I've always loved watching Mark Ruffalo on screen. Now I love listening to him/reading him too. Much respect. 

#HeForShe   #EverydayFeminist  
Mark Ruffalo recently took on the ‘I am not a feminist' movement.

You can be a decent person without being a feminist. First and Second wave feminism were important, modern feminism is not.

I've felt that action movies have felt pretty moribund as a genre for a while now. The effects have got bigger and the stakes seemingly ever higher but my interest has only diminished. I'll go to the latest superhero movie or whatever but I feel that they're always going through the formulaic motions and little felt real with nothing at stake and nothing thrilled me any more.

Well, if the action genre has a last gasp and an apotheosis of the form then that film must surely be Mad Max: Fury Road. And it's not a gasp but a triumphant war cry. This whole film was a thrill ride from beginning to end with characters I cared about, a plot I could follow and a cinematic poetry that dazzled and delighted me without pause. It was like the best of creative and iconic Eighties action films but with a modern sensibility and technical mastery.

While watching this film it was so legitimately awesome I felt like I grew ovaries which spontaneously exploded (after all, as this film joyfully shows, why should balls have all the fun?). If this is the last action film I ever enjoy then I won't be sad because I couldn't imagine a more fun and visceral way to bow out. What a blast.

"Information can't kill you" - Frank Zappa
Introduction
I'm a self-employed composer, musician, sound designer, recordist and general audio wizard. I mainly write music for TV and radio commercials but I'm also a product specialist for Avid Technology, demoing, teaching and explaining Pro Tools and Sibelius software to people. I am also the classical music blogmaster for TicketMasterUK. 

An Olympic-grade enthusiast, my particular areas of inspiration include classical music, science (especially physics), comics, coffee and critical thinking. Also zombies.
Bragging rights
I am occasionally dragged from drunken hangouts at the behest of the BBC for my prowess in science evangelism. I also once discombobulated Stephen Fry. Both of these things are true.

Every time I visit Ealing, I make sure to pop in to Yvon's, even if it's only for a coffee and a slice of their divine brioche on the counter. Simply everything is delicious in this small but charming patisserie, from the array of exquisitely crafted confections to the breads, sandwiches and even the coffee. I try something new every time and am never disappointed. Make a point to give it a try next time you're in the area.

My family loves this restaurant and always return whenever we're in Colchester. Cosy interior, bustling atmosphere and fresh, delicious menu. Recommended.

High ceilings, wide walls and soviet paintings dominate this spacious but busy venue. Some nice drinks and a good menu helped make both my visits pleasant. Staff were friendly, though sometimes a little swamped. Overall a recommended destination.

All in all, you can't go wrong with a night out at Bloomsbury Bowling. A great venue for birthdays and other such events, you get a nice variety of bowling, drinking, karaoke and a fifties diner, all bound up with a great atmosphere. Bear in mind that it's a popular place, so it's nearly always busy. But raucous fun times are nearly always had. Perfect for a 7-15 person group looking for a good night out. Don't forget to order your White Russians!

I arrived late to a party of 18 but was seated quickly and, though I ordered as their food was served, I had eaten my own meal in time for desert to be served at the same time. This, even though I ordered the rack of lamb, which is hardly a quick dish to prepare, which fell off the bone and was delicious. Very accomodating, great food and good atmosphere.

Simply one of the Great London pubs. Located in a delightfully cosy corner of Hampstead, it feels like walking into an Inn from Hobbiton, with nooks and crannies filled with people quaffing ales and eating the delicious food. Always busy, it's worth spending time having a drink or as a destination for a fine evening meal. I take nearly every visitor to the city there if I can.

The music venue at King's Place is a favourite of mine, particularly for chamber music. It has excellent acoustics and is laid out well. On top of this, they always program very interesting, varied content and showcase extended festivals, like the year-long Bach Unwrapped taking place during 2013. Easy to access (it's a stone's throw from King's Cross Station), it also features an Art gallery and some places to eat, including the quite tasty (but quite expensive) Rotunda. All in all, a great cultural destination and worth checking out the program for upcoming concerts and events.
