Not Running Music

Some point last year I went running with a couple of albums and really enjoyed the experience, so much so that I intended on starting a segment called Soundtrack to… where I would pair up albums with particular runs as if I were pairing an entrée with wine. This didn’t last long, mostly because soon… Continue reading Not Running Music

Soundtrack to a sunny Sunday run.

The first soundtrack to… post that I did (last week, here) was inspired in concept, whilst the actual album was from my own reservoirs of inspiration. This week, as I excitedly delve into more and more albums whilst I run (also more and more), the listen is externally inspired. James Acaster is a comedian who… Continue reading Soundtrack to a sunny Sunday run.

Soundtrack to an Easy Day with Nick and George

Inspired by the Running Punk (Jimmy Watkins) and his energetic on-the-run reviews of high volume acts such as Run the Jewels, IDLES, and Every Time I Die, I decided that on my next run I would vow to ditch the playlist, dodge the podcast, and commit to running with a full album.  Thing is, it… Continue reading Soundtrack to an Easy Day with Nick and George

Sunday Stuff (Disappearing Earth/ Hyper Light Drifter/ Leon Bridges)

Photo by Tim Tiedemann on Unsplash I'm not really a cold weather kind of guy, but there is something about a crisp but clear, ice cold blue morning in the middle of January. It's supposed to be a dreary, long month, but so far I'm actually enjoying it, thanks in no part to my continued routine of getting… Continue reading Sunday Stuff (Disappearing Earth/ Hyper Light Drifter/ Leon Bridges)

Sunday Morning Stuff (4th of July Creek/ Forza Horizon 4/ The Rise of Skywalker)

New year. New Sunday. Same stuff. No. Wait. NOT the same stuff. Different stuff. 2020 stuff. Well, not yet. There’s still plenty of stuff that I missed from last year that I’ve still got to get through. Let’s take a look at what’s been keeping me going over the festive period. Reading... I’ve been working… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff (4th of July Creek/ Forza Horizon 4/ The Rise of Skywalker)

List of Six: My Albums of 2019

Here’s a wild concept for you: a list on the internet. Something different for this end of season Sunday. A list of six albums, in no particular order, of albums that really floated my boat and buttered my toast in 2019, records which defined this chaotic year, and that will remain with me for years… Continue reading List of Six: My Albums of 2019

Sunday Morning Stuff 01/12

Photo by Caroline Hernandez on Unsplash Ho ho ho, let’s go go go and look at another week full of pop culture and books and games and all kinds of nice stuff. It’s the first of that magical month of December. Sick of it all yet? Have you already heard Last Christmas 87 times? Are you wishing for… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff 01/12

Sunday Morning Stuff 10/11

Two Sunday's in a row I've had no work so I'm once again coming to you live from my post-run Sunday seat, rattling out a steady stream of stuff that I've enjoyed, so that now you can too! Second hand books, RPG's, grimy rap, experimental pop, big budget TV, independent film... What more do you… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff 10/11

Sunday Morning Stuff 03/11

Today has the potential to be the perfect Sunday. No work. A long run. Several cups of tea, some reading, perhaps (read: definitely) a little Dragon Quest XI. OH! And how could I forget... Sunday Morning Stuff. Let's get into it. Reading... With Halloween out of the way and my classical gauntlet of picks in… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff 03/11

Sunday Morning Stuff 27/10

The end of October looms large, November in-waiting like a grim vanguard of the Christmas season, here all too soon...but there is nothing to be done. Nothing. Halloween hardly stems the tide of Xmas nonsense but once it is gone nothing stands in the way of St Nicholas. BUT October and November are often good… Continue reading Sunday Morning Stuff 27/10
