At long last the time is Grime

Jan
15

The changing of the guard that saw us enter 2017 from a year notorious for how it inflicted tragedy on the famous, is a significant moment to reflect on how far the genre of Grime or UK Hip-Hop as it has been mistakenly referred to, has come. 2016 again was a year of excellence for Grime as without fail new and exciting talent continued to emerge from London streets with an appetite for success and crucially with an understanding of how to get it.

Why LaLa Land isn't the best film of the year

Jan
15

I went to watch Damien Chazelle’s latest feature film with my mother earlier this week. I had heard nothing but praise for the film; critics have given the musical romance stellar reviews, my Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram are flooded — and I really do mean FLOODED — with friends declaring their love for it, and a week ago, the movie set a record for most Golden Globes won by a single film. It is a favourite to win Best Picture at the Oscar’s later this year.

Bloggers vs 'Real' Journalists.

Jan

Before I start this blog, I realised when I thought of the idea and my points that it may be a bit controversial which is exactly why I chose to continue and write it. So, I am not apologising for my opinions because that’s just how I feel. Okay, now we are all on the same page I’ll begin.

It is used to express thoughts and feelings, representing freedom of speech is made in texting form.

I Am Sherlocked

Jan
15

So, I need to write a blog. Everyone else seems to dissect the inner workings of political debates or take on important real life issues. Unfortunately, I’m a 20-year-old man baby and all I do is watch TV so I’m going to look ahead to tonight’s Sherlock finale and predict what may happen.

This may contain spoilers but probably not because I’m not that clever.

Is a little known German football club about to ruin football for everyone ?

Jan
15

 

19 years ago, FC Kaiserslautern stunned the world by winning the German Top Division after being promoted the previous season. The championship win was a true football fairy tale. Otto Rehhagel’s team stunned everyone by beating European giants Bayern Munich and Bourissa Dortmund to the Bundesliga crown. Championship wins such as FCK’s and more recently Leicester City’s 2015/2016 Premier League victory are what football is all about.

Are Original Films Dead?

Jan
15

I love my blockbuster movies. Who doesn’t? The thrill of watching films from the Harry Potter series or going to the cinema to watch the latest instalment in the Star Wars saga or Marvel Cinematic Universe is something I highly enjoy, as do the millions of us who flock to the big screens every year. But when was the last time the levels of anticipation and hype for a franchise film like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story or Captain America: Civil War, felt for an original film?

Home is where the heart and/or mind and/or soul is

Jan

Like many people the world over I started my Christmas break on a plane. After a few days in London, I was heading back to Denmark to spend Christmas with my family. A week later, I was on another plane. This time to Austria to take up my winter job as a ski instructor. 20 days later, and I am once again in an airport. This time heading to England to continue my studies. As my Austrian colleagues asked me whether I was heading home, I nodded and then shrugged. Actually, I do not really know.

Trumped up

Jan
15

Now, I dislike Donald Trump as much as the next person. I believe he’s bigoted, arrogant, foolish, and will make a poor leader, potentially even a dangerous one. And I, much like congressman John Lewis doubt his legitimacy and find it unsurprising that accusations of foul play and Russian involvement in his election have come to the fore. On balance, the accusations may be true.
