  • 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…

  • Bring Back The Blitz Spirit (Of Taxation)

    The current biggest con is the disparity between the 1% and the rest of us. Upper-middle-class people are brainwashed into thinking they’re the 1%. They’re not – they’re paupers compared to the actual people ruining the planet. The clue is in the number. The 99% us need to join together and remove 99.9% of the…

  • No Fancy-Schmancy For Me!

    So, I was trying to book a fancy restaurant and nearly committed till I saw they had a dress code which said no sports clothing / trainers. I have an abdominal hernia which means I have to wear certain types of top for comfort, polo shirts usually. And the oedema in my feet means that…

  • Mastodon Is Full Of Twats

    I posted this lol: And I got this amazing reply from a twat: Name redacted because, let’s face it, this person must have a tough enough life already, misunderstanding everything the universe throws at them. Fuck me, Mastodon is full of absolute cunts, innit?

  • Fuck The World

    How I know I’m now officially a Grumpy Old Git: I find the medicalisation of every aspect of human behaviour within a previously normal spectrum to be increasingly odious and ridiculous. And, obviously, I blame American culture and, specifically Big Pharma. The more “patients,” the more pills, the more profits. Wilhelm Reich was right: how…

  • I DO NOT Want A Lego ‘The Lady Vanishes’

    SO – I bought Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes on iTunes and was appalled by the crappy encoding. This amazing film was rendered into a blocky, cyberdelic nightmare of hanging faces and shifting backgrounds. I complained. Apple told be to get bent. SO… I complained again. And they caved. Never give up. Be the squeaky wheel…

  • On Mr Zuckerberg’s New Threads

    2008Zuckerberg: ‘Hey, we’re a cool new app – can we have your time and personal info? We won’t fuck you with it.’ Me: OKAY! You’re so cool and hip and cool! Lemme give you my entire personal life! THEN~ Cambridge Analytica, Trump, Brexit ~ 2023Zuckerberg: ‘Hey, we’re a cool new app – can we have…

  • Matthew Healy – Another “Ironic” Racist

    During the conversation, Healy mentioned that he once messaged Ice Spice on Instagram, which opened the floodgates for Friedland and Mullen to refer to her as an “Inuit Spice Girl,” saying: “This chubby Chinese lady. ‘Yeah, I rap and [make] music.’ Do they talk like that? Do Inuits talk like that?” What followed was their…

  • 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…

  • Fatphobia And GPs

    Me: Doctor, I’ve broken my arm.GP: It’s cos you’re fat. Me: Doctor, I stood on a nail.GP: It’s cos you’re fat. Me: Doctor, I’ve got a bad ear infection.GP: It’s cos you’re fat. Me: Doctor, I’m fat.GP: Have you tried eating less and doing more?Me: I was first put on a diet as a 7yo.…

  • Why Billionaires Are All Evil

    If the vast majority of people reading this suddenly became billionaires, you know what we’d do? We’d give it away. Or put it into foundations. Or fund food banks totally. Or gift our entire country free ubiquitous wi-fi. Something constructive. I don’t think any of us would keep it all. Me, I’m old. I would…

  • My First NFT

    Here’s is my first NFT offering, the first person to offer me ONE MILLION SPOUNDS receives the PNG file. I promise I haven’t copied it much. And pngs are un-copyable anyway. Also, there’s no NFT as I cba. It’s yours in Zuck’s EvilCloud FOREVER. #bargain #HighArt #FuckNFTs

  • The Curse Of Atemporality In Tech-Saturated Late-Capitalist Cultures

    Consider… … the sea of muddy kids in the crowd, a sea in movement as well as density. So many humans, packed into a small space together, bobbing around every which way. Shit-eating grins, sodden jumpers. And not one phone in sight. Don’t worry, this isn’t some Back To The Land, Look Up-type post, entreating…

  • Fucknut Winklechips

    Just got banned from a Berlin Models & Photographers group on FB I was hoping to find a nude model on for my visit to Germany in October. I checked all the rules and regs before I posted so I can only conclude that they kicked me for a surfeit of FUCK THE POLICE posts…

  • Helping Google With Their Vids

  • Per Ardua Ad Astra

    From “aliens built the pyramids” types to moon landing conspiracists, there will always be people who deny humanity’s capacity for sheer, utter brilliance. Here’s to the humans that make the impossible happen and the ones who died trying. <3

  • Dump Trump 4/6/2019

    I just got back from the Dump Trump protest and I’m fucking knackered and falling asleep but I had to process and post these pics while they were still **now**, you know what I mean. Already, I’ve seen complete bullshit in the bourgeois media, saying that only “hundreds” were protesting. Were were there in our…
