Notes on a Suicide

On the 18th of May, 2017 Chris Cornell hanged himself in his hotel room and on the 21st of July, his good friend, and fellow stellar vocalist, Chester Bennington did the same on what would have been Chris’s 53rd birthday. Fuck. The thing about suicide is that it often defies...

Daddy Issues

If you woke up at 8am on a Sunday, what would be your first thought? Mine was, “fuck this” followed immediately by, “I gotta pee,” so that’s what I did. When I tottered unsteadily back into the bedroom, blearey-eyed and bemused, Steve was looking at his phone and mumbled, “your...

Hooray! It’s Women’s Day!

via GIPHY Oh goody! It’s time to observe and celebrate the day the world has put aside for us womenfolk in an attempt to demonstrate that we have value even though we are not men. Strike up the band! This year’s International Women’s Day is more important than ever. Women...

If you haven’t watched the most recent episode of Girls then you should. This show, through all its series, and for all its flaws, has created moments of utter brilliance and this week’s episode is one of those moments. I’m not being hyperbolic when I say that American Bitch is...

George Michael, Faith and Feminism

George Michael was a mess. And how liberating that was for the rest of us, who were also messy, to see someone so handsome, talented and successful also unable to keep their shit together. This has always been one of the reasons I loved the man. His inability to remain...

Mean Mugging

On Wednesday evening Steve and I arrived in Bangkok to begin the holiday I’ve been waiting eight long months for. Yeah, I can hear you now, ‘but you’ve been to Bali like five months this year.’ So? That’s work. And ask Clare, I cry a lot and it is not...

Bali Hi!

Holy shit. My third week in Bali is coming to an end and I’ve just realized that since my arrival I’ve produced nothing creative whatsoever, unless you count some pretty epic Face Swaps from my first weekend and a bit of Pollock-like explosive diarrhea. I’ve paused my writing deadlines and...

Hot Sauce

I have a feeling that people aren’t going to love this post, but I feel like I have to write it. Yesterday the interweb exploded due to Beyoncé dropping a secret single just a day before her big Superbowl performance. If you haven’t seen the video for Formation please do....
