To be honest, when it comes to gore, I can take it or leave it. This third time however, with the ever inventive pornographic violence, and some further extended examples of John's cutely twisted philosophising and poetic monologues, it results in easily the best instalment.

This blog's degenerating into a fucking restaurant guide. I do apologise. However, while I'm in Dusseldorf right now, I can't not recommend Robert's Bistro here. The menu almost defies you to choose something that isn't going have you salivating like the ravenous wolf I know you're brazenly dancing with right now.

And I remember that it was in that beautiful room that she was quietly screaming the need to be released from the double bind, the inner conflict, the sheer helplessness of not knowing whether she should be begging me to stop, or begging for me to continue doing the same thing. I continued.

By the way, you heard it here first, there is a new album planned for early next year.


It's invisible and I can't ever remember feeling so unsettled; that feeling that one tantalisingly, incredibly, pricelessly, valuable thing needs to be done. It's not exactly an unhappy feeling, in fact it should be the prelude to some kind of higher inspiration. Shouldn't it?

My cousin just got in touch with me about this. She loves writing and recalls, at the age of 7, making up a magical story about being chased down a rabbit-hole by a giant beetle. Her parents loved it. Why? Because it was 'childish', so when she was 14 - and still writing - being 'childish' was no longer allowed so she found she had to start faking it, pretend that she was somehow adult by being 'intelligent' or 'sensitive' or 'humorous' or 'mature'.



OK, you can call me a bit old-fashioned, but in relationships I have 2 or 3 rules before I'll go out with someone, and one of them is to always call a person's bullshit. Like lateness. I try to always show respect and turn up on time and expect the same in return. So if a woman's wilfully late, I'll say so and give her a nice smack on the ass, and then demand she kiss me hard to make it up to me. It really works wonders.

Is our best creative work because of or despite our education?

You often hear teachers and parents disparagingly refer to children as if they were immature adults, and perhaps it's time to stop and rethink. And really rethink. I say most adults are atrophied children whose fire has long since been extinguished. There are so many of them everywhere, all of them with their fucking opinions. Bitter, uncreative, closed-minded, frightened, unimaginative and often hostile individuals permanently scarred and internally damaged by their education and upbringing.

The experience of the Consumer Electronics Festival in Berlin was perfect, shattered only by next morning's getting to the airport and being told by GermanWings that the flight to Oslo is delayed by at least 3 hours thus missing our SAS connection to Bergen. The weather conditions are perfect, so, with 11 hours to spare, surely there must be some way of getting to the show from Germany's capital city?

The answer calls into question the adage that you have more choice about the way you live than the way you die.

Is it really over 3 months now since I started this blog? Hard to believe that.

Anyway, just wanted to add a book recommendation to this topic: Spanish investigative journalist Pepe Rodriguez's 470pp classic La Vida Sexual Del Clero (The Sexual Life Of The Clergy). Amazingly thorough and detailed in its scope, it packs in everything from paedophilia, prostitution, sadomasochism, illicit affairs, homosexuality amongst monks, priests and their charges, cover-ups, you name it - all meticulously researched.

Also of interest is another of Rodriguez's works, this time a fascinating primer on the techniques and strategies of investigative journalism.

Warning to Manson fans and neo-apocalyptic folkists: this won't interest you one bit. Joseph Atwill, redoubtable author of Caesar's Messiah, is working on another magnum opus, this time with his study on the book of Revelation. You can now read his early draft; it's heavy-going yet well worth your perseverance.

Why do you have to be DIFFERENT from everyone else, man?

Because we CAN.

But hey, we know what's KEWL, and we are SAFE here TOGETHER with our knowledge of what's KEWL.

That, my friend, is WHY we're DIFFERENT, for TOGETHER you may be SAFE... but WE are FREE!

"What profit has not that fable of Christ brought us!" Pope Leo X

Sex Crimes And The Vatican edition of BBC Panorama

Not like any of us should be in the slightest bit surprised by any of this, there are only about 2,000 years of institutional precedence reminding us why Christianity (along with its apologist servants) is still the most worthy target of utter disrespect.


Have felt excessively inspired today for absolutely no particular reason, is it a full moon? In the process have captured some infernally fucking grandiloquent ideas for new material.
