ARTISAN BREAD RECIPE FOR DUMMIES

  I have the most foolproof Artisan Bread recipe there is. Tried & tested in my kitchen 3 times so far. I’m talking nice, brown & crusty on the outside with enough air inside to stay soft, bubbly & delicious. Usually this kind of recipe requires a dutch oven but man has to emulate the …

CATS COME TO ME

The other week I was listening to a Morrissey interview with Russell Brand & on the subject of cats – he said “cats, you can’t move to them, they have to come to you”. The sentiment is something I have known for a while but it sent me off down memory lane. I’ve always been …

WAITING FOR THE GREEN MAN

Another morning on the bicycle taking toddler Paz to nursery. Its a short ride passing hundreds of coffee-hungry students under our local cafe’s umbrellas, drifting past different countries’ Embassies & down towards Tivoli park, but my hands certainly feel the chill. “Lets wait for the green man” I say as people straggle themselves to work. …

REPETITION IN ART & LIFE

So back in May 2016, you may recall my artwork for the Volume 2 cover. It was essentially a mockup of an A3 linocut I had made. On the run up to this I sold a handful of my fans MORNIN prints that were very similar to the Volume 2 cover art. Instead of Volume 2 …

ANIMAL SURNAMES & GOATS AHEAD OF THEIR TIME

Over coffee my girlfriend gets a text from a co worker & tells me their surname translates to Goat! I’m baffled. “Do you know how amazing that is?” – Honestly, I was quite jealous. She went on to tell me its quite common in Slovenia. Many people have surnames after animals. Also fruits and vegetables …

JUST IN TIME

There’s nothing we disdain more than the clock. Everyday we have deadlines to meet. Most of them seem like a necessary inconvenience like getting up at 7.30 so you can arrive on time at your job or take your kid to school. Deadlines aren’t just about handing in work. They’re cut off points in time …

HOW KIDS IN THE UK HEARD RAVE MUSIC

Last night I tuned into Mumdance‘s radio show on London’s Rinse FM online from my apartment in Ljubljana. I knew Mumdance had some very special guests (for him) on the show. I would learn that Mumdance as a kid/teen (much like myself in the nineties) was heavily into UK Rave music. So many cool memories …

PREPARING FOR THE RAMP

I was riding my girlfriend’s bike back to our apartment this morning after dropping Paz at Nursery. Her bike is an old imported black Mamachari. Its a sturdy Japanese city bike which I recommend to anyone but it only has 1 speed. Driving past Cankarjedom (a big events hall in Ljubljana) there is a big …

DOING THINGS FOR A LONG TIME

So today I was on Twitter and I came across a few brilliant reviews of Glasweigan DJ Duo & Clubnight OPTIMO‘s 20th anniversary party that happened over the weekend. They are infamous for not having a code of music & will literally invite anyone they liked to play the party and will play any song regardless …

THE RAINBOW FISH STORY

Reflecting on life is sometimes easier through Children’s books. Reading a good story to your son or daughter before bed will do the trick often by suprise. One book I’ve been reaching for lately is The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. Although the protagonist “Rainbow Fish” is beautifully swagged out with a rainbow of glittering …
