2014: Albums 10 – 6

December 19, 2014


Lists! Lists! Lists! Here’s a list of albums that I really really liked, but not as much as five other albums. In an actual order as well, excellent. 10: Mono // The Last Dawn/Rays of Darkness If you don’t know what Mono do by now, you never will know. It’s going to be quiet, it’s going to […]

2014: Other Albums

December 11, 2014


End of year lists are quite like crack to me. As a child I was a list-maker to the point of obsession, lists of cricket players, dinosaurs, crisps, god knows what else. Music became more and more important in my begrudging existing as my teenage years built in number, but there was no let up […]

2014: Ten Songs

December 5, 2014


I refrained from these year in review lists last year for some reason, I can’t quite remember why. Either way, I shan’t make the same mistake this year, so here we are to begin. There were a load of really wonderful songs released this year, spanning the genres and tickling different udders within all of […]

October 22, 2014


Out of all the countries that have splintered from what was formerly known as Yugoslavia, Macedonia is the one that has made the least headlines. It’s one that people often don’t realise was part of Yugoslavia, despite it’s hilariously long Yugo-centric name. It just hasn’t really hit the European headlines too much, except for a […]

An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery: RAH-SPEW-TIN

October 20, 2014


I was a big fan of the British comedy show ‘Red Dwarf’ in my younger years. Heck, I still am. One of my favourite episodes centred around the crew finding themselves on a planet inhabited by wax works of famous figures throughout history. As human and human-like beings are wont to do, they ended up […]

An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery: The King of Madagascar and His Peculiar Ambition

October 19, 2014


I may not have travelled the world, but I’ve travelled enough to meet a lot of people. They are a strange bunch, backpackers, all lofty ideals and flighty minds. Words such as explorer and venture get thrown around frequently, and whilst I wouldn’t venture as far to scoff at the idea every now and then […]
