The Cult of Celebrity Featured

Published in Alotuvus Written by
It’s a strange one - the way people react to fame - isn’t it? How peculiar it is, that desire to idolise, to hero-worship, to obsess about, to place upon a pedestal and otherwise just generally swoon and croon over the television stars, pop stars, movie stars, sports stars and…

DESOLATION OF THE SMUG

Published in Alotuvus Written by
“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future,” says Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings. What a pity director Peter Jackson didn’t apply this philosophy of size and potential to his adaptation of The Hobbit. The Desolation of the Smaug, the second installment of Jackson’s incredibly…

WHAT DEMOCRACY? Featured

Published in Alotuvus Written by
What is it that makes a democracy? I feel pretty sure that it can’t just simply be rolling up to a polling booth every four or five years to pick a coif in a suit. I mean there has to be more to it than that, right? Well, yes, there…

Reality Bites!

Published in Alotuvus Written by

    You can suck my cock, you cocksucker! Actually, if you don’t mind, now that I think about it, I could do with a quick blowie so… heck, you know, if that really is, like, your stated thing then, could we…? I wonder if any of you see where…

Oh Miley God

Published in Alotuvus Written by
  If you were fortunate enough to have missed witnessing the performance of Miley Cyrus at the MTV VM Awards 2013 live as it took place, you still likely won’t have escaped the spectacle later on as it did the rounds in the press and on the Internet. The tragic…

Particle of Faith Featured

Published in Alotuvus Written by
  I made the quantum leap some time ago. My perception shifted. I started to take a closer look at the quantum universe, a closer look at the substance of substance, and even though at times the terminology describing the still yet abstract mechanics of this universe dissolved into a…

The Political Picnic Party!

Published in Alotuvus Written by
  Every day, the way Barcelona's politicians treats their citizens gets worse. It turns out that now you can be fined 250E for having a children's birthday party in the park... WITHOUT A PERMIT!?! So, while bankers swim in the money they've stolen from us - yes they did -…
