I am a weirdo, never denied it. Recently I was told that it is not normal to take photos of rubbish and derelict buildings. I never really considered it weird. Still, as Frank Zappa said, 'I didn't set out to be weird'; I just seem to perceive rubbish and dilapidated buildings as the most interesting features of modern British scenery, seeming to burst with metaphors and symbols when consumerism has created a literal hegemony throughout the nation.
Was going to write about the weird farce of Megrahi, but just feel so sickened by the whole thing. He is probably innocent, yet many of our politicians are concerned that if we release a terminally ill man, fewer Americans will come here to buy rubber plesiosaurs and hey jimmy hats. Such is the state of the world...
