I always suspected The Sandman was pretentious but was never well read enough to know for sure. This never stopped me from enjoying it, however, and even inspired me to write tons of pretentious bobbins of my own* without the least bit of embarrassment. I mean, what's the point of being an writist if one can't pretend to be better than one is?

Anyhoo, I enjoyed the comics and I enjoyed this series.

Black Bird

Thanks for putting me on to this. A really good little show - and quite moving to see Ray Liotta one last time.

...Jenna Coleman...

Yes. I have no problem with a female in the role, but Coleman just isn't seedy enough. I initially found Lucifer to be a bit off as well, but the actor did start to grow on me. A bit.

Apart from those two little niggles, a cracking stab at the source material.

The Sandman. Some interesting - and often inspired - casting choices plus interesting adaptions are making this very enjoyable for me. The only downside is that I've binged too much in one day so only have two episodes left to watch tomorrow (or none, if I stay up too late - which means I'll miss out on some of my own dream time...).

Looks great!


First, make them watch the Stallone Judge Dredd film and then say "This. Isn't. Dredd," punctuating each word with a punch in the mouth. Next, make them watch Urban's Dredd film and then say "This. Isn't. Dredd. Either," punctuating each word with a hefty slap to the head. Finally, steer them towards the Case Files, threaten them with a sturdy stick and say, "figure it out for yourself, creep!"

This is more pure maths than science, but in honour of the current Prime Minister of England, I thought I'd share 3Blue1Brown's latest video on How to Lie Using Visual Examples
Just got around to watching this. I didn't understand a word of it (being a mathematical dunce) but I did enjoy it - though I enjoyed this one better. My solution worked but was completely wrong, and the real solution is a proper d'oh inducing headslapper.

While I don't think there's ever been a truly bloodless revolution, there have been a few with minimal violence. Gandhi had a decent stab at it (no pun intended), for example, and there have been others - indeed, most general elections are bloodless (if largely artificial) revolutions.

I've said it before; the only revolution worth a damn is a revolution of the mind. I believe we must begin with questions such as, are these people really the best we have to offer, and is the system that keeps them in power truly the best we can come up with?

Most of us, I believe, are pretty on-board with the wisdom of separation of church and state - is it now time to start thinking about the separation of party and state?

It baffles me why people put up with it.
