I remember seeing [Great Gable] around two years ago, playing to about 15 people at the 459 Bar. Yes guys, I remember your cover of Paul Simon’s ’50 Ways To Leave Your Lover’. A truly great choice. Anyways, before this gets a little off track, Gable closed their set with the powerhouse new Foals guitar-tinged track ‘All Day Long’. Leaving the room ringing as they left, it did not take much to see why these guys pull the crowd they do.
James Francos, the 70s, the porno industry. The new bingo for Peak TV.
Byrdon and Coogan return with their delightful blend of the comedic and the culinary. In this case, The Trip to Spain delivers precisely what we’ve come to expect from the series. Beautiful scenery, amazing food and a couple of weather beaten male comedians who flit between self-deprecation and vanity.
Judgement Day is a historic accomplishment, one that merits a proper re-watch, not a mere piecemeal revisit through scenes on YoTube or TV
A Ghost Story takes a cosmic scope, but I can’t help feeling that it could have been so much pure and meant so much more if the lens was microcosmic. A study of grief and loss of love with grounding by Rooney Mara’s solar-plexus thumping performance would have been a brilliant thesis statement in its honest simplicity
With a fervent belief that true commitment to bad-taste transforms it into something fashionable, fun and infectious, Kirin is a lot to take in.
I couldn’t think of anything more terrifying than playing a delicate set of acoustic jazzy music to room full of mostly black overcoat-clad, chin stroking, forty-something, ultra-discerning listeners. But for The Necks, that is the thesis for their completely improvised performances.

There is no denying it, Tinder is weird. It is a rapid-fire environment of skin-deep swiping. But, humans are weirder. Tinder is merely a tool; it's utility is entirely dependent on the tool-wielder. If you're looking for a screw with a hammer in-hand, you probably won't nail it.

Women are mysterious creatures. I, myself, identify as a woman. I have a vagina and other magical traits. However, I am puzzled by ‘my kind’ almost indefinitely. We are a world of confusion that continues to both reinforce and challenge stereotypes that have been cast upon us. I cannot imagine what the opposite sex might think.
Urban exploration (URBEX) photography gives the euphoria that certainly can’t be matched by your standard photography adventure. It’s the feeling of jumping fences, lifting man holes, squeezing through tiny gaps and going into a place of unknown that intrigues me the most.
