Sexual assault, violence, police, ACAB 

CW for sexual assault and violence.

There's lots of police stories going round, so:

When I was in Year 6— in 1986, so I was eleven— a local cop came into our class every day for a week. It was a rather horrifying week, and much of it is still etched on my memory.

I think it deserves to be told.

Reminder that I have an EP out and you should tell your friends about it :)

It's a protest song called Take Hands and March, featuring Jane Cameron. There's a lot to protest about.

Bonus tracks:
- I Warn You
- Online Pizza
- Classic Striped Luxury

Links to Spotify, iTunes and so on at the link.

Politics! Protest songs!

TAKE HANDS AND MARCH is available as a single now(ish).

Please RT the hck out of this. I want to get everyone singing it. There's far too much to protest about.

How do you pronounce ".exe", as in, say, "winver.exe"?

-- a new political protest song, by me.

Charity single out on Friday.
Vocals by Jane Cameron, with Kit Thurman backing.
Thanks to Wanda Lotus, Tim Packer, Aldabra Stoddart, Kit Thurman, and Mike Thurman for being part of the video.
Like it, share it, sing it.

"You knew damn well I was a snake before you let me in"

I'm reading a book which says: an infant's first words denote its parents, representing its need for security.

*wry smile* My first word was "gone".

Quiz question: "Which of these counties has no mutual border with Somerset?"

Be warned that Somerset's border with Cornwall is not mutual... </silly>



Lord, have mercy on your children:
reinstated, though resigned;
Christ, have mercy on your children:
rescue us who fall behind;
Lord, have mercy on your children;
shine upon the lost, and find;
Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy,
for the love of humankind.

I may be the last to realise that the Criminologist in RHPS and Blofeld in Diamonds are Forever were played by the same actor, Charles Gray.

I discovered as a teenager that hope can be used as a trap: if people know you're hoping for something, they can control you by withholding it. Giving up hope was massively liberating for me.

But it became rather a habit of mind, and it hasn't always served me well since.
