I would very much like to put something up here, but I’m afraid that it could fuck everything up, so I won’t. … Looking back on it, blogging here has been a mixed bag. In the early days I posted reactionary political opinions which I’m thoroughly ashamed of now, but thankfully they were mostly washed [...]
It still lacks a proper blogroll, but other than that it looks like the good folks over at The Living Deadbeat have cobbled together something entirely worthy of your attention.
Mr. Chainsaw has some sage remarks on advertisements at the cinema over at The Living Deadbeat.
I check out Trent Reznor’s Twitter every day, but I could probably do without reading stuff like this.
If you don’t like me, my blog, or the things I have to say on my blog, then maybe you shouldn’t read my blog. Just saying.
Ta-Nehisi Coates at The Atlantic. Matthew Yglesias at Think Progress. They’re both written from a left-wing/progressive perspective, and they can be very, very funny too.
Old blog post. New Threadless design.
This post contains a whole lot of misdirected aggression, but I really fucking hate it when people abuse exclamation marks. Here’s a prime example from a student email: Please be advised that Dr Lucy James requested that the Signpost session on Friday 30th January is from 09.30 – 10.00!

Given my liberal inclinations, reading his posts is generally a bracing experience, and frequently causes me to look at issues in a slightly altered light. For [...]
Ross Douthat writes for The Atlantic, and I highly recommend his blog to everybody, particularly those of a leftward persuasion. He a very talented writer who blogs thoughtful and well-considered posts from a conservative perspective.
… every time I wish my blog was awash with witty comments and heated debate it morphs into a barren desert of apathy? I mean, it’s never the most happening spot in the blogosphere, but it’s been very flat for the past week. I know complaining about it doesn’t help; I’m only writing this so [...]
It seems to be tanking faster than the Clinton campaign.
Maybe it’s just because it’s late, but the headline of this Economist blog post brought a smile to my face. And of course there was also this picture: And a reader left a rather funny comment after the post where this picture of idiotic GOP bumper-stickers appeared: All taken from the excellent ‘Democracy in America’ [...]keep looking »
