My Bowie Cleanse

Last year, upon learning of David Bowie’s death, I put myself on a “Bowie Cleanse” and I can’t recommend it enough. What was meant to be four weeks of reintroducing myself to his earlier music turned into nearly six months of reading, listening, watching and listening some more to Bowie...

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....

Mourning sickness

It’s been nearly two weeks and I still can’t quite process the fact that David Bowie is no longer of this earth. I’ve listened to no one else since hearing the news and have indulged myself in more interviews from the late 70’s and early 80’s than I should admit...

What does a feminist look like?

My husband is a massive feminist, so are a lot of the men I know and that is fucking important. We’ll never win the right to equality without supporting each other. We need alies because the word “feminism” is fast becoming a word people are abandoning along with the movement...

Sorry not sorry?

This week I have finally joined the legion of Beliebers. It turns out millions of pre-pubescent girls can’t be wrong. His catchy beats and simple, but effective lyrics, “my mamma don’t like you and she likes everyone,” (BUUUUURN!) are impossible to deny. Also, the kid really can sing and he’s...

Pissing Contest

Can we not compare? In a world where cars and handbags show status and rank us from the worthy to the worthless, In a world where the school you attend or the haircut you have places you in a little box, Can we not? It was Remembrance Day and I...

The Big Television Sex Lie

I spend a lot of time watching TV. I spend more time than I have to spare watching TV. Why? Well it keeps me out of the gym and from writing my novel and all kinds of other unsavoury habits. Also, I like it. I like the pure escapism of...
