Unshackle Yourself From iTunes…

THERE is another way….

If you haven’t already got a Google account…first of all, why not?…second , get one, now! – I’m sure you know what website to go to to get one 😉

Google Play Music & Google Music Manager lets you upload up to 20,000 tracks – that’s twenty thousand tracks – to Google’s servers and then lets you listen to all your music from any device that’s logged into your Google Account….for FREE, from anywhere!

Google Play Music

Once you install the app on your computer, it will scan your iTunes folder or whatever folder you keep your music in and upload it all to the big G’s servers…if you’ve got a big music collection, that can obviously take a while but it all goes on it the background with a little icon telling you how many tracks it’s uploaded so far.

The clever bit is, that if it finds tracks in your music collection that are already available on Google Play (Google’s music service), it wont bother uploading them – Google will just give you rights/access to play them from it’s servers as well as download them onto other devices you own (computers & Android phones & tablets)

So you now have a free multi-room, multi-city, multi-country audio system!  Not only that – you’ve basically turned any internet connected computer on the planet into your personal stereo, with all your music on it…what’s not to like? 🙂

Google Play Music UI

Google Play Music UI

In my opinion, the Google Play ‘My Music’ user interface is far nicer to look at and easier to navigate than iTunes is, was or ever will be – plus for something that’s a cloud-based web-app it’s surprisingly quick, in fact except for a slight delay from when you hit Play to when the music starts, it seems to be faster to get around than the sluggish, bloated Apple software.

Give it a try, you wont be disappointed…

The Outdoor Life…

…brought to you by Norrøna 😉

Welcome to svalbard

Welcome to svalbard from Norrona on Vimeo.

The North Pole has a neighbour: Svalbard. It’s one of the world’s most striking wilderness areas, and it’s where Norrøna came up with one of its greatest and most popular concepts: svalbard. Inspired by vast glaciers, fantastic fjords and jagged peaks, svalbard also honours polar heroes of past and present. These products are outdoor essentials – arctic quality cotton for winter use, rugged summer mountain wear, renowned synkron™ backpacks and a special expeditionary concept developed personally by Børge Ousland. Durability and weather protection characterize Norrøna’s entire svalbard series. Yet we use materials that are kinder to the environment, like recycled polyester and organic cotton.

Paper Shredder…

A Stop Animation Snowboard Film
Created By: Paul & Stephen Gemignani

One snowboard shredders adventure in an unusual setting.

The Filming Process:
We started with actual sequence photos of Paul riding (taken by his brother Stephen). Then we printed each frame of the sequences on paper and cut out the rider from each one, which we used to re-create the sequences with different backdrops, creating the stop animation effect used in the video – a very SLOW process. It was challenging at times, but it came together in the end. We hope you like the film.


Pre-Production Hours……………..48
Production Hours………………….152
Post Production (Photos)………..19
