Manchester City vs. Chelsea…

Man City are the self-depicted “holistic” club where talent is given chance to flower in a relaxed environment. Manager Manuel Pellegrini is not a coach given to over-complication. Within his simple setup, defenders defend, attackers attack and creative players create, with ball-winners winning the ball back. By contrast, the first job of every player at Mourinho’s Chelsea is to defend.

Basilisks, unicorns and productive Facebookers…

Somewhere the really good, talented Facebookers are diligently exercising self-discipline to use Facebook only for useful things. There are so many useful things! They’re catching up on current events, reimbursing each other for dinner over Messenger, RSVP’ing for book readings, choosing Airbnb stays based on friend recommendations. They don’t get lost in their Newsfeeds. Their trigger fingers aren’t locked on the “like” button. They aren’t me.

Rock ‘n’ roll talks about Kanye West…

He’s a fucking idiot, isn’t he? Does he even make his own albums? People aren’t interested in learning instruments and putting effort and time into it. They want it immediately. It’s McDonalds, isn’t it? It’s convenient. But all I hear is a loop starting, some bloke starts to sing or rap, and the loop finishes. There’s no shape to this stuff. And the lyrics just seem to be idiotic.
