The Volcano vs. BLK JKS!

Mother Nature, dude.  She always wins.  Though it’s kind of neat to see when we arrogant humans get the royal natural SMACKDOWN, it kind of sucks?  We’ve got places to go and people to see!

Does Mother Nature read the internet?  If she does, consider these points an open letter:

1. The eruption of Eyjafjallajökull is an awesome display of your majestic powers.

2. BLK JKS totally missed their flight to South Africa to attend the South African Music Awards, where they won BEST ALTERNATIVE ALBUM for After Robots.  You’re a huge fan of BLK JKS, so what gives?

In this rock paper scissors of international flight and volcanic eruption, Mother Nature beats airports, BLK JKS winning the SAMA awards beats Mother Nature and airports beats BLK JKS.  It might not make sense, but it’s the truth.  Liquid hot magma.

Congratulations, BLK JKS!  We knew you were SA’s best band, but now you will have an award engraved with the facts.
