  • Webcurios 13/05/22 - Reading Time: 36 minutes Hello, Internet Fans! Hello! Are you well? Are you thriving? I do hope none of you have been burned in the great crypto crash of May 2022 and that your apes are all safe (lol). Summer is starting to kick in here in Rome, meaning that I’m once again slowly getting used to the light…

  • Webcurios 06/05/22 - Reading Time: 34 minutes I don’t know about you, but this week I have been attempting to distract myself from The Bad Stuff by imagining what it must be like to be former tennis champion and all-round famous German Boris Becker, now doing bird in HMP Wandsworth. Do you reckon Boris is a dab hand at table tennis? Do…

  • Webcurios 29/04/22 - Reading Time: 37 minutes HI EVERYONE HI HAPPY FRIDAY! Are you excited about the imminent long weekend? Do you have plans? Will there be a barbecue? Maybe a party? Maybe a club? Well screw all of you with your ‘friends’ and your ‘fun’, as I don’t get to do any of that – instead my weekend excitement probably peaked at…

  • Webcurios 22/04/22 - Reading Time: 37 minutes Hi! Hello! Welcome, once again, to Web Curios, your weekly compendium of ‘stuff some bloke you probably don’t know and whose opinion you have no real reason to trust has found online and deemed interesting enough to share with YOU, a small audience of strangers whose masochism I can only imagine’. Whilst I would love…

  • Webcurios 15/04/22 - Reading Time: 35 minutes Well what an unexpected pleasure this is! Ordinarily I don’t do a Curios on Good Friday, what with it being a Bank Holiday in the UK and therefore you all having better things to do than kill a few hours reading this rubbish. This year, though, my life is so oddly-small and peculiarly-focused that I…

  • Webcurios 08/04/22 - Reading Time: 38 minutes Hello! Hello! Hi! Well I had a lovely week off, not least because so doing meant that I got to avoid both The Slap and April Fools (but mainly because I got to see my girlfriend and have conversations longer than 30 seconds at a time). As such, I like to think I’ve returned to…

  • Webcurios 25/03/22 - Reading Time: 37 minutes Those of you reading Curios in the UK are still likely reeling from the staggering realisation that the Conservative chancellor who’s married to the child of a literal billionaire doesn’t perhaps give a flying fcuk about the lives of the poor! I know, I was shocked too! Those of you reading elsewhere will likely have…

  • Webcurios 18/03/22 - Reading Time: 33 minutes Have you had a bad week? Has it been trying, grinding, wearing and soul-scouring? Do you need a pick-me-up, something to leaven the spirits and the soul, and lighten the ever-more-burdensome existential load of being made of meat here in the early days of the fag-end of human civilisation? Yeah, sorry, me too, I got…

  • Webcurios 11/03/22 - Reading Time: 35 minutes Whilst on the one hand it’s good to see that one or two of the iffily-plutocratic Russians who’ve spent much of the past three decades effectively buying Kensington brick-by-brick are now being scrutinised, it’s also fair to say that a) this should possibly have happened a while ago; b) this doesn’t in any way remove…

  • Webcurios 04/03/22 - Reading Time: 33 minutes Yes, well, the news, blimey. Per last week, Curios is eschewing warcommentary and warchat – you know where to get news, comment, opinion and asinine, performative takes on current affairs should you so desire them – here it’s just links and distractions til the end times come (how is the clock looking?). So instead, let…
