Moholy-Nagy and modern design, or, my girlfriend has got lovely tits

  Mon 16th July 2012
On London Euston's bleak concourse, a moment of checking myself to see how much I would really enjoy seeing her, which was erased by the delight in doing so, and desire, feeling her pressed against me. We went to the Doric Arch. more »

Everybody wants the rainbow

  Sun 15th July 2012
I am in Kirsty's house, looking out onto a vista ten feet deep, of a hoovered and litter-free red shagpile carpet. A pile of barely acceptably ironed shirts and trousers is on the settee. "M&S Girls No-Iron", it said on the labels, despite being lined with a pattern like a geodesic zone. more »

Where do you take a new girlfriend for a classy dinner? We had butter pie, peas and gravy in the little pie shop on Penny Street run by chatty overweight women in tabards. more »

Maiden Voyage

  Tue 10th July 2012
I had arranged to meet Trina today. The right depth in; "both of us knowing exactly what it meant", as the Overnight Editor put it so beautifully, (as he always did), at a similar stage. On the bus, a man a few seats in front of me was flicking endle… more »

M / 56 / Bristol, "the most beautiful, interesting and distinguished city in England" -- John Betjeman [1961, source eludes me].

"Looby is a left-wing intellectual who is obsessed with a) women's clothes and b) tits." -- Joy of Bex.

WLTM literate woman, 40-65. Must have nice tits, a PhD, and an mdma factory in the shed, although the first on its own will do in the short term.

La vie poetique has its pleasures, and readings--ideally a long way from home--are one of them. I can pretend to be George Szirtes.

John Whale

One good thing about being a Marxist is that you don't have to pretend to like work.
Terry Eagleton, What Is A Novel?, Lancaster University, 1 Feb 2010

The working man is a fucking loser.
