Published in Planet Written by
  "I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves." Mary Wollstonecraft.   In a time when women are quite literally overwhelmed by (redundant) choice; thrusted at them in the form of hair products, heels and hair removal options, one of the few choices which actually…

The Cult of Celebrity Featured

Published in Alotuvus Written by
It’s a strange one - the way people react to fame - isn’t it? How peculiar it is, that desire to idolise, to hero-worship, to obsess about, to place upon a pedestal and otherwise just generally swoon and croon over the television stars, pop stars, movie stars, sports stars and…

Things that make you go Naaah!

Published in Alotuvus Written by
    As a rule, I’m not the kind of guy who’s easily phased out by every technological innovation that hits the high street and, as is usually the case nowadays, profoundly affects society forever while it’s at it; at least, I’m not that kind of guy so long as…
