The Doors Of Perception

April 23, 2013

Brought to you by the letter ‘T’ ‘The doors of perception’ is a phrase close to my heart. For one thing, the phrase inspired the name of one of my favourite bands of all time ‘The Doors’. Drugs, dreams and the unconscious are three things I believe to be closely integrated with one another and […]

Brought to you by the letter ‘O’ For me, living in the city centre of Leeds certainly has its perks.

This morning I came across a poll on Twitter titled ‘When was the last time you visited your local theatre?’. When I clicked on the link the pessimist in me wasn’t expecting too many people to answer that they had visited recently. But the poll, conducted by The Stage, showed 80% of people surveyed had been […]
