25 November 2020

Morgan continues using The Record as an outlet for his impotent rage, as the March lockdown didn’t satisfactorily isolate him from society.   Much like the weird smelly kid your mum forces you to be friends with, I tend to avoid Bioshock 2, and judging by the way the game constantly crashed every five minutes, […]

At this point in 2020, all we want to do is go into hibernation for the winter and hope things will magically work themselves out.

Review: Love Life

Review: Positions by Ariana Grande

I’d like to preface this review by saying that I love Ariana Grande. Her past two albums have been brilliant and feature some of the best songs of her career, despite coming out within six months of each other. God is a woman was my most played song on Spotify for two years in a […]
