  • Telex – Haven’t We Met Somewhere Before?

    I only know about Telex cos my mate who worked at WH Smiths with me lent me their album ‘Birds And Bees’ (called ‘Sex’ everywhere else, apparently). I knew nothing about the band, it was 1982, who knew anything about musicians back then? If they weren’t in Smash Hits or on the Oxford Road Show…

  • HOW SMALL IS ANNA KENDRICK?

    Currently watching Ben Affleck opposite Anna Kendrick in The Accountant: He’s either the size of a small house or she’s the size of a large cat. WTH, his head is the size of HER ENTIRE TORSO. They wouldn’t need trick shots / CGI if they played Gandalf and Bilbo, fuck me. WHAT IS GOING ON?

  • On Sleep Deprivation

    deep breath So, I’ve not been sleeping much because I’ve had a weird bastard cold. I’m getting around 3 hours a night. This morning I woke with bad jaw gland pain at around 6am and went to take 2 paracetamols and 2 ibuprofens. I use different shapes to help me differentiate which is which. But this…

  • Loach On Starmer’s Treachery

    The people who fell for the lies of the Blairites about Corbyn were just being good little Guardian readers, you can’t blame them for not knowing about politics. As one of my fave folk tunes says: Raise the scarlet standard highBeneath its folds we’ll live and dieThough cowards flinch and traitors sneerWe’ll keep the red…

  • Just One Platonic Cornetto

    My proposition today: the idea of a Cornetto is far better than the reality. Or should I say, the ideal of a Cornetto is something that cannot be matched by the faint, 4D shadows that our universe’s Cornettos exist within. It’s hot. You imagine a Cornetto. You imagine unpeeling it, hoping the little chocolatey end…

  • Baby Me

    I don’t know if the below link will embed or not, let’s give it a go: https://reuters.screenocean.com/record/858542 Ahh, dang it. Anyway, have a click to see me with HAIR and a very high voice. (By the way, the text below is not accurate, don’t believe any of it.)

  • When I Invented Silent Gigs / Discos

    Have a look at this interview from March 1997: (Source: New York Times) If you look up Silent Disco on Wikipedia, you get this: In May 2002 artist Meg Duguid hosted Dance with me… a silent dance party at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago where she created an outdoor club installation complete with velvet ropes and glow rope…

  • Kate (2021)

    So, I just watched ‘Kate,’ an action flick on Netflix (not bad, I’d give it a solid 8.5/10) and I thought I’d pop and see the score. Hmmm… seems quite low… I wonder why? Then I see this review: There’s a load of reviews like this, sometimes the woman-hating is better disguised than this, mostly…
