- It is possible to change almost anything in your life, eventually.
- All religion is inherently evil, and not a force for good.
- You can call me “Rev Spabbit”, as I’m an ordained member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (Sardonic, right?)
- Morals don’t, and never have, come from religion
- Learning to cook is one of the most important things you can do.
- Don’t listen to Doctors too readily, always get a second opinion.
- Cats, no society can be civilised without cats * lots (We have 6!).

- Tattoos are fun, I only have one so far.
- Eventually, a computer will do as I tell it to.

- You have to sleep, so be good and moral where possible.
- Always leave your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark.
- Live and Learn, or don’t live at all. Sometimes you just have to say “Fuck it”, dive off the deep end with that quivering feeling at the base of your spine. Done that more than once 😉

- Physical pain and pleasure really are very close to each other.
- If you want to do something, have self respect, at least Google it and try before going begging for help!
- If you’re afraid, it means you’re doing it right. Fear is the complement of courage, the fearless are invariably stupid. A man without fear cannot be courageous.
- Write shit down. I tell you three times, write shit down. Only a matter of time before you forget something important.
- Learn to say “no”, and be rude about it where necessary; the sooner you do so, and mean it, the better your life will become, and the more you’ll be able to support you and yours.
I was sucked into the YouTube Vortex the other day, and stumbled upon this gem from Wintergatan… This is simply amazing, and in this day and age where the fine level craftsman is something of a myth, even more amazing. Apparently this machine uses somewhere in the region of 2000 marbles (Although they look like steel ball-bearings to me), and is entirely hand cranked… What kind of madmen made this – Wintergatan madmen!
After watching this, I went further and watched some more Wintergatan… Whilst they looks like hippies given the IKEA make-over, they make some shit hot instrumental music – highly recommended 🙂
Fuck the pyramids, fuck all the other wonders of the world. “Let’s get fucked” has basically eclipsed all else of material value in the world, in history. In case you’re wondering… right now, I’m fucked… fucked up on Captain Morgan White Rum; and you know, this is fun – it’s short-term fun, after all the buzz will only last so long, and I’ll be unfucked, sober, sooner or later. But getting fucked up is repeatable, almost infinitely, well, whilst we’re not too old or otherwise-fucked.
I’m wondering what other higher purpose of Human-Kind there actually is… I mean, there is propagation of the species, love, honour, all that stuff – but after that, what is there? Getting fucked up, off yer face, out of it. That’s it, the pinnacle of human fucking achievement. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad thing, it’s just an acknowledgement of the state of affairs.
So let’s raise a glass / a spliff / fucking whatever, and let’s get fucked, and celebrate the pinnacle of human achievement. 🙂
This is the first in a series of movies reviews here @Spabbit. I’ll be going through my favourite movie collection over the next few weeks. At the top of the list, alphabetically, is A Dog’s Breakfast.
It was been written, directed by and stars David Hewlett. I first encountered David Hewlett in Stargate SG1, and later on Stargate Atlantis – he played the very annoying Rodney McKay, who’s principle occupation was being a genius level dork amongst the stars. Talking of Stargate – all the actors in this movie have been in one or another of the various Stargate incarnations.
The movie is simple, quirky and contains some classic scenes, a truly amazing, awesome creation. The comedy varies from simple jokes to classic slapstick – Hewlett makes it all come together with the same ease in which he projects into every role he’s thrown in to. One of the interesting things, is that his sister in the movie, Marilyn, is played by his real-life sister, Kate Hewlett – this adds a unique chemistry to the whole thing which can’t be beaten…
David’s character, Patrick, is uniquely pure Hewlett-grade awkward-dork-genius, and really has to seen been to be believed. Paul McGillion also shines here, without giving away too much of the plot, he plays two parts, and the second is very much unexpected 🙂
This movie will have you rolling around, gasping for breath – and you’ll always want more – go watch this today, you won’t be disappointed.
