Ubuntu Touch

For me the thing that stops me fully committing to #ubuntutouch from ubports is #OpenStore There are no official apps, ie no official Instagram / Facebook / Twitter apps.

If you want to be the alternative to iOS and Android you need to learn the lessons from the failures that went before. Windows Phone being a prime example. By the time they got official apps from Instagram / Twitter / Facebook etc it was too late people had moved on tired of waiting.

Until official apps hit the Ubuntu Touch platform it will be just a hobby for me and not a daily driver.

Close Shave

You wonder why I keep trying with double edge razors and am now trying out single edge razors. Look at this picture of a bastion of the sea, a ray swimming through our shite and more importantly plastic. Cartridge razors are blades housed in plastic and can’t be recycled. Only one brand that makes cartridge razors recycles them, but the shave is horrific and that’s a bit sad. So I am trying in all ways to find a shave that works that isn’t using plastic, specially plastic in parts that need disposing.

Criticise me for posting lots of shaving pictures, but don’t be ignorant why I do.

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.
