Sarah Palin on foreign policy...



Just imagine how well she'll be able to negotiate with Iran on it's spinning of centrifuges in it's attempt to get ahold of nuclear weapons. I imagine something like:

Palin: "Fiddly diddly sticks, stop spinning those spinny things!"
Iran: "It's our inalienable right to... [blast Israel of the map] "
Palin: "You arabs are all the same with your spinny centrifuges and funny hats!"
Iran: "We're not arabic, we're persian."

Fucksakes. My wit fails me. This is like something out of Southpark.

Oh man, there goes the neighbourhood! [Aug. 25th, 2008|06:27 pm]

Walking out to get some Indian food takeaway I see some little heads popping up and down behind a fence on Brockley Cross across from a block of flats (one of which has aptly had letters removed from it's name, thus changing it from "Conifer house", to "Conifer Use"). Up pop two little head screaming "surprise!". Two cute little kids, one little black girl with ponytails and bobbles, one pudgy little boy. Cute kids I thought.

Then the way back the little boy jumps out with a sharpened bit of coat-hanger and says, "gimme all your money!". I laugh, and then he starts swearing at me and trying to shove me (not very possible - if he makes it to his GCSE's he may learn some physics which proves this). And he's like "You think I'm fucking kidding?!!" Calmly, I prise the coat hanger spike out of his pudgy little fingers and chuck it over the wall. Resisting the urge to drop kick him, and probably instantly kill him, I walk away. Dude. WTF?

Now, I know I did some stupid shit when I was a kid.. but that.. man, that takes the cakes. I swear to god I thought David Cameron was about to walk around the corner and tell me about Britain's Broken Society. This is the sobbing wretched stuff they fill Daily Mails and Suns with. Or BioShock - Six year olds with fucking bits of pointy wire and their creepy little sisters? Where's my EVE?

Not really shaken by the whole thing.. kinda morbidly amused... but I kinda wonder.. I mean, a lot of people going down there wouldn't think twice about kicking his head in. I'm almost tempted to make one of those concerned citizen calls to the police, but at the same time, I can't be bothered to waste an hour helping the old bill locate the little shit, and possibly dealing with his godawful and cretinous parents (who were probably the people staring at me from the Brockley Social Centre).

Breeding licenses people!

Once you pop... [Dec. 18th, 2007|07:54 pm]
Abby Katt
Does anyone remember the original Pringles jingle? I think I first remember hearing it about 10 years ago (I was in Africa at the time). It all seemed quite genius at time, and we it was a catchy little tune. How things have changed. There is no reference to it anymore on the cardboard tube...

Then again, an MSG-loaded fat-transporter with the slogan "once you pop, you can't stop!" is probably open to new interpretation nowadays. Like lawsuits.

That aside, no E. London line train party this weekend as it seems everyone is away to see family etc. I'll be in the Dev on Friday after work drinking away the pain of my 29th birthday. Hopefully I'll see some of you there!

Story [Dec. 15th, 2007|06:07 pm]
Abby Katt
I have finally found the introduction quote to the story I'm writing....

"With lightened baggage he continues his journey, with steadily increasing velocity, towards nebulous goals. He compensates for the loss of gravity and sentiment d'incompletude by the illusion of his triumphs, such as steam-ships, railways, aeroplanes, and rockets, that rob him of his duration and transport him into another reality of speeds and explosive accelerations."

-Carl Jung, 1961

City of Lost Children... [Nov. 28th, 2007|11:04 pm]
Abby Katt
Someone added the City of Lost Children (some obscure French film-translated into English) onto my amazon DVD rental list. I'm still not sure who. The IMDB lookup comes up with some bland description of "a circus heavyweight searches for his brother" which makes this sound rather lame. It is completely not. Apart from the poor voice-dubbing (it sounds similar to the type of thing you get in Japanese-English dubs in places) this is a truly incredibly steam-punk film. There are so many beautiful brass-based-devices I can't decide which to make and which just to marvel at - it is literally a goldmine for any steampunk based designer/fan. In places the film really feels like a cross between Dark City and Final Fantasy 7. Almost every shot in the entire thing being in some obscure steampunk metafuture - including a glowing brain in a fluidtank encased in an oak and brass-case, eerie oilrigs (on which the misunderstood baddies live) and submarines. It's very dark, incredibly industrial, and quite humorous at the same time. The dubbing is probably the worse part of it, which is sad as it lets down what is otherwise an incredible film, but I can truly see this becoming a cult film of sorts. Did I mention the Cyborgs? There's a fantastic scene of a cyborg church with about a thousand Sammpa's all worshipping away! If you get a chance, drink a half-bottle of good French wine and start watching this - then drink the second half with the movie. Bon Appétit!
