This is from a few weeks ago. It’s 40 minutes long, so it’s possibly only of interest to other Nine Inch Nails fans.
This actually isn’t so bad after all. Alpro Soya yogurts are delicious, I can still eat plain chocolate, and some days I make up for lost calories in my diet with lots of alcohol. I’m also doing more cooking, which is more fun than I thought it would be, and I feel pretty good generally. [...]
This debate is a little tiresome and legalistic, but in essence the Minister for Justice Dermot Ahern has proposed making blasphemous libel a criminal offence, punishable by a fine of up to €100,000. This article provides a bit more context, with Ahern explaining that he has to introduce a law like this since it is [...]
“Never thought i’d say this but… come on arsenal.. If united were playing the nazis with hitler in goal an my ex bird up front i’d be supporting the tashed one an co” From PeteF96, commenting on an article on Football365.
Frequent readers may recall this little outburst of mine from back in March, which resulted from NIN posting details of a European tour that at the time consisted entirely of festival slots. Fortunately, Trent subsequently added some arena shows to the tour and now I’m happily going to see them play in Amsterdam in July. [...]
I’m not eating any animal products for one month as part of an agreement/wager with a friend, who has agreed to try vegetarianism for one month. We haven’t decided on a forfeit yet, so feel free to suggest one. It should probably be food-related, like eating a block of butter or something along similar lines. [...]
This isn’t on any of the band’s albums, so I hadn’t heard it before now. It’s a good song, but it kind of makes me sad listening to it and thinking about all the brilliant music the band could have gone on to make had Kurt not killed himself. Redundant and unoriginal thought, I know, [...]
I’ve said this to some friends recently, so apologies for repeating myself to them, but ever since Trent Reznor started twittering I’ve been avidly following his tweets and I think I finally understand the appeal of those silly celebrity magazines that some women buy. I’ve never cared about the daily life of Brad Pitt and [...]
I check out Trent Reznor’s Twitter every day, but I could probably do without reading stuff like this.
The people who do medicine are awesome, and if you disagree then fuck you! (Disclaimer: utterly inebriated post, but the sentiment still stands. One of my best friends does med, and he’s one of the nicest, most considerate guys I know. And everyone in my class is really nice too. I genuinely feel bad for [...]
Hilarious Limp Bizkit medley. Live in Seattle.
From the BBC: A court in Sweden has jailed four men behind The Pirate Bay (TPB), the world’s most high-profile file-sharing website, in a landmark case. Frederik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Carl Lundstrom and Peter Sunde were found guilty of breaking copyright law and were sentenced to a year in jail. They were also ordered [...]
This is what YouTube was made for – Scar from The Lion King singing Richard Cheese and Lounge Against The Machine’s cover of ‘Down with the Sickness’ by Disturbed. Awesome.
A very strange story from Kenya about a guy who spent three hours struggling for his life against an enormous python.
One of the better results of dropping out of med school has been that I’m having one of the longest runs of good sleep in my life, with the result that I’m having plenty of interesting dreams. Usually they’re exciting in a good way (apocalyptic survivalism scenarios where I’m leading an unruly band of real-life [...]keep looking »
