Maybe a new regular column, maybe not.)
Favourite Movie : Cold, Eoin Macken
Two brothers who try to understand each other, some big family secrets, rural Ireland and a girl…it’s always about a girl. Kind of.
Gripping, disturbing, moving. fascinating,Cold is the kind of movie that leaves a permanent mark on your mind. Full of beautiful shots (Macken captures light and shadows with such perfection it’s unreal) and amazing actors (Tom Hopper’s performance is breathtaking, no less. A fragile and lost boy trapped in a giant body, playing with strengths and weaknesses all along), this movie(partly inspired by Steinbeck’s East Of Eden) is a must-see. Andto keep things indie, it’s been crowdfunded on Indiegogo. DIY never dies.
Favourite album : The Dangerous Summer – Golden Record
“You let the wind breathe down my neck.
I regret and regret till there’s nothing left.
There were patterns.There were shapes in the form of a loss”
I am jealous of AJ Perdomo’s genius, brutal songwriting. Pop-punk with a soul at its best.
Favourite word maker : Richard Milward
I fell in love with Kimberly Clark’s Capital Punishment over the summer : the story of a young twenty something trying to do some good after her fiancé committed suicide because of her is hilarious, and the book turns into a psychedelic Dante’s Inferno. Delicious, mad, strange, Richard Milward’s style totally won me over.
Favourite announcement : Rival Schools to play an one-off show at The Haunt, Brighton
Punkstatic broke the news last night : NYC’s post-hardcore outfit will play a headline show on November 18th IN BRIGHTON.
My heart is happy.
Be there, lovers.
Stay excellent to each other x
