Embrace – Magnetic North

April 20, 2014 at 12:47 (Music)

Not quite sure how to classify this one. Embrace decided to film a session recording of their first album in seven years and the resulting film was shown at Hyde Park Picture House with some of the band introducing and doing a Q&A. It isn’t a documentary, there is nothing else apart from the album tracks, so it doesn’t feel like a film (and isn’t on tmdb so I haven’t added it to Letterboxd) and it isn’t a gig. It was a great opportunity to present new songs and a fairly unique way of the band heckling themselves. It would be nice to see the film expanded into a real documentary as the entertaining Q&A showed the band have plenty to say.

TV 2013

January 20, 2014 at 08:14 (TV) ()

I had hoped that I’d be able to use TrakT to tell what I’d watched during 2013 but I lost my tablet towards the end of the year and didn’t check everything in. So here’s what I remember as the highlights:

  • Breaking Bad (1-5 Netflix)
  • Arrested Development (Rewatched Netflix)
  • Nashville
  • The Good Wife
  • Parks And Recreation
  • The Returned
  • Homeland
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Borgen
  • Boss
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Top Of The Lake
  • Dates
  • Suburgatory
  • The Fall
  • Doctor Who
  • The Big C
  • Him & Her
  • Love/Hate
  • The Bridge
  • Luther
  • Top Boy
  • Bad Education
  • Peaky Blinders
  • Black Mirror
  • Broadchurch
  • Utopia
  • Fresh Meat
  • Man Down
  • Pramface

Games of 2013

January 19, 2014 at 23:11 (Games) ()

So I managed to play quite a few games in 2013 and hope to play more this year.

I think this is the complete list, excluding any mobile games.

  • Zombie U
  • New Super Mario Bros U
  • Lego City Undercover
  • Bioshock Infinite
  • Walking Dead 400 Days
  • Max Payne 3
  • Pikmin 3
  • GTAV
  • Tomb_Raider: Legend
  • Tomb Raider (2013)

All of these games were heavily flawed apart from 400 Days and Pikmin 3 (although I may have overlooked the flaws in Pikmin). That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy them though, it’s just a shame that with a little more effort they could have been a lot better.
