Eurus

Next up on the chopping block: Euros by The Oh Hellos. Cross your legs, align your chakras, and let’s get a little bit spiritual. But first, an ad from our sponsors: Are you tired of today’s pop songs, always drawing from the same grab-bag of well-worn tropes and tired-out lyrics? Ready to trade lyrics like these: “I’m that motherfucker bustin’ heads, Finna push it to the ledge, Yeah, I’ve been smokin’ my meds Ain’t got no love for the feds.” – “44 More” by Logic Or “I met up with an acrobat… Read More

It’s the original  “slap-on-the-wrist” for your tongue; it’s a Trojan horse filled with awful;… Read More

Dirk Gently (Season 1)

Alright, we’re back after the holidays and an extended vacation from reviewing. It seems that the Sun has also been on holiday seeing as we haven’t seen daylight in Saintes since before the New Year… on the bright side, this weather’s been great if your New Year’s resolutions were to, say, avoid melanoma or perhaps be more generally wet. This year is shaping up to be a good one for all the French vampires and pretty trash for everyone else.   Moving on. All this ~ not-being-outside~ has given me some time… Read More
