This year has been absolute gash in comparison to any year ever in my life. Like a vaccine to a virus, a bag of cans to a thirsty hooligan, music has helped to sooth my aliments.
In no particular order, here are my top ten albums of the year, 2020.
Let us begin…
LANY - mama’s boy
So, it’s been a hot minute and with plenty of time to watch content through this disastrous start to the twenties’s, here I am, back with a blog post.
The Morning Show, one of Apple’s first original shows on their newest platform, Apple TV+, has been my latest binge. It’s a ‘high-stakes drama that pulls back the curtain on the morning news.’ Over the past three days (I like to binge and breath, I just don’t know how people can sit and binge whole shows in one day), I’ve soaked in the wonderment that is the first season. …
Usually I check into this sparsely used blog for a rundown of my favourite new albums of the last year. 2019 is no exception. However, this time, I’ve got ten bangers rather than 8.
Foals – Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1

This will come as no surprise, but Lucy and I went to the cinema the other week. This time however, we went to see something which is rather different to the typically whitewashed Hollywood flicks we tend to see on the silver screen; Jon M. Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians.
It’s 2018, it’s August, it’s been too long since I last reviewed anything in type form.
Yesterday evening, Lucy and I sat ourselves down in front of the silver screen; with shop bought popcorn and a Tango Ice Blast (mixed flavours, of course). To see the much anticipated sequel/prequel to Phyllida Lloyd’s 2008, ABBA orientated, musical spectacular, Mamma Mia!.
As a firm believer that Mamma Mia! (2008) is a seminal art piece, based on songs from one of the best four-pieces to ever grace our airwaves, I must say that I really was expecting the world from the sequel.
So, I know it’s been like seven months since I last did a blog post, but everyone gets writers block / busy. This here is a review of one of Netflix’s latest original films; War Machine, a satirical American war film written and directed by
