What to do in a world without Cowell




So, X Factor is back.

And it seems that some are interested in what I might say about it. So, in an unusual gesture of acquiescence, I shall do so this year, as best I can.

I only caught a moment or two of the first show, but have checked YouTube since. It seems that young Janet Devlin of Tyrone, Northern Ireland, has stirred a few waves.  She reminds me of Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter films. Very cute and endearing indeed. And some interesting quirks in her voice. Already a favourite for final selection it would seem. Ellie Goulding comparisons aside (and they were definitely aside for the judges, for some reason - have they never heard of Ellie Goulding?), she seems genuinely innocent. We can only hope the fame machine doesn't chew up her soul too soon (she's probably going to be this year's ...

New Mung Album







So, as you may have noticed, there's a new Mungolian Jet Set album emerging from the writhing vagina of creativity that is Mung HQ in the coming weeks. And you may even have listened to some of the samples HERE.

But I honestly can't say I give a shit about it.

I'm being dragged to the Punkt Festival in a few weeks, while right now I'm left for long hours without any sentient contact outside of the internet (and that can be questionable in terms of sentience)  - oh yeah - and generally deprived of kebabs and strong liquor.

So, in short, I would like you to utterly IGNORE this post, and all future posts I make. No more comments, no more messages, no more emails to me. I am taking this opportunity to turn my involuntary exile to a world of shit and ...

My Own Personal Zombie




ZOMBIE!So I've been Twittering like a bitch lately.

Someone (Neil Gaiman or William Gibson - forget who) asked why zombies had become so common recently in film & fiction.

My answer was this:

Zombies represent an innate fear of overpopulation.

Which of course is a Twitter answer.

To E X P A N D ...

The zombie represents mindless servitude when singular, in most cases. But zombie plagues represent a fear that the world is incapable of sustaining itself, specifically the human population. The numbers grow daily, the resources deplete. What recourse but cannibalism.

More interestingly, and perhaps something that Charlie Brooker put his finger on with Dead Set (which I wasn't particularly enchanted by) is the fear that the world is slowly being filled with mindless hordes, all with only one thing on their minds: to consume.

Dawn of The Dead ...

Do ya get the Punkt? Huh? Well ... Do ya???




Sir Dhahii has been bedwetting again. Because of the Punkt Festival.

That's a lie (I hope).

But he has been somewhat ... distorted lately. And he has been particularly entrapped in a mysterious state of near-orgasm since the announcement of the Punkt Program.

David Sylvian, John Paul Jones, lashings of Norwegian goodness in the form of Arve Henriksen (one-time MC and dance choreographer for the Mungs at a previous Punkt festival), Nils Petter Molvær ("Peace Be Upon Him") and numerous others from across the globe.

All very exciting for our resident webhead and occasional purveyor of dubious "back-up lyricism" for the Mungs.

I remain, more or less, unstirred. I have been spending time with my cat of late (now devoid of ears), and listening to microtonal drone music from the planet Tyvna'an. This music is very hard to come by, and requires sophisticated radio equipment ...

"She's A Star" - Lyrics for your usage




Greetings ...

In my continued efforts to distract myself from a world intent on finding evils where few exist/blaming others for things that have nothing to do with them, I give to you yet more wordage for your usage.

Same as before, use them as you will, but send me an mp3 copy of the result, and money may be sent if you really want to (this only applies if you manage to make any of the back of it, of course). Don't forget to give credit where it's due: Credit: The Homunculus Of Mung

Here we have a ditty entitled:

SHE'S A STAR

The fabulous fawn and dote
Their new invention swans in
All diamante and pearls
Like an electric pumping johnson
A wagon they'll jump on
They'll be gagging to dump on
In six months flat or less
It's time to bring out ...
