  • I don’t normally devote my blogs to film reviews as such, but I just watched what I can simply describe as one of the most disturbingly hypnotic movies I have seen in a while. Strictly speaking this is not a […]

    • I have to say Jules…..you REALLY need to do more movie reviews. You got me hooked. I am going to sign off now because I found the movie somewhere on my TV and I am going to start watching it.

      No pizza in site 😉

      Last year it was Neil Peart (RUSH) – this year Charlie Watts.

      He was one Stone I imagined would roll on forever.

      • I was just thinking about all these old bands that seem to have the gift of longevity. Truly….”Roll on forever” is what I was thinking too.

  • Yes many people are vaccinated but with the new variants being spread I still don’t feel safe doing things I love. Like a LIVE concert. Sitting in a restaurant with friends. Though I have been to their houses […]

    • These types of post are still relevant – Covid has gone nowhere and is still here.
      The one thing I still miss the most is being able to go anywhere without fear of infection – even if it’s a jaunt to my local town centre of Epsom. Last year during the height of the pandemic I sold my car because it had been sitting there going nowhere, so rather than keep paying for something I was not able to use I let it go. I actually ventured out to the hospital for a blood test last week – first time out since last year, but in all honesty things may look normal out there but deep down I still feel there is danger for the vulnerable. There is talk over here of offering certain people a 3rd jab! People are still getting infected, and people are still dying. . .an end is not yet in sight.

      • Here too…third jab. But they did approve the 3rd one for the vulnerable. Apparently people have already been getting it by being sneaky or creative…depending on how you look at it. I have the 2 Pfizer doses….but I was pondering looking for a location that is giving the Johnson and Johnson which is 1 jab. So that could be my 3rd. I shall ponder it longer….since I have the time to ponder.
        YOU SOLD YOUR CAR? That is what keeps me sane. Being able to go for drives…..going to the beach after everyone leaves….its nice being to just hop in and drive. Well….when my head isn’t spinning that is

  • Absolutely enjoy this show. I know I caught the band wagon for this show a few years late ☺️. I think I enjoy this show so much because its about the behind the scenes world of these talented artist. Getting an […]

      This is one of those shows that I’ve heard about but never seen – presumably because it isn’t available here on the other side of the pond. I’ll check to see if it’s on Amazon Prime.

      And while we’re on the subject. . .watched a film last night (on Amazon) called “I think we’re alone now.” It stars Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning. The plot is simple and rather relevant in this time period: Del (Dinklage) spends his day walking deserted streets checking houses for dead bodies after a global pandemic wiped out 99.9 % of the Human race. One night he is woken by a firework display some distance from the library where he lives. The next morning he ventures out and finds a car with a young girl who has passed out (Fanning). Grace has a terrible tale to tell but never finds the words to do so. As their relationship develops an unexpected situation props up and comes with answers that Grace has never let out.

      This is a very good Indi-film and well worth a look.

      My film of the week!

      ps: when I logged on this morning it was wonderful to have no spam to deal with 🙂

      • I think Mozart in the Jungle would be more appealing to the Artsy type. Art in all its forms is relatable. ” I think were alone now”….I will add that to my list.
        I didnt miss zapping those spammers. But there wasn’t too much so I can’t really complain
