  2. Hurricane Ophelia

    Not a lot of chat about this on the usual media channels, but we've got a hurricane heading towards us (Most easterly hurricane since we started keeping records apparently) and it's likely to get fairly blowy towards the end of tomorrow. The National Hurricane Centre in the US have said it's still...

    Hopefully we will now see the last of the appalling casting couch culture. I suspect the HW allegations are only the tip of the iceberg. It is worth noting that this situation does not only apply to women. There have been suggestions in the past that James Dean may have 'succumbed' to forward his...
