Bollocks

EMILY HILL

In the early 80s, operatic singer Klaus Nomi was at the crest of New York’s club scene. However, his untimely death from Aids in 1983 cut him off in his prime, before the world truly had the chance to appreciate his vibrant and bizarre performance art. It probably makes sense to begin with someone who […]

Daily Blasé

By Blase Johns 26th April 2019 Complete cockwomble Stephen Yaxley Lennon was told by police to stop breaking election laws, by trying to influence racists and xenophobes with free kebabs and pepperami pizza’s. While spouting utter bollocks about the working class being betrayed by establishment elites, while sporting a GUCCI £1.500 checked wool-twill blazer and […]

Love and Power

Strength! Oh, strength enough to endure the world; strength too with which to affirm rather than endure. —Yes, yes, yes! Life-affirmation is orgasmic, let there be no doubt about that. All of life affirmed and enhanced, all the necessary aspects—insignificance, estrangement; suffering and melancholy pleasures… Oh—where are your battle-scars: show them, reveal them, flaunt them! […]

Winging It

I think we can all agree that social media is a hellscape. Twitter is full of Nazis, Instagram is a one track path to making you feel bad about yourself, and Reddit… we should just burn down Reddit and never look back. But the grandaddy of them all, Facebook, is the platform that I have […]

Puff the Magic Dragon by Chris Green Before he met Prism, John Straight seemed destined for success. He had a Degree in Business Management from a top university, a big black BMW with bull bars and he was willing to travel. In a word, John’s future looked rosy. He was the son of Sir James […]

A LETTER by a father to his baby daughter explaining why he chose roast dinners, frequent flying and a fast car over her future has gone viral.

BILL'S BLOG

It’s three o’clock on Thursday morning. Eight minutes past three to be precise. There’s not a sound to be heard. We live by the coast and can normally hear the waves, but the sea is particularly still tonight. Silence. As usual I’m lying awake, thinking. It’s been more than two weeks since Dr Westwell dropped […]

The Top-Hatted Dev

In which I finally pick a game library, after much procrastination, and have a really, really hard time installing it.

I recently read Philip Pullman’s La Belle Sauvage, the first part of a trilogy called The Book Of Dust. Overall, I enjoyed it, but was a little shocked at the number of swearwords—not because they didn’t fit the boy speaker’s way of expressing himself—more because of the likely age of most readers of the story.

I started this post with the intention of it being a book review, only to find that I wrote almost the entire length of a post about values, which barely even touches the surface of the topic of the book. So, the review has been postponed and instead I’d like to talk about values. In […]

Mum’s the word

First of all apologies for another long wait in between posts. I’m stuck in a bit of rut at the moment and when you’re stuck in a rut mentally, it doesn’t half affect being stuck in a rut in reality. I have nothing to add creatively to this blog at the moment so this post […]

Mast Cells & Collagen Behaving Badly

It’s not always easy to live with chronic illness.  I know that sounds like a blindingly obvious statement, but actually there’s a lot of pressure to be positive, accepting, calm yet still fun, both from other people and ourselves.  It’s fucking exhausting and if grades were being awarded for handling chronic illness well my entire […]

Malediction of Nagash

Continuing my trawl through White Dwarf of yesteryear, I turn the ship toward the competitive end of the spectrum and go off about an article I never read at the time.
