One Sickly Boi Introduces: Future Funk

Well ladies and gentlemen he's bed-bound and out of action once again. While my first year at university was all about those chronic overuse injuries, it's evident at this point that the second year is all about the throat-ripping, stomach-destroying illnesses which are crippling me beyond belief. For the third time this academic year I... Continue Reading →


Burning through the Snow

After one hectic start to the year, we already find ourselves at the last week before another break. And goodness me it cannot come quick enough. The first half to the second term has consisted of two relentless opening weeks which saw the aptly-titled Micro Mauling and a bombardment of extra Japanese work, all before... Continue Reading →

A Long Way to Go

One month into 2018, and finally political warfare has broken out again at SOAS. This time however, lots of separate bickerings have flared up at once. We've had the cafe controversy, the UCU pension strikes, and my favourite of all, one of the SU boys having a bitching contest with Director Vamos through the medium... Continue Reading →

After a frantic opening fortnight for the term, a week to top the energy levels back up would surely prevent burnout, and pave the way for another productive fortnight before reading week.

Another Brandon Birthday Bash

The unforgettable three weeks that has been the winter break came to a nice conclusion on Friday night, as we all headed into Spoons to celebrate... Continue Reading →

Rummaging around Rochester

After a relaxed few days, the crew reassembled for the first non-alcoholic outing of the year- the pre-uni Deaf Cat gathering in Rochester. With various work commitments putting a strain on time, we made the unusual decision to meet earlier in the day, giving us access to a much less-densely populated high street. The quiet...

New Years 2018- The Gravesend Gathering

We definitely welcomed 2018 in suitable style. I would say it was a brilliant night, although considering I got in at 4pm the celebrations practically extended to the full 24 hours. To see off 2017, we gathered at Lily's gaff in Gravesend for what would become an evening of aggressive beer pong, competitive Mario Kart,... Continue Reading →
