Being Anti-Social: a movie-going mission at London Film Festival 2012

The BFI London Film Festival is an incredible excitement-inducing highlight in my calendar.  This year marks its 56th run and appallingly I’ve only been attending the past four.  A pity.  Had I discovered it sooner, I may have been privy to many more (yet to be seen) motion treasures that seem to join a personal film-purgatory; a...

I do not shy away from public transport, on the contrary, the passenger function is clearly alleviated when the assistance of car, tram or bus...
Come and ‘ave a Butchers!

Come and ‘ave a Butchers!

In contrast to a previous article, I now raise the subject of meat, namely the craft of Butchery.  In keeping with our reflections to the past on this site, the butcher counter used to be highly valued outing and the only place to get your choice fowl or a tender t-bone to gnaw through at...
