I will just keep holding out for a northern socialist republic once coal somehow becomes very valuable again when it turns out it cures cancer. KING OF THE NORTH.

I guess if it actually happened and a misplaced Brexit vote swayed it this time, I could get a EU passport in 15 years when you get back in. If there is still a EU then.

Or Scotland.

Plus countdown to SNP heavily implying a vote for indie is a vote to stay in the EU, even more sketchy financial figures bout how this wont mean massive austerity esp now we know the oil that covered the last lot of sketchy figures isnt even really there anymore and worst of all... more cringey attempts by May to pretend to be a human being anyone could agree with on anything.

I saw this nerd movie. It was pretty meh, I liked the bang bang and the bazinga. But it was too badly put together to be good and not quite bad enough to be funny.

It had that DC movie feel where it seemed like you could have cut or rewritten a good enough movie out of the parts, the motley crew of bad guy rebels on a heist etc and empire power shenanigans, but as it was they were all painfully thinly written and the plot was nonsensically clipped and tone dry to point of boredom. Lots of wasting a really good cast.

The sassy marvin the murderous android got annoying pretty fast and the various cartoon characters were hilariously bad. The REFERENCES also annoying.

Would be interested in seeing/hearing how it was before the extensive cuts/reshoot stuff.

Though speaking of the hardships of being a rich important middle class person now (that I am, constantly) I really find most gifts given to me are..

Things I either own better versions of already (see - always being given cheap bedsheets and towels by aunts, do I look like someone who doesnt already have two egyptian cotton sets, I dont want this nylon atrocity)

or

Things I flat out do not want and struggle to pretend to like until I can get it to a charity shop (see - my mother getting me a 5 foot Jack Daniels branded picture last year to "decorate", I assume she thought I was opening a chain bar in my new house).


So I would appreciate that subtle "is there anything you are interested in" probing. As I try to push everyone politely down the route of buying me alcohol/toiletries/food as thats all usable or easily pushed on to someone else/shareable at xmas if not my thing.

We only have one kid in my family, but she is easy to buy for since I got her into superheroes and dinosaurs, so I mix up toys and books and vaguely educational sounding stuff around that area to try to combat the 90% disney and princess themed stuff everyone else gets her.

I am very lazy and uncaring. So I tend to just pair everyone in my family with a standard combo of consumable (booze for drinkers, toiletry sets for none drinkers) and then for an attempt at being personal everyone gets a book I think they will like. I am wrong about that like 70% of the time, but its the one thing I try to deduce. Though even this can be passive aggressive, as last year I bought my mother half a dozen books on islam and socialist values I grouped together in what I called the "stop being such a nazi" pack.

For a partner I just buy them a "big thing" I know they would want (tickets to something, a rice cooker, tickets to see a rice cooker) and then a bunch of dumb joke presents, usually based around nicknames or referencing places we went that year or things we are going to do. So to save on shopping complexity its helpful to give them the nickname "tesco value chocolate bar" early in the relationship and only take them to tesco

I went to see Dr Strango Unchained.

It was pretty good. Very much in the standard Marvel mould with good mix of action and comedy - but generic villain/origin story issues, but it had some more interesting visual stuff than normal and a slightly more creative ending.

Doctor Strango was very good, and as was Tildy Swintz (racist appropriator or not) and just a really strong cast in general.

There was a reference to..

If anyone knows?

Brexit campaign really missed a trick not pitching the SPL being watchable as a knock on result, could have got a Scottish majority.

Happy May Day everyone!

Though given the number of full on crazy and disgusting options, I am glad it was May, she is like... the least terrible monster? Its hard to phrase something positive about a Tory, but "you are not Gove" is high praise I think. And she is apparently of the few ministers who bother to actually run their departments, so she will be efficient at monstering at least.

And we havent ever elected a PM its a parliamentary democracy, so I am not sure I understand all the grousing from people about that, if she strives for a total new mandate she should definitely hold an election but I assume we will be business as usual from the Tory side. Close everything, piss on the poor, that sort of thing. But its really the party/platform you should be voting on even if you arent interested in your local rep.

But I think fixed elections bill was a dumb idea anyway, I love a good snap election.

Labour seems to be still imploding, but if Eagle wins, the three biggest parties would have female leaders. So that would be nice.

I think the post Brexit hysteria seems to be dying down at least, or possibly just laughing at the shambles of leadership elections has distracted the media, we might be back to NOW EVERYONE IS RACIST AND MONEY WILL BE WORTHLESS TOMORROW SO BURY YOUR GOLD NOW standard reporting soon.

So about 50 years of making any sort of public racism totally unacceptable just washed away in a week, brexit has made those who voted purely on "send refugees back m8" lines think the tide has turned and half the country was giving them the greenlight to bring back shouting at BAME on the street.

Give it another week, might as well bring back guns and become America.
