Just got back from watching #logan so I'll try to keep this as non spoiler as I can - this movie was epic/heart racing/heart warning/ heart breaking, it is a one of a kind superhero movie that did not even need to show any power at all, the story is the power in itself.

X-23 my God she was absolutely amazing, it's not everyday you see someone that outshines wolverine and she did just that, I can not wait to see more of her, in this movie and others, she is an amazing young actress.

Professor Xavier will pull on your heart strings, Xavier and Logan will make you feel the whole Xmen universe is our universe, they just made it real.
This movie is not only the best xmen movie, I am going to go all the way and say it is one of if not the best comic based movie I have watched, congratulations to all the cast and crew, the world thanks you and we will miss you @TheHughjackman @sirpatstew

My silly husband and a french fry. // We saw #Dunkirk tonight. The sound design was excellent and overall it was well done, but it still fell a bit short for me. The plot was about a single event: rescuing thousands of soldiers trapped on a beach. Because of this, the self-contained nature of the film didn't really allow for much focus on character development. In true Nolan fashion, he messes with time in the film. Dunkirk highlights events that occurred over the course of one month, one week, and one hour, and yet these separate events somehow form a cohesive whole. The Hubs and I give it a unanimous 3.5/4 stars. #microreview

Congratulations to my friends over at @armaspecusa in having their excellent AST-90 Assisted Short Throw selector included in the @gunstruction app! As I reported late last week, they sent me an evaluation unit, and my hopes were that it performed as well as the demo unit I had seen at SHOT show, and I'm happy to report that it does! Upon movement of the switch to around the 45 degree angle, the specially formed detent channel continues the disengagement of the safety automatically down through and to the 90 degree position. This gives you the quick disengagement advantages of a traditional short throw switch, and prevents the accidental re-engagement of the safety during use of the firearm by having the lever fully in the 90 degree position. As always, the fit and finish of the AST-90 is top notch, adding a bit of stylishness without straying too far from the traditional switch appearance. These are available now through @armaspecusa website (accessible through their profile page) and through Armaspec dealers.

Here is our micro review for the @yoyofactory Heist, pick yours up on YoYoTricks.com now!
#YoYoTricks #Heist #MicroReview

I enjoyed #JürgenPartenheimer @whitecube today, 'his abstract works are characterised by their variable, multidimensional language of forms, lightness of touch, striking use of colour and poetic approach', says the text.
I wandered around a few times and had that sense of the studio presence in evidence, with drawing placed centrally in the work, a figuring it out approach. Glimpses and snatches, visual notes. Small works on paper that seem more important than the side on larger canvas works. A new artist to me and one to research further. #microreview #drawing #painting

Me queda nada para terminarlo!!! 😊😊 #tercerosinascensor de @laraserodio es mi #currentlyreading 📚📚📚 ¿Y el vuestro?
En breve #microreview.

Lovely aesthetic, but not that nice to use... they slip off the plate when you do that thing where you put the cutlery on the the plate when you are done. #microreview

Comfortable to hold and exert pressure for cutting. Bit fiddly blade change but very secure seating once in. Easy to see your work around the handle. Embedded magnet a plus. #microreview #ergokiwi #kickstarter

temos grandes cenas de acção e uma banda sonora brutal. o elenco é um pequeno luxo, mas nem isso chega para mascarar o ritmo lento da narrativa. a história é bem menos ass-kicking que a protagonista... mais em breve. #microreview #atomicblonde #atvedaretorta

bonobo - migration 🐵⛰🔥 // i really love this record. it highlights the amazing diversity of @si_bonobo as a producer as it covers so many different styles. but at the same time - it's beautifully cohesive as a whole :: 👍🏻

sqürl - ep #260 🍂🥀 // jim jarmusch's band return with their trademark fuzz on this stellar ep. i first came across them through the 'only lovers left alive' soundtrack, and the first part of this ep delivers true to form on that sound. it's rounded out by two curious remixes that give a much more industrial flavour to the work, but are stunning nonetheless :: 👍🏻

Absolutely stunning meal @ellorylondon on Saturday night. Such simple, yet thoughtful combinations which elevated the natural, vibrancy of the produce without overdoing it.

