White Noise by TK from Ling Tosite Sigure Music Album Review

White Noise Music Album Review

I had promised myself I wouldn't be excited for White Noise but when the time came, I was still filled with this uncontrollable giddiness.

Which is why we have this review. I am always skeptical of any potential music releases by any and all musicians and singers. The difference here being I trust TK. I know whatever he does I am ready to think it will be amazing even if when I listen I may discover otherwise and be disappointed.

What I love about White Noise is how from the start TK was dripping tenderness in his voice. His music, of course, is such a difficult thing to comprehend but this too was on the same wavelength as his singing. But the highlight, the lyrics, I definitely get the sense a lot of care was taken with the lyrics. Which is good I care about the lyrics. 

It was utterly magical. How each song was cohesive but at once different. How as I listened to Addictive Dancer I was picturing a swirling vortex. Probably in white. How I was happily shocked by Showcase Reflection and how Metal it sounded. Ha! Take that Ling Tosite Sigure fans. This is what Metal or hardcore music would sound like by either Ling Tosite Sigure or TK from Ling Tosite Sigure. Everything before was obviously Rock. Sorry but some of TK's and Ling Tosite Sigure fans piss me off.

But back to Showcase Reflection. While Metal it still sounded like TK. I don't know, I guess, I appreciated he was willing to dabble in it. It impressed me.

And the closer, invalid phrase. How much noise it had! Which I am guessing is the connection to the album's title, White Noise. Yes, well, that noise is what was making me get euphoric back in the Secret Sensation (like there is tomorrow) mini album release. Yes. I do think invalid phrase was a good way to end the album. In a flirty but inciteful manner coupled with TK's penchant tenderness. 

As to were I, to be asked if TK's White Noise is innovating music. My answer would have to be. I don't know. When it comes to, TK music, genre blurs entirely and if I can't distinguish genre how could I say with certainty. Not only that but I'm no music fan or music aficionado, I just listen to music and hand out my observations. 

Thanks for reading!

Amazon App Review: Avast Mobile Security & Antivirus


Nothing is more important than security online and Avast is an app exactly for that. It offers scanning to keep your device like your Amazon Fire tablet free from unwanted privacy phishing, malware, spyware, and viruses. 

So far, I have used it four times and it has worked well. The interesting thing about this app is that when it does scan it shows little icons moving up and down. It's entertaining.

In so far as I have used it, I haven't had any security breaches but I am pretty sure it's working since it goes as far as to check the internet security. 

Get the app: Avast Mobile Security & Antivirus (Android)

As of this writing this antivirus protection and security is free on the Amazon Appstore. Get it while you can!

The Underworld: Blood Wars Movie Trailer Releases!


While browsing IMDb I came across the Underworld: Blood Wars movie trailer! It's perfect, it's beautiful! Placing my trust in Screen Gems and Sony but if the movie trailer is anything to go by this movie is going to be amazing! I can't even contain myself and yes I have been waiting patiently. 



And glad too since Kate Beckinsale as Selene with a few strands of white hair looks great! 

Movie Spotting! When the Bough Breaks and Bleed for This

When the Bough Breaks and Bleed for This movie spotting

Not a movie I was planning on watching but once I saw the movie trailer I had an urge to. When the Bough Breaks seems to be a movie that will deal with infidelity. And I absolutely love seeing this since it's always rather amusing to see people who foolishly cheat on their partners. Not realizing even if they do their emptiness or discontent within a relationship won't ever disappear by just giving in to an affair. But some people aren't very smart. What can you do?

Although we'll have to see, the movie trailer, does seem to suggest it could head in an entirely different direction.




Finally, we have Bleed for This. A movie that on first look I was very impressed by. How intense it was and how it excellently portrays how some people are very willful. They don't give up. And like the movie says and I agree, one, could easily start to grow complacent without even noticing. The irritation, really.


More exciting Bleed for This will have Aaron Eckhart. 

The Most Beneficial Ways to use Spotify even using Freemium


Benefiting from using Spotify



  • Freemium on offer is Spotify's free tier. Even so Freemium is still phenomenal. Ads are actually pretty entertaining as the companies explicitly get reported as sponsoring your music listening and so on. And if you like a company then you feel all warm inside about this.
In other words, a relationship is getting built between advertisers and listeners. Of course, it should be pointed out that a greater benefit is if there are more and more pools of sponsors to target varying demographics.

