  1. The Football Rant - We're back baby! (I'm forever blowing bubbles)

    Matchday! Now that's something I haven't said in a loooong time, but now the Premier League is back, and West Ham are ready to play!

    I find this weird for two reasons - first off, it's football, which has been gone for a long time, first game I've seen in several months was this week, so I'm sort of unused to it. In addition, seeing as it's behind closed doors (Due to Covid - in my opinion the season shouldn't resume at all) there won't be any fans, which also has positives and negatives. ...

  2. The life of a winemaker - sometimes things just don't go the right way...

    Well well, it's been 8 months since my last chapter on these series, so time for some updates, both good and bad news.

    Let's start with the bad news... first, I can't really explain myself how that happened, well I have some ideas but you'll see. Fact is, you know I make both red and white wine.. the white wine is simply fantastic, among the best 3 years I ever had, red wine, on the contrary, is quite bad (at the least compared to my standards); it got excessively dry very soon and ...

  3. The Football Rant - Keeping Busy Without Football

    Now then, seeing as there's no football on this won't go on to rant about football, but rather the aspects of life without it. Like many an addiction the abstinence can hit you quite hard, but then slowly gets better. As for myself, I'm keeping busy with procrastinating studying for my exam next week. Normally I would have done that by watching football, but luckily there's a plethora of other things you can do to have your mind focused on something unproductive. I mean I know I really should start ...

  4. A Commodisan Wit - Power

    I'll stop farming for skeptical commentary on my motivations and delve in a new direction this week. Initially I'd wanted to comment on education (probably the most lucid subject I'd be talking about so far), and perhaps I will; but after the past few days I've simply come up with a few thoughts on Power, and now I spoon them out to you in the hopes there is something in them that might be mildly interesting.

    To go on a tangent, one can approach the broad concept of power in a few different ...
  5. The Football Rant - Fotball is Cancelled

    For the better. Corona is upon us, and after two weeks too many of play the Premier League, Fa Cup, Euros, Tippeligaen, etc etc have finally been postponed. But too late, Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta for example is in isolation after being infected. Luckily he's about the youngest manager around, so he'll be fine. But what if someone like Roy Hodgson got it? He's 72, which means that when Sky sports pondered on barring anyone above 70 from entering a football game, he'd be in big trouble. The whole ...
