Short, honest reviews you can rely on (as much as the government). Sex and the City (2008) "A Flawed Masterpiece" Sunshine Cleaning (2008) "Laugh...I nearly shat myself" The Passion of the Christ (2004) "A subtle portrayal of one man's torment" Dude, Where's My Car (2000) "Genius" Citizen Kane (1941) "Citizen Kane, is particularly Lame" The Blair Witch Project (1999) "Unashamedly unoriginal, uninspired and unrealistic.

Competition now closed. Thank you for all your entries. Congratulations to the winners Amanda Holiday and Hannah Stephenson ---- With the release of 'Skeletons in the Closet' our minds are now turned towards the next in this Lazy Gramophone Shorts series. The theme of this next booklet is 'Guilt'. We will be asking 6 artists to create an image based on or inspired by this theme. The finished images will then be passed onto a writer who will interpret the image into a short story or poem. The resulting pieces will be printed in a beautiful booklet with a letter pressed cover and high quality digital internal print to... read more

Matt Black is a long-time collaborator and member of Lazy Gramophone, contributing illustrations to our many publications, displaying work at our events - especially the successful ICA show in 2008 - as well as offering constant advice and critique. This month we have asked Matt a few questions to hopefully shed some further light on his dark arts. --- Lazy Gramophone: Chicken or egg? Matt Black: I am quite partial to both, but not at the same time. You can't beat a good dipping egg with soldiers though. LG: What's wrong with society today? MB: Don't get me started.... read more

"Six writers were asked to create a short piece of writing based on the theme of "Skeletons in the Closet". These writers were then teamed up with six artists and illustrators who were, in turn, asked to create an image based on or inspired by that piece of writing. ... and this is the result." So, our forthcoming limited edition print of Skeletons in the Closet, the first in the revival of the Lazy Gramophone shorts series, is almost upon us. Here at LG Studios we have been frantically working away on the letter... read more

It's been a long time coming and will be a long time here. The Record Industry is changing. No. It has changed. Beyond all recognition and predictability. It seems as though the people have finally spoken and are voting with their feet... OK, er, fingers, as the shift to digital download continues in the face of the Industry's attempts to halt it in its tracks, pardon the pun. Strange that so many have yet to cotton on to this and still rely on 'Who's signed to Who' as a mark of quality and calibre in an artist. No sir. Those days are long gone. Why not ask yourself: Who's our generation's Stevie Wonder? Who's our Pink Floyd? Who's our Bob Dylan? Kate... read more

This journal is the second in a series of pieces I expect to write about those certain 'elements' of life that inspire and influence my writing. I think it's important to acknowledge these elements, as essentially they represent the root of our craft, they are the seeds that precede the fruit of our labour, the 'components' without which our thoughts, our images, our music, our words, simply would not exist. I hope you enjoy my ramblings and in return I would love to hear all about the things that inspire and influence you. After all, "without sharing, the imagination becomes little more than an echo of itself." ... read more

Naturally comparisons are dismal, worthless drivel - exercises in pointless dot-joining given to grammar school students to occupy their time. Others, such as rabidly polemical politicos, rely on comparisons of the sloppiest variety as rhetorical sport which exacerbate the condition of argument bloat, fabricating entire straw populations their effete hatred can bash away on. This we know, yet there is also a capacity to leverage comparison for the humorous effect of juxtaposition as a heuristic device. The readers here are most likely too old for geography lessons about places so dreary and of little interest, and yet this is precisely what we... read more

...but it might just be the reason we go on to win! I'm not one for football analysis usually but I'm sure I am not the first to notice that our national side is a bit of an anomaly. With England's final group stage game against Slovenia looming, I think it's time we sorted this out. (I should explain that I may refer to England as 'we' because I'm English and they are representing me in this tournament. However, outside of international football, I am not condoning the use of the royal 'we' to refer to the particular team someone decided to ally their selves with that week, as if they're some integral part of the squad.) ... read more
