Death and The Mall

August 30, 2007

The inspiration for Richmond came when I saw a teenage goth couple playing crazy golf in…God, Blackpool, was it? Somewhere like that. In my memory, the guy has a huge skull on the back of his T-shirt and white make-up, long buckled-up boots, the whole bit…and he was very carefully writing down his score with one of those tiny pencils while standing beside a miniature windmill.

In the end, my Richmond has been bouncing back and forth between extremes…I never know how far to push the make-up, but this picture suggests that, when it comes to real life, there is no such thing as ‘too far’.

“There were times, huddled on the floor in solitary confinement with that head-banging music blaring dawn to dusk and interrogators yelling the same questions over and over, that Vance began to wish he had just kept his mouth shut.”

What happens to whistleblowers in Iraq.

Anyone who read ‘Imperial Life In The Emerald City’ will remember Custer Battles, the hilariously-named, awesomely corrupt company that provided ‘security’ for Baghdad International Airport. What a surprise it is to hear their name mentioned in this article.
