Recent cultural consumption has included –
Generation Kill – 7-part mini-series from the makers of The Wire which follows a company of US marines during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Brutal and very funny. See clip below.
In the Loop – biting political satire with creative swearing and the best cameo ever by Steve Coogan. “Fuckety-bye!”
Re-read A Martian Sends a Postcard Home by Craig Raine, which I enjoyed a thousands times more than when I first read it. I don’t get why the bad rep.
Third Wish Wasted by Roddy Lumsden – recommended.
Wolf by MacGillivray. Haunting, uncomfortable, beautiful folk by Kirsten Norrie.
