Worth checking out their YouTube channel


A site that collate book reviews from multiple sources to see if they are recommended, similar to RottenTomatoes or MetaCritic but for books


Last week choreographer Elizabeth Streb had a day of performances in London with her dance troupe. Her work is very physical and incredibly spectacular. I’m hoping there will be a documentary about the day at some point during the Olympics (am I allowed to say the O word?) as I would like to see some of the pieces in full, at the moment the there just seem to be short snippets around youtube.

Moviedrome Archive

If you are of a certain age then you will probably remember Moviedrome. It was a late night series of films presented by Alex Cox. It was home to unusual, interesting and occasionally awful films. If nothing else they were films that should be watched by any discerning film fan.

Luckily there is an archive listing all shown films courtesy of Kurtodrome available at

Kutrodrome also has good film blog at

Second time seeing this band and they were magnificent. Technically brilliant musicians with incredible songs.

A great review here

And a video from from two days before when they played Graspop Festival


A video showing 2D Platform/3D First Person Shooter Hybrid.
