Comments Off on COOL: First dates / UNCOOL: Michel Roux Jnr

Last week a friend introduced me to First Dates… Why I wasn’t watching it before is a mystery. I think I heard about it and assumed it was scripted!? If there’s one thing that makes my chin twitch it’s actors playing awkward, nervous people looking for love. That’s what reality TV’s there for guys! And […]

Comments Off on UNCOOL: SAGA (you kill me Saga)

Eight episodes in, 20 murders still unsolved, and I couldn’t give a septic toss  who done it… I’m far more interested in Saga. These days, most nights, I’m pulling my hair out  shouting at the telly: “SAGA. WHAT IN DESIGNER DANISH FURNITURE’S FANNY IS WRONG WITH YOU?????????” She’s the most interesting, sociopathic female detective on […]

Why has Dappy’s violent sexist behaviour towards Luisa Zissman been brushed under the carpet? … and who with a milimeter of sense calls their kid Dappy anyway? Why not – SEXisty? Or – Stoopidy?  Or Crybaby?  Whoever the illusive naming genius is, you better be careful not to bring her up in conversation unless you […]

UNCOOL: You Kanye West. You.

November 28, 2013 by


In this topsy turvy old world where people post pics of their newborns still slathered in uterus goo, thankfully there is still cool to be found in pretty much everything and everyone. Even Leicester Square. But not Kanye West. In an inevitable twist of showbiz fate, the next lunatic to join 50 cent, unpaid internships […]

UNCOOL: Unpaid Internships. Does passion mean a job?

October 25, 2013 by


Is it about the money? Of course not. It’s about making it count. But if you don’t feel  encouraged, inspired or in lots of cases, welcome – making it count is pretty hard to do. Passion may have got some unpaid interns entry-level jobs a few years ago, but it doesn’t anymore.  Maybe because working […]

UNCOOL: Linking your running app to Facebook

August 21, 2013 by


We all like a bit of recognition for hard work… For example, raising money for charity – that’s GREAT! Everyone should know about that. Or, finally getting the job you deserve after years and years climbing the shit-stained ranks. I can absollllllutely understand why anyone would feel the urge to get up on a rooftop […]

UNCOOL: small plates

July 25, 2013 by


For the love of elbow room, I can’t do this anymore. If I walk into one more distressed-wood-furnished, naked-lightbulbed, glass-tumblered, formica-loving concept restaurant and walk out hungrier than when I entered, I’m going to move back to Finchley. Because in Finchley everything is served on big plates. Honestly, they’re huge. But in the capital’s gentrified […]

UNCOOL: plucking a grey hair from a strange woman’s chin

May 23, 2013 by


Journalist & Author Katy Regan regales us with an #UNCOOL tale of how one man  destroyed  a perfectly sunny day. I have always been proud of my status as ‘non-high-maintenance-chick’. I am a five secs in the shower and out, kind of girl; I do my mascara on the toilet; I think grey roots make […]
