There’s less swelling now and a shocking lack of pretty colours. The steri-strips came off and the gunk underneath is the superglue holding it together. And I urge you to watch Rob Newman’s “History of Oil“, coz he’s far funnier than I’ll ever be, and talks like a guttersnipe, which is far closer to how …

Robert Newman’s “History of oil“. Its edumakashional. “The US is prompting world unity. Its like we’re all become one nation, called The Rest of the World, united by hated for the US.

Yes, this is me updating for the seventh day in a row, so its somewhat pathetic that I don’t have anything interesting to say today, other than: Did anyone else notice the huge invasion of birds this morn?

So what else is new? But this band is actually trying to be horrible. They claim to have no occult connections, but if winning the Eurovision contest isn’t a mark of the Dark Lord’s favour, then what is?

George Orwell on how to write English rather than management drivel. Simply, try to sound like a Saxon. Orwell’s example, from the King James Bible: “I returned and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches …
