James Dean 1955

Just a photo of James Dean in his hometown a few months before his death, larking about amongst some coffins.  What. The.

Empire State of Spiegeltent

Just wanted to share a couple of photos of Spiegelworld's incredible show Empire that we saw last weekend. A great mix of burlesque circus cabaret and comedy,  I'm glad we chose the little cocktail tables which were cosy and had a great view of the performances.

I had a cocktail called the Tightrope (of course) which was right up my alley thanks to the mix of vodka, Chambord and a splash of bubbly. I also realised you may need nerves of steel to watch the performances...it's so nerve wracking and tense but ultimately mind boggling and breathtaking.  The gorgeous tent really helps to set the tone, you feel like you are in another world and another time.  More please!

Let England Shake

I went to see Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds last week.  It was one of the best shows I've seen since I don't even know when. That good.  Part of me felt like I was being unfaithful to my girl crush, PJ Harvey.  Silly I know, but let's focus on Ms. Polly Jean for a moment, shall we?

Whatever this is, whoever is designing her stage outfits...bless you.  I love it, and it suits her more than any other phase she's been through.

Have you seen the magnificent mini films by Seamus Murphy for each song on the album?
