Father when can I leave to be on my owwwn 💅
Can’t wait to go to Lord Summerisle’s Burning Man Festival!
God I knew The Wicker Man would be good, I had no idea it’d be THIS good. I watched ‘The Final Cut’ and enjoyed it immensely. This thing really is something special, expertly combining folk horror with musical sequences, religious conflict and pure terror. I haven’t seen a film this perfectly paced in a long time, the initial scenes on the island are almost a mood piece, the songs and characters…

Yeah it’s a masterpiece, Lana Wachowksi outdoes herself once again. We’re all stuck in strange repeating loops, trying to break free from the rigid binaries of our reality while the system tries to keep everyone complacent.

Is this good? Probably not.
Is it widely entertaining? Oh god yes.
One of the single most baffling musicals I’ve ever seen, Diana: The Musical is 2021’s Cats, a camp mess of wonderful proportions you rarely see. Some of my favourite ridiculous lyrics include: “Better than a Guinness, better than a wank/Snatch a few pics and it’s money in the bank!”, “It’s the ‘Thrilla in Manila’ but with Diana and Camilla”, “Snap click, snap click won’t you admit?/Your storybook marriage is going to…
