Lanie Lane – ‘Ain’t Hungry’ 2011 has seen me discover a number of female blues and soul singers, but I would have to say that Lanie Lane’s ‘Ain’t Hungry’ just edges ahead of the pack in terms of my favourite such song (and indeed, any song) for the year. This all-too-short track was produced by…

interview: easy star all-stars

No comments

Being in a cover band doesn’t tend to net you a whole lot of “real” fans. Altogether reinterpreting classic songs is perhaps an even greater risk, it is one that the New York City-based reggae collective, Easy Star All-Stars, has undertaken with passion, love, and success to boot. Easy Star All-Stars have indeed become best…

Most recently, she has gotten engaged – something we can only assume at present to be good…

A few days ago, a friend correctly assumed that I would enjoy reading this, documenting a neurotic email sent by a NY banker to a woman with whom he went on one date. Even if you’re the slowest reader in the world, I assure you that reading said email is time well spent, but here…

on writing (for lip)

No comments

At some point in my quest to be a “writer”, I became certain that editors hated me. Looking back, there is little grounding for this, except having heard hoards of stories about cruel rejection letters and cliquey types who would only publish the work of those within a/the literary canon and/or their friends (which are…

The laws of operant conditioning and its methods of shaping behaviour have been applied to numerous situations and purposes in our ever-changing world since the reward/punishment model was pioneered by Burrhus Frederic Skinner many moons ago. One such situation is the quest to find a romantic partner – a task that continues to be one…

(sex)uality: first time sex and the pressure for perfection

A couple of weeks ago, I was at a friend’s place and decided to mosey on over to his shelves of DVDs and find something to entertain me while he cleaned. After a ridiculous amount of time spent trying to decide what to watch, I settled on season one of an old favourite, The OC….

why having a boyfriend has made me a better feminist

Recently, I was slut-shamed. I was slut-shamed by someone whose facebook comments I questioned when they showed ignorance or a fundamental misunderstanding of the inequality that has propelled feminism, and he predictably got sick of me taking issue with the things he was saying, and deleted me on facebook. When a friend jokingly asked him…
