Equal Opportunity Comedy

Following on from the blue-faced Tories, via, Paulie, whom I thank for calling me a thogger—he’s one too—I read this amusing post about red-faced Tories from the enigmatic but entertaining “pete“.

Yet Another Test Post

If this entry also appears at Bloggers4Labour then thanks to Andrew Regan, the evil genius behind that site, and to the cunning Andrew Skudder for restoring PooterGeek’s feed to the collective. UPDATE: I’m boring, I’m beige, I’m back, and my pants are as tight as a Scissor Sisters track.

Needle

When I used to work for the Medical Research Council, I did my best not to bore people with it on this site. I took up the name “PooterGeek”—ironically, the suggestion of a summer student—so that when people searched for my name on the Web they would find biomedical publications to download rather than movie […]

A Weekend Trip To The Recycling Centre

I’m busy so, instead of writing my own stuff, I’ll just point at the efforts of some other bloggers. This at Fisking Central is a point worth making over and over again: Utopia doesn’t refer to a better world; it’s used to describe a perfect world. Belief in human perfectability—and its accompanying rejection of all […]

Euston Manifesto Blog

It hasn’t been publicised, but there’s a new Euston Manifesto blog running alongside the existing site. The blog collects items of interest to signatories and supporters of the manifesto and invites civil debate about them. So far posts have been contributed by Jeremy Brown of Who Knew?, Alan Johnson of Labour Friends of Iraq, Jeff […]

Possibly The Sweariest Blogpost I’m Ever Going To Link To

Over at my other blog I’ve been writing about touching up women, and summarising what I learned about photographing weddings from watching Armageddon. The latter has proved to be popular with outsiders so I am linking it from here for those who aren’t regulars at The Wedding Photography Blog. I don’t mention it there and […]

Does What It Says On The Tin

If you have ever spent any amount of time in conversation with cokeheads in London then you will be able to testify to the authenticity of “Diary of a London Cokehead“.

Call That A ‘Lanche?

Having checked my logs I can say with some confidence that A-list blogger Andrew Sullivan got more hits from my linking to him than I did from his linking to C-lister PooterGeek. Not that Andrew himself linked to me; it was stand-in Clive “not the music mogul” Davis.

Sullivalanche

Hello Sullivanians and welcome to PooterGeek. There’s more of my stuff at The Wedding Photography Blog. If you’re getting married in 2007 or you just want a photographer then contact me via my professional site, Sepial.com. Yes, I will travel to your country club in Westchester County to record your New York Times-featured, Cecil B DeMille-scale engagement […]

Today Britain. Tomorrow The World!

Despite my slack posting there, in the few months since I started it The Wedding Photography Blog has gone to number two hit on Yahoo UK for the search terms “wedding photography“. This is amazing even to me. If you linked to it then thank you. I must extend special gratitude to the anti-Euston Manifesto obsessive […]

Disappointed

In the hope of hoovering up enough batshit crazy nonsense for a quick and easy blog post I visited the BBC “Have Your Say” page that asked “What is your reaction to Lord Stevens’ inquiry in to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales?”. To my amazement most of the answers from members of the […]

Lying Neocons

In September 2005 Harry of the Place blogged “for the last time”. Since then he’s contributed tens more posts to the site that bears his nom de guerre, thirteen of them in the month following his “retirement”. On 1 December 2006 Oliver Kamm wished his readers a happy new year and announced the closure of […]

Bag Lady

Having moved out of her previous residence, Grammar Puss is blogging again at last, hanging around on street-corners, and scrounging bandwidth from passers-by.

