    Mr Rotten – That lyric vid is pretty much the best I’ve ever seen. Amazing what you can do with just the words. I don’t know who did it, seems it might’ve been Abkco, who is an independent label. The track is another Stones anthem of course.

    Btw your track about Liz is another anthem, as Rabz played earlier. Here’s a PiL version with some very fine graphics.

    How I feel about existing in the West (such as it is) …

    How I feel …

    Dead Souls

    Not much Joy in that IMHO……………..

    Try this for a Larf’

    The title may be from the Russian novelist Gogol’s unfinished novel Dead Souls which was in part about the decadence of the Russia aristocracy nobility and how serfs burial sites were counted as living serfs to increase their tax share. Curtis had a tendency to reference literature: Atrocity Exhibition(Ballard), Colony(Kafka), and there are hints of T. S. Eliot references. Atmosphere has the phrase “walking on Air”, which might be a reference to a statement by Wittgenstein about how people live the religious life.

  14. Booker Prize-winning Wolf Half writer Dame Hilary Mantel dies aged 70

    Dame Hilary Mantel, the two-time Booker Prize-winning author of Wolf Hall, has died aged 70.

    Dame Hilary’s death was announced Friday by her literary agents AM Heath and publisher Harper Collins. She “died suddenly yet peacefully yesterday, surrounded by close family and friends”, they said.

    Best known for her acclaimed historical trilogy about the life of Thomas Cromwell, 16th century English powerbroker, Dame Hilary won the Booker Prize twice – for Wolf Hall and for its sequel, Bring Up the Bodies.

    The conclusion of the trilogy, The Mirror and The Light, was published in 2020 to huge critical acclaim. Longlisted for the Booker Prize, the final novel also won the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction, which she first won for Wolf Hall.

    Dame Hilary was “one of the greatest English novelists of this century”, HarperCollins said.

    “Her beloved works are considered modern classics. She will be greatly missed.”

    The Wolf Hall trilogy has been translated into 41 languages, with sales of over five million worldwide. Both Wolf Hall and its sequel were adapted for film and television.

    “She will be remembered for her enormous generosity budding writers, her capacity to electrify a live audience, and the huge array of her journalism and criticism, producing some of the finest commentary on issues and books,” her agent Bill Hamilton said.

    “There was always a slight aura of otherworldliness about her, as she saw and felt things us ordinary mortals missed, but when she perceived the need for confrontation she would fearlessly go into battle.”

    Yes you did. I find it amazing that so many people have not heard of The Australia Act which removed ALL legal and political connections with the UK which means we are in all but name a republic. There is therefore no need for any change. If you rebranded the GG a president that would do.

  19. Eels win! That put a smile on the beloved’s face.

    He turned 70 yesterday – I’m now married to a septuagenarian! A very youthful one.

    Leaving Zagreb today for LHR, but not before visiting the town square for one last time. Sadly it was packed with activists of the vegan/extinction rebellion/greenpeace genre. Soyboys and earnest, unhappy looking girls. The stalls were interesting – all advertising and selling products that looked like meat but weren’t. Why do they do that? If vegetables are so wonderful and healthy, why disguise them as something else? It smacks of deception.

    GG/presidents, appointed by the PM/Premiers (or by a joint sitting of both houses where there are 2 houses, or popularly elected, the most dangerous alternative) add an extra check and balance. Under the constitution the current GG has some definite powers and reserve powers. If you get rid of the GG and involve the court the separation of powers gets diluted.

  69. Stop repeating the same thing.

    You’re beginning to sound intimidated.
    You claim to have obtained personal information ….. how did you obtain this?

    Was it my name that gave me away? (Salvatore Stupid) you looked me up in the white pages?

    You don’t have to reveal any of this …. confidential… information you have on me, … just how you obtained it.

  70. You’re pitiful Driller. Absolutely pitiful and don’t think the blog owner isn’t aware that you start all the stoush trolling against me. He is. It’s hard to hide without a decent crew of pile onners these days, hey?

  71. You’re delusional

    So speaketh one who claims to have confidential personal financial information based on nothing more than a blog name.

    Sure.

  72. Go get the clearance

    Nobody is preventing you from obtaining a clearance.
    After all, it is you who so badly wants it.

    I thought you’d dug yourself a pretty deep hole when you chickened out of a serious bet.
    Turns out you can dig deeper.

    Seek help dude. Seek professional intervention, before you blow a gasket old man.

    Tell you what Driller. Obtain a clearance from the blog owner that I can publish private information about you and I’m more than happy to show you.

    That way you won’t be hiding and you won’t be able to peddle dishonest crap about yourself every again.

    Even better, why don’t you just go away to another Blog and give us all a rest. You are like a Broken Record. Boring, boring, boring. And vote for Desperate Dan in Stasi Victoria…………………..

  75. Cultures and food is always an interesting subject. Both parts being endlessly fascinating.

    I ate truffle pasta again last night. I could smell the glorious waft as it came from the kitchen.

    In the market yesterday the small stalls had a wealth of different types of mushrooms, from the beautiful golden chantarelles to meaty porcini and some enormous field caps. There were some I’ve never seen before.

  76. Salvatore is my second name, dickhead. You’ve no idea of my first name of my surname (they’re both far more unpronounceable).

    Lay out your methodology for knowing how I do not own the pub. Start with… er.. how about the … starting point.

    ………GO!

    Lol, that’s persuasive. Everyone will believe that.

    There’s nothing to dig and there was no serious bet. You lied.

    Driller, you don’t own a pub. It’s been a lie for years.

  78. You want this “clearance”, you’ll have to grow a dick & balls and contact Dover yourself.
    You do not require Dover’s blessing to tell how you know personal information about me.

    Perhaps you’re intimidated by Dover?

    Thanks Dover for this blog. I hope it continues into the future and wish everyone here all the best.
    Yeah, yeah, I know, the libertarian farewell “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out”.
    Won’t be sharing any sort of space or replies with you from this point on J.C. I wish you good health, ongoing prosperity and happiness. Look after yourself.

    No, because it wouldn’t be true.

    Can you take Driller and Turtlehead with you? Both would add a ton of value to the Lollipop cat.

    Stop making shit up. I don’t have confidential financial information about you. No-one needs to have your confidential information to know you’re publess.

    You’re about to lose serious face on this blog if you can’t show that much.

    Oh please. You’re such a drama queen.

    Calm down. Of course I would need a clearance because you’re more than aware that would be doxing otherwise. Stop trying to send us on a squirrel chase. I’m not being coy.

    The info of course could be wrong as it was told to me.

    You say your middle name is Salvatore, but in the past you’ve told us it was a made up name. Also, you’ve often said your heritage is British Isles. Forgive me, but I didn’t realize salvatore was a popular Anglo name. You’re making shit up as you go along.

    1. You once told us it was made up and someone picked you up of the fact that you had confused Salvatore with you previous blog name, steve. You thought Salvatore was the Italian equivalent of Steve. You fuckwit.

    2. You’ve also described hating people of an Italian background.

    3. You’ve said you’re Anglo and Salvatore isn’t exactly a popular Anglo name, you big idiot.

    …but this summer, the supply was contaminated by raw gas which means the CO2 is useless and has led to a shortage of the gas that is critical to the brewing industry. You know where this is going: the supply chain is being wrecked and prices have jumped as a result.

    There is an alternative – mead – non carbonated mead.
