Stalker Soundtrack

Recently at our Medusa book club, we discussed the new TV series Stalker and it’s soundtrack which primarily consists of re-imagined 80’s hits performed in the creepiest way possible.

I thought that it might be fun to gather them all in the one place. Which it was, for I am all the contentment at a good bit of compiling lists.

Then I listened to it… and yup, CREEPY is the word!

 

*I’d have included a Spotify playlist but unfortunately most of the songs aren’t included on it.

 

Kathryn Tickell and the Side

Just out from a wonderful gig at the Howard Assembly Rooms in Leeds city centre where the main event was the fantastic Kathryn Tickell and the Side.

They didn’t play this one – though the mentioned it and I decided to look it up as it has vocals and I was very curious. Their set was incredible and I’ll be blogging about it later (on one blog or another).

Minion Movie

So squee about this.
I mean, bouncing up and down in glee sort of Squee.

With the Owen Elgie news earlier this week and this trailer today…I might just explode with excitement!

Chat with Magda Apanowicz

So, maintaining my tradition (of a year ago *ahem*), I am officially calling in 2015 with a Canadian.

Last year it was the delightful Leah Cairns (who I will absolutely be bringing back for a chat!)…this year, Culturally Fixated  is joined by the equally fabulous and hilarious

Magda Apanowicz

Magda - Kyle xy

Andy Jenson – Kyle XY

Where to start!! There’s something about Magda that made it just *IMPOSSIBLE* for me to stay in interview mode – she’s that sort of person that I immediately started chatting to as though we were life long friends!

We discuss Christmas and her two Christmas TVM for Scifi (I refuse to call them siffy) – Snowmageddon and the 12 Disasters of Christmas.

Then we took a meander down ‘genera’ lane and chat about the appeal of Sci Fi and the huge emotions and stories that can be told. Kyle XY, Caprica, Caontinuum, Battlestar Galactica – it’s so wonderful to find an actor that loves ‘my’ shows as much as I do.

Magda - Caprica

Lacy Rand – Caprica

 

Oh, and did I mention she’s a Buffy fan. There’s a point where you can almost hear us swoon across two different continents over Spike…that is to say James Masters.

We cast a quick eye over two of her recent (released if not shot recently) films – A Reason and The Green Inferno and Magda compares the mediums of TV and film to  come round to a favourite medium for telling stories.

We briefly touch upon some of her hobbies outside of acting – including travelling and both her Canadian and Polish roots. Finally we chat about the upcoming year!

Kicking ass as Emily – Continuum

 

***LANGUAGE***

We swear. No two ways about it. I mean, we’ve not vulgar, heaven forfend…just passionate people with expressive vocabularies…
***SPOILERS***
We *RUIN* practically every show that we mention – especially Caprica, Continuum (up to season 3) and discuss in detail the atrocious ending of Kyle XY. Aspects of Battlestar Galactica.
