I'm the bloke in White Town

I also write for Sound On Sound magazine and am fascinated by anything to do with music making or tech.

Don't be a dick. If you're impolite, I'll just block you.

If you're offended by the word 'cunt' - do not follow.

Look at this list of headlines from the "left wing" Guardian:

https://theguardian.fivefilters.org

Fuck me.

Future historians will have a great time with this obvious campaign to oust a socialist from Labour leadership and replace him with a Thatcher-worshipping genocide apologist.

We are in the mess we're in now, with #MaggieStarmer purging anyone who once coughed loudly in a non-Tory way, because of The Guardian.

We have a liar as Labour leader. We have a genocide supporter as Labour leader. He makes fucking Kinnock look reasonable.

I will never forget or forgive them. And every ruling class lackey who writes for them.

#GenocideJoe and #MaggieStarmer - what a pair of utter, utter cunts.

Both of them think brown people are NPCs.

I hate that I'm a radical extremist in that I don't think it's okay to bomb children.

Makes life really tough, talking to reasonable people who set me right on why it's okay to bomb refugee camps.

Hopefully, soon, I'll be fine with stealing people's land and shooting children in the legs deliberately so they can't play football.

Remember - IT'S COMPLICATED

is TEN FUCKING YEARS OLD

it's a motherfucking decade old!

jfc, my sense of time is like a crusty old tortoise.

I still think of it as a recent show.

Anyway, if you haven't ever seen then you haven't seen the best TV show ever made.

You have missed out on art that is intricately numinous, beautifully immanent.

"Halt and Catch Fire" premiered 10 years ago and went on for four seasons and 40 episodes. @polygon's Devan Suber describes how the beloved AMC show understood the draw of video games better than any show that's come before it. "In the words of Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), the computer was always 'the thing that gets us to the thing,' a vector for connection, expression, or some other deeper human need."

@Jyoti BTW, the reason I am on a rare tear blogging is maybe not the healthiest of ones, which you can read about on my other blog here if you're interested. TL: DR steroids for Crohn's for looming dialysis at some point = energy and focus, at least for a time.
And, I have a plan for a wee series of posts on 'The greatest TV shows you've never watched', and of course HCF will be first ;)

Decisions decisions.

Tomorrow is a rough anniversary (both of mum passing and of hers and dads wedding anniversary) so I like to get out.

But I have options. UK Games xpo in brum, which pre covid and his passing was where we used to hide.

Or just take myself off for a day out somewhere like York.

Decisions decisions.

A great question:

"When we speak of resistance against murderous oppression and the fight for survival and freedom, do we only bother about the past? Are we happy with it when it is so comfortably distant as to be amenable to kitsch? We have the Black Panthers in photo books and Malcolm X on our walls – then why not also the PFLP and Abu Obeida? Is revolutionary politics a posturing about the past, or about real struggles that happen as we speak?"

If I got a dollar for every single time an ignorant liberal told me that I was dehumanising people because of my clear and unmovable condemnation of Nazis and genocide...

@vruz

Don't you get it - killing babies is now a debate. Sometimes, very rarely, it's for the greater good!

Therefore, voting for people who directly fund killing babies is doing good.

Only radical extremists don't think civilians are legitimate military targets.

@Asenzi and I made it home from last night! Meant to update then, but we were both exhausted.

I'll probably post a few belated pictures of the over the next couple days. Our next con is Trotcon starting July 12th, so keep an eye out for that too!

I saw TROTCON and thought, yaaay, they're going to a Trotskyist summer camp..

Has anyone got suggestions for a UK merch site that both manufactures the bits and sells them? I'd like to sell t shirts but also mugs, badges, bags etc?

I just tried teemill but the design software kept freezing / losing products so that was a wasted couple of hours.

I'm aware of Redbubble, Spreadshirt etc., what do you use?

Here's my music:

https://songwhip.com/white-town

I love that I can bung you one link which then has every service my music is on, plus other stuff.

Well, sadly, is shutting down.

So, lil tooters, what is the best alternative to Songwhip? I've just gone through a couple of 'BEST ALTERNATIVE' lists and they were obviously generated by drunk AIs. In a coal scuttle. With low batteries. Just awful.

I'm hoping you ugly bags of mostly water can do better?
