#XMasList: Akai MPK Mini MKII Compact Keyboard / Controller
For making beats, I’m totally laptop based. No other equipment needed. I do everything within the confines of Apple Logic Pro X. But I’ve always thought maybe a small controller with e mini keyboard and some sample pads would be great. Since I do a lot of beats in my work commute, I need things […]
Netflix’s Bird Box Feels Like M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening. But If It Was Done The Right Way
This movie came out of nowhere! Netflix seems to be pushing new content on a daily basis. So much that Bird Box totally flew under my radar.

After A Disappointing First Season, Star Trek Discovery Brings in Classic Trek Characters and Amps Up The Cinematic Splendor for Season 2
I don’t know if it was fan expectations or all the rumors of production problems, but it seems like Star Trek Discovery didn’t do so well in its first season. Personally, I enjoyed the first season a lot. True, it wasn’t classic Trek and the whole prime timeline seemed a little off, but story-wise it was […]
Apple’s video-streaming service was supposed to launch by Spring 2019 or somewhere between March 2019 and the summer of that year, per an August report by The New York Times. As it would seem, it should now arrive at some point in the second half of 2019.
