For years I've been planning a music career comeback. For years it's not happened. I'm probably not about to change that either but if you think I'm going to pass up the opportunity to shout about or distribute what I've already done to a wider audience, you think like a fool. That's exactly what I'm … Continue reading Music for the Masses
This article is in response to Joshua Fruhlinger's post on Engadget "This is the Modem World: Why Are We Still Texting?" Joshua's article explains how silly it is that we're still using outdated, expensive SMS messages in a world where we're all carrying devices capable of so much more. In my response, I shall state … Continue reading Why we are still texting?
How good can a film about insurance be? These days, a movie plot based around knocking someone off to get your hands on the insurance money is a concept done to death. Back in 1944 that wasn't quite the case but even then, it wasn't exactly a new concept. Naturally, I'm wondering if such a … Continue reading Movie Review – Double Indemnity
I have decided to set myself a mission to review every single movie in the Guardian's "Greatest Movies of All Time" list. I've started with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. More... Many more will follow. I hope. Why am I doing this? Seeing as you asked, I'm doing it for my own personal gratification. … Continue reading A journalistic mission of movie reviews

Seeing Jim Carrey playing the lead I was the back foot so I wiped my mind of all things Ace Ventura or Mask Related. I hadn't read the … Continue reading Movie Review – Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
The social network for nerds, App.net now has a free option for users who don't want to splash the cash. The news seems to have had very little impact on the world outside the network. Before the change, users could only use App.net if they paid $36 per year or $5 per month. The theory … Continue reading App.net Goes Free – Hardly Anyone Notices
Perhaps the title of this rant is a little unfair. Google+, in itself, is pretty good. It's me that is the problem. In fact, it's my dual identity. I use Gmail as my main mail provider. Can't fault that, it's been great for years. Naturally this same account is what's at the core of my … Continue reading Google+ is a bloody nightmare
I don't make resolutions but if I did, I would no doubt say something along the lines of "I will write a blog post every week". Let's face it, that's not gonna happen. I will try to write at least one a year though and I'm taking care of 2013's blog post with the retrospective … Continue reading Looking back at 2012
Today is the last day of Movember and normally I'd be thinking about shaving this thing off but this time I'm going to break convention... Firstly, thank you to those who have donated already. Movember is for a good cause. All funds raised go towards cancer charities. Serious business. It's still not too late to … Continue reading I’m over #Movember but should I keep the mustache?
For those that don't know, StudioSense was an online community that I founded many moons ago as a place for musicians and producers to collaborate and showcase their music. It also featured a news service to keep people up to date on music tech and changes within the industry. Due to a series of events … Continue reading Do I bring back StudioSense?
