    We Make Beer

    Aug 22, 14 • 1164 Views • Books & Magazines, MediaNo Comments

    There’s a difference between “I’d love a beer” and “l love beer”, and we’re not just talking about the life-changes of an alcoholic. The perfect craft beer may not command quite the esteem amongst the middle classes as a fine wine, but requires...

    Sin City – A Dame to Kill For

    Aug 18, 14 • 1231 Views • Movies & Shows, VideosNo Comments

    Frank Miller’s Sin City took an entirely different slant on an emerging comic-book genre, masterfully translating his gritty, smoggy, no-holds-barred series to the big screen – it seems like we’ve been waiting forever for the sequel. One of the...

    The Hobbit – The Battle of Five Armies

    Aug 15, 14 • 1223 Views • Movies & Shows, VideosNo Comments

    The Hobbit hasn’t really come close to matching the grandiosity of the LOTR trilogy so far, but in the third and final instalment of a single book that was definitely stretched out to three films for artistic purposes and was in no way an attempt to...

    When it comes to remakes, Hollywood history sits squarely in the “hit and miss” category. But if there’s one film that we think deserves the modern treatment it’s the much delayed reboot of Mad Max. The original catapulted Mel Gibson into the public...

    We’re all aware of the fact that there are thousands of food blogs to choose from. But none are quite like Thug Kitchen. Visit their site and you’ll find that, surprisingly, food and profanity were made for each other. Now the anonymous...

    Barbeque Bible

    May 15, 14 • 2075 Views • Books & Magazines, Hot Reads, MediaNo Comments

    Two things that we’re not sure should go together are barbeques and cookbooks. There’s something not quite right about diluting the distinctive manliness of a barbeque with an instruction book, but fortunately that’s not what’s on the table here....

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes | Exclusive Trailer

    May 15, 14 • 1132 Views • Movies & Shows, VideosNo Comments

    It’ll be interesting to see how far 20th Century Fox takes the newly rebooted Planet of the Apes series. Not in a “how many films will there be” kind of way, we all know they’ll keep going until one flops horrendously, then begrudgingly decide to only...

    Winter Cocktails

    Jan 21, 14 • 1200 Views • Books & Magazines, MediaNo Comments

    Mulled wine and Eggnog – two abominations of mixology that have a few things in common. Both are barely fit for human consumption, both have a curious affinity with the upper classes, and both are traditionally consumed in the winter. Often at Thanksgiving...
