Rest in Peace, Mac Miller.
For fans of rap music, this week brought a passing that was a big shock, with Mac Miller dying at the age of 26. He was a rap artist who bridged the gap between the old school and the new, with fellow musicians, such as Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar, giving him his props throughout his career and now even more so in death. He was someone who touched a lot of lives with his work and he will be dearly missed. We’re sure we weren’t the only ones listening to his latest album, Swimming, over the weekend.
On with the Round-up.

The Insanity of Coronation Street | Video Essay | Full Fat Videos
Soaps hold a special place in the hearts of a large portion of people here in the UK, whether it’s Emmerdale, Eastenders or Hollyoaks. The melodrama and “interesting” acting choices mean that a lot of what happens on screen can seem frankly ridiculous when you look at it as an overarching narrative.
Full Fat Videos have chosen to do that with one of the longest running soaps in the world, Coronation Street. They lay it out to show us all just how crazy it all is and really question why soaps choose to try and adhere to any sense of realism.
It’s a fascinating video.

The Simpsons have been around for over 25 years and finally, FINALLY they’ve collaborated with ASOS for a capsule collection. It is something that we didn’t know we needed, but Sammy Scott has got her hands on some of the pieces and given us her thoughts on them. We want to buy them all now!
Jordan Lipscombe has shared with us her first ever shoe haul. She’s worked with up-and-coming brand Koi Footwear to showcase some of their unique and interesting pieces.
