The London Film Critics Decide the Irish Aren’t British - http://bit.ly/1k77ije
The Irish Times discusses the ignorant error made by the London Film Critics. Thankfully, that has since been amended. On that topic, if I see Saoirse Ronan labeled as British I will not be pleased.
What I’m Listening To:
Serial Podcast Season 2 Episode 2 - serialpodcast.org
Thursday afternoon, I listen to the new Serial podcast. Episode 2 was great. It involved the Taliban's side of the story which is as interesting as it sounds.
E-MO-TION by Carly Rae Jepsen
Gone are the days of Call Me Maybe, this is an epic album, an amazing compilation of the strongest pop songs in the past decade. Snubbed by the Grammy’s, this album deserves a lot of recognition. It is fantastic. Run Away with Me, the hit single I Really Like You, All That and Warm Blood are the highlights of the album.
What I’m Watching:
Political Animals Season 1
Sigourney Weaver stars as the Secretary of State in this political drama. I love American political dramas and had high expectations for this one. Episode 4, though it contained some eye roll moments, I found it to be the strongest. 5 was another good episode and the finale was excellent. Though episodes 1 to 3 reeked of mediocrity, the final three were brilliant. Sigourney Weaver performed amazingly throughout.
