The MFA – The Difference It Makes

The MFA (Motherfucking Allstars) are London-based duo Rhys Evans (Welsh) and Alastair Douglas (not Welsh).

This is the song that made them popular and look as promising as the Chemical Brothers. Minimalistic electro dance is probably the easiest way I can describe this.

Social Media: A Simple Analogy

This is an attempt for me to better understand the concept of social media and try to explain it in simple terms.

A lot of businesses are misinterpreting the concept of social media. Rather than seeing it as a platform to interact/ socialise, they see it more as a medium to propagate self-serving news. In other words, one way communication (I'm talking, you're listening).

Let's use a very familiar analogy: making friends. When a business gathers twitter followers and facebook fans, and bombards them with nothing but sales ads, it is like a guy who goes around making tonnes of friends only to use them to buy stuff off him.

Runaway by GRUM (Dr Detroit Video Mashup)

This is seriously funky!

An old Dan Aykroyd film (Dr Detroit) was mashed up to accompany 'Runaway' by GRUM. In case you were curious, the movie involved pimps and prostitutes. And yes, that's Fran Drescher!

Love the whole dance scene towards the end of this clip, the 80s porno-esque looks and the groovy synth beats. Wish my life were like that everyday.

Tears for Fears nostalgia

Rage was doing a lot of Countdown episodes the other night and quite naturally, it brings out a lot of 80s nostalgia. They showed a lot of Tears for Fears clips and I felt it would be a crime not to share something that is an anthem for great 80s music.
