My SteelSeries Siberia V2 Headphones

I pulled the trigger, on the SteelSeries Siberia V2 headphones, after both my Logitech G330‘s and my FutureSoundLab Zero headphones died around the same time. To be fair, the G330’s lasted for over 4 years, and may have lasted even longer if I used the travel case.

Lucy, The Movie

Taipei. I feel like the director is trying to tell me something. The message doesn’t seem to come across. Everything feels weird and out of place, more so than it should at the beginning of a movie.
Ah, the action begins, or does it? There is a lot of chatter in a language I don’t understand, and apparently neither do the characters. Yes, bring in an interpreter, that will help.

CyanogenMod 11 – Why did I wait so long?

What is CyanogenMod ?

It’s an open source operating system that is based on Android, and usually optimizes the functions that Android offers out of the box. It’s faster and a lot closer to vanilla Android.

Well, this is the basis of the TV show “Being Erica” and I love it.

Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox in Ireland

Yesterday evening, in the Whelans pub in Dublin, I was transported back in time to around the 1930-1940’s by the Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox. It wasn’t just their music that did this, oh no, it was the way they played, the way they acted, everything.

You see, I already knew what to expect from watching their Youtube Channel, but boy were my expectations exceeded, actually, blown out of the water completely. It has been a long time since my ears were this pleased to relay the sweet sound of music to my brain.
