I have been collecting my non- music writings, a.k.a poems and essays, and compiling them into a book. I’ve been doing so for several months now, and I am still in the final editing and decision making stage. This is totally all a self-published, thank you Amazon dealio, but hell it’s worth a shot, right? … More Newsy News News News Newsy News
I’ve spent the last several weeks knowing I had to end my “Friendship” with the man I have been deeply and most emphatically in love with for the past two years. So of course, I’m not in the best head space (to put it mildly). We were never actually friends.

It was just on the edges of town, this plot of land with a white house, surrounded by dense trees. There was a gravel drive, and the cars all parked in a mini parking lot, up against the fence. We kids would run all over, hiding in the trees. Not one inch of that land was … More
Desert Island Discs, the long running BBC radio programme, recently uploaded a tonne of their archived programming from the late 90s till now on to iTunes. I highly recommend the series, which uses a parlour game where one person (in this case, a celeb of some type) chooses eight songs, one book, plus a luxury … More If Kirsty Young Called For Desert Island Discs
