In Defence of the Ad Hominem

You’re not trustworthy. And you smell. It’s not like I can rely on your opinion, is it?  

Metal – Scientifically Nicer Than Indie

I’ve had an epiphany. Has it got this bad? Actually that implies I have just realised something, when in fact I have kind of known all along. I just happen to have an outlet for it these days. I’m pretty into my music. Both of us (me and Number One) in fact are. I generally … Continue reading

Public Service Anouncement

I read this somewhere. It’s a transcription of a stand up bit from some comic whose name escapes me at the moment. So if you said it (ha!) or know who said it, let us know. I have more to say on the subject but due to technical issues that cannot be resolved at the … Continue reading

The idea of … Continue reading

Hipsterclad and Clueless

We all know what a hipster is right? If not, (or if you just want to see what ridiculous depths people will sink to and have a laugh/cry/thoughts of genocide, and begin planning an actual worthwhile human cull) check it out. Now I’m not usually one to hate on a subculture. Mostly for two reasons: … Continue reading
