The current twitter hoo-hah is on one side between people who (rightly) think various UK tabloid newspapers are full of hate, and (more arguably) therefore anyone who works for them is a hatemonger; on the other, people in an a dying profession (print journalism) who are scrabbling for the last few paying jobs, and inevitably the hate-filled newspapers are the ones paying.

Now my personal view is that when Stormzy complains that the Daily Mail has written a racist hit piece about him, the correct response is not "well, we've all got bills to pay" because even if that's true it the optics of saying that are awful. And while it is sometimes necessary to work for an employer you don't like because of bills (hell, I worked for W*th*rsp**ns), you can look for other jobs while you're there. I also think there's a difference between someone who actually writes the racist copy, and someone who writes (say) book reviews (assuming the book reviews are not racist too) or moderates comments on the website (assuming they delete the racist comments, which clearly the current moderators at the Daily Mail do not do).

So what do you lot think?

My old Kindle keyboard died a couple of weeks ago. Having looked into repairs and replacing it with the same model on eBay and such, it's going to be less fuss to just buy a new one1.

Looking into the current models, I hit upon a dilemma. I really, REALLY do not want a backlight, and I have been told that on both the paperwhite and the voyage you can turn the light down low, but never off completely. For me, the main attraction of an e-ink display was the lack of invasive lightiness buggering up my delicate little eyeballs. So that instantly pushed me towards the basic... BUT the basic has a lower resolution, and no 3G option, and apparently is a bit cheap-feeling and breaks easily.

I get paid on Sunday. I'll be buying a new kindle on Sunday2. Help me to decide which one?

Asda are reportedly trialing "quiet hour for autistic people" in one of their Manchester stores. I think this is a great idea, although I'm not sure the hour they've chosen (8am Saturday, which is a very busy time) is the best possible one (and yes I know there are probably practical reasons for the choice but aspie folks are so often nocturnal).

I was reading this article earlier , and it occurred to me that I'd actually quite like a gender neutral honorific too, but I'm not comfortable with Mx - I'd feel like I was treading on toes of the non-binary and genderqueer folk. I did like the idea of Rear Admiral, but there's probably some possibility of being accused of fraud, and that's very rarely an option on dropdown forms anyway. One that is often an option is Rev, though. And there are various ways of being ordained online...

The ULC explicitly has no beliefs at all, which strikes me as up my street, but it's terminology is very Christian, and that puts me off.

Spiritual Humanism does have some beliefs, which mostly seem to accord with mine, but it seems a bit hippy.

There's Pastafarianism, of course, but I've been trying to cut down on the carbs, and there is the whole question of the Stripper Factory, which despite the assurances of the Flying Spaghetti Monster on twitter, does strike me as a bit dehumanising...

A new one on me is Dudeism, which genuinely strikes me as a belief system I could really get behind. But would they throw me out for being too bothered about things and being politically active?

And of course, I'm already a Pope of Discordia, as are we all, whether we want to be or not. But Pope is not generally an option available in dropdown menus either...

So I'm leaving it up to you, oh internets:

I'm not sure what the rules are for courts, these days. I suspect they're a bit more stringent than parliament.

I am incorrect because I wish to select a different option

Of the several on the list, two were acceptable (It's a Wonderful Life and The Muppet Christmas Carol); several were schmaltzy bollocks (e.g. Miracle on 34th St) and one is the most offensive misogynist pile of bollocks that ever bore the name of Christmas Movie, even if it DOES have Alan Rickman in it (Love Actually).

So here's a PROPER Christmas movie poll.

Film one also has Alan Rickman in it, but unlike Stalking and Deceit Love Actually he doesn't break Emma Thompson's heart in it. He does dance to Ode to Joy though :) It's also got the fantastic Coke Can shot.
Film two has cousin Di in it, and has Louis Armstrong on the soundtrack.
Film three has Joan Collins being killed by a murderous Santa and Peter Cushing's heartbreaking performance as Zombie Mr Grimsdyke (those of you who haven't seen the film are laughing; those of you who have are nodding sagely with a tear in your eye)

Vote, my pretties!
