Censorship feels like too basic a title.

It’s a weird concept to be so aware of who can access the content you post online, and it’s not really something I’ve fallen victim to much in the past – on this blog at least. It’s definitely restricting. You can’t necessarily express yourself entirely in the way that you want to because you don’t know who might be reading what you write or how they might interpret that. I’m finding it a lot in regards to a recent project of mine, where I’m aware more so than ever of my views and how my own opinions might offend people or how they might be perceived differently to how I intended.

note to self: pay attention

My attention span is honestly horrendous.

I’ve spoken briefly about issues regarding this before, but I think it’s something I really need to begin to address more frequently. I honestly have a horrendous attention span.

I am the sort of person who will put all of their energy into something all at once and then burn out quickly. I struggle to balance projects evenly and often leave things neglected and without nurture; quite like this blog. Continue reading note to self: pay attention

Twenty Sixteen

Back when I still blogged on my first blog, I tried to blog using a schedule. I found that it had it’s pros but, with anything, also had it’s cons. You see, for as long as I can remember, in all walks of life, my biggest struggle has been staying motivated. When I start a new project, or re-involve myself with a past project, the flame is very much alive and I am dedicated – almost entirely to the point that it dictates my life – for days, weeks and sometimes months. But when that flame burns out, I’ve always struggled in relighting it.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while then you might have seen evidence of this. As many of you may know, I am currently a student but I also run a freelance graphic design, art and photography business. In managing my time, I can sometimes go weeks without posting on this blog, because I’m too involved in my freelance work or my studies, and the same goes for sometimes I’ll post here each day, but other elements of the equation therefore are let down.

The booze, the birds and the fast cars.

Ladies and gents, I’m honoured to say that my last issue of Interview Central 2015 is with the amazing East End Lovers after I got the chance to catch up with Zachary Charles Skinner!
Welcome to Delirious Antidotes! Tell us a bit about the band? 
The band was formed mid 2015 in Whitechapel London.

We are from East London and we like to make sexy music for lovers.
You can choose just three of your favourite aspects of being in a band, what would they be?
The booze, the birds and the fast cars.

One Year, and Counting

On this day last year, I made the decision regarding something that I had been contemplating for a number of weeks. You see, in 2012 I set up a blog and the success I had from the back of it completely overwhelmed and surprised me. Despite the fact that it’s popularity was continuing to grow and the support I had already received had been amazing, I didn’t feel as if the blog still “understood” me. I was ready for a new adventure; a more mature adventure; an adventure where I could express myself in more depth and with a completely new image. Because of this desire, Delirious Antidotes was born.

I think, in hindsight, the post that really made me realise that I was ready for a new blog was this one. It had attracted a lot of attention and I came to realise that the way I write now is not anything like how I used to write. I was beginning to find a professional edge – a style that I had longed for for so long – and now I had, I wanted to start fresh with something that I knew I would always be proud of.

Getting Social

The coming week marks a year since I scrapped my old blog and started this new one, and the support I’ve received has been overwhelming. I’ll be posting another post at some point this week in regards to the reflection of the last year but I just wanted to set up some updates in preparation because, in this coming year, I’m planning to really roll out my blog across a variety of platforms and make it even bigger, and even better than it has grown to be.

Anymore

Your eyes were cold alas I still felt your warmth. Your confessions were so dark they burned through my skin alas I still didn’t break. Your mind was twisted alas I still stood my ground, not tangled within your branches – or, maybe I was too tangled to realise. But now secrets spill from your tainted hands and your tongue is a serpent, stringing metaphors around my throat and choking me; and I don’t trust you anymore.
