Music Gigs

It is a well-known fact that I know nothing about Popular Culture.  Geekdom… I’m ok.  Not that geeky, but ok.  The rest… not a clue. This ignorance extends to music. Except perhaps… after barely five years of being a gig lighting designer, turns out I do have a few things that I love.  They’re a […]

Or Don’t?

Walking home a few days ago, and I was a bit of a mess. Firstly: I was knackered.  Just utterly shattered.  It hurt to blink and I kept on catching myself thinking ‘where am I going again?’ even though these were streets I’ve walked down a thousand times. Secondly: I’d had some bad news.  Hopefully […]

All the pink

There was a moment at primary school where I categorically rejected pink.  Pink was a stupid colour.  Pink was the girls’ colour.  Girls who liked to prance around in princess costumes work pink.  Girls who weren’t breathtakingly relieved when the local ballet school burnt down after only one unwelcome class, wore pink. Girls who giggled […]

Into the Badlands Whoopeee!

So in the future, yeah, gunpowder has been outlawed but that’s ok, because Mad Max has learned kung fu in the Thunderdome and Furiosa stole the breeders and… … no, wait, hold on. So in the future, yeah, the crew of Firefly, we’ll they’re sorta trapped in like, this cowboy-esque version of the Divergent books […]

Cry Girl Cry

Two things make me cry.  One is hugely annoying. The first thing that makes me cry is strictly emotional stuff.  Life, death, love.  The Lion King.  Fall of the Berlin Wall.  Man walking on the moon.  Hell – I get choked up when an underdog wins a race, not because I give two monkeys about […]

Oh A General Election Oh Yay

Well isn’t this nice.  Teresa May has called a general election that has nothing whatsoever to do with the timing of a) having invoked Article 50 and b) Labour trailing 20 points behind in the polls.  Nothing at all nononono…. It is almost certain that I am going to get very political in the next […]

Oh Iron Fist

Things I have learned, attempting to watch Iron Fist.  Even Marvel on Netflix can let you down.  Oh Iron Fist.  You were always going to be tricky.  It was always gonna be a tough one.  And you have not risen to the challenge.  Cultural appropriation IS an issue.  Because there’s a difference between going ‘I […]

In Belated Sorta Praise Of… the Matrix (Ole!)

A few weeks ago, I was in a town square in Spain watching the Matrix. The film started at 10.30 p.m., and was watched by about five hundred people, for free as part of the excellent Celcius 232 Festival, on green plastic chairs laid out before an inflatable screen in front of the historic town […]

Missing… gone?

Something is wrong with the spirits of the city.  The creatures that are spawned from the city itself have started… vanishing. It began small.  An imp tribe from a rubbish ground, a dryad from her lamppost, a neonfly hatching ground from the sodium lamps that hugged the edge of the sub-stations.  But then the larger […]

Coming soon…

So, something I’ve been planning for a while is a glossary of urban magic terminology.  Some of which is in the books, some of which isn’t, just to kinda put it out there and generally make this blog, which is about urban magic, more sorta about urban magic.  So, since this is still kinda  a […]
