Why do gigs suck?

I don’t see a whole lot of live music. I mean, obviously I see and review musical shows quite often, but I reckon I could count the amount of gigs I go to on one hand – ermm, plus a couple of fingers!? 

This is mostly because there are only a select few artists or bands I’d want to travel into the city and pay dolla to see, but also because, well… gigs can suck.

Briefs: Close Encounters - a review.

I was lucky enough to see Briefs: Close Encounters live in London’s Leicester Square Spiegeltent last Sunday 11th of November. 

Basically, I read the words ‘drag’ and ‘burlesque’ and I was 100% in.

I just eat plants now.

At the beginning of this year, I finally went ‘full vegan’. After an actual lifetime of being vegetarian (no, that doesn’t mean I ate fish) and 2 years dairy free, I finally took the plunge and gave up what little animal products remained in my diet in order to transform into a 100% all-green plant-based 'Vg' Human. (Like the Hulk, but a bit nicer.)

Recent Reads: the 37th, 38th and 39th of 2018.

I have read a mad mix of books, lately. I am definitely still loving not having to stick to a schedule this year – I’m just trying to not buckle under the pressure of proofs, now! But I must ask you readers… should I employ a loose reading routine next year? Maybe a gentle one, like ‘one non-fic per month’ or something? If you have any ideas, send ‘em my way via Twitter or in the comments below, pretty please.

Right, let’s get into this…
