A Critical Analysis of Shaggy’s ‘It Wasn’t Me.’

March 6, 2018

  I haven’t written in a while but this has been bugging me for years.  In this blog post I will attempt to discuss how Shaggy’s 2000 hit ‘It Wasn’t Me’ is extremely problematic – not only because of its inherent misogyny, but also, and mostly, its complete lack of logic.  My point is essentially […]

Q & A: The real questions of the day….

January 29, 2018

If you died what would your instructions be? Rena, clear out the middle drawer in my bedroom before anyone can see and scream at my body in the church saying that bit out of My Girl ‘She can’t see without her glasses!’ Also, put googley eyes on my body in the coffin. “What is the […]

November 17, 2017

I know nobody probably cares anyway but there are loads of things I just don’t get.  I just don’t understand and can’t get my head around.  And maybe I’m being a judgemental dick.  Who knows, eh?  Or maybe, just maybe, these are just completely alien concepts to me.  The posts have been serious and the […]

Separating the artist from the art – should we have to do that? How can we do that? Can I even watch TV anymore?

November 10, 2017

    This post is probably going to land me in load of shit, but hey, I’m a woman on the internet so I can’t win anyway, right?  So fuck it – I might as well go all out, eh? Anyway I’ve been thinking about the whole #metoo thing and I’ve come to the conclusion […]

Planning, lessons and being boring.

September 24, 2017

What’s this you say?  Planning you say?  Not impulsively making rash decisions and lying in a pile of crackers in your pants on the bedrooms floor crying because you didn’t consider the consequences, you say?  Not sending incoherent angry drunk texts, you say? Not deliberately self sabotaging things or out trying to get a ride, […]

Every Night They Came

September 19, 2017

By Caroline Egan Published in Phoenix Ink 5 2016 Illustration by Olly Cunningham Every night they came.  Their little feet pattering gently on the laminate flooring, their tiny cold hands pulling at the end of his bed sheets and their barely audible whispers.  Every night he pretended to be asleep, covering his blue eyes with […]
