It’s October 13th!

Happy Amazon Prime Day! Happy #NoBraDay too (I’m not wearing one)! Happy #OralBDay too! I’m sure there are a few more of these dumb hashtags we could celebrate, though if you’re in the party mood, it’s also my birthday, which I share with Paul Simon, Margaret Thatcher, and Sasha Baron Cohen! Very nice!!! There was […]

Ten PM

Eek. It’s already 10pm and I didn’t blog today. Been really busy with two cartoons (possible commission!) and writing a piece for tomorrow, whilst also followed the Senate confirmation hearing. Not much of an excuse for not blogging but it’s the only one I have. I’ll do better tomorrow, I promise…

Panic

It’s World Mental Health Day, which I don’t normally mark because I’m never sure who decides which days are which. Seems like a marketing gimmick to me… However, I thought I’d write a bit about about my own mental health after the last few weeks. It might help me today. I feel I need to […]

Wolverine Thinking

Political ideology can be such a crock of shit. This thought crossed my mind enough times in the past twenty-four hours that I thought I should write it down. Politicians often present their fundamental worldviews as though they are coherent, yet it’s so notable how so little of it makes sense. I don’t particularly like […]

Cheesecake

I have a new piece over yonder, which is a profile of Kamala Harris, who was always my pick for the VP place on the Biden ticket. In other news… I’m badly in need of some luck. Not that I believe in ‘luck’ but it’s better to believe in some transcendental power balancing the old […]

Jenas, Dimbleby, Lineker

Another day off today makes it sound like I’ve been doing nothing but this week has already been busy. Written two long articles (the second should appear ahead of tonight’s Vice Presidential debate) in addition to my other duties including pushing a wheelchair to a blood clinic. I’m still knackered and suffered a little yesterday […]

Trumpy

Donald Trump has just declared himself fit for the next debate. I don’t know what to say, except I guessed that he would. At the moment, the best way to anticipate Trump is to imagine the most ridiculous thing he could do in any given moment. That’s my conclusion, having done a lot of writing […]

Trump

I’m late to the blog, which is an indicator of my day being stupidly busy. Not just real world stuff but writing too. Politics is in a crazy place in America and Donald Trump is acting beyond the point where it can be rationalised as “disruptive” or “non-traditional”. Tonight he’s leaving hospital, telling people that […]

Donald & The Doctors

I’m sure I’m not the only person waking us this Sunday morning and watching that new Donald Trump video with a regretful degree of scepticism. I want to think good things about his recovery but how can you when you know you’re being played? First, the video was released alongside pictures of the President working […]

Finally Failed by Specsavers!

Felt like more of a normal day. Just finished a piece on the latest development in Trumpworld… Fascinating stuff. Should appear later today over at Reaction. In other news: the Welsh male voice choir are still camped out beneath my mother’s bedroom window and she’s getting mightily pissed off with them. I must admit, I’ve […]

Prize

Hard to get going today. A bit of normality – the thing I’ve been dreaming of for days – but I find that my brain won’t work. I think it’s exhaustion but it’s also hard to break that sense that I’ll be dashing around doing something in the next five minutes. My Mum’s now taken […]
