The butts of our own jokes?
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.

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…

A scene from a film that won't ever be made
While doing some research for a new music video I lost a whole morning (as regularly happens) to the wikipedia black hole and spent I don’t know how long reading about Yugoslavia. Not wanting the morning to be a right off, I wrote this…

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.

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

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?

Stop eating crap and reach for the cabbage, cabbage
Working artist and a new mum. Funny how your perception changes when you’re no longer just thinking about yourself. My blog cherry.