Free As A Bird

You’ve probably seen this one already because it was on Metafilter and has been going around for a couple of days. I found it via Mick Hartley. If you haven’t yet done so, hop to the Surrey Comet Website, where readers have been invited to comment on a story about how town centre managers have […]

HOW CAN PPL BE SO CRUEL TO BLOGGERS? :-(

Justin of Chicken Yoghurt is wearyingly obtuse in the comments at Never Trust A Hippy. In response to this from Paulie: The prize for the most telling response to the Tim Toulmin /Alistair Campbell dialogue and call for a ‘blogger code of conduct’ surely goes to Chicken Yoghurt. His response is that the blogosphere…. “…hasn’t […]

Test Post

This post is intended to test the effect of Damian’s upgrades on the Bloggers4Labour aggregator. You may comment on it only if you manage to work a Lennon and McCartney lyric into your text somewhere.

Beige Girl In The Ring

Following on from my previous post, the entertaining flickr pages of a posh Asian-Italian woman called Robyn are at the end of this link, including her own pics of Brighton from her recent visit with her man. (They seem to be public so I don’t think this makes us voyeurs. She’s part of the Bobbie […]

AOR Rewrites

Squander Two is a clever fella and his impatience with irrationality is (almost) always welcome in my comments boxes. He is also a new father who has endured rather more worry than most recently. I hope his wife recovers completely and quickly. He probably came up with this brilliant revision of Alanis Morissette’s Ironic during […]

Nutkin

Rob “not the stand-up” Newman’s back with highlights of the grave debate on what my American friends insist on calling “squirls” and, inevitably, with another loon in his inbox.

Registering Complaints

I hadn’t noticed this until I read Tom Hamilton’s post at Let’s Be Sensible, but the Devil’s Kitchen calls the Mr Eugenides essay that I blogged about “one of the finest posts ever written“. Does Eton College do refunds? Also, having read the latest post at Never Trust A Hippy, I must revise my slur […]

Pot-Bellied Man In Speedos Points At Naked Middle-Aged Woman And Laughs

Blogger Mr Eugenides displays courage to rival that of Leonidas (the chocolatier rather than the king of the Spartans) as he takes on intellectual giantess Polly Toynbee in the argument over government surveillance and points up classic fallacy after classic fallacy in her defence of ID cards and CCTV cameras. What case does Mr E […]

Selling Out: Your Views Sought

I’m not going to share my thoughts on this one with you lot yet, except to link to this post on Black Triangle, but I’d like to read yours about these following plans of mine. I intend to put advertisements on the Wedding Photography Blog and on another potentially money-making blog that I have started […]

Weirdy

Over the past week or so I have grown a beard. I’m going to chop it off today, but it’s not bad as beards go: short, thick, dark, and slightly curly, with flecks of grey in it. It’s grown while I’ve been locked indoors doing Web design on my Sepial site. The design isn’t even […]

The Motherland

Brian Micklethwait has a post up about Sierra Leone. It’s opposite of the sort of thing many of journalists would write about the place, being politically incorrect, interesting to the casual reader, and crude but accurate—as opposed to sensitive but misleading. It’s the sort of summary of the place you might get from a mate […]

In Our Defence

Shuggy is complaining about Norm’s and my spelling of “defence” as “defense” and Christopher Hitchens’ spelling of “labour” as “labor”: Lenin does it. So does Pootergeek. As does Norm. Politically different, yet the same problem; they all spell ‘defence’ with an ‘s’. Which is an Americanism. I’m happy for the Yanks to do this but […]

Personal Messages

A warm “welcome back” to Amsa, Gravesend’s best-looking resident. Paulie, your blog ate my Collymore comment. I would love to visit Portsmouth, but I’ll have to be invited first. Trevor in Sheffield, a man in a long coat will bring you good news of a distant relative.

My mention of Stratford-upon-Avon reminds me of wongaBlog, which I meant to add to the blogroll weeks back. It’s there now and is currently featuring pictures of the Mop Fair.

Surfing The Wave

Jackie‘ll like this. And, just as rocket science and brain surgery are not necessarily the most intellectually demanding specialisms of physics and medicine respectively, Tim also points out that organising a piss-up in a brewery is a non-trivial exercise.
