From humble beginnings in April raving about altruistic animals and flat tops, (with the support of a few key people) Isaac Likes has grown into what it is today. I hope I’ve managed to capture your interest with some interesting interviews, a few juicy breaking news stories, and a couple of little film reviews thrown in along the way. Isaac Likes has certainly captured my interest – for better or
