Currently reading another page-turner, "Five Survive" by Holly Jackson.

QuoteEighteen year old Red and her friends are on a road trip in an RV, heading to the beach for Spring Break. It's a long drive but spirits are high. Until the RV breaks down in the middle of nowhere. There's no mobile phone reception and nobody around to help. And as the wheels are shot out, one by one, the friends realise that this is no accident. There's a sniper out there in the dark watching them and he knows exactly who they are. One of the group has a secret that the sniper is willing to kill for.

QuoteFollowing last year's take on Gerard McMahon's Lost Boys hit Cry Little Sister, Zetra have released a cover of The Cure's Burn.

The corpse-painted synth-rock duo's take on the track, written for the 1994 Brandon Lee ultra-goth movie The Crow, comes head of their forthcoming dates with Creeper and NAUT next month.

The band, who recently announced their signing to powerhouse metal label Nuclear Blast, have a busy couple of months ahead, hitting the road with both Creeper and Ville Valo.

QuoteOver twenty years ago, the former secretary general of Nato, George Robertson, visited Moscow and held talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Putin was exasperated at the Celebrations for D-Day 2014. Merkel had to appease him. Everyone else looked away ... took no note from it.

I'm looking forward to "Dune part 2", this review is very promising:

QuoteWhen was the last time a $190m blockbuster was this stately, this sinister – and this content to not explain a single aspect of itself, but instead simply allow the viewer to grab what they can and intuit the rest?

The answer may well be 2021, when Villeneuve's first Dune film was released – and proved popular enough to secure this sequel, yet still felt a little under-appreciated. Part Two picks up exactly where its predecessor left off, immediately dunking the audience back in by the ankles.

QuoteClergy in Russia who speak out against the invasion of Ukraine risk losing their freedom. The Russian Orthodox Church officially supports what the Kremlin describes as a "special military operation."
