    Coronavirus

    I think all this just proves that our whole species is now suffering from severe cabin fever. Arguably more destructive than the bloody virus! ... And I am ebarrassingly aware that applies to myself as well. I implore everyone to have a little patience and breathe before launching in to an...

    Coronavirus

    I don't hold anything against those people lucky enough to be enjoying paid leave right now. How could I? I'd be the same if I were in that situation. So true.

    Illuminati..

    I was offered a gig a couple of weeks ago.... on the proviso that I provide medically approved evidence that my whole household is clean. Oh, and I wasn't allowed to travel there by public transport, and they would not be providing taxis. I told them to stuff off.

    Coronavirus

    Thing is, of all the freelancers I know (which is pretty much the entire UK TV industry- there aren't many of us), I could count on a single hand the number of us that are sole traders. Everyone else is a limitted company, paying themself minimum wage "plus dividends", and "employing" their...

    Coronavirus

    As a sole trader, yes. Bitterness is standard. Our gubbermunt have done everything in their power to fuck over us self employed folk, and this does not help.

    The I Feel Down Topic.

    Oh, I'm well aware that a) I am not the only one, and b) there are many in a far worse situation. Of course, when your brain has started to reject reality and substitute it's own, that doesn't neccessarily help.... :P It's a very odd headstate to be in. I'm reminded of a line from my...

    The I Feel Down Topic.

    At least I'm still sane enough to laugh at that, buddy ;)

    The I Feel Down Topic.

    Incase my recent postings haven't made it obvious, I've been falling in to a rather grimdark head-hole for the last week or so.

    A very fair point. However, Spock's logic still stands,

    Coronavirus

    The longer this goes on, the more inclined I am to agree with the theory that we should just let all the old folk die, leaving a nice cheap housing market for all us not-at-risk-people with something left to live for. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.

    The I Feel Happy Topic!

    I couldn't care less if my device is "supported". I come from the "build your own PC" generation. I want functional hardware with ONLY the software I choose to install on it. But you enjoy your new toy, of course, and do what ypu like with it. :)

    And even as my eyeballs melt in the atomic fireball, my last words will be "I told you so".

    Coronavirus

    No argument here. The only debate is who has been brainwashed?

    Coronavirus

    Of course, everyone is free to believe whatever they want. I'm not going to argue with anyone and call them wrong, no-one needs that kind of agro right now. I'm just stating my current beliefs. I found that "banned" Davik Icke video the other night. Was genuinely shocked that his views were...

    Coronavirus

    I know he's trying to steal my crown as "miserable old git", and he may be a bit sensationalist, but give the guy a break. I think both me and him feel a bit Greek right now.

    The I Feel Happy Topic!

    The trick with iPrats is to NEVER, under any circumstanses, allow the OS to update. Then they will keep going as fast as when they were new until the battery eventually dies.

    Coronavirus

    Any parks that open will find the only people who turn up are die hard geeks. Who will leave and never return when they see how oppressive their escapist hobby has become. Said parks will then close within a week, never to reopen.

    The I Feel Happy Topic!

    Don't get me wrong kiddo, I'm not having a go at you, or even your family. Just the messed up reality we find ourselves in. How's that working out for you? ;)

    The I Feel Happy Topic!

    There's something deeply wrong when a 16 year old is able to buy a new iPad at a time when most adults on the planet are unemployed.
