PoopShoot.com – Shin Godzilla

In the Kevin Smith film, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob talk about “… the internet movie site, Poop Shoot dot com”. It is where everyone can post an opinion about a film, regardless if they are qualified or not. That website is a bit like this post. I hope to write a short think-piece about a film I just saw; I saw Shin Godzilla. I will stipulate I am no movie buff – I would…

Sound Of Wonder Is Ace

My mate Scooby hosts the Sound Of Wonder. The Sound Of Wonder is a podcast that gets broadcast on community radio in Harrogate and the USA. If you want to find out more then head to www.soundofwonder.co.uk Stewart admits he butchers the links and he has not a hope of getting them correct – we are past Episode 250, now. But they are amazing. They have a very small and a very small listenership. I…

The Luxury Of Discernment

The typical ten-year-old violinist can’t tell the difference between a cheap instrument and a Guarneri. Just as a harried road man simply wolfs down a hamburger, not really worried or aware of its provenance or flavour. And a bureaucrat buys whatever is cheapest and meets spec, without regard for how well it is designed or the supply chain that created it. Enthusiasts will work their whole lives to be able to tell the difference in how…

My New Media Set Up

I needed a music set up that would work with SONOS and my iPhone – something that would help me store my massive collection(s) of music. I thought about Apple Music – But, I have several Libraries for that; a Dub Library for Guerrilla Dub System, an arty Library for regular poncing and other, different libraries for friends radio shows. I needed something to unite them so I can dip my toe in to the…

A Review: #OutThereTogether

Hi, I am Andy & I’d like to talk about Open Country and their show #OutThereTogether. Why? Because it is genius, that is why – but, first I have to state a case for it. I admit I am biased when it comes to ‘this sort of thing’ because I do ‘this sort of thing’ as a hobby. Yes, I stand in fields and woodlands to record the Dawn Chorus. The show in question broadcasts on…

Review: Sveinbjorn Beinteinsson’s “Edda”

As you will read in the Category Notes for the Post Category that this post is filed in, (Review (Of Sorts), that I am not qualified to give a decent opinion. But, the internet has given everyone a voice, unwanted or not. But, to rehash, the category post for Review (Of Sorts) it says… Giving my un-wanted opinion in things I am unqualified to talk about. So, here is my unwanted opinion about Sveinbjorn Beinteinsson’s…

Cheeky Work Blog Post

I wrote this for my work Blog – you can read that at www.andrewbackhouse.design – As a content marketing strategist, I am often asked about Blog writing, especially when it comes to an emphasis on SEO. I may have previously mentioned in my posts about Content Marketing Strategy, SEO (or, Search Engine Optimisation) plays a key role in your web-content being found on Search Engines. The below pointers are aiming to help people in the service…

Christmastide 2020

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 of their hound Ernie – imposed on a Spanish nobleman. I dig it if they don’t – but, I think…

Bai reMarkable 2 – Oh, Hai iPad!

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 then there is no need for it — especially when there are now iPad Pro’s. I originally bought the reMarkable…

reMarkable 2 Notes

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 ridiculous amount for my music career / web design work – it had to be invested back in to the…

Military Grade Tech, Over Here!

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. With a mesh, the lack of dependency on one node allows for every node to participate in the relay of…
