Fifty years of time travel

Published in Alotuvus Written by
  On Nov. 23, 1963, the first ever episode of the long-running British science-fiction series Doctor Who was aired on the BBC. Nov. 23 this year, 2013, sees the show celebrate its fiftieth anniversary with a specially made episode. Until now there have been 11 Doctors, with the actor set…

The Cult of Celebrity

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…

“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 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
    How much more reality TV can we take? Leaving aside for the moment the fact that the ‘reality’ of most of these shows is dubious at the best of times – and I’m going to let talent shows off in that regard because generally it’s the perception of…

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

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 -…
