There are a few on this list I’ve heard of and one I listen to on the regs, the others are untapped but already added to my must listen list. Guess I better take … Read More Weekly Digest: Five Articles (#3)

Weekly Digest: Five Articles (#2)

A couple of articles I’ve enjoyed recently. What I Learned From Dating Someone Totally Wrong For Me I know what it’s like to be with the wrong person. I did it for 6 years, so this speaks to me on a deep level. Particularly this bit: The internal whisper that it was time to focus on my health and happiness became louder every time … Read More Weekly Digest: Five Articles (#2)

Black Mirror – Season 5: Striking Vipers

Season 5 of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror has been getting mixed reviews. I agree that the three episodes in the new set aren’t as strong as some of their previous counterparts but it’s still innovative and interesting television, and shouldn’t be written off completely. They’ve actually inspired me to go back to the beginning and review a few of the best episodes over the … Read More Black Mirror – Season 5: Striking Vipers

Other People’s Blogs

I’m a very bad blogger. I mean, I post regularly on my own blog which is fine but I’m bad at commenting and keeping up with other people’s blogs and I wish to change that. We’re a community after all and spreading the love is the right thing to do. Here are a few blogs I read as much as I can – some … Read More Other People’s Blogs

Weekly Digest: Five Articles

I thought I’d share a couple of articles I’ve been reading lately. Exploring the internet is one of the only things that gets me through my working day if I’m honest – that and my lovely work friends – and these are the ones that have caught my attention this week. Yes, Weekly Digest is back! How Tony Scott Gave ‘True Romance’ Its Happily … Read More Weekly Digest: Five Articles

Cool Breeze Over the Mountains: Keanu’s Year

Keanu was my first love. Honestly, when I first clapped eyes on his sultry good looks, he stirred something in me that wasn’t completely innocent or holy – he made me curious about the opposite sex. Parenthood was my jam in particular and when I think about it even now, I get a little tingle. I haven’t stopped loving him since and if we’re … Read More Cool Breeze Over the Mountains: Keanu’s Year

Wholesome Content*: Colouring Between the Lines

Sometimes the only thing I want to do is come straight home from work, make a cup of tea and sit on the sofa doing my colouring. This isn’t a euphemism for a heinous new sex act, I’m afraid. I actually mean colouring shit in. On my phone. For hours on end. Or rather, if I had my way it would be hours on … Read More Wholesome Content*: Colouring Between the Lines

Top Five: Podcasts

I’ve decided to start a new Top Five series to encapsulate a handful of things I like (and dislike) at a time. Also because I’m very lazy and this is a foolproof way to structure content without busting a nut. I’m a massive fan of the podcast medium as I’ve mentioned countless times before. I even produce and co-host my own (below). These are … Read More Top Five: Podcasts

Two Brilliant TV Shows

I’ve been so good at regularly posting here so I thought I’d keep up momentum and talk about a couple of things I’ve been watching lately. One sexy thriller with two feisty leads, one horribly unsettling interpretation of what could happen to the country if we’re not careful – and both currently available on the BBC iPlayer. *Minor spoilers* Killing Eve (2018-2019) After a … Read More Two Brilliant TV Shows

Truly Oddly Deeply

*Drag Race spoilers* While Drag Race doesn’t always pack the punch it used to (IMHO), I am always fully on board. I mean, it’s still extremely addictive television and more fun than most things, even at its least inspiring (and sometimes problematic). Season 11 hasn’t been too bad so far and has a couple of standouts for me, including larger-than-life Silky and Vanessa Vanjie … Read More Truly Oddly Deeply

The Category is… Live. Werk. Pose.

Pose is set in the world of 1987 and “looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the rise of the luxury universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.” *Minor spoilers* I’m fashionably late to the Pose party but I’m so glad I made it. Based around the 1980’s NYC ballroom scene, it … Read More The Category is… Live. Werk. Pose.

Fleabag

*Minor spoilers* Woooooo, Fleabag is back for a second series and I’m absolutely delighted! Written and starring the amazing Phoebe Waller-Bridge – the complex titular character Fleabag returns with new issues including a mammoth crush on a priest (Andrew Scott). Which is super hot, I won’t lie. Fleabag is brilliant because it’s touching, relate-able (remember when I had my own crush on a priest? … Read More Fleabag
