Henderson Downing

Cornish writer and musician Henderson Downing currently lives in London. An award-winning haiku poet, he has written for various literary journals and small press magazines. He is a founding member of Fol, plays his own style of 'lazy drums' for misfit pop-rockers The Colonies, and splits his part-time working world between a leading architectural school in Bloomsbury and a misleading bookstore in Notting Hill.

Movie Review: Superbad
It's easy to compare this film to every other r-rated "teens looking to get laid" movie to come along in the last 10 years, but while films like American Pie played heavy to the vulgarity, they failed to capture the true soul of teenage speech.
