Sorry For Being Away For Too Long..

Just like anything else, offline life steals us just when we’re having too much fun online. We don’t know what happens next. We gain friends, we loose some..and one day those that we love simply disappear from our lives. But that’s what makes life constant-the change that no matter how we want things to be where they are, shit happens.

One day we wake up and our best friends turn to strangers/enemies. We ask how the hell these people whom we thought we know by heart suddenly start behaving like assholes and treat us like shit. But that is the game of life-constant change. And what doesn’t destroy you will only make you stronger. DON’T ever think that your enemies will never become your best pals. As the opposite has shown us, nothing is predictable.

Now for some tech update, I have been having this wonderful love affair with my JBL clip 2. It is a good bluetooth speaker to be taken anywhere because it is handy. I apologize that I could not provide my own video (blame that on not being able to prepare for this post) but I am posting a video done by a vlogger.

My personal experience after using it for months is that though the sound is decent, the battery suffers when you turn it full blast. Better bring a powerbank with you (which I have recently done) if you want hours and hours of music. It has a good sound for a small size and though I will be getting the more powerful bluetooth speakers like the Pulse or other variations, I can say this one gets the job done especially if you are not really planning to pay it full blast!

Amazon Echo

For months now I have read great raves about the Amazon Echo and the more I read the more I want to get one. But I don’t think I am crazy enough to blow my salary for a $179 tech that is in its first generation but we will see. I posted videos below to give you an idea what are the things it can do and the things that need improvements.

It uses voice command just like Apple’s Siri or Window’s Cortana. The name is Alexa which sounds a bit porny for you dirty minds! It is recommended for those who have embraced home automation and would love this technology to do their daily tasks.

Fling is the Snapchat Alternative?

Yes?

No?

I started using it a few hours ago and although it uses the same function as Snapchat, it has a more ‘global’ approach as you can see other ‘Fingers.’ It’s easy to use and less buggy. Although it can be confusing at times trying to get back to the home screen after you’ve clicked the chat option. But this is a new app and I am sure the developers will make this better in future releases.

Here are the samples of things I did and I will link you to the official App Store in a bit.

My Friend Alex Pardini Has a Cool Music Studio

Alex Pardini is one of the coolest dudes in the planet. He created the header for my blog http://spheremusic.me as a gift. Since then our friendship grew and one day I will come visit him in Switzerland. How cool is that?!

Apart from being a singer-songwriter, he is also a photographer, sports enthusiast and label owner. This is how his studio looks like:

Just a little insight. That’s how it looks and sounds in my studio these days.
As far as I remember I used the Elektron RYTM, Korg Volca Bass and Yamaha An1x (amongst other gear) for the track.-Alex Pardini.

Yes, that’s his music in the background. And he is also good looking! 😉
