A couple of years ago I attended a unique screening of Bjorn Tagemose’s Gutterdammerung at the Palladium which included, among the plethora of rock star cameos, an excellent sequence featuring Jesse Hughes of the Eagles of Death Metal (EODM). He looked familiar to me, and while I’d heard of the band, I wasn’t too familiar with … Continue reading Making a Bang!
A friend of mine once told me she loved attending events on a Sunday evening because she feels she’s extending the weekend, making the most of her time.

This is the final stretch! In the ultimate working week of the year one can feel business drawing to a close.
