H&M vs HM

Having been so hyped by every subsection of the media, you could be forgiven for believing that the it had already happened. Clips were being shared to no end, and tabloids already speculating about what would be said, as if it already had been. I am, of course, referring to that interview. When comparable high-profile …

Carry on Cummings

I write this – having escaped from the heat of the Cornish sun – whilst watching Dominic Cummings’ statement on BBC News. It occurs to me that I have never heard his voice, let alone see him providing a statement. The adage of “advisors advise, governors govern”, used to reinforce the divide between the two, …

The Poppy: What is it Good for?

In this short, off-piste, rather colloquial “article” (for want of a better word), I shall endeavour to discuss none other than the humble poppy. Earlier this morning whilst, *sigh*, scrolling through Facebook, I saw a post that had been created by clearly a bored and standoffish soul, that was subsequently shared by a guy I …

Il Gardellino (Movement 1): A Musical Appreciation of (part of) this Famous Piece

As the product of …

The plot seems rather simple: take four celebrities, take their children, and dump them in the places in which their progenitor matured. The four-part series follows the hardships of Gordon …

Bohemian Rhapsody vs Rocketman

This is an article I wrote for the school magazine last month, comparing the hit films ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘Rocketman’. Any sort of musical biopic is instantly appealing to me; hence, seeing Bohemian Rhapsody last year, and Rocketman this year was a no-brainier. Both films were immensely coveted by audiences the world over, and had …

A little about me…

Hello. One can only assume that you have decided to read this as you have nothing better to do; thank you! I am an 18 year old guy from Cornwall. Probably not your typical 18 year old male, but who is? I enjoy things that aren’t typically described as “cool”, nor “manly”. To put it …
