Dunkirk

I wasn’t going to for various reasons, but here are a few rambly, off-the-cuff thoughts about Dunkirk. Please don’t read this and think I know anything about anything, because I don’t. But I did really enjoy this film, and I’m in the mood to share. This film was – to quote someone at my cinema…

Spider Man & Baby Driver – a non-review

I’ve actually been going to the cinema again lately, believe it or not. In the last week, I’ve been to see Spider Man: Homecoming and Baby Driver, and tonight I’ve got tickets to see Dunkirk. I don’t normally feel the urge to write about films anymore, but I miss blogging, so here are a few…

Harry Styles: The Album

In which Camilla attempts (and fails) to briefly give her opinions on Harry Styles’ debut album, and does manage to sound incredibly silly by talking about herself in the third person. I wrote half of this in a bout of insomnia at 4am last night, so let’s blame anything weird on that, okay? Okay. It’s no…

Music April ’17

One of the good things that have come from my recent months of unemployment is a sudden increase in time spent perusing parts of Spotify I haven’t seen before. I think I mentioned in a previous post how I only recently signed up for streaming services. I don’t know why it took so long, but…

On My Playlist: March 17

After a while of prioritizing podcasts, videos and reading I’ve started listening to more music again. The result is that when I was extremely sleep deprived the other day I just sat down and wrote a lot of stuff about whatever artists came to mind. This is a somewhat edited version of the mess that…

Meaning Where There Is None

[This was originally posted in 2014 on a separate blog as a part of a university assessment and is therefore fairly different from anything else I publish on here. This is a travelogue and is meant to be an example of how to write the city through music. It is weirdly personal, and probably one of…

Troye Sivan: Blue Neighbourhood

Had you asked me 4 days ago whether or not I would write a blog post about Troye Sivan my answer would not have been yes. But things happen. I get curious, then I fall down the rabbit hole and come out again with all of these thoughts in my head. So here are some…

SKAM: My Shameless Love Letter

  Shameless, get it? Because Skam means shame? Anyway, now that we’ve established just how not funny I am, let’s start this post. I’m sure it will be long enough without my bad puns. A little back story I guess: I am Norwegian but I have for the last four years been living in London…

2016 Autumn/Winter Playlist Highlights

This post has been in my drafts for so long that by now this list feels a bit outdated. After some tweaking it does at least partially represent the music I’ve been listening to for the last six months, if not the stuff I listen to most right now. Maybe I’ll get around to writing…

One Direction: Made in the AM Review

ETA: This was originally posted on another blog almost a year ago. When I gave this blog a makeover a few months ago I completely forgot about the other blog and thought I’d lost this entire post. Turns out I hadn’t, so here it is. A bit outdated, but still pretty representative of how I…

Book Review Roundup

Over the past few months I’ve found myself picking up a lot more books to read. I’m now at a point where I both don’t feel like writing separate posts for them all, and also wouldn’t be able to remember enough about some of them to even fill one. For example, I had to google…

Book Bite: The Raven King

Title: The Raven King Author: Maggie Stiefvater Year published: 2016 Rating: Would re-read. Why I read it: It’s the fourth and final instalment in a series I really like. Blurb: For years, Gansey has been on a quest to find a lost king. One by one, he’s drawn others into this quest: Ronan, who steals from dreams; Adam, whose life is…
