You’ll have to forgive me for leaving you without an AMV this week (let’s pretend you care) but I have been lackadaisical about this post (I still have to write a review for Norwegian Wood despite seeing it a week ago).That said, here’s one of the best music videos I have ever seen. The best. Like, ever.
The only way I would ever learn about Palaeolithic cave art would be through a film narrated by Werner Herzog. Not necessarily my cup of tea but through the beauty of the images and Herzog’s narration it became an absorbing journey involving the concept of time, reality and perception. And the 3D is awesome.

SUBMARINE has been earning major praise since last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The name of the director, Richard Ayoade (Moss from the IT Crowd), was a bit surprising. Whilst he has directed music videos for Vampire Weekend and television including Garth Merenghi’s Dark Place and Man to Man with Dean Learner, his film debut with Submarine is surprisingly good.

It’s hard being a gamer. You pay a lot of money for a game that can last from six to sixty hours and hope it entertains.

During the fall-out over the Iraq conflict there was a small story involving the White House exposing a CIA agent because her husband spoke out against the war. I ignored it because it didn’t seem too important. Actually it was very important illustrating how politics can manipulate intelligence work to disastrous effect. Fair Game is based on this story and is an extremely well-made film that tells a valuable story with two brilliant performances from Naomi Watts and Sean Penn.
14th February was Valentine’s Day which was a day for women to buy men chocolate. 14th of March is White Day and is considered a day that men are supposed to return favours received from women on Valentine’s Day. Continue reading
An earthquake Registering 8.9 on the Richter Scale hit off the coast of Honshu, Japan’s main island. I’m watching the BBC which is showing people scrambling out of buildings just missing getting hit by debris. Thankfully, Japanese buildings have been built to withstand earthquakes but news is still grim.
