As Michael hinted at the other day, there are now two tubs that shall be thumped from this site. The other is mine. Two heads are better than one and all that. Just hope I can match his standard (I need to be sycophantic, it's his blog really).
I'm sorry to whine as well but I too am rather busy just now. So sorry if the initial posts are rather short and sweet. This should change. I'm mainly busy due to my job as a government office drone. We're talking mind-meltingly, joy-sappingly busy. Right about now I'm wishing for the abolition of work.
This brilliant essay, which I only came across very recently through a friend's recommendation, just about sums it up. Or how about these anti-work sentiments in Is work bad for you? Talk about a rhetorical question! These facts and figures on the same site make for interesting reading as well.
It's sad that so much of our lives are taken up with just earning though, isn't it? I don't want to lie on my death-bed and think - "That office job was shit, every day like the last, disappearing into a chasm of apathy, tedium and fights over staplers. But it was steady and paid the bills, so it was worth it - wasn't it?".
I need to hatch a plan to escape, before I go off my chump. You may be able to notice my steady decline into insanity on this very blog, until my posts consist of the likes of "RaRR!!!! Must kill Th£M ALL!". Could be sooner rather than later.

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
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..
If you like this site and think it is time to start getting informed here are a few real favourites of mine that will help you blow away the corporate and government propaganda you are constantly bombarded with. It is added to every so often.
