{Trailer} Hanna

New film from Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice, Atonement), starring Eric Bana and Cate ‘Looks a bit like Miss SS’ Blanchett. Hanna tells the Nikita-esque story of a 14 year old assassin, as she kills people with Jason Bourne like panache. I’m not sure that was the pitch, but that’s what the trailer hints at.

Anyway, the soundtrack contains some new Chemical Brothers, which is the cue for Tron sountrack scale excitment, in these parts and the real reason for this post. Lets just hope Hanna is better than Tron, which, apart from the soundtrack was shit.

All Out…

Strikes and boycotting are akin to war, and can be justified only on grounds analogous to those which justify war, viz., intolerable injustice and oppression. Rutherford Hayes

There’s trouble brewing. The big unions have voted unanimously today to mass national walkouts to stop or dilute the Governments planned cuts in public service. More power to them, I reckon. They tell us that we’ve had it good for years and that now we have to tighten our belts and take the bad times and the cuts to services that entails. I’m sorry but that’s shit. The majority of working people in this country haven’t seen the good times, just heard about what a good time the very wealthy were having. Now the very wealthy have gone and fucked everything up,  they expect us to pay for it. The banks, who were at the the heart of the crisis, are back to making silly money and are talking about handing out bonuses again, executives are recieving bonuses of 100% their salary, while we face a 25% cut in the public purse. That means less money for the poorest in society, less money on schools and hospitals. We can’t tax the richest, because that might harm the economy. Eh? That’s pretty much the most fucked up thing I’ve heard. Someone on the radio today said that if they went after the tax dodgers, the really rich ones with accountants that hide their money so they don’t have to pay their share, we could raise 100 billion! That would fill a pretty big hole in the countrys finances, eh? But they won’t do that, because…why can’t they do it? I don’t know.They never answer that question, so we assume that nothing can be done. The same way we assume all politicians are liars and that the rich have an inalienable right to do what the hell they like and so we do nothing about it. Honestly I’ve had enough of the bullshit.

‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!!’

Go on, lean out of your window and scream it loud…

But before you do, have a listen to these –

Familjen – Det Var Jag (Savage Skulls & Marcus Price Remix)

Next is a new remix by Run Riot of Curl and Deans ‘Bantha”. Tom himself say’s he got ‘epic’ with this one and the last three minutes are pure class and go to show the mans versatility. Every mix he does is different, always trying to move it forward. That’s why we keep posting his stuff, innit?

Driving Me Mad

I drove home from Manchester the other weekend, after about three hours sleep (a prelude to which was getting locked in a porch). A journey that should have taken a little under two hours took close to three and half and at some point I got lost in the no mans land that is the Cheshire/Shropshire border. There’s one place where you pass in to Shropshire, from Cheshire, and then five minutes later, and for no reason that makes sense, you’re welcomed back into Cheshire. Now in my fragile state this totally fucked with my mind, to such an extent that I had to stop the car and smoke a shaky ciggy, while I tried to figure out what had just happened. Had I turned round without realising? Was I driving back the way I’d just come? I could hardly stand, as lack of sleep and an ominous hangover kicked my head about. Finally I got back in the car, fumbled in my plastic supply bag and pulled out the first CD that came to hand. I’ll call that CD Salvation (though it wasn’t, it was the Chems ‘Exit Planet Dust) and this track Saving Grace (it isn’t, it’s ‘In Dust We Trust‘). About an hour later I arrived home, tried to eat something, then fell asleep. Happy Days Indeed.
