A Magazine Front Cover Snob writes . . .

Looks like a 'Death Metalist' was brought in to design the front cover of next month's Socialist Standard

"Guys, there is not enough black.  . . . We need more black."



A Cut and Paste Merchant cuts and pastes . . .

Various ‎– Letter To Brezhnev (From The Motion Picture Soundtrack) (1985)



Imposs-005

A Part-Time Conspiracy Theorist writes . . .

That assault of Kieran Tierney in the second half  . . . the referee swallowing his whistle every time a Celtic player got fouled . . . but for all that, St Johnstone deserved the point.
