Wouldn’t you like to see the secret stash of deliciousness from The Artist Formerly Known as HarryHarrison (at least to users of nerdlink filing-cabinet sites and OK Cupid; think of delicious as Tumblr but for nerds, not hipsters)?
Yes, of COURSE you would, you sick perv, you.
Behold, the collected bookmarks of Julian Assange:
- 24 JUL 06
- 15 JUL 06
- 11 JUL 06
Gogol Bordello (band) SAVE | SHARE [Oh, Julian, you hipster wannabe]
- 08 JUL 06
Voltaire and Emilie du Chatelet SAVE | SHARE [yeah, no wonder I love this man]
- 07 JUL 06
Access The Great Books SAVE | SHARE [do you think he’ll put his OWN book here, or insist you buy via Amazon affiliate link?]
- 30 JUN 06
And so on. At least he lost interest and got busy with Wikileaks before adding the obligatory “I’m in my late 30’s and still want to pull hipster chicks” nod to Arcade Fire.
Still, Arcade Fire DID do this:
for which the fact they are an ageing hipster’s favorite band is forgiven, because this particular iteration of this particular song is the great protest anthem of our time. We’re not as raw as The Clash, but our riots aren’t just Quiet: they’re silent, but for the clicking of keys on an iMac. Vaguely apologetic but inexorable, conscious of the past and very much aware of this moment in history, twee, precious, metrosexual but somehow effective nonetheless; yup, this is us, right here, right now. But where was I?
Oh yes, perving on Julian Assange, checking out four year old bookmarks, and introducing our celebrity gossip links for today.

I am still confused about the “Ratinox” reference. But then I always have been easily confused and borderline bewildered.
Ah, my fault for not explaining it. Ratinox is a word author Harry Harrison applied to his creation The Stainless Steel Rat. And Harry Harrison is Assange’s nom de plume. He’s read the series, I’m quite sure.
I think I should do another post maybe tomorrow explaining the relationship between the Stainless Steel Rat and Julian Assange, because they ARE the same person in so many ways.
Ahhh – I had forgotten that. It is at least forty years since I read SSR (I never read the sequels). I remembered him as the ultimate grain of sand in the corrupt gears of Government. Was ever any doubt about Assange and the SSR?
The first one is the best, but they’re all good up until he gets married and then they become progressively more ridiculous and less interesting. The twins? Fuck them, they’re as useless as the fucking Wonder Twins, but more irritating.
