The last Mac Mini I had was the perfect media PC. It ran both XBMC (now Kodi) as well as Plex. It was a grab backup Mac for work and browsing. This souped up version might be a worthy replacement in the near future.
It’s crazy to think that I’ve been putting out my own music for over 20 years! Not to be a producer or anything like that. It was that compulsive need to create something and participate in the Hip-Hop lifestyle. So to celebrate that time, I’m releasing a PRIMER Trilogy of compilations. I’m grouping them under “Collaborations”, “Remixes” and my personal “Favorites”. If possible I want to remaster some older stuff to be more confident with my current material. I might even stick in some unreleased and/or soon to be released material. All three projects should drop before the end of the year. No release date yet. Whenever I feel like it. The cover art is done, tho. The love for Hip-Hop is a pure and beautiful thing. 🎧 🎚🎛
Pixel Film Studios plugins have been my lifeblood. They’ve allowed me to do a lot of effects-based projects that previously could only be done in After Effects. This 2nd version of Projection takes the image mapping to another level. I can’t wait to start playing with this.
We get a bit more information on this animated Christmas movie. The anticipation grows…
Yes, it may be convoluted, silly and feel like a rehashed event (read: Civil War II)., but Spider-geddon is still a fun read. I still can’t keep track of all the Spider Heroes that are in play, but you don’t have to. You just need come along for the ride. I’m a huge fan of Doc Oct as the Superior Spider-man, so it’s cool they found a way to bring him back temporarily. I can’t wait to see how they wrap this one up. Hopefully there will be a shake up in the status quo.
In other books, Infinity Wars seems to be losing steam. It was pretty good before ‘The Folding’ happened. Let’s hope it wraps up strong. This week’s crop of X-Books was decent. Greg Pak’s Weapon X seems to be dark horse that’s really delivering. I hope they keep this team around when the reboot the X-Universe. I know Domino’s going to X-Force, but a villain team trying to do good seems pretty cool. The Walking Dead’s Commonwealth storyline is dragon on slowly… and I love it! There’s something creepy happening there, and we’re skimming the surface. Not really feeling The Champions right now. Let’s hope the reboot gives the book more focus. And finally, we get a bit of nostalgia for use old folks, as this issue of Iceman has him teaming up with Spider-man and Fire Star… a nod to the old animated series Spider-man and His Amazing Friends. #Respect.
A lot of you have been following my mix shows for over a decade. After 10 years with flowink.com and a few more independently releasing on mixcloud, I’m excited to reveal I’ll be signing on with the music streaming site Keakie.co.uk to move and rebrand my four major shows (Prototype of Nu-Soul, The Background Flow, Return of the Boom Bap and Retro Rap) to Keakie’s platform. That will mean I won’t be posting much more to mixcloud for the foreseeable future. I will keep the current content up there and also, reposting old flowing mixes that never made it up for one reason or another. I’ll still be doing my show on RapTz Radio, naming it simply the Toddy Digital Show. I’m always curious and excited by change. I everyone that’s been riding with me will continue to support me and the movement on these platforms.
