Fuck John Galt

To begin, I will quote Paul Krugman, because if you’re going to start an inevitable argument, you might as well start with a Nobel Prize winner: “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a … Continue reading

Of Might and Right

There is a film I think people should watch called Puncture. It stars Captain America, or Human Torch if you prefer, the bad CIA guy from The Bourne Identity and some other people I recognise but can’t recall from where. It’s based on a true story about single-use safety needles that a guy invented but … 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

Life is a Distraction

It’s true. Now, I’m not going to spout some shite about ‘reality’ and being blinded and other shit you may expect to find on those fucking annoying postcards all over the internet. A lot of people are quick to shout the ‘live life to the full’ mantra, and all the spin-offs of it. But how … Continue reading

I Have Seen…

Two feet standing proud in the sand, Cathedrals worn away by the rain, New dawns bringing the season’s change. Relentless. Welcome to the 21st Century. Where life happens so quick; we’re so wrapped up in everything that is happening, we forget what has been happening. This will be more of a stream of consciousness string … Continue reading

Vitriolism’s First Review

I was given this concise review of the blog today. “[A]n introspective, socially damning, judgemental, rant filled tirade of abuse against the masses.” Personally, I would have gone with ‘indispensable social service’, but I’m happy enough with the above.
