WrestleMania 33 – 6th Annual Expert Predictions

April 2, 2017


In a bit of a rush this year, as the magical combination of early morning waking and cross-continent flying (kind of) has left my brain resembling sludge, and I’m not talking Bongripper. By the time you read this WrestleMania 33 will already be underway, so let’s waste no time and get to the 6th annual Expert […]

2014: Albums 10 – 6

December 19, 2014


Lists! Lists! Lists! Here’s a list of albums that I really really liked, but not as much as five other albums. In an actual order as well, excellent. 10: Mono // The Last Dawn/Rays of Darkness If you don’t know what Mono do by now, you never will know. It’s going to be quiet, it’s going to […]

An Illustrated History of Me Not-Vomiting

March 24, 2014


I haven’t been sick in so very long. I was sat in Brod, a pub someway down Bulevar Despota Stefana that has an indie-centric musical leaning. Sometimes this works and you hear Pixies. Sometimes it doesn’t work and you hear Jet. Usually it leans towards the not working with Kaiser Chiefs, Kasabian or something. I […]

March 23, 2014


You mean there is more? Well, like most middle-class white British males born in the 1980s, I play guitar.

March 21, 2014


I’m most definitely pro-noise. A band called Belgrade Noise is quite obviously going to tickle my feathers, and my feathers were tickled pink. Almost unbelievably (but quite obviously true), this was the first time I had seen an actual band at KC Grad. Yes, I saw a French hip-hop duo once, but that doesn’t count […]

Death, Taxes and Rusmir

March 21, 2014


There are certain things in life that are a one hundred percent guarantee. We will all die someday. The sun rises, and the sun sets. Someone will score a hundred at an Adelaide test match. Rusmir will provide excellent food. This final point was confirmed once more today. The walk out to Zemun is a […]

An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery: Slovak Inventors 2/4: Jan Bahyl and Helicopters

March 20, 2014


Who else do we have? Well, there could be Ivan Getting, the son of Slovak immigrants who by realizing that a system of satellite transmitters could inform the location of something on the ground birthed the Global Positioning System (GPS). His first satellites were launched in 1978 and by 1993 the system was fully operational. […]
