HEADLINES: Friday 9th May

I’m bringing Headlines back [yeah!], them other boys don’t know how to act.  I don’t know the rest of the words to “Sexyback”.  Anyway… the way that this works is that every second Friday I post a whole bunch of links and things that you may or not find interesting.  Some of them you may have already seen [thanks to people like Nova], but some of them may have passed you by.  I shall attempt to sort them into vague categories, so that you can skip the things that don’t interest you whatsoever.  Take it to the chorus:

POP CULTURE
The Disciples: James Mollison’s Portraits of Music Subcultures – James Mollison travelled around the US and UK, photographing fans outside of music venues.  He’s compiled them into a book, and it looks amazing.
In Defence of Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill [NME Blogs] – I’ll always have a soft spot for this album, as it was the soundtrack to my primary school years, and I bloody loved it.
The Wikipedia summary of a film called I Could Never Be Your Woman – This film stars Paul Rudd and Michelle Pfeiffer, and features guest appearances from David Mitchell, Sarah Alexander, Ed Byrne and Olivia Colman.  It sounds absolutely awful, but I’m tempted to try and find it somewhere.
Arthur Darvill sings “The Ballad of Arthur Darvill” to the tune of “Let It Go” [from Frozen] – just watch it.
“Crocodile Chop” – a mash-up of “Chop Suey” and “Crocodile Rock”.  Yes.

TRAVEL

Non Creepy Networking: Party Etiquette – part one in a series by Jessica Hische, to help get you through those horribly awkward professional networking situations.
