"Everywhere is somewhere baby,
So can't you see we're in the middle,
Of somewhere.

Nowhere just means knowing nothing,
of where you've been or where you're going,
feels farther."

All or Nothing - Au Revoir Simone 

Summer is in the air

Here's what I'm excited about......

the smell of summer and the first rays of sunshine penetrating London's grey blanket of cloud for the first time in a very long time.

and this:


My beloved Strokes

The Arcade Fire (yes it is 'the' - that's how Win introduced them when I saw them last year)
 Blink 1 8 fucking 2

Bright Eyes

Two Door Cinema Club

Lykke Li

Band of Horses

Bloody brilliant mate

Hæven (In a Better World) is a superb recent film by Danish director Sussane Bier which won Best Foreign Language Film at this year Oscars. The film is quintessentially Scandinavian – intelligent, beautiful and emotionally restrained. And it is heavy in the enjoyable sense of the term.

Marty up to some news tricks

I love Martin Scorsese. Many of his films - Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Age of Innocence - are among my favourite and I think his understated storytelling is magical.

Marty's latest creation is a HBO show about prohibition era America, the fascinating decade when the American government banned alcohol. As Boardwalk Empire shows, the illegalisation of liquor had no effect on the amount of it that was drunken (alchol consumption in fact increased during the prohibion years). Rather, a black market for alcohol made a bunch of gangsters rich, and these bootleggers are the protagonists of Scorsese's latest venture.

Although Marty only directed the (world's most expensive ever) pilot episode, he is involved with the show as a producer. The characters teeter on the edge of good and evil in a manner that is trademark Scorsese. Starring hot-as-hell Michael Pitt as a jaded World War I veteran, and the unfailable Steve Bucemi as crooked Atlantic City mayor Nucky Thompson, the show is well-acted, well-conceived and well worth checking out.

Brighter is better

Those of you who have been hiding away in head-to-toe black for the past five years beware, this spring is all about, colour-blocking, colour-clashing, colour-fucking

Boring is so not okay

Evil be gone

Exorcism (from Late Latin exorcismus—to adjure) is the practice of evicting demons or other evil spiritual entities from a person who they are believed to have possessed. The elaborate ritual is quite ancient and still part of the belief system of many religions.
