Sarah Slean's Magical Mystery Tour
Tiny singer with giant voice tunes up


Sarah Slean is laughing hysterically. All aspects of a "proper" interview went out the window with one question: does she consider herself a celebrity?.



THEATRE REVIEW: Wang Dang Doodle

Looking for men dressed as women, musical solos on a comb and random appearances from God? Then look no further: Wang Dang Doodle has invaded the stage at The Grand Theatre and is looking to woo audiences from across London.
 




MOVIE REVIEW: Bringing Down the House

Bringing Down the House is a "fish out of water" comedy that you'll want to cast back into the ocean.

Bringing is the newest incarnation of a long-running joke in popular culture: the fish out of water scenario, or in this case, the ghetto-girl-in-upper-middle-class-America film. From start to finish, the film reaffirms every negative stereotype of African-Americans, while also illustrating their positive attributes: their closeness with teenagers and usefulness to hard-working white people who have forgotten how to live.
 




Anti-social?
This won't help


If you're planning on picking up a copy of the new video game EverQuest Online Adventures (Playstation 2), be prepared to kiss your social life goodbye. The game is like crack-cocaine – the minute you plug in, you're addicted.
 




Whoa, Maggie: Pop goes the world

Pop music has a bad rap.

With that single statement, I've probably just dropped about 10 spots in the coolness rankings of the cutthroat world of rock 'n' roll journalism. No matter, I stand by my opinion: the word "pop" has suddenly and undeservedly become a synonym for anything insincere and manufactured.
     



CD REVIEW: Tim Easton
Heartbreaker's Blues


Easton's music is grounded in a fine tradition of American (and Canadian) troubadour songwriters who know how to blend blues and rock influences into their own compositions. Break Your Mother's Heart is Easton's third and best record so far.
