“This time, I’m gonna be stronger/I’m not givin’ in”
When Rudimental first released its debut single Spoons, I fell in love. It was chill, silken, soulful, and it gave me a profound heartache I couldn’t get away from. The vocals were magical, and I couldn’t figure out why people weren’t fonder of the song. If this was the tone they were going to set for themselves as an outfit, I would be a longtime fan.
Then they blew up when Feel The Love took over the charts – a song so different from their first entry that I thought they quit their sound altogether in search of mainstream recognition. Turns out, that after many months and singles later, Rudimental was just proving that they were – and still are – the most high-impact, versatile quartet of music maestros I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing from the electronic scene.
Yes I may be partly boozed at the time of writing
The best time for me to review things is really when I’m in a drunken stupor because I am at my most straightforward. So to cut to the chase, here’s the shows I’ve been watching, new and old, and what I think of them.
My interest in Hannibal was most shallow – I wanted to stare at Hugh Dancy’s hot model face for a change, when usually I’d climb up walls in heat over strong female characters. I got that, and found that he was in fact, quite the thespian. And somewhere along the way, I was entranced by the effectively scary-yet-extremely personable Mads Mikkelsen, who very easily made me forget how iconic Anthony Hopkins really was in the same title role.
But you know what was the best surprise about Hannibal? I saw what it was like to kill someone, and was told about how it possibly felt – and I liked it.
Today will be a lowdown of two episodes: Andrea finally wakes up from her Governor-hazed delusion after countless episodes of people trying to slap the reality into her. I hate Andrea, but y’know, it isn’t too bad. And once we’re out of the way with filler, onto the next ep that has got my boyfriend and I feeling horribly depressed by its end. It hurts, oh yes, it hurts.

I couldn’t have said it better my friend! Lots of negotiating, not enough cunning. Here’s another filler courtesy of The Walking Dead.
Since T.Rez announced Nine Inch Nails’ comeback, I’m so excited guys, because I love NIN madly, like forever in my whole existence. Reznor says he’s re-imagining the whole NIN concept, which doesn’t worry me at all. Reinvention paves the way to new and original things. If his recent work is anything to go by, I’m going to be very pleased. Put aside the haterade, people.
In celebration of NIN ending their indefinite hiatus, here’s short list of my fave tracks. (Cos I’m such a fangirl, duh.)
As I’m watching the episode my heart actually wrenches with pity. The truth has never been clearer – people are cruel, and people are cold. Even if they have their own stories on who they have to protect.
