Created by Euston Films, the legendary Thames subsidiary whose hit series include The Sweeney and Minder, this razor-sharp mid-eighties drama stars Gary Olsen and Brian Bovell as East London likely lads who are always a few quid short of success and trying to make good in Thatcher’s Britain. Resourceful, lovable and ever optimistic, Pincy and Billy harbour an entrepreneurial ambition that Mrs Thatcher would surely endorse. But as the Docklands development begins to take shape, among the derelict wharves and impoverished streets of the Isle of Dogs the two friends can only lurch from one dodgy scheme to another; often on the wrong side of the law and in hock to everyone from the rent man to the local café owner, they’re still searching for The Big One – something with prospects...
Young warrior Ashitaka receives a wound that refuses to heal in a battle with a cursed beast. Searching for a remedy for the supernatural injury, he leaves his remote village for the forbidding forests of the west, where he finds a human enclave under siege from divine powers: deities of times past, the wolf gods, and San, a wild girl of the forest.Hayao Miyazaki's masterpiece depicts the clash between the natural world and its old gods, and the rise of humans and the beginnings of modern civilisation.

One of the biggest voices (and smallest bodies) in rock music belongs to Brooklyn´s own Mina Caputo.After garnering a massive following as the vocalist for the world - renowned rock - alt/metal outfit Life of Agony, Caputo?s honed a reputation for touching listeners to the very depths of their souls with her poetry; her heartrending live performances is well - earned:Within a single show, she is capable of inciting arena - sized mosh pits in addition to breathless silence.Throughout the last twenty years, Caputo recorded sixteen diversely influential albums ? not including demos, live records or EPs ? with an impressive who?s who of industry veterans, including bassist and trumpet player Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), guitarist Craig Ross (Lenny Kravitz, Eric Clapton , Sheryl Crow), pianist Zac Rae (Fiona Apple, Miley Cyrus, Annie Lennox), producer Martyn Lenoble (Jane?s Addiction, Scott Weilan, Porno for Pyros, Mark Lanegan, The Cult), mixer Greg Fidelman (Rage Against The Machine, Marilyn Manson, Johnny Cash), mixer Mike Shipley (The Cars, Queen, Aerosmith, Joni Mitchell ), and most recently, producers Sylvia Massey (Tool, Life of Agony, System of a Down) and Joey Z. for Life of Agony?s 2019 release, ?The Sound of Scars.? On the festival circuit, she has shared stages with multitudes of varying genre titans, among themColdplay, Nine Inch Nails, Björk, David Bowie, Pixies, Velvet Revolver, Bush, Slipknot, Red Hot Chili Peppers,Laura Jane Grace, Modest Mouse, Aphex Twin, Foo Fighter, and more.With distinctive influences ranging from Led Zeppelin and The Doors to Arthur Rimbaud and William S. Burroughs, Mina is unafraid to mine new musical territory, as evidenced by her most recent releases:?A Fondness for Hometown Scars,? ?As Much Truth as One Can Bear, and ?Love Hard.?Mina also has frequently co - collaborated with Grammy - nominated multi - instrumentalist producer Andy Kravitz (Cypress Hill, Billy Joel, Imogen Heap, Julianna Hatfield), whom she met during the Life of Agony?Soul Searching Sun? recording sessions in the late 1990s. Kravitz co - produced and was heavilypresent on her last two albums, ?Love Hard? and ?As much Truth as One Can Bear,? as well as on herambient geek - rock duo side project with Ryan Oldcastle as The Neptune Darlings with their tworeleases, ?Chestnuts and Fireflies? and ?Principium Sequentia.?Obsessed with hard truths, Caputo remains an intrepid conquistador of her own pain. Orphaned byheroin - addicted parents, Mina was forced to grow up in a dark world of poverty, violence and crime.And while themes of abuse and abandonment may seem familiar to those who follow her work, Caputoinnovatively sheds new light on these subjects with every song she creates.As unorthodox as her lyrical content can sometimes be, the most surprising aspect about Caputo is her undying romanticism ? her unwavering insistence on seeing the silver lining in every cloud. As Mina herself says, ?From my own feelings of displacement, dissatisfaction and yearning, comes a vast sea of compassion.?

The Blevins family had been searching many months for their dream home out in the country because the city life just wasn't their cup of tea. Then just as they were about to give up there was a sign next to a gravel road that said, "Sudden death in the family caused our beautiful home to be put up for sale, please don't pass up this great deal of a lifetime." "John, turn here, maybe this is what we've been searching for," replied his wife. "Are you sure? This gravel road looks long and it's beginning to storm, why don't we just go home and try in the morning when the weather is better," said her tired husband. "We're already here, we may as well check it out and get out of this rain, besides the rain will probably let up by the time we're through looking at the house," Mary asked in a reassuring tone of voice."Fine, you win, let's check it out," said her frustrated husband. John drove on up the muddy gravel road as the storm got more intense and could barely see the house because of the rain, his car inched closer to the front of the house.John and Mary's son chimed in and said, "Mom! Dad! Look over there?" "Look at what?" said his mother."There's a man walking in the front door with an ax," said Billy in a frightened voice. "I don't see anyone Billy, you must be imagining things," replied his mother. "I'm not imagining things, I saw a man entering the house," said Billy frustratingly. 1. Language: English.
