My friend recently finished work on the game Lenna's Inception, mostly made by just these two guys, it's a cute little "Zelda clone" and has been very well received critically since its launch a few days ago, it's not super long but is designed for replay-ability and comes it at £7.

It's got 8-bit and 32-bit selectable art styles, healthy amount of satire and proceduraly generated worlds amongst other things to keep it fresh.

So little random surprise for me.

Firstly, I absolutely can't stand rap music. Especially british rap and their over exaggerated dialect when they are rolling off their lyrics. I mean saying Fink instead of think, Paffetic instead of pathetic (SMH). All that Drill music nonsense, etc etc blah blah.

But I have a thing with monday morning work travelling where I pick something 100% random on Spotify. Today I got stuck with Stormzy. Was about to skip, but figured, no. I will listen to it, like it or not.

I was right though. Music is terrible. Bad bass, over repeated sampling, no variation and so on. However... I must admit, his lyrics are pretty damn deep. Caught me off guard and I found myself Equalizing out all the music as much to focus the vocals and listening to about 3 or 4 of his tracks. I do see why he is popular, and I wondered why originally I saw him being so political on social media etc. But seems like his tracks are full of it. Lyrically, he kinda reminds me of RATM.

Tbf Grime has its origins in DnB/EDM, just with MCs over the top, rather than rap or hip hop, but we do have some proper hip hop a little further up north in the UK, if you want the same high quality of lyrics (The topics underpin modern life in Britain, so you'll find them across the genre) with some old school 90's hip hop vibes & more live bands for backing I recommend some Levelz MC's (I will say though, having grown up in Salford, I've literally never been physically able to pronounce the 'th' sound):

(or Live band: )

This would be my preference more than that if I had to specify what "hip hop/dnb" I preferred. Which is very limited.



Good instrumental syergies. Discreet clever little guitar fills with variations. Small changes in sampling. Variation on the beats during chorus. And well Bone Thugs were pretty big once so they bring their fast lyrical rhyming and it does have a catchy ring to it for me. Maybe because I am a guitarist and have a different genre preference.

Gives an R'n'b, Funk, hip hop, EDM flow all in one.


Here is an old one. With Good ol' Phil Collins

Yeah I'm a big fan of 90's hip hop, more stuff like Wu Tang, Nas, Mobb Deep, Guru, ect usually though. Guru's Jazzmataz albums are amazing for marrying the sounds of different genres with top notch 90's MC's

But there's some amazing instrumentals in modern British hip hop, this guy is amazing, he's deservedly blown up since this older content, (NO CD's is a good track for its guitar instrumentals, he usually gets Tom Misch to play backing when live, but this track is gold)

(I've seen this guy live like 5 times, got a signed copy of his debut album back when his Spotify plays were still in the thousands rather than tens of millions, probably my most valuable piece of physical media)

At first I quite liked grime. Then it hit me that there's nothing positive about it and it spreads hate. I know how it is in certain parts of the UK but people living there do get a choice. They all go to school and learn like any other kids, unless of course they choose not to.

My brother and I were in the same boat in the same crap part of London. We had the same opportunities. I flunked (my choice I wasn't stupid) and he made a good life for himself.

Both of us could be dead now.

So yeah, not sure I like it tbh. Plus most of it is about the same old crap just spreading violence and hatred.

80s I was bit into electro hip hop. Then it all got too gangsta and violent for me so I moved into punk and grunge. I'd always loved punk since being a kid and Adam and the ants etc.

I like Eminem's story style and his comedy. The rest I can take or leave.

I mainly listen to stuff like Lukas Graham now. It's about as negative as I can handle.

I have found a new love for an artist Ayreon.

Every album is secretly linked in one massive story from first album to last (I think 9 albums or more).

All based on a future that we have destroyed pretty much exactly as the direction we are heading to. So they send a warning back in time to try and change history and save humankind.

However the warning is sent back to the dark ages to a blind minstrel boy who sees them as visions a la Nostradamus.

There is also an album alien related where people are abducted from different times and investigated to learn about human emotion (think a hippie, highlander, knight, viking etc). Every singer plays a unique character. Typing this makes it sound absurd, but listening to the story unfold, is so damn clever. Has a number of great artists too. Tobias Sammett of Edguy/Avantasia, Fish from Marillion, Bruce Dickinson and more.

One album even delves into the "locked in syndrome" of a patient reviewing his life through his own mind.

I love clever concepts like this. Avantasia do it well via their Metal Opera too. Even W.A.S.P have a fantastic one by the name of Crimson Idol.

So it looks like the EVGA SR-3 has surfaced. Unique orientation on the CPU, phases, well basically everything

Has a build in Waterblock for the chipset etc, but not the CPU. And comes in at a low price of... $1999 :O

All those power connections though! Even top end TRX40 boards don't need that much!

Honest question, what reason would anyone have to choose that and a W-3175X over the 3990X? Other than hexa-channel memory and specific Intel workloads..
