Just pulled this list of pieces together to test something on Facebook. It’s not everything I wrote this year: but hopefully some of the more interesting bits. Hope it might fill a reading gap for someone.

First, a festive bit about establishment hegemonies, Twitter and panto:https://www.imperica.com/viewpoint/twitters-pantomime-jon-bounds

Something the about creative destruction of modern capitalism http://paradisecircus.com/2015/12/14/brutal-beautiful-battered-were-losing-the-war-for-our-soul/

Then this about group psychology and politics: https://www.imperica.com/en/features/pluralistic-ignorance-and-the-modern-condition

A bit where I predicted Jeremy Corbyn would win and got slated:

A clickbait listicle about 8 computer games from Birmingham that changed the whole world, or somethinghttp://paradisecircus.com/2015/07/23/8-brummie-games-that-changed-the-uk-home-computer-scene/

And a piece about why we buy books we don’t read http://popandpolitics.co.uk/2015/01/26/by-the-book-we-are-what-we-read-not-what-we-say-we-do/

A thing about Brummie accents and stupidity for the Telegraph:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/11679232/Brummie-is-more-than-just-beautiful-its-salright.html

Something about taking my motorbike test: http://www.contributoria.com/issue/2015-01/546284a8759c13910100011a/

A Marxist review of TV’s Wolf Hall (and other TV hits) http://olredeyesisback.tumblr.com/post/113711302410/wolf-hall

An interview with the lovely Stephen Duffy of the Lilac Time

And finally a torturous twist on the nativity to take a rise out of ‘sharing economy’ types. Described as ‘a hard read’ by a local critic http://paradisecircus.com/2015/12/22/christmas-is-for-sharing/
