Vegan Strip Club: The World’s First and Only

No, this is not a joke. No, this isn’t an article from The Onion. No, it isn’t April Fools Day. The world's first vegan strip club in Portland, Oregon, has been opened by a guy named Johnny Diablo Zukle. This is a strange mish-mash of cultures coming together, and to tell you the truth, I’m not sure what to make of it.

The Crippling Loneliness of Being Self-employed

It's not easy to talk about being lonely. You feel like a f*cking loser. But as we become adults and drift apart from many of our childhood friends due to life's inevitable responsibilities, it's common to find that your friends and acquaintances are all people you know from work. Even if you don't consider them your BFFs, you probably spend at least 37.5 hours a week with them - more than you probably see your other friends or family.

My Mystery Holiday Experience

Is pitching up at the airport with no idea where you're flying to really a salve for travel-related anxiety? A few months ago, two friends and I decided we wanted to go on holiday. These were my friends Caroline and Jake, and all three of us are admittedly quite stubborn and indecisive, which made choosing a destination rather difficult.

What’s the Best Vegan Weightlifting Shoes? Reviews & Buyer’s Guide

If you’re a vegan athlete who is regularly lifting barbells in the gym, then you should probably buy yourself a pair of decent vegan-friendly weightlifting shoes. Sadly, for vegans and veggies who want equipment not made from animals, you’re going to struggle to find weightlifting shoes not made from leather.

Powher Review What You Need to Know Before You buy

Powher, which is surprisingly hard to say in a sentence, is a pre workout for women that is designed to increase energy and focus while improving women’s gym performance and strength training.

Travelling as a gay couple

Travelling to different cultures can present a wide array of challenges, particularly if your basic rights change in your destination of choice. One writer considers the difficulties of travel as part of a gay couple. A middle-aged gay couple I know recently toured the southern states of the US. In a Floridian bar they encountered a formerly-homeless man to whom they gave a considerable amount of money many years ago.

Charlie Brooker’s 2016 Wipe

Cynical metropolitan elitists such as myself have one thing to hold onto at the end of this abysmal year: Charlie Brooker tearing it to bleeding shreds. Charlie Brooker’s 2016 Wipe was almost too easy really wasn’t it? The year that brought us Brexit, Trump, war, famine, terror and all-around terribleness has given Charlie Brooker a plethora of material to condescendingly mock.

World War Weird

Just a heads up: you probably shouldn’t bother. I fell for this programme’s gimmick. It had an intriguing name. World War Weird was simply too much of a provocative name to pass up. The show has some intriguing nuggets of real and fact-checked information, before spoiling it all with wild speculation and unsupported theories that are dazzled before you with fancy editing and camerawork. It feels an awful lot like it belongs on The History Channel. You know, when it stopped being about history and started doing shows about aliens and stuff. I should’ve known what I was walking into I suppose.

About

Joseph F. Hallas

I have 7+ years of experience in copywriting, SEO, content writing, and proofreading.

I write blogs, product descriptions, and website copy for clients in various different sectors - Agile, F&B, E-commerce, SEO providers, Fashion, Mental Health... the list goes on and on.

I can write in various styles and tones, though I am often commended for my "informal" and "chatty" style which is popular on web blogs and landing pages for more "hip" and "edgy" companies.

I am a native English speaker born in Manchester, England. I got an A* in my English Literature GCSE if that gets me any brownie points. I also have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Filmmaking from the Manchester School of Art, where I discovered my talent for writing as I worked on scripts and screenplays.

If you want a hard worker with a brilliant fluent command of the English language- hit me up!

Cheers!

Joseph
