Inception: The Dream World

Jul 31, 2010

I write this blog entry for several reasons. Firstly, the last time I blogged was the 13th July - well over 2 weeks ago. To say I've become a bit lax is an understatement.

A fashion certainty

Jul 13, 2010

I don't pretend to know anything about fashion, nor care, but this summer there's something I want to put to men everywhere...

A Nation Sighs

Jun 29, 2010

I'm a little late off the mark on this one, I've been away from home, in Essex for the past 2 days. The UK England have had a chance to morn the death of another failed England world cup campaign. Was it Capello's fault? Was it the players' fault? Frankly there's been enough discussion over the past few days to form your own opinion. I've always - perhaps somewhat naively - believed the players are the most important link in the winning chain, well above the manager; and I think this is true of England's World Cup exit.

The inaugural iPhone 4

Jun 18, 2010

Last month Apple announced the new iPhone, excitingly named the iPhone 4. I’ve always been aware and mildly interested in the iPhone phenomenon but I’ve never had the desire to jump feet first onto the bandwagon. The usability of the device has always seemed so different to anything I’ve owned in the past, most likely because I’ve never laid down more than £100 on a phone. But I figured it’s a piece of technology that will, in most cases, become second-nature in a short space of time.

The Strokes Incognito

Jun 9, 2010

If you're a Strokes fan you may have noticed the strong rumour floating around the Internet yesterday that the band will be playing a secret gig in London under the guise 'Venison'. The band haven't really been around since releasing their 3rd album First Impressions of Earth in 2006 but have reportedly been back in the studio recently and are touring around the world in the upcoming months. I still regret not getting tickets for the Isle of Wight Festival this weekend, where the band will be headlining.

The Flash Forward that will never be

Jun 3, 2010

After just watching the last ever episode of Flash Forward I can't help but feel a little disappointed at its demise. Although apparently it's not a foregone conclusion that this show has received the dreaded axe; for, apparently, ABC has simply 'halted' production of the second series. I've mentioned before, I like this show; and after seeing the finale of the first series, plenty more action is promised if there is to be a second series.

To sum up...

May 28, 2010

A Busy schedule and broken Internet at home are poor excuses for not blogging. Time is of the essense, so I'm delivering the briefest, most concise post yet; just as a way to quickly sum up the past week really. Here goes.

Good music deserves good speakers

May 17, 2010

One of the first things I noticed when I first got a laptop was - plain and simply - the onboard speakers stink. However it seems a lot of people are satisfied with the tinny sounds these small computers put out. Which brings me onto the point of this post. You owe it to the musicians and artists who produce beautiful music to listen to it how it was meant to be listened to. Do your ears a favour and pick yourself up some speakers.
