Get Down From That Horse

Ever heard of a place called Xinjiang? It’s kind of a large place. Pretty big, pretty empty too. Ok, what about Tibet? Now, I know you’ve heard of that. Big place, pretty empty. Actually, what about Uyghurs? Have you heard of them? Nope. Hmm. Interesting. So Xinjiang and Tibet have a few things in common … Continue reading

Get. The. Fuck. Out. Of. My. Way.

I’m not going to lie. I don’t walk at a particularly fast pace. In fact I walk kinda slow. If I am walking with someone else, most people in fact, chances are they will end up a couple of metres in front of me before they turn around and huff and wait for me to … Continue reading

Songs For My Jilted Generation

There’s an interesting article on the BBC website (good ol’ Aunty) that I came across this morning. You can read it here. It’s very UK centric so if that’s irrelevant to you then, well, tough.

The idea of … Continue reading

What I Wouldn’t Give For Explosives…

It’s one in the morning.   It’s hot.   There is no fan or air conditioning.   Opening the window leaves you subjected to the sounds of China’s ongoing bid to build until ever later hours.   Closing the window doesn’t keep out the noise.   And then there is a motherfucking car alarm.   … Continue reading

This Person Isn’t Feeling Hateful Enough…

…So I thought I’d be hateful enough for him. Read this.

List of Things I Hate

To give you a flavour of things that will be coming your way over the weeks, here is a little (and by no means exhaustive) list of things I hate: David Cameron Nick Clegg Tories Lib Dems Middle class bruschetta eating hippies Capitalism People who whine about fuck all but think theirs is the weight … Continue reading
