Edinburgh Celebrates British Films

A nice write-up about Brakes at theartsdesk.com, along with another film, Always, staring Timothy Spall and Juno Temple. The author praises both Julian and Julia's performance, along with Noel and Mercedes', along with the feel of the film: 

"But there’s an honesty about it, a refreshingly anti-romcom spirit, and such humour that I’m expecting more from Grower. Away is released in cinemas in October, and hopefully Brakes will get the break it deserves and follow suit."

Gore, I Love These Guys!

I've been a bit awol this week. Life stuff. But let's get going again, and this picture of Noel and Joe are a great place to start. From Louise Smith's Twitter.

More On Brakes

Check out this Velvet Onion interview with Mercedes Grower about the 4-year journey that was the making of Brakes. Although Noel has mentioned it on occasion, I didn't realize it had been in the works for that long, nor how many of the "the gang" were involved. Oliver Ralfe and Joseph Lynn were also included in production. It sounds interesting and I hope the movie gets a chance to be seen.

Why Flowers Was More Than Just Great Television

This review of Flowers is written by Chris Brosnahan on his blog here. I so loved this show and hope one day to buy the box set, but in the mean time, it's nice to see others' opinions of it. I still see it as a drama more than a comedy, no matter how dark it is labeled, but Chris mentions the humor of it. And he's not wrong. It's uncomfortable at times, and heartbreaking, but there is a certain amount of humor, also. Dark, understated humor. I just loved it. 

"Personally, I'm grateful to everyone involved for getting it made. It’s beautiful, it’s heartfelt and it still manages to be incredibly, cruelly, funny. It’s one of the more nuanced depictions of depression that I've seen in some time and I suspect it will help some conversations that people need to have."

Selfie Treasure

Noel has gifted us with another Selfie Treasure on Instagram. "You look like you've seen a fucking ghost!" Whatever the inspiration, it's a gorgeous shot!

Accidental Activists

Josie Naughton, Lliana Bird and Dani Lawrence from Help Refugees.

I follow Birdie on Twitter, so I've followed her thought this journey. It has to be so frustrating, caring so much and trying to make our world a better place, and yet it has to be like holding onto water sometimes. I'm glad these ladies are getting the recognition they deserve! Read about them here in the Guardian.

It Was That Kind of Evening

From Joseph Lynn's Instagram. How's come some guys look so good in dresses and others just look ridiculous. Wait, come to think of it, that kind of works with women.

Noel Art

Noel's been painting again (this is just a sample--there are quite a few more). He's been running around doing this and that lately and I've noticed after he does that, he seems to spend a few days posting artwork. It must be his way to mentally come down when he's been "on" for a number of weeks. And then he posts it--on Instagram, on Twitter. Which is good!

More about "Bubbles"

As I predicted, the comments on the video were rather divided. I don't normally read comments, just because of the trolls and people can get rather nasty for no good reason except that they can. But I really was curious this time. Anyway, what I read was mainly "why would Sean do this? He was Michael's friend?" I didn't really see anything too nasty about Noel and Mike. Of course, maybe if I had kept reading... Anyway, if you want Sean's thoughts on it, you can read them [here].

The Claypool Lennon Delirium - Bubbles Burst

So a few months back there was a picture of Noel dressed as Michael Jackson, and Mike as a monkey. Oh, my dear, what have you done? I see the humor in it, but I bet he's going to get some shit over this!

Throw-Back Thursday

So how's about some Noel and Paul for our Thursday? The roadkill is purely a bonus!
