How you can #HelpAmber with her education l Kettlemag

I’ve caught up with book blogger and YouTuber Amber Kirk-Ford, also known as book blogger The Mile Long Bookshelf, to chat to her about #HelpAmber, a campaign to help raise the funding for her to complete her A-levels next year. Amber has had to resort to crowdfunding her further education as the government won't fund it because she attends an online school due to her mental illnesses.

Album review: The Day's War by Lonely the Brave | Kettlemag

Album review: The Day's War by Lonely the Brave | Kettlemag

Lonely the Brave are back with the Victory Edition of their album The Day's War. In their own words, the album (particularly the Redux songs):

'Allows us to explore this and continue to grow; to take those songs we put down to tape a few years back now and re-approach them from where we're at now was something I think we all enjoyed'.

Growth is something that does occur when listening to this album. The songs don't compliment themselves so much as when you progress through the album, you can sense this growth in emotion, build and style compared to the band's earlier work, so we are literally hearing the growth and progression of the artists themselves. But as listeners we also grow when listening to this album. Every song takes us on a journey, and by the end of the album all of us will feel different. We're made anew by the musical gems that are on this album.

My favourite American Poets l Kettlemag

My favourite American Poets l Kettlemag

I’m currently doing English Literature at A-level, and hope to carry it on to degree level - so you would assume that I like poetry. You’d be right in that assumption too, because I do really love how one poem has the ability change perceptions and move people, and poetry is actually my favourite medium to write. But I do English Literature, not American Literature, so do I know any American poets?

Retro Review: Fight Club I Kettle Mag

Fight Club is a cult classic directed by David Fincher. While its violence, themes and messages meant that it didn't do particularly well initially in the box office, it soon became a hit after it premiered on DVD, and is now considered one of the best modern films by many cinema-goers and film publications.
