    When Hiring A Millennial, Think About These Things

    RE: Hiring The Cultural Creative – What Other Motivations? Being part of the often-tagged ‘Millenial’ generation, more often than not we are told that we have extremely low attention spans, show little workplace loyalty, we are aesthetically and therefore (logic-falsely) materialistically driven; and are harder to keep within a market segment as we are constantly […]

    Before + After Pics Are Harmful. Stop Adding To Them.

    The media: you’re guilty. You posit campaigns like #likeagirl – and then feed audiences images that destroy their sense of self worth. Red circles drawn around cellulite: the lifeblood of Heat magazine for years. Before and After Culture is toxic to self worth Or worse – you print page after page of the dreaded before-and-after […]

    Oh no! Renee Zellwegger Aged Because She Got Older.

    I wish the Daily Mail would calm the fuck down. “OH GOD IT’S LIKE SHE HAS A DIFFERENT FACE!!!!” becries almost every syndicated blog ever in the last 6 hours. In a wave of credible journalism everywhere, the Western world has decided to go shitbonkers for the fact that R-Zellz opted to go for the old […]

    Motivation: Don’t give up. REJECTION LETTERS OF THE GREATS

    There are so many reasons not to give up, and I love finding snippets of inspiration that boost the next say, hour or so of work. The internet makes that search so much easier. Schadenfreude is one word. Akin to, maybe how taking-pleasure-in-the-underdog-winning-like-a-champ is also a word… somewhere… that I don’t know yet, and would very […]

    Hidden Gems of the UK: OXFAM ORIGINALS

    Tucked away between the muso-makkah Piccadilly Records; Wood, Carhartt and opposite some of the city’s hippest cafes: Night & Day, Fig & Sparrow and Pop. “Forget Market Street, visit Oldham Street (and the rest of the Northern Quarter) instead! Much more interesting and exciting.” Ah, Trip Advisor reviews – so true. Oldham Street is where you need […]

    Good Morning! It’s a new year! A clean start! Wake up! Brush your teeth, have a fresh cuppa! There’s nothing like that first gulp of air when you wake up on the 1st January, hungover or not. …Because it’s the time of year where we all begin with good intentions, get healthy, make ourselves all good […]

  • IMPRISONED FOR POSTING ON FACEBOOK: SAVE JABEUR

    Something that drives modern society is the Top Dog mentality: that one has to domineer above all others. An interesting by-product from this obsession of power, alongside the people left to eat dust at the kerbs, the propagation of individualism…. is censorship. It’s a mess, it’s frustrating, but because, out of millions of Facebook users, […]
