"You can decide if this is a criticism of Flickr's homogeneity, or it could be conformist performance art. For the most part, I'm probably just objectifying toothpaste in an unhealthy way.

These images are methodically captured, lovingly hand-tagged and uploaded twice daily.

This is more boring for me than it is for you.

Most of my contacts would say that I can take better photographs than the ones you see here.

None of these images have model releases. These images are not licensed though Creative Commons for a damn good reason.

Only some of these images are captured in

Vancouver, Canada"

I havn't been posting much lately because I have *stuff* going on, some of which I may tell you about later, some of which I may tell you about now...anyway, I'm at home and I'm not feeling great and I've given up smoking and it's day 6 and okay, it's going well, but feels more like being ill than being ill does so I'm listening to...early (peter gabriel era)genesis. I mean, I havn't listened to early genesis for maybe 20 years, and yet I know every word, every nuance...what i had forgotten is how jokey they were - all peter gabriel's funny voices and cheesy wordplay in "The Battle of Epping Forest" for instance. It's comfort food for the ears, effortless, reassuring, soothing...I'm putting "Supper's Ready" on next...all together now -

State control and rock and roll...

You know how sometimes you just get an urge to hear a song you havn't thought about for years?

Hang on a minute...

"Big Brother often feels like a zoo, but celebrity contestant Pete Burns has taken it a step closer by wearing a fur coat which is said to be made from gorilla skin.

His boasts have caused outrage inside and outside the house. Biodiversity minister Jim Knight said: "Gorilla skins belong on gorillas, not on reality TV show contestants." " (BBC)

Never mind the fake gorilla skin coat - Biodiversity Minister? Minister for Biofriggingdiversity? How long have we had one of them, then? Don't remember that being announced at the last reshuffle - what are they meant to do exactly?(apart from hang on the fake fur coat tails of Our Pete)? Pshah!

First Goatse...

Originally uploaded by mrneutron.

Do you remeber the first time? the first time you saw goatse? It was the day your innocence died, and this person has captured that moment forever. The set-up is, a laptop with *that* picture is handed to unsuspecting (but willing) participants, and their reaction captured...there's a whole set of these here.

NB: the set is safe for work; the original picture is most definately not...don't google it there. Or in front of children, elderly relatives or people whose opinion of you is valued...

Less than helpful advice from the mind control people...

From the official "Current Counter Mind Control Recommendations":

"1. Contact your local congress person by mail or email and notify him or her that you are having problems with mind control, spying, remote sensing, and beam weapons attacks. Sometimes the congress person can help you by quite and not official as well as official actions"

magnetic body mods...

I can see the point of wanting to decorate your body. I can see the point in having useful modifications made, even - but I am a bit confused as to why anyone would want a 3d magnetic tattoo...still, it's a talking point I suppose...

Kaiser Chief's choral riot...

After posting the mCfly cover of "I predict a riot", I came across this rather bizarre cover - actually S. told me about a a week or so ago as it has been getting a bit of radio airplay, so better late than never, here is the choral version:

the opposite of how I feel...

...but such a stompingly fantastic feelgood mash by the only bootlegging bastard pop-idol still worth listening too, so good it even has a proper review ("Rex The Dog / The Osmonds...It's another saucy one from IDC.

Oi! Jesus! John of Gamala wants his persona back!

In a development so pointless and profound as to be worthy of a Graham Greene novel, an italian atheist is suing a local priest for "trickery" - swindling the people by promotong the belief of something false (ie by claiming that Jaysus was real).

"I started this lawsuit because I wanted to deal the final blow against the Church, the bearer of obscurantism and regression," Cascioli told Reuters..."the church constructed Christ upon the personality of John of Gamala," (he) claimed, referring to the 1st century Jew who fought against the Roman army"

The holy Grail...

When I was doing "Looking askance...", an mp3 blog, the holy grail of tracks to find was the legendary t.a.t.u./Rammstein album - russian pop-dance faux-lesbian junkie princesses in collaboration with uber-serious germanic twat-rockers. Well, I found it, eventually, and it is every bit as you might expect - breathless pop, power chords,a fucked up and twisted metalpop carcrash...here's a track:
