The Post-Apocalyptic World of Google+

July 10, 2012

Comments Off on The Post-Apocalyptic World of Google+

Sometimes it takes fresh eyes to pin point our exact feelings towards something. So when I was clumsily trying to introduce the complexities and potential of Google+ as a Social Media platform to a new colleague, his response was a bit of a ‘eureka’ moment for me: While this is no way does Google+ any justice […]

Trust, Twitter and Louise Mensch

June 25, 2012

It’s often said that people’s problems with Social Media are actually problems with people. So when Louise Mensch launched Menshn.com last week and cited her “frustrations” with Twitter it’s curious to find out exactly what she’s got up her sleeve. The Tory MP for Corby called for Social Networks such as Twitter and Facebook to […]

Comments Off on Heineken vs Pabst

There’s a lot of things to consider here –  budget, copyright issues, brand association, advertising standards  (especially for alcohol products) But if you don’t care about any of those things, and you just want a beer – and you watch both of these ‘adverts’ – which one do you want to buy?

Either on purpose or by accident the hashtag #reasonstobeatyourgirlfriend might well do more for the issue of domestic abuse than any print or TV ad campaign. (So as not to get side tracked I’ll try […]

Watching the first person to ever use the turntable as an instrument at a packed hip-hop tent at a dance festival I was overcome by one of those moments where a montage of history and development passes through the forefront of a mind in the blink of an eye. I felt privileged to be in attendance, […]

Tyler The Creator: Goblin (Album Review)

Comments Off on Tyler The Creator: Goblin (Album Review)

Thematically, anger towards parents/school/authority/peers is nothing too original and extraordinary. However Tyler has taken a few steps further into this ‘marketing goldmine’ and produced an album that is artistically impressive outside of the under 20’s. After the introduction we really don’t have anything left to say to or about Tyler. Much like Eminem’s final battle […]

The Beastie Boys: Hot Sauce Committee Pt2 (Album Review)

May 17, 2011

Comments Off on The Beastie Boys: Hot Sauce Committee Pt2 (Album Review)

Taken From ThisIsRealMusic.com The Hot Sauce Committee Pt 2 at first listen sounds roughly how the world might feel to three aging MC’s in 2011. Chaotic, confusing and continuously contradictory. Like trying to catch robot butterflies with a 1900’s net made of grey hair. Staying true to yourself amongst the quicksand of trends and technology must […]
