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

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

Stealing Good Ideas

We are not noble citizens. In fact, you could perhaps call us lots of nasty things. You would be right. We’d be ok with it. Then we’d call you a cunt. Anyway. The long and very interesting image below was something I came across recently, and I believe more people should read it. It’s a … 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

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

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

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

Manufacture THIS

Manufactured pop. The musical equivalent of prison rape*. Am I the only one who is shit sick of these charlatans who call themselves ‘musicians’? Any bugger with a half decent voice can win a karaoke contest. But unless you write your own songs, don’t bother calling yourself a musician. You’re just a little puppet. Seriously, … Continue reading

Tottenham Summer

I’ve sat on this post for a bit more than a week as I was unsure it was wise to publish it at the time. There’s a narrow line between condoning and contextualising. But here it is. I made a comment in a post last week or so. It was more of a throw away … Continue reading
