“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Batman RIP

Batman RIP

I am obviously rather late with this, but I couldn’t let it pass by without any comment. Kevin Conroy, the one and only voice of the Batman, is dead. He died a few weeks ago after a short battle with cancer, apparently. I only realised it after watching the...

The obligatory “I hate sportzball” note

No repentance, no forgiveness

No repentance, no forgiveness

There has been quite a bit of traffic circulating of late about an article by one Emily Oster of a rather disreputable toilet-paper substitute (not a very good one, at that) called The Atlantic, in which she called for a “Pandemic Amnesty”. The responses,...
The season finale of Lvov Boat

The season finale of Lvov Boat

I am assuredly WAY behind the times on this one, but all I can say is that I have been extremely busy for weeks now, so my appetite for tabloid trash has been rather in abeyance of late. However, for those of you who have been paying attention to such things, you may...

Lettuce prey

As you have no doubt heard by now, Prime Minister Chucky, aka Liz Truss, is no longer in charge of PommieBastardLande. She resigned earlier today, to the surprise of just about nobody, after spending just six weeks in office. That makes her the shortest-tenured Prime...
