Knowing the Narcissist

  I have detailed previously why it is that we regard the act of impregnation as a material asset in the narcissistic armoury. It is not only the promise of impregnation, but the act itself and what this act creates that produces a whole host of benefits for our kind. This is the approach adopted […]

odern readers don’t need history degrees to understand the savagery with which followers of different religious views are prepared to torture, maim and kill one another. Sunni against Shia across the Middle East; Roman Catholic against Protestant in Northern Ireland; both are all too recent in memory. London, 1591. Queen Elizabeth has ruled England for […]

Knowing the Narcissist

I have an Inner Circle Friend. He is what people would generally regard as a ‘good man’. He is older than me, not old enough to be a father. More of the younger uncle who is solid but enjoys a little spice to his life. He tackles fraud in government organisations, enjoys a beer, loves […]

Our old green 1954 Ford Tudor sedan sat squat in the driveway. My parents bought it new from a west coast bootleg dealer before I was born. Most Saturdays when I was young, my mother and older sister dressed up to drive downtown in the Triumph and browse department store racks. They ate lunch in […]

I was running along the ocean on Lynn Shore Drive when I became progressively 1) tired; and 2) bored so I stopped running and started walking, into the adjacent “Diamond District” of Lynn. Yes, I’m embarrassed to admit that, after a lifetime of living alongside it, I do take the ocean for granted, but I […]

Framework Knitters

  I first visited nearly 5 years ago having heard about a “knitting museum” somewhere in Nottingham. Both myself and husband are always interested in visiting industrial heritage sites and museums  and I have enjoyed knitting and other fibre crafts since a child. So a “knitting museum” sounded interesting  but I really had no idea […]

There’s Euphoria, another TV show I’ve never watched but read about in, this time, The New Yorker Today. Euphoria — and I feel guilty and vaguely marginalized (I am Walter Benjamin’s voyeur) for using an app from a magazine I no subscribe to — is about the homeland generation, the generation I teach. I didn’t know all of […]

Interesting Literature

The plight of refugees is likely to evoke sympathy in all but the hardest of hearts, so it’s no surprise that some of the finest poets writing in English – including, naturally, some of the most politically aware – have written poems about refugees of different nationalities and the often harsh welcomes they’ve received when […]

Idiot Savant Bardcom

  Who was Joke () phine? My father figure—a secondary head of modern languages that took early retirement, and a sculptor in wood of raptors and big cats, who died aged ninety early in 2014—was a poorly constructed excuse for a woman (or neologism) that also took the material signs and display of a female identity […]

The latest edition of Wired UK magazine includes a supplement called WiredTime. It’s quite short, but worth a read if you think you will like the actual magazine. Ernest Jones are selling the Rado R22877025 for £720 at the moment which is a decent price for a retail jeweller. Finally, I spotted the above strap […]

I finally managed to get away for a short break. Shame it wasn’t abroad but Cornwall is pretty special, in its own unique way. Never been? I can’t recommend it enough! We left Friday morning and we were planning to return home the following Wednesday. The car was packed, and enroute down, we pitstopped for […]
