Blog

Category: Society | c: | m:

Y'know things that are all the rage? Blogs. Everyone has one; or at least had one before Facebook, Twitter et al diluted the realtime pool.

Since I'm nu-old skool — and watching endless streams of people having a midlife crisis reduces my vocabulary to four letter words — I figured why not make a blog? The main difference here compared with other people's blogs is that instead of being limited to one topic, you get a little slice of everything all mashed up. Who says I'm late to the social party?

  • Making little changes

    · 347 words (laps up about 2 mins)

    Self-improvement is not restricted to once a year as a New Year gig. It’s a continuous process. Let’s all change one little thing. Today.

  • The letter of sex

    · 1508 words (wastes about 7 mins)

    Gimme an ‘L’. Gimme a ‘G’. Gimme a ‘B’. Gimme a… ‘T’… ‘I’… ‘A’… WTF? I can’t keep up.

  • Media, charity and the art of caring

    · 1588 words (munches about 8 mins)

  • Election 2017: the clear winners are us

    [2 comments] · 1082 words (vacuums up about 5 mins)

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaa. That’s me laughing at the cocksure Conservatives who have given the UK another hung parliament. Which is actually fantastic news.

  • Adam Smith faces investigation for feeding people

    · 752 words (devours about 4 mins)

    Trading Standards have clearly nothing better to do than prop up our throwaway society. Commerce over common sense has to end.

  • Football violence is built into the game

    · 1243 words (vacuums up about 6 mins)

    Ask anyone for ten things they associate with football, and pretty high up on everyone’s list is the word ‘hooligan’. Turns out there’s a very good reason for this, and it’s not what you might think.

  • Brexit: the eternal scapegoat

    · 761 words (devours about 4 mins)

    All the political parties are in turmoil after the EU referendum result. Nobody has a plan. Nobody wants to deal with it. Fine, I’ll do it then.

  • EU exit: the aftermath

    [1 comment] · 1066 words (kills about 5 mins)

    So the UK narrowly voted to leave the EU yesterday. According to my Facebook stream, the sky is now falling. Can we gain a little perspective please?
