[cheap pun involving the word “bland”]

The first series of BBC1’s Blandings came to an end yesterday… in much the same way that it began, with plenty of broad buffoonery, occasionally grotesque imagery*, and a few mildly amusing moments scattered sparsely throughout. Blandings Castle served as … Continue reading

Putting The “EE” In Squeee!

I can’t afford to go to the cinema as often as I’d like these days, so I didn’t have much invested in the main awards at the BAFTAs last night. That said, I thought Paloma Faith got things off to … Continue reading

Fail Britannia

It’s the Brit Awards tonight… but Paloma Faith isn’t nominated in a single category, therefore they are meaningless. In happier news, she’s finally releasing my fave track off the album, “Upside Down“, as a single. Hurrah! Doesn’t make much difference … Continue reading

Unsolicited End-of-Year Opinions…

I see a lot of mags/sites are breaking out their “Best of the Decade” lists, but I can’t be doing with that. Amélie remains my favourite film of all time, so it follows that it’s my fave of the decade… … Continue reading

Paloma Faith

As the lead “Emo” in St Trinian’s, Paloma Faith scored herself a considerable amount of screen time, although I didn’t really notice her until she ditched the face-paint and piercings, and appeared as herself on an episode of Never Mind … Continue reading
