That is all

Sunday, December 26, 2010

After much thought, I've decided to wrap up this blog.

I'll no doubt be returning to the blogosphere sometime in the New Year, but with a new identity and hopefully something a little more thoughtful and mature, containing much of what I've learned throughout my first spell in amongst you all.

This blog started out primarily as a platform to rant. But I've been through the anger stage now, or at least have it under control to a point where I'll only direct and unleash it at the right people.

In saying that though, I find it impossible to disagree with The Captain as to what the eventual solution will be.

Some say violence is the last resort of an immature mind. I say it boils down to who initiates it. There's nothing immature about standing up and defending yourself.

The state is good at initiating violence as the aggressor, is infinitely immature in its namecalling and ostracising of "heretics" and can violently kidnap you and lock you away based on what a couple of its apparatchiks in white coats merely say about you. It can steal from you, is happy to beat you to a pulp, enslaves your children and your childrens' children with debt, lies to you, and thinks it can dictate every last facet of your life even down to what you can and can't put into your own body. Which raises the question: who really owns you? And all this, without even mentioning the EU and two impossible-to-justify invasions of the Middle East.

The state and your monarch, in collusion with some of the biggest moneymen and powerbrokers in Britain, Europe and the world, started this rigged fight a long, long time ago. Any violence on our part now is merely defensive, and not a moment too soon, frankly. I've always been peaceable, but we will likely reach a time when being peaceable sees you either bludgeoned or imprisoned.

Until the big fight comes, I keep in my mind at all times that even sheep (and their closest relatives—Mr and Mrs Normal) stampede sometimes.

To finish off, many thanks to this blog's guest authors, and also to those who've taken the time to comment and read this stuff. It's been a pleasure having you all around.

Enjoy the rest of your Christmas. And a happy 2011 to you and yours. I'll probably see you round some time.

A load of bloggers in my RSS feed have thrown in the towel recently, some of them many many times .. .. .. Don't do it. If you want to change the way you blog then change the way you blog. These pages form part of your history, your journey to where you are now and I think it would be a shame to lose the continuity.

My blogging style and content has altered many times as I've tried to find a place in the world for my voice, thoughts and feelings. I don't feel bound by what went before because my core beliefs have remained constant.

I'll be sad to see you go if you decide you can't continue.

Goodnight Vienna Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

I'm sorry to see you go CS - hope you don't go too far and that you stay in touch. Good luck.

Bucko Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

What Manwiddicome said. It will be a great loss if you do go.

However, it's your blog and your life so I wish you all the best if you still choose to.

If you should return, let us know.

fraser Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

I know you won't disapear for good CS.
refresh yourself, a slight change in direction maybe, a fresh blog?Just let me know when your back...

Oldrightie Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

I think you are wrong,CS but understand your thinking. Guest on mine any time you like. Best of everything, OR.

The Talking Clock Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

Not another neighbouring blog taking time out..? Is there something in the water? (don't answer that!)

If it's more than a despairing wobble (which is all I hope it is), be sure to keep us informed of any new direction you take.


Katabasis Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

On the violence bit CS, I'm very much starting to come around to your way of thinking myself.

I hope this is only a temporary break - and if you come back under a different name do please let us all know where to find you!

The Boiling Frog Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

Sorry to see you go CS, though not really unexpected (is it the Boxing Day units talking ;-)? Hopefully we'll see you in a new guise, but if not it'll be a sad loss.


Corrugated Soundbite Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

MW: Thanks for stopping by. Don't see you round there parts too often ;-)

I'm going to leave this blog up as there are some posts I quite liked. A lot of ranting and assorted rubbish in between, but I'll let it stand for as long as Google does.

I think all our voices, tones, and thoughts change all the time. Or at least notably in the space of say, a year or two.

But upon my return, I'll start afresh, possibly posting less frequently than I used to on here but more factually.

Corrugated Soundbite Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

GV: Thank you. I certainly can't see myself leaving the blogs for as long as I have internet access. There's a whole internet full of info out there that I'm out to consume :-)

Besides, lots of people say they're quitting and they very often come back. I know I'll be back in some guise or other. Gets a tad addictive!

Corrugated Soundbite Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

Cheers Bucko. I'll still be around and still reading. I've been reading blogs most days over this last year even if I've been an infrequent commenter.

A break is definitely needed, and when I start up again in the new year I dare say I'll stop by yours (and one or two others) and drop a comment or two ;-)

Corrugated Soundbite Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

fraser: Absolutely. I've possibly been a bit vindictive at times on this blog and it's not the sort of thing that attracts newbies to read non-mainstream blogs if the tongue-in-cheek aspect of it doesn't shine through.

I'll start again with a new one, as you did, if I recall correctly.

Corrugated Soundbite Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

Many thanks, OR. My thinking is that 2012 is going to be the real biggie, with a glum "teetering on the edge" sort of a status quo for 2011.

I don't like my own predictions, but I do like to be pragmatic and prepared. So it's inevitable that at times I'll come across as a bit of a doom monger, even though I do lots of walking, have a good family and am actually quite content!

