The US Election Will Be 2016’s Most Popular Fiction Piece

You do not have to declare yourself a die-hard film fan, or even a Die Hard fan, to be fully acquainted with this year’s record-breaking blockbuster. Research by the Center For Responsive Politics (CRP) estimated in October that this year’s election would top a record breaking £6.6 billion, with Clinton and Trump alone – at that point…

What Is PMDD?

Here I am, in a Carcraft car park, somewhere off the M56. I am not entirely sure of how I got here. All I know is that somewhere along the familiar journey from Liverpool to Wales, returning home for a family sojourn I distractedly missed a turn off, and the rest unravelled from there. I…

It Could Be Rotterdam Or Anywhere

As GVmag, we were often labelled anti-Liverpool, a tradition we’re set to keep up with Managed Decline. Except for Anti-Liverpool is the wrong term, isn’t it? It’s fierce pride, manifested in a want for improvements rather than simply tattooing a Liverbird on to a sagging left breast and harking back to past glories. It’s accepting…

The 800lb Gorilla

I love art. When I arrive in a new city, I check the shower works in my hotel and bin the piss-poor Twinings tea by the kettle. Then, I find out where the nearest gallery is. I’ve spent a whole day checking out The Prado in Madrid, marvelling at a variety of pictures; generally only…

Is It Time To Boycott The Liverpool Echo?

While the press in the UK is free from government interference, it’s become increasingly controlled by a small number of shadowy politically motivated individuals, the kind who would rather you gawped at a giant mechanical spider, than wonder what else they could’ve spent that money on. The city’s local tabloid is the Liverpool Echo. On…

Throw Down Your Vaginas

I’d never considered myself a sexist, until the church of mainstream opinion decided that I was.  My actions were condemned by ruthless authoritarian activists – the modern thought police – who wear their politics like a thorny crown atop their Twitter bios: “feminist.” It’s a rather curious tale of what happens when identity politics get…

Like Morrissey, if he let himself go.

Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle

I’d be remissed if I failed to admit, I feel under-qualified to write about comedian Stewart Lee. Perhaps best described as, the Morrissey of comedy, (not just because of his analogous ressemblance to the mopey musician) with his acerbic wit and intelligence, It feels as though only Stewart Lee himself, possesses the lexicon to provide…

The Wolf Among Us Episode 2

Hello again, time to talk about episode 2. First things first, the minor problem with the frame rate is still there. To be honest it’ll probably stay too but it still wasn’t big deal. Second thing second, this will be shorter that episode 1’s review because you don’t want to re read all that guff…

Footballer Has Opinion

I’d been largely bored of Adolf Anelka-gate despite how the outrage spun over from the terraces to the media, to politicians and back again like a disapproving whirlwind. Now the French comedian involved, Dieudonné M’bala M’bala is banned from entering the UK. What exactly are we being protected from? Am sure most football fans had no idea…
