Bodysong on TV

Bodysong is going to be on Channel 4 at 01:25 on Sunday morning. You should check it out, even if it’s just for Jonny Greenwood’s incredible soundtrack.

Freeview? Peeview more like!

five (that’s Channel Five to you and me) is set to take its first tentative steps into the world of multichannel with the launch of two new channels: five us (Five U.S.) and five life (not to be confused with Five Live). They’re both going to be launched on Freeview, which is good news, isn’t […]

Motherfuckin’ Snakes on a Motherfuckin’ Plane!

Minor spoiler alert I’m not much of a moviegoer. The last time I went to the cinema was to see Signs (it wasn’t my choice), starring that popular fellow Mel Gibson. In case you have forgotten this forgettable movie, it featured aliens that were scared by water. The entire length of the film was spent […]

Dark Side of the Rainbow

I know that Dark Side of the Rainbow is pretty old news, but I’ve just watched it for the first time on Google Video. I have to say, it is indeed scarily synchronised at certain points. The beginning of ‘Time’ gave me the creeps!

I hope the translator was a lip reader

This evening I had a look at Film4’s first free night. Enjoyed Lost in Translation. But oh dear. The first ad break — the entirity of which was bought by Renault — went out in silence. It looked like a lot of effort went into it aswell. I’m sure there was a new advert there, […]

The true star of Radiohead

Thom Yorke’s new solo album is getting a lot of attention, which probably shouldn’t be surprising. I don’t know how good the album is. I haven’t heard it yet, because I’m waiting for its release on Monday. But I want to know, why has Jonny Greenwood’s solo material never even received a fraction of the […]

Plaid & Bob Jaroc — Greedy Baby

I’ll be honest here. I’ve gone right off Plaid over these past few years. ‘Double Figure’ is a brilliant album in my view, but everything after that seemed a bit half-hearted. All of their music started to sound the same, and I even remember reading an interview where Ed Handley and Andy Turner pretty much […]

s*i*eTV ;-)

About a week ago I expressed relief that the new Freeview channel, smileTV, wasn’t yet another quiz channel. Unfortunately I was wrong. That groovy Shortcutters programme was only there for the first night. Apparently now it’s been shunted to 4:15am, which even I am not prepared to stay up for. Instead, between 1am and 4:15am […]
