I get the appeal of Justin Bieber, he’s a good looking puppy with the clean cut face of a Walt Disney wet dream. What I don’t understand is why his fans feel it necessary to go on about it. I have two tattoos and an iron deficiency but I probably won’t bring either up unless…… Continue reading Stop ramming your beliebs down my throat.
I don’t know why it has taken me so long to read anything by dear Ernest, he fits perfectly into what I consider a great writer to be, he’s frank and courteous and at times poor and angry at the world. He is of the same school as Fitzgerald and Orwell in so far as…… Continue reading My first Hemingway.
I was updating my music on my phone last night and decided to try and give Warpaint’s album another listen. At the time it was released they were very much dubbed as being the new something or other and I find it very hard to get into something when everyone is telling me just how…… Continue reading Warpaint; a much belated album review.

I accept trial and error as being a part…… Continue reading Grammar Nazi me
So I’ve managed to find the full set from Arcade Fire at Hyde Park last Summer, and I’m sat listening to it with a cup of tea and I’m thinking to myself: why wasn’t I there again? At the moment I really can’t fathom it. I fell in love with the band on my first…… Continue reading Arcade Fire; Hyde Park 2011.
I believe this is the third blog I’ve started. I struggle to maintain these things you see. I can’t even say it’s a lack of commitment because I’m committed to my cause as a whole. The important things to remember are that I am determined, I won’t settle and that I am a massive creature…… Continue reading Let the wild rumpus start.
