    Pulp, I Spy
    (Different Class, 1995)

    It may look to the untrained eye I’m sitting on my arse all day and I’m biding my time until I take you all on, my Lords and Ladies. It’s just like in the old days — I used to compose my own critical notices in my head, “the crowd gasps at Cocker’s masterful control of the bicycle, skilfully avoiding the dog turd next to the corner shop,” imagining a blue plaque above the place I first ever felt a girl’s breasts, the whole ‘nana. You’ve got to wait for the best.

    You see, you should take me seriously, very seriously indeed, cause I’ve been sleeping with your wife for the past sixteen weeks, smoking your cigarettes, drinking your brandy, messing up the bed you chose together. And in all that time I just wanted you to come home unexpectedly one afternoon and catch us at it in the front room. You see, I spy for a living and I specialise in revenge, on taking the things I know will cause you pain. I can’t help it, I was dragged up. My favourite park’s a car park, grass is something you smoke, birds is something you shag. Take your year in Provence and shove it up your arse.

    Buy Different Class. Pulp, previously. More Jarvis.

Another commission from Emerald City Comicon: Sherlock Holmes contemplates Irene Adler.
This was sufficiently fun that it makes me wonder if I should adapt a Holmes story one of these days. A Scandal in Bohemia is pretty irresistible (although it’s a long one!).

  7. Rand Paul’s 12-hour filibuster is unlikely to go down as much more than a footnote in the sordid history of the decline-and-fall years of our busted democracy, but it reveals quite a lot about the false promise of The Republic as a bulwark against an empire. There is but one position on which all sides (read: both sides) agree: that the opposition shalt not interfere with the warmaking powers of their side when it’s in power. All the gaudy Democratic moralizing of the Bush years evaporates like a Helmand wedding party under Obama’s wrathful eye. A rough survey of twitter, the blogs, and the mainstream press found most American liberals hurling vengeful non sequiturs at the filibuster or else making fun of Paul for the hilarious fact that he had to hold his bladder for hours in order to make the point that the President has now arrogated to himself not only the right to kill anyone else in the world with no process or trial, but also to kill his own citizens. In purely moral terms that may be a meaningless procedural distinction, but we live in a world of nations, and in that sense it really does represent a leap even further beyond the pale.
