DM - the Alt-Right Band? Don't Make Me Laugh

Richard Spencer, white supremacist and all round nice guy has come unstuck when he tried to link 80s/90s band Depeche Mode as quote "Depeche Mode are the official band of the alt-right" on his Twitter page and it appears that DM have been less than happy with that idea, bearing in mind that they are left-leaning lecherous bunch, who aren't exactly renowned for their 'conservative' values.  The Guardian has come up with a nice article, which put into words the very thing that most 'Mode' fans are thinking.

Reach Out - Punch Face. Hahahaha

Back to the Drawing Board (A-Gain)

No automatic alt text available.

Must admit to going back to stage one of the second chapter and even further back to rewrite an intro, so that the rest of the essay chapters fall into place.  I am trying to figure what it is that I am missing, why the bloody thing lacks coherence.   If I am centering in on 'the mother' what does that mean in the instances that you have chosen.  On and on and on.  I have got to get a handle on this, or I can't write the diss, pure and simple.

A lot of head scratching today and a lot of referring back to the intro and the first chapter (oh and the 'recommendations to both).  What is it that I am not conveying?  Beats me right now.  Maybe I am not signposting the bloody obvious again - perhaps I am expecting them to be mind readers.  A bit 'FFS, you MUST have read the book, haven't you?' (and dare I say it, I sense that my lecturer has not = male and specialising in war history and Victorian imperialism).  I I maybe speaking out of turn and he is a sweet guy.

Going to bed.  This is going to be my ever waking breath from now til May 3rd.  67 days then - or less, actually as I am meant to get it to the media centre way before this.  Brilliant.
