Vexen Crabtree 2015


I am online in a Starbucks in London... downloading hundreds of emails and trying to get some stuff done...

I am in London for the next two and a half months, until the end of July. Woo hoo! But, I will be working hard and do not know in advance what weekends I will be free.

Nonetheless, I had a great quiet evening out with mattlazycat yesterday, and will endeavour to catch up with as many people as I can!

Anyway... in a months time, I will endeavour to post on this journal a very awesome, shocking and surprising photo of me in London at work... problem is, I haven't taken it yet. You'll see!

Ancestral Sins and Historical Evils

"National Apologies for Ancestral Sins and Historical Evils" by Vexen Crabtree (2007)

Should we return annexed land to its original owners? Should we send immigrants home? And other questions relating to things done by previous generations... should we apologize for those things, on their behalf?

I enjoyed writing this page... even got in a bit about the Adam and Eve story from Christian mythology.

VNV Nation: Judgement and stuff

VNV Nations' new CD is his best yet, it is truly awesomely brilliant, exciting and all those types of things. It's still futurepop rather than the EBM that VNV started out as. It's a dark, brooding and yet pounding masterpiece.

Likewise, Assemblage 23's new album is also pretty good.

(Er, I've been to Resurrection Records... it's been ages since I got some CDs)

Also I picked up a Icon of Coil remix CD, which is on-average better than their (sometimes badly judged) albums.

I've also picked up (but not listened to) a Combichrist CD, and (more riskily) an Ayria CD because I liked "Horrible Dream" that I have on a compilation.

I've finished reading Prof. Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene (1976)... and well, it was so amazingly good that I'm going to have to write out my thoughts when calm, relaxed and objective. He is my greatest hero.
