The Wonderful Internet

Edit: Sorry, links weren’t working. They are now. I love the internet. The internet is a wealth of hilarity. Such as the picture that brought you to this nugget of wisdom. I am suffering from a mild form of writers block. So I decided to trawl the internet for something to inspire me. I randomly … Continue reading

Picking Sides (Redux)

Take a look here, for our brief explanation of today’s (Tuesday 6th November) posts. There are two sides fighting over the presidency in America today. The same can be said of Congress in a more general voice. Is that not strange, that there are only two sides? Technically they’re are more candidates, but you’ve never … Continue reading

How Low Can You Go?

This is only a short article. I think it’s an issue where you need to look at all the different arguments, which I can’t paraphrase well here. I passed on a link to an article yesterday regarding Starbucks in the UK. If you didn’t read it, it was a story on how they have paid … Continue reading

Dr. Strangelove (Or How I Stopped Worrying And Learnt To Love Privilege)

It’s been a weird couple of weeks if you’re a politico in the UK. You kind of expect the doctor (of Doctor Who fame, though I expect the men in white coats wouldn’t be too far behind) to appear out of nowhere, tell you it’s all a dream, and to stop procrastinating and get on … Continue reading

The Thing About Facts

So I was watching The Newsroom this summer. It’s good entertaining tv. Particularly if you agree with everything it pretty much goes on about (but that’s not why I like it); it’s a bit preachy. It’s very preachy. But it’s tv. It’s American tv, which usually has some bent on it. Anyway. This isn’t an … 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

YES

Fucking yes. http://hackneyhipsterhate.tumblr.com/post/791630426/claptonhousepartycunts That is all.

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

More Kindred Spirits?

Now, you will know by now that we fucking hate hipsters. Any accidental hipsters must go through a thorough screening process before they talk to us. They must be cleansed. Real bone fide hipsters must go through a firey building wearing nothing but a moustache, riding a fixed-gear bike we doused in petrol only minutes … Continue reading
