Reading Festival AGAIN this year!

Being year 13, I have a fair few things I should be doing right now, Such as:

- Revising
- Doing course work
- prepping myself for next year

But I don't give a damn about any of those things, because I'm GOING TO READING FESTIVAL AGAIN THIS YEAR

Reading made my 2012. I don't even care about the horrendous break up with my Ex-Girlfriend or the fact that I had to work Christmas day. Reading festival made me happy no matter what.

A lot of people are gonna think I'm high right now. (Well, the few people that actually read this blog.) But I'm really not, I'm just so excited!

Yeahyeahyeahyeahyeah, this has nothing to do with Tech but Oh well, makes me happy :3 

Thanks for Reading!

Possibly starting a HND in Media and Film....


A few weeks back, I decided to apply for a course in Media Production (level 3 = Equivalent to A levels) And got on without an actual interview, because I had all of the necessary requirements. What the lecturer that interviewed me suggested was that I go for the HND, which is almost like a degree. The reason I got on to this course without any proper interview is because I already have an A level in Film Studies and got a respectable grade.

Because I wrote a far more sophisticated Paragraph than the average GCSE student, he recommended that I go for the HND because of how easily I would pick up the level 3. Because I was the last of the 3 other people to be interviewed, we went for a tour to see how I would feel about some of the facilities. 

He showed me the studios and the equipment. The equipments was fantastic, as some of the specialised cameras (which only students going for master degrees could use) were worth nearly 20k. They have the same camera that the Hobbit was filmed on, which has lenses worth about £700. These cameras were nicknamed 'Reds' because of the company that produced them.

The studios were a little less impressive than the average Uni studio, but none the less, good for the course content. Students were given full use of the studios for their projects. For example: A group of 2nd year HND students were in one of the studios for 5 weeks solid, just creating the sets and shooting scenes for their films, which sounds pretty amazing considering my school only offered us a camera and told us to shoot a film where ever (although this is good experience for finding suitable locations).

So I am waiting to be contacted about my interview, which should hopefully be sometime soon. I should have enough UCAS points to secure a place on the course, but HNDs tend to be flexible which works out pretty well. 

Thanks for reading!

My experience at Reading Festival

Reading festival was amazing! (So amazing that I actually couldn't walk after the first sleep back) And it was one of the best experiences I ever had.

The place was filled with tech! From getting in to the festival, to watching acts.

So getting in was a mission. Me and my friends kinda wimped out of the walk and took the 5 minute bus journey to the site, then we got off and actually didn't have to wait that long! And instead of ripping the tickets, a UV light was used to verify them. Then we walked to our camp site (Where our friend greeted us and set up the tent whilst we went and sorted out other things)
Oh, by the way...we got a tonne of free relentless when we went in!

Then on the friday, we visited the main stage. The lights were very high quality! The first act we watched were Bombay Bicycle Club who were amazing! The mosh pit at the end was extremely painful though.

On saturday, I went and saw Enter Shikari who I loved and Florence and the machine, who was off her face but spectacular. She made the whole crowd hug each other at one point!

Sunday was also a pretty good day, went and saw Foo fighters, Two Door Cinema Club and the Kaiser Chiefs. The Kaiser Chiefs were really good as they got the whole audience involved, and the acoustic cover of 'What you know' By Two Door Cinema club was spectacular.

Overall, I loved my weekend. I made some new friends, saw shit loads of bands play and hardly got any sleep!

How to increase traffic to your site (Which I have done unsuccessfully)

I bet there are hundreds of bloggers out there who just want to make thousands off ads. Well, to cut it short - the majority of them don't. But, you can make some extra cash if you know how. I'll tell you some simple steps to increasing your traffic so that more people can click on your ads.

Step 1: Learn SEO

"Search engine optimization (SEO)is the process of improving your websites ranking on search engines. This can be done by adding more links or photo's.

. I would give you a list of websites, but unfortunately I haven't tried looking for them myself. You can also put more links in to your posts or articles. This is what google looks for when ranking your website. 

Step 2: Social networking

This can be a vital step for some websites or blogs, as the likes of FaceBook or Twitter have hundreds of millions of people on their sites. All you have to do is set up a simple page for your site, and wait for the likes/followers to come to you!
You can also try websites such as: Reddit or Digg which actually let you submit your blog to them, and let the devoted readers it. 

If you want me to give you more tips on how to do this, then please don't be shy! leave a comment or message me directly!

This has been backed up by companies such as Cupertino firm decreasing the amount of iPhones they're going to order in by about 20%-25%. This could mean other things though, Such as increasing the amount of different phones they're going to buy.
Next, the phone is appearance of the phone is rumoured to change drastically. Images have been leaked by websites such as which show that the phone is going to be fairly bigger than the iPhone 4 and 4S.
