1. Ben Howard covers Keisza’s Hideaway and it is wonderful.


  2. Final exorcised my Beyonce and feminism thoughts. Would love to know yours?

  3. I never really got this song until I saw RiRi do it live. Say what you like about her, she really is quite a great interpreter. There’s a hell of a lot of conviction and heartache on her face here.

  4. Paris through the lens of the legendary Pentax 67.

  5. Got tickets to see Asgeir in Brooklyn for my first night in NYC, which is coincidentally my birthday. Rather excited.

  7. Declan O’Rourke - We didn’t mean to go to sea


  8. Adventure - why we do it.


  9. Sunday observation

    I’ve been thinking a bit today about how much I’m craving headspace.

    I have this persistent desire to find space to explore a bunch of ideas, but I know I don’t have the time to get into them fully, so instead I find myself just dancing around them, keeping them on the backburner - but I can always feel them there.

    I kind of feel like most people spend a large part of their life doing this - dedicating time to the peripheral stuff rather than getting in to the meaty stuff.

    Does anyone else feel this way?

    alimony - From Latin alimonia, “nourishment” or “eating money,” from alere, “to nourish,” and mony, “result, resulting condition,” it first meant “nourishment, support.”

  14. "This is the freedom fight of the children of globalisation, who have come through a world recession to find that the promises of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, declared in the austere 1940s, have yet to be made real for millions of girls even in the more affluent world of 2014." I feel like Gordon Brown is ignoring the fact that affluence in the 2014 is reliant on children, girls, and the less visible and wealthy in the developing world being exploited. Our affluence, and their marginalisation and inability to access “universal human rights” are two sides of the same coin.
  15. Divine. Booked tickets to go see this wonderful musician play.
