Game: Fahrenheit
Developer: Quantic Dream

Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy if you have the censored American version) is a very entertaining interactive story, which excels in several ways, but is unfortunately also let down by the limitations of the gameplay.

Due to the popularity of the Britpop guide, here is my definitive guide to the genre that punk created. Enjoy.

Some footage of The Clash from the month that I was born (June '81) which leads me to the question - is it any wonder that my faith in modern music is waning when you think that this kind of performance is over 25 years old and there has been nothing with equal excitement since?

I finally got to see Hot Fuzz this evening and, as I'm bored in a hotel room, here is my review. Enjoy.

With the Kaiser Chiefs' second album out this week, there has been much stirring of a revival in interest (not actual revival, thankfully) of Britpop. Given that I was a music obsessed fifteen year old in 1996, I would like to share with you, via the wonder of YouTube, my top picks that define the era of Britpop. Whether or not you choose to click and listen is kind of irrelevant, I just wanted to feel young again.

For those of you that don't know, The Good, the Bad and the Queen are the latest project for the team of Damon Albarn and Danger Mouse. That's not the name of the band - they do not seem to have a name. Confusing hey?

And here's 3 quick reasons why I think they're great.

1) They have a mix in styles unlike anything I've heard before. I can best describe this as a mix of raggae, African and vaudeville. Yeah, get your head round that.

2) It's from the same team that brought us Gorillaz. And let's be fair, they're cool.

3) They have Paul Simonon playing bass, who is the greatest bass player in the world. Not because of musical talent but because a) he looked cooler than anyone else playing a bass and b) he was on the cover of London Calling.

Check out their myspace (link below), where you can listen to their whole album, watch an interview or watch an entire gig. That's gotta be worth a look.

If you have never heard of Mark Kermode then, apart from wonder what you are doing in this community, I will explain. He is an outspoken British film critic who, I believe, is on a par with Roger Ebert. The fact that he hates Star Wars I think is a good indication of just how outspoken he is. He has a friggin' Ph.D in Horror Fiction, which, almost literally, makes him Dr Terror. You can hear him every Friday at 3pm on Radio Five Live (606MW) and, if you love your films, then I suggest that you try and catch him.

Failing that, you can click on the below link for what I think is the greatest review archive that you can have. And it's audio so you don't even have to read anything. Great eh?

If you are a member of this community (and you wouldn't be reading this if you weren't) then you will probably have an opinion on he following essay.
