Inside The Actors Studio is perhaps one of the finest TV shows ever. I've been a fan for years, watching host James Lipton surprise the hell out of actors, directors and playwrights from Deniro to Scorcese, Clooney to Streep, delivering an utterly amazing masterclass into how and why these acclaimed hollywood peeps do what they do so well. Here we have perhaps one of the best episodes yet, the cast from Familiy Guy. I'm still laughing...

When was the last time you watched a movie and it inspired you so much you watched it twice in a row? Well, that's what just happened to me with Searching For Sugar Man, a brilliant doci about the musician known as Rodriguez, who some say was/is better than Bob Dylan but went largely unnoticed for over 30 years. So imagine my luck as I was on a flight back from Burning Man and there it was in the list of bazillions of films Virgin Atlantic offers you. I had heard good things about this doci and I thought, you know what, fuck Hollywood for a second and let me watch something South African. Yup, this Sundance-winning film is the brainchild of some lovely South African folks determined to present an unbelievable story to the world, and that they do in mother-flippen spades. Beautifully tragic, goosebump stuff. Do your heart a favour and watch this film.

Every year, 60,000 of my closest friends and I disappear, to the giant reset button in the Nevada desert known as Burning Man. Every year it flippen amazes me. Now, I'm not going to go into how awesome it was or how I feel now that I'm back in the default world or how, yet again, my life has been beautifully affected by the citizens of Black Rock City... As a good friend of mine says, "Trying to explain Burning Man to those who've never been is like trying to describe colour to a blind person." Unless you go, you'll never really see what it's all about. What I can do, however, is show you a few images I've collected from across the net (The Guardian, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone) that vaguely capture some the magic in the hopes that one or more of you will look upon them, want the look that's on my face on yours and join me next year on the Playa. Fair?
