It's time to talk about FAT! The three ­letter word we seem to have learned to hate! It has such negative connotations, and we have been programmed into avoiding it at all costs BUTTTTTT there are GOOD fats as well as BAD. And these good fats can actually HELP you to lose weight!!

Has a record company ever taken you to dinner? I know that Jeffrey Lewis has some strong thoughts about that, but I have been lucky enough to have a few of these dinners, some in honour of me, some in honour of others, but never in Tokyo (until now).

Buble has an Instagram account to which he regularly posts photos of himself and his very aesthetically pleasing family, as well as various tropical locations, music related images, him in a flash car and... well... kittens. So far very innocuous...until now.

Why should a size 20 or 30 girl not be able to go out and buy the same clothes that her size 10 friends can? What good do we expect to come from it? We have had specialised plus size clothing stores for over a decade now. Has the world buckled and conformed to traditional healthy BMI standards? NO. Is the situation actually worse than ever now? Apparently so.

Okay, I know, it's slacker and 'Oh-So-Western' to go to Starbucks when we should be eating the more traditional okayu (rice porridge), tamagoyaki (an omelette type of thing), tsukemono pickles (random pickled things), nori (dried seaweed) & natto (fermented soy beans).

Happy Birthday, Father Ted

Everything just came together for the show. Ireland had just emerged from the 80s and early 90s with a bit of cultural clout, however overblown or naff many of our exports were, so the timing was good for a sitcom about the place.

Romania has been a constant presence at the London Book Fair since 2007 and I pay my tribute of admiration to so many writers, publishers, translators and literary promoters who, along these eight years, have showcased the excellence of Romanian literature and established lasting relations between Romania and the UK.

I'm in the midst of research for my next book. I feel like while I'm learning about what happens in our brains, I'm learning about 'me' and what I can do about it. Hurrah! I don't feel so crazy.

The Cast of 'Twin Peaks' Restore My Faith in Humanity

When David Lynch tweeted that negotiations had broken down and that he was walking away, I had a load of questions. The first thirty-seven of these questions all consisted of the word 'WHY?' screamed heavenwards at an uncaring God as I stood shirtless in a rainstorm. The thirty-eighth question was 'Well, what now?'

I wrote this blog, because so many women have been asking me if I can help them to change from someone who is eternally seeking to be "thin", trying every fad diet, wasting their lives looking for the next "skinny" fix, and are miserable in the meantime. They want to know how they can lose that mindset and get healthy and strong instead...

28-year-old Drake looked pretty damn horrified when 56-year-old Madge finally released him from her embrace. Which got me thinking: Would the world still think the kiss was funny if Madonna was a guy and Drake was a girl?

There's a crumpled old lady, taking the late afternoon air on the steps at the entrance to the abandoned mansion. 85 rupees to show us round, she says. That's about £1.50, and, as with the temples we've visited over the last weeks, we must take off our shoes and leave them at the entrance.

This second installment will not be a blog about jet lag because seriously how boring would that be? But it would be unfair not to mention it because it is significant. I.e. Day one actually lasted two days, one of which was spent on planes.

Life has to be more than just being about what's absolutely necessary, we have a network around us which needs an element of input and equality in order to thrive. What is a life without wonderful friendships and relationships? All contributing to adding layers and enriching our experience along whatever direction we pursue, it can be a lonely path when selfishness prevails, even if it is only because you initially just wanted to cope and not let anyone down.

The first act While We're Young, the new movie from Noah Baumbach, rings so true, it was like having my head stuck in a bell tower with a group of over enthusiastic campanologists.

Creating Equal Opportunities for Film, Television and Games Careers

Sara Putt

This year will see the first students who paid tuition fees of £9,000 a year graduate from their degree courses. The idea of spending thousands more on a postgraduate course specifically focussed on film, television or games could seem like one more hurdle too many for some people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.
