Bar Social, Clapham Junction: "This is what we do"



January 13, 2013

I was recently in Clapham Junction, on a bit of a pub crawl, when one of my stops lead me into a pub called: Bar Social. The first thing that I was told there was that they did not carry any Jack Daniel's, which forced me into putting Jameson into my drink. This on it's own is little of a problem, but it was combined with a soundtrack provided by the bar's playlist that was definitely in no way entertaining. When finally a new low was reached by the first notes of Oasis' Wonderwall, I decided to go back up to the bar, and asked them—nicely—if they could skip this one track.

Tim Burton, predictable and boring



December 20, 2012

Tim Burton has yet another movie made with Johnny Depp. Umpteenth in the series, I suspected from the moment I saw the trailer, the usual format would stand, and there would be little new to be discovered.

I used to dislike Tim Burton just because every time in his movies I saw a chimney, it was the same chimney as the movie before. Now I dislike him even more because he makes his format so obvious.

Winter solstice art: the dark night rises



December 23, 2012
