Some guy with orange hair. Sitting in a white room. Ignoring his partner. Obsessively watching 12 TVs at once.

Remind you of anyone?

From that film Bowie did about the alien space man who fell over.


And also, "That sense of despair when you realize you're agreeing with Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, AND TONY BLAIR this year:"

Why did it have to be Tony Blair that called out Corbyn on Brexit? And of course, also, why did he have to say it now, just before the Stoke by-election instead of 3 months ago.

"LOL / It's a Prank, Bro" is now an assassination technique.

Tell me again: Which SciFi novel are we living in?

Mysterious international assassin wears a "LOL" shirt--that's basically 2017 in a nutshell

Here's a good one.

So it's not "Which SciFi Novel are you living in?". It's, "Which fictional character from a novel has inserted itself into your thoughts".

The sounds of my life so far in 5 year moments.

1961 Chubby Checker - Let's Twist Again. I was a mean twister at 5. And won a prize for it.

1966 Hendrix - Hey Joe. Beatles - Revolver. The moment music changed and would never be the same again. Watching Top of the Pops with your mum and wondering what just happened.

1971 Hawkwind - In Search of Space. I had no idea what this was about but I remember the joss sticks and candles. Genesis - Nursery Cryme. Saw them live. At School. On the album launch tour.

1976 Frank Zappa - Zoot Allures. He stopped being silly for a moment, shut up and just played his guitar. Live at Hammersmith Odeon

1981 BowWowWow - See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang Yeah, City All Over! Go Ape Crazy! Music was so decadent that year. But this and Adam and the Ants was a breath of fresh air. And then: Soft Cell - Tainted Love

1986 Big Audio Dynamite - No. 10, Upping St. Samples of old Clint Eastwood movies

1991 Massive Attack - Blue Lines. Soundtrack to the whole decade, pretty much.

1996 Underworld - Second Toughest in the Infants. Goa Trance was also happening but I kind of missed that. Mars! Needs! Women!

2001 Atmosphere - Lucy Ford. Blunted rap as a soundtrack to ExtremeSports skateboard videos.

2006 Burial - Burial. Pinch - Qawwali. The year that Dubstep surfaced into the mainstream.

2011 Holy Other - Touch. * So * much club/bass music. WitchHouse and TriangleCore was a diverting backwater. And then there was getting emotional to James Blake - Wilhelms Scream

2016 Aries - You Make Me Wanna. The exact moment when LoFi house jumped the shark. I 'kin love this shit. Is this a golden age or what?

To my American friends. If the Madness of King Donald III gets too much and you feel you're being taxed without representation, you're very welcome to rejoin the colonies as we leave Europe.
