It was an incredibly interesting recording, and I was obviously very excited to have my question picked. Also a lot of Disney soundtracks, Jack Johnson, inappropriate…

Watching Masterchef and The Office. I also went to see Richard Ayoade’s new film The Double. As it’s an adaptation of a Dostoyevsky novella it’s fairly dark and brooding, but it’s a real audiovisual treat and certainly left me with lots to think about. In particularly loved the use of sound, as well as music, throughout. I would definitely recommend…

Watching Masterchef –  the return of Tim and Shelina made me pretty excited. My sister made me watch Frozen and I flipping loved it. I’m not normally very bothered by Disney films, but I really liked the messages in Frozen, which were a move away from the usual ‘you need a man’.  Listening to Obviously the Frozen soundtrack, which is also a strong…

This week I got a little behind – I’m back now though with lots of posts for this week! Watching I’ve been completely over-excited about the start of Masterchef, soothed and amused by too many episodes of Adventure Time and ever-so-slightly sobbing over the final season of How I Met your Mother.  Listening to Amy Winehouse, Athlete and A Milli. Yep, apparently…

It made me realise that whilst I wanted to buy the real life copy, I…

Watching Modern Family and the Hairy Bikers’ Asian Adventure. I love that they made their own miso and that it’s the fashion in Japan at the moment – it seems that going back to homemade is a global trend. Listening to Apparently my Disclosure and Fleetwood Mac phase hasn’t stopped yet. I’m also listening to a whole load of radio dramas….
