Viva Diversity! »

Creative dance tour-de-force Diversity inched out borderline sociopath Susan Boyle last night to snatch the Britain’s Got Talent crown from under the YouTube phenomenon’s florid nose & thunderous brow.

J. G. Ballard: 1930 – 2009

I am actually a huge fan of J. G. Ballard. For me, his work was the perfectly polarised companion to the Star Trek adventures of the early 80’s, novelisations around which I read widely, expanding my sci-fi universe...
