The ability to create a vibe for an entire room to dance and let go is such an incredible way to connect with music and share your connection with other people. In particular the ability to build and mix a playlist to extreme heights and then drop a beat and see the whole crowd go nuts is just amazing.

The pieces on show are also not exciting. There's a couple that catch the eye at the start of the exhibition, such as Aztec-print beachwear from Pucci's first collection and some very elegant evening dresses in lace and ruffles from early pacesetters such as Simonetta and the Fontana Sisters, but it all peters out very quickly after the promising start.

If you're planning a wedding in the near - or distant - future, take a tip from a celebrity: the rich and famous don't always pick the most lavish locations. Instead, they tend to seek out unique venues far from the madding crowds (and the prying lenses of the paparazzi).

Kate Middleton: The Ultimate 'Slut Antidote'?

Women aren't one-dimensional. No woman is either a madonna or a whore. But our habit of putting famous people into easily identifiable boxes means celebrity women often come off this way. The way famous women represent themselves and their brand... does tend to make them figureheads for a certain 'kind of woman'.

Monday morning and the festivities of 420 and Bradford Street was awash with new pieces from the famous and infamous of Birmingham's street art scene. Alive and kicking, but just not very good at blowing it's own trumpet. So, as an adopted son of this city, that's where I will happily step in and learn to play the trumpet.

It's easy to forget, given that we view it every week in our homes, that a TV show can be art. Mad Men is a work of art which is great whether you believe art should be appreciated for its style alone or also for its content.

Record Store Day Isn't for Everyone, But It Is for Me and Lots of People Like Me

Tim Burgess | Posted 18.06.2014 | UK Entertainment
Tim Burgess

Yes, I'm an ambassador for Record Store Day (that's even official). Yes, I have a single out on Record Store Day. Yes, my label is releasing a long lost track of Dub Sex (recorded by the legendary Martin Hannett, available in participating outlets). Yes, I have a list of records that are out that day that I'd like for my own collection. But does this make me biased? Yes, of course it does but it doesn't mean I can't have my say. I've heard the grumbles about there being too many releases, even conspiracy theories about major labels clogging up the schedules of pressing plants so that small labels can't get their stock in time. But, for me, these are good problems to have.

Ask Anyone Who Can Remember Britpop Where They First Heard It, and the Answer Is Usually Radio 1

Joe Harland | Posted 16.06.2014 | UK Entertainment
Joe Harland

Where did you first come across London Grammar? Perhaps on the radio, though of course you could also have found it on Spotify, or via a shared link on Facebook. Where did you first get an earful of German Whip? It might have been on DAB, but equally it may have been Tumblr, or via Playlister, or on YouTube. However, ask anyone who can remember Britpop where they first heard the anthems of that era, and the answer is usually a great deal simpler: Radio 1.

Was the End of Monday's 'Game of Thrones' Episode as Satisfying as Expected?

Game of Thrones fans across the world had been waiting for years for the death of King Geoffrey Baratheon, and today the public's wishes were granted, he died a painful death. However I do wonder whether his much anticipated demise has been as satisfactory as expected.

Why Do I Comedy?

I do it because I think every single human being is capable of wonderful things, and I don't think anyone is stupid. I just think that a lot of us, myself included, don't know enough and if we were more thoughtful, looked deeper into issues and knew more, we could as a society be making better decisions and live in a far better world.

Why the BBC's Worth It

Wendy Jones

As the corporation gears up to negotiating the renewal of the Royal Charter and defending the licence fee (why Ian Fletcher was brought in, after all), W1A is a reminder of why the BBC is worth it. Ok, there are a few other reasons, like BBC News and Radio 4 and live music and (now) the World Service.... You don't have to like them all, just enough of them.
