“In Bruges” Martin McDonagh, Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson Re-Team for “The Banshees of Inisheer”!

In Bruges

Martin McDonagh is a superstar playwright who has ventured into the film world with some great results, as writer/director of “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (starring Frances McDormand, nominated for Oscar’s Best Picture), and of “In Bruges”, a dead-on classic with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. See it now if you haven’t already!

Word is that he’s reteaming with Colin and Brendan on a new film titled “The Banshees of Inisheer”. Inisheer is the smallest of the three Aran Islands off the Irish coast, with the other two islands figuring in two other McDonagh plays, one called “The Lieutenant of Inishmore” and the other “The Cripple of Inishmaan” (saw it on Broadway with Daniel Radcliffe, loved it). A trilogy, it seems.

I hope there’s a part for Frances McDormand! Well, whatever the case, I’ll be in line to see it.

Having found the perfect meta name for a band, Matt Johnson released “Soul Mining” in 1983 under the band name The The. Although Matt was subject to a bidding war and got a huge advance from the winning label, the record sounds like it was recorded in a bedroom; still, the homemade vibe enhances its authenticity, with intensely private thoughts and emotions set to a cheap drum machine. There was enough polish, however, to make it sound sensational, especially when

Album Challenge Day 8: Take That’s “Beautiful World”

This is the greatest pop band that America’s never heard of. And what a story! Picture It: 1990. A British gay club in the middle of nowhere hosting a boyband of five straight lads, absolutely adorable even though their lead singer, Gary Barlow, thinks he’s fat and a bad dancer. Their manager, Nigel Martin-Smith, feels their path to stardom for his manufactured group is through the gays; he’s right because Take That eventually becomes a British phenomenon, unique in singing
