We’ve tested some brilliant vehicles in the last 12 months (and a few not so great), my favourite though is perhaps one you wouldn’t expect.
David Fincher’s (Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network) English language remake of Stieg Larsson’s Swedish crime novel is sleeker, smoother and more action centred than it’s Scandinavian predecessor.
There has been some great music around this year, here is our writers favourite records and live shows of the past 12 months.
Nothing can kill a movie like hype, luckily I saw Submarine before anyone told me it was good, so if you haven’t seen it, forget you ever read this and then watch it. You’ll enjoy it much more.
It sounds like it was either recorded around the Pablo Honey / The Bends period, or the band have decided to go back to guitars and songs again. Either way it’s pretty good and definitely worth a listen
It seems like designer Orla Kiely is everywhere at the moment. After making her name in the world of bags and hats, she’s expanded into a number of different areas including Clothing, Wallpaper and Fragrances. Now she’s moved on to 50’s inspired radios.
There’s no denying that 2011 has been an absolutely colossal year for video games, we asked Henry McMunn to give us a run down of some of the best.
The HTC Rhyme available in 2 colours ‘Clearwater’ and ‘Plum’. From the looks of things the one I have (a sort of purple pinkish colour) is geared towards the fairer of the species!
If you’ve come across Pro-Gamer MrsViolence you were probably staring down the barrel of her MP412 REX pistol.
There are disproportionately many bands of all shapes and sizes for its size, and pubs. Markets selling cupcakes and handmade buttons and cushions with moustachio’d bears on them….. New band Olympians talk about life in Norwich.
Inspired by the world’s most challenging sailing event, the V60 Volvo Ocean Race D3 is more elegant than sexy but oozes sophistication. It’s a proper ‘grown up’ car.
Bush Hall felt like a Christmas occasion, bathed in a soft red glow. Tim taking to the stage in dinner jacket, and Emmy wearing a floor length gown holding sleigh bells delicately like a glass of vintage wine.
Featuring the music of Metal Gods such as Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister, Poison and Asia, ‘Rock of Ages’ could be in the running for one the best or worst films ever made (not sure which yet).
Oxford band Alphabet Backwards have just released a new three track EP British Explorer and it’s great. They’ve been getting some good radio play recently and this is the video of the main song from the EP, Taller.
