Motown's Secret of Success
Motown’s Secret of Success Berry Gordy, the founder and CEO of legendary Motown Records developed a simple plan in the early days of his record company: “I broke down my whole operation into three functions: Create, Make, Sell. I felt any business had to do that. Create something, Make something and then Sell it. Using this phrase as a slogan kept my thinking in focus.” The Create phase...

Where does English football go next?
After watching all of the games England played this World Cup and also seeing the public and commentators go wild when we beat a poor Slovenia side in the last game of the group stages I knew that we would struggle against any team in the last 16, whether it was Germany or Ghana we would have struggled. In all three games in the group stages England played, probably, 30 minutes of good football...

Iphone 4 release
Yesterday I went into town to have a look as I haven’t been in Stortford for a few months. I saw a 10 people queue outside the 02 store at 12.30! Supposedly people had been queueing outside the shop since 8am! I went into the Orange store, where nobody was queueing and had a play at the new Iphone for literally a minute. Instantly it felt sturdier and also more comfortable in the hand....

University finished - Back to Stortford
As the title suggests, I’ve finished university, actually I finished a few weeks ago but officially my course finished on the 18th of June. I’m pretty sure I know what I’m getting which I’m not too happy about but I can honestly say that I’ve done my best and I feel that I couldn’t have worked that much harder. So now that university has finished I’ve left...

in your atmosphere: Shooting Rob Mac →
After checking the weather last night a team of us decided to finally get our arses in gear and shoot some footage of Rob Mac’s songs around Bath.

Lakers vs Celtics Game 6 Report
Last night, I again stayed up into the early hours of the morning to watch the Basketball. At half-time, the Celtics were playing so bad I was tempted to go to bed. I gave them the benefit of the doubt, especially as they came back against the Magic in the previous series. Last night wasn’t the case. The Lakers dominated them. So rather than doing a quarter analysis I’ll give you an...

Boston vs L.A game 5
Again, last night I stayed up until 4am watching the NBA playoffs on ESPN. The game was intense with the “superstars playing like superstars” (Magic Johnson, ESPN after game commentary). Quarter by Quarter analysis Pre-game Both sides looked pumped when introduced by the announcer with the TD Garden fans booing every LA player and then going mad when the C’s were announced....
This is a video by my girlfriend of her dog Bela. The footage is fantastic and Bela is gorgeous. Just thought i’d share what a beautiful dog Bela is with everyone as well as the wicked film that Molly has produced.
Boston Celtics - Fighting Spirit
So last night I stayed up until 5am GMT to watch the whole of Game 4 between the Celtics and the Lakers. The first half was boring and I was so tempted to go to sleep especially as I thought the C’s were going to lose, there offence was pathetic, Rondo missed a couple of lay-ups, Garnett wasn’t hitting his money shot at the top of the key and Ray Ray was going missing for the second...

The past couple of days I’ve spent mixing other peoples tracks and getting everything sorted for my submission. Now that it’s all coming to an end I figured that I better spend some time on my own stuff to get it finished and everyone can then hear it. Yesterday I spent the evening in the studio with Molly recording my lead vocals for ‘Heal the Heartache’. They’re...
