Tip-offs and musical treats are the name of the game with our Top Five Emerging Icons Live... so brace yourselves, new music fans- cos there's some be...
As the crowd gathered outside in the summer sun, I developed a knot in my stomach. It was an exact mix of sci-fi nerds and people with massive grins on their faces expecting a work of ludicrous ironic genius. I have to admit that I had bought tickets in feverish haste as a combination of both of these attitudes but, filing into the theatre, suddenly felt awful.
Minimalism has evolved in the last years from a reaction to Abstract Expressionism to a fusion of different art movements such a Conceptualism and Arte Povera and it is becoming more prominent in the Arts scene.
Well, that is half of the story. RCA fashion graduates did use colour: strategically positioned and very playful. The 90's are back in a more subtle way. To be more specific: the Club-Kids of New York; Brutalist architecture; working class youth culture...
The persistent stereotype of "unfriendliness" toward the English has led me to discover that this is a generalisation because it is also used by the Northern England to describe its Southern counterpart.
Yep, London has its lovers and haters. Maybe you zoom in on the negatives - sardine-like Tube conditions, super-expensive tourist attractions. Maybe you love the buzz of London. You relish the fact that you can go clubbing till 4am on a Monday morning - even if you rarely do.
No, I'm not talking about Kit from Knight Rider here, but the car you drive does actually speak volumes about the kind of person you are. Your tastes, your interests, your profession, it seems strange but your car is almost as good at describing you as you are!
I'd been to foam parties before, but when my friend Ginger Luke said that he and his boyfriend were heading to a naked foam party in London I was intrigued.

The report's message is clear: for London to continue to fuel its own growth and succeed internationally, it needs far greater control over its own destiny. The Commission's chair, Professor Tony Travers of the LSE, notes that only a fraction of the taxes raised in London - just seven percent - is determined by the representatives elected to spend them.
Before starting I want to make clear I am not making these criticisms to attack but for a purpose - so we can develop, understand and tackle the probl...
When my second novel was named "book of the month" by a prestigious literary organisation three years ago, a title previously won by such luminaries a...
When your mum taught you manners, she covered all the basics. No elbows on the table, please, thank you and covering your mouth when you cough. But when it came to teaching drinking etiquette, mine fell short (sorry mum).
With the weather (allegedly) improving, the spring ushers in scores of new cyclists to the city's streets. Cycling is a 'good thing', but with the greater density of cyclists on the road, it can be intimidating for those wanting to give it a go.
A friend of mine tweeted the other day, "Who actually lives in the place where their heroes lived?" To which I replied almost instantaneously, "Me, I have and do!"
This was our first date, arranged via text after a few frivolous emails. I was only on my second online date and already beginning to find such text exchanges wearing. Once the transport-texts have been exchanged, the die is cast, and it's all about first impressions.
