If this is what the new Low album (Double Negative, out in September) actually sounds like, it might be the best thing they’ve ever done. #video

Monthnotes for April & May 2018

April was quiet enough. I enjoyed WrestleMania weekend, even if I wasn’t moved to write much about it. My Twitter thread is here, though you might need the context of the show itself to follow along. As always, the NXT TakeOver show was the highlight.

As I mentioned previously, April saw a few actual trips to the cinema for me, to see Rampage, Lu Over the Wall and The Breadwinner, the last of which is one of my favourite films of the year thus far.

I started upping my rate of movies watched in May, which I’ll elaborate on in a separate post. I’ve also been watching more streaming TV as of late. More…


Watching the BOSJ final. This Ishimori fellow, his physical resemblance to [REDACTED] is distracting. Needless to say I’m for Hiromu #tweet


Would love to watch the live BOSJ show this morning but our broadband’s been down for 20 minutes so I don’t think that’s happening #tweet


Olly’s videos, like this one, are excellent stuff — and indeed represent Kant’s moral philosophy in praxis. #video


These Mid-South uploads on the Network are great, but WWE is missing so much of its own history without Superstars and Wrestling Challenge #tweet
