Month: February 2020

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 102 – Bored, Bored, Bored!

“One of the nice thing about Time, Crowley always said, was that it was steadily taking him further away from the fourteenth century, the most bloody boring hundred years on God’s, excuse his French, Earth”
— Terry Pratchett (Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch)

End of February – dull, grey, possibly snowy.
It’s been raining forever!
The whole month is like one long wet Sunday afternoon
in a caravan
in the middle of a field
in rural Wales!

Don’t get me wrong – I love Wales. I also love caravans.
But even the chip shops close on Sundays in Wales…..

But surely boredom is an interesting subject all of its own….?

Well there’s only one way to find out.
Join your host, Xmorpheus
(because names with Xs are cool and interesting)
for a very very boring show indeed.

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 101 – I Protest!

“It’s simply that in every crowd there’s a twerp. All any twerp needs to do is protest loud and long, and he or she will get attention from other twerps who’ll go along for the ride–after all,
if such people didn’t exist, the Ricki Lake Show wouldn’t have an audience.”
— Terry Pratchett

Inspired by TV’s Clangers Expert, Tim Worthington, Cabinet delves into the murky and somewhat insipid waters of the Protest song!

Just Say No to Drugs……
Rap Against Rape…..
Don’t Take Doctor Who off the Air…..

Yes, we have it all – the good, the bad and the just plain weird

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 100 -St. Valentine’s Massacre III – Revenge of the inability to come up with a witty sequel name

Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable.
It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.
You build up all these defences. You build up this whole armour, for years, so nothing can hurt you,
then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…
You give them a piece of you. They don’t ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore.
Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness,
so a simple phrase like “maybe we should just be friends” or “how very perceptive” turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.
It hurts.
Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind.
It’s a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.
Nothing should be able to do that.
Especially not love.
I hate love.”―
Neil GaimanThe Kindly Ones
