Have You Tried Listening?

We live in a time where people are so easy to be offended, and a lot of the time it’s for the most innocuous and ridiculous thing…

“You can’t say that!… That’s offensive… That’s racist… No I’m not black, but my next door neighbour is and I feel offended on their behalf… No, my next door neighbour is not here, but if he were…”

Mate, shut up! I’m not saying that we should all go around shouting out negative terms, but all I’m asking is to have some common sense and use your brain. As people get more easily offended by the

Nathan helps his grandma solve the youthful millennial problems of today (and at times has to hold her back from dishing out some good ol’ fashioned licks!).

We’ve Got Our Streets Back!

So yesterday morning I woke up, showered, had my usual breakfast of porridge and a banana… You know, the gangsta shit! Then I took what I anticipated to be a journey full of noise to my local high street to pick up a few bits and bobs… But to my surprise, when walking down the street and through the park that I normally use as a shortcut, there wasn’t the off-putting noise that I had been anticipating.
