Not Quite The End

The end of 2012 is upon us. We have been on another mini hiatus the past six weeks or so. Christmas is a busy time and most people have better things to do than dislike our opinions. That said we will be back with new stuff in the next couple of days, after the obligatory … Continue reading

Green and (Mostly) Pristine

England is a fairly green place and empty place. I know this for two reasons: I used live in green and empty parts of it and, as mentioned previously, I have flown over parts of it and concluded it’s not actually a wasteland teeming with dirty immigrants. OK. I must confess I’ve never spent any … Continue reading

Puff, Puff, Pass

Smoking’s been in the news a bit recently. Well, it’s never really far from the news for the most part, but shut up and let me make my point before putting your hand up and end up being the annoying kid in class. Anyway. Two sets of colonial cousins are doing fancy pants things with … Continue reading

A Masterpiece You Say?

So art is a fickle thing. Recently you may have heard that a painting sold for £21,000,000 (if you didn’t, then yes, twenty-one million pounds), a rather large a mount of money. It was a painting by a chap named Gerhard Richter called Abstraktes Bild. There are certain words that spring to mind when I … Continue reading

Social Media Strain

We have a website. We write stuff on our website (when we get off of arses). Look. Facial hair! AMN1 and I are long time friends; from heady university days when we were fresh faced (yet still beardy) we talked society, music, politics, girls, student life, etc, etc. As you may (or may have not) … Continue reading

Stealing Good Ideas

We are not noble citizens. In fact, you could perhaps call us lots of nasty things. You would be right. We’d be ok with it. Then we’d call you a cunt. Anyway. The long and very interesting image below was something I came across recently, and I believe more people should read it. It’s a … Continue reading

Buy Now, Smile Later

I was in a shopping centre/mall recently. A big one. An expensive one. A very strangely unhappy one. It had sweet scent of leather and cold hard cash. And this was interesting for me. Now, I would like to stress first off that this is not an anti-capitalist rant, or anything like that. Maybe a … Continue reading

I am the 1% (Who can see beyond the fun of being a hippie)

Whilst whoring it up with StumbleUpon I was taken to a Daily Kos article expressing the author’s distaste over the people who obviously don’t understand the Occupy [enter city here] movement. And irony of ironies, what do I see? Someone missing the point! Now, maybe it’s because it’s a website dedicated to American ‘liberals’ (I … Continue reading

Sticking it to the man

Obviously…

So quit your jibber jabber.
