    Music videos that depend entirely on a pretty face

    Here's one. Nothing happening except Freya Ridings's loveliness. Too hypnotised to even know if I like the song Tempted to rip this off for the next Stoat video - could come out as unsettling or funny, either of which would be OK with me

    The price of trains

    I wanted to go to Despacio in London in August. Boat+train costs EUR120-odd, and I'd need to stay 2 nights. Flight costs EUR40 and I'd only need to stay one (so half the accommodation cost) (sighs) I guess I won't be going so. How the fuck are flights so cheap compared to ground transport?

    How should I feel about Borgore?

    I heard this song for the first time yesterday And I FUCKING LOVE IT ... but listening to the lyrics this guy Borgore seems like a full-bore misogynistic asshole, or at least using mysoginistic asshole-ism as a way to sell his music. But then I go and look him up and his audience seems to...
