Isolation location:

In meiner Wohnung in Berlin.

What positive things have you been doing during the downtime?

I got the ultimate iso-accessory – a dog – so I’ve been learning how to be a father to a furry, a needy child that has taken up most of my time. I sold loads of records that had been weighing me down and I watched Berlin turn green almost overnight from my living room window.

What cool books / articles / films / stuff have you recently discovered? 

I re-read a lot of Ishiguro recently and fell in love again with his deft narrative touch. ‘High Maintenance’ will make you want to move to NYC and ride around on a bike whilst high. Another reread was ‘Red Plenty Platforms’ by Nick Dyer-Witherford, an engaging paper about automated communism. Also binged on Contrapoints’ Youtube channel which has been an invaluable education on trans culture.
