The Magic of Amsterdam

Being in a new place seems to be good for the brain. The monotony of your current situation needs to be broken up now and again to add a bit of spice to your life. Many of us never get the opportunity to do this and I am overly grateful for my first ‘proper’ trip to Amsterdam and the first holiday away with the other half.

It was embarrassing to tell people where I was going on holiday because instantly the seedy nature of their brains went to fucking whores and taking drugs. Continue reading The Magic of Amsterdam

My first Muay Thai fight

I started the day focused, listening to my Fight 1 playlist trying to get myself pumped up on the bus. The streets were empty, and again it really did feel like I was alone.

Up and down the Country thousands of men, f ortnightly, take a trip to visit the one man in their life who they know will be there. He didn’t run away. He didn’t leave you when you needed him.

Cultural Appropriation

America has been on a super black bullet train the past few months with Black Lives Matter, police shootings and Kanye West. Race has been a hot topic recently and the black social warriors are aiming their proverbial spears at anything that’s white, has dreadlocks and moves. Cultural appropriation is a sociological concept where members of the dominant culture adopts elements of the minority culture. The minority culture can view these actions by the dominant culture as disrespectful and can be seen as treating what has real cultural significance as fashion or toys.

Rap music influencing life – Quality matters more than content

They try and use rap music as a reason for the violence, but there’s no real evidence which suggests so.
