Montage Of Heck

Film & TV, Silver Screen April 24, 2015

Earlier this month, my boyfriend and I had the pleasure of seeing Brett Morgen’s Montage Of Heck – a Kurt Cobain biopic at the lovely Everyman Cinema in Birmingham. Whilst the cinematic experience was paramount (read: a room full of sofas), we left feeling haunted and haggard. To the review…

Watch The Throne: Game Of Thrones – “The House of Black and White” (Season 5 Episode 2)

Film & TV, Small Screen, Watch The Throne April 22, 2015

It’s that time of week again and, as usual, DON’T BE A FOOL. This post is full of spoilers, because that is what round-ups are; I’ve you’ve not watched this episode and the surprises, then stop reading this post!


 

“The House of Black and White’

Having sailed all the way to Braavos and exhausting all other possibilities in her quest for stability, you can forgive Arya Stark for being disillusioned after being informed by an elder black man that no-one by the name of Jaqen H’ghar (the faceless man who gave her the coin) lives in the House of Black and White. After spending the night recounting her Death List Mantra on its doorstep before tossing the coin into the sea, she goes in search for food only to be set upon by three young men who appear to have a penchant for headless pigeon and her skinny sword. Luckily for Arya, the man from the House of Black and White had followed her and comes to her rescue. He takes her back with him and removes his face, revealing himself to be Jaqen H’ghar after all.

Watch The Throne: Game Of Thrones – “Burning Man” (Season 5 Episode 1)

Film & TV, Small Screen, Watch The Throne April 15, 2015

In the past three years, the annual return of Game Of Thrones has become somewhat of an institutionalised event, if ever the hype had died down at all. Marketing campaigns are beginning ever earlier and are becoming more grand – if you were not getting Twitter DM’s from the Three Eyed Crow, then “Hello!”, where the hell were you? It didn’t get more impressive than the social media hype of ‘Catch Drogon’, a game whereby the collective followers of Game Of Thrones Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts were invited to catch Daenerys’ biggest (and missing) beast. Luring Drogon – via photos, posts and GIFs and the power of the #hashtag – and re-tweeting or commenting before GIF Drogon “flew off” resulted in the lucky addict winning GoT prizes; whoever came up with this marketing campaign must’ve got a big fat HBO-sized bonus, no doubt.

Why girls need Hayley Williams’ Kiss Off ♥

Haircare & Make-Up, Small Screen April 13, 2015

So finally, it’s happened.

At the end of last month, Hayley Williams – of Paramore fame – debuted a new beauty show called KISS OFF (cue the eye rolls of many). The first episode of the vlog aired on POPULAR TV, the latest outing of former NYLON founding editor, Marvin Scott Jarrett. You’d be forgiven for not having heard of the site as it only launched at the beginning of March, but if you were – at some point – a NYLON disciple, then there is much for you to enjoy there.

You can watch the first episode of Kiss Off here.
