Day 2: Karma.

Had a weird moment today when I realised I’ve started my daily blog earlier in life than Richard Herring… so all I need to do is outlive him and I’ve got the record for the longest running daily blog by a comedian. So at least my headstone and eulogy will have something in it. I […]

To Taylor, With Love

This morning Taylor Swift published an open letter to Apple about their music streaming service.
