  • Albums Of The Year 2014

    This year, I had to cull this top forty from 108 albums I bought. Can you imagine how fucking painful that was? I had to leave out a lot of music that found a place in my heart. So, anything, everything you see below is worthy of owning, doesn’t matter if it’s number 40 or…

  • Transphobic Nonsense

    Please DO NOT post your transphobic bullshit on the comments section of my song, thank you. Really, of all the songs in the world, you’re going to pick this one to post your utter ignorance on?? Where a man is singing the words, “I could never be your woman?” REALLY? Get the fuck out!

  • Black Mirror White Christmas

    Sooo… overall, I enjoyed the Brooker special. It was a nice dollop of horror in the festive season, a bit of a high-tech Tales Of The Unexpected. Or perhaps an update of one of my fave classic Brit horror films, Dead Of Night. I can’t fault the acting, direction, mise-en-scene, all wonderful. The only problem…

  • On Crimbo Representation

    Christmas card shopping for my family yesterday… … can I get that Mum card. Nope white Mum character. Can I get that Dad or sis card? Nope. Same thing. Niece, nehpew? Nope, nope. Guess I’ll just get the ones with bears on as usual as at least they’re a kind of brown? Or with no…

  • Gotham – LoveCraft (S1E10)

    Absolutely loving Gotham. Lil Bruce (David Mazouz) and Selina (Camren Bicondova) on the run, the cinematography, the precision mise-en-scene, the random bit of Gang Of Four in the soundtrack. This show is building up layer upon layer of history, adding so much detail to the DC characters it plays like aces. The ensemble cast is…

  • USA State Of Torture And Terror, World Does Not Care

    Imagine if a news story broke that North Korea had a huge network of secret bases all around the world. And that they were kidnapping innocent people to these bases, some of them children and then torturing them there. Wouldn’t it seem like fantasy? Some bizarre spy film bullshit? If the story was proved true,…

  • On The US, Bonapartism, Fascism, Revolution

    femmeviva replied to your post “Fuck, they waterboarded one man 183 times. 183 times. And left…” Yes it is. Our president has had emergency powers since the end of the war, and we didn’t let the Jews land their boat during the war. Kind of late, but yes, the government which I live under is…

  • Time Lapse (2014)

    Saw Time Lapse last week – wonderful film about time travel, paranoia, jealousy, free will, money, morality. It’s one of my fave films of 2014! No spoilers here but I recommend it if you like quirky, tense dramas where SF is used to expose the human condition.

  • Obama Ignores US Torture, Terrorism

    The UN and human rights groups have called for the prosecution of US officials involved in what a Senate report called the “brutal” CIA interrogation of al-Qaeda suspects. A top UN human rights envoy said there had been a “clear policy orchestrated at a high level”. The CIA has defended its actions in the years after the 9/11…
