  7. Another fine post on the Adam Curtis docu-blog. From leaks to leeks. http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/adamcurtis/posts/THE-VEGETABLES-OF-TRUTH

  8. Going to have to tweak my # aggregator. #'s 256 character node titles weren't designed to accommodate academic article titles.

  9. Catching up on old # A # one concerns "scotch independence". I'm even more in favour of this. Mixing is a waste of both whisky and soft drink. They should be enjoyed separately.

  10. Funny how ownership of two football-field-sized yachts isn't shocking. It takes the image of some poor bloke in a dinghy, wearing a plastic mac, with a net on the end of a pole, to make one think "oh, that really is outrageous!" http://ur1.ca/ie8lu

  11. Larry Ellison allegedly has a motorboat following his yacht to retrieve any basketballs that bounce overboard. Does rotation to this post explain @andyc's periodic online silences, I wonder? http://toomuchonline.org/americas-ridiculously-rich-the-2014-edition/

  14. Good point. It's not so much a question of "don't hit women" as "why would a mature adult hit _anybody_?" http://thesocietypages.org/feminist/2014/10/09/dont-hit-girls-football-and-our-culture-of-gendered-violence/

  15. That Petrol Emotion. Brilliant, but not adequately preserved on the Pirate Bay. Must do something about that. I have Manic Pop Thrill on orange vinyl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXAfWKOgo2Q&list=PL7BD6E2C5AB880286&html5=1 #

  16. So the "Denis Thatcherite" # wants to expel foreign workers but attract foreign owners. A curious kind of nationalism. http://www.lrb.co.uk/v36/n19/james-meek/in-farageland

  17. I can never entirely write off #: "don't be like Russell Brand and bum holes like that. If you don't vote, you don't count. You've got to start local. There's f**k all on TV, so go to town hall meetings and give them f**king hell." http://ur1.ca/idf36

  18. To survive financially, # authors aim to get on the school curriculum. Dull books that tick the boxes of worthiness are the result. http://www.theguardian.com/culture/australia-books-blog/2014/oct/13/the-abcs-the-book-club-a-case-of-cultural-cringe-writ-large

  19. @vanden Touché. You made me guffaw. With nothing; in nothing. You win the Internet - for this week, at least.

  20. I have been rereading Strunk & White and chortling with delight throughout. If you think being opinionated, supercilious, and often wrong is a bad thing, I don't know why you'd bother to read or write at all. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Elements_of_Style
