    That generation of men are almost all emotionally stunted. Not allowed to have emotion.

    And I feel that on a symbolic level it's special. For me it is. To have a representative of Marks cadre return to us and intergrate. Maybe just sentimental but to me it feels healing.

    Stockholm syndrome isnt it. Not Copenhagen.

    Who is this poetix?

    He's like a visitation from the divine upon the scorched earth.

    He had a blog back in pre-dissensus days. Part of that rabble. One of Marks crowd. Very intellectual. I didn't really understand him to be honest but more recently I found I could talk to him on Facebook. Which maybe surprised me a little bit, but in a good way.

    My uncle (dad's older brother) is the most nostalgic person in the world. His capacity for carping on about the good old days is the stuff of legend. He's also colossally selfish. His two kids have somehow turned out pretty well but he shows very little interest in the two lovely grandchildren his daughter has given him.

    Anyway, I heard a story from my dad that helps make sense of this, a bit. Their father was an extremely no-nonsense Welshman, mining stock, grew up in dire poverty in a Swansea slum, fought in the war. Moustache. Pipe. When my uncle was two, gramps decided it was time for him to put away childish things, so he took the boy's dummy, which he was still very much into. But he didn't just throw it away. He took it into the garden and burned it. Actually burned it. Like an offering to some nameless elder god.

    My dad has his own issues but he's Mr Emotional Intelligence in comparison.

    Anyone ever seen a porno mag with the pages stuck together in real life? Seems like one of those things like slipping on banana skins that always happens in stories but never in reality. Or maybe that's just me.

    Contemporary porn fixates on facial money shots precisely because the symbolic satisfaction of jizzing on the image which has occasioned your arousal is unavailable to phone and laptop-using consumers. It probably started with VHS. Were facials a significant feature of stag films I wonder?

    I've stepped on a banana skin and believe me, they're slippery as fuck!
