Obvious closet case is obvious.

Fuzzy thinking, especially when he jumps into music or the visual from his word-world without a thought about space or factyness…always bothered me that. But glad people are reading this. BTW The last sentence starts and ends the book, split in half…so the book becomes a loop. That’s probably the best thing about it, actually.
“When they say England invented punk rock, they’re probably just talking about Rough Trade East. Countless legends have walked through those doors” - no they haven’t. Rough Trade moved a few years back to Brick Lane, the original store (Rough Trade, not RTE) was in Ladbroke Grove, then they opened one in Covent Garden in Neal St (I used to visit there quite regularly). It’s all on the Wikipedia too, so no excuses…
It’s a complete rentamob, just like if you talk about China negatively or criticise white power orgs like Stormfront, they descend with all the same arguments and phrasing, suspiciously. I suspect they have a script or forums ‘watching’ this stuff. English White power sites do, I suspect the Russian neo-nazi & anti-gay ones do also for this.
Ugh the plasters and headache tablets are the worst…I hate cutesy packaging. Used to be kind of special (Innocent smoothies, Ben & Jerrys etc who I saw it first) and now it’s just corporates trying to be far too matey and completely horrible marketing blather. Copywriters should be ashamed.
If you’re wondering why it went from 28 to 27 as I was, this guy complained: http://twitter.com/AndrewJParker. How middle class is that?
you have no idea what a silver fox is…*sigh*
Not sure why my previous comment was removed, wasn’t flamey or nasty? I do want to add as someone who was creating websites and Amiga stuff during the time period this is referencing I do find it funny they’re complaining of being ripped off - when they’re blatantly ripping off Amiga demos & websites from the 1990s. They don’t own this style either. The lady doth protest too much, etc.
zOMG lulz from hipsters getting into a tizz. I mean ‘tumblr artists’ - ORLY? Save yr cod media studies words too…’commodification of an aesthetic movement’ ‘post internet’ - no-one mentioned the synergistic relationship of the post-modern hybrid of Freudian pop-culture blue sky thinking yet? Slackers. And also just because they take a day to do one of the badly keyed/badly edited productions doesn’t mean everyone else does…I doubt that Azealia video took, what, 1-2 days? Try weeks? Shoot alone would take a day, at least. This is just an offshoot of all that ironic use of Geocities type animations, VOB glitchy - I-frame fuckage and intentionally bad Myspace, animations, websites & videos referencing that. Been around years, and if yr playing the ‘I was there first’ game I suppose as a Geocities/Netscape old skool web designer and doing intentional hi8/VHS glitch in early 90s I was there first…eat that hipsters. The 90’s revival has been ‘on’ years before these people even were on Tumblr, or probably out of nappies. But anyway it’s not new - and definitely not owned by a few people with a very silly name (seapunk? Really? LOL).
