Coming home from a meet up with some people from the London Podcast Festival I sat on the tube. Quite in my own little world after the last two days having had my bike stolen, then my laptop refusing to pick up wifi and other equally irrelevant minor nuisances not worthy of a mention when I caught … Continue reading What’s in a Smile?
The English language is a funny thing, especially since most it has never really been English; but that's a blog for the linguists. I was in conversation with Amy who runs the Margate Arts Club (guess where it is?), about interviewing her for my podcast. It was really a reminder as she'd already said yes … Continue reading To Tolerate or not To Tolerate?
I decided to check out this law that was posted on a blog from the positive news website. The blogger named Tom Lawson said in his article that "section 377 of the penal code" in Indian law is one that will be amended as it discriminates against people due to their sexual orientation and that … Continue reading New Law in India Protects the Rights of LGBTQ Communities

I sat and spoke to a homeless woman I know in Canterbury and as we conversed two men stopped to … Continue reading I’m Homeless, Not a Drug Dealer
At least he said he painted it. There's no reason for me to doubt him, it's just one of those things that entred my mind when looking at his pictures. He said "that's £20, this one's £10" and went into a rant about "I sell these for homeless people. In the galleries you'll get a … Continue reading Painted by a Pisshead
Image is a still frame courtesy of Tomas Jefanovas website After contacting Tomas Jefanovas about my review for his film Busy that I saw in the Margate Arts Club and requesting an interview for my podcast, he responded generously saying he was happy to be interviewed and also suggested I might look at his other film Mervyn Blackwood, as it … Continue reading Mervyn Blackwood. Film Review
It seems strange to say that I am being drawn to art so strongly. When I think of my journey into art I can honestly say that it began when I found a friends post on facebook. It was a youtube video of Throbbing Gristle at the Astoria in London playing their song "Discipline". In my ignorance … Continue reading Art, My Religiosity?
