A surprisingly brilliant new video (below) for an old song that never got the credit it deserved because it was tucked at the end of one of Queen’s lesser revered albums. Personally, I thought The Miracle was a superb album because it was consistently high-level throughout. The lack of an anthem meant it didn’t cut … Continue reading It was so worth it
21 years sounds like a long time, but in that relatively short period so much has been born from the original iPod. Arguably we have the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and myriad other products from different brands all because of the original iPod.
I love a good pair of earbuds! In fact, I really can’t function without my personal earbuds. Once my earbuds are in, the rest of the world is out. I deep dive into the world of my favorite tunes, away from real-world problems, happy in my own little audio bubble. Hence, owning a pair of … Continue reading Crazy AirPods Pro 2 competitors
An undiscovered Queen track. What is not to like? Well, the voice was still there and the worst Queen tracks tend to be better than the best of the rest, but I must say that this one is a little too whimsical for me. Queen worked best when they went over the top and even … Continue reading Face It Alone
The new Apple Watch series 8 is possibly the most iterative release to date and if it had been released with no device above it in the range there would have been howls of ‘there’s no innovation’ and ‘boring!’. Quite rightly in my opinion because crash detection and temperature sensing (for women only of course) … Continue reading The Apple Watch Ultra, iPhone 14 Pro and new AirPods Pro

The piano in the video is from Edelweiss. We had to modify it so it could play Rush E and all the keys at once otherwise out of the box they can play about 30 keys at once. Thanks to Kirk Ridiculous, silly and impressive all at once.
Every now and then a song falls into my Apple Music and I end up playing it over and over again. This is one of them and the video is just as good. Time to explore more Florence who I have largely ignored until now. Have you been stunned by a song recently? If so, … Continue reading King
For more than forty years, Brian May relied on his Seiko 7548 (quartz) diver that he bought on a trip to Japan in 1975. When it came to designing his first watch with Seiko, the natural choice was a Seiko 5 Sports with its signature crown at 4 o’clock flanked by two crown guards. Like … Continue reading The Seiko 5 Sports x Brian May (again)

The more I consider this, the more my head hurts. So many things … Continue reading Spotify to remove Neil Young’s music
The epic was developed from composer Jim Steinman’s rock musical called Neverland (based on Peter Pan) and produced by Todd Rundgren. In 1972 Steinman had Bette Midler sing the 1972 demo for “Heaven Can Wait,” but it found a home on Meat Loaf’s album and, thanks to his dramatic delivery, transformed. This over the top … Continue reading Heaven Can Wait
