I am really enjoying "We Are Bellingcat" by Elliot Higgins, and just getting amazed by their methods which are essentially a meticulous attention to detail. On instance was tracking down a Russian War criminal though the Russian disinformation and obfuscation by finding a name and mobile phone number on an insurance application.
Thing on this when you fill informs and especially those one offs to find out what kind of potato you are and the like.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone for pointers and how investigative journalism has been turned on it's head.
It is Halloween and published a Halloween playlist here on Vocal if you would like to check it out. When I see all the costumes and creatures out on Halloween I think how would people react if these suddenly became real. Now that would be interesting.
Musicwise as it's Halloween , we are going with "Hellraiser" by Ozzy Osbourne ad Ian Kilmister which I never knew existed but it ghosted in on me, and I really like it.
I am not sure if you are aware of my writing on Vocal but these are a few of my stories if you would like to sample them:
- The Never Ending Story - An Index of All My Vocal Writing
- A Halloween Film Evening
- A Waterfall of Clouds
- The Witch's Promise
- Waiting For The Green Light - The Genius of Bill Hicks
