5-HTP and Me

Relationships are fleeting, friendship is the new family. New faces are hard to come by, joy is a slight grasp of air. Hangovers can feel pointless unless the misery is shared. Fun can be hard to find when you're locked inside your own mind. Locked inside four walls with the meta and real. It's too … Continue reading 5-HTP and Me

Where do you wake up?

Walking around Manchester at 5am Sunday morning I figured I'd do something unusually productive and take some pictures using my Minolta camera with Kodak ISO 400 film.

On the upside, the beer is great, the people speak English and thanks to … Continue reading I accidentally strolled into a brutal BEATDOWN gig in Manchester
