Today, new technology in living rooms and editing studios are helping to drive the pace of art and entertainment, just like they are driving everything else in our work life and our leisure life. When compared to the classics, movies today have gained up their pace and they have entered into a world of ‘instants’. Instantaneity rules on the screen and on the networks of our daily lives; instant coffee, instant intimacy, instant gratification. The changing pace of media from films to televisions, from broadcast news to music videos, reflect and conditions a changing pace in our psyches.

Biopic movies of famous people continue to inspire us from time to time, to become a better human being, whereas studies have shown that watching thriller ad action movies makes the brain sharper. It’s hard to argue that movies have remained a dominant form of art since the past 100 years. As quoted by Andy Warhol: “It’s the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do, when to do it, how to feel about it and how to look when you feel about it.” In the years leading up to world war II, both Nazi and Soviet propaganda experts recognized the importance of film in imparting ideologies to the masses, one individual at a time. And today too, all around the world, people look up to the characters in the movies, and are greatly influenced by them, whether they are comic figures, action figures or political figures.

But, gone are the days when you had to stand in queue and buy the tickets for your favourite movie, or even go to the theatre for that matter. Apps like Movie Box, have made the movie watching experience far better, by uploading all the latest movies on their website, where you can stream and watch the movie for free. Movie Box is an application for android operating system, specifically tuned for mobile devices, and it provides streaming capabilities for tv shows along with the movies. Movie Box cannot be found on Google play store, so you need to download it to your device by directly visiting the website, or from some other sources.

This app is still a budding Russian website where more and more latest movies and tv shows are added on a regular basis. The movie experience at Movie Box is better as most of the content is in HD and you can automatically add subtitles if you want.

The Real King Of Limbs

  • Tom has found the tree and he took a couple of photos.  On his blog he promised to show the path to the tree to everybody who is interested. He also posted a couple of tidbits:
  • Oak trees only become this old because of the cutting technique called pollarding, which is where the tree is cut at a certain height for wood and allowed to re-grow, while the stump gets fatter and fatter.
  • The name ‘King of Limbs’ can’t be as old as the tree, because it was pollarded until the late 1800s, according to a forest warden I spoke to yesterday. And thus, without the large limbs of branches, no-one will have named it this way until it actually had limbs.
  • The forest warden I spoke to, and some locals, are very concerned about Radiohead fans damaging the forest while looking for the tree, possibly lighting camp fires or stealing bits of wood from the tree itself. Probably worth reminding readers that the forest is private – this is like walking through someone’s garden, albeit a large one.
  • The tree is a traditional village boundary, though I can’t say which boundary without giving away the location. Large tree stumps were used as boundaries because they can’t be picked up and moved on like a signpost could.
  • Pete Doherty lived nearby on the edge of Savernake for a few years. He’s supposedly moved away but last time the gates were open, I noticed his cars were still there.
  • The roof of the stables at Tottenham House, where some of In Rainbows was recorded (and possibly some of King of Limbs?) has recently had all the lead stolen, presumably causing torrential leaks.
