Top 5 Posts of 2015

It’s that time of the year again for lazy writing and publishing top 5 articles 🙂

1. Richard Ayoade’s The Double: Film Review and Q&A Excerpts from the BFI Preview Screening

QA

I posted my review of the dark comedy The Double in April 2014 already, but it’s still the best read article on my website. People click on this article every day. I think it’s because a rather confusing film that leaves the viewer with some interesting questions after it’s finished and people look for explanations online. If you haven’t seen this brain teasing film by Richard Ayoade yet, then this should definitely be on your to watch list for 2016! I went to a preview screening at the British Film Institute where the director did a very entertaining Q&A. You can read an excerpt of it in my film review.

2. Street Artists Unveiled #4: Interview Mr Fahrenheit

Z UR So Porno

Early this year I posted the interview I did with the enigmatic street artist Mr Fahrenheit. He hardly does interviews, so I felt (and still do so) extremely honoured he accepted my invitation. You see his paste-ups and stickers (most of them include his famous cheeky slogan U R So Porno Baby!) all over east London, his hometown Berlin and all over the world actually.

3. Femme Fierce: Reloaded! 2015

On International Women’s Day last March it was the second time the famous Banksy Tunnel by Waterloo Station was taken over by Femme Fierce: a gang of 100+ talented female street artists. This year was the second edition of this amazing project where artists not only make stunning art like the one in the pic above but also raise money and awareness for good causes. The third edition will take place on 7 & 8 May 2016. Make sure to be part of it!

4. Recipe: Homemade Crunchy Granola

I’m a big fan of Natasha Corrett’s cookbooks which advocate alkaline eating. This recipe for homemade granola comes from her book Honestly Healthy for Life and is very easy to make. My hubby and I have been eating it almost daily for about 1.5 years now and we’re still not tired of it. Once you’ve eaten your own granola, you’ll never want to buy supermarket cereals filled with nastiness anymore!

5. In Search of New Street Art with Camden Street Art Tour

While east London used to be THE place for the best street art, artists are spreading out over the entire city. In the last year I’ve been making street art exploration trips to Camden, Walthamstow and Dulwich. In this post I wrote about the excellent guided street art tour in Camden.

Thank you all for your support in 2015!

Wishing you a very happy New Year and I hope to see you here again in 2016 🙂

  1. A very happy New Year to you as well! I wish you and Robin the very best for 2016, but most of all good health, which is so important….
    Thank you for your interesting posts, I really enjoy your blog!
    Greetings and love, Esther

    • Dankjewel Esther voor je lief berichtje! Een speciaal bedankje voor jou, want jij was ook in 2015 degene die de meeste reacties achterliet op mijn site 🙂
      De allerbeste wensen voor 2016 met veel geluk, liefde en inderdaad vooral ook goede gezondheid xx

      • Toch ook weer dit jaar? En dit terwijl ik mij regelmatig zo slecht voelde dat ik niets kon schrijven! En mij dan rot voelde omdat ik je dan niet kon laten weten dat ik je post waardeerde! Want ook al reageer ik niet altijd, ga er maar vanuit dat ik ze allemaal lees hoor! 🙂
        Op naar een nieuw jaar met weer veel mooie posts van jou, ik ben er heel blij mee zo op de hoogte te worden gehouden van het leven buitenshuis! Dankjewel! ❤
