Artists are awesome, awesome people. Creativity runs out of them like rivers and these rivers flow into blogs like multi-disciplined visual arts platform Colossal, thereby creating waterfalls of immensely awesome creativity.

We can get happily lost for ages scrolling through its art, design and photography pages. The guys who curate Colossal leave the blurb brief and let the pictures and videos speak for themselves. We think they may have one of the best jobs in the world.

What’s the thinking behind blog ‘Weird Russia’? Covering an obscure amount of nonsensical Russian news like a bigger, colder, badder Buzzfeed it leaps nimbly from featuring poems written by Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the people of Crimea, to Craigslist personal ads from Yevgeny, Russia’s most eligible hitman bachelor, to videos of roadside rage (gun v. axe).

The ads around the page (Find True Love with Ukraine Woman Dynamic Response. Fast & Secure) only add to the absurdity of this website. Strangely addictive.

Grand Guignol

Straight off we should tell you, Carl Grose’s play Grand Guignol describes itself as ‘a black comedy, a demented, psychological thriller and an unrepentant splatter-fest’ so if you’re sqeamish (screamish) look away now.

Based on a ficticious series of events at the real life horror show that was the Grand Guignol theatre in Paris in 1903, this play tells the story of a psychiatrist’s obsession with the grisly and macabre theatre, and how, in befriending the cast and author of the show, he starts to lose his grip on reality.  Not one for first daters.

23rd Oct – 22nd Nov at the Southwark Playhouse, tickets £18

    Once, not so long ago, our little wedge of London was a scrapbook of slums, rundown factories and destitution.  In fact, Bermondsey has pretty much always been a hotbed of disrepute – home to the most undesirable industries of industrial Britain, with the unfortunate folk to staff them. Anyhow. Now it’s not. There’s something, however, [...] Read More
