Not Voodoo

As a green but aspirational first-year student I read Gordon Comstock’s blog with an unsettling mixture of hilarity and dread – entertained by the pithy insight into his trials as a young freelancer, but painfully aware that I would inevitably face many of the challenges he documented. Now, reassuringly, Gordon has given up regular posting having been recruited by a top London ad agency. Not Voodoo now serves as an archive of tougher times, when job-hunting and computer-gaming occurred in equal measure and break-ups were publicly documented with unashamed vitriol. Perfect Bank Holiday reading.
