Extract from the journal of Gnomepants –

“Liverpool, July 2006. Too hot to type. Too muggy for brain to function correctly. Have been holed up in this office for some hours now. Glorious sunshine rages outside. The men are praying for their souls. The heat is too much for some and one or two have fallen foul of the intolerable and unbearable heat. Oates has just left the office stating “I am just going outside and may be some time”. We tried with every ounce of our remaining strength to convince him to stay but he went out into that hellish heat. I fear for his life. Some of the younger men are starting to strip off, the heat causing madness within their already heat exhausted mind. We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course and the end cannot be far. It seems a pity but I do not think I can write more. For God’s sake, look after our people.”

Once, long ago, I wrote frequently on Livejournal. I then moved to Blogspot, where I discovered that blogging requires an audience. So I moved back to LJ. Then over to Dreamwidth, back to LJ, up the road of self hosting with Muckybadger before giving up entirely and moving over to Wordpress. It was at that moment I decided I would spread my compostual nonsense simultaneously across the blogosphere like some rancid margarine. And so here I am. I am a badger. But then I'm not really a badger. I am a human. With badger like tendencies. I am a writer, a film producer and a social commentator. I am available for Breakfast TV shows, documentaries and chats in the pub with journalists where I am more than qualified enough to talk confidently about absolute shite and bollocks.
