Bad machines wrong moves

Comfortably Numb

We are all just mammals and vertebrates. We didn’t exactly evolve from angels, we just happen to be their poor relations, or physical manifestations. So we are a special case. That’s you and me liv...

Goodbye Me You

Goodbye Me You

Saying goodbye is as natural as going to the toilet. Like a tadpole whose body eventually sucks in its own tail, we absorb our loss and make the most of it. We are after all made of pure protein. I...

Eat my Art

Cash Strapped

Xmas wreaths that pop up in October are a bit like Billy Porter in a dress. Quaint, but we’ve seen it all before. Planning a party when the world is such a mess seems selfish. But people are always...

I'm not the nude guy

Pigs can Fly