  • Spotify notifications. If a musician or something new you follow is available recently, Spotify, e-mail messages you about it. I love this. I had a notification about The Beatles' discography only now getting added and Porches Live Spotify sessions. The Spotify Porches Live Sessions, by the way, helped to solidify my relationship with Porches and see a little bit of who Aaron Maine is. He's pretty random but funny.
  • Playlist creation. The true, authentic way to discover music, I forsee. As long as those who curate and post playlists online don't just post about popular music acts. 
  • The Twitter-Spotify integration is good. More people could easily get exposed to music.

Thoughts on Music Streaming Services Particularly Spotify and Its Effectiveness


The case: Why would anyone pay for music streaming services when renting music means after your subscription is up you don’t own the music?
Deeper considerations. First off I’ll start of by saying what kinds of people are drawn to services like Spotify and every other service where music streaming is the central offering. These people are college students, maybe other students not just in college, and finally music aficionados. While originally I thought that these mere three demographics or two depending on how you look at it are a small portion of the bigger population it should be noted that not everyone places the same value on music. I have a mother who doesn’t care for music in the least and as such I am sure there are people who don’t care about music or take an interest much in it. So from the beginning seen like this the music industry’s focus should be on those who care about the music industry, the musicians/singers, and or music itself.
The scales are this: #1-People who have no interest in music. #2Most are those who are in-between. They like music just fine but have no need to purchase music or seek it out, although occasionally may be hit with the need.#3-And then the music aficionados. Music aficionados consist of students whether college or not and those who have a rooted interest in music.These two types consume music a lot. Students because they have to keep up with the latest music fads or whatever else others are listening to. While those with a vested interest in music who are the true music aficionados do it because they love looking into what musicians out there are doing.
While it may appear grim it isn’t. I suspect the music industry has always made money from those who care about music the most. Even so, I think it might still be necessary to leave CD options available for those who are in-between with their interest in music.
As such it might be that this small demographic outlined above might be the ones apt to care at all about the music industry.  They are individuals that have some small measure of remorse or maybe all of it to want to support the industry thereby trying to curb their music listening appetites and buying music streaming subscriptions. Which is good for them since if they bought a subscription as soon as they are hit with a need to listen to music that they want then and there they won’t have to go through illegal means somewhere online, but instead utilize their subscription.
Another benefit for a music listener who takes advantage of music streaming services would be that they get to sample a full album, thereby eliminating useless albums that they wouldn’t want to have to spend time or money on. This is crucial because if that music listener is also a music appreciator and loves physically buying CDs they would want to own an album or songs they liked from listening on Spotify.
So it is here that Spotify could be useful. The only thing is for Spotify to be truly effective they need to add all the music catalogue of the world. Music from every artist imaginable because it only makes sense, music listeners, should be able to have access to everything since if they didn’t bother with a music streaming service in the first place they could find all of it online somewhere. See?
And another thing where they need to improve to become more effective is to increase the music discovery capability. As it stands, Spotify only offers modest music discovery benefits.
Yes. While I concede that Spotify has its benefits one has to keep on Spotify’s case. They need to further increase as much music on their service and allow downloadable songs (even if imposing some type of download restriction for 5 songs a day) and afterwards allow you to keep them. That way this can be seen as a sign of good faith between the company/labels/artists and listeners of music. It is only when this happens that more will slowly adapt this into their regular habits.
All this comes on me trying to investigate if there is any merit in music streaming services which led me to try Spotify Premium.
*I chose Spotify because it is the most talked about service when it comes to music streaming. So congrats Spotify at the least you’re making a splash.*
Positives of the actual service
  • Great sound quality. Music when listened really resonates and overall sounds rich.
  • Design and layout of the site is very appealing and actually provides a pleasant atmosphere for listening to music.
  • Spotify offers music listeners stats of those who most listen to an act. This is fun because it allows you to see where the fans of your favorite musician are coming from. Insights are quite handy.
  • Modest music discovery features. Can’t help but believe there could be more done? Like maybe finding key people with good taste in music or who could individually curate music for music listeners who use Spotify? Probably wishful thinking. I mean as a person who occasionally gets into music even I see how discovering music might be the whole problem that the music industry might really have. And due to this many music listeners not finding what they truly seek, end up becoming complacent and not having an interest in actively searching for music. Seen like this, I guess, Spotify cannot entirely be blamed. As it stands music discovery is tricky, especially taking into account people’s personal music tastes.
  • Details on music downloads need to be made more clear and in general music downloading should be given free reign for the most part. Like I brought up before.


