Violent Femmes – We Can Do Anything

New album. Played this to death

*happy dance*

Is it one of their greats? No. Is it better than yours? Fuck, yeah!

Hail, Ceasar!

AND new Coens!!!!!!!. I expect to not awake in the morning.

It’s like they came up with the device of being able to do all the scenes they ever dreamt of but couldn’t find a place for by throwing them into a great bug hollywood dressing up box and film-within-a-film premise. It’s all over the shop. But, ultimately such a joyous celebration of a golden age of movies. Still grinning.

The Others Below

No-budget brit c-movie. Manages to be quite creepy and darkly funny. Althought I wouldn’t put money on the latter being deliberate.

10 Cloverfield Lane

Some-budget US b-movie. Who doesn’t like John Goodman at his most sinisterly avuncular best? An object lesson in economic story telling and vision. Great fun.

High-rise

*sigh*
So disappointing. Looks amazing. Fantastic performances. And, it tries.

Suspect when it was called unfilmable, they should’ve listened. Seems really long, yet really rushed. Maybe a six part series would’ve worked better.

Shame

I think I liked this. Despite it’s best efforts to the contrary

Pere Ubu – The Dome (24 March 2016)

Contrary to expectation, a rather mirthful gig. If a little long.

Momus – Cafe Oto (25 March 2016)

Right up with expectation, an enormously mirthful gig. With those moments. Always essential.

Disorder

Ennui.
Ennui.
*crash bang*
Ennui.
*stabby killy*
Fin. WTF?

Yes, it is French
