Ranch eggs for breakfast - shallow fry bell pepper, zucchini (courgette) and red onion in olive oil with garlic and chopped red chili, pinch of salt to make a salsa. Fry eggs until just set then finish them in the pan with the salsa. Serve with hash browns, a sprinkling of cilantro (coriander) and a glass of orange juice on the side.

Back in the 1980s, this is what I expected the future to look like. And now it does.

My Oscars wishlist:

Best Actor: Matthew McConaughey (but I think it could well be Chiwetel Ejiofor)

Best Actress: Cate Blanchett (but I'd settle for Judi Dench)

Best Film: Gravity (but I think it will be 12 Years a Slave)

Supporting Actress: Lupita Nyong'o (robbed at the BAFTAs)

Supporting Actor: Jonah Hill (but I think it will go to Jared Leto or Barkhad Abdi)

Thanks for the credit, but I can't claim it. I hoped for McConaughey, but expected Ejiofor.

All that's missing from this is George Clooney as Batman.

It took me a while to get around to watching Mad Men.  

Six years, in fact. Of course that meant that by the time I did watch the misadventures of Don Draper, Peggy Olson and the rest of the gang via Netflix there was plenty of it to watch!  

For someone who's been a creative freelancer for a couple of decades (as an academic and a journalist), it proved to be perfect binge viewing. The Christmas holidays really flew by this year! It's near perfect drama; beautiful to look at, thoughtful, funny, tragic and strangely moral too. And never in a sugary way.

It also struck me how incredibly instructive it is. So much of the office politicking and day to day business depicted in the show can be applied to any creative practice. It's chock-full of lessons you can learn. 

And I thought, why not tease some of those lessons out for other people? So I did. I've written this piece that highlights the tips creative freelancers can take from Mad Men.  Massive thanks to +Creative Bloq for letting me run with it.

Please back my piece about low paying freelance sites on Contributoria. The piece is fully researched, written and ready for release! It won't cost you a dime.

If you've backed it before, please could you back it again? A glitch meant that it was bumped to another issue. Really want to get it out there now.

By the way +contributoria is an awesome startup dedicated to crowdfunding  (and crowd editing) new journalism. It's well worth joining!
