What I’m listening to: Damian Lazarus’ Lazpod podcast is easy to listen to while working. The best place to find this guy’s recordings is SoundCloud – he has a great eclectic style.

What I’m reading: I’m a huge George Orwell fan and have been devouring his books and essays. I was slightly disappointed with Coming Up for Air [but] I have moved on to Homage to Catalonia, about his experience in the Spanish civil war fighting the fascists. It’s amazing how current so many of his ideas seem.

What I’m watching: I’m watching The Blacklist, but only because of the inimitable James Spader. The rest of the show is pretty poor, but it helps pass the time while I’m waiting for the next instalments of House of Cards and Game of Thrones.

What artists I’m following: The last exhibition I saw was a couple of months back at the Tate Modern involving Kazimir Malevich, the father of modernism in Russia, which was showing alongside an exhibition of Matisse’s cut-outs.

Where I’m surfing: Volklore.com (because it’s mine!), Lazyoaf.com (run by a friend from university), Haw-lin.com (which is hipster s*** but has some cool images), Hypebeast.com (I sell my clothes here) and www.reddit.com/live/ tni9l91oob8x (for updates on Occupy Central).
