The S-Town artwork is everything

If you’re one of the millions who’ve already been through the joys and sorrows of the “aural literature” that is the S-Town (aka ‘Shit Town’) podcast, you’ll know what I’m talking about. If you’re not, not to worry: there are no spoilers here. There’s been much discourse already over the …

Meme for 2015

It’s that time again: when I struggle to remember everything that’s happened through a post-Christmas haze of carbohydrates and vodka and whittle it all down to this niftily-structured end-of-year meme. I struggle to believe it’s been a year since my last one, particularly due to the worrying lack of posts …

Why Secretary spanks Fifty Shades of Grey

Event envy: Sony Xperia Z launch party

Jealous of the endless parties and events that the Made in Chelsea set seem to solely exist to decorate? Me too.