I see us all being pushed further and further into a corner which isn't big enough for all of us, with more of us (particularly those paying off mortgages, and with numerous other debts) reaching a pitch where there's nothing left to lose.

Corrugated Soundbite Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

TTC: I took a look through my archives earlier and realised that what had started out as a rant blog had evolved more into a "discussion of taboo issues style" blog with some of my own thoughts thrown in, albeit with a smattering of misdirected vitriol at times.

As for the water... Well, we're probably on the same page with regards to our theories on that!

Corrugated Soundbite Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

Katabasis: I'm glad it's not just me! I've always been peaceable and have never even been involved in a fight.

But then again, nobody has treated me with the same disdain as the state treats us all. There may or may not be those in the lower ranks who would like to change it from within, but really, the whole thing just needs burning to the ground with only the very basics (i.e. small local government) built as its replacement.

I'm going to have a think, and do a lot more reading. Then after all that, I'll be recharging the batteries and starting up again. Should be fun!

Corrugated Soundbite Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

TBF: Cheers. I'm quite sober actually, although I do aim to put paid to that shortly!

I shall no doubt see you in the New Year sometime. Might be doing a bit of deep research on the EU myself in the meantime ;-)

Captain Ranty Sunday, 26 December, 2010  


Another good 'un going.

I feel somewhat responsible now! You nailed me not once but twice in your departure speech.

If I delete those two posts will you stay?

Just kidding. You need a break and, I sense, a chance to reinvent yourself. As my old mum used to say, "If things didn't change, they'd stay the same".

Go. But FFS, come back.


Corrugated Soundbite Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

CR: I thought I'd do my bit to (hopefully) help your Wikio rankings. I know how much it'd piss off the statists, so it had to be done.

I shall be back in good time, which may draw the odd sigh from some quarters ;-) There's just too much information to be garnered both from other people's posts, and the comments people leave on mine. I'd miss it incredibly if I stopped permanently.

manwiddicombe Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

CS: I drop by frequently, or at the very least read the RSS, but never really feel that I have much to add to the conversation. Since the General Election in May I've had a whole heap of personal shitstorm to deal with (still ongoing) that meant I dropped off the radar but I'm starting to refind the voice within.

Glad to hear that the blog will probably remain and be added to in the future. Good luck with whatever it is you need to do.

Barking Spider Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

I sensed this coming, CS, I'm sorry to see this blog closing down but I'm looking forward to your new one.

My views have changed a lot over the last year and a half as I've woken up to what's really going on. The final confirmation of the actual amount of shit we're in came after the election in May - we're totally fucked unless action is taken - and taken soon.

I'm also by no means a violent person but I've now come to the conclusion that it's the only way to change anything for the better. Our political class are nothing but a shower of traitors and oppressors - lampposts and piano wire for them, methinks - and don't start me on our cuntish police "service"!

I'm also in complete agreement with you about 2012 - shit is going to go down and it will happen before Obamalama gets the boot - all wrapped up in some shite about the end of the Mayan Long Count, no doubt!

All the best for 2011, mate, and don't stay away for too long.

Spidey ;-)

fraser Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

You recal correctly CS.

Dazed And Confused Sunday, 26 December, 2010  

I have to say that unlike everyone making comments above, I've gone completely the other way, and have lost interest entirely for now with the blogosphere in general.

All political parties I find are a complete waste of time and space, and I feel that there's far better forums Internet wide, to express my disdain for those whom wish to rule us, and for no other reason than to implement their own creeds agendas with the British tax payers monies.

That's the only thing that any of the bastards are ever interested in.....Our money!

From Militant left to perceived far right, I see nothing but pond scum.

JJ Monday, 27 December, 2010  

Why not add some pics?

Merry Xmas

It was fun and informative while it lasted CS, the reason I left few comments was that you generally cover all the bases in your rants leaving little to add bar repetition thusly
"(The State) can steal from you, is happy to beat you to a pulp, enslaves your children and your childrens' children with debt, lies to you, and thinks it can dictate every last facet of your life even down to what you can and can't put into your own body."
Quite so and no change since the election.

Come back soon.

All Seeing Eye Monday, 27 December, 2010  

You can tell a lot about a blogger's state of mind, motivation and drive from their last handful of posts. Maybe a lean patch, maybe real life interfering or maybe in the mood to quit. I had a horrible idea that I'd spotted the last one in here recently.

It's a damn shame; this place was an essential read, but I don't think you'll be away for too long. Different ID, different tone maybe but I think we'll spot the style that we've come to know and appreciate.

See you soon, somewhere.

Amusing Bunni Monday, 27 December, 2010  

Hi CS! I'll be sorry to see you go! But of course you can't keep a good man down, and I'm happy you'll resurface somewhere. I know you'll let us know when the time comes.

