    Twin Peaks Episode 2: David Lynch’s Dance of the Dream Man

    There are many brilliant episodes of Twin Peaks, and Episode 2 is definitely in the top five in terms of quality. Although it can be argued that a few may be stronger, this one will always mean the most to me because it was the first one I ever saw. My dad watched the first […] More

    5 Years… 5 Favourites from David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy

    Five years on from his death, Simon McDermott celebrates five songs from David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy era. When thinking about David Bowie’s long and frankly intimidating career, most fans will agree that two eras stand out as the highlights. Firstly, his infamous Glam Rock period in the early ‘70s, where he put his androgynous spin […] More

    Brave New World: Sex, Drugs but No Rock n’ Roll

    The TV show adaptation of Brave New World is an oxymoron in and of itself. It’s based on the groundbreaking book of the same name written by Aldous Huxley all the way back in 1931. It’s mind-boggling to think that it was written nearly 90 years ago, as Huxley created a future world with so […] More

    The Boys are Back in Town with Their Second Season

    The Boys, along with The Umbrella Academy, were my favourite new shows of last year and it’s fitting that their second seasons have arrived a month or so apart on two of the biggest streaming platforms, Amazon Prime and Netflix respectively. They’re very different, yet both based on alternative comics that have come from neither […] More

    It’s Back to the Future with The Umbrella Academy in Season 2

    Well, Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy certainly didn’t disappoint. So much transpired, especially towards the end of the series, that’s it’s hard to decide where to begin discussing it. Events were kicked up a notch and that’s saying something considering what unfolded in the first season. As each member of the family reunited with […] More

    Now It’s Raining More Than Ever, We Need The Umbrella Academy

    I feel like the The Umbrella Academy was the unsung hero of TV shows from last year. Adapted brilliantly from the Dark Horse comics by Gerard Way (of My Chemical Romance fame) and Gabriel Bá, it was popular but didn’t receive nearly enough credit for my liking, as it was one of the best series […] More

    Joy Division Give So Much More Than Their Namesake

    I recently wrote an article on The Velvet Underground and Nico and how it was the soundtrack when I was coming of age. If that was the album that informed my teenage years, Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures was what helped shape my early 20s. The band had been on my radar for a long time […] More

    The Triforce of Zelda Games in Lockdown

    Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask and Twilight Princess are three Legend of Zelda titles that have a line that runs through them in both form and content. To me, they’ll always be the Triforce of Zelda games. Wind Waker was released in between the last two but differs in many ways, mostly due to its […] More

    Beneath Every Pop Sound, Lies The Velvet Underground

    My journey to The Velvet Underground began with The Beatles, oddly enough. Firstly, I’m not a fan. I appreciate what they did and have a lot of respect for them but they’re not for me. My older brother was obsessed with them when he first discovered music, they were his first love. He played all […] More
