Bag Porn


Please excuse a bit of bagophilia - I bought this at Fossil* in Cardiff after months of looking for something like it. It fits a 13 inch MacBook and a small camera or a DSLR with a small lens; it struggles a bit with Werner Herzog: A Guide for the Perplexed as well as a DSLR but it is doable. Looks OK, isn't the most padded bag in the world, doesn't weight much, suits my needs and most importantly doesn't look too techno-geeky (although it looks exactly like the sort of a bag a man of my age might tote - you can only fight stereotyping for so long).

*Website appears to be down at the moment - apologies if you can't get there.

My trouble is

when I'm confronted with a request for headshots, say, I can't just stop there I have to start experimenting. I mean, you wouldn't put this on Spotlight or the IMDb now would you? Ah well, I wouldn't do it if I couldn't, if you see what I mean. Above is the ever-beautiful Claire-Monique Martin taken on Friday. Other photographs were procured.

Trump'ed on

You're probably sick of reading Niemöller's quote but here it is again - why not have another butcher's':

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."

(from The Holocaust Encyclopedia).

I've read it so many times throughout my life that when it appeared in my Facebook feed I'd roll my eyes and scroll past wondering why some unimaginative ass had bothered to post it yet again - didn't we all already know it off by bloody heart?

And now here I am, another unimaginative ass, posting it on the web and ensuring that both my readers are pissed off and bored. Only it does have a new urgency now doesn't it? I mean with The Orange One in power it becomes resonant again…
