red hot chili peppers

Looking Forward: Red Hot Chili Pepper – Unlimited Love

February 23, 2022 musehick

The first new music with Frusciante in a long time. This is exciting. The first single Black Summer starts off pretty mellow but then it kicks up the energy in a way that instantly transports you. I like that I Read more…

Looking Forward: Texas Chainsaw Massacre

January 31, 2022 musehick

The original movie was one of my favourite horror movies, because it didn’t telegraph the horror. It played it’s monster straight. The sledgehammer coming down on someone was how the whole movie felt to me. I hope this captures that Read more…

the eyes of tammy faye

Film Hick: The Eyes Of Tammy Faye


I am not super familiar with Televangelism. I had heard of Tammy Faye, but I think it was more in the role as connected to the LGBTQIA+ community. So, what drew me to this? Jessica Chastain. She is one of Read more…

The House

Filmhick: The House

January 29, 2022 musehick

I love stop motion animation. I was raised on the works of Oliver Postgate, and I love the Quay Brothers, so darkness in animation is not that new to me. It is such a versatile corner of the medium of Read more…

Old M Night Shymalan

Film Hick: Old

November 26, 2021 musehick

I read some reviews of this movie that said that it moves too quickly for you to feel anything for the characters. I think that speed of storytelling dumps you right there on the beach with the characters of the Read more…

Prisoners Of The Ghostland

Film Hick: Prisoners Of The Ghostland


When you let Nicholas Cage loose and he in scene-chewing mode you need something solid for him to connect with. If Cage swings and hits against nothing substantial then the whole act feels just as paper-thin. This seems like something Read more…

We Are Lady Parts

Rebellious Jukebox: We Are Lady Parts

December 4, 2021 musehick

I have to admit I discovered the music through Spotify and wasn’t aware that they were a band from a sitcom. Based on that knowledge the music here isn’t bad. The first song I heard really made me think of Read more…

FKA Twigs

Rebellious Jukebox: FKA Twigs (feat. Central Cee) — Measure of a Man

December 1, 2021 musehick

This is the best Bond theme not for a Bond movie. FKA Twigs creates a sexy and sophisticated song that is a real earworm. I hope the movie The King’s Man is good, but even if it isn’t this song Read more…

Adele 30

Rebellious Jukebox: Adele 30

November 21, 2021 musehick

On first listen I found this sonically more interesting than the last record, but it was not an easy album to listen too. I heard Adele talking to Zane Lowe about some of the influences on the sound, and I Read more…

The Sparks Brothers

Film Hick: The Sparks Brothers

November 18, 2021 musehick

This Town Ain’t Big Enough For The Both Of Us — that is pretty much all Sparks meant to me before this dictionary; that and Ron Mael’s moustache. I had been teeing it up to buy a lot of their Read more…



March 20, 2022 musehick

The fact that I would watch Rosario Dawson in most things didn’t serve me well here. I am most way through the first episode, and apart from the name, I don’t get the point of this show even referring to Read more…

Ricky Gervais

Television Whitenoise: After Life

January 31, 2022 musehick

I don’t think I was expecting this show from Ricky Gervais. I wasn’t expecting to cry. Tony and Lisa are such believable characters. I’ve lived through this kind of loss and the aftermath of it. The weirdness of the small Read more…

somebody somewhere

Television Whitenoise: Somebody Somewhere

January 29, 2022 musehick

Bridget Everett as Sam is great and Jeff Hiller as Joel is her perfect sidekick. I like this kind of low-key comedy. It is a little like mumblecore with the pacing and the way the laughs are pitched. The way Read more…


Television Whitenoise: Insecure

January 18, 2022 musehick

I love this show. I have landed on these seasons and binged them as soon as they land. Issa Rae is amazing. I love Issa, Molly, Kelli, Tiffany, Lawrence. I love all the characters.The show is able to be both Read more…

Daredevil Season 3

Daredevil Season 3

January 29, 2019 musehick

It is a real shame that this series is not continuing. It was interesting to see the opposition of motion versus stillness in this season as an indicator of who was winning. When Kingpin is on top he is calm, Read more…

iron fist

The Iron Fist Season 2

September 9, 2018 musehick

The Iron Fist has obviously had one of the more problematic journeys to the small screen. Was it less problematic when it was created? Maybe. It was created at a point when there was a huge interest in martial arts, Read more…

shipwreck by warren ellis

Shipwreck by Warren Ellis & Phil Hester

August 4, 2018 musehick

I was sold on the book from the first image I saw of it. I buy and read pretty much everything Warren Ellis writes, so I would have found it anyway, and I subscribe to his letter, which is an Read more…

Comicsphere: Firelight Isle by Paul Duffield

September 19, 2016 skullcull

Paul Duffield, the great artist that worked on Warren Ellis’s Freakangels is working on this great new project, which you should go and check out.
