Review of ‘FREE I.H.’ – illuminati hotties

5 August 2020

Sarah Tudzin doesn’t give listeners a thesis to pour over in search of deep meanings and other easter eggs. She’s always delivered her messages straight ahead sans mystery, and her latest release pushes that M.O. to new heights. FREE I.H: This Is Not the One You’ve Been Waiting For, the new record from Tudzin’s illuminati […]

folklore: A Track-By-Track Review

2 August 2020

Okay.  I’ve never really liked Taylor Swift. With a music taste such as mine – one which involves an eclectic mix of Hozier and Rufus Wainwright with the occasional dash of Tom Rosenthal, and is almost worryingly centred on good old emotional male vocals with acoustic backing – she’s never really appealed to me. Until […]

The Mysteries of ‘Dark’

31 July 2020

The Netflix series ‘Dark’  builds an evocative vision of the ordinary lives of individuals who seem so different, yet are intertwined by the hand of fate to move along a predestined path. This show is based on a deterministic theory which explains the very reason things happen the way they do – as if humans are tiny fragments […]

What to Watch: 10 Cloverfield Lane

30 July 2020

Late one evening in March 2016, I went to the cinema to see 10 Cloverfield Lane, knowing practically nothing about the film I was about to watch. Until just a few weeks before its release, nobody (including the cast and crew) even knew the name of the film, and the publicity had given very little […]

Jonathan Franzen’s Purity is Pretty Bad

24 July 2020

Like a lot of people, I realised pretty early on that one of the potential upsides of lockdown was the opportunity to spend more time reading. There’s always the question of what to read, though. For some reason, I decided that I was feeling like a Big American Novel, and so I turned to an […]

What to Watch: Queen of Katwe

21 July 2020

Sometimes you watch a film and it’s amazing. You love it. You think everyone should see it because it’s so gosh-darn close to perfect. But when you mention it to friends, to family, (and colleagues, and pets, and anyone else you talk to)… they’ve never even heard of it. It’s a strange experience. When it […]

What To Watch: Tangled

7 July 2020

In the land of Corona, a young woman is confined to her home and dreams of the outside world… Despite sounding a lot like the circumstances many of us are facing in the present-day, this premise is actually the fantasy set-up for Tangled, Disney’s adaptation of the Rapunzel myth. Tangled is a delightful film which […]

Ten days have passed since Juneteenth – a holiday to celebrate the emancipation of American slaves – and what better way to (belatedly) celebrate than supporting black artists. So, I have compiled a list of the top five black comedians I watched on Netflix these past few days. A quick disclaimer though, I am American, […]

Ranking Every Conor Oberst Album

27 June 2020

I’ve tried to include every album and EP Conor Oberst has made, but there are some omissions to avoid repetition. 32. Water – 1993 (Conor Oberst) Here’s the thing: Conor Oberst was thirteen when he made this. Thirteen. The guitarwork is sometimes a bit off, but the songs are remarkably well-structured given his age. In […]
