When you write for a living...

When you write for a living...

When you write for a living, it’s essential to find other writers with styles you admire and who do things differently. Marina Hyde is on my regular reading list as she marries biting commentary with making essential points, all on very quick deadlines, seemingly effortlessly.

Rarely a column goes by without spotting a lovely turn of phrase (which I often pass on to friends). This interview with Press Gazette comes with a language warning for any children present, but should be essential reading ahead of Marina’s first book coming out. It’s both a great peep behind the curtain on her own writing and very readable in its own right. Marina Hyde interview: Guardian writer on the art of column writing (pressgazette.co.uk)

Honourable mention goes to: Shared pretty widely on social media, by a number of admiring comms pros, this interview by Zoe Broughton is set to grace any number of media training sessions for years to come. A+ technique, no notes.

If you’re on the hunt for new music...

If you’re on the hunt for new music...

If you’re on the hunt for new music, one tune that’s been played on loop in my head over the last week (shout out to my older brother who is my personal A&R man) is Comic Sans by American artists Audrey Nuna and Jack Harlow.

In a massive jump from the usual suspects that see me through – the likes of Patti Smith, The Hollies, and The Doors to name a few – I was drawn into its heady beat that made me feel like I had been dropped back into the dark, sultry corridors of a sticky-floored club.
In all honesty, rap wouldn’t historically be my go-to, but this screams bop, replete with the poppy bubbles of the late, great SOPHIE. Tasty little number to start the weekend. It pulls you into its folds with its 127 BPM and swirling rhyme that make you move along with it even if you aren’t listening. Pour yourself a drink and get it on. Proper tune.

The scandalous press tour of Don’t Worry Darling was nothing short of a PR masterclass...

The scandalous press tour of Don’t Worry Darling was nothing short of a PR masterclass (from a volume standpoint at least). But the resultant whirlwind of discourse around the film was soon quashed by scathing reviews from critics and audience members alike.

So how bad could it be? Turns out, not very! Captivating story, incredible performances (bar Harry Styles), a gorgeous 50s aesthetic, and several plot twists all crammed into a Black Mirror-esque blockbuster – what’s not to like?
Don’t make conclusions from the reviews – go down to the cinema and watch it for yourself, you might even enjoy it!
