Feed

At Stranger Collective we love to Feed. We do it every ten days (or taking a Day 10 as we call it). It's about keeping our thinking fresh by continually nourishing the parts of our brains that deliver those lightbulb moments so that we stay original, vibrant and ahead of the curve.

Pavement pedantry: a lot

img_6722

Monroe and DiMaggio, K-Fed and Britney, Brand and Perry, some partnerships should just never have happened. ‘Alot’ is one of those.

Compounding the two words ‘a’ and ‘lot’ is a something us pedants notice happening a lot. Perhaps it’s because they look quite nice and neat together. But the truth of the matter is, a lot is like any two-word phrase with the indefinite article (a) followed by a noun (lot). For instance, a doga pen, and a toupee. You’d never see atoupee compounded would you?

Let’s all agree to end this madness now, even if our predictive text doesn’t agree.