The octopus with lardo and coco de pampiol beans was my favourite dish and a perfect meeting of shore and sea. Wafer thin, salty pork fat glistening atop the meltingly tender tentacle, hearty beans bringing things back to earth & the lemony squid ink sauce tying it all together. Divine.

nine inch nails - not the actual events 🖤 // @nineinchnails famously trolled us all with the physical component of this ep, which was packed full of a strange (and extremely messy) black powder which went everywhere upon opening. the black mess is a reasonable metaphor for this record - which turns up the noise compared to the more recent 'add violence' ep. not as listenable, but certainly a strong ep from the amazing @treznor :: 👍🏻

Vigdis Hjorth - Arv og miljø (2016). This was an impressive read! It's a thick book, but I finished it in no time at all. It's about a family conflict, a funeral and child abuse and it created a lot of debate here in Norway last year, because it was so close to the author's real life. And this week the author's sister wrote a "revenge novel", about the same family drama.
I won't go in to the story, but if you like a really well written book that's easy to read but still stays with you afterwards, this is the book for you 👍👍👍 .

nine inch nails - add violence ep 🔩🔫 // stretching over a music career of nearly 30 years, this ep proves that despite ups and downs over that period, @treznor is one of the most prevailing artists of this generation. @nineinchnails have remained relevant despite huge shifts in the scene, and this short ep demonstrates that whilst being true to their dark industrial roots, they can also demonstrate their humanity :: 👍🏻

valeu a pena a espera. uma vez mais, uma experiência de cinema de topo, proporcionada por um dos mais adorados realizadores da actualidade. se ainda não viram, preparem-se ! prometo que vai valer a pena. #dunkirk #microreview #movie #atvedaretorta

tennis - cape dory 🐳🏓 // the final in my @tennisinc series. their gorgeous debut album was written on the sea, and evokes saltwater at every turn. this wonderful pop record still sounds as fresh today as the day it was released back in 2011 :: 👍🏻

'Baby Driver' Edgar Wright has this special skill that makes his films unique and fun. He is able to balance many aspects of filmmaking while telling stories that are highly enjoyable. "Baby Driver" is another great example of this. It feels so good to have a fresh and new story. A story that is fun, thrilling, and ultimately enjoyable! Editing is one one of the most important aspects for me and this film excels in it. The music and sound design are so in sync its almost unbelievable because they merge so well that it feels unintentional. Major props to the editing team on this film. The characters were also another great aspect. The characters were cast really well. Ansel Elgort was great as Baby. His story was believable and even more so when he meets Debora, played amazingly by Lily James. Their love story feels fresh, very organic and realistic. One that you root for and hope it succeeds. The film is one that will be remembered for years to come for its uniqueness and storytelling. It's definitely one of 2017's best no doubt. Go and experience the ride that is #BabyDriver GRADE: A #Itsallatm #moviereview #filmreview #microreview #film #movie #review #anselelgort #edgarwright #lilyjames #2017

tennis - young & old 👶🏻👴🏻 // the second album from @tennisinc came out in 2012, and is easily my favourite. i'd go as far as to put it in my list of all time favourite albums. i've really got no idea how many times this record has gotten me through a bad traffic jam in the car or a stuffy commute on public transport. it's everything a great pop album should be, and takes me away to another place every time i hear it. every single track on it is catchy and memorable. do yourself a favour and add this to your collection if it isn't already part of it :: 👍🏻🙌🏻

Finalmente assisti Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann e o anime é excelente, com personagens marcantes e uma história que mostra que o ser humano poder ir além dos próprios limites.

tennis - ritual in repeat 🎾🌀 // next up in my @tennisinc series is this lovely album from 2014. despite being my least favourite of theirs, it's still a wonderful album with many highlights. it was their most polished sound of any album, but at times felt a little bit overdone. i think however over the years this one has grown on me more and more :: 👍🏻

¡Buenos días! Es viernes y día de #microreview! Para verlas todas, sigue a @haroldisonfire! 📖 Repost @haroldisonfire (@get_repost)

Si, dos días seguidos pasando por la tienda ¿Algún problema? Yo soy así...de pobre.

