Throwback Thursday: In The Morning // Razorlight

Indie rockers Razorlight might have scored their No. 1 with the single ‘America’ but our favourite song is ‘In The Morning’. The guitar licks have a distinct 2006 quality to them, and it’s the saccharine pop factor to the track which makes it impossible not to sing into your hairbrush as you’re getting ready, which […]Read More

Super Happy Fun America: The Myth of Straight Pride

This week, a Boston-based group, Super Happy Fun America, applied for a permit with the City of Boston to host a ‘Straight Pride Parade’, so named because, as the group believes, straight people are amongst an oppressed majority.

TV: UK vs US Part 3: The Inbetweeners and The

In the first two entries in this series, I talked about the American adaptations of The Office and House of Cards, and what has made them successful, while so many attempts at bringing shows across the Atlantic have utterly failed. These shows were able to find a unique and original voice while maintaining key elements […]Read More
