Maybe it's time for people to finally stop blaming everyone and everything when something doesn't go as expected. No, Fox didn't "elect Trump". Sun didn't " cause Brexit". It was people, free people, exercising their freedom to vote. No matter how you feel about the result, this IS democracy.
Shit, I don't even believe in American concept of "freedom of speech", but come the fuck on. Turn out to vote next time to make the world more to your liking. Don't sit at home and pass the blame.

"Hans Rollmann similarly notes how Simon Ford, author of the first significant COUM Transmissions and Throbbing Gristle study Wreckers of Civilisation (1999), gave P-Orridge carte blanche to paint h/erself as Throbbing Gristle's preeminent instigator and artistic ringleader."
To be honest here, it seemed like Genesis was the only person willing to work with Simon on the book, and he does freely admit that it's all history as told TO him, by press, fans, and others...

I actually still never seen that movie, even though I funded it on Kickstarter...
I still remember when I saw thru Gens shit back in 2011. It was pretty shitty to lose a hero, but who needs heroes like that, anyway
Search for those with mental health problems and stay with them, take care of them (and yourself if you're one of). They suffer in the "festive" days, when everyone is with families or crazy about shopping. There's folk who don't have functional families, are often terribly psychologicaly damaged, and/or are extremely poor.
Look for neurodivergents and lend an ear, get a warm tea, have a lough, create little temporary pockets of community.
Eternally unlucky. Music, books, games, Linux, FOSS, tea, wrestling.
