  1. It got a 5/5 from me. Going to Brighton to see them in a couple of months. Better still... They're playing the Academy in Glasgow on November 26th. Tickets onsale Friday! TicketWeb
  2. The Life of David Gale Not bad. Not great, but not bad. However, don't think I've ever spotted an ending so far off.
  3. That is properly, glaringly brilliant. I can't wait to hear what you've done with Turn The Lights Down and The Brakes.
  4. When one of my friends lived in student accommodation, one of their flatmates was reportedly an utter arsehole. After some particularly arsehole-ish conduct, they retaliated by taking "his" drawer from the kitchen, filling it with water and putting it in the freezer. They left it there a while, and then replaced it in the unit. Cue the boy going to get a fork / knife / spoon from the drawer, pulling it out of the cabinet and staring down at his cutlery frozen in a block of ice, in the drawer.
  5. I happened on He's Just Not That Into You last night as it was starting. Fully appreciating that I most likely am not its target demographic, I decided to start watching it anyway. I gave up after about 45 minutes. The fact it was based on a self-help book makes me decidedly uneasy. It portrayed all the female characters in it as woefully insecure, co-dependent stereotypes who couldn't carry out day-to-day tasks without male attention, and the lead person (who you were obviously supposed to sympathise with) as a completely charmless, passive-obsessive lunatic. Completely and utterly devoid of redeeming features. * In other news, I saw The Joneses at the cinema yesterday too, which I thought was pretty good. A weird mixture of humour and seriousness, and if you can once get into the vaguely implausible storyline it's pretty enjoyable. ***1/2
  6. Gotcha. See, because all I'd seen in terms of live footage was a similar setup to what he had on Tuesday, I didn't really expect anything different. Now I've seen that, I'm pretty keen to see him with a more elaborate setup too though, just to see how it differs.
  7. Watched Gran Torino this morning and am cursing myself for not watching it sooner. Great stuff.
  8. THE XCERTS on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads On first couple of listens, I wasn't convinced. I'm liking it a lot now. Think the Brand New influence is pretty striking.
  9. Loving this first couple of times through, especially Terrible Love, Bloodbuzz Ohio and Runaway. Gasping to see this band, toying with heading to Latitude for the friday for them and Richard Hawley.
  10. I thought The Blind Side was okay, but I thought that Big Mike's character wasn't developed at all, and that started to annoy me a bit. He was just like a big mute who stottered around their house looking perpetually sad. Not bad on the whole though. I saw Crying With Laughter yesterday at the Belmont, which is about an Edinburgh-based comedian who goes off the rails, and is taken in by an old school friend until he gets himself sorted out. Turns out 'friend' has an ulterior motive. Good viewing in general, although there was a ten minute spell near the end that I could barely bring myself to watch. Would definitely recommend it though. Hoping to catch The Ghost this week, and Greenberg and Gentlemens Broncos in the next couple. I also watched There Will Be Blood this morning, which I thought was pretty ace, although I thought it was paced quite badly, and suffered from a bit of a lull about halfway through. BRILLIANT ending, though.
  11. Cheers pal, was just wondering what happened to it
  12. All the best for these shows lads. That poster looks class too.
  13. Steven, did that song 'Change' you played at the Mambos gig ever find a home? That was a belter.
  14. Any Murder by Death fans in? Streaming new album "Good Morning, Magpie" here. Murder By Death – Good Morning, Magpie | Front Porch Musings One of my favourite bands. This is a little more upbeat / optimistic than the last few records, but it's a solid batch of tunes. Think I'll have to head to the Tuts show in June. Anyway, thoughts?
