Initial Reactions to OS X Mountain Lion

Well I can't say I'm not surprised. Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine that we'd be hearing about an OS X update in February, nor that it would come with the oh so obvious title of Mountain Lion. But here we are, just two days after Valentines Day. A brand new version of OS…

iPhone App Store Weekend Deals

I'm a glutton for a good deal. That's why I always welcome holiday weekends as there is often a sale going on in the iPhone App Store. This weekend is no exception. Actually, this weekend kind of is an exception because the deals are so damn good. TUAW has the full list of the…

My Experience with PHP Frameworks - Yii, CodeIgniter, and Symfony

A week ago I started work on a personal web project using PHP as my programming language of choice. This wasn’t a hard decision as I use PHP daily for work and have a great deal of strength in the language. As I set forward to create my web app I knew I wanted to use a prebuilt…

Quick Picture Posting

The first picture app I started using was Picplz on my Android phone. There wasn't any other options for me to go to. At the time the app that had all the media in a tizzy was Instagram - and they were iPhone only. But I wanted to post my pictures - easily and quickly too! And…

The Roots - How I Got Over

As I wrote yesterday The Roots have released their new album today, How I Got Over . I’m not an old fan of The Roots: the first album I heard of theirs was The Tipping Point , which I liked but didn’t get much replay from me. Over the years I’ve heard more of their music and…

Official Week of Music – OWoM

This week I am declaring as my Official Week of Music. I haven’t posted an album review or highlighted any good artists in a while and I think it’s time to take some time and do just that. I’ve actually accumulated quite a nice collection of artists and musicians that I am very…

23andMe Genetic Testing

I love new and cool technologies.  This ranges from the supreme laziness afforded by an iRobot Dirt Dog to the awesome laziness afforded by a Segway .  Yet these two gadgets pall in comparison to my somewhat fanatical interest in a (relatively) new company called 23andMe : I…

LCD Soundsystem – This is Happening

There are few things I love more than summer albums. You know the albums I'm talking about.  The ones that you crank to max volume in your car.  The ones that make you roll down all your windows and stick your hand out.  The ones that make you drive faster. Also the ones that…

B.o.B. – B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray

I love when an album is released that I can’t help but listen to over, and over, and over again. The last album that had that effect on me was the debut album from Two Doors Cinema Club, whose review I posted in February. These type of records are filled with songs that flow…

We Live in Public

This is the first movie review I’ve written for my site. The format and structure of these reviews are bound to change like me - and hopefully for the better. This past week I watched the documentary We Live in Public . Described (as of this writing) on Wikipedia as, “a 200…

Phantogram - Eyelid Moves

Phantogram is an up-and-coming/somewhat arrived band. That's really the best way I'm currently able to describe them. They haven't quite hit it big with a large audience but they are hardly underground anymore. Phantogram is comprised of Sarah D. Barthel and Joshua M. Carter…

Broken Bells – Broken Bells (and why ticketmaster angers me)

Ever heard of The Shins? They were a nice indie success with songs such as Phantom Limb and New Slang (which was featured in the movie Garden State). Ever heard of DJ Danger Mouse? He broke onto the music scene when he released his amazing mix-tape The Grey Album - a mash…

Two Door Cinema Club - Tourist History

I love finding artists before mainstream media does. It’s an acquired skill, one that is mostly luck and perseverance. There isn’t a science to it, but there are ways in which you can increase your odds. In this particular case I have the Hype Machine to thank for this new…

Massive Attack – Heligoland

I’ve been a fan of Massive Attack’s since I first heard their song Teardrop. An evil creeping song, it became my anthem for some time - a perfect backdrop for my teenage angst. In 2003 Massive Attack released their LP 100th Window. I got a copy and began listening - hoping and…
