Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

By | April 2nd, 2020|bullshit, cinema, literature|

COVID-19 has certainly brought more television into my life. Some of it good, some of it not so good. A friend suggested Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency to me on the weekend 'if I liked something a bit quirky.' I bought the first episode of Series 1 on iTunes to get a sense of whether [...]

The Peanut Butter Falcon – a story of friendship and compassion

By | February 8th, 2020|cinema|

The French sign-off 'tendrement' is the quality of my mood after seeing the most beautiful and amazing movie - The Peanut Butter Falcon, at Cinema Nova this afternoon. It was a little emotionally challenging at the beginning. I wasn't sure what kind of B-grade piece of daytime television it was going to be. But the [...]

Television has landed in my world

By | July 20th, 2019|cinema|

The 1950s has come to the Pipeldoot household tonight, hehe. It was weird to see one of my school mates reporting on the national ABC news! Interesting though to have a television in my house for the first time in at least four years. Miso was encouraging me to get it set up. While others [...]

Balloon (2018) – German Film Festival

By | June 8th, 2019|cinema|

Few movies grip you with terror from the first few scenes and hold you there for 2 hours and 15 minutes. Balloon, directed by Michael Herbig and written by Kit Hopkins, Thilo Röscheisen and Michael Herbig, was one of the best films I have ever seen. The fear for the lives of the Strelzyk family [...]

Three Colours White – Krzysztof Kieslowski

By | January 30th, 2019|bullshit, cinema|

What are your top 10 favourite films of all time? One of my favourite collections of cinema was the Three colours trilogy. Julie Delphy was so beautiful in Three Colours White, although I am not sure that she was in the happiest of relationships in that film! Three Colours Blue with Juliette Binoche was also [...]

An alien chemical fire – Back to the Start – Monarchy

By | January 14th, 2019|cinema, interesting people, music, physical theatre|

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOZhFf_Jc9g 'Back to the Start' from Monarchy was released on video in the past few days. The first time I watched it, I considered it an insult of sorts to the girl (Celia Sastre). However, on second and subsequent viewings, I became interested in what Ra and Andrew were teaching this, obviously, alien girl about [...]

Back to the Start – January 11th 2019 – Monarchy

By | January 8th, 2019|cinema, music|

I am super excited to spruik the upcoming single release from Monarchy! It looks so incredibly INTERESTING. From what I have seen so far, I love the tonal aspects of the blues they have used in the video clip, and it seems like a very visually interesting piece of work. Not to mention the quality [...]
