On Social Gambling

When social media took the world by storm, experts were divided on its potential effects. Some said it would bring the unnecessary exposure of private information, some said it would take up too much of our time and make us unproductive, while most agreed with the statement that despite all of social media’s flaws, “In 2020, when I look at the big picture and consider my personal friendships, marriage and other relationships, I see that the Internet has mostly been a positive force on my social world. And this will only grow more true in the future. ” By...

Passing By

“Passing by” is a revival production by Martin Sherman, and it is about relationship. It could be stressed that it is about a gay relationship, but I guess this would reduce everything into a label that is far from what it really is. Andrew Keates, the director, chooses to put emphasis on the simplicity of the setting, as it is a common flat in New York, and on the vulnerability of the human race when faced by getting together and recovering from sickness.

Personally it reminds me of one of those things that you find in a sewing kit to thread a needle, but then that’s because I’ve always been looking up at it. Until yesterday …and after slightly more queuing than i enjoy (apparently people were so excited they were turning up early, putting pressure on the half hour time-slot bookings) …past pictures of famous people in mashed up London scenes, the inevitable security, and the slightly...

The Very Antithesis of Sober

When I woke up this morning I thought I might be coming down with a cold. I had a scratchy throat, my joints were aching and it took much longer than it should have done to drag myself out of bed, but my autumn chill would have to wait – I had places to go, people to see, a whole festival of rum was awaiting me… My sniffles evaporated from the very first sip; a cheeky five-year old Barbadian rum served with a smile by a slick floral-shirted barman at the Tiki bar. Then a Plantation Mai Tai [i] from Trinidad brought memories of summer...
