Dave Chappelle, Hannah Gadsby, and the Offended Masses
Well, I honestly thought that the whole controversy over Dave Chappelle's new Netflix special, The Closer, would have blown over by now. But, it seems that it's still front and center in the media, and getting spicier. Why? Probably because the media likes it that way.

Movie Review: 'South of Heaven' Starring Jason Sudeikis
Annie (Evangeline Lilly) is dying. Annie has lung cancer and has been given between 9 and 12 months before her life ends. The diagnosis is recent enough that she got it just before her long term fiancé, 12 years to be precise, Jimmy Ray (Jason Sudeikis) was to go in front of a parole board. Jimmy has spent almost the entirety of their engagement behind bars. It might seem convenient when he tells of Annie’s prognosis in front of the parole board but what you come to find out about Jimmy Ray is that bad luck and timing are a big part of his life.
The Best 'Game of Thrones' Scenes
I realised that something I do when I'm drinking alone is watch my favourite scenes from 'Game of Thrones' and marvel at how brilliant they are, but it had never occurred to me to write about them. I, like many, thought the show dropped in quality after it stopped being based on the books, but although I do think that Benioff and Weiss were poor when it came to making the narrative themselves, they were masters in the art of adaptation, and that is something I've made clear here in some of the scenes I've chosen. I also might disappoint a lot of people because I haven't included any scenes from the night's watch/beyond-the-wall narrative or the Daenerys Targaryen narrative. That isn't because I didn't enjoy those storylines, I just always found the Westeros narrative far superior, and was disappointed that the potential that was there in those other two narratives never really took off. I will have to give an honourable mention to the birth of the dragons, which is an epic ending to the first season (which, as a season overall, I think is the best one), but that scene, brilliant as it is, just reminds me that it was part of a narrative with so much potential that was ruined tremendously in the last couple of seasons. Not including these storylines might annoy a lot of readers, but that would require there to be a lot of readers, which I imagine there won't be given I do not work for a big Journalistic outlet much as I'd like to. Anyway, after much deliberation, I've narrowed my favourite moments down to 5. Here goes:
Christopher Robin: We don’t want to grow up, we don’t want to be complicated
In recent years, Disney plans to change many animations into live-action movies, and Winnie the Pooh’s live-action version of "Christopher Robin" was released recently. To be honest, I am not very interested in most of Disney's animations or live-action movies, but watching After the story preview and introduction of "Christopher Robin", it seemed that there was a kind of magic that attracted me, so even though I was under pressure these days, I chose to watch it today.
Rawhide Fun Facts
Just the facts For those of younger generations, Rawhide might only mean the song that John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd sang in their 1980 hit movie The Blues Brothers. The original theme song was from Rawhide, the American Western television series that aired on CBS on Friday nights, from January 9, 1959, to September 3, 1965. It moved to Tuesday nights from September 14, 1965, until January 4, 1966. The theme song was sung by Frankie Laine and still sends chills down the spine of longtime fans.
Movie Suggestions For Your Zodiac Sign
A good movie can move us, inspire us, or leave us curious for days to come. It's kind of romantic the way we choose a movie. I mean, deep down, no matter what mood we're in, we all have a type or genre that we choose each time. Even if you're feeling like watching a comedy that day, if you're a Scorpio, you're probably still going to watch a dark comedy...

A Filmmaker's Guide: "Belle De Jour" (1967)
In this chapter of ‘the filmmaker’s guide’ we’re actually going to be learning about literature and film together. I understand that many of you are sitting in university during difficult times and finding it increasingly hard to study and I understand that many of you who are not at university or not planning on it are possibly stuck of what to do, need a break or even need to catch up on learning film before you get to the next level. This guide will be brief but will also contain: new vocabulary, concepts and theories, films to watch and we will be exploring something taboo until now in the ‘filmmaker’s guide’ - academia (abyss opens). Each article will explore a different concept of film, philosophy, literature or bibliography/filmography etc. in order to give you something new to learn each time we see each other. You can use some of the words amongst family and friends to sound clever or you can get back to me (email in bio) and tell me how you’re doing. So, strap in and prepare for the filmmaker’s guide to film studies because it is going to be one wild ride.

Brutal Kunnin by Mike Brooks
This is perhaps one of the best Warhammer books I have ever read, and Mike Brooks has demonstrated what is perhaps so uniquely enjoyable about this fictitious universe. This is, of course, the innate chaos (not to be confused with Chaos) of the 40k universe and how even those with great personal power can be brought low on the whim and scheming of various individuals. And oh boy, is there a lot of the latter in Brutal Kunnin.
The Art of Natalie Galindo
The Art of Natalie Galindo *** What is Art? Art has been philosophized through time, by artists and viewers, by civilizations and cultures, beyond many interpretations, countless systems of value and diverse critical analysis. Although there may be too many ways to define it, interpret it, and even frame their multiple meanings, there are constants which submerge from our awareness; objective factors that we mark with our subjective understanding in order to progress into the future of our creations.
