  • Derby Palestine Solidarity Protest 28/10/23

    I wasn’t well enough to do the march but I still made it to the demo outside the council house. The feeling was different from the last protest; this felt more desperate, more crucial. I guess because every new morning brings new horrors from Gaza, new atrocities carried out by Israel that are directly politically…

  • Halloweeeeeen Bzangy Groink DJing Playlist 26/10/23

  • Mastosilence = Death

    Mast has this reputation of being left wing. But the silence in my Home feed about the war crimes being committed against Gaza at this very moment shows the lie of that reputation. I guess liberals will liberal and follow their respective media’s hysteria to the letter. If you posted about the horrors that Hamas…

  • Sad Girl In Birds

    On the way home from seeing my Mummy, I popped into Birds at the Oakwood Precinct as I fancied some of their sausage rolls. The girl who served me was around 5″2′, nineteen, maybe twenty and quiet. Not in an unfriendly manner, just reserved. My first job was on a till, I know how much…

  • Free Palestine Derby Demo 14/10/23

    Today, I went on the local demo in support of the innocent people of Gaza and against the war crimes Israel is currently carrying out against them: Israel may be on the verge of a “mass ethnic cleansing” of Palestinians in Gaza in the wake of the bloody Hamas attack, a United Nations expert has warned. … Francesca Albanese, UN Special Rapporteur on human…

  • Goth Garden October 2023

    There was some lovely sunshine the other day.

  • End The Occupation

  • These Things Happen – The Sarah Records Story

    I got my copy of this book yesterday and, being a massive fucking bighead, the first thing I did was skim where I was quoted. Omg, I’m such a twat. BUT I think the rest of the book will be EXCELLENT. If you’re an ancient #C86 #Indiepop fan, then this is the #SarahRecords book for…

  • Cinematography

    Soo… … I was watching #AGoodDayToDieHard and I noticed that the cinematography was beautiful. Seriously. Any frame you pause looks like an intricately composed and lit still. The mix of ambient, reflected, hair and edge lighting is soooo well done. And then there are the scenes where lowlight is balanced against club lasers, distant car…
