I have put a new thing on under 'Warmonger of the Week'. It is just a series of direct links through to some of my favourite articles and things that really help explain the mess we are in and what we could do about it. I will add to it as I go and am happy to accept suggestions.

    could have just put them as links but i can't resist the temptation to tinker with the template sometimes

    Hi dude,

    i really like your site, there's a lot of good information here. Do you mind if i put a link to it on my blog? I don't have a political blog, i can't get up enough enthusiasm to keep up to date with everything that happens. Which is why reading yours will be useful, you'll do it for me :-)

    Good idea, and yeah, it'll keep me busy for a while as well.

    I was glad to see the 'naming the problem' link. I would suggest going a step further: naming the solution. I suppose you're somewhat familiar with Michael Albert's work...well, my official suggestion would be linking to something on Parecon, seems to me it would fit over there.

    you're embarrassing me. you know more about my politicians than i do AND you're a punk-assed YOUNGSTER to boot (i mean that as a compliment by the way)

    i was a touch on the wrong side of drunk when i posted that last night.

    JOS - interested to hear what you have made of it.

    Hello Michelle - link away!

    Rose - i'm not young enough as far as i am concerned. not yet 30 and i already have some grey hairs. the weird thing is that they grow faster than the normal ones

Thumping The Tub Video

Image Hosted by

I have made a few short movies. Here are links to free downloads for them all in the order that I made them (as far as I can remember). Please feel free to use, distribute, disagree with, shout at etc etc

  • Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition
  • This was a REAL song from World War 2. I was so stunned by it I had to make a movie

  • How Far Is It From Here to Nuremberg
  • This is my attempt at a video for the excellent, if worrying, David Rovics (see links) song

  • What You Like
  • I believe the word for this is "splenetic". Only 20 seconds long.

  • Imperial Measures
  • What is going on in Iraq? Some things you knew, some you didn't. A couple of bits of info are out of date now.

  • Wish You Were Here
  • Wish You Were Here is a 6 minute film about the unprecendted rate of animal extinction we are currently experiencing

  • Gorillas and us
  • I don't like creationism, neither did Douglas Adams

    some of the blogs I look at
    Arse of the month

    Image Hosted by

    The inaugural 'Arse of the month' award goes to our very own Scottish First Minister Jack (Joke) McConnell. He seems to spend a lot of his time sucking up to english politicians and yet it appears they don't even know his name. Follow the link to see..
