of pipes and bedtime stories

or, Video of Self Awkwardly Holding Laptop and Winning Farrago History Slam at Steampunk Opium Wars Night at The National Maritime Museum On 16 February with Poem About Not Saying No.

video credits go to the amazing Anna Chen who wrote an entire steampunk-styled poetry/play/opera about the Opium Wars. Imperialism! Drugs! Orientalism! Global Hegemony! Capitalism! Leather! Was a brilliant night. More on this later when I have finished writing an international law essay about, er…NATO and unilateral force…more of the same really….
