My two favourite singer-song writers: Fiona Apple and Sharon Van Etten need to be BFFs.
I can’t believe it – there isn’t even a photo of them together, a cover of each other’s songs, or a duet by either of them. I’m hoping they don’t see each other as direct competition or foes…
Therefore, I have collated five compelling reasons why they need to be besties forever… Continue reading

You may have noticed I have done this post before. You are correct. This time last year, I gifted you people with a splendid collection of my personal Christmas film favourites. However, I am here to refresh this post with one additional film. Also, this time I’ve included quotes from my cat-loving, film-tolerating brother, who dresses his fur-babies up as Christmas-themed characters… Continue reading

Horse films are typically watched by horseriders, which means the film is going to have a very critical audience right off the bat.
I can’t enjoy horse films or TV shows (although… I don’t really know anyone over the age of 12 who does) because it’s really difficult not to nit-pick.

The holidays are nigh!
Here in New Zealand there will be no snow. No cold nights indoors by the fire. No hot roast dinners at three in the afternoon. Because it’s summer during December. We have humid tropical rain storms, and barbecues on the deck or on the beach.
So! I reminisce about white Christmases and relate to fellow Scrooges and Grinches by watching my top three favourite December flicks.
Because I haven’t reviewed any of these movies before, I’ll create short reviews in this piece… Continue reading