Negatives
That said. There are a few limitations that musicians, singers, and labels should keep in mind. In terms of available services, Spotify, is best for those who have a bigger interest in music only and who for whatever reason may not want to take an interest in using Amazon services. This is very important because if I am being honest Amazon Prime seems like a more appealing option flat out especially with them now rolling out monthly Amazon Prime subscriptions which include Amazon Prime Music if you buy for $10.99 a month. With this you have access to a movie watching catalogue, the music catalogue, and free shipping on various items you could possibly want. And let me tell you Amazon’s services are both appealing and offer tons of music.
Spotify further loses its edge when you consider Soundcloud a service I have much higher hope for because with it you can listen to music much like Spotify but also upload your own tracks for podcasts, audio book reviews, and other audio creations. The thing is Soundcloud has a limit on the amount you can upload and after a while you have to subscribe to paid options. Due to this if someone is an audio creator and avid music listener he or she might consider Soundcloud over Spotify. So really while Spotify does have competition here I think it is merely a case of different services for different people. Spotify still retains mild edge since there are some people only interested in music and that is all.
Time for some end to end thoughts? While originally I wasn’t convinced Spotify could succeed in giving value back to the music industry, I was wrong.
Yes. I think it is quite possible that Spotify could help the music industry as well as Amazon Prime paired up with Amazon Prime Music, and Soundcloud. They just all have subtle, different things they offer for users.

ABOUT SPOTIFY

Spotify icon

Spotify was founded for two reasons: to bring all the music in the world to all the world’s music fans in a fun, easy and affordable way – and to create real value for the music industry again, including labels, publishers and the terrific songwriters and artists who create and perform the music we love.

Amazon App Review: Easy Voice Recorder Pro

Easy Voice Recorder Amazon App

Another offering from Amazon Underground that brings you free apps. 

Again as I brought up before after the death of Houndbite, an audio website, I needed some type of place or audio hosting website that could keep audio live for use on my blog. I now use Soundcloud but I still needed a good voice recorder app and this is the one that caught my eye.

Basic and streamlined. It has a record panel on the left to record and on the right a panel to listen to your recordings. The recordings can be renamed to what you'd like and one other great feature is you can upload your recordings to social media networks or Soundcloud.




This app is free on the Amazon Appstore as of this writing!

Blogging Trends this 2016 and Moving Forward

This year there does seem to be a lot of so-called "social media influencers", a word simply used to indicate individuals who exude influence on the Internet.

The Social Media Networking of Things

And while there are a lot of video personalities out there. I don't know I don't see a lot of those Youtubers or photo Instagrammers being successful. Partly because a lot of these are adapting a copycat cute Instagrammer personality or the sweet girl-next-door who goes to college.

And I don't want to be the bearer of bad news but this isn't all that relatable. That's why for these copycat personalities they'll be getting only a select demographic and likely those who were the originals of what they do.

Next. I should address Instagram. While Youtube should ever remain the most accessible and flat-out fun when it doesn't get ugly, Instagram, suffers from the boring and what else is there syndrome. Considering this I don't see it having staying power and as we speak I don't see its potential. Not to mention its design and layout offers nothing exciting. Key things I look for in websites or apps.

Those things out of the way, let's talk about what I do see having potential: 

#1 Twitter: Yes. Always at the top. For good reason. It's very multi-media. It has become a place where people can directly interact with companies, brands, websites, and so many types of people.

#2 Soundcloud: Not expecting this? Well, me either. As I first observed Soundcloud I merely thought it could be a competitor to Spotify but no. Its value lies in potentially being utilized by social media influencers and bloggers. We can use it as a podcasting tool and or for audio memos for our readers while we build communities right on the site.

