It's better square...

Jewish Charisma

It has been suggested by film reviewers alike as the Coen Brothers best fil to date, so having heard this only ten minutes before the film was due to start, made my expectations rocket into overdue. I am pleased to say that I was by no means short changed.

Charismatic, endearing, warming, sad, suprising... I could go on but this really did have it all. Very strong and memorable characters, transportation well aken to a different era.

In short, just go see it. Mazletov!!!

Film of the Week

(A review from the Independent)

Faculty be warned: appoint Eva Green to the teaching staff and teenage hormones run riot. Here she comes as the pulchritudinous Miss G, eyes glittering through thick mascara, her cigarette cocked at a rakish angle, as she first bewitches the girls at a 1930s boarding school and then is in turn bewitched by a visiting Spanish temptress (MarĂ­a Valverde).

  1. Cracks
  2. Production year: 2009
  3. Countries: Ireland, Rest of the world, UK
  4. Cert (UK): 15
  5. Runtime: 104 mins
  6. Directors: Jordan Scott
  7. Cast: Eva Green, Imogen Poots, Juno Temple, Maria Valverde, Sinead Cusack
  8. More on this film

Set-up complete, Jordan (daughter of Ridley) Scott proceeds to whip up a flouncing gothic melodrama that is ravishing and ­risible in about equal measure. Cracks totters on high heels and strikes all ­manner of poses in the mirror. Sooner or later it's bound to fall over.

Where ever I go...

A must for you core knitters!

Creepy Cute Crochet

Isn't this just the most wonderful idea and wouldn't it be even more wonderful if you created your own charachters?!

Stu and Jon...Inked!

I want to ride it where I like...

Good Times with Ta (usually :))

Graf Heart

I think my obsession with hearts is taking over my visual life...

Stitch and Bitch

I would like to suggest that this indeed is a unique idea but I would be lying if I were to say that. However, a group of like minded and lovely friends have decided to join needles and start our own Stitch and Bitch group aka Knitting Social! Whether this has anyhing to do with age, preservation, recession but all over the world knitting socials are popping up left, right and centre. This is actually an idea that began stateside in the 90's and continued to develop since (but has probably been underway a long time before).

So ladies alike, if you are curious to join us friendly, fun, helpful and smiling knitters we meet once a fortnight at Noahs yard in Uplands, Swansea. Second and last Thursday of the month at 7.30pm. Beginners and experts, bring your needles and wool and some bitch ;)

Voodoo Girl

Voodoo Girl by Tim Burton

Her skin is white cloth,

and she's all sewn apart

and she has many colored pins

sticking out of her heart.

She has many different zombies

who are deeply in her trance.

She even has a zombie

who was originally from France.

But she knows she has a curse on her,

a curse she cannot win.

For if someone getstoo close to her,
the pins stick farther in.

Film of the Week

Le Donk

"Calm down Ricky Butcher..."

The magnetic joining of Meadows/Considine in the off beat Mockumentary 'Le Donk' once again shows us why some things just work, the marriage of minds, the dynamic of two like minded beings.

Think Midlands, think Fame, think has-been, think Rock and Roll.

Cringe worthy and hilarious!!!
