UNCENSORED ALTERNATIVES TO FACEBOOK

Like many people who are trying to share content online but having it censored, I have a long history of checking out different social media platforms. I’ve set up accounts on a bunch of platforms and tried them out. Some I liked, and some I didn’t. Here are my thoughts on some platforms. Although I’d […]

AND THEN I FOUND THE ANSWER TO EVERYTHING

EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT HIVE. Hive can be a bit new and confusing for anyone with semi-retarded tech geek skills. I started out lurking around on Steemit  in 2016, but even so I still had a couple of questions I’ve been wanting to ask about how to do stuff on Hive that […]

AN ANTHEM FOR OUR TIMES

This song can inspire us to resist our oppressors. Back in 1990 I was really into a band called The Pixies – I still think their second album Doolittle is one of the greatest albums of all time.  To me, the song “Gouge Away” is an anthem for what’s coming – it starts off hypnotically then […]

I JUST SAW A MOVIE I LIKED

I JUST SAW A MOVIE I LIKED And that doesn’t happen very often… Given that I recently did a post saying “all modern music is UTTER SHIT”, what about movies? While I do proclaim MOST modern movies are utter shit, I think are still occasional exceptions. And this is one I really enjoyed: Once Upon […]

LIVING VICARIOUSLY

Get a dose of speed. Long ago in the 90’s I was into the new sport of downhill mountainbiking. Back then we started out riding hardtails with three inch travel forks and it was like racing kango hammers. We got punished! These days I’m a broken old fart who makes creaking noises walking down stairs, […]

AWASH WITH EXOTIC CARS

COOL RIDES Once in a while a really cool looking ride cruises by and I do my best to get a photo of it. New Zealand is not exactly awash with exotic cars. We are a right hand drive country, like England, Australia, India, South Africa and Japan, and most cars in NZ are Japanese. […]

JOHN LYDON INVENTED ALL THE COOLEST MUSIC

JOHN LYDON INVENTED ALL THE COOLEST MUSIC There was a time when music was the real deal but that ended decades ago Most old farts know that John Lydon invented punk in 1977 with his band The Sex Pistols. Never Mind The Bollocks immediately changed the face of music.   Just one year later in […]

MY FAVOURITE ALBUMS OF ALL TIME

ROCK OUT AND GO OFF LIKE A FREAK Music is a very personal thing, and this is a list of my own favourite albums, not an attempt at definitive music history. All the descriptions here are copied from the music site All Music. The only original thing about this list is that it’s sorted by year. […]

BACK WHEN MEN WERE MEN AND CARS WERE AS WELL

BACK WHEN MEN WERE MEN AND CARS WERE AS WELL Get hard and go off Back in the 70’s “trans” didn’t mean some ladyboy in a mini skirt. It meant a hardcore car like a 1973 Ford Mustang Trans Am. No padded airbags up front And no extra fat padding for the arse either   […]

HOW TO REVERSE AGING WITH CHAIN SMOKING

 THE KILLS Music this century has all turned to shit, so it’s hard to find any bands that don’t suck. One of the very few good ones was The White Stripes. They kicked arse. And there is another duo that makes The White Stripes sound like Abba. The Kills. Imagine a guitar sound so heavy […]
