Covering the Beatles is always a gamble. As is a new DC film (boom boom). I’m saying that Gary Clark Jr pulls it off in serious style. Though, given how angry he looks in the video, I’d say that even if it weren’t true.
One afternoon in 2009, out of nowhere, a peacock arrived in my parents’ garden. I ‘borrowed’ Dad’s Canon 1000D and managed to grab a few interesting shots.
Planning your shots around the rotation and orbit of the earth sounds really, really cool. Alyn Wallace does that for fun and the results are spectacular.
Obviously, everyone knows that cancer is awful but aside from it being a killer, I’d never fully stopped to consider why. People die from all kinds of diseases but there are few that engender such disgust and hatred as cancer.
Aaron Franklin, owner of the legendary Austin smokehouse Franklin Barbecue, has written the supreme guide to meat smoking – read my review.
You always said “life’s not fair” and today more so than ever before I know you were right.
Too early for the first Christmas tweet? I think not. This week it’s dangerous reindeer, angry birds, politics and Brian Blessed.
Jesse Ware has a naturally fantastic voice and her deeply honest, insightful, soul-searching single ‘Sam’ is simply brilliant.
194 days on I feel unsettlingly numb. It’s not denial-I know he’s gone. What I think hasn’t changed, my emotional reaction to it has and it’s uncomfortable.
Is Word Gets Around the best Stereophonics album ever? I think it might just be. Though I wouldn’t like to choose between it and Performance and Cocktails. So the answer is yes, but also no.
No Good from Kaleo is an all-out brilliant rock song. It’s got the riff, the heavy beat, some sweet solos and vocals to shred your vocal chords for.
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, blended expertly by T-Bone Burnett to create a once in a lifetime recording. It’s moody, haunting and just down-right brilliant.
If you don’t believe in love, romance and passion, this song might just change your mind. The lyrics are beautiful, Hawley’s guitar has the most fantastic amount of reverb, and the chord progressions soar upwardly like a stairway to the stars.
A new find this week in @nudinits which is the single greatest use of knitting. It’s always tough to beat the great wordsmith @brian_bilston, but I think the winner this week is @CrowfootJim, because I am a child.
Rach Stewart’s are some of the finest, most consistent examples of insightful, artistic, story-telling photography. I strongly suggest you check them out.
