    I taught a small class of people how to write limericks today and cited this because it is a slice of comedy gold.

    Glastonbury was classtonbury.
I’m not even sorry for saying that so don’t bother asking for an apology.

  4. I don’t know what to make of the situation in Gaza. I’m definitely more sympathetic to the palestinians because Israel has little right to be anywhere near as brutal as they are being but the actions of neither side are conducive to an adequate solution. Either way, a ceasefire needs to hold up because innocent civilians have never and will never deserve a decimation.

     
  5. I’ve been googling Red Pandas for an hour now and I don’t think I can stop myself any more.

  6. Put simply, one of the best band names in indie music. Put even simpler, a great band with great songs.

  7. watching daytime TV

    If, like me, you have spent a day or two camped in front of the television during time off, you’ve no doubt encountered the rusty rollercoaster on offer from BBC1 during the hours of 9 and 5. Why do these programmes exist? Why do people make them? Why am I not outside enjoying the heatwave?

    All of the excitement kicks off with fifteen minutes of “sensible journalists talk to some guy from an ageing rock band about a gig in a pub in Wiltshire” at the end of BBC Breakfast quickly gives way to the lo-fi office documentary of “bald blokes talk to old people about old people who died” or the rather less illuminating Heir Hunters. No this is not a load of super cool, Russian bounty hunters searching for the long lost relatives of Tsar Nicholas II. “I’ve not seen David since I was 45 in 348 A.D in the Visigoth kingdom so it is a shame that he’s dead,” said one mothball-agglutinating participant shortly before cackling to themselves about the money they’ve just inherited from a bloke they hated. Now I sit here waiting for my ageing angel to deposit unto me a slice of their semi-detached in Surrey.

  8. After a while away from it, my mind always wanders to London, then through it as if flicking from page to page in a catalogue of my memories.

    Did you know MIND charity or whatever doesn’t believe in any the use of diagnoses? They’re not treating anyone but I still found it a bit unsettling.

    UK. FUCKED

    Yeah a charity shouldn’t really need to have an opinion on the people it is trying to help, right? I didn’t know that about MIND though which is really disappointing. Diagnosis is obviously difficult but it is 100% required. You wouldn’t just say a heart attack doesn’t need diagnosing! Neither can be treated by jasmine tea and dancing in leaves and twigs though for sure.
