On one hand, I’m grateful that the worst thing I can say has happened to me personally during this pandemic is that my wedding has been postponed. On the other hand… my wedding’s been postponed by a year and it sucks.Read more

The lesson from our first pretender to the throne is… don’t make promises you can’t keep. Beautiful and violent, my love affair with Into The Badlands was as intense as it was ultimately disappointing.Read more
Starring John David Washington, son of the iconic Denzel Washington, TENET promises to be a time-bending, espionage action thriller – and I trust Christopher Nolan to deliver.Read more
Every once in a while you catch wind of an artist who actually walks the walk and talks the talk of unabashed individuality. If that’s your jam, you’ll enjoy Sudan Archives.
A self-taught violinist, producer and singer, Sudan Archives’ unique style combines inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers (how cool is that?!) and R&B to create music that’ll have you bopping your head and occasionally doing a jig. In an interview with COLLiDE, Sudan Archives talks about two artists who’s music has had an impact on her: Juldeh Camara, a griot and Nyanyero (one-string fiddle) player from Gambia, and Jimi Hendrix. Talk about diversity of influence.

Of all the Sudan Archives tracks I love, I’ve chosen Glorious – from her 2019 album titled Athena – for this Music Monday because the music video is amazing, and the song is just mix of hype and chill to take you into the week. So prepare for an audiovisual delight, and have a great week!

There are likely a myriad of reasons why this movie should have aged badly. And yet…
Since I first saw this movie in 2009, a full decade after its initial release, I knew that it would become one of those movies I watched over and over ad infinitum. Fast forward a decade and a year… and I’ve watched The Boondock Saints at least once a year since then, usually around St. Patrick’s Day because well, why not?Read more
Among the things that I love are, you guessed it: music, and Saint Patrick’s Day. So why not combine them? That’s right, there’s absolutely no reason why not. So, on this beautiful day, have a listen to Free Ireland, a playlist to drink to!Read more
AniMayhem draws to a close and who would I be if I didn’t end on a fun note? Somebody else, that’s who! So… are you ready for my dark anime confession?Read more
All in all I’ve been watching anime with vary degrees of intensity for over a decade now. In that time I’ve never stopped to consider what my favourites are out of the multitude, or why. But for you, dear (possibly fictional) readers, I shall endeavour!Read more