I hope you are having enjoyable Holiday's and that the New Year is a great one for you. Keep in touch and all the best! You can have a laugh over my way. I got my aggressions out watching homey hit ppl over the head.
;-) Cheers ~ Bunnikins

James Higham Tuesday, 28 December, 2010  

There is much gloom and we're starting to get the reaction now - that we're just spoilsports and doom and gloom merchants. The human brain is a wonderfully adaptable thing.

Dick Puddlecote Tuesday, 28 December, 2010  

Very sorry to hear that, CS, your writing is always top quality. As Katabasis says, make sure you let us know where your new home is to be.

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 29 December, 2010  

MW: Many thanks. Indeed, the blog shall remain as an archive to my year or so of documented cuntishness ;-)

Best wishes for 2011.

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 29 December, 2010  

Spidey: Same here mate. I came into the blogosphere a conservative(ish) type, and find myself drifting closer to anarchy. Not quite there yet as I do still believe in a small amount of local government, but I ask myself how much we need a central government at all!

With the violence thing - as I see it, they're more than happy to use it against us, so I'm having to face up to the reality of having to use it back in self defence. It's good to be prepared though, even if it never happens ;-)

All the best mate, see you in the new year!

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 29 December, 2010  

Dazed: I see the same pond scum. I'm sure there are some in the very minor parties with an interest in improving things (as per their perception of improvement, whatever that may be), but the honest ones will never get elected and the dishonest ones will obviously be bought if/when they are ever elected.

I'll still be reading the blogs as I've lost all interest in the media. Run by the establishment, for the establishment, is how I view it. Haven't read a paper since well before Christmas now.

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 29 December, 2010  

JJ: I've bookmarked that for future Christmases, should we all be online, that is ;-)

All the best and a happy 2011.

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 29 December, 2010  

Banned: I did miss a bit in that paragraph you quoted actually! The bit about the state actually stealing children.

If we ever do have a revolution of some sort to clear out the entire rotten establishment, it may be one of the very few that isn't somehow funded or encouraged by the powers that be. That'd be pretty sweet ;-)

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 29 December, 2010  

ASE: Many thanks for the compliment. I've always liked the odd bit of sweary mayhem around here but I can't deny the compliments are equally pleasant to read ;-)

My blogging energy is still quite low at the moment, but it'll inevitably come seeping back. That's why I'd find it so hard to quit. Plus I enjoy the ensuing conversations, rants, and information that comes flowing in via the comments.

All the very best for 2011, ASE!

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 29 December, 2010  

Hi Bunni

I certainly will! A break is needed, but as I've been saying to one or two of the others, I'll most certainly resurface (unfortunately, lol). And I'll no doubt be popping over to yours regularly so I'm not going to be easy to get rid of ;-)

Hope you had a great Christmas, and all the best for 2011. See you soon!

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 29 December, 2010  

DP: Many thanks. It's always amazing what red wine can do for one's grammar ;-)

Not quite sure when I'll be starting afresh, or indeed what direction it will take, but I'm sure that given time, Google will cease to look upon it favourably ;-)

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 29 December, 2010  

James: The snow and ice is no doubt partially to blame for my sluggishness round these parts ;-)

I think we all have to be prepared for a bit of doom and gloom - and no small amount of hardship - especially towards the end of the coming year, when I suspect we'll see proof positive (even amongst the sheeple), that the honeymoon period is well and truly over.

That's why I started brewing at home ;-)

Dark Lochnagar Thursday, 30 December, 2010  

CS, sorry to see you going. Although, I don't often comment I drop in from time to time. I agree with you that the people of this country have to wake up and violence is the only way to change the system. I never thought I would have said that 30 years ago. I must be getting more Bolshy as I get older. All the best.

Angry Exile Saturday, 01 January, 2011  

CS, very sorry to see you go, though at the same time I'll be interested to see the new style CS blog when it starts. Hope it happens because if you leave the blogosphere completely a lot of blogrolls will be the poorer for it.

JuliaM Monday, 03 January, 2011  

Sorry to see you go, but sometimes a change is as good as a rest, and I hope you'll be back and refreshed soon.

Nomine Tuesday, 04 January, 2011  

Hey there brother, as you know I know where you are coming from on this....see you soon dont forget to introduce yourself when you return!

Harbinger Tuesday, 04 January, 2011  

Hi CS,

I waited and waited for an article from you and then I read this. I'd just like to say it's been a pleasure meeting you and I've really enjoyed your articles and debating with you, or should I say agreeing. LOL
I too have wrapped up the blog like yourself. I feel that I can't do anything more on the blogsphere and a more affirmative action is needed, of course I don't know what. I have your email will drop you a longer message that this.

Again, I'm glad that you've opened your eyes to much on reality and I'm glad I helped you (in parts) to do so, although you just needed a slight nudge thanks to your inquisitive nature. You're most certainly not part of the herd, an individual if ever I met.

Keep in touch CS. Again it's been a pleasure making your acquaintance and keeps me sane knowing there are like minds out there such as yourself.

Happy New Year and good luck for your future.
