So, in an attempt to try out Google+'s new offerings, I've created a collection. What for? What else? Classical music! This is where I'll post about classical music and put up my blog posts and reviews and rants and whatever else I fancy regarding my favourite topic. Everyone else is welcome to contribute of course, provided it's on topic. 

Noobies welcome, curious cats encouraged, veterans too. If you like classical music or would like to like it, follow this collection, or whatever it is one does with these things.

I've always loved watching Mark Ruffalo on screen. Now I love listening to him/reading him too. Much respect. 

#HeForShe   #EverydayFeminist  
Mark Ruffalo recently took on the ‘I am not a feminist' movement.

You can be a decent person without being a feminist. First and Second wave feminism were important, modern feminism is not.

My dad took me to it when it first came out, 1969?, I was 9, big big big theater in Sacramento California. Super wide curved screen. Fantastic. Scared the shit out of me. But I agree, one of the best movies ever made, in any genre.

Ever wondered or felt confused about what Science and the Scientific Method actually is? Listen to Richard Feynman, one of the greatest geniuses to understand and practise it as well as possibly its greatest teacher, explain to you in his inimitable, brilliant way.

"Information can't kill you" - Frank Zappa
Introduction
I'm a self-employed composer, musician, sound designer, recordist and general audio wizard. I mainly write music for TV and radio commercials but I'm also a product specialist for Avid Technology, demoing, teaching and explaining Pro Tools and Sibelius software to people. I am also the classical music blogmaster for TicketMasterUK. 

An Olympic-grade enthusiast, my particular areas of inspiration include classical music, science (especially physics), comics, coffee and critical thinking. Also zombies.
Bragging rights
I am occasionally dragged from drunken hangouts at the behest of the BBC for my prowess in science evangelism. I also once discombobulated Stephen Fry. Both of these things are true.

The menu is a delightful variety of East Mediterranean dishes that practically dance across the palate. The cocktail menu is full of inventive variations on classic drinks prepared with quality ingredients, clearly the work of passionate mixologists. The staff are pleasant, helpful and friendly.

Every time I visit Ealing, I make sure to pop in to Yvon's, even if it's only for a coffee and a slice of their divine brioche on the counter. Simply everything is delicious in this small but charming patisserie, from the array of exquisitely crafted confections to the breads, sandwiches and even the coffee. I try something new every time and am never disappointed. Make a point to give it a try next time you're in the area.

I arrived late to a party of 18 but was seated quickly and, though I ordered as their food was served, I had eaten my own meal in time for desert to be served at the same time. This, even though I ordered the rack of lamb, which is hardly a quick dish to prepare, which fell off the bone and was delicious. Very accomodating, great food and good atmosphere.

Simply one of the Great London pubs. Located in a delightfully cosy corner of Hampstead, it feels like walking into an Inn from Hobbiton, with nooks and crannies filled with people quaffing ales and eating the delicious food. Always busy, it's worth spending time having a drink or as a destination for a fine evening meal. I take nearly every visitor to the city there if I can.

High ceilings, wide walls and soviet paintings dominate this spacious but busy venue. Some nice drinks and a good menu helped make both my visits pleasant. Staff were friendly, though sometimes a little swamped. Overall a recommended destination.

All in all, you can't go wrong with a night out at Bloomsbury Bowling. A great venue for birthdays and other such events, you get a nice variety of bowling, drinking, karaoke and a fifties diner, all bound up with a great atmosphere. Bear in mind that it's a popular place, so it's nearly always busy. But raucous fun times are nearly always had. Perfect for a 7-15 person group looking for a good night out. Don't forget to order your White Russians!
