500 Days of Summer

Does the anti-love story look set finally to surpass the fairy tale love story? With Twilight’s implausible success, followed by a Hollywood latch-on to anti heroes, this September Marc Webb is about to join the bandwagon with his 500 Days of Summer. Openly admitting ‘this is not a love story,’ the film centres around Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon Levitt) and Summer Finn’s (Zooey Deschanel) off beat and tumultuous so-called relationship. While for Tom it is love at first sight when meeting Summer, she on the other hand, is a part-time misanthropist, who refuses to believe in relationships, boyfriends, disparaging that […]

Cut loose at Cable

Back in the day of smiley faced acid house parties, Danny Rampling’s London Bridge Shoom Club was the destination for metropolis-bound ravers whose morning milk was the closest they fancied getting to a cow-pat. But fast forward 20 years of post rave and nu-wave and the Noughties club kids are reclaiming Southwark as their manor once more. Old railway arches lend themselves perfectly to ‘underground’ dance venues – just look at Vauxhall, Clerkenwell and Shoreditch – but until May of this year and the emergence of new superclub, Cable, Bermondsey Street was more of a bridge and tunnel pit-stop than […]

Best Dressed 09

  Best Dressed lists for 09 is named by Vanity Fair and it’s quite a list. Brad Pitt managed to make it on there for apparently his love of accessories. We hope they are talking about his love for accessories like sunglasses and man-bags not his children. But we must say Angelina Jolie does make a rather good accessory for him. Unfortunately she did not make this years prestigious list. There were some first time names like actresses Penelope Cruz and Anne Hathaway who both made it onto the women’s list which is not always easy. Also to make the list […]
