'High Hopes' for Springsteen's Future

For all those who think Bruce Springsteen is "Dad music that sucks" (a statement that is probably based solely on Dancing in the Dark and Born in the USA), I ask you to search beyond the only two songs you're likely to hear on the radio, because that's when you find the really good stuff. Delve into your parent's record collection and pull out something by Springsteen, because the chances are, you've still got time to make it to a pretty incredible show.

On 29 November 2001, former Beatles guitarist George Harrison died in Los Angeles of lung cancer, aged 58. This was a sad day, the second Beatle to leave us and at just 58. Who'd of thought that by the turn of the century, we would've lost two Beatles?

It occurred to me that maybe I was just as deluded as every one of these hopefuls who I had judged. Maybe I was just another desperate, fame-hungry, talentless nobody that the casting directors would just laugh at prior to sending me on my way home within seconds...

There Are No Blurred Lines Here - The Ban Is Unquestionably Needed

Sophie Jackson | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Sophie Jackson

For months, the debate over universities' decisions to ban Blurred Lines has remained heated. The obvious reason for the ban is that the song is rife with sexism and casual support of rape culture. There is no doubt that the song is sexist. Robin Thicke himself does not deny that it demeans women...

Working on Unreported World in a country like CAR is physically and emotionally draining. Painful even. At the end of it you come back to the UK with a load of footage and it's like arriving back from hospital with a new-born - that feeling I do know. You're filled with a mixture of fear and responsibility, knowing you have to do the story and the people justice.

Daisy Lindlar

Despite the empowering message of the song, the video for Hard Out Here has received a lot of criticism, particularly for it's supposedly racist undertones. However, I completely support Allen in what she is trying to achieve, and I wish that others - particularly women - would do the same.

Could Norway's Boring TV Be Your Next Audiovisual Addiction?

The Conversation UK | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
The Conversation UK

In 2009 the state broadcasting company NRK celebrated the centenary of one of the engineering wonders of the world, the East-West railway from Oslo to Bergen, in a characteristically Norwegian fashion. The famous journey was filmed and broadcasted not framed in grandeur or excitement, but in real time, slowly chugging, warts and all, over six hours, from beginning to end.

How difficult it can be at times to spot your grief for mummy. While we quite rightly do not use it as an excuse for every minor indiscretion, it is at times so glaringly obvious that the very worst you can ever throw at me is undeniably a direct consequence of the turmoil you occasionally feel inside. Yet although I know and accept its origins, why do I always allow it to hit me so personally and so deeply?

T. Anthony Patterson

Thank you for your speech Mr. Umunna but unfortunately you do not speak for me. While there is some merit to your remarks, I, for one am, quite annoyed and not having any of it. While its understood that the media should portray an all-encompassing image of black people in hopes of dispelling negative perceptions, your call to action will simply not work.

So if American accents historically sell better, why does Boy George's singing style sound so passé? One word: Adele. Oasis, Coldplay and the Arctic Monkeys may have paved the way, but in terms of commercial and critical success, Adele is a genuine game changer when it comes to British-sounding vocals.
