That’s entertainment

Movies, music, telly and anything else that might be deemed entertaining (possibly Tasers)

The missing link

Wondering where all the book reviews have gone? They now have their very own home at Books By George. I’ll be tweaking the site over the next few weeks but don’t let that put you off. Oh, and I’m thinking I might just give this site a wee makeover some time soon. Should the monkeys stay or go?

Do You Wanna … what?

I’m not a great fan of Glee I figure, which shouldn’t come as any great surprise since I’m probably 30 years too old to be in the show’s target audience range. So for that reason, I won’t offer any sort of critique of the TV program in general because I have watched just two episodes since it hit our screens (and only then because a friend insisted it was the best thing she’d seen in a long...

Where has the time gone

I remember so vividly hearing the news that John Lennon had been murdered that I almost can’t get my head around the fact that it’s been 30 years. He wrote one of my two all-time favourite songs (Beautiful Boy).

West bumbled his way through most...

Updated: Just magic

I’d have posted this sooner but we didn’t get back to the hotel until late … and we’re no spring chickens now, are we? Anyway, Leonard Cohen. What can I say except brilliant. The concert was amazing, his voice, his band, his words and his pure  joy at doing what he does so well made it an event to remember. Even a little microphone malfunction during Everybody Knows didn’t cause  any real dramas …...

My shit list gets a new entry

Congratulations TV3, you have made the grade. Again. Yes, you suck. Like something really sucky. I still haven’t forgiven you idiots for the whole Dexter debacle (you know, when they ran Dexter for just a few episodes in a non-primetime slot, decided it wasn’t rating well enough so pulled it). Now, we’ve got the Top Chef debacle. This is where they ran it for a few episodes, decided it wasn’t rating well enough so...
