Hypothesis Confirmed

I'm closing the thread Hypothesis, i.e. making it permanently hidden to everyone but me.

I thought I might have to do this as soon as I saw people name names. There is no need for this blog to be a permanent record of grudges that will prove irrelevant in time.

It was not my intention to overtly and publicly disparage the student society in question. It was meant so that those involved would know what I was talking about and feel accordingly bad about themselves. Not to humiliate any particular person. Now that names are named it functions as something else – a kind of public shaming – which is unfair.

I was outraged about the whole thing and blogging it helped me let off aggression. Evidently the other commenters also needed to let off steam. The internet can help with that. But the thread quickly became a chance for all and sundry to loudly doubt each other's "professionalism" in a roundly unprofessional way.

I know that my post was quite immature, but the comments took it to a whole new level, despite the veneer of debating–club rationality. You did nothing to disprove what I hypothesised in the first place: that drama societies here are largely dominated by cliquiness and fevered egos.

As much as I have enjoyed this flamewar, in all its pettiness, to leave it on display would be unfair to those who were involved in the first place.

Now go have a wank and listen to Bob Marley, I certainly plan to.

Definition of my second year at university

Watching hardcore porn on my laptop with the speakers up and the door partially open.

Whilst playing Kate Bush on my iPod.

Away

Away from Internet for most of next week. Cyberspace must soldier on without me.

Past Exam Papers

are available electronically link

I searched on Google and the Warwick search for "past paper", "past exam paper", "exam paper", and multiple variations thereof, but only got the right page when I searched for "past papers" (plural). Urrgh.

Give Me a Phone

If one of my kind friends would like to give or lend me an old unused phone handset then I will be more than grateful.

Phone Dead

Just so y'all know

Quiet, isn't it?

Raaaaah

Still up. Still writing. My frontal cortex is burning with the fires of inspiration. Bring on the deadline baby.

Apt Quote

Pressures, as of deadlines or critical demand, also serve artists of every kind to release the adrenalin which acts with "inspired" precision. These are usually classified as "improvisations." ~ Maya Deren, Some Metaphors For The Creative Process

Apologies

I realise that a lot of people comment on my creative work nowadays but I seldom return the favor. I've been quite anxious about this whole Writing at Warwick game recently, and quite disillusioned with poetry per se, and I guess that is why. Anyway, if you're a Practice of Poetry student reading this, I can (if you want) read over your stuff in person before the deadline. Take it easy!
