Year: 2024

  • Where Is My Golf Course On The Moon?

    I love #Noclip’s docs, they’re the extreme level of detail I crave about games I love. At the start of this one, they say, “We’re now closer to when the first game is set in time than when the game actually came out.” … and my brain did a long jelly wobble in its calcium…

  • Fuck The Guardian Forever

    We are in the mess we’re in now, with #MaggieStarmer purging anyone who once coughed loudly in a non-Tory way, because of The Guardian. We have a liar as Labour leader. We have a genocide supporter as Labour leader. He makes fucking Kinnock look reasonable. I will never forget or forgive them. And every ruling…

  • OMOMO Derby

    Oh wow – first time at but definitely not the last. We had the BEST food, I could actually fit my dodgy leg under the table (great seats!) and the service was also excellent. Derby peeps, if you haven’t been – GO! #KoreanStreetFood #KoreanFood #SoYummy #SuperTasty

  • Derby PSC Emergency Rally 1/6/24

    This rally was in response to yet another war crime from Israel: And what did the West do? Nothing. Some bluster, some strongly wagged fingers and that was it. So, I had to go to the protest, I had to make my voice heard. And I was very heartened not only to see the initial…

  • Cafe Palestina 30/5/24

    I actually managed to get out to Cafe Palestina this month and it was absolutely lovely. Again, a good turnout and great speakers. Have a look at some pics I took here: If you’re free and in the area, pop along, it’s the last Thursday of every month, at Dubrek, Derby.

  • Midjourney Has Got Even More Racist

    I haven’t been on Midjourney in months now, through a mixture of ethical concerns and, to be honest, sheer boredom. After a while, that whole AI look for everything gets wearing. And you can spot it, a mile away. There’s just something… uncanny valley going on. Even without humans in the images. I had a…

  • Sad On Sad

    Been a lot of not good stuff happening lately. Some of it is not mine to talk about but some of it, like my Mummy’s dementia, is. (I’m not going to go off into a whole thing about dementia now because that’s too big. And too horrible.) I keep having dreams where I’m talking to…

  • Derby & Burton 76 Years Of Nakba Protest 11/5/24

    I haven’t been well enough to go to recent protests but I managed to make it to the one today in Derby, organised jointly with Burton PSC to mark 76 years since the Nakba: The Nakba (Arabic: ?????? an-Nakbah, lit.?’The Catastrophe’) was the ethnic cleansing[2] of Palestinians in Mandatory Palestine during the 1948 Palestine war through their violent displacement and dispossession of land, property, and belongings, along with the devastation…

  • Garden Macros May 2024

    Click through for some sunny garden pics I took an hour or so ago.

  • Godzilla Minus One

    I’m having to watch # GodzillaMinusOne (#???-1.0??????, #GojiraMainasuWan) in chunks cos it’s just making me cry too much. The contrast between this film and the sub-video-game-cutscene bilge currently doing the rounds is astonishing. The last time Hollywood Gojira had any real heart was when Bryan Cranston was in it – TEN years ago. I actually…

  • I’m Gonna HERNIATE my HERNIA

    toniiiiiiight *cue extended solo by Artie Shaw*

  • Hardass Shakycam Sucralose

    Hi, I’m a grizzled, lone maverick private investigator. I drink whisky, neat. I have a deep love of very impractical classic cars. I’m haunted by the memory of some woman, some where. Maybe a deceased wife or a daughter. Perhaps a fetching pomeranian. My inner monologue is grizzled and neat. Also pomeranian. My middle name,…

  • London, Leicester Square And China Town

    I did my first gig since 2018 on Thursday, in London. The gig was fun and went well but my health was pretty poor during the trip. But I managed a bit of a hobble around to get some pics!

  • April Chad Wood

    I always try to get some pics when it’s bluebell season.

  • Israel Murders Three British Citizens

    Israel murders three British citizens in cold blood and still no sanctions, we’re STILL selling them weapons?? Can you see how twisted that is? If China or Russia had murdered three Brits, the world would be echoing with consequences. For apartheid state Israel – nothing.

  • Israel Tortured False Confessions From UNWRA Employees

    Remember when Israel said it had proof all of UNWRA was riddled with Hamas? And with this “proof,” they got their partners in genocide, the Western democracies, to withhold aid and thereby kill yet more Gazans? Turns out to be yet more bullshit and this time they TORTURED detainees to fabricate it. All this is…

  • Coffee With Robbie

    Just some pics in town, chuntering with Robbie.


    There is a woodlouse travelling across the vast plane of my carpet. As I pick up the woodlouse in my spoon and watch it trying to scurry up the sides, I wonder – is this the equivalent of a human space traveller falling into a wormhole? What incredible velocity is it experiencing as I transport…

  • Rock The Casbah (2013)

    From the opening introduction by Omar Sharif, I knew I was going to love this film, it was simply a matter of how deep that love would be. Well, it’s 9/10 deep. The story is that patriarch Moulay Hassan Bel Amor, (played by Sharif) has passed away and his family and friends are gathering to…

  • Derby Ceasefire Now Protest January 27th 2024

    Woah – there was a good turnout at the start of today’s protest, around 1pm. And the speakers, including Andrew Murray were great. But the best part is that the march around town at least tripled the number of people. After yesterday’s ICJ ruling warning Israel to not commit genocide, I feel like even more…
