    The Graduate


    in 2013 i studied film and creative writing at uni, then did my masters in media in 2016

    my favourite project topics have been;

    - queer theory & disney animated classics
    - power structures and fan ownership in game of thrones
    - postmodernism in westworld
    - music and aesthetic study of black mirror

    thanks to my degree, i now hate westerns

  • The Lion King

    The Lion King


    i love the lion king so much that it's now basically a personality trait.

    i used to watch it every day as a kid, then almost every day as a teenager when i ran a lion king tumblr, so i've worked out that I've probably spent 500 hours of my life watching the lion king, and that's the same as a month.

    one month of my life spent watching the lion king.
