Two things

I should not go online. I should not read the news. It always puts me in a bad mood.

Today I encounter this, on the respectable BBC website: 'Author Tom Wolfe asks whether Miami is all about sex'?

What kind of a bullshit question is that? What a vapid generalisation. Go to a nightclub, go to a stripclub, and yes, people will be into sex. Go to an old people's home or a hospital and, guess what, people have other stuff to worry about.

But Tom Wolfe, he's a real author. He does the legwork. As the article states, 'So as part of his research for the book Tom Wolfe decided to visit a strip club to see for himself what went on.'

Wow. How amazing. What commitment to the cause. I wonder what he saw? Maybe a few naked chicks? Some latina pussy? Good on you Tom, thanks for enlightening us.

The guy's a fraud anyway. Bonfire of the Vanities was a page-turner, at least, but I am Charlotte Simmons? Has anyone managed to finish it? It's an unreadable string of facile cliches. It's embarrassing. Authors should not be allowed to write when they get senile, far less get published. Let him wear his pretentious white suit. Let him visit a strip club in Miami and try to animate his cobweb-covered cock if he has to. But don't let him dribble his impotent observations over the reading public.

Tom Wolfe: pretentious senile cock

His interviewer is utterly sycophantic. In case you have food poisoning and you really have to purge, here's the link -

Secondly, the Oscars are coming up. I love the Oscars. I love the fact that all the biggest assholes are gathered in the same place at the same time. You know they must be assholes, otherwise they would have declined the invitation. There's a pleasing neatness to it.

The thing is, I don't actually hate films. Occasionally, rarely, a good one comes along. What I hate are famous people, and all the bullshit they bring with them. Imagine if actors were debarred from acting once the public started to recognise them. Films would have to star practically unknown actors, or non-actors. There would be no 'star-studded' Oscars, no mutually-masturbatory awards ceremonies, no bullshit. Films would be successful based on the quality of the acting and the writing. Beautiful actors and actresses would cease to provide the images upon which ordinary unhappy people project their miserable fantasies.

 Oscars: famous cocksuckers

There'd be a lot less money in filmmaking too. Budgets would be much smaller, and people would be drawn to the industry in order to make good films, rather than get rich.

It would be fucking awesome.
