Bertie and Lionel

Unsurprisingly, whether or not a movie has received an Academy Award (or Oscar if you will ) is not necessarily a good measure for the quality of the piece when you consider how many crappy movies have gotten the little golden bugger over the years, but occasionally the jury proves at least a tiny bit […]

Symmetry Disorder!

One of my many little brain glitches is a slight pedantic tendency coupled with a symmetry disorder, which makes me on some days a difficult person to be around and at times is driving me mad myself. You know, when you are doing the wash and folding up T-Shirts and it just won’t fold – […]

No Rehab for Amy!

Jazz, Funk and Soul are rather strange worlds to me, as I never quite got hooked beyond the songs you hear on radio, yet they somehow are always there.
