5 Reasons Why London Made Me Smile This Month Or Jack Kerouac Was Kind Of An Arsehole, Wasn’t He?

In which I discuss my motivations for writing, and ponder why a certain douche nozzle frat boy is considered a literary iconoclast, remarkable novelist and poet.* You know that feeling you get that’s like a surge of inspiration, an electric current pushing you forward and physically forcing you to bring a pen to paper, to write…Read more 5 Reasons Why London Made Me Smile This Month Or Jack Kerouac Was Kind Of An Arsehole, Wasn’t He?

How the Government Spends Your Tax Contributions: A Quick Example Using London Police Horses

Yesterday on the bus to work I was gazing out of the window and brushing up on my favourite tardiness excuse — ’sorry there’s awful traffic at X due to Catastrophe Y and time delay is thus completely not my fault’ — when I came across a peculiar scene. I actually saw a real traffic jam. It’s as if…Read more How the Government Spends Your Tax Contributions: A Quick Example Using London Police Horses

Banks – Beggin For Thread

Active since May 2013, Banks has been slowly but surely etching her way onto the British music market. Zane Lowe has played her music. I have played her music (I used to have a radio show on my university's radio station; mainly involved making a fool out of myself in from of notable guests and listeners…Read more Banks – Beggin For Thread

Lykke Li – No Rest for the Wicked

She's finally back! Swedish indie songstress Lykke Li has just released her new album I Never Learn  (in March but hey, I only just heard!) and it's all very wonderful and weird and pleasing to my ears. The vocals are deep and velvety and gentle all at the same time and the music is a…Read more Lykke Li – No Rest for the Wicked

Russian-style Pancakes: Recipe

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A BLINIS RECIPE. What you English-speaking philistines call 'blinis' are a poor shit-stain excuse for Russian pancakes. In Russia, blini (blini already being the plural of the word blin aka 'pancake' in Russian, it's unclear why the addition of an '-s' is necessary...) are regular-sized thin pancakes served on their own…Read more Russian-style Pancakes: Recipe

Awkwafina – My Vag

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z726OPwCnjE Ironically following a song about 'getting lucky and gettin' some', here comes the boldest, weirdest and also catchiest song ever written [about a vagina]. It's a parody of Mickey Avalon's 'My Dick', and in my opinion is a much better version of it. You may be shaking your head in disappointment, or raising both…Read more Awkwafina – My Vag

Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers – Get Lucky

Been absent for a while due to a total immersion in everything and anything that is Game of Thrones related. I've been putting off watching the cult HBO show since it first started, all due to the fact that I considered too akin to Lord of the Rings, and therefore boring and unnecessarily gory. OH…Read more Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers – Get Lucky

Paramore – Still Into You, MV Analysis

Hi folks, below is a video post of good music. (Tryin' to keep it short and sweet -we've a lot of ground to cover.) This is yet ANOTHER music post because I don't really feel like discussing how much I love/hate Thatcher and/or how much she deserves/doesn't deserve a state funeral. I just don't have…Read more Paramore – Still Into You, MV Analysis
