Productive Mondays don't exist!
Being hyper productive on a Monday is not possible, so why try and create a productive Monday? You are better off planning an extremely productive Tuesday!
Before I logged into Tumblr I wanted to do something. Now I have forgotten. Thanks Tumblr
How many forms of social media do you use?
So, I was just thinking, since I started using computers - at a pretty young age I have probably signed up to loads of old social media websites than I can remember. Just counting them up in my head there’s Bebo Hi5 LinkedIn Flickr Foursquare Facebook Myspace Twitter Tumblr Wordpress Dopplr I mean those are only the ones I can remember. Without a doubt theres a few I signed...
Queens of the Stone Age!
Late last night I had a compelte ‘Queens of the Stone Age’ revival. I forgot how much I loved that band and ‘Lullabies to Paralize’ really should rank higher on my favourite albums of all time list! So I am sure you can imagine that I am rather annoyed at the fact that I don’t have any on my iPod. Then again, considering I am recovering from a broken ear-drum this...
It is now the middle of the night!
Yet, due to the wonderful post scheduling feature I am still uploading blog. Well I hope. I hate to do this as it seems a waste of your time but I need to check if this actually works. If it does, I promise more posts published at random times with random information to keep you all amused, even whilst I am (hopefully) fast asleep. Thanks for putting up with this! Christopher
Can I just say that on Sunday I got just over 120 page views in one day and smashed the 100 Unique visitor benchmark I set myself (I wanted to get that in a month not 10 days!!!) Anyway, thank you all for reading, I greatly appreciate it. I hope I continue to provide content you want to read! And if any of you are reading from Venezuala i’d love to know who you are! Getting quite a few...
Anyone know of any good Book trading cafe's?
Working on a feature at the moment concerning these Cafe’s where you can trade a book for one in the cafe if you bring one of your own. Issue is, I know nothing of good ones so can anyone reccomend one in London? Let me know on here or twitter if possible (@chrisahamer on twitter) I don’t normally ask but pleast Re-Blog or like as I really need a helping hand with this one! ...

Why must it get cold again?
Just as I thought springtime had finally arrived, the weather reports show it is going to get cold again. I disagree with this, majorly. Our plumb tree is getting ready to bloom, other trees and plants were just stretching their muscles (branches) due to the lovely 15 degrees Celsius and then this happens. Ugh. I disagree with it totally. Winter go away, I am quite literally bored of you.
The best ways to reset a MacBook Pro
I just thought I would detail the different resets you can do to get your mac working again after having techinical issues. These are not the only ways to fix things nor will they always fix anything. Yet sometimes they can work wonders. All of this is specific to intel based macs. 1. The most basic thing you can do is called a PRAM Reset Switch off your mac, and before the screen goes grey...
So anyone else enjoying Boardwalk Empire as much as I am? Makes me glad they brought Sky Atlantic over here, HBO really do churn out some fantastic photos. Of the programs that have started this year, this really is the best executed of the lot. Good story, awesome cinematography and a really good cast. I do however think its a bit odd that the US had its feathers so ruffled by Skins when...
It would appear that *touch wood* my ear is getting better. I still face constant ringing and some pain but my hearing is improving and it would seem that air is no longer passing through my ear drum. To say I am relieved and happy doesn’t even come close. In other news, I have muscle ache from taking photos last night. Something is very wrong with me… ^_^
Bands, Blackberry's and dissertations.
Have been unbelievably busy recently, trying somehow to get my dissertation to the next stage whilst still trying to keep on top of the sushi photographs as well as band review and photos (with a MacBook Pro that really is not playing ball) and a Blackberry that does not like me. First thing first, I went to see ‘Karvel’ last night at Barfly in Camden, a band that is in the up and...
Apple's new MacBook Pro
As some of you may have noticed, Apple launched their new MacBook Pro’s yesterday, amid very little fanfare (which is untypical for Apple) Looking at the devices - obviously only online - I have to say I am not particularly impressed. I use a 2008 MBP myself- in the current shape - and looking at the ‘new’ model there is very little new tech that has gone into them. Yes we...

Radiohead 'The King of Limbs' full review
By Christopher A. Hamer When Radiohead released their latest album it came right out of the blue – no one was expecting a release. What’s more they even released the album one day earlier than they had announced. With a 4 year gap since their last album and despite the short notice from the band anticipation had mounted massively before the release. It is safe to say that fans have not been...
15 Celsius and a month early
Today is warm, very warm in fact. It actually feels like spring which considering we are heading into march is probably a very good thing! Am just about to hand in the assignment for uni and turns out after doing both parts that only one is due for tomorrow. So I have actually worked in advance, I mean this is not what I do - this must be one of only a handful of assignments I have ever handed...
Finally finished my damned dissertation journal. Exactly 4 hours later than I wanted it to be done but still, better late - and on time - than never. I did however find something very interesting, http://www.harvardgenerator.com/ is basically a generator for book titles and descriptions in the harvard way just by typing in ISBN’s I swear this just saved me about half an hour!!! Absolute...
Working late into the night.
Sadly I am still up working late into the night to get this assignment done. To be honest, I could go to sleep and finish it tomorrow, but I am pretty much in the flow now so it’d be quite silly to give up and stop :/ However as the night goes on my requirements for staying away become quite strict. 1. No more than one cup of coffee to every 3 cups of tea. 2. A steady stream of musical...

Time can be a bitch
So yesterday, not so productive. What’s worse, turns out my deadline is one day earlier than expected - tomorrow around 3PM. OK. This doesn’t at all put me in an awkward position… So I have just under 24 hours to get an assignment done that I had assigned two weeks to. Fantastic. In other news, I am just gona go shoot myself…
Turntables - One of the most confusing things I've...
So amongst trying to work on my dissertation I have been looking into acquiring a turntable. I have actually never owned an LP of my own, but have had interest in it for a while. I have always considered myself a bit of an audiophile, I believe I have a good understanding of most elements in audio and can normally make good, informed decisions to upgrade my equipment. However for the first...

Review of Accolade at the Finborough Theatre
By Christopher A Hamer Accolade, which is currently enjoying a stint at the Finborough theatre, was extremely controversial when it first appeared in the 1950’s. The way it addressed the subjects of orgies and underage sex were completely taboo then, however does it still have the same impact now? Written by Emlyn Williams, the play, is set in London in 1950 and follows the life of Will Trenting...
Bad News, Good News.
Well bad news and good news really. The bad news is that I have broken my ear drum. Which is totally messed up. I appear to have made a small hole which has meant constant ringing and some pain over the past 24 hours. If I am lucky it will heal by itself and my hearing will mostly return. If not… well that’d be pretty crap to be honest. I am still not 100% sure how I pulled it off but I...