#3 Pinterest: I wasn't sure if to add it or not but Pinterest has a small potential. Creators are drawn to it for inspiration through its visual elements and if so social media influencers and bloggers can utilize it to form closer connections amongst themselves. But it's not exactly for readers or followers because its purely visual and not much else.

#4 Google +: Google + is a little difficult to place. The only use I forsee in it is this: focusing on the creation of groups and for people in there to share stuff from there purely based on interests and hobbies. The thing is Google should focus on encouraging group growth because while I have created groups with specific goals I only get a handful of people joining. Instead people want to stay apart in their own social media profile bubble and interact from there and only once in a while check other things like company pages.

The Larger-Scale Plans of Things

E-newsletters shall be very important moving forward. I see this now. One is busy and before you know it time has passed and if one likes a blog/website one wants to be sure they are keeping up by simply getting a message through e-mail. Simple and hassle-free.

Because no no one should want to bother with checking tons of other channels. That's overwhelming.

Keeping up constantly. Things are constantly happening and developing and due to that you need to keep up constantly on your blog/website and social media networks so that your readers keep you fresh in their minds.

The Smaller-Scale Plans of Things

GIFs: These things are entertaining. When done right and not overused they can add flair to your blogging efforts or social media networking efforts.

Be authentic: Yes. Do but don't get arrogant.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading.

IMDb the online movie database used by this blog and Amazon services


IMDb the website and service implementation on offer via the Amazon Appstore. 

Amazon App Review: PhotoSuite Pro 4 vs. Photo Lab

As you may know this is the website that gives me the story background on the movies I will eventually review. Besides that it offers actor credits, actor biographies, movie trivia, and movie watcher discussion threads. 

Originally started in 1990 by professional computer programmer Col Needham, IMDb was integrated in the UK as the Internet Movie Database Ltd. in 1996. 

Growing from what was CEO and founder Col Needham's personal movie database.

While in 1998, IMDb would be acquired by Amazon.com. So it was with this move that eventually IMDb in the present would be implemented to actor recognize actors in movies and access movie info. while you watch a movie on an Amazon device.

Author Guest Post: Writing in a Variety of Genres by Pembroke Sinclair


I write an eclectic mix of stories.  I’ve written Western (modern, not historical), horror, sci fi, fantasy, and nonfiction.  I’ve written adult, YA, middle grade, and children’s books.  I’ve written short stories, novelettes, and novels.  And the reason I do is to get better at writing.

I try not to limit myself to one type of story or one genre because I don’t think it’s fair to me.  I strive to become a better writer, and I believe that challenging myself in different ways will make me that way.  I’m sure there are those out there who think mastering one genre will be more beneficial instead of trying to master all of them, but that’s not what I’m trying to do.  I’m trying to tell a story, and I’m not going to stifle my ability just because it may not fit into a particular category.

Shifting gears between genres isn’t difficult.  When a story pops into my head, it’s pretty insistent about how it wants to be written, and it doesn’t shut up until it’s on the page.  When one is done, another is usually waiting right behind it.

I don’t think I would ever try to write more than one story at the same time.  I’ve thought about it.  I’ve thought about working on a young adult novel and a middle grade book, but I don’t think either one would turn out.  I wouldn’t be able to give either my full attention, and that’s what each story needs.

I would like to tell you that I have a favorite genre to write in, that sci fi is my favorite or I’m only going to write fantasy, but that’s not true.  I will say, however, that I’ve discovered I enjoy writing young adult novels a touch more than adult books.  One of the reasons for this is because my characters get to be naive—and most of them are.  There’s something exciting and fun about writing a coming of age story, so my recent works have fallen more into the young adult category.

I’ve discovered in the years that I’ve been writing that novels are my favorite to create.  All of the other forms (short stories, flash fiction, novelettes, etc.) have their place, and I enjoy reading them, but I really savor taking the time to flesh out my characters and to let them tell their story in as many pages as they need.  I enjoyed attempting to write short stories, and it was a good exercise in brevity, but it wasn’t me.  

Writing should be about what makes you happy.  If that means writing in one genre, do it.  If that means experimenting with different things, go for it.  Whatever you do, just write.

