Holiday Reading to Sink Your Teeth Into!

OK, so only one of my reads had actual teeth sinking, (OK, two if you count monsters taking a chunk out of someone’s shoulder, or three if you include demons from Hades, OK, so actually only one didn’t…) but it was a cool headline, nonetheless. I love reading, and have

Stop LARPing About!

Review by Samuel Z Jones We said it, we warned you, if you don’t suggest a headline, we’ll continue to make them up.  So, just to change it up a bit, in character blue, out of character dull grey, editorial comments pink. We like pink. Fourth Event, a year of

Music Review: Ferocious Dog – Live

Review by Samuel Z Jones An eccentric venue for an unusual band; this Friday 13th, Ferocious Dog played the Talking Heads in Southampton. Revolutionary lyrics, punk fury and screaming guitars, drawn into anarchic harmony by an electric violin. It works. I’ve never actually seen crowd-surfing in a local venue before.

Badger’s Eurovision Round Up, Part Deux

Well, we said if you asked we would, and we are true to our word.  Amadeus said the following: Hello Badger, I liked the songs of Italy and Belguim too. Please let me know what you thought of those songs? And what about Australia to enter the competition? Thanks big
