I Still Love You, Auntie

So the BBC… What’s that all about? Obviously they are in a spot of bother at the moment. This is a short post to say shut up and leave them alone. I love auntie. I have always loved auntie. I will always love auntie. For all it’s flaws (Jonathan Ross, Chris Moyles, Snog, Marry, Avoid, … Continue reading

And The Loser Is

The American elections are today, if you weren’t aware (or tomorrow, depending when you read this…). It is being suggested that it is a battle of good versus evil. A pitched battle for the soul of America. The most important election ever. Right. Weirdly they say that about every election. And every election they admit … Continue reading

Textbooks As Manipulation (Part Two)

I am just going to jump right in to what I was talking about yesterday, so if you didn’t read Part One, go take a step back. So what is this American exceptionalism you ask? Well the term itself is probably less than one hundred years old, but the concept is much older, like Alexis … Continue reading

Textbooks As Manipulation (Part One)

The first real instances of educational literature we come across, by and large, come from our school textbooks. This is kind of obvious if you think about it; if you consider that most people are in school around the ages of five or six (lets not haggle over the large sections of the global population … 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

Name Calling and Godwin’s Law

In light of world events. Recession, Greek bailouts, American elections, uh… stuff, etc, there has been a lot of comparisons to Hitler. This is ridiculous. Please stop it. You’re making small children and animals cry. Angela Merkel and Barak Obama, and countless other people (yes, even George W. Bush) are nothing like Hitler. Using this … Continue reading

YES

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

Um. No.

Stumbleupon brought me across this heap of shit: Surely if there was that much ‘chemistry’ you’d fucking know about it. Unless you had paralysis localised solely in your cock-and-bollock region. I suggest a Stalinist internet purge.

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

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
