Coming from a theatre and performance background, and being a celluloid aficionado, it only seemed right that Stewart aka theLingoGuy pursued this through his other passion of writing. He is also very excited by the theatre and documentary scene developing locally, particularly English Theatre Leipzig, DOK and GlobalLE. However, he keeps an eye on the ground breaking stuff in the Fringe, Slam poetry, Battle Rap and the many fusion genre TV series and films. As you can see, you can expect a diverse palette of stage and screen choices, as well as other passions that he will paint from with his words.

Our regular MoviesAndTV columnist, a Leipzig lover, today shares with us what he has discovered over the years about what has historically and culturally made our city a sort of “crossroads of Europe,” writing that “living here, you really feel the change from a provincial to not only a pan-European city, as in the past, but one with an international flavour and a beat in the streets.”

Another kind of rock band I like, in a different vein, is Fun Lovin Criminals, and along with a lot of Brits who grew up with TFI Friday, we can easily picture Huey (the lead singer) in our heads. “Scooby Snacks” (song Number Three here) is one of their great numbers, but also has samples of two of my favourite Tarantino films, namely Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs.

By Stewart Tunnicliff As a fan of films, people always ask me which actors I really like. Usually they have to act in diverse projects, not shy away from blockbusters or smaller films, spice it up with accents, and not fall for typecasting. We have all been disappointed by great actors who start well and…

“Vikings” TV series review

in Arts/Culture / Entertainment/TV
http://www.imdb.com/

Vikings is a series I returned to after being disappointed watching the first episode. Being very interested in early clan and nomadic folk from an early age, I thought a series from The History Channel would be compelling and have some
