Last minute gifts for (and from) leftists? Suggestions appreciated. December 19, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

A short while to go until Christmas Eve/Day so still some time. What’s good, what’s new, what’s useful? Any help gratefully accepted.

I keep meaning to start corrupting a young relative who is getting into manga (Naruto and such):

Padraig Yeates and others contributed pieces to a useful Easter Rising centenary anthology, ‘Dublin City Council and the 1916 Rising’:

I have to put in a word for The Ulster Fry. A selection of its surrealist satire (The News As It Should Be) has just appeared in book form and is a sovereign remedy for anyone suffering from exposure to what passes for politics in Norn Iron. Details at theulsterfry.bigcartel.com

Humour – you’ve come to the wrong place for that, comrade.

We all had ours surgically removed during indoctrination.

Better trolls.

They just do not make them like they used to.

I’ve bought for somebody the electrifying story Then there was Light, edited by Cunningham & Kearney. Costs just under 15 euro. I hope someone buys a copy for me.

Tickets for the Abbey in the new year. Arthur Riordan’s ‘The Train’ and Cornmarket’s ‘Dublin by Lamplight’ among good shows I’ve seen before.

Private email, telephony and instant messaging.

Make it much harder for the state’s snoopers and the employers organisations’ private snoopers to spy on your communications.

All of which, as it happens, is free – as in beer, as well as speech.

Protonmail – now as good as Gmail and much less intrusive..

Signal – Text/media messaging with groups and encrypted phone calls.

I’m trying to track down some Phil Ochs on CD and it’s all second-hand on Amazon. Wouldn’t seem right somehow.

Which ones?

Something with Love Me, I’m a Liberal on it. The only one I have is Live Again, though I am tempted by the Rhino box set, out of pure indulgence.

Needs posting. Doesn’t get old

With the threat of loyalty oaths, the liberal sell-out can’t be too far down the line.

Champagne. John Mortimer: ‘Socialism doesn’t mean champagne for nobody; it means champagne for everybody!’
