Sorry I am late posting this but I forgot to hit schedule lol
So lets start off with something I watch every week when it is on…
I love the Voice because it is the Voice which determines the success not the look or marketability, I watch this while on the phone with my friend Debbie, we both sit in our respective homes and text back on forth numerous comments regarding our thoughts on performance, song choice and which judge they should go with, not all our texts would be suitable for a younger audience lol hence the reason we text rather than speak. This week was a battle round where they are supposed to go against each other but this to me was a perfect duet and I was gutted that they had to be split up, it would have been amazing had they formed a duet .
A comedy that begins with a suicide…
I remember watching this film when it first came out, well the first time it was shown on TV at any rate, I cannot believe it will actually be twenty years since this film was released in September, and though I cannot help but ponder the effect that technology would have on the formation of the club I hope that they never feel the need to remake it. The stars are each individually amazing, together they are outstanding and their chemistry is so good that I really cannot imagine another group of women being able to recreate it, plus lets face if few films give all the main roles to women past a certain age.
Something close to my heart…
I have contributed to a couple of crowdfunded projects and this is one of them am the producer Clare Eden is an amazing lady who I have become FB friends with, I have the beanie hat, sadly it does not suit me but I also have the signed Strangeness In Space art work you can see in the background, if you love quirky space/sci-fi adventures then check out the podcast, if you enjoy it (the episodes are free you can find them on i-tunes or at http://strangenessinspace.com/) and consider joining us mirthlings.
This is also from the Voice but I will explain why in a minute…
I love this song, but it is one where I generally hate any attempt at a cover version, however this does work mainly because they both put their own twist on it and neither was trying to be an exact copy of Sinead. I am also going to share another song from the Voice because even though I love this record it is performed so differently that it took me a little way in to really click that it was this song, again taking something that has been done before and making if totally different and unique.

They did a pretty good job with Nothing Compares. I like the fact it was a duet.
I really disliked Nothing Compares 2U on most levels and it’s not that I don’t think they have good voices, just not voices suitable to that song or the emotions of it.
Like you, I didn’t recognise Love will tear us apart sometime for a while. Maybe I’m just too fond of Paul Young’s version to easily take to this mangled version but again I liked their voices and as a duet too.
I’ve never actually seen this show on TV.
Great to see the wonderful First Wives Club here. I totally agree with your comments.This would be a film hard to match now.
