My Woshin Mashin (that’s right – My Woshin Mashin) was created by 3 friends from Russia and Germany. It happened in 2010 when Bibi Tulin and Hugo Simons left their previous bands and decided to make something new and different. Together with Wolfgang Scherman (their German friend who lives in Berlin and wears a crocodile mask) they gave a strange name to the project – My Woshin Mashin.
Later, under the influence of German dance tunes, Mike Patton’s work, English metal bands and old school music, these three released their first demo-tape “Amazing Demo”, extended play “We Came in Peace” and their first long-play “Mawama” which was called “amazing (9/10)” in Brutal Resonance E-Zine, “funkelnden Kitsch” in Zillo Magazine and “better than amphetamine” in Russian Billboard.
Slim Loris, from Stockholm, Sweden, blends Indie Pop/Rock with Americana and a pinch of Swedish melancholy. The band formed in 2009 by Mattias Cederstam (vocals, bass, piano) and Robert Barrefelt (guitars), from the remnants of two indie acts, and released a collection of demos entitled “Amateur Night at the Asylum” the year after.
In 2011, Slim Loris’s debut album “Down To Earth” was released, led by the 1st single “Low”, showing the band’s fine-tuned song writing skills and classic rock sense of melody. Neufutur.com says “Slim Loris cuts nothing less than a shambling masterpiece” and gave the album an 8.7/10 score. Billboard Discoveries says of the release “What Slim Loris have accomplished on their full-length, “Down to Earth” is a sombre turn to the usually poppy sound of the 60′s British invasion”. Two songs from Slim Loris were also featured in the Swedish film “Var kommer mjolken ifran”.
Producer/Creator Anne Flournoy’s “The Louise Log”, a comedy web series written by Anne Flournoy and Sandra Vannucchi, is currently enjoying a new-found popularity after earning a recent ‘Best Web Show’ nomination at the 2013 Shorty Awards. “The Louise Log” stars Christine Cook, Jennifer Sklias-Gahan, Pascal Yen-Pfister (star of Splinter Cell: Extinction – Fan Series), Danusia Trevino (creator/star of Wonder Bread), Mathilde Dratwa and Catherine Siracusa. The scripted series has two seasons (34 episodes) on TheLouiseLog.com and YouTube, and plans to shoot Season 3 this Fall. Those who want to support the series can get involved at SeedAndSpark.com.
“The Louise Log”, based on the inner life of a real NYC housewife, has become an underground favourite, earning seemingly unlikely recommendations from the likes of playwright Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues), comedian/actor Suzy Soro and film critic Roger Ebert. The series’ audience tunes in to hear the confessions of Louise, a Greenwich Village wife and mother with a high-maintenance husband, an addiction to caffeine and an over-active inner voice.
Home security systems are a smart addition to any home. They make you safer and protect your family from fire, carbon monoxide leaks and burglars. However, there are other benefits you may not have considered. Here are the top ten reasons to make this investment in your home.
If you’ve ever taken an Art History class, you may be familiar with paintings from artists like El Greco (pictured) that direct your eye throughout the piece with invisible directional cues. How is this relevant to the productivity of your landing page? Your landing page should work much in the same way. It should be informative, seamlessly direct the audience to the information they want, and offer something stimulating.
So, you’ve got your website, your offering is on-point, and the mission is clear. You’d consider the “El Greco checklist” complete. But where is all of the traffic you were hoping for? How are people going to find you in the expanses of the Internet? One of the most important things you can do with your website is to make it productive.
The traditional keyboard and mouse approach to controlling a PC has been with us for a long time. But now the touchscreen is threatening to change things completely and that’s good for Business.
We’ve become used to using touchscreens on mobile phones and tablets. But now with the advent of Windows 8 and its new user interface they’re starting to appear on our desktops too. They’re also making inroads into commercial fields with applications such as interactive displays in museums, customer service kiosks in shops and so on.
Touchscreens in some form have been around since the 1980s so it’s perhaps surprising that they’ve taken so long to make an impact on our day-to-day computing. Partly that’s down to the fact that the original Technology was fairly crude and couldn’t manage more than one point of contact or tell how hard you were pressing. However the latest devices such as Elo touchscreen PCs are much more sophisticated. That combined with the latest touch-ready operating systems and the fact that they’ve proved intuitive to use even for those without computer experience is part of the reason why they’re now taking off.
