Cold Shower


Reasons why you should take cold showers. Unfortunately, my electric boiler broke down during the coldest part of the year, leaving me without hot water for two days. It is probably the last thing you want to do, jump into an ice-cold shower. They say a cold water shower is an anti-depressant, it improves blood circulation, it’s good for your skin and hair, it builds mental strength, and it can improve athletic performance. James Bond took cold showers. I personally think hot showers are one of the best things in the whole wide world, especially during the coldest part of the year. So sorry, James. Can you hand me a towel, Mr. Bowie, please?

As an aside, I haven’t seen ‘Birdman’ from Alejandro González Iñárritu and I admit it looks promising. But my favourite movie of the year ‘Boyhood’ from Richard Linklater, a potential front runner, left with just one award, for best supporting actress for Patricia Arquette? Come on guys…



Boyhood, a moving 12 year epic. This groundbreaking movie is a time-lapse study of Mason, growing up from around the age of five to 18, from primary school to his first day in college. This emotional epic is a 12-years-in-the-making masterpiece from Richard Linklater. It’s funny, tender and full of warmth and humanity. Boyhood runs 165 minutes but Mr. Bowie didn’t want to miss a minute.
