Becoming an Interfaith Minister

August 1, 2013

As many people know, I have been training part-time towards ordination as an interfaith minister with the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation. I’ve long been both religious and spiritual, and had several experiences in 2008 that motivated me to want to seek some form of ministry to people of all faiths and none, and coincidentally, at […]

There will be no equal pride as long as we are not equal.

July 23, 2013

  A few weeks ago, Channel 4 asked me to participate in their 4Thought programme on being LGBT and Jewish (I’d previously sourced them a friend for a different theme) to coincide with London Pride. I agreed, filmed it, and thought nothing more of it other than “ZOMG, I’m going to be on telly! And […]

I am a gamer who doesn’t game.

July 8, 2013

I am a gamer who doesn’t game. I own a Master System, Mega Drive, Playstation, N64, Playstation 2, Wii, and a Gameboy Colour (I only really got it to play Pokemon). I play games on my PC, phone and tablet. But I don’t really *play* any of them. There’s no time. I only finished Portal […]

April 16, 2013

Because I am not incredibly stupid, I do not intend to comment publicly on the litigation currently being conducted between Peter Reynolds, myself and others. However, as Peter Reynolds’ verbal incontinence is continuing unchecked, I would ask all those who have read his comments about myself and my fellow defendants via CLEAR media channels to […]

Independent bookstores! Yay! …but Wait…

December 10, 2012

I got really excited last weekend on reading Ann Patchett’s story of setting up her own bookshop in Nashville, Tennessee. Parnassus Books is bucking the trend world over of closing book stores, unable to make a profit in the world of ebooks, Amazon, and recession. They’re almost certainly being helped by the celebrity founder being […]

October 29, 2012

So, I had a friend, whom here I shall name Emerson Dakota IX, because it’s my blog and I can. In the summer of 2009, I was in Ireland, learning Ancient Greek (get me), and Emerson was in Sweden, being kinda miserable. To cheer them up, I decided to send them a birthday present. After […]

October 2, 2012

As some of you know, it was Yom Kippur recently, the holiest day of the year in Judaism.  It’s a day you spend sitting in synagogue at one of the five continuous services reflecting on your actions over the past year and trying to ignore the desire to go eat something, or go do anything […]

Tesco Mobile ask you for your Password (and are Rubbish)

September 11, 2012

Let me tell you a story about Tesco Mobile. I recently bought myself a iPhone to mark my graduation into the worst job market in decades, and changed my network to GiffGaff, as my previous provider Tesco Mobile didn’t do unlimited mobile internet, without which there would be little point in having an iPhone. So, […]
