Seattle Sounds For Scholarship Funds

Grunge just doesn’t go away and fair enough too. The sound that birthed from those Seattle bands such as Nirvana, Mudhoney, Alice In Chains and Pearl Jam. And neither does education. So when it came down to raising funds for Music Industry College’s scholarship fund there were plenty of former and current students plus friends and associates who have put their hands up to help out and celebrate the Seattle sound at the same time. And it all goes down on Friday night, August 11. Bands include and tickets areRead More

Please don’t reboot Charmed

TV writer RHIANNON POPE takes a look back at cult 90s/00s TV show Charmed and why it doesn’t need a prequel reboot. Charmed was a television show in 1998 to 2006 following three/four sister who find out they’re witches destined to fight demons and other things that go bump in the night. Similarly to Buffy The Vampire Slayer the show was big on girl power and women in control but it also promoted the power of family and sisterhood which is why the Charmed reboot in the works is A Giant Mistake!!!!!

SK TV writer RHIANNON POPE puts on her rants pants about TV shows that don’t seem to know much about their fans. As you might have guessed I really like television. Telling a story over years gives the writers more of a chance to develop and grow the story. But…. there are a lot of times when someone in the crew be it actors, directors or writer have lapses in judgment. To fix this issue i’ve created a new job! The fan consultant. The fan consultant is a T.V fanRead More

Every now and then it is good to revisit those books that pass you by. BREE COYNE looks at Eleanor and Park. So I’ve been wanting to read Eleanor and Park for a while. Partially because it’s one of the most highly recommended books that have been suggested to me. But another reason I’ve wanted to read is because who wouldn’t want to read a book by someone called Rainbow Rowell?! After a long time of eyeing it off in the bookstore when I buy my weight in books, I finallyRead More
