Hell Or High Water - 2016



I'm not a big fan of robbery movies or even guns in scripts at all. However this movie more than compensates for a fairly pedestrian story with exquisite photography that captures the bigness of Texas.

Jeff Bridges is a poignant addition, playing a role that squeezes a dimension of acting out of him that we haven't seen before, though he's much older and I guess so am I.


"The only way to do that was to keep a shot longer than it could hold and finding something that was almost so banal that you had to wait long enough for what the visual interest would be".

Joseph Atwill & Tim Kelly - Power & Principalities Episode 13



What makes these conversations so special is that unless interviewing a proper scholar like Joseph Atwill, Tim Kelly can sometimes overwhelm the guests with his extensive knowledge and considerable book reading. Here, they both compliment each other and this series of discussions are among the finest on the net at present.

CIA Nazis, Knights of Malta, Vatican II, Lifetime actors, P2 Lodge, Illuminati and the New World Order get a good airing. Tim's riff on Vatican II is particularly impressive and I don't even agree with them both on a lot of narrative frameworks they settle on, as I feel there's a different way to assemble the moving parts. Just my opinion of course.

It's still the dogs bollocks.

Andy Weatherall - Music's Not For Everyone




It's a blessing when great music comes into our lives and elevates the pedestrian to the meaningful. I can barely move on Mixcloud there's so much quality music in my stream.
