Feminism In India

To combat the circulation of sexist memes, and stifle the sexist laugh, counter feminist memes are in circulation as well. These feminist memes employ subversive humour to overturn the sexist humour, being able to afford a laugh at their expense.

Once again, I have to thank the members of #PrimarySchoolBookClub for introducing me to the work of an amazing author, Stewart Foster. I loved this book and found its storyline and central relationship utterly compelling. Felix Schopp is in his first year at secondary school,  we are introduced to him in the isolation room, or […]

The Diary of a Self-Employed Madman

I love laughing. I love telling jokes. I have a sense of humour that is a bit crude, a bit dark and a bit silly. This is one of my favourites. ‘I went to the doctors the other day for an all round check up. Compulsory for those over 40. After a while the doctor […]

I really love reading series, but sometimes, I really don’t like some of the sequels. I usually love the first book, and that’s my drive to continue the series, but here are a few that I really wasn’t a fan of. Life, The Universe & Everything by Douglas Adams I really loved the first Hitchhiker’s […]

I don’t normally like grafitti.  I will admit that.  However, when I was a student at Nottingham University in the early 1990’s, the gents toilets in the science library had some highly entertaining writings on the cubicle walls. Sociology degrees: please take one. Written on one cubicle wall: To play toilet tennis, please look at […]

A reader has no favourite book

I’ve been told that this is the type of book I would read. Which is very accurate – I really was reading it back then so making statement didn’t require to be a master of human psychic or logical deduction. But it is true, it is my type of book. Mostly because I don’t have […]

12 Juillet/July (36km Poo-San Esteban de Leces) Aujourd’hui fut plutôt ensoleillé, avec de superbes montagnes. On pouvait encore apercevoir les Picos. On a vu un mini Mont Saint Michel : une église au dessus de la marée, avec un petit village, qui était vraiment superbe. Puis aller à l’église en bateau, ça fait quand même […]

In these perilous times in which we all live—the beginning of the end-of-times, as some might say—I have become increasingly intrigued by the preponderance of undeniable stupidity evidenced by the human species. Of which I am a part. Consider the challenges currently facing us worldwide.  According to the oft-maligned Millennial cohort, that generation of innocents […]

(spoiler free) ‘The Dead Don’t Die’ sees director Jim Jarmusch pooling together actors from six previous films for an ensemble zombie horror-comedy; one which certainly puts the dead in dead-pan. Polar fracking has caused Earth to be knocked from its axis; this in turn leads the dead to rise up. In sleepy Centerville, which has […]

It’s Not Shaun Of The Dead: If you’re expecting a zombie film with Jim Jarmasch’s The Dead Don’t Die, even of the humorous kind like Shaun Of The Dead, you will be disappointed with this movie. The Dead Don’t Die is directed by indie director Jim Jarmasch so we knew what we were going in […]

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic […]

Even as someone who tries to follow as many of the big film festivals, it’s hard to keep track of every film that comes out. Between the mainstream and all the indies, films slip through my fingertips. It wasn’t until a month ago or so that all the hype of The Art of Self Defense reached my […]
