Thanks Biffy, The Captain is it!

Biffy Clyro have a new single out, The Captain. It's the follow up to That Golden Rule and features on their upcoming album Only Revolutions. I never really got fully on board with That Golden Rule, but The Captain, in my opinion, better represents the sound that Biffy hinted at in That Golden Rule. It's like they've made the perfect rock/pop fusion track. And I love it!

Is your iTunes top 10 embarrassing?

Saturday, 26 September 2009 5:15 pm
tags: itunes music top10

I've noticed a trend amongst several people's iTunes libraries. Now this is just a fleeting thought, I haven't done any extensive research. But it seems the top 10 songs most played in peoples music libraries tends to be quite embarrassing. Your actual favourite songs probably tend to vary over time and, for me at least, the top 10 highest played rarely seems to reflect this.

Cousins: explained

tags: random

It's always puzzled me what constitutes a second cousin (and in turn, a third, forth, etc.). I've also heard the term "once/twice/three times removed" and never understood what it meant. If you're in the same boat, wonder no more! Following a discussion tonight I think I've now got it, and I will do my best to explain it.

Coding Error or Rise in Popularity?

I was surprised to see in my website stats that the last 2 days has seen large increases in hits. I have been updating a few things here and there, including the new Comments page so I can't be sure if something isn't quite right in the back-end coding of the site, or whether the site has just seen an increase in visitors over the last few days.

Why you want a DSLR

The idea for this article has been in my head for a while and I'm finally now putting pen to paper (in a virtual kind of way). So the age old question, why get a DSLR over a compact camera. I'm gonna make this a pretty straight forward argument. 5 points for, 5 points against. Here goes.

Just a quick post as I haven't done so since the start of the week. I went to Alton Towers today. Took the old SLR along for the ride. I didn't get many snaps, but this is one of the ones I liked.

Undisclosed Desires - the Muse Magic

Monday, 14 September 2009 7:24 pm
tags: muse music review

I have to admit, I wasn’t looking forward to the new Muse album much after hearing the first single off it. Uprising didn’t really do anything for me. It was the Muse we’d come to expect, but it just had no kick to it or anything to make it stand out. Then I heard another song off the album: Undisclosed Desires.

♥ Brighton

I’ve lived in Brighton for the past 3 years whilst studying at the University of Sussex. I’d never been to Brighton before so it was a bit of an adventure when I first moved down to the south coast back in 2006. Three years on and I’ve been convinced of Brighton’s charms.

MY KZ, UR BF

I want to post about a band that interested me from the moment I heard this particular song (pronounced my keys, your boyfriend - in case you were wondering). It's one of those songs that I just can't decide if I like or not. Regardless, the band Everything Everything has definitely caught my interest.