Wucaii by Pembroke Sinclair is available on Amazon!

Amazon App Review: PhotoSuite Pro 4 vs. Photo Lab


The great thing about the Amazon Appstore is there are a lot of great finds in apps for free. Seeing as I am a blogger I work with a lot of visual presentation or photos.

I was looking for apps that will add an extra layer of fun to my photos or spruice them up. PhotoSuite Pro 4 drew my attention from how it reminded me of a desktop program I use Picasa 3 and if it was anything like that I expected some semblance of cropping or lighting changing capabilities. It does have this but better still it has features to resize your photos and save them under a certain name and to export them on your device to later send to your email or social media networking site.

Photo Lab, on the other hand, looked interesting to me and I was wondering what backgrounds would be on offer. It's pretty fun but it is more static. Rather than spruicing up photos it is more to change the appearance of a whole photo. Out of the two, I think PhotoSuite Pro 4 is more useful but I like both of them seeing as they each offer different things. 

Both these apps are free on the Amazon Appstore as of this writing!

Cardpool Gift Card Exchange Review


For a long time I had been holding on to a $25 Starbucks gift card. A gift card I know I would never use since I don't like the Starbucks atmosphere. So I was at a loss on what to do with it. Thankfully online I found Cardpool. They buy, sell, and trade gift cards. 

They can give you a check for your gift card or trade you for a gift card. I chose to trade for an Amazon e-gift card. Since I wanted to get it as fast as possible. I went with the option of sending the information of my gift card online and that's all it took. They will sell the gift card for less and at a profit.

Later I received an email notification of my transaction and that in 1 day I would receive my $17.76 Amazon.com e-gift card.

They take about $7 or $8 for these trades but they are handling all the inconveniences for you. And since this is a service I wanted to say that I did encounter an issue with Cardpool. 

I did not get my Amazon e-gift card in 1 day as stated so after 4 days of waiting I then contacted them. They explained the cause, a system failure, and I eventually got my Amazon gift card claim code. So everything worked out in the end.

Do I still recommend it? Yes, I do.

Skincare Product Review: St. Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer


In my search for a specific type of moisturizer that is sting-free and non-greasy I finally came across St. Ives' facial moisturizer. This in part a tip-off from how amazing and soothing their smooth and nourished oatmeal face scrub + mask was. 

After trying that I assumed they must release quality products in other skincare areas. I was right with the facial moisturizer. It's as gentle and soothing as say the facial scrub and mask I tried from St. Ives. 

Given I use a benzoyl peroxide cleanser to keep my face clear seeing as I am prone to breakouts this worked in a non-intrusive way. The facial lotion is creamy and has a soft herbal scent that when applied feels a bit chilly but doesn't sting. The best part is, it is dewy when applied on your face and then it settles. Throughout this whole process it is not greasy and once it has soaked in there is a light dewiness. I find that nice but what I kind of dislike is that my face has a light sheen from the St. Ives facial moisturizer but at least after a while that disappears.

It's pretty great, regardless. While the sheen present is a disadvantage I still got what I was setting out in search for: non-stinging or aggravating and non-greasy.

Disclosure on my face skin: I am one of those people who cannot wear fake jewelry on my ears because it will be toxic. It will get an allergic reaction. Furthermore, my skin breaks out a lot and a lot of the facial moisturizers that I require to keep my face from drying are not good for my sensitive skin. Many aggravate it and burn when I apply them.

Exclusive Poem: Less than a Decibel by Dane Cobain

Dontchathink people are simple?
I mean, have you seen TV
where people seem easy to please,
a little too perfect
with their white teeth, clean hair
and high-end designer clothing?

Maybe it’s a ‘me’ thing,
an ego trip like a flicked switch
in the darkness;
all I know is
my life is not the life
they’re living.

My life isn’t complicated;
I wake up and work
and try not to live a lie
in silence.

Still,
silence is golden,
and I’m holding on
for a silent,
some sort of euphoria
you can drink like water
and absorb it.

This isn’t profound
or high-brow;
this is lowest common denominator
like the way your friends hold you
as you soldier on.

This is a silent song

about the meds that I’m on.
