RIP: Elmore Leonard

Legendary author Elmore Leonard has died, aged 87. As well as being an author, Leonard has penned many film scripts all the way back to the 50s - including Joe Kidd and Mr. Majestyck. He saw a bit of a revival in the 90s with movies like Out of Sight, Jackie Brown and Get Shorty being made from his material. Recently he's seen a lot of success as the creator of Justified's leading character - Raylan Givens.

Do yourself a favour and read a copy of Tishomingo Blues.

False False Identity

Reading like a comment from @AdamBuxton's BUG show, I noticed this stickie tucked amongst the meticulously created false identies on one of the iPads in the Apple shop. It and must have taken the confused author quite a while to type out, unless it is sort of Apple strategy to appease the worries of potential buyers who weren't sure YOU HAVE TO PAY. MEAN SWOP PLUS PAY EXTRA.

Despite skateboarding getting more and more dominated by The Man (check out @Jenkemmag 's thoughts), it's always been unusual to see any skater who doesn't somehow fit the stereotype.

Radiohead

The O2

Uninspired show from one of my favourite bands, doing many of my favourite songs, close to my house.

The Beauty Inside

Lovely short film from Sundance winner Drake Doremus about a person who wakes up differently every day. Beautifully shot, with a great performance from Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

30 mins, split over 6 episodes. Ignore the fact it's funded by The Man.
