Babymetal was one of the more interesting “bands” I think I’ve ever seen in concert. So much fusion going on, and not just the music but the people in attendance as well.
This past Canada Day weekend family and myself went to Cleveland House in Minett, Ontario. The weather was iffy a lot of the time so I kept leaving my dSLR behind, and getting smartphone shots, which annoyed me to no end. Eventually though I pulled out the dSLR and the weather was great for the waterski show.
Last week Google’s Chromecast device was made available in Canada, a little hesitant I decided to purchase one. At just some $40 it seemed like even if it didn’t do everything I hoped, it would probably still be worth it.
Seeing others produce timelapse videos of them constructing something has always made me wish to do the same thing, except I never build anything so I’ve not had the chance. Additionally, I’ve never had a video camera worth a damn before September of last year. Here’s my first attempt, constructing a Formula 1 car produced by Mega Bloks, knock off Lego essentially.
Even with the prospects of metered Internet in the air here in Canada I’ve been using streaming media sites at an increasing pace. Using sites like Vimeo for their always excellent independently produced films, YouTube for the the randomness that only it can offer to services like Netflix who offers a ton of content on demand in a superior fashion to my Cable provider. So it’s only fitting that Crunchyroll would be the next step for me.
I don’t really do music here, but Arcade Fire’s really outdone themselves with The Suburbs. I can’t stop listening and feel compelled to share.
3 months ago a friend and co-worker asked me if I wanted to go to Muse’s concert in March. I hesitantly agreed and many months past, a set of tickets sold, a new set bought, time booked off work. Then suddenly, March 8th, Air Canada Center, concert day.
Today’s post is actually a series of posts, and while each could probably deserve their own post in one way or another, I don’t want to write that many posts over such a short time.
