the sky was a deep indigo as i walked to the paper-shop (at 6 am !);
I was convinced that today was Saturday,
which is why I was buying the paper {free TV guide, magazine etc.}
in the first place. The Good News my paper cost only 70p rather than £1:40,
so I appear to have saved 70p; the bad news is that in reality I spent 70p
that I should not normally have done.
I could have saved 50p
by walking up to campus, but

a). the union shop isn't open
that early [change of tense ?] and

b). it is deeply
uncool to be seen on campus out of term time, people will
assume that I actually work !

c) I don't normally buy Newspapers Tues-Friday

All this means that I am probably, on a subconcious basis,
eagerly expecting/ anticipating
( you decide)the new term.
I'm not; I don't have any lectures, because

a) I haven't been offered the work

b) I am not taking any courses

c) I am still officially on the sick

[ the nice new labour government removed my disabled living allowance,
so now I have to claim the sick, and stop working when my condition
flares up or I have an episode,
instead of working around it, and people
question why I never have and never shall vote for the unmentionable little shits ! ]

Still on health; the low-fibre diet seems to be helping with my weight; i have definitely put on weight and appear to be retaing the same. however my skin and joints are not so good as a consequence
; that said it is probably preferable to th cortico-steroids....Hmm..must go and see the quack before the start of term..whoops! starting to go round in circles...time for breakfast!

Sunday Bloggy Sunday

Digital media

So yesterday, I decided to spin a cd that I had bought about 3 or 4 years ago, 5 at the outside, and had played a mere handul of times.
. is so knacked as to be unplayable;and yet I bought it to ease wear & tear on my 45 year old vinyl recording..
.so CD is less durable, It's digital, which is a less than perfect representation
of the analogue ( even infinite word length & infinite oversampling only gets
you back to the analogue)BRING BACK VINYL...
.ahh but there is a snag isn't there CD was supposed to be cheap and nasty as people couldn't
afford decent record players [then or now ]..
.OK so it seems that cheap and nasty digital media have their place....


Olympian Coverage

Is it me or have the recent games been and gone without anybody noticing ?
There seems to have been little or no coverage......perhaps it is only my perception, as at the last games I didn't have multi channel TV , and therefor had little choice but to follow the games. Speaking of little choice;
Has any one else noticed that Sunday's viewing on Free-view is mostly a repeat of Sunday ?
In fact I reckon that there now exists absolutely NO REASON for possessing any
tele-visual recording device, as most programmes are repeated several times per diem/mens/annum ...thus rendering even archiving unecessary...Not so much Tele-vision on demand as, we bought this crap and are now going to ram it down your screech non-stop for
the rest of your natural....GGRRRRRRR

Pointless Movie remakes

I noticed that Ch5 were showing HARVEY today; unfortunately it was a crappy remake..WHY?   WHAT IS THE FUCKIN POINT of re-making these films.?..You cannot improve on them...C'mon Hollywood...MAKE SUMMAT ORIGINAL AND EARN THOSE PAY-CHEQUES

Tasteless Euro Beer

The other day I thought that I shoud try a few glasses of the much-vaunted Carlsberg Export; Perrier has more flavour...Why do people waste their money on this shite?....Odd as Special Brew DOES have flavour; over-brewed tea flavour, BUT nonetheless it does taste of something !

So a big thank-you to those unbearable bearded twats fromCAMRA

more anon

Just one more thing

the other day I went accidently over-drawn by £4-70 ...yes LESS THAN A charge item fee £35 plus £28 unauthorized o/d fee......yes that's right £63 charge representing a interest rate of nearly 1500% , I thought that there were laws against usury..well HBOS I NAME & SHAME YOU

To Hell in a handcart

Mega-Blog Sunday 17 August

this blog entry might be somewhat dis-jointed , and make little sense. I am very good at verbal ranting, sermonizing etc., but when it comes to putting pen to paper I am lacking, which since I am in the middle of writing two books is a bit of a problem!

When JFK said NO to Russian missiles in Cuba, the World gave a sharp intake of breath. Kennedy was right, and Kruchyev wrong. Now, the situation is reversed, and America wants to erect a "defensive" shield in Poland. This is the biggest dumbfuck of an idea that I have ever heard; there are pieces of dead wood that have more awareness than Bush. He makes Hitler seem like a reasonable guy who was just a little bit confused over the Jewish issue.The sooner somebody assassinates this guy, the safer will be this planet!

Now the snivelling shits want to take over NATO isn't kicking enough butts...well now George old bean, let me tell you this; even Alexander the great got his ass kicked in Afghanistan, as did the Russian regular how the fuck are you American softies going to achieve anything ? FUCK OFF trying to run the world you tyrants. This planet doesn't need you!

And you can stuff McDonalds & Bill Gates up your big fat smelly arses

On another topic entirely , a woman got shoved off a railway pltform for telling two men not to then, this should be an Olympic sport. Why stop at the anti-smokers? perhaps we could defenestrate the ant-hunt brigade, or the badgers-are-more-important-than-humans nutters could be hunted with dogs.

According to Persian mythology, Mithras was born of a virgin given the title 'Mother of God'.He was born in a cave, where,as a babe-in-arms, he was visited by three kings.

The god remained chaste throughout his life, and valued self-control, renunciation and resistance to sensuality among his worshippers. Mithras represented a system of ethics in which brotherhood was encouraged in order to unify against the forces of evil. The worshippers of Mithras held strong beliefs in a celestial heaven and an infernal hell.

They believed that the benevolent powers of the god would sympathize with their suffering and grant them the final justice of immortality and eternal salvation in the world to come. They looked forward to a final day of Judgement in which the dead would be resurrected, and to a final conflict that would destroy the existing order of all things to bring about the triumph of light over darkness.

Purification through a ritualistic baptism was required of the faithful, who also took part in a ceremony in which they drank wine and ate bread to symbolize the body and blood of the god. Sundays were held sacred, and the birth of the god was celebrated annually on December the 25th. After the earthly mission of this god had been accomplished, he took part in a Last Supper with his companions before ascending to heaven, to forever protect the faithful from above.

Sound familiar ?????
