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

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

UP THE PUNX!

We’ve been quiet lately. Lives to live, shit to do and all that. But recently I just haven’t been feeling as angry. Probably stress. So I thought to myself ‘what better time to write a post about punk?!’ If you don’t have specific anger, channel the generic anger until Adele releases a new song and … 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

Shop Related News

Things have changed in the shop. Prices are down to reflect these hard economic times. The average price of a t-shirt is now just ¬£12.00. That’s just¬†7,100.28 Zimbabwean Dollars! There are also women’s versions of every design. The women’s t-shirts are about a pound more expensive. We could have made them the same price, but … 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

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. But it’s worth a read regardless. It talks of the generation born in the 80s and how they will be … Continue reading

O God, The Aftermath

Take your pick Ah, religion… I’m going to preface this article by explicity stating I’m an atheist. Not an agnostic. And don’t start on that ‘Well you can’t ever know whether or not god does exist’ bullshit. I find the idea of religion silly, childish, and akin to believing in fairy tales. 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
