Wet Shaving

I have tried and do like double edge shaving, but it is not a thing I can do every day before heading out to work, very time consuming. 

Like most blokes I am always on the look out for an alternative to the expensive Gillette cartridge razors. I have tried a lot, spent way to much trying all comers.

These are the three I kind of rate.

Cornerstone. Cornerstone have a new cartridge and have had to redesign their razor. Though the new blades are sharp the the actual shave is not that close and takes several passes to achieve anything you want to leave the house with. This razor sadly is more style over function.

Gruum. Gruum were new to me until last month. The handle is very cumbersome, but the blades are sharp and provide a close shave. Not sure what the roller bar before the blades actually does. 

King of Shaves. King of Shaves will not be winning any design awards with this one. Seems to use the same cartridge as the Gruum system. Offers a close shave. Though after the third shave the blades seemed to dull quite quickly. 

The one out of the three that I would recommend is the King of Shaves. Close shave and very very cheap. 

But like most blokes I will pick up Gillette when they are on offer in the shops, sorry it is the best cartridge razor out there. 

Audio Testing #AudioMo

‚Äč

This is a quick test post of an audio app that I have been kindly allowed to beta test, thank you Kosso.

If it all goes well this is the app I’ll use for the #AudioMo challenge in June. 

This post was written and posted using the iOS WordPress mobile app so hoping the video embed works. 

Taste

The Pink n Whites of today do not taste like the ones from the early 80’s. The pink food colouring back then had a unique taste and complimented the tonne of sugar in each Pink n White. 

Not enough sugar and not enough food colouring in today’s Pink n Whites. Ahhhh memories. 

Human after all


It has been a very long time since people made music and someone then reorganised and moved parts of that music around. I have DJ’d and messed around with music for more years than I care to remember. For the last few years I have stepped away from remixing and megamixes.

One of the very first things that got me into this line of pain and pleasure was this album. Human League Unlimited Orchestra. Basically it was the Dare album reimagined by Martin Rushent.

I always thought my influences were ColdCut, S’Express, Bomb the Bass, etc etc, the list is genuinely endless. But it alway harks back to this album.

I’ll be back soon with one of my megamixes, yep it’ll go on way to long lol. Just look at my stuff on MixCloud for that lol.

Death, Death, Death.


As you all know I am not religious, I have no religion. Still confused why people who profess to believe in a god think that killing other humans is right. But that is not why this post is here. This post is for my death.

As I said before don’t have a religion, but am aware that surviving family and friends will want to mark my passing via burial or cremation. Not fussed what they pick after all the funeral is mainly for those surviving the person they lost.

My only wish is whoever survives me is that they play this exact mix if the tune embedded in this post. No hymns or prayers please.

My Story

Still updating my #SnapChat Story more out of habit than anything. Nobody uses the app with me anymore, used to be the way I got regular updates about my daughter, but that stopped on the day of her 1st Birthday.
