Consumed the week of 27 May and 3 June, 2019

Missed last week because I was away on holiday (in Turkey – here’s my favourite fact about Turkey) celebrating my birthday. Safely back in SE London now, and this is going to be a quick one because I’m tired and there’s plenty of TV to catch up on. Above: Something that the YouTube algorithm pushed […]

Consumed the week of 20 May, 2019

Late this week, because it was a bank holiday and it was a busy…ish one. On Friday I went to All Points East over in Victoria Park to see (among others) Chemical Brothers (above), Hot Chip, Peggy Gou, and Maurice Fulton. It was very good, so good that I had to spend most of Saturday […]

Consumed the week of 13 May, 2019

I haven’t done an awful lot of reading this week. To be fair, I haven’t done an awful lot of reading this year. Definitely not compared to last year. I have been listening to a lot more music however. I spent a bit of money getting myself a new turntable, amp and speakers earlier this […]

Consumed the week of 6 May, 2019

Above: an interesting 20 minute documentary about Subvertisers for London, found via the brilliant Spelling Mistakes Cost Lives. The other video which really stayed with me this week (and may have made me cry a little bit), is How Autism Feels, From the Inside from the NY Times: A couple of ‘How…’ articles this week. […]

Consumed the week of 29 April, 2019

I watched Avengers: Endgame this week. I enjoyed it a lot. Not ‘five stars’ as a few critics have said, but definitely four. There were more than a few think pieces around this week, as that Game of Thrones episode aired in the same week. This was the best of them I think, but even […]

Consumed the week of April 22, 2019

I finished Jenny Odell’s brilliant book, How To Do Nothing, this week. It’s phenomenal. I absolutely loved it, it’s message is simple and powerful and I have no doubt it will be one of my favourite books of the year. And then I sat down to write this blog post and my first thought was […]

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rob Hinchcliffe (@hinchcliffe) on Apr 21, 2019 at 5:19am PDT Slightly late update this week because of the bank holiday. We had a slightly extended break, as we went to Seville over Easter. When we booked it we didn’t realise that ‘holy week’ in Seville is […]

Consumed the week of April 8, 2019

This week has mostly been about this weekend, and three very different events. The first was a trip to Alexandra Palace on Friday night to see the amazing Robyn. I’ve been looking forward to this for a while and Robyn didn’t disappoint. In fact she exceeded expectations. Here’s a clip from Twitter of me, plus […]

Consumed the weeks of 18 March and 25 April

Been stuck in a slight rut recently, that’s why no week notes last week. I finished the book I was reading: The Night Ocean by Paul La Farge and even though I quite enjoyed the first 100 pages, it was a slog to get to the finish and there’s nothing like a dispiriting read to […]

Consumed the week of 18 March, 2019

10am @vampireweekend gigs 😍 at @Islington_AH! pic.twitter.com/X2gKSJJBIY — O2 Academy Brixton (@O2academybrix) March 23, 2019 Definitely my highlight of the week was the Vampire Weekend ‘breakfast gig’ at 10am Saturday morning at Islington Assembly Hall. I was pretty hungover from the end of a slightly rough work week, but the gig was tremendous. Here they […]
