In conversation on a popular social networking site, I claimed to judge rappers based on their cartoon references. It’s something I hadn’t realised before, but it’s true. Well, half true. On my Top Trump rapper cards, I’d have to also include their number of arrests and the weight of their last consignment. But ultimately, a […]
Life’s pretty busy these days and I feel like I never get the time to write. My fingertips are often tender with bruises from writing emails or to do lists or transcribing interviews but I don’t get around to writing for fun. I’m aware that my blog is becoming a graveyard of music videos, albeit a really […]
I love behind the scenes stories like this. Though this film is only brief and not incredibly insightful, I like the way it’s edited. It’s such a blunt and jumpy way of telling a story, similar to my favourite style of writing often seen in books by James Ellroy. I feel that this guy could […]
Yesterday I interviewed Mr Birthday Sex himself, Jeremih for SB.TV. Our conversation about R. Kelly led me on a 12 Play YouTube-marathon-session when suddenly I Wish popped up. In that mini YouTube still-shot were thousands of memories. Though I seem to have mentally blocked the bit when he talks to his mum, aka the sky, […]
My aim in life is to look as gangsta as U-God does in this video… Tweet
Last week I interviewed Labrinth for SB.TV. We went to school together so it was a fun interview. He showed so much talent throughout secondary school and it was obvious he would make music for a living. Labrinth is multi-skilled; he can sing, write, play instruments and produce. I bet you didn’t know he can […]
Now I know that everyone’s very excited that it’s my birthday today, but let’s take a moment to remember two of the 20th century’s most iconic figures, who also celebrated their birthdays on December 1st. First up, Richard Pryor, a comic genius who was loved by all. Pryor would have been 70 today. Next up […]
In the spirit of Halloween, I thought it would be nice to post some pictures of people dressed up. What better way than a countdown of the top 10 arrests taking place while the suspect is dressed up. Nothing, exactly. 10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. Images from holytaco.com. Tweet
I met a guy in New York who told me a story about the time he saw Wu Tang perform in Paris when he was 12 years old. After the show, he was allowed to go backstage and meet the group. His strongest memory from that night is seeing Ol’ Dirty Bastard reaching for a […]
This sums up why I am starting to hate the area that I grew up in. If you are described in this video, please place a gun in your mouth now. I promise we will hold a vigil for you tonight at The Alibi.
I may sound like a massive LOSER but Vice Style made my day with this shoot. Animals and clothes are two of my favourite things, so combining the two is enough to make me smile. I think the Meercat and Wallabee are my personal favourites amongst the models. Photography: William Selden Art Direction: Kim Jones […]
I have a habit of stealing photos as I trawl through websites. I can’t remember where I found this, but I think it’s a beautiful photo. Sorry I don’t have any background information to share.
Every summer holiday I take care of my little sister Ronnie during the school holidays partly because I’m a lovely human being, but mostly because I want to keep her off the pole*. Over the years I have attempted to educate her on classic films to no avail. Like, I don’t know if you’ve realised, […]
On the subject of Danny Brown, I dreamt that I was wearing the most amazing zebra print jeans and matching shoes which I’m sure was caused by watching this video before bed…
Recently I went to see the film, Get Him To The Greek, because I’m super cool and cultured… But anyway, there’s a scene in which Russell Brand says something about life being better through love and security rather than experiences, or something equally deep and meaningful. I don’t agree. As shallow as it sounds, at […]
I need this poster in my life. If anyone comes across a copy on their travels PLEASE let me know or I may die! And no, I’m not being dramatic. R.I.P Guru.
