Always protect your baby's ears when in a loud environment. If possible, do so as adorably as you can.

I made my girlfriend a panettone birthday cake.

Not gonna lie, feeling pretty smug about it.

+Rich G. It was actually hard to finally settle on one to try, they all seem to vary quite a bit. The one I finally went for was on the BBC Good Food website and worked out pretty well. Takes some planning and a lot of time though!

So I've noticed the knee-jerk naysayers, habitual contrarians and incurable cynics are responding to #thedress  with a mixture of A) this is stupid/boring and B) who cares?, to which my response is A) no it's not and B) everyone. 

I know it's easy internet karma to cynically denounce everything that becomes popular or viral, but I think you're failing to see something genuinely fascinating here. Actual doctors, professors and scientists who specialise in colour perception, psychology and neuroscience are stumped as to exactly why this phenomenon is happening, so it's not some gimmicky misconceptionor distracting fad. There's potentially something to learn here about how our minds work.

Everyone is seeing this picture differently, which is incredibly interesting in itself, as it's a hitherto unexpected kind of optical illusion, plus it's happening as a spontaneous, global internet-fuelled phenomenon. Instead of us all talking about the latest celebrity fail or terrorist atrocity or economic injustice, we're marvelling at a harmless yet confounding quirk of our brains that we don't quite understand yet. 

Give me a perplexingly-hued sartorial conundrum over that stuff any day of the week.

To me, it was white and gold, when I read the article, but when I walled into another room, it was blue and black. It changed depending on the lighting in the room.

It's rare that something new moves me, but this song/video and the accompanying album by Flying Lotus is pushing all my buttons. Really haunted by this right now.

I don't know how many of you are in the UK or have the opportunity to visit the +Royal Opera House, but there's a lot of lovely stuff happening in the coming season that's well worth checking out if you can. I've written up some of the highlights for the +Ticketmaster UK blog so you can get an idea of what might be up your alley.

Ever been too afraid of the rules of etiquette to attend a classical concert? You might be surprised to find that they're not quite what you think. Allow me to elucidate in my latest piece for the +Ticketmaster UK blog.

Our Classical Blogmaster Sonny, unravels the rules of going to a classic concert, from what to wear, when to clap and how to have fun.

Story
Tagline
"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.

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.

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!

I live in Temple Fortune and Piacere is always my first choice when eating out locally. Ideal for a quick lunch, it has a nicely varied menu with consistent quality of food (I'm fond of the eggs benedict) and the friendly staff always serve you promptly, even when it's busy (which is every lunch time really, always bustling). Recommended if you're looking for a quick quality bite to eat when in the area.

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.

The music venue at King's Place is a favourite of mine, particularly for chamber music. It has excellent acoustics and is laid out well. On top of this, they always program very interesting, varied content and showcase extended festivals, like the year-long Bach Unwrapped taking place during 2013. Easy to access (it's a stone's throw from King's Cross Station), it also features an Art gallery and some places to eat, including the quite tasty (but quite expensive) Rotunda. All in all, a great cultural destination and worth checking out the program for upcoming concerts and events.

Top quality food, wonderful service, nice atmosphere. My dining guest and I had the set menu, which was well priced and had a great selection in each of the three courses. My starter of lamb was simply delicious and the beef bourguignon melted at the touch. Delicious dining, very friendly staff and overall a wonderful experience. Looking forward to returning for a repeat performance.
