KID WEEK

It can often be useful to look at the world through the eyes and mindset of a child. What might otherwise seem like a foregone conclusion can become a new avenue to explore. What might otherwise appear the necessary solution can suddenly become quite the reverse. And what might be familiar and predictable can become worthy of a second look. Aside from that, they can frequently be quite annoying.

FANTASY WEEK

In a world where news can be fake, and there’s no knowing if you’re conversing with a person or a robot online, creating real fantasy has become harder than it used to be – simply because we’re prepared to believe anything. And in equal measure prepared to be suspicious too.

METAL WEEK

There was a scent in the air. After a particularly heavy downburst on this otherwise perfect day, the smell was inescapable. A smell of metal. Or iron in particular. It was as choking as if you’d just licked a rusty nail – a genuine nail covered in rust, not the cocktail that shares its name. The metallic smell surrounded us. And then – as quickly as it had arrived - it was gone.

EXCESS WEEK

It’s a fairly well known rule of comedy that just because blowing a raspberry is funny doesn’t mean blowing two raspberries is twice as funny. But then again, blowing an enormous number of raspberries simultaneously may tip the balance into being so excessive that the result is hysterical. Some say less is more. But then again, there are times when more can be more. This week is one of those times.
