A pole-dancer, you say? Blimey!

Most middle-aged Brits keep fit by doing pint curls in the local pub. But this one‘s found another, and arguably healthier, exercise…which, coincidentally, is also done in a lot of bars:

Economics for Dummies: The scariest poet in Britain?

Funny, he doesn’t look so intimidating to me:

But then again, I’m not a corporate tax dodger.

OMG, Adele is adorable!

Pardon my gush, but it’s true. She really IS a doll. She’s funny, she’s unpretentious, she’s blessedly drama-free in spite of everything she’s been through (how many pop stars can you say THAT about?), and she’s smart and nice, too. Oh, and she’s got the cutest accent — says fink and froat for think . . . → Read More: OMG, Adele is adorable!

Royally disgusting

Ahem. A little mood music, maestro:

Ah, that was lovely. And a timely reminder of the class of person we’re dealing with here: an unelected monarch who dares to try to shut up a democratically elected leader confronting him over Spanish support of a coup against democracy in Venezuela. Yes, that was Chavecito, and . . . → Read More: Royally disgusting

Photoshop du jour: A dream jam session

You say you want a revolution? You got it:

Can’t you just hear it?

Cops Behaving Badly: Fuck the Police (Before They Fuck You)

(Logo from the infamous Dave Rabbit sweatshirt, a limited-edition Vietnam War pirate radio joke product. Back story, in case you’re interested, here.)

Pardon my Anglo-Saxon and the explicit artwork, but given what shit is hitting the fan in Britain, it was only fittin’…

Venezuela’s gold comes home

Don’t expect to read anything good about this in your lamestream English media. And don’t expect to see these pictures, either:

Citizens of Caracas hold up a banner thanking President Chávez for bringing home the gold in the name of their sovereignty.

A welcoming crowd lines the streets of Caracas as the armored . . . → Read More: Venezuela’s gold comes home

Poor Pippa.

You really have to feel for this girl sometimes. Apparently her much-scrutinized on-again-off-again romance is off, for good: She is one of the most desirable women in the world, the beautiful younger sister of the future Queen of England with an appealingly mischievous glint in her eye. So when it was reported last week that […] . . . → Read More: Poor Pippa.

An open letter to Brendan O’Neill

Dear Brendan O’Neill: You, sir, are a fucking idiot. How’d you like it if I found out where you lived? What would you say if I ferreted out everything about you, from what you eat, to what drugs you do, to how and whom you like to shag, and published all the above right here, […] . . . → Read More: An open letter to Brendan O’Neill

Stupid Sex(less) Tricks: No cuddling, please, we’re British

Okay. Leaving out the obvious gender stereotyping that the media are crammed full of (guys don’t like to cuddle? Not in MY experience), it’s shit like this, Britain… A staggering 32 per cent of UK females admit they can’t stand cuddling when in bed, but force themselves into a clinch to avoid upsetting their partner.

The History of Oil

Ever see a stand-up comedy routine about oil wars and oil coups? This Brit does a fantastic job of taking horrible reality and making it hilarious. Without, I might add, diverging for one moment from the truth. . . . → Read More: The History of Oil

Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx occupies Wall Street

It’s one of those drizzly, autumnal days around here. Usually, just the kind of weather that would send a kitty indoors, to curl up on her humans’ laps, with her tail wrapped cozily around all fours, purring and not letting them get up. But since Ms. Manx is a cyberkitty, and in any case has […] . . . → Read More: Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx occupies Wall Street

Economics for Dummies: Mike Ruppert on provocateurs and the British riots

Mike Ruppert, a former drug-enforcement cop from Los Angeles who helped expose the CIA’s role in drug smuggling to the US, analyzes the London riots. These riots have an economic root, and it’s NOT what the conservatives of the British parliament would have us believe. This is actually global in nature, and the Arab Spring […] . . . → Read More: Economics for Dummies: Mike Ruppert on provocateurs and the British riots

Short ‘n’ Stubby: Ms. Manx looks at London

If the Stumpy Cat is meowing and pawing at my leg, I know there is something she wants me to address.

“I don’t call it rioting, I call it an insurrection”

Watch a BBC anchorwoman get a bad case of Teh Stoopid (as well as racism) against a respectable man: Darcus Howe tells it like it is. These are NOT just riots and looting, this is raw outrage by the British underclass at the police state the country is turning into. It is a raw cry […] . . . → Read More: “I don’t call it rioting, I call it an insurrection”
