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 →

Penny and the Quarters – You And Me

When I first heard about Blue Valentine towards the end of last year, I couldn’t wait to see it – Ryan Gosling (The Notebook, Half Nelson & Lars and the Real Girl to name a few) and Michelle Williams (ex-Dawson’s Creek… Continue Reading →

Mazzy Star – Into Dust

9am on a Saturday morning I could hear music coming from my flatmate’s room above me. I thought it was this: Mazzy Star – Into Dust Turns out it wasn’t, but I wanted to post it anyway. It’s from the… Continue Reading →

Just when I thought I had overcome my addiction, with several of my favourite TV *dramas* either permanently migrating to the television archives (Legend of the Seeker, Dollhouse, Heroes, 24) or entering the bi-annual UK hiatus allowing for replacements (Grey’s… Continue Reading →

Screaming Trees – Nearly Lost You

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 →
