The Picks Of Destiny Return! (New Year Update)

img_0203

New year, new me… lol nah, Ive been quite pleased with my lack of procrastination recently so as long as it holds up I’m good with keeping things just as they are! So, getting right into it theres a lot of exciting things finally ready to happen, and almost like a cryptic sign, I just found my picks of destiny at long last. For those that haven’t followed me when I was going under my previous moniker Random Impulse, I had this necklace with a bunch of multi-coloured picks, just so I always had them at hand, but due to the colours they picked up a bit of attention which in turn made them a sort of good luck charm for me. Now I was 99% sure I lost it forever on tour but behold! Here they return Just in time!

Ive spent all of last year just stacking and stacking content, all without releasing any which has been really frustrating as you can only built with what you release, but now.. NOW I’ve finally come to the end of the road, and although some things still have a bit of a mystery shroud on em, I can at least start announcing stuff. so without further ado.

Youtube Series

Although I have a Vevo account, Ive always wanted to take the plunge and built up my own account on youtube, so every Sunday I’ll be releasing a lil something I whipped up (at around 12pm GMT.)   Subscribe to my channel HERE to get it as soon as it lands.

Album

On the 6th of January I begin Recording my album! Theres a LOT of exciting stuff around this, a lot that i’m unfortunately not allowed to talk about just yet involving this, but if you follow my Facebook and Instagram, I’m SURE it’ll all be revealed a lot sooner than I’m told I’m “officially” allowed to speak about it haha. Its big, REALLY big so don’t say I didn’t warn you!

 

New Releases From March!

If my EP and youtube vids arn’t enough for you, you wont have to wait till my album is out for new stuff, new music/videos will be hitting your screens from march. Im not sure if I should call it a mixtape or playlist , but they’ll be a bundled release of some form following all this too. To hell with titles, its a body of work lol.

Touring/Live Shows!

This is probably the thing I’m most excited about. Again, theres a really big announcement I’m not allowed to make about this until April, but what I CAN tell you is that i have been booked for FOUR summer festivals this year. They’ll most definitely be more as the year progresses but this is one hell of a start!

Phew! feels SO good to able to get that off my chest! I hated working behind the scenes without being able to show any of it, never been good at keeping secrets.

 

oh and the blog is back to its regular schedule so you can expect your usual update on me, tech, music, cool shit, food and anime at least 3 times a week.

If you read right through till the very end, congratulations, you win the game.

Peace!

In Amazons New Store You Just Scan Your Phone Once Then Walk Out With Whatever You Want (video)

amazon_go_stock_1-0

Ok this shit is just plain mental, and I mean that In the Best Possible way. You scan your phone which identifies you, then just walk around, throwing in whatever you want into your bag. Walk right out the door without interacting with anyone or anything and you get billed as if you ordered something online. In the video they very loosely explain how it all works and I still dont get it, all i get is that this is a definite game changer if it goes well. check it out

 

The New Anime About Fighting With Your Butt. Yes, For Real

02efb5862c8f76d2d9239913c3c323d71475742970_fullSo as you may or may not know I’m am NECK DEEP into japanese culture, manga, anime and video games in particular, and I generally pick up 9-10 new anime series per season (watched with subtitles of course.) there are a LOT of weird anime that come out, and an equal number of anime that showcase the more ‘ecchi’ side of things (the random boob shot etc) but this, THIS takes the biscuit.

esapic

Ladies and gentlemen I present to you Keijo: the battle of the asses!! now I personally am NOT following this anime at all… i mean, what self respecting man would watch an anime focusing on a new sport in which two women battle it out on a floating disc in the water, aiming to knock the opponent off using only her butt or bust??

fdf83a9e32b92077efec1404e876084ff940bb45

Because I haven’t been following it, i don’t know that the series is set in an alternate reality where a new, women-only, gambling sport known as “keijo”, quickly becomes a fad in Japan since its introduction in the dawn of the 21st century. Keijo matches are held atop floating platforms, referred to as a “Land”, in large water-filled stadiums where swimsuit-clad players fight to incapacitate their opponents or push them out to the water, but they can only hit each other using their breasts or buttocks.

Nozomi Kaminashi is a gifted gymnast who decides to give up her dream of competing in the Olympics and become a keijo player instead, aiming for the high earnings offered there, in order to get herself and her younger siblings out of poverty. As she enters the world of Keijo, Nozomi soon makes new friends and rivals, while learning that the way to fame and fortune in this new, uncommon sport will have more challenges than she ever imagined.

So no, that definitely is NOT the trailer below, and I don’t know when it airs (every Thursday.)

Drake – Fake Love (Jovel Refix)

img_9838Ive started doing weekly refixes again just to shake the frustration of recording without being allowed to put anything out and this week I did Drakes ‘Fake love.’ I Usuall remake everything from scratch but as a friend of mine where the exact samples were from, the beat sounds near identical. the only thing I didnt nail were the sub drums but whatever. I reeeally regret not adding guitars too, but I was a bit short on time with it, I rewrote all the lyrics as always though, and I even had my first try at adobe after effects ro make the moving vid, so thats something lol.

Anyway, here it is and I hope you enjoy it. till next week!

Apples Selling a Book For $300 lol

designed-by-apple-in-california-1-400x536So its come to this. The makers of the mac book have now made an…er..mac book, but literally this time.

On Tuesday, Apple released something unique: not a phone or a laptop or wireless earbuds, but a coffee table book. Designed by Apple in California features exquisite photographs of iconic Apple products, beginning with the iMac in 1998 and culminating with the Apple Pencil. In true Apple fashion the book comes in two sizes: a 10.20 x 12.75-inch copy for $199 and a 13 x 16.25-inch copy for $299.

jbareham_161117_1286_0086-0

Yup, you heard right $300, flipping, dollars for a book of photos. Now this is a bit unfair as I’m all for artistic photography books being sold for prices like this, but seeing as its coming from a massive tech corporation, I cant help but see this as no more than a glorified catalogue.

jbareham_161117_1286_pages_01-0

Having said all that though, theres no denying the quality of this book:

“Like all Apple products, the attention to detail is meticulous: the tightly bound pages are edged in silver; the paper is Apple-specific Heaven 42 Scheufelen from Germany — as is the Bamberger Kaliko linen with bespoke dye. The printing is simply astonishing: custom low ghost Epple inks and 8 CMYK color separations (4 is the norm) with 280 line screen printing give the photographs deep, rich blacks and colors so bright as to make a grown design lover weep. As for the photographs themselves, they are of course impeccable. All were shot by Andrew Zuckerman in a typical “Appley” minimalist style, bathing Apple’s older hardware in the modern “press shot” aesthetic.”

(-written by the verge the verge)

what do you guys think?
