I probably would have never figured it out if I haven't came across this.
Spotify playlist: 100 songs from 2011
Ah, it’s that time of the year again. The cool air, Christmas lights, the impending fluffy white stuff that’s luriking round elsewhere… and the lists. Oh, the lists! I’ve been keeping a Spotify playlist of random songs I’ve enjoyed listening this year. This list was at times confused with the starred playlist, so I ended up doing some trimming and merging anyway. All...
Who is Claudia Lewis?
The latest M83 album “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” was just released this week. It features a couple of songs titled after proper names, such as “Steve McQueen” and “Claudia Lewis”. Surely there’s no need to question who Steve McQueen is, but who is Claudia Lewis? Today, eMusic hosted a Q&A on Twitter where one person asked this very same...
Spotify: A Love/Hate Sensation. Rundown of all the...
It’s been over a month since I signed up for Spotify and 10 days since I switched from freeloader to paying Premium customer. On paper, Spotify is a very attractive proposition, offering a great solution to the common problem of on-demand music streaming. As a free user, you have to sit through banners and audio ads, quite a reasonable price if you consider the service you’re provided...
All The Movie Tweets
Enter The Void is a real mind trip. Great use of POV, some disturbing undertones, but sadly grew tiresome about 40m before the end. April 3, 11 Monsters: a barely there “creature” feature that wants to revolve around its characters but forgot to give them actual personalities. To make it worse, and an eye rolling climax, writers decided to inject it with a flat social...

Being Human is Exhausting... So i'll be an Owl

What a year for Owls!

Oh, Baby: The Mixtape
“Baby” is a very popular, non-gender specific, way of referring to your significant other. It is a wonder-word in terms of phonetic camouflage, it can be included in a myriad of music genres without losing a step. Its pop sensibility is so high, that it can even be used by closeted gay people without fear of outing themselves to anyone. “Baby”: sweet and short. While...
Things I dislike about Conservatives
I am personally a big fan of tolerance. Not everyone in the world must agree with my views, though I think they tend to be fairly reasonable ideas, I understand and respect this. But sometimes it’s difficult to even grasp someone else’s reasons to hate another human being. A lot of conservatives seem to think that speaking the loudest makes them sound more knowledgeable and that any...

Tumblr is in fact not difficult to fully customize. All you need is a bit of patience and dedication, which I seem to be lacking at the moment…. that and a PC to check for IE bugs. I hate IE so much!
