What We’re Watching: Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model – Episode 5

5 years ago / 0 comments

Episode 5 I didn’t enjoy this week’s episode. Up until now it had been fun to rant and bitch about the contestants who I deemed to be evil, safe in the knowledge that their souls were hollow and flimsy like a kinder egg, (I also have reason to believe that … Read More

Episode 4 So the big reveal of this week’s episode of BINTM is that Angel is really very annoying. Not only does she have a very irritating, airy giggle, but she also doesn’t do her washing up. As far as I’m concerned, there is no worse crime conceivable. No hyperbole. … Read More

Episode 3 Hooray! Another episode of BINTM. I choose to pronounce this acronym, not only because Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model is too long to say (or to even type… Cheeky Copy and Paste there), but because “bintim” sounds like a edgy new variation of “bitchin”, a word which … Read More

Episode 2 I’ll admit, straight off, that I didn’t watch the first episode of Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model, or BINTM as the hashtag encourages. I didn’t even realise that there was an episode before this one until I came to write this. Well I’m just going to assume … Read More

Banksy is not a graffiti artist. To call him a graffiti artist is naïve and ignorant way to think about street art, and is, quite frankly, painfully uncool. Of course I, like almost everyone else outside the complex underworld of graffiti, had absolutely no clue whatsoever that there is a … Read More

TV: Borgen

  As yet another Scandinavian drama hits our television screens Jennie Pritchard asks why they just always seem to get it right? Borgen has to have one of the most boring-sounding plot-lines ever thought up. Trying to explain it to someone goes a bit like this: “Oh it’s this brilliant … Read More

Books: New Review: Meme Wars – The Creative Destruction of Neoclassical Economics by Kalle Lasn

6 years ago / 0 comments

    Meme Wars is a book I was originally eager to lay into. The title alone made me scoff with a sceptical self-consciousness. It looked like a lame, hyped-up, hipster -manifesto: a book for those people who preach revolutionary messages about consumerism and popular culture and the injustices of … Read More

Books: New Review: The Twitter Diaries by Georgie Thompson and Imogen Lloyd Webber

6 years ago / 0 comments

  I really, really like twitter. Haters, celebrity obsessives and angsty teenagers aside, there are some absolute geniuses pumping out little nuggets of comedy gold almost 24 hours a day. Some of the greatest examples come from friends like Caitlin Moran, Lauren Laverne and Grace Dent; blowing the ‘women aren’t … Read More

  Parade’s End was one of the most moving and accomplished pieces of television Jennie Pritchard has ever watched; full to the brim of Britain’s finest acting talent and adapted from one of the finest English novels ever written. So why did no one watch it? As a £12 million … Read More
