It's not all about music anymore...



TV – The Returned (Aly, Walk With Me)

If you haven’t seen it yet – it’s one of the latest imports for British television audiences, this time from France – The Returned (“Les Revenants” – literally, “the ones who came back”). After The Killing and The Bridge it… Continue Reading →

FILM – Pitch Perfect

I managed to “drag” a friend along to see Pitch Perfect over the weekend – thought it might be one more for the Glee crowd but the a capella “No Diggity” cover slipped into the trailer sold me on at… Continue Reading →

FILM – Your Sister’s Sister

It’s been a while since I’ve written about a film on Musings. I’m not sure why that is – perhaps because it’s been a while since I’ve seen a film I wanted to write something about. Spending the weekend in… Continue Reading →

I’ve been to the Barbican a few times before – concerts, films, my brother’s graduation and just for a drink at the bistro – and have always considered it beautiful, especially the water features, but never really gave it much… Continue Reading →

Grant Lee Buffalo – In My Room

This probably isn’t the first song that comes to mind for most people when they think of rain. There isn’t an obvious lyrical reference to rain, no rain sound effects, it doesn’t even mention water (unless you count crying)… but… Continue Reading →

Romeo Must Die…

No, not some dark and tortured literary essay about the inevitable and necessary demise of one half of everyone’s favourite star-crossed lovers. It’s a film starring Jet Li and Aaliyah – and this post is about the soundtrack. I was… Continue Reading →
