The saving grace of quarantine

The coronavirus has been quite bad, to put it lightly. It’s brought most of the world to a standstill, wrecked the NHS and caused over 50,000 deaths around the world. Some of the biggest cities have turned into a real-life 28 Days Later, with parts of London and New York being transformed into mobile hospitals to care for those who are ill.

Summer has essentially been cancelled with festivals, sporting events and just about everything else being put off, either until a later date or outright cancelled.

Why Balenciaga and Lonsdale are dominating 2020

I struggled for ages to think of a good blog over the holidays and still couldn’t think of one, until Twitter was exposed to the most questionable fashion release of this decade.

 

Luxury French fashion house Balenciaga has been one of the biggest labels in the world for decades now and has never been afraid to push the boundaries of conventional clothing.

A Critical Analysis of Sean Paul's "We Be Burnin'"

Sean Paul is one of the greatest Jamaican artists currently on the music scene. At the tender age of 46, he is still bringing out bangers, earning a Grammy nomination in 2017 with Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” and three Brit Award nominations in the same year. He is unquestionably one of the biggest Jamaican artists to grace the medium of music.

But, he is not just a fantastic singer, rapper and producer. He is also one of the most unappreciated advocates for the legalisation and decriminalisation of marijuana.

And that is best displayed in his 2005 smash hit “We Be Burnin’”.

The state of football in 2019

Football in 2018 gave us so many highlights. England winning a penalty shoot-out. The emergence of Croatia as a new favourite. Manchester City’s dominance in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho’s near destruction of Manchester United. Kylian Mbappe’s rise to the top.

But 2018 was also awful for the sport.

Where to start? Perhaps, FIFA’s continued support for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and the overall controversy surrounding their decision to award the tournament to a country which has no footballing heritage or pedigree.
