I don’t know what it is about London, but I bloody love running around those streets …. it was the playground of my childhood and always makes me catch my breathe looking at the amazing mixture of architecture, shrouded in the winter sunshine. It’s just one of those places that has an eclectic mix of […]

I was out daygaming with Xants on Sunday past and we decided to make a rare turn by Trafalgar Square. It was his turn to open and we both spotted a stunner walking slowly through the middle of the square. “THERE’S A SET!” hollered an excitable Xants. “Yes it is, you bastard!” I confirmed. Off […]

Samsung today unveiled a barrage of new Galaxy S10 models, including its first 5G model, but as if that wasn’t enough – it also launched a folding phone – the Galaxy Fold. All in all, Samsung launched the S10e (with 5.8-inch display), a ‘standard’ S10 (with 6.1-inch display), a maxed out S10+ (with 6.4-inch display), […]

Me la cavo

There’s been something on my mind a while. So, I’m trying something. I appreciate I got dark a short while ago, and I’m sorry that I feel I need to go there again. But I feel it’s something more people have experienced than are willing to talk about, not just amongst women, but also in […]

My 2 cents

One of the first stumbling blocks learners of Russian must face is the fact there are two words for ‘Russian’ in that very language: русский (russkiy), and российский (rossiyskiy). The former is used to describe cultural, linguistic, and historical nouns; the latter, those pertaining to the modern Russian state. Those who venture into studying a little […]

I may regret this, but....

I thought I had lost all record of the London to Edinburgh via local buses journey I took between 1st and 3rd April 2008.  But, looking for something else, I found two printouts which, scanned and put together, are a recreation of what I posted on MySpace at the time and sent to the Guardian, […]

Recognising a Rococo Renaissance “I would define the baroque style as that style that deliberately exhausts (or tries to exhaust) its own possibilities, and that borders on self-caricature. The baroque is the final stage in all art, when art flaunts and squanders its resources.” –Jorge Luis Borges Baroque and Rococo began their reign as the […]

Sue Townsend published her Adrian Mole diary series between 1982 and 2009, and reading them is like being reminded of various aspects of social change within UK society.  The differences are stark in many ways and I thought it would be interesting to document some of them here. We first met Adrian Mole through his […]

BY CHARLOTTE DAVEY I appreciate that, in the grand scheme of ‘A Lifetime’, a four-year long relationship isn’t the most impressive feat. But in your early twenties, four years is enough time to transform from a reckless student who contributes little more to society than profound thoughts on the work of Virginia Woolf to a […]

Little Outrageous

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t […]

Within the black community, being ‘thick’ is the ideal. I’ve never been thick. I never had a problem being thin…or as some people would say, ‘marga’ (sp). However, when I was at uni, I spent the first two years being obsessed with my body because I was constantly told by my friends, and the people […]

Vetty’s never told anyone she gets feelings for girls as well as boys. She would have told Pez, her best friend, if her Mum hadn’t died and she hadn’t had to move out of London, but now Vetty and her family are moving back into their old London flat and Pez is back in her […]
