For our Saturday Sounds this morning, we feature Indie /pop-rock /alternative singer-songwriter, GMatthews, and her new single, Chasing Happy, from her debut LP of the same name.
The street-smart Southern California native brings together rock and pop in this track, with G’s voice dominating throughout, over pared-back instrumentals, with determination to get what she wants “You’re mine, I’m chasing happy!” and sound-wise, very reminiscent of 4 Non-Blondes. Enjoy!

A complaint by Grindr worker, Jeremy Foreshew, about a Delta Airline in-flight movie which contains gay slurs, has led to the film of Chris Rock in stand-up (Kill The Messenger) being removed from their entertainment listings.
The 2008 film sees Rock speaking about when he seems to think it’s okay to call someone a ‘F****t, and is against Delta’s own policies of what is acceptable to be shown during flights, which includes bans on discrimination, racial and LGBT slurs, explicit content, and extreme violence.

Luton Crown Court
A UK judge at Luton Crown Court has praised the bravery of 3 gay men (only referred to in court as A,B and C) who came forward to expose a 22 year-old blackmailer, who used Grindr to extort money from his victims.
Liam Hull, unemployed, from Luton, who pleaded guilty to three counts of blackmail, had been using the gay dating site to target gay men who were not out, some with wives and children, and in one case, the gay man had to confess to his wife after 20 years of marriage.
Judge Richard Foster sentenced Hull to two and a half years, and quoted Lord Lane that blackmail was one of the most ugly and vicious of criminal offences, and it involved “the attempted murder of the soul”. Continue Reading »
Stephen Donnan reviews the play ‘Thinking About Thoughts’ a new play written by Anna Leckey which recently played at The Black Box Theatre, Belfast.
“Why am I here? Why are any of us here?”
Those words sum up the essence of the masterpiece performed by Anna Leckey, Edward Richards, and Mathieu Lovelace.
These three dominated the space of the performance, they lived the words that whooshed through our minds in the voices of David Paulin, Boyd Rodgers and Anna Leckey – three individual spirits that come to a silent retreat for ten days to escape…the world? Themselves? Or to become something new?
