“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.”

No-vaxx Novak

I did not particularly want to wade – or, in my case, dip, since my opinion is less than irrelevant to the wider discourse on the subject – into the controversy surrounding Serbian tennis legend, Novak Djokovic, and his ongoing battle with the wardens of...
Fartily ever after

Fartily ever after

There is a rather noxious, and honestly absolutely hilarious, story that has been trending for the past day or two, about a (really quite attractive) woman who figured out a brilliant new business model. She made $200,000 from it, in fact, before circumstances forced...

The Didact’s Best Albums of 2021

The Didact’s Best Albums of 2021

Unlike my rather paltry reading record this year, I managed to listen to quite a lot of great music. This is thanks in large measure to YouTube channels like NWOTHM Full Albums, which allows you to (re)discover some truly great stuff from obscure but highly talented...

The Russkies know how to program troll-bots

Say what you will about the Russians – I like them quite a lot, so I tend to be quite emphatically in favour of them (and their women, obviously) – but they really do have a sense of humour. Russian humour, however, does tend to take some effort to...
You MUST see The King’s Man

You MUST see The King’s Man

In today’s modren movie-making age, there are very, very few movies worth your time and money. Almost the entire corpus of action films released into cinemas and streaming services this year consisted of a horribly wearying, tedious, and profoundly stupid series...
Hark now, hear, the Dark Lord sings

Hark now, hear, the Dark Lord sings

Those of us who have followed Our Beloved and Dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) Vox Day the Most Merciless and Terrible for any significant length of time, are well aware of both his reputed and actual polymath abilities. This is a man who has done far more in his...
The scariest car… IN THE WORLD

The scariest car… IN THE WORLD

We do love bashing the Frogs around here, because, like James May, I generally think that “they [the French] are a bunch of treacherous, lamb-burning, work-shy peasants” and “idle Communists” who think that they have better cheese and wine than...
Let there be carnage

Let there be carnage

No, not the movie, I’m not bothered about whatever Sony and Marvel have cooked up together in terms of a sequel to the, quite enjoyable, Venom movie. I’m talking here about the latest trailer to drop from Amazon’s The Grand Tour, which showcases the...
The Hero

The Hero

If you have not heard already, The Hero Kyle Rittenhouse was found NOT GUILTY on all counts by a jury of his peers in Kenosha, WI, just about an hour ago. As you might expect, the young man, who has been through Hell itself, and who was convicted in the court of the...
