  • Webcurios 01/07/22 - Reading Time: 37 minutes 38 degrees. 38 DEGREES. It’s not ok, is it? Look, ordinarily I would say something ‘funny’ here but, honestly, it’s too hot and I am, for a variety of reasons unconnected to Web Curios and Stuff on the Internet, having a fcuking pig of a week, and so I am just going to leave the…

  • Webcurios 24/06/22 - Reading Time: 26 minutes HELLO! How are you? Oh, that’s right, you’re not here, are you, you fcuks, you’re either in Cannes or at Glastonbury. WELL SEE IF I CARE. (that mention of Cannes has just reminded me of a time a decade or so ago when I was still working at H+K and they were still, inexplicably, letting…

  • Webcurios 17/06/22 - Reading Time: 30 minutes HELLO! Hot, isn’t it? I mean, that’s normal for me, but I imagine those of you currently in HEATWAVE UK will currently all be knotting damp handkerchiefs on your heads and desperately scrabbling down the back of the freezer in search of forgotten Calippos. NOW YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE, JOIN ME IN MY…

  • Webcurios 10/06/22 - Reading Time: 33 minutes Well done! You survived the jubilee! How was it for you? Are you once again replete with patriotism? Do you have any forelock left? Anyway, let’s forget about all that, it was AGES ago and this week has instead been largely occupied (in the UK at least) with that familiar, creeping sensation that I think…

  • Webcurios 03/06/22 - Reading Time: 34 minutes Hello everyone! Hello! I’m back! Did you mi- hang on, there’s noone here. Fcuk. Yes, unfortunately I have rather screwed the timings here – I had totally forgotten that this was JUBILEE WEEKEND, and that therefore the vast majority of you (who as far as I am aware live in the UK and receive this…

  • 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…
