Talk Me Down (3/3)...


Here we are. The finale of the Blue Neightbourhood Trilogy, which had put a lot of heavy emotions into my mind. Some parts made me smile, some made me laugh, and others made me almost cry.

Being gay in modern society is not easy, unless you are really lucky. This video represents the truest of struggles for gays. It reaches deep into my heart. Thank you Troye x

Wild (1/3)...


Has any of you guys heard of Troye Sivan? If not, here's a TREAT for you all for the start of 2017! I 'discovered' Troye when one of his songs (I believe it's Youth) was playing in the background of a shop and I was immediately struck by how beautifully simplistic his sound is. Of course I went straight to iTunes and bought his whole debut album Blue Neighbourhood and listened to it for hours.

Age 21, Troye Sivan is a singer, songwriter, actor and vlogger from Australia, but born in South Africa. He's rapidly turning into the next big thing with the release of the so called Blue Neighbourhood Trilogy, which touches upon growing up, coming out, family relations, disapproving and aggressive parents, denial, true love and suicide. At the same time, it also tells a story that has been in our collective culture for far too long, and frankly Troye nailed it, beautifully. What an elegiac expression of the modern homophobic society.

Seriously, if you have 12 minutes of your precious time spare, it's definitely worth it!

Happy 2017...

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Has everyone recovered from the booze and parties? I certainly did! This year I went down to Bridport, Dorset, to celebrate New Year's Eve with a friend in a fancy dress street party! As you can see, I was a BIG banana and I was sure I had poked a few gladiators and superheros in the town square =P
