“In Palmares, in keeping with the cosmologies of Congolese and Angolan societies, magicians had been banned as inimical to the king’s authority. Among those people it was most often the case that legitimacy of authority and the very existence of social order were concomitants to the eradication of sorcery and…

Disclaimer: this is a parody with some serious points to make. I’m angry. I am here to illustrate how the Conservative Party doesn’t even look after it’s racist, homophobic, transphobic, horrid little fanbase. How vile and horrid and dangerous Torythink is. CW: racist, homophobic, all those things will follow. I…

Well, England’s a fucking mess isn’t it.

It would simultaneously be too easy and too exhausting for me to list every single one of England’s (and note, I do not say Britain’s) terrors, mistakes, and outright cruelty during this, the latest history lesson for homo sapien sapiens. If you are…

For the first time in my life, I could enjoy Christmas without being in absolute agony. The pain of living with Crohn’s Disease had rendered it impossible for me to enjoy my Mum’s Christmas dinner, the plethora of cheeses on Boxing Day, and even sitting and watching a film was…

Recently, I was admitted to hospital with a Hb count of 29 (apparently a new record for the gastroenterology ward I was situated on); as most people are meant to have a value closer to 90 or 100, I was informed that my heart could have stopped. If…


I’m An Anarchist, Whatever One of Those Is

When I was a younger man, I had decided I was an anarchist. Following the George Carlin school of voting, I never wanted to participate in our corrupt systems, as I did not wish to become a part of the problem; I never wanted to be to blame for The…


I will never understand why this episode happened.

I am a grown man, who has ten years experience writing and developing stories and scripts, who studied scriptwriting for three years at university, who pays close attention to the gods of storytelling, the theories that preside over it, and the convoluted…

“To call someone a “writer’s writer” sounds obnoxious, as in, “This book isn’t for civilian eyes. You have to be one of us to get it.” I know a better word for people who think this way: assholes.” — Anna Fitzpatrick, A Book About Writers That Even Civilians Can Enjoy


“You are forcing your agenda on the artists and obliterating their intentions. This is absurd virtue-signaling. Your job is to show artwork- do your job! Curators gone mad” — trale.tevis

There’s a reward at the end of this rant. Some of you will not like it.

It’s a curtain. The curtain represents a curatorial decision to express a political statement relevant to our times. It shields…
