    Film Costume Nerdery 2

    See my previous Film Costume Nerdery post here. When I was a teenager, I loved the Rocky Horror Picture Show. In high school, my friends and I would turn up at the cinema, Saturday night at midnight, sometimes dressed up, sometimes not, sometimes with our rice and water pistols, sometimes not, always ready to dance […]

    Film Costume Nerdery

    Film Costume Nerdery 2 is here. Several months ago I started a few projects making outfits or items of clothing that I could wear that were replicas of or inspired by costumes from films.

    Strong, not skinny.

    This morning I woke up to see yet another woman being attacked with horrendous abuse and rape threats on Twitter. My first reaction was despair. “Not again. Will this never stop?” Before I made myself feel defeated by ignorant morons, I got down on my floor and did some push-ups. I ended up doing 100, […]

    Jocelyn Bell Burnell

    Thank you to everyone who voted for Jocelyn Bell Burnell’s discovery of pulsars in the Great British Innovation vote. She came #4. Amazing! Several weeks ago Roger Highfield from the London Science Museum got in touch with me to ask if I’d like to take part in the Great British Innovation vote. He sent me […]

I am socially awkward.

The other week I went out for lunch with a friend of mine. He and I worked together a few years ago (when I say “worked together” I mean “I did the web stuff for a film he wrote“). During the time we were working together we’d have almost daily, long, in-depth conversations about belief, […]
