Re: Big Little Lies

I was a bit disappointed. Also read the novel which I liked - but shifting the setting from Sydney's northern beaches to California seemed pretty silly (though the scenery was quite spectacular in parts). True - that change didn't make it as bad as I thought it was going to be - but it did lose a l...

Big Little Lies

I recently finished watching the HBO miniseries Big Little Lies, and it is fantastic. I read the novel it is based on a couple years ago and loved it, but the series might be even better. It's about a group of parents of first-graders, and their children, and the tangled web of relationships between...

Re: Circle of Titles VII

I feel like I learned a lot with this song LT, I've been AWOL from Songfight for a bit recently, so I'm sure I've missed some of your more recent songs, but this is far and away the best song of yours I've heard. Your delivery is confident, your rapid-fire verse lyrics are great, you've got a catch...

Fascinating spread of points there. Particularly the fact that the top two songs didn't get a 10. Congrats to BSS! May the statistical analysis resume... Ahem, there are actually three songs in the top two slots, one of which did in fact score a 10. :) Congratulations to BSS, their song this round ...
