Boy or girl. Indeterminate age. It is a useful name to cover all sins and indiscretions.
I like reading, writing, walking – all the basic CV fillers.
I like chocolate and quality coffee.
I love my Moleskine and fountain pen.*
And do not separate myself from music.
*She’s called Eve, like my first computer and for an identical reason. She’s nearly as old as I am (indeterminate). You may one day see her handiwork here…

I’m on a Journey, though I don’t know where I’m going along the way any more than I know where it will end. I do know that it will be a magical flight of whim and fancy that transcends the need for perfect English: so join me as I flit back and forth. Maybe you’ll learn a thing or two, maybe you’ll shake your head in shame, and most likely from time to time you’ll scratch your head as you read backwards, count forwards and generally wonder what the hell is going on.
Incidentally if you’re wondering about the picture this is where you’ll find me when it invariably all goes tits up. To my knowledge only three other people know the exact location, two of which you would probably have to pay to get them to show you. The other one wouldn’t try and bring me home.
Nothing clever about me but loads of genius all around me – and you. Look, listen, touch, smell, taste, then use your talents as you should – you’ll do some bad and you’ll do some good – because you’re human?

Harlan Thoroughgood is a one-time City Journalist’s Triangle Award Winner, two-time recovering-alcoholic, and has been arrested three times for peaceful protests. Having been raised in front of a television which ran endless Marx Brothers comedies, he developed a rather skewed – if decidedly libertarian – perspective on how society should be run. He is relentless in his belief that the only way to stop tomorrow’s atrocities is to make everyone as aware of the injustices of today, and angry enough to do something about it. At the end of the day he can be found in his local pub, annoying everyone with his singing on the karaoke machine.
Morgan Pearce is the long-term editor-in-chief of The Circadian Atlas, which has bucked the trend of decreasing print-circulation despite making their online presence universally accessible.
Craig Forshaw is the liaison for both Harlan and Morgan in our own reality, and edits every column for clarity. He enjoys Italian horror movies, the writings of Robert Anton Wilson, and making sure everyone knows he isn’t a witch.
Hello! I’m Hugin and I can probably sum myself up in two words: “Viking” and “Jacobite”. Strange combination? Yes, I know, but it really works – as anyone who knows me will confirm! But as well as all that, I like writing, music, drama and weasels. I also have a red panda puppet who is very precious to me (gollum, gollum).
In the city that never sleeps there is one man who dreams enough for all the people.

I often criticise myself for not being artistic enough. I read almost exclusively non-fiction. I am a scientist (of sorts). I often read books that deconstruct love, emotions and subjectivity. But I have had enough! I have had enough of the cynicism and world weariness that seems to surround us. I see inspiration and beauty all around me because I choose to see it. In fact I need to see it. And I see absurdity. I love laughing at the world and the way it can be just so comical and silly. I love humans – I love their flaws and their complexities. I worry that too much effort is made to strip them of this. I want to reconnect with the subjective, naive experience of being human. Writing has always been an outlet for me and I am really excited about using this wonderful website as a forum to express ideas, stories that pop into my head, music and film that inspires me and things that make me chuckle. And maybe more. Who knows?
Amorphous jellyfish ideas, tendrils of thought drifting through your mind and settling, noose-like, around your intelligence receptors.
Ideas and observation are my life, chronicling them my quest, immortality through words the goal.
I like people. I sometimes despise people. I love this world, yet it sometimes fills me with anger, loathing. I store all I see and distil, ferment and brew these into the medium of blog. I am who I am; simple statement carrying weight, ingrained with meaning. I am here to imprint my view of this world upon your tender eyes and souls. If you don’t like it – well, write it down yourself…
Mardy geek seeks similar for short lived, unfulfilling, rambunctious trysts. Excitable, pretentious, cantankerous and slightly camp. Writes things. Enjoys sneezing.
