Perhaps, all of us love those lazy days when we just lie in our beds, eat snacks, and watch movies or TV shows. And while some would agree that this kind of leisure is not very productive, to say the least, it can benefit you if you approach it appropriately.

By watching great classic films in foreign languages, you can seriously develop your language skills without even noticing it.
The video for Michael Pinder’s latest single, ‘Soar’, shot by Rob Fitzgerald, captures him in a beautiful setting – it’s northern California, so it’s raining; he’s not the main character however, he’s merely the narrator, telling the story of a woman’s journey from resignation to overwhelming confidence.

Sun & Flesh know that hard rock is all about making sharp snaps between clean and dirty sounds; the juxtaposition of heavy and light, comfort and terror that makes the best rock songs, well, rock.

Roberto Domino Basile has the certain skill of being able to put together a formidable arrangement. He’s enlisted the help of many breath-taking singers, such as Katie Jade, whose voice empowers ‘Preciosa’, and ‘Silent Fire’, and Cristina Caro, who puts in a spine-tingling performance on ‘0-1 September’.
Last week marked the 20 Year Anniversary of the nail bomb attack at The Admiral Duncan in Soho, and there was a little vigil held for the occasion. As always, I’d double booked myself and was unable to stay around the vigil for too long but I popped by, saw some Soho locals and took some pictures. A quaint and sweet little event with such an important memory of the injustices that the LGBT community have experienced & in some cases…still experience.
