Feisty Vera reminisces the fetish Xpo

How refreshing it is to dive into a sea of fetish from time to time. Feel the latex hug and warmly smother every inch of your skin; feel the animal touch of soft leather on your own leather, cinching your waist, to remind you that there is not that much difference between you and the beast your corset is made of. And of course taste the whip, in love not given lightly (OK this is Lou Reed not me), eye the plethora of languorous dildos that crave for batteries and for a slippery slit where they can work their miracles.

The Bookchurch Review: 'Joshua Spassky' by Gwendoline Riley



Joshua Spassky
by Gwendoline Riley
Review written by Patrick Hussey.

When I first saw a Gwendoline Riley book in May 2002 I had been graduated for a year and was working in a bookshop. It was an rotten job with an Aspergic manager, the type who kept dropping tenners and then smiling when I handed them back. The staff were all older and had a sort of lost stink. Nice but lost. I tried to ignore them as much as possible and hid in the staff room reading.

Adventure across the Wilds of E. Euro Pt 1

Part 1: Croatia and the Garden Festival
By Michael Heap, our Al Jazeera man from the desert.

Croatia is a country with a lot of history, a lot of recent history. 20 years ago it was communist as part of Yugoslavia. 15 years ago it was in the midst of a bitter and costly war with Serbia the so called 'Domovinski Rat' homeland war– often shortened to just 'Rat' war. I don’t want this to turn into a history lesson but suffice to say the memory is an intrinsic part from the young peoples childhood. It was bloody, with just over 10,000 dead and 37,000 seriously wounded.

Happy Ramadan-Kareem

Happy Ramadan-Kareem is the greeting that resounds through the hallways and malls that surround me this week in Doha, Qatar. – it’s a mixed feeling.

Ramadan is a month long lunar event (one that rotates month by month through the year) it marks the anniversary of several important Islamic events – the revealing of the koran to Muhammad by Gabriel, The battle of Badr (between Mecca & Medina). The Five Pillars of Islam are celebrated; the most common one is fasting.

Vera prepares for the Venice Film Festival

Venice Film Festival: it’s a dirty job but someone has to do it.

Last year I used to sleep four hours per night. I finished writing my reviews at 3am, slept like a baby until 7am when the sun hit my sofa bed and I had no choice but to wake up and get ready for another day of hard work. This time around I don’t even have a sofa bed. But I don’t care, because going to the Venice Film Festival is always great fun and the average quality of the film is always damn good.
