Blog 'Vacation'...

This is just a quick post to let you know that I'm going to be having a little blogging holiday for the next few days. 
It's the first time I won't be posting every day for almost 2 years now so it feels very odd, but I think it's needed! 
For a start I myself shall be away visiting family and secondly I think the break will allow me to refocus my thoughts and ideas to come back to Enthralled fresh. 
I shall see you next week with my August Top 20!
But for now I shall leave you with a song I've been loving today...

Films To Watch

As we head out of Summer and into the 'For Your Consideration' portion of the year (my favourite time!) there are a few films that I am excited to see! Asides from the big ones such as Anna Karenina there are some smaller films that have shown at Sundance that are very much worth a look at...

Firstly we have Hello I Must Be Going. Starring Christopher Abbott fresh from the fantastic Girls. along with Melanie Lynskey (Up In The Air) stars and it looks like this could be her best performance yet. Have a look at the trailer...

Music Monday #43

It's that time of the week again where I run down my top 5 songs that I've loved this week. I've been away a lot recently so my music choices have been a little stagnant. Hopefully that'll soon change as we head into the Autumn - the time I believe to be the most exciting for new music!

Coldplay - Don't Panic

I don't think there is enough Coldplay on this blog! And this song has been stuck in my head all day so is appropriate enough for my Tune of the Day!
And what a weird yet brilliant little video too! 
I've been in an odd place recently - I recently got a job and yet leaving school has been a bit of a scary time. 'Don't Panic' just about sums it up!

BBC Original British Drama Autumn 2012

I've been pretty excited about some new BBC dramas recently - especially as Autumn always brings us the best ones and, as it already feels like Autumn now the sun seems to have gone away already, it couldn't come any sooner. Asides from the big ones such as Doctor Who and Merlin this recently released trailer gives us some sneaky previews of what's to come. And it looks pretty darn good. And hopefully worth the wait...

Porter Robinson - Language

This song has been stuck in my head the past few days and it's hard not to see why. Beautiful complex melody, haunting singing - it's the perfect summer anthem really!