1⃣ Batman: Año Uno (edición deluxe, tomo único): Cuando uno se aproxima a una de estas obras totémicas uno tiene que hacerlo con un filtro, ponerse en la época en la que salió, entender lo que supuso para el medio y para el personaje. Sin embargo con "Año uno" no hace falta, si fuese publicada hoy sería tan cojonuda como cuando llegó a las estanterías por primera vez en 1988. Un Frank Miller en la cúspide de su carrera nos da no sólo el primer año de Bruce Wayne/ Batman si no que nos ofrece la perspectiva de un Jim Gordon que acaba de llegar a Gotham (para mí, el gran acierto de la obra). Los dos buscan hacer lo correcto a su manera hasta entender que se necesitan, dando pie al nacimiento del mejor bromance del noveno arte. Dibujado a la perfección por David Mazzucchelli que nos ofrece un rollito noir, a ratos realista a ratos mega dinámico que acaba de redondear una obra imprescindible. Si me engorilo haré una comparativa con la edición estándar.

2⃣Flash (serie regular 7,8,9): He de admitir que me he metido en Flash por ese evento llamado "The Badge" que me tiene arrancándome las uñas de los nervios. Aún así estoy disfrutando de la antesala, supongo que al ser la primera etapa que leo de Flash todo me parece nuevo y divertido. No preguntéis cómo funciona mi cerebro pero ahora mismo solo podría definir el apartado gráfico como veraniego y lo digo como algo bueno.

Combatid el calor leyendo cómics (no veo la relación pero yo lo intento) y pegad una visítilla a @metropolismca

tennis - yours conditionally 🏓 // @tennisinc are easily one of my all time favourite pop bands. i'll run you through all of their albums over the next few days - starting here with their most recent one. all of their albums are full of bright, beautiful, vivid music that encapsulates everything that good pop music should be. this album was a sort of return to form, closer in style to their first two albums, with 'ritual in repeat' being a bit of a deviation. full of really catchy songs - the album really comes to life in the latter half, with a couple of songs being some of the best material the band has written. more to come on their other albums... :: 👍🏻

Microreview: Atomic Blonde = My only gripe surprisingly is the soundtrack. The 80's had more than 99 Red Balloons for Christ's sake.

Vladimir Sorokin - The Blizzard (2011). A review of a book about a snow storm, accompanied by a picture of a stupid summer storm in Denmark that made the ferry to Norway take four hours instead of two.
And. I had to wade in lesser people's stomach contents 😂😂😂.
This was a strange book. It had miniature horses, and I mean miniature. They were smaller than the Smurfs 😮 But there also were gigantic horses, bigger than a house. And it is difficult to place in time. It's like it's set in a mix between today and the early 1900s. I didn't understand the symbolism and I didn't get what the author wanted to tell me. It's an odd blend of magical realism; historical fiction; and social criticism.
That said, it was an easy read; entertaining, even funny, and a fascinating look into contemporary russian literature.
Norwegian: Snøstormen.
Swedish: Snöstormen.

ben frost - threshold of faith ⚗️ // a gorgeous ep from @ethermachines to tease us before he releases his new album next month. i found his earlier work difficult to stomach, by over time either my taste has evolved or his work has evolved... likely a combination of both. but after his stunning rendition of 'the wasp factory', he has been impossible to ignore. some of his most melodic work to date is featured here, and his talent can't be faulted. very much looking forward to his next album, which you can preorder over at his bandcamp page :: 👍🏻
