Think astronomy is just for science nerds? Well you’re wrong! Watching a meteor shower is one of the easiest ways of enjoying the night sky in all its glory, since you don’t need any special equipment or astronomical knowledge. Not to mention, with the addition of a big blanket it suddenly becomes
17 years is a long time in the music industry. We’ve been through the girl/boy band era and third-wave ska, through the techno-filth of nu-metal, journeyed through garage and R & B and indie and a whole lot more between 1998 and 2015. But here we are, a little way into the 21st century, spoilt for
So, you think you know how to use Google? You go to the site, stick your words in the box and off you go, right? That works, sure, but you might not realise that there are some handy tricks you can use to find things much quicker. (more…)
I don’t get to do much fun stuff these days. In recent weeks I have taken up embroidery, and have developed a big thing for loner YouTube yoga classes. As you can imagine, when my friend said his band would be supporting Ariel Pink in Glasgow, I immediately demanded that he let me tag along. It
First off, I think it’s fair to disclose that I’ve never been a big fan of Muse. I respect the way that they have carved their own niche in the world of modern rock music, taking the posturing and grunt of 80s British stadium rockers Queen and their contemporaries and mixing it up with classical
Cult films are, by their very nature, hard to define. They tend to be peculiar little films not built for the mainstream, but which inspire small pockets of enthusiasm that build over time into loyal fanbases. Watching these off-beat films makes you feel like you’re joining a special little club
If you haven’t been to a music festival recently, or ever, then you might think that they are predominantly technology free, and a chance to get off the grid for a few days while you romp about in a muddy field and scream your lungs out to a few bands.
Well, I thought that too.

1985 was a great year for movies; The Goonies, Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, I could go on. But today we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the now cult classic Return to Oz.
The film was a massive failure at the box office on release, which to be fair you can kinda
On a night out last week, I found myself in one of those clubs which has big TVs to show the video of the songs being played. Not long after arriving, the video for Worth It by American girl-group Fifth Harmony popped up. It features the five young singers in what might best be described as ‘Sexy
Politics has long felt like a male-dominated sphere, what with women having lower representation in Parliament and PM’s Questions looking like a bunch of schoolboys scrapping in the playground. One of the more heartening aspects of this year’s otherwise manic scramble to Downing Street, then, was
I started watching Parks and Recreation five years ago, and only this week did I bother to finish watching all the seasons of the show (which ended in 2014). If you haven’t seen it, see it. Leslie Knope is played by Amy Poheler, and is “literally, the nicest person in the world ever”. She kills me.
