [sic].

Now, let me depart from the stated subject of this Superblog!! entry to note that, when I googled for that album (Absolute Love Songs), the following appeared at the end of the first page of hits:

In response to a complaint we received under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page. If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaint for these removed results.
That latter page is titled "AzeoTech Requests Takedown of Cracks" and is from the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse,

A joint project of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Harvard, Stanford, Berkeley, University of San Francisco, University of Maine, and George Washington School of Law clinics.

Do you know your online rights? Have you received a letter asking you to remove information from a Web site or to stop engaging in an activity? Are you concerned about liability for information that someone else posted to your online forum? If so, this site is for you.
Where am I going with this? Nowhere. I just got sidetracked. Until Google ruined my buzz, I was going to point to the part of the Darin page where you can win Darin's Love-Shit, and then I thought about rounding out this entry with something about William Hung.

But you know what? I'll blog about William some other time instead. In my mind, Google has thoroughly sabotaged this entry. Thank you, Google!

Footnote: This entry contains several lies. Can you spot them all?
