Month: August 2014

  • I Wanna Be Your Ex

  • Radio.com Interview

    Lovely interview with Dan Weiss of Radio.com which you can read by clicking here. I had a blast chatting with him and, as usual, acted like a total gobshite.

  • White Town – I Wanna Be Your Ex

    Yaaaay! Above you can see my NEW SINGLE! It’s called ‘I Wanna Be Your Ex’ and it’s now available for download from iTunes US iTunes UK The song is, as ever, about more than one thing. A lot of it is about my frustration with conventional relationships, both sexual and non-sexual and how annoyed I…

  • Lee Thompson Young

    I only just found out that Lee Thompson Young, pictured above, committed suicide last August. I was watching the season 5 premiere of Rizzoli & Isles and when they had the scene at the end where Frost dies in the crash, I thought ‘That’s a shame, he must have got a better offer or a…

  • DJs Complaining

    I think I’ve found my fave new Twitter – DJs Complaining. Almost beats First World Problems.

  • Drone Creeps Out Vancouver Man

    Drone was “a couple of feet away from my patio, camera pointed right at me.” (Source: arstechnica.com) THE FUTURE IS CREEPY. Still, could have been worse ~ could have been a government drone like the ones Obomber uses to murder Pakistani children. Over 3,000 innocents murdered by the USA…. no wonder they’re supporting Israel’s razing of…

  • Amnesty Accuses Police Of Violating Human Rights In Ferguson

    Amnesty International traditionally sends observers to war zones and countries with authoritarian regimes. Now, in a first for the human rights organisation, it has deployed staff to cover an event within the US itself. A team of 15 has gone to Ferguson, Missouri, to monitor claims of police violations during the protests which erupted following…

  • Wheezer

    The past month I’ve been wheezing and short of breath, relying on old inhalers to settle me enough to get to sleep. I thought it was just a reaction to dust from when I was tidying attic stuff. I’ve been feeling run down and haven’t been able to do my normal gym routine or emowalks!…

  • FoxNewsBeat

    No reports about the police harassment, about officers who have removed their identifiers, about police pointing weapons at peaceful protestors.

  • Yet Another Racist UKIP MEP

    Comments made by a UKIP MEP about a Thai constituent have been described as outrageous by the woman’s husband. South East MEP Janice Atkinson described Fa Munday, a UKIP-supporting mobile food seller in Ramsgate, Kent, as a “ting tong from somewhere”. Her comments were recorded by BBC South East Today following an interview. (Source: bbc.co.uk) The…

  • House Of Cards

    So, in the past week, I’ve bingewatched both seasons of House Of Cards and I remain in awe of the whole programme. This is peerless television.  I loved the original UK series it’s based on. Ian Richardson created the perfect oily Tory: completely selfish, psychopathically amoral and apparently genetically incapable of honesty. I’ve met Tory ministers with…

  • CIA Smears Snowden

    There’s just one problem with a recent NPR segment on a new “big data” report that blames Snowden for “changed terrorist behavior.” The main source for the story receives funding from the CIA. (Source: NPR ‘laundering CIA talking points’ in linking Snowden to ‘changed terrorist behaviour’) Sooo… “independent” report claiming that Snowden has endangered the US…

  • GAZA9 – 150,000 March In London To Defend Gaza

    Today, I woke all bleary after four hours’ sleep and caught the train to London to take part in the national demo called by Stop The War in defence of the Palestinians being slaughtered in Gaza by Israel. So far, nearly 2,000 civilians have been killed by the Israelis, over 400 being children. Meanwhile, 66…

  • Exodus Whitewashing

    I’ve just read this article : You Probably Shouldn’t Go See Ridley Scott’s Pretty Racist ‘Exodus’ Movie Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings movie is racist as shit. And it’s disgusting, lazy and a movie that people shouldn’t… Again, this is what I mean about the one-way street of cultural appropriation: the whitewashing of so many…

  • Falling Skies

    Falling Skies Season 4 cements this series’ position as one of my favourite ever SF TV series. Beautifully written and acted, FS has always maintained the right mixture of drama, romance, mystery and, of course, massive alien spaceships and ravenous bugbeasts. It’s also refreshing as so many SF series are now aimed very firmly at…

  • Grace Chatto

    So, it appears that I’m crushing like neutronium on Grace Chatto from Clean Bandit. She is soooo beautiful and talented and pretty and wow and I appear to be fourteen again.
