    The K is a Crowley thing - he chucked it in and wove a whole load of symbolism on top which I'm too tired to explain rn. I'm ill sorry!

    Exiting Reality

    Hung out with John a few times. Lovely guy. Don't know what he's up to now but I'm currently reading his book about the Zombie, which is amazing. I listened to an interview he did on Hermitix earlier this year a few weeks ago but didn't really rate it, didn't seem to say much new to me. I'm...

    Is Russia the future of Britain?

    Man, your initial post was 2 very short lines so you didn't really lay out any emphasis, as far as I can see. Your post came over like the bog standard carping that you see from the Left whenever any critique of the "wrong" nation stations occurs (i.e. those opposed to the West) - whataboutery...

    Is Russia the future of Britain?

    And somehow, from that mess, emerged democracy, universal suffrage, and frameworks of Human Rights. Either these things are worth defending or they're not, going forwards into the 21st Century.

    Is Russia the future of Britain?

    I mean this is what I think people don't get when talking about Russia. How deep and embedded this stuff is Always amazed when I see say Merkel et al talking about Russia and Putin as if they are vaguely normal states rather than putting on a Hazmat suit before entering the same room. The...

    Is Russia the future of Britain?

    To follow Rudewhy's post, probably one of the most prominent events in Russia in recent months has been the poisoning of Alexi Navalny. You could add to this the falling out of windows of several medical staff who'd dared to criticise the coronavirus response of the state, as well as the...

    They've been profiling a lot of black artists since George Floyd/BLM as well. Mourning (A) Blkstar (terrible name) were on the cover, then the Arkestra. I appreciate the effort, nice to find out about those I don't know about.

    I dunno about that... I think music has kinda moved towards them lately. The interest in drone/field recordings/electronica/improv, in the absence of any other bigger cultural trends makes it seem pretty relevant tbh. I like their radio show on Resonance as I keep saying.

    Keir Starmer

    That is interesting. Beyond the wider context of electability, I guess a lot of my opinions are shaped in reaction to the old leadership's dreadful hypocrisy on FP.
