Writing about web page http://www.idler.co.uk
Stumbled upon this completely at random during a slow day at work. Not really had time to get to grips with it fully yet, but have a look: it’s crying out as an untapped resource for people who like setting aside a sizeable chunk of their day to be placid and do very little. So basically, students (What? Some stereotypes are there to be perpetuated – it’s a vicious cycle). Especially if you’re a student who has enough time to be looking at this blog.
It’s an online magazine, with some nice articles, interviews (including one with Michael Palin) and a random spread of interesting, idler-friendly events, all of which is distinctly UK in flavour (it always goes down smooth).
Go forth, and idle.

Those in and around London who are partial to a bit of theatre might want to check out Brixton Stories, which has just recently started at the Lyric in Hammersmith:
“Witness a world of word-mongers, soap-box philosophers and preachers through the eyes of Ossie Jones and his daughter as they walk through the streets of Brixton. As Ossie comes to terms with the loss of his wife, and his daughter searches to find her father again, Bandele weaves fantasy and reality together to take you on this magical and enchanting journey.”
This is a stage adaptation of Biyi Bandele’s magic realist novel, which he himself is directing. Whether you’ve read the novel or not (I haven’t), it definitely sounds interesting!
