KATE RYAN – “Libertine”
Sometimes the English Channel seems wider than ever. In France a libertine seems to mean “smouldering pop princess with a great line in trancey synth riffs”. In England it means “junkie with[…]

Particle Physics Explained

Particle Physics Explained – this also talks about infinity!!
The best contender at the moment is String Theory- which has as the basic unit of physical reality a string vibrating in 9 dimensions.

My interest in old adventure fiction
Read post

My interest in old adventure fiction continues to grow with a rediscovery of a pile of John Buchan books I’d been given for Christmas years ago and turned my nose up at. I thought I’d kick off with The Thirty-Nine Steps, but I couldn&#821[…]

Like Momus?

Read post

A tradition Greek song, as mentioned by Homer in the Iliad, sung by Achilles and Hector after the prophecy of the death of Paris. Recently updated by The Gap Band in the ceaseless trek of modern popular culture to piss on antiquity. I did not mind th[…]

Read post
