Having seen The Grand Budapest Hotel this evening, I can accurately order my preference of Wes Anderson films as follows:
1. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

4. The Grand Budapest Hotel
5. The Fantastic Mr Fox
6. The Darjeeling Limited
7. Moonrise Kingdom
8. Bottle Rocket

I’m worried I might be House of Cards-ing my self into a better position at work without even thinking about it. And I haven’t done a single piece to camera.

This week I shall be meeting/running shows for both John Cooper Clarke and We Are Scientists. ACE.
