      Harry – I’m wondering why you use a picture of a young Joseph Stalin as your avatar?

        Well… while I personally don’t go for the simplistic view of right vs left there are quite a few commenters here that do.
        The same commenters would see me as some sort of right wing monster and I’m not, I’m just honest about my opinions and I would like to be liked by them.
        So I’m kinda reaching out to them by using an image of one of the heroes of “the left”, the man who led the only Communist superpower the world has seen.

        It doesn’t seem to be working though. They still hate me :-(

          Ah thanks.

          He was a fascinating figure I guess but given the mass killings he initiated history should not be kind to him.

          I’m with you on the redundant right-left ideology thing though.

            I’ll give that a read. I do find reading about these people, the Stalins, the Hitlers, the Pol Pots, absolutely fascinating. It’s like reading the most extreme dystopian fiction, I just can’t comprehend that these things actually happened…

          Strong proto-hipster vibe in that pic.

          The Waterboys always bring to mind a quote from one of Cork’s most estimable sons.

          Rattle Taggle? Nein Danke!!

      Because of this post I watched The Amazing Spider Man with my 5 year old and it was much better than I anticipated.
      So there’s always that :)

    I’m gonna say it- Joe Stalin was a fine looking man, all the same.
    Wasn’t too gone on the tache, mind.
    Am rather fascinated by him myself

      Why, darling? He was another shortarse suffering from “small man syndrome”. Think of Howlin with a big moustache – not so sexy now, eh?

        ‘We’re all the same size lying down.’
        I was often told that by shortarses.
