In The Ticket, your best weekly guide to music and movies on the planet, Donald Clark goes moonwalking with Duncan “Zowie Bowie” Jones, director of the rather awesome Moon, we go Dutch with comedian Hans Teeuwen, one of the stars of the forthcoming Carlsberg Comedy Carnival in Dublin, Brian Boyd gives this year’s Mercury Music Prize (the British version of the Choice Music Prize) to Doves and there are music interviews with Alela Diane and VV Brown.

The New Music pin-ups are Janelle Monae, Shit Robot, Chief, Size2Shoes, Hawthorne Headhunters and Ran (the last four are not included in the online edition for some reason), and there’s Music News about Arthur’s Day, even more Michael Jackson merchandise and Julian Casablancas’ solo Stroke.

The Album of the Week gong goes to Steve Kuhn Trio with Joe Lovano and there are also reviews of recent releases and reissues from Wallis Bird, Major Lazer, Lucky Elephant, Mos Def, VV Brown, The Dead Weather, Clark, Jeff Buckley and many more. Plus Eoin Butler goes a-wry with the singles.

New flicks for your viewing pleasure include Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Moon, Wide Open Spaces and Frozen River. Plus DVD reviews, film news and the weekly quiz
