The Background Flow Rebranded to The Low End Blend for Keakie.co.uk

The Background Flow Rebranded to The Low End Blend for Keakie.co.uk

I’ve been quietly transitioning my mix series to the Keakie.co.uk platform from mixcloud.com. Prototype of Nu-Soul, The Retro Rap Show and Return of The Boom Bap will all follow with rebranding and a relaunch. As it stands, while the paperwork is being worked out, the last few episodes of each show will be rebroadcasted under the new branding to get me use to the new schedule. Each show will drop twice a month (that’s 8 mixes a month, folks!), but be reduced from 1 hour to 45 minutes to give me a better distribution of content.

Quote of The Moment: Carl Sagan

The suppression of uncomfortable ideas may be common in religion or in politics, but it is not the path to knowledge, and there's no place for it in the endeavor of science. We do not know beforehand where fundamental insights will arise from about our mysterious and lovely solar system. The history of our study of our solar system shows us clearly that accepted and conventional ideas are often wrong, and that fundamental insights can arise from the most unexpected sources.

The CW’s New ‘Open to All’ Campaign Feels Like One Part Commitment to Inclusiveness, and a Stand Against the Current Political Climate

Even though some extremists consider it pandering to their viewership, The CW’s awesome ‘OPEN TO ALL’ campaign feels like the young adult station taking a stand against the rhetoric being spewed by the current Presidential administration, I hope others follow suit. The only way to combat right-wing propaganda is with direct, concise information on where you stand and who you stand Wirth. Brave CW.

Stellaris Is Coming To Consoles in 2019!

Stellaris Is Coming To Consoles in 2019!

In an attempt to find a successor to my favorite 4X space game, Masters of Orion, I started to sample the few newer titles that were available on Mac OS X. Stellaris was a huge contender. It had the broad complexity and epic feel of a huge game. But the learning curve was an issue. I ended up going with Endless Space 2 but a little bit more simplicity and the GORGEOUS graphics. But now that Stellaris is coming to consoles, I’m pretty sure they’ve found a way to scale down the gameplay, much like the Civilization series. Throw in a possible port to the Star Trek mod and I’ll surely be shelling out my $60 for the console version. (MORE INFORMATION)

We’re Getting Real Life X-File Cases in Project Blue Book

We’re Getting Real Life X-File Cases in Project Blue Book
Project Blue Book is based on the true, Top Secret investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and related phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force from 1952-1969. The series is inspired by the personal experiences of Dr. J. Allen Hynek, a brilliant college professor recruited by the U.S. Air Force to spearhead this clandestine operation (Project Blue Book) that researched thousands of cases, over 700 of which remain unsolved to this day. Each episode draws from the actual case files, blending UFO theories with authentic historical events from one of the most mysterious eras in United States history. [IGN.com]

Quote of The Moment: Malcolm X

The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.

Quote of The Moment: Sam Shepard

The sides are being divided now. It’s very obvious. So if you’re on the other side of the fence, you’re suddenly anti-American. Its breeding fear of being on the wrong side. Democracy’s a very fragile thing. You have to take care of democracy. As soon as you stop being responsible to it and allow it to turn into scare tactics, it’s no longer democracy, is it? It’s something else. It may be an inch away from totalitarianism.

I haven't faced death. I've cheated death. I've tricked my way out of death and patted myself on the back for my ingenuity; I know nothing.

Why Do I Keep Buying These WWE 2K Wrestling Games?

Why Do I Keep Buying These WWE 2K Wrestling Games?

The annual release of 2K’s WWE wrestling simulator, WWE2k19 is upon us. It’ll be dropping in early October as usual.. and as usual I’ll be picking it up. With very little changes from year to year (except for updated rosters), I still don’t understand why I give away $60 each year for a game I already own a dozen times over. Who knows. Who cares. I’ll be pre-ordering soon. Lord help me…

Quote of The Moment: Mitt Romney

Think of Donald Trump's personal qualities, the bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, the absurd third-grade theatrics. We have long referred to him as 'The Donald.' He is the only person in America to whom we have added an article before his name. It wasn't because he had attributes we admired.
