Save money; do it yourself with Belfast Tool Library

It’s not often something comes along which truly revolutionises the way we think, that not only changes the community but changes a culture. ‘Sustainability’ is much more than just a 2020’s buzzword, it’s a means through which we can understand and ultimately learn to challenge our relationship with shopping, waste and consumption. Belfast Tool Library (BTL) is doing exactly that, and much, much more.

Experiencing a ‘Derry Girls’ state of mind

Experiencing a ‘Derry Girls’ state of mind

Lisa McGee’s Derry Girls, scripted for Channel 4 and set to a rocking soundtrack that included everything from The Cranberries to The Undertones and Whigfield, was a cheeky, anarchic, affectionate, superbly funny rendition of the lives of four mouthy, hormone-crazed local schoolgirls and one ‘wee English fella’. They misbehaved as much as possible in the 1990s Maiden City, British troops policing the streets and the peace process still in embryonic form, decked out in dodgy double denim (it was cool at the time) with hoop earrings, attitude, scrunchies, chokers (again, once very de rigueur), espousing sweary language as they vie for snogs and sambuca, flutter their eyelashes at designated ‘rides’, crash house parties, and pursue all manner of teenage kicks.
