Christmas started a couple of days ago for me – I recorded Roots Conversation and drank a bit, the gift giving started then. Scooby & K-Lo gave me a clear vinyl 2018 repress of Creation Rebel, Adrian Sherwood’s tour de force. It is right good. I gave them this photo… It is a photo… Continue reading Christmastide 2020
I have been thinking — I may set myself a challenge. Challenges are a good thing, they can better the individual. Let him take flight and overcome his obstacles. Why do I need a challenge? What is it I hope to do and what is it I hope to prove to myself? I hope to… Continue reading Can I Do It?
Well, I quickly realised the reMarkable 2 was not for me. My writing needed a lot of correcting — it was the zen in my storm but I quite enjoy the storm – I like fiddling. I love gadgets. Having a tool per job is dandy — but if that tool has severely limited functionality… Continue reading Bai reMarkable 2 – Oh, Hai iPad!
It’s arrived! I am currently writing this Blog post on my reMarkable Tablet. It is unnecessary but ace. I liken it to buying my Dad a Christmas present: he has all that he needs and anything else will just be re-inventing the wheel….. still, it is a lot of fun! See, I was paid a… Continue reading reMarkable 2 Notes
Most people have heard of the video hosting service, Vimeo. It is a bit more like YouTube but more pretentious. A lot of videographers, artists, cinematographers and myself are on there. It is not that social, more a place to pop your portfolio and keep it there. Anyway, I made a still image movie with… Continue reading An Experiment On Vimeo
Lock down has been in place for a few weeks now, here in England. It should have come sooner – there by removing temptation to go out for a beer. And, quite what the schools are doing open is a mystery. I really feel for the Uni students – they should have been stopped from… Continue reading Lock Down 2.0 ~ This Time Its Personal
It is currently early Wednesday morning, eleventh of November 2020 – I have just recorded a new edition of The Parish News, as Kathryn slept nearby. Here is the show for you to listen to: When I make a new edition of The Parish News I try and make a new cover for it, so… Continue reading Recording The Parish News
Well, I am writing this Blog post as a way of keeping things in check – it is currently nearly half four in the afternoon and it might be a bit early for a weekend recap – but, I will go for it anyway. This weekend has been overshadowed by Johnson’s announcement about England entering… Continue reading A Great Weekend, Overshadowed
I have been in contact with my hero, Lee Perry. Lee “Scratch” Perry is a massive influence on me and the music I make, when I am making Dub Reggae. Lee Perry is attributed with being the first person to use a sample in a pop record – before that is was the avant-garde who… Continue reading Working With Lee Perry
A mesh network (or simply Meshnet) is a local network topology in which the infrastructure nodes (i.e. bridges, switches, and other infrastructure devices) connect directly, dynamically and non-hierarchically to as many other nodes as possible and cooperate with one another to efficiently route data from/to clients. And, my house now has a Mesh WiFi Network.… Continue reading Military Grade Tech, Over Here!
It is the start of October and I have not been blogging as much as I should. Why is it that I have not been blogging much through 2020? Well, I have not been doing that much. This is due to Covid 19 and that fact I have spent most of this year indoors, unsocial.… Continue reading Thought I Would Check In
Please, go and check on your conspiracy loving friend – I guarantee that they are not okay right now. For the sake of History, we are currently trapped in the middle of a Pandemic. Covid-19 is spreading like wildfire and we are approaching flu season in the middle of the second wave. Brexit will hit… Continue reading Check On Your Conspiracy Loving Friend
I have just uploaded my first YouTube video that is semi-professional. Semi-professional, not in the quality but in that it was not a drunken whim. It took planning and preparation and I stand by it. I am proud of it. There were a few fluffed lines but… It is for Harrogate Community Radio – a… Continue reading I Made My First Instructional Video
