A Bona Fide Firestick

As we move through this period of COVID with the lengthy lockdowns I have sat in front of the TV more than I would be prepared to admit. I don’t have terrestrial television and refuse to pay for a licence, simply because I don’t use it enough or feel there is actually anything worth watching. I have 5 shelves of DVDs, mainly films you won’t find on Netflix or Now TV, possibly on Amazon, but you would have to pay the extra on top, which I feel is a bit much. These films I return to periodically, like a good novel, as they are such beautiful, in this case, cinematic experiences.

Everything is wrong. Everything is unjust. Everything is broken. Or is it?

There is a strong difference between conforming and working towards the greater good. There is an even bigger difference between wearing a mask and being under the illusion your freedoms are being rescinded. In this age of individualism and with its dangerous pervasive sense of entitlement it is very easy to fall into a trap and misread what is happening.

Bonfire of the vanities, one step at a time

On the 7th February 1497 in Florence, Italy, a bonfire of the vanities occurred where according to Francesco Guicciardini the destruction of objects took place that might tempt one to sin.

Coronavirus is a lot stronger than you think

Coronavirus is a lot stronger than you think. What did he just say? Yes, I said it: Coronavirus is a lot stronger than you think. You can show me all me the data you want, all the articles declaring it is no stronger than the flu, that wearing a mask is a lot more of a threat, that Sweden’s model is better, but look at what it has achieved. Just look at how easily divided we are. Look at the fissures in our societies. Look at the fear. Look at the ill education across the social media landscapes. Look at the incompetence of the government. Look at the huge spending on a ‘Track and Trace’ app that barely works. Look at the rise of completely illogical conspiracy theories. And look at the mistrust. All that from one virus. One virus. Now that’s an achievement!

As an artist or musician don’t retrain or rethink

It’s extremely hard to accept the words coming from a politician’s mouth, particularly when they are the richest person in the House of Commons with a property portfolio in the UK and America worth around £10 million.

I’m of course talking about Rishi Sunak who has been interpreted to have said in an ITV interview “Musicians and others in the arts should retrain and find other jobs.”

Facebook is the new TV

If you don’t know yet, you should know that the reason for Facebook’s existence is not to help you engage with others, share photos, give you freedom of speech or enable you to organize and protest. I cannot help but laugh when people on Facebook post about how their freedom of speech is being taken away when it changes something. Facebook is a business, it is not here as a platform for freedom of speech, in fact freedom of speech is anathema to its business model. Its single sole function is to make money, and how does it do that? It sells us, its users to advertisers. The same model used by TV for many years apart from the BBC which we all have to pay for to see the endless repeats of shows from over the years past.

In yer face!

The face mask is extremely divisive and interesting. There are those who feel they should wear it, who believe the virus is contagious and don’t want to either catch it or pass it on, particularly to the elderly. There are those who don’t believe the virus is as problematic as it’s purported to be, that it’s an attack on our ‘freedoms’ and just a huge cash cow for Big Pharma. And then there are the clearly insane who think we are only a step away from the Nuremberg trials, who obviously never attained their GCSE in history and have no idea of one of the most heinous genocidal crimes in the last 100 years, all fighting for Katie Hopkins hot spot.

Excerpt from Celebrity Rape

Arranged in front of Marcus, horizontal in the proverbial doggy-style position with hands gripping headboard, the mid-to-late thirties blonde female thrust her well-kept, taut, gym tight, ersatz tanned body, graced with little hair, back and forth on to his Viagra-fuelled cock. She was naked, apart from the obligatory porn star style heels of course for added sexual effect. The heady mixture of wine and cocaine had pickled their brains enough to run through the perfunctory motions of coitus after being digitally matched and brought together by a dating app now simply used for nothing more than a seminal release.

The New Normal

‘The New Normal’ is a phrase you will have heard over the last few months to describe the current state of our existence as we stare into Zoom meetings, watch gigs online, walk around with face masks across our mouths while keeping 2 metres apart from others and unable to travel across the world.

To be ‘liked’ or not to be ‘liked’, that is the question

Shakespeare famously wrote in Hamlet back in 1601 “To be or not to be” and pondered over a state of being alive and dead, questioning the human existence and what comes with being alive, the pain, the torment and what comes after death, the freedom and closure of life.

The emotion is false, use your intellect

It’s interesting to note that the two places in the world, the USA and the UK, who boast frequently about how amazing they are, global leaders ad nauseum and all that other arrogant nonsense currently have the highest deaths of coronavirus.

Our leaders now appeal to our emotions and not our intellect. This is known as post-truth. Watching Boris Johnson talk about how amazing the NHS is and not mention how it has been recklessly destroyed by the government with years of austerity cuts shows absolute disrespect for the public, just watch Tory MPs cheer after blocking a pay rise for nurses. Is there suddenly a huge nationwide collective amnesia?

Coronavirus in a Post Truth era

As the dust starts to clear, the panicking slows down and the nation settles into a life of social distancing and quarantine, we are able to see the truth start to emerge, if we truly seek it, but not before some drown in the plethora of conspiracy theories.

Woody Allen, post-truth and the court of public opinion

To ban a book because you don’t agree with its content is one thing, to stop a book being published because you don’t agree with an allegation against the author that has been proven to be false ‘twice’ in the court of law is madness. But this is a sign of the times. The post-truth period in which we currently live in.

A passport to Brexit hell

It’s interesting to watch the tribal minds of Britain in action. For instance on a recent post on Facebook I detailed how our passports from January 2021 will have to have 6 months left on them in order for us now to travel to European countries due to Brexit.
