The Nostalgia Of Futures Past


 

My working script, won't be correcting grammar

Part 1

There's a man down the street from me who always seems to be fiddling with something or other in his garage, a middle aged tinkerer who spends his time fixing washing machines or bikes or recently, rabbit hutches. And as he tinkers and fiddles about in his garage he always has a radio playing and it's always set on Absolute 80's by the sound of it, or one of the other radio stations that are popping up now that only play songs from certain decades, or find other ways to play old music like ''Classic Rock''.

Each time I walk past I get a good earful for the Eurythmics or OMD or Ultravox. The other day it was ''Is This Love'' by Alison Moyet, now, I'm not that old but as soon as I heard the catchy synth and the bit where Alison Moyet seems to sing in a weird downspiral sort of way instantly transported me back to another age, which I vaguely, very vaguely remember. It's like having a potent little time capsule explode in your face.

The MorgCast#3: Escaping The Grid With The Woodlander

 

In the third installment of The MorgCast I enjoy a pleasant conversation with an English chap who, quite literally, went off and built a cabin in the woods. Is going ''off grid'' and removing ourselves entirely from Globohomo feasible? can the technology which so terrifies us when we hear of terms such as ''The Great Reset'' actually be used to assist us in our struggle to lives among our own kind and in relative peace and tranquility?

Fancy A Pint Of Old Face Scanner?

 



New video getting into how jittery the incoming ''Great Reset'' is making me feel now that we can see it emerging fully into daylight...

Introducing The MorgCast

 



I've decided to create my own little podcast which I'm going to do periodically to offload some thought and opinions in a more relaxed and rambling style, without worrying about either extensive editing or scripts or, most importantly, being censored.

My episode is up on Odysee which is just me moaning for 40 minutes about the news of the week...

How Piers Morgan Shapes The Discourse

 



In my new video I explore the style and approach of a man many people seem to think actually runs this country, the ''so awful he's entertaining'' Piers Morgan, and what it is exactly that he does to the national conversation.....

Spengler, Asimov Foundation

 


In what is likely to be my final deep-dive video into the grim pessimism of Oswald Spengler I return to Isaac Asimov's ''Foundation'' series and compare and contrast differing visions of civilizational collapse.

The Long Road To A New Story

 




It seems like I've spent weeks like a rabbit caught in the bright glare of American politics and the endless rolling news-cycle which seemed to twist and turn on the hour. Throughout it all, since the elections results issue which seems like years ago now, I kept getting a story in mind of a small boy who sees his honourable father murdered and his village burned down, he's then cast out into the cruel world to wander. In other words it's the beginning of the heroes journey which runs through almost all fictional works from one degree to another.



If you've followed my work for any length time you'll know that I've long been fascinated by what George RR Martin's Game of Thrones had to say about power, at least in the series before it became crap, I never read the books. Martin, as a true postmodernist, subverted out expectations and broke the rules on how fantasy and story should be put together.

Winter Is Here

 


I've spent the last ten days or so frozen in the headlights of the American news cycle, how do you put pen to paper and begin describing and analyzing events which don't stop increasing is in intensity?

Nevertheless I went back to basics and switched on the mic and aired some thoughts on the current situation. Naturally, since we're ostensibly on the losing side of a conflict the purges are underway and so I made the video a Bitchute exclusive, which you can see here .
