Arghghghrharg – Mr. Quinn – This is not ok.

I like paying taxes. I think it’s cool. It means every hour i work, something goes back into our country as a whole. Maybe a couple os less than productive rogues slip through the social welfare net and get more than they should but overall, i’m glad i pay taxes. In theory.

But i think this piece from the Irish Times is important to take note of. I’m happy to pay taxes for cool stuff like hospitals and roads and arts funding and social welfare. But this guy! THIS GUY! The cheek. The out and out cheek.

It’s nothing to joke about but it’s a difficult situation to get my head around. As a non violent person.


Marley the Film – Review – Peace, Love & Unity

So, much to my disappointment ‘Marley’ was not the prequel to Marley & Me but it is nevertheless worth seeing. There’s lots of dead legends and i think i have preconceived notions about who they were, often based on the very little i know about them. I used to think i was intuitive person but have slowly come to realise i like to combine massive generalisations with a vivid imagination. So learning more is always good.
