Check out the BBC website to see this year’s Turner Prize Hopefuls.
I was also shortlisted in error, when I left a hoover, some pans and an old set of nested tables out in the front yard for the council to collect – and a fox shat on them.
And why is it that so many journos and commentators will still insist on saying things like “controversial works” when it’s abundantly clear the words they’re actually looking for are “a load of old toss”.
I wanted to upload a picture to go with this post, but merely looking at the choices almost gave me a full-on bloody Anger-Stroke, so you can do without.
“Capitalists can buy themselves out of any crisis,
so long as they make the workers pay.”
As an aside to that – a long aside – one thing that I’ve noticed a fair amount of on newspaper and news websites is that whenever comments are posted by people (quite rightly) bemoaning the bailouts and get-out-of-jails being flung at the bastards that got us into this mess – which to the untrained eye seems little short of actually rewarding the fuckers – there are invariably a bunch of ripostes which essentially ask “Well what would you do?”.
What kind of question is that?
The point that these utter ‘tards clearly seem incapable of grasping is that those of us so violently offended by the bailouts know that we should not be in this position in the first place and should not have to take it upon ourselves to sort out what was such an inevitable shitstorm.
The ignorance and/or arrogance of these people is almost beyond belief…
Almost everyone I know has been living in a state of growing concern and outrage over recent years about unrealistic lending, irresposible lending and borrowing, and the utter unsustainability of it all.
How is this all somehow a mystery to the *experts* who got us into all this? (and their comment-board apologists?)
Reminds me, though…

(*NERD ALERT :: RISK OF DROWSINESS)
I’ve always had a problem with the “History” in a web browser. Too linear, too uninformative – and too drawn out if you happen to visit a lot of websites (if you’re as big a geek as I am…)
Thankfully Apple seem to have cottoned on to this if a report on the Apple Insider website is anything to go by.
They’ve decided that a far more visual diagram (possibly a tree diagram) against a timeline (see the outline proposition from the patent application above) would make a better model that every browser’s current standard which is no more than an unstructured and unmanaged list in purely chronological.
It’s a great idea and one that appears to be destined for implimentation in their Safari web browser (which is available for both Macs and PCs).
Given that the report is based on new patent filings (from January and April), you have to wonder how far off this may be.
But a big thumbs up from me… Great to see that the “Think Different” ethos is still alive and well in Cupertino.
