Please Spike My Drink
"Please Spike My Drink" is Nick's blog (commenced July 2016).
Many moons ago, back in about 2004, Nick used to write a column for a Melbourne, Australia street-press publication called “Fresh Underground Culture Magazine” (otherwise known as FUCM).
The title of the column was “Please Spike My Drink” (PSMD) … which alluded to how sick and tired Nick hoped many people were, with swallowing the kind of lies, banal drivel and doublespeak provided by government or their complicit mainstream-media’s Kool-Aid.
PSMD generally covered any topic Nick thought was kind of important or interesting at the time. It ranged widely across geopolitics, the nature (and subversion) of democracy, the “bread & games” distractions of celebrity and modern sporting contests, health and wellness in the context of a poisonous food-supply, the ever-encroaching dangers of political correctness gone mad, and the ongoing subversion and degrading of society generally by those with money and power, etc.
Essentially, the goal of the column was to entertain, but at the same time inform, and moreso, to get the reader to hopefully question whatever assumptions they may have previously taken for granted as a result of their cultural conditioning. It was an irreverent, sometimes satirical, often funny, and always thought-provoking take on the issues of the day.
Anyway, in 2016, probably because of the sheer ludicrousness playing out in the farcical US election circus, Nick felt more compelled than ever to resurrect PSMD as a blog.
Enjoy! (If that's the right word!)
