Vile Victorian Headwear

this morning went to The Swarthmore Education and Indoctrination Centre for first session of course on 5 Rhythms Dance.

with a name like ‘Swathmore’ methinks them dodgy Quaker types mite be involved….

Over the road from Swarthmore is a statue to one of the Vile Victorians, I forget his name, he was a Mayor of Leeds it would seem and they erected a statue of him complete with the traffic cone that he always wore in public, it was the fashion in those days and it takes all sorts……

The traffic cone lends a certain dignity to a City Father

Here he is from the side

maybe I can be a City Father one day….

And proudly looking down on His wonderful Vile Victorian City

it’s wot traffic cones were invented for….

If you want to get a head get a hat

Hyde Park Moonshine

Well, you learn something everyday. Was cultivating friendship last nite at a party in Hyde Park when we did partake of Hyde Park Moonshine, to wit Pimms, Rum and Lemonade. Sip it! Don’t sink it! Or you will end up talking to God on the porcelain telephone again. I am too old for this…. My fault for drinking vodka with a Finn I suppose…. Cheers Han and Amy if you are reading this.

The Joy of Socs! (part one of an occsaional series)

Ah Societies Fayre! And indeed the Student Experience! The University of Leeds has probably the greatest range of non sports societies for any University in these Islands.

Beer holds the Universe Together!

As Scotty would have said “Ye CANae change the Laws of PHYSOCs Jim!”

The Tories.  Today actually…

Ah Conservative Future, still rather colourful despite Jason Sender having repatriated himself, hi Jason if you are reading this! he was doctored first....

another view of the tory stall and a very nice midriff

not too keen on war myself, it is a rather rough sport…

Well, they are the jollier sort of people…. Save a war! Not a Hospital or School or indeed a Russell Group University. Funny how Blairite their policy on war and occupation is…..

And now a bit of Pink, not a Conservative Lady as far as I can tell. But you never know…..

european geography (part one)

I was watching “A Bridge Too Far” and it opens with a caption “ARNHEM, HOLLAND”. As it turns out I had a big atlas next to me so paused and looked on the map. Would you believe it Arnhem is in Gelderland not Holland at all….

The Netherlands yesterday.  Not just Holland

All About Swinging

Got a message at myspace from a chap. My reply is below, I thought it was pretty good so will post to blog. If anyone knows all about swinging feel free to enlighten me.



> Just thought I'd send a message to say that I like your mean 'n moody stare!

news to me, but thanks anyway

> Tell me more about swinging!

what i know could no doubt be written on the back of a postage stamp so here goes.

one email contact said that there is a difference between swinging and wife swapping, but since single chaps aren't welcome anyway, it all seems to amount to the same thing.

Perhaps one day i will finally produce the sexual hierarchy flowchart, with smug married monos (including the respectably gay, the respectably gay looking down on the respectably hetro no doubt) looking down on the polyamorous, in turn looking down on swingers, in turn looking down on single men, especially terminally single men.

blessed be


Swinging of course

Once a Blogger!

A fellow blogger a few months ago referred to my “abandoned blog”. Eh?!?!?

No, I have not the slightest intention of abandoning my blog. Where I go months without posting it is because I am horrendously depressed, ill and low in energy. I have a lot more to say. Attention. We are dying in spirit through lack of it.

Once a Blogger! Always a Blogger!

Im Ranting again!
