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

MUSIC & ART CHANGES EVERYTHING

Music and Art change everything. Honestly. It doesn’t matter if you’re an armchair fan or if you’re heavily involved in their worlds. At some point in your life an act has came on the radio, or shown up in your feed, or you’ve seen them playing for the first time or you’ve been personally handed …

HOW DID I FIND YOU?

One morning last week I woke up unusually early & inspired. The night before I’d been reading a really good book about productivity & what stops us from creating something. That book is Steven Pressfield’s book The War Of Art. I recommend it to anyone who is doing something creative yet hits a wall, or is …
