I've seen that Rhouses and think it deserved more than 5/10, quite a quirky decent film i thought.

True BF. Thought I'd get called out for being bias. A strong 6/10 imo.

Apparently you get an oscar nomination if you can shit yourself convincingly. Couldn't finish The Judge, what a piece of shit movie.

Birdman deserved it this year, Keaten and Norton were brilliant. Emma Stone was kinda meh, didn't really understand where that nomination came from.

Boyhood was decent, but overall, it's a time-pass movie. Doesn't really grab you by the balls in any way or form.

If you carry on playing like that you will go close.My money is on the kiwis. Certainly don`t want Australia any where near the final.Horrible nation when it comes to sport these days.

Was pleasantly surprised myself... kinda shut off after the Aussie Test matches, so didn't really see how bad we were during the tri-series. Our fielding and running between the wickets has become superb! Love the Rahane innings and glad our bowlers didn't get beasted.

Don't see the kiwi's reaching the finals, but I might be wrong. Chances are super high with Pakistan and the West Indies imploding.

Not as bad as the one of Hannu prying through a crowd with the crazy eyes of a backstreet boys fan girl trying get his airdrawndagger album signed with Sasha behind the decks.

I don't know why, but that image has been forged in my memory.

oh yeah, Iron Maiden interview too from the radio days!

When I was working with BPM in LA, I had to be Deep Dish's bitch making sure they were 'comfortable' before their set, also Mark Ronson (when he was just a hip hop dj) and DJ AM (who was actually damn sweet and gave me a ton of free Gravis swag - was kinda sad to hear he died of an OD but wasn't surprised - dude was taking hits out of crack pipe during his set). Had to follow the OS Gesmeos fellas while they tagged different places in LA and Buff Monster too (he features for a couple of seconds in Exit from the Gift Shop) who used to work with BPM too.

Believe it was '92, the Sharjah Cricket Tournament... Dad somehow got VIP box tickets for the pakistan vs india group match. Besides the free drinks, a TV for replays and a motherload of Biryani - our box was lined up against the one Sunil Gavaskar and Sir Garfield Sobers was sitting in. Remember a bit of banter with Sunny.

Played a lot of tennis at school in the mid 90s - trained with Krishna Bhupathi for two years, the father of Mahesh Bhupathi... the doubles star with Leander Paes. Remember 'chilling' with Mahesh right after he won his first Wimbledon doubles. Think it might have been their first grand slam. Wasn't ever good enough to hit the ball with him though.

Having worked at India's only English radio station (fuck off loopy)... got to do a lot of face to face interviews. Top of my head: Jeffrey Archer, Rahul Dravid, Vijay Amritraj (lunch and everything) Javagal Srinath, Deepika Padukone, Russell Peters... a lot more Indian celebs that you guys probably couldn't care less about.

College, I used to study in the same school at the same time as one of the girls from Full House, Tom Hanks' son Colin Hanks and Malcolm McDowell's son use to be my stoner buddy. Steven Spielberg did a college tour too - used to work in admissions so we all had a roundtable meeting with him and his kid before the tour. 

Bumped into Jon Hopkins getting a kaati roll at the NH7 festival here in India before his set... big upped his Fact mix. Not really sure DJ klangs count for much... most them are just chilling at all the gigs they play and are always up to hang out.

True BF.

Who is this wanker anyway. I thought we were done with aliases. There's a stench and it reeks of dermo.

Personally, has to be Desyn, when it comes to a fall from grace. Shouldn't have gone that SOS route, diluting his brand with Omid and that other fella. Pity that peak from 2004-2005 never materialized for him.

Not so much a fall from grace, but I'd like to see Burridge and Howells get some more 'legendary' love. They're pretty much under the radar these days.

As for Sander... it all started with that stupid visual cdj thingie he did back in 2004-05. Still remember the bergkamp gif he'd play out to monster techno which was a pretty cool moment. But otherwise, the music sucked ass. Shite electro essentially. His nubreed still remains one of my favourites though.

Birdman - 8/10

Good watch, but not at the 9 level like whiplash. Can't go wrong with some Raymond Carver, aye. Beautifully shot and a superb ending. Need to give it a closer watch.

Better Call Saul delivered with the opening episode. Second ep to follow tonight. So far so good, no complaints. Lots of breaking bad in it, stylistically and story-wise but still manages to stand on it's own two feet. Can't beat that Vince Gilligan dark-humour.

Walking Dead was aight... glad there's a destination in the plot because I'm getting sick of this "let's put them in a new setting and show how humans are more fucked up than zombies" story-line they keep rehashing with every new season.

Episodes with Joey and the two brits has kicked off an amazing new season... defo worth a watch imo. Finding it very very funny.

Looking forward to the GOT and Mad Men comeback next month. TV is a bit dry at the moment.

Musically not a very high bar but the Foundacion nights with Sasha in Avalon LA were fun with tons of people just aving it.  Was the ableton days and Sasha was playing some real boring shite, but his guest DJs always brought it and shit would go down in a big way when they'd hit up the decks after sasha's dragging and clicking warm up. Desyn, Steve Porter and the Burridge nights were exceptionally special. In fairness, the tag teaming from 4-6AM on all the nights were a shit load of fun.

Remember my last Danny Howells gig at Monday Night Social LA during the GU Miami promo tour being a proper night in terms of a small room packed with a great crown.

There have been some monster nights here in India... Richie Hawtin and Jon Hopkins where people just went ape shit, but nothing at the same level i experienced while in LA.

Diggers in Bengaluru a couple years back had some pretty up for it people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuUIKamyRKM

Ohhh shit I have to give this a shout out...

Whiplash - 9/10
Epic movie and an absolute must-watch for all drummers.
