Georgie Fame: Sitting In The Park, 1966

Flimsy make believe concern no more, s’il vous plait

I quickly and instinctively drew this flag in response to the 13 November 2015 Paris incidents, with the following note:

Regardless the culprit(s) and his or their affiliation(s).

I reacted in much the same way as an immediate response to last summer’s Nice incident – and then some.

But you know, we can’t go on like that every time a police officer is killed in every country we know of, much as we sympathise, seeing as how police killings very much belong to the order of the day – and for a number of reasons.

Confident that police officers gave their lives elsewhere, too, yesterday, I regret that they did, but we need to let go of this faux and effortless concern, unless we feel obliged to award the perps the attention they seek, and continue to fuel the conflict, of course.

Dimanche à la campagne

Some, however, are never happy with the outcome, so added slightly improved version (chances are you won’t even see what it is) to this gallery.

Please forgive my failure to comment on Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s continued rise to power, as it’s all been according to plan, and I honestly wouldn’t dream of expecting a different outcome.

Shot in Myrdal, Tysnes, today.

Cassius ft. Cat Power & Pharell Williams: Go Up

Needless to say the music really isn’t me. The innovative use of split-screen, though …

There’s no denying that I’m tempted to continue regarding North Korea ruler Kim Jong-un with the amusement with which I have viewed him up until recently, but owe it to myself to remind me that even Adolf Hitler, despite his evil nature, was considered quite the clown.

As is Donald J. Trump.

As is Kim Jong-un.

Now that cannot be good.
