Month: March 2023

  • Anything Further, Father?

    There’s nothing better than annoying my bff Nat: And then…

  • Bzangy Groink DJing Playlist 30/3/2023

    This month’s top tune was Leila by Acid Arab: It’s a stunning track from their new album, Trois. This track is like pure crack for me; I could listen to it on a loop for months. The interplay between the rhythm of the vocals and the grunting, pulsating synth is absolutely fucking perfect. If it…

  • RIP Gordon Moore

    Very sad to hear of the passing of Gordon Moore, the originator of Moore’s Law and one of the founders, along with Bob Noyce of Intel. Here’s both of them in 1960 along with the rest of the Traitorous Eight, the founders of Fairchild Semiconductor.

  • More Billy Pilgrim

    I know I’m not properly unstuck like Vonnegut actually was but the older I get, the more I don’t exist in linear time. Time becomes more like a shuffled deck of cards with no intrinsic direction or flow (as Julian Barbour is going to say in his forthcoming book. I’m a faulty slideshow; things get…

  • Three Thousand Years Of Longing (2022)

    I missed this in the cinema so I gave an excited but slightly worried squeak when I saw it had come on to Amazon tonight. Would I like it? Since my life isn’t long enough to waste writing negative reviews, you know that I loved it. I was looking forward to it because I’m a…

  • Amazon Shuts Down DPReview

    Dear readers, After nearly 25 years of operation, DPReview will be closing in the near future. This difficult decision is part of the annual operating plan review that our parent company shared earlier this year. The site will remain active until April 10, and the editorial team is still working on reviews and looking forward to delivering…

  • Casey Review Confirms ACAB

    Women and children have been failed by the Metropolitan Police, with racism, misogyny, and homophobia at the heart of the force, a blistering review says. Baroness Casey says a “boys’ club” culture is rife and the force could be dismantled if it does not improve. Her year-long review condemns systemic failures, painting a picture of…

  • The End Of Carnival Row

    It’s hard to believe I first wrote about Carnival Row four years ago. A lot has happened in this human world since 2019. I mean, hoo boy, a lot. I’m a different person to the one who wrote that review. My health has been seemingly permanently impaired. Also my heart. So, I returned to the…

  • Dance While You Can

    Changing the sheets today, I had to have a sit down halfway because I was so exhausted. I couldn’t go out to City last night as I was coughing all day and my stomach muscles hurt too much from all that contracting. I missed being out, missed seeing people. I think back to pre-Covid and…

  • Chicken Curry Time

    Cooking my Mummy’s recipe chicken curry and basmati rice – bonus is my house smells properly like home. I’m not the tidiest cook so I’ve got #haldi splodges all over me and lil ouchy burns from the spitting oil but I have a deep sense of satisfaction. I’ll post pics up later when it’s done.…

  • Copaganda

    The only realistic depiction of the police to be found in mainstream media is on Carnival Row. They are overwhelmingly rotten with the occasional good apple, the opposite of what our IRL forces claim. Why is a fantasy featuring fairies and fauns more honest than the hundreds of hours of copaganda pumped out by US…
