The Good, the Bad and the Queen’s Merrie Land

Merrie Land

Have I mentioned before that Damon Albarn possibly is my all-time favourite musician? Oh I have? Well let me say it again: he possibly is my favourite musician. The frontman of Blur and the Gorillaz has given my cold heart a lot to be excited again with a new album by The Good, the Bad and the Queen after their debut over 11 years ago in 2007. The superband has come with a new album called Merrie Land and it’s exquisite, if I may add. Bekijk bericht


The Crusades


I’m fascinated by history, but I’m also equally frustrated at how some definitions or concepts are portrayed in popular culture. I often feel the need to educate people on it, however that is not the case right now. I just want to have a look at the crusades of the 11th, 12th and 13th century. Bekijk bericht

Here are the first five. Bekijk bericht


Classics: Dial M for Murder (1954)

I love watching films and I’m always keen to discover new films. But the notion of discovering new films usually is connected to film who have been filmed recently, but that’s not really what I mean. I also love to discover films from the past, the so-called classics. One of my favourites is Alfred Hitchcock’s Dial M for Murder. This post may contain spoilers, so y’know. Bekijk bericht
