Though many have tried, few have accurately translated Christmas into enjoyable and relatable entertainment. There are vast amounts of Christmas Films and Television Specials out there, but not all of them are entertaining and not all of them are relevant in our contemporary society. So if you’re tired […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?
Artist, Caricaturist, Critic, And Counterculturist. Sorting the wheat from the celebrity chaff since 2012...
Responsible for six albums with the group Boogie Down Productions, eleven solo releases and numerous collaborative albums, “Now Hear This” is KRS One’s twelfth solo record, and with around thirty years of his life devoted to Hip-Hop, I’m glad that he’s still releasing not only entertaining, but credible […]
The 80’s were a time of opposites; there was Reganomics, the crack epidemic, Thatcher, Yuppies, and Cold War scaremongering, and yet at the same time it was a great decade for kid’s films, computer games, and music. WarGames was a fantastically well-suited convergence of this fear and entertainment […]
Known for his gritty, sometimes eerie, echoing sounds, Kirk Knight has been responsible for producing some of Pro Era’s best music including Joey Bada$$‘ “Big Dusty” and “Hazeus View”. As a Pro Era fan I had high hopes for Knight’s début album, but after listening to “Late Knight […]
It is extremely rare for a film with B-Movie aesthetics to be a timeless classic, it’s even more rare when a film which contains corny one-liners is important to cinema and society. John Carpenter’s They Live is just that; an oxymoronic, crude yet brilliant science fiction masterpiece, and […]
It’s rare these days for a Hollywood movie to be anything other than a reboot, a remake, or a merchandise tie-in blockbuster, so when something like “Nightcrawler” comes around it’s surprising to see the public not breathing a collective breath of fresh air as they descend on their […]
A year after their impressive début album and two and a half years after their outstanding début mixtape, Issa Gold and AK bring us “Evermore: The Art Of Duality”, and with this sophomore studio album The Underachievers bring us a slightly more mature sound and a deeper concept. […]
Richard D. Hall is an Engineer, IT Consultant, and U.F.O. researcher, and his programme “Rich Planet TV” (previously know as “RichPlanet.Net” and “The Rich Planet Starship”) began airing in the UK during the mid-to-late noughties on Edge Media Television and then later on Information TV, Showcase TV, and […]
“12 Angry Men” is one of the greatest movies ever made and in my opinion it comes close to being a perfect film. The story centres around the twelve jurors of a murder case as they deliberate over the guilt or innocence of an eighteen year old boy […]
Ever since the Hip-Hop genre began, Rap collectives have been an integral part of the art-form. Hip-Hop groups such as The Furious Five and The Juice Crew in the 80’s and the Boot Camp Clik and Wu-Tang Clan in the 90’s showed that a varied mix of skills […]
Back in the early nineties, West Coast Gangsta Rap ruled Hip-Hop music, but once the sub-genre began to feel stagnant, Hip-Hop required some new blood and an injection of new ideas. In 1993 that’s just what it got; along with the Wu-Tang Clan, the Boot Camp Clik’s lead […]
NHK World is a strangely captivating channel, it may be located amongst all the news channels in your programme guide, but the majority of the time NHK airs special interest broadcasts such as documentaries, travelogues, fashion, technology, and cooking shows. If you tune in you’ll be introduced to […]
For the past few years Raz Fresco has been making some great music, and if you heard his “Screwface Tape” a year ago then like me you’ll be waiting for his début album “Pablo Frescobar” to drop. The album is released today on Duck Down, home of the […]
