10 Greatest Live TV Moments of 2015

Now that all TV ends up getting archived on the internet somewhere, the gulf between that which is broadcast live, that which is broadcast as if live, and that which is edited for future enjoyment is getting smaller all the time.

Madonna Takes a Tumble at the Brit Awards

Let’s just get one thing clear before we start looking at the key moments from last night’s Brit Awards, nothing can possibly match the moment when Madonna, standing on a plinth and surrounded by dancers in dionysian states of ecstasy, was yanked backwards by her cape, coming a cropper three feet to the right in […]

Benedict Cumberbatch: “Everyone Wants Complicated Antiheroes”

It must be interesting being Benedict Cumberbatch right now.

Elizabeth Fraser, of the Cocteau Twins, coos a delicate “love, love is a verb. Love is a doing word” over a heartbeat bass drum. And the world suddenly spins […]

Americans Pretending To Be British Part 2: Madonna

It’s easy to see what American celebrities love most about the British Isles, besides our enviable landscapes and delightful way with clotted cream and a scone. England is seen as a haven for etiquette, deference and historical significance. If there was such a thing as The English Dream it would be discovering that you’re the […]
