Gallows Humour on a Sinking Ship

The butts of our own jokes?

Gallows Humour on a Sinking Ship

So here’s an image of a thing that happened. Probability suggests you’ve already seen it. Cameron et al talk about reducing public spending at a luxury banquet surrounded by a bunch of gold shit. I’ve seen it as a meme, and parodied by Daily Mash already, coz when you think about it, it’s pretty fucking funny.

Parasites and Apathites - an aphorism

edgar roy green, 02.11.13

Advice for life

For the most part it’s not the government, or it’s individual members, who’s actions make me so angry. By their nature they’re deceitful, greedy, power-hungry leeches. Of course they’re invading countries so they can get control over their natural resources. Of course they’re checking all our emails and our phonecalls. Of course they’re using their influence to surpress particular news stories and ideas which don’t serve their agenda. Of course they’re taking our money off us to pay for it all. That’s just what they do. Their goal is to do everything they can to preserve the structure of the system they’ve built which allows them to maintain their power, wealth and status. It is what it is. We’d be fools to expect them to do anything less. Getting angry at them is a bit like getting angry at the parasite on my neck, sucking my blood. That’s just what it does. The person I should really be angry at is the dude standing behind me who can see it sucking my blood and doesn’t bother to flick it off – he’s the asshole, and the fool, because if there’s one on my neck there’s surely one on his too…

"If you think Game Of Thrones is bad, you need to watch Conan The Barbarian"

edgar roy green, 07.04.13

Look at this fucking gimp!

Yet again, another argument about good films, bad films, “arthouse films”. Yet again hearing a line like “If you think Game Of Thrones is bad, you need to watch Conan The Barbarian!”. Well, I DO think Game of Thrones is bad – because it is bad – and I’m not watching Conan The Barbarian.

Kimya Dawson / Carl & The Motos / Patricia Piccinini

Not quite managing to avoid comparing Kimya D to a balding old monster...

Kimya Dawson / Carl & The Motos / Patricia Piccinini

I love Kimya Dawson. I’m actually in love with her a little, I think. When I casually mentioned this to my girlfriend she seemed genuinely jealous, which really puzzled me – so I had to think about why? Why should she be jealous of this little love and why don’t I consider that jealousy to be justified?

The Wobbly Chair aphorism

edgar roy green, 07.04.13

Advice for life

Imagine every chair you’d ever sat on was wobbly. You’d just assume chairs were supposed to be wobbly – because you’d never experience a well-made chair. Well, 90% of people would. Then maybe 10% would ask, what the fuck mate? These chairs suck. Let’s make better chairs. And they’d try and make better chairs, but probably there would never be enough of them that enough people experienced better chairs for it to take off, plus the folk that make ibuprofen gel have probably got a lot invested in wobbly chairs. And most people that they tried to tell about would likely respond with animosity anyway. Aren’t these chairs good enough for you? Chair snob. Get to fuck.

An aphorism on the externalisation of blame

edgar roy green, 04.04.13

Advice for life

Don’t get mad at me if I call you a stupid cunt. It’s not my fault you’re a stupid cunt. If you don’t like being called a stupid cunt, stop being a stupid cunt.
