The name’s Barry, John Barry

RIP John Barry, composer of the soundtracks of 11 James Bond films and many others including Midnight Cowboy. He won Oscars for Born Free (for best song and best score), The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa and Dances With Wolves.


Ipcress was my personal fave… watched it on tv again one Sunday afternoon not too long ago and thought at the time just how good the music was.

Red State Roadshow

leave a comment »

Kevin Smith brought a new film to Sundance, Red State. But he’s not looking for a deal. He’s going to distribute himself with no advertising. And not talk to the press. And quit making films to concentrate on distributing other indie film makers. Smith explains his plans at the screening (30min Vimeo) (NSFW)

Arthur Wyatt Comics Writer 2000AD The Judge Dredd Megazine

Judge Dredd Megazine

Hi Arthur! *Waves*

Arthur Wyatt is a friend of mine and I recently gently teased him for setting up a google alert for himself to see if anyone was talking about his writing. I wonder how long before he spots this…? 😉

He’s great by the way and you should check out his stuff in 2000AD and especially The Judge Dredd Megazine – where he’s current got a story ‘Samizdat Squad

His web site is here, it’s a bit old and his main online presence is on Metafilter.
