Soul of The Warrior: Hangout with Tim De Cotta

When I was a 13-year-old kid in Saint Joseph's Institution, I met a kid from the class next to mine named Timothy De Cotta. Every recess, we'd be on opposite teams on the street soccer court. In football, Tim was a baby-faced assassin, a gentleman of a player who played his way into the hearts … Continue reading Soul of The Warrior: Hangout with Tim De Cotta

An afternoon with Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus…and some zombies

Andrew Lincoln & Norman Reedus They're two of my favourite actors. One's from London, a serious method actor who I strongly suspect keeps Stanislavski's entire collection in the toilet for jamban┬áreading. He also holds the distinct honour of being the last person to make holding up signs for a girl romantic.

Friday The 13th With Zalora & River Island

Zalora is more than just a couture merchant jacked up on HTML. It was Friday. The 13th. When it isn't being a painfully prolonged horror movie franchise, Friday the 13th plays at the back of our heads as a superstition hailed from a time of witches, where black cats were believed to be malevolent omens … Continue reading Friday The 13th With Zalora & River Island
