Simone Felice, of The Felice Brothers, has a new album coming out and here’s a single from it, ‘Running Through My Head‘. Beautiful, earworm-worthy tune.
A new story collection is out called ‘Dangerous Women‘ from some very popular authors – Diana Gabaldon, Lev Grossman, George R R Martin. Do you need to know more to add this to your to-read list? Read the review.
Speaking of dangerous women, here’s the 2014 Stella Prize longlist. This is Australia’s all-female literary award. Some good ones there.
Poet, Kwame Dawes, continues his Olympic poetry – which should be a book-length collection, really, they’re so good. This latest is a rather funny one about Bob Costas’ eyes, if you’ve been following that story.
Even Hemingway barely passes the Hemingway test. There’s an app for that, you know.
These 3 animated shorts about phone conversations from Dustin Grella are quite good.
A selection of some amazing entries for the 2014 International Garden Photographer of the Year – many of these are not quite what you’d expect. Take a look.
Hollywood movies re-imagined as Ottoman art. So imaginative.
