Easter = Bullshit

In reference to: This Telegraph Article where the Christians are accusing people of erasing Easter...

We all know, Easter is bullshit, cultural appropriation and rape in the name of Christian religions. The cultural rape, pain, and appropriation driven as a whole by the historic advances of insidious religions, yet they have the bold faced cheek to claim discrimination and minimisation of their pillaged appropriations, the results of cultural rape which they themselves have conducted in the past... Don't live in a glass house and throw bricks, you hypocritical bastard-scum-vermin! … Continue Reading

When the fuck did I become an old man: the encore – le bis!

So here we are five years from the 1st "When the fuck did I become an old man?" article... We're already at part two, La deuxième manche!. It only seemed like yesterday @Spabbit was born, now it's almost 10, a fucking decade in the making, and I'm a decade older! (Yes, I tenaciously made it this far lol). So here it is: When the fuck did I become an even older old man!

Video Game Retirement: I'm in the cohort of Gen-X aging not gracefully, and still playing video games - Why Mario, that's a fine walking-stick you have there! … Continue Reading

The Sound and the Fury: Surviving in a World That Won’t Stop Chewing

Misophonia, or 'Selective Sound Sensitivity Syndrome', is one tough motherfcker of a condition. It's not just about hating sounds; it's about certain noises triggering a storm of emotions, ranging from irritation to outright rage. It's like those sounds are picking a fight with your brain, and your brain is like, "I've had it with these motherfucking sounds in this motherfucking cafe!"

The science behind this is as complex as a plot in a Tarantino flick. It's not the ears; it's the brain that's getting all fucked up. Parts of the brain that deal with emotions and sensory input are going haywire, making everyday sounds like chewing, slurping, or even whistling feel like a personal attack. … Continue Reading

High Functioning Anxiety: The best jape from the fetid depths of Loki’s Mirth-Bank

This is the third article on High Function Anxiety I've authored, and as with the others it's been penned after an incident / flare-up whilst the experience is still fresh. It's almost like watching a dream, then recording what happened afterwards, so here goes:

Hollywood has, I would imagine several hundred times over history, made productions around super-powers gone bad – it's in the start of almost every super-hero movie or program that the hero discovers a power by accident, however it's never smooth sailing – there is always some degree of fuckery surrounding the newly discovered power. The fuckery in question generally has a light and a dark side, so the hero might be able to make a drink insta-chill in their hands, or might accidently freeze a loved one to death – either way the super power is doing it's own thing and the hero has no control over it – this is the phase High Functioning Anxiety is permanently stuck in.… Continue Reading

Spabbit’s top words & phrases to be deleted! #Rant

Fair play - This one sucks arse, it's the ultimate low-brow, knuckle-dragging version of supposedly showing respect for achievement. Take your language beyond the secondary school play ground level!

Nom - Any adult using this word (and any other fucking baby-talk) outside of cooing to a baby needs to be fucking shot. Eating noises are beyond redemption, and using a word to mean such? YouFuckingWhat!… Continue Reading

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.



Some of you will recognise that quote from the movie Blade Runner - it's one of the hall mark moments in movie history, something which will never be captured again... which is the point of this article.

At the time of writing, I'm in my late 40s - this means that a metric fuckton of change has occurred in my life. Watching a Bill Bailey recording last night - Bill reminded me of some of the things now largely items of the past - if you're in the right age group for this article, and are scratching your head, then you're probably not British, just chill - some of these are sooo British, they all have a cup of tea and a cucumber sarnie at 4pm on the dot. … Continue Reading

BMW Mini: Just don’t.


Just fucking don't. These cars are a massive mistake which shouldn't be repeated. Yes this is a rant. Yes, I'm bitter.

I've just exited, stage-Vauxhall, from a toxic 2.5 year relationship with a 2012 Mini Countryman Cooper-S. Don't get me wrong, it was a sexy minx of a turbo-charged car, great looks, fantastic performance when not driving like a pussy... but as with most sexy minx profiled objects in life, it came with a giant slice of super-expensive-psycho-pie.

I have had friends attest to the reliability of BMW based cars, but for me, fucking never again. Beautiful to drive, but will surely turn around and stab you in the heart, just because. So fucking expensive to maintain, and things will go wrong... high pressure fuel pump, coils, temperature sensors, door seals, sils, head-gasket... you fucking name it, that car fucked me with it. Great looking cars too... most of them are an 8+... but seriously, unless you have reached the socio-economic status where you have a large collection of fucks which you deal out with abandon, just don't. … Continue Reading

Going secure with Bitnami, Apache2, and WordPress (Linux)

It’s very confusing! In fact I’d describe the current state of documentation and articles around this as a right clusterfuck.

Lies, it’s all lies. The articles out there make it out to be hyper-complex – it ain’t, it’s VERY simple, but there are zero articles which point out this path – the articles (which shall not be named), all point in the direction of the LEGO stack (Let’s Encrypt), which whilst free is a pain in the arse to understand without even trying to comprehend actually doing it.…

@Spabbit Blog on the #BRExit result

imageI was scrolling through the blog, and came across the below article from 2016… I think that now, here years later, it has even more meaning. Blip in the timeline, or chaos on a stick with ketchup? We’ll be finding out soon – watch this country shaped space 😉

Today, the UK has voted to leave the EU, the UK Prime Minister, David Cameron (A public-schoolboy upper society product who’s never lived in real-life) has resigned.…

Reasons why I’m not a c*nt.

This is going to be a short article.

Erm… maybe.

Yeeeee nah, I’m a c*nt really.

So if you don’t like professional industrial level swearing which would put a roughneck to shame, or if you’re a snowflake, then scroll on by and have a nice life, otherwise read on.…

How to remove the metadata title from MKV files

mkvYou may have come across the need to remove the metadata, or extended title information from an mkv file downloaded from the internet.

Not all files are equal – in the case of regular files, for example .jpg and .mp4 files, you can simply right click in Windows, select Properties, and happily click away at the Details Tab, then “Remove Properties and Personal Information” – provided you have the right permissions, it’ll all work fine.…
