Finished watching Mulholland Drive on video today.

David Lynch is not a genius. He's a complete tosser.

That's all I have to say on the matter.
On checking my previous entries for errors I noticed I did get a tad florid and alliterative in the one about the history wars and Stalinism (see last line). Hell, if I were a leftie and the academic I was referring to was one of those dreadful "neo-conservatives", I might have scored a grant from the Australia Council for it! Still, I'll leave it up there anyway for blogger posterity.
Always knew I had my finger right on the ol' zeitgeist. Am I a cyber-savvy hepcat or what!

Stuart Wackintyre asks: Who plays Stalin in our history wars?

Er, you do pal. You're the one with leftist ideology. You're the one with the numbers (ratio of fluffs to RWDBs: about 20 to 1). You're the one using taxpayers' bucks to tell the story you want to impressionable whippersnappers (Windschuttle funds himself). You're the one with the theory that "everything's political", and that the truth is not universal and immutable but "constructed". And so you're trying to construct the truth that those trying to discover it, are, er, constructing it. (Stalinist is as Stalinist does, comrade.)

Which all sounds pretty damn Stalinist to me. (Harrumph!)

(But I would say that wouldn't I, because I'm not a Stalinist. Er, which means I am, in wackster-Wackintyre's wacky ol' world.)

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are separating, apparently.

Typical celeb behaviour: They get together to get heaps more exposure. Then they break up because they got, er, too much exposure.

Shirly MacLaine has suffered a slipped disk. Wonder what caused it? Maybe it was an over-zealous butt-probe from one of her little alien pals...
