A Star Is Born

What an amazing movie, and it's not just the stars. Big names like Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga do sell movies. As did Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand in the previous production of the same name about 40 years ago (and I feel really old now 🙂 ). And there were 2 previous versions to … Continue reading A Star Is Born

Murder on the Orient Express – review

Somewhat cynical, I went to see the remake of "Murder on the Orient Express" adapted from Agatha Christie's book of the same name. I grew up with Agatha Christie, her books a respite for a child filled with curiosity and desire to problem-solve. Not surprisingly then that law became a first career. Kenneth Branagh, a … Continue reading Murder on the Orient Express – review

It’s probably me

Here's the soulful voice of Gregory Porter. "It's probably me" was first released in 1992 through a collaboration of Sting, Eric Clapton, Michael Kamen and the incredible saxophonist, David Sanborn.

I believe in you

Vulnerability and strength, two words not commonly associated with each other until recent years. Vulnerability tends to be perceived as weakness rather than strength.  And how often have I had to remind myself in the candid moments, in the times when being true to myself seemed a betrayal, when the tears flowed and the heart … Continue reading I believe in you

To make you feel my love

A song for you... I came across it for the first time when it was recently sung at 2016 The Voice Australia 'blind' audition. Made Jessie J, a judge on the panel cry, and me too. A song written by Bob Dylan and this version released by Adele in her '19' album in 2008. Enjoy! … Continue reading To make you feel my love

All My Life

Checklists are dangerous. I cannot recall, and therefore I am disavowing, ever having a checklist for "the man of my dreams". "Tall, dark and handsome" wasn't a thing for my teenage self. Well, maybe tall... Neither was romantic, charming, suave, humorous or tough. I don't think I have a type, but I do wonder sometimes … Continue reading All My Life

Stressed out

Well I have been a little, and though my intellect, my mind tells me to chill, sometimes the emotions and the body react. I hope I am not alone when I say it is so easy, rather unthinkingly to take the stressed out emotions out on someone else. That can happen, don't flay yourself over … Continue reading Stressed out

Caress your soul

  Love reggae and indie sounds, so here's a Sydney band formed in 2009, Sticky Fingers (wonder if it is a tribute to Rolling Stones' 1971 album, Sticky Fingers...).  This 5-guy band is 'classified' as a reggae fusion/indie rock band. 'Caress your soul' is a song from their 2013 album of the same title.  Enjoy! … Continue reading Caress your soul
