MURMURATION

Something beautiful is broken. Rumour and disinformation is on the wing.

Disheartened with society, a man takes solace in the beauty of nature, and finds a joyous escape. However, it's not long before this escape is threatened by the very evils he was trying to flee. He must shape up if he is to help his new friends survive.

In a confused and data-drenched world, how can we see the truth of anything and hold on to what’s important?
A sharp, avian adventure through quantum theory, alternate realities, scientific discoveries, big data, AI, love and 38,000 starlings.

Love in isolation

I hope it's..

The Tory corruption champion (not sure if that's world champion or just European) heads to Liverpool to "sort them out"..

You can't move without a flag these days. the mood of the nation is positively flagtastic and there's a huge nostalgia for a gentler, more traditional time riddled with polio, rickets and Jimmy Saville.

Lockdown eases, all loose ends are being tied up, the scandal over ppe procurement and the accusations that certain people had "done very well out of it thank you very much, met a geezer down the pub, say no more, nudge nudge wink wink, mine's a stiff g&t down the winchester thanks Terry” all seem to be dying down and evidence got rid of.. sorry, profiteered from.. sorry not existing any more.. and like any similar situation, Notflix have made a series about it. here's a clip...

The Christmas Spirit is strong in this one..
