Ron Burgundy is the man. He brings the news to everyone in San Diego and he does it with charm and devilishly good looks. If we had a reporter like Ron Burgundy on the BBC, I’d be on it 24/7. It’s the hair that does it.  Continue reading

The N.H.K is a conspiracy out to get us all. With all the consumerism taking importance in our lives, we no longer want to go out and we start to become socially inept. The world needs shut ins so those who aren’t have someone to look down on so they can get through their own lives. The N.H.K is out to get you. It may already have.  Continue reading

If season 5 of South Park teaches anything, it’s not to anger Cartman. Seriously, you don’t want to do it! And so begins Season 5, shock after shock with a drugged up towel in between.  Continue reading

South Park season 4 was still at a time when the series had the children acting like children and gave off a sweet sense of innocence. Such as molestation charges, Man Boy loving and finger banging. So innocent.  Continue reading

A long summer has passed since Moonrise Kingdom hit the cinemas. (My piece can be found here.) With the winter season fast approaching I wonder if the bright colours of the forest and youthful romance can warm my heart once more. It’s frozen up again.  Continue reading

After graduation the real world beckons. Some make it through seamlessly as they adapt to society, while others feel everything begin to crumble under their feet. The world becomes a ghost world as they fail to grow into a new skin, one which can accept working in an office 9-5 for the rest of their days. I can already see these cracks under my feet.  Continue reading
