If you were looking for the perfect song that summed up office-based banality, a track that should easily be in the running is Fountains of Wayne’s ‘Hey Julie’.

‘Stranger Things’ – How Winona Got Her Groove Back

  ‘Winona Forever’ goes the slogan. Immortalised by a generation raised on the Gothic glamour of Beetlejuice, it was also the phrase that was, ironically, temporarily etched onto the arm of eccentric movie alternahunk Johnny Depp. Even more ironically, such a statement – delivered in honour of Winona Ryder – hasn’t exactly rang true, for […]Read More

Why I love Ugly Betty and Why You Should Too

Ugly Betty. What does that mean to you? This was a question I considered when I embarked upon my journey of binge-watching all four seasons of this American comedy from start to finish.

It was announced last week that Jeremy Clarkson was to be dismissed from the BBC, following the widespread investigation into a “fracas” between the presenter and a Top Gear producer.
