Year 2021.. Or so it begins
-scene- Year 2021 The world is a different place. A place of Cultural creators. Cultural tasters. Cultural dictators. Where it is your link to belief that assigns where you reside. Where birth-right is the only thing that is certain and right. No more mobility. No more integrating. No trust. No hope. In short the world [...]
#NaBloPoMo #29: Poetic Greed, my chained thoughts are not free..
Interesting meeting with a man today. Reminded continually of the frailty in essence of the existence of 'the' human condition. How existence is a personal experience, felt, reflected and renegotiated individually in the midst, in the bosom of society and culture. All guarded I was, Sat serene, unsure as you buzzed, My mentality a little [...]
NaBloPoMo #22: Productive Day of Procrastination
So rather than going to the gym, doing my readings and then writing up some notes for my first meeting with my supervisor tomorrow.. I have had a productive day of procrastination strategies, that have ultimately proved fruitful. Firstly I finally got back onto a console to play a game, as I babysat my nephew [...]
#NaBloPoMo #9: MA Thesis Idea #1
I thought I would share the more academic way, in an attempt to get these thoughts that occur to me. Thoughts surrounding the world we live in from a cultural and sociological viewpoint. I also hope that by doing this I add extra fuel to the fires within me. Fires which at times seem to [...]
#NaBloPoMo #7: Masculinity
For making Saag Paranthas when mum got sectioned, For letting my small legs dance and showering us with affection, For the long walks to get us out of the house, For helping us all get rid of that pesky mouse, For doing the world of a couple alone, For keeping everything light and together at [...]
Default Man – Default Me?
So I've been debating since midnight whether or not to post this. I mean I'm trying to be disciplined and post something up everyday. If only to prove to myself that I can. But, at the same time I know I'm going to have to run a longer, further, probably even several articles to explain [...]
‘Does Page 3 Make the World a Better Place?’
I found myself rushing from the Spirit Level of the Southbank Centre on the second day of their WOW - Women of the World Festival 2014 to make the Page 3 panel talk. Slightly annoyed that I would be missing out on the 'Art Will Change the World' talk, but boy was I glad that [...]
MDX LGBT Society Talk About their Film Awareness Video
Collating my work for the blog. It seems so long ago that I was at Middlesex with a entire gang of guys, gals and in-betweens who enjoyed engaging with the university life. As well as having a sense of ownership of the atrium spaces in the Grove. Beautiful place to film within, it really should feature more in productions.
Sometimes the best events come from the simplest of ideas.
Ahead of the North London Literary festival, Middlesex students are hard at work at many creative endeavours. Though we hunger for news on the highly anticipated app, other creative committees and students are conducting their events earlier in more public forums.
On the 1st of February, a few intrepid equality and liberation activists or in other-words Middlesex University’s LGBT Society (MDX LGBT) banded together to create a Campaign Video.
I, the secretary of MDX LGBT, caught up with the President and Treasurer to find out more about why and how the video was created as well as their future aspirations for the Middlesex Society.
I am joined by Peter Dillon, 20, the President of MDX LGBT and Tom Stock, 26, the Treasurer of MDX LGBT, who share their views and journey on leaving a lasting legacy.

Having always wanted to see a Shakespeare Production at The Globe theatre, I was a bit disheartened by this production at a small theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue. However as with all my pre-conceptions I should not have wasted an ounce of worry. Not only was Stephen Fry playing a whimsical Malvolio, with his luxurious voice [...]
