In The Ticket today, assorted critics, writers, actors and film-makers pick their favourite movie scenes, pop prince Mika gives it socks about his second album, the directors of Three Miles North of Molkom talk about why they chose to document a Swedish New Age festival and Brian Boyd on why Paul McCartney still jumps through media hoops.

There’s New Music profiles of Mount Kimbie, The Drums, Lisa O’Neill, Yes Cadets and Cities, while there are Music News stories on the Cork “Jazz” Festival, the first Irish Love Music Hate Racism gig and a tribute to Michael Jackson as part of Cork’s Culture Night events.

Album of the Week comes from The Very Best and there are also reviews of releases from Volcano Choir, Dizzee Rascal, Saving J, Reemo, Amanda Blank, Mika, Madonna, Clive Barnes, Chuck Prophet and others.

Before you head to the cinema, you can read reviews of such new releases as Away We Go, Gamer, Three Miles North of Molkom, The Firm and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. Plus film news, DVD reviews and the weekly movie quiz set by professional sadist, drone-rock fan and future blogger Donald Clarke.

The Ticket: lights, cameras, action!

The OTR noticeboard is now open for your plugs and recommendations so please plug and recommend away to your heart’s content, but remember to declare an interest where one should be declared. Please note that plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense. Please also note that events with a commerical sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Be careful out there.
