My answers

What made you start blogging?

It started as an indulgent project and continues to be one. It’s based on the stuff I am interested in with no regard to anyone else’s feelings or thoughts. Fortunately, lots of other people seemed to be interested in the same things as I was, so I have slowly built up a community of like-minded souls.

Why do you enjoy blogging?

I enjoy it because it puts me in touch with other like-minded people, I also learn more about enriching topics that mean a lot to me.

Explain your blog in one paragraph…

A quirky internet wunderkammer full to the brim with quirky and unusual stories from history, art, music, books, travel science and so on. Sometimes I inject a bit of personal venting about topics that give me the shits…purely for my own sanity but I try to keep that to a minimum as I know it can be draining for others to read.

What kinds of topics are you really passionate about and why?

Where do I begin…indigenous rights, nature, custodianship of the land, paganism, travel, Zen Buddhism, yoga, archaeology, paleontology, Jungian psychology and archetypal symbolism, folk stories, personal development, science, health, improving the world in a small way through my skills, marketing for NFPs and charities, fiction, non-fiction. I could go on but it may bore you.

If you could choose to have 5-10 people (famous/not famous, dead or alive) at your house for a dinner party, who would you choose?

The Dalai Lama, Jacinda Ardern, Nick Cave, Malcolm Gladwell, Diana Princess of Wales, Jordan Peterson, Robert Greene, Carl Jung, Haruki Murakami, Greta Thunberg,

Name one person who changed the course of your life for the better and how they helped you…

My step grandfather now sadly shuffled off this mortal coil, who was the only one in my family who told me as a child that I was smart and that if I used my brain, I could accomplish anything I wanted in life, and actively encouraged me to pursue learning.

Name 5 books, or films or pieces of music that you love…

The Piano – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, Massive Attack – Blue Lines, Aphex Twin – Selected Ambient Works,

Name one place in the world you want to go…

Greenland

If you could go back in time and visit one era or civilization during history, where would you go and why?

Ancient Egypt – but not as a slave, as a wealthy member of the elite.

Look forward to hearing your answers, Content Catnip

  1. Thanks for including me, nice to learn a bit more about your interests/passions! Blue Lines is a great album. Think I prefer Selected Ambient Works Volume II (1994), Aphex Twin’s 85-92 ambient-techno stuff is more famous though. What is it about Greenland that fascinates you?

    1. No worries Chris, I have really enjoyed reading your blog too…I have listened to Ambient Works Vol I about a million times but have neglected Volume I, I am listening to it now and it’s great, underappreciated album. Greenland is vast and underpopulated and has an interesting Viking and indigenous past that is hidden in the landscape. I have always been fascinated by cold and arctic places. I wanted to go to Iceland too, however I read that recently Iceland is actually heaving with tourists nowadays and that doesn’t sound so appealing so my new favourite place I want to go is Iceland. Fiordland in the southern part of NZ is similarly quiet and serene as well, just love mountainous and glacial places, what about you where would you like to go, if you had the chance?

  2. Iceland is not so far away, also on my bucket list! I think you’re right about the increased tourism though it is a beautiful place from what I hear.

      1. That would be really nice, I always wanted to see Rome too. I would like to see Istanbul as well but there are a lot of issues there at the moment, so I will probably wait until it has calmed down
