The Google Nexus 4 and Android; My New Love

Nexus-4

I’ve always had a slight obsession with mobile phones. Since my first Nokia 5110 all those years ago, i’ve always enjoyed upgrading models, playing with new features and learning about future developments. I stuck to Nokia for most of my teenage years going through the latest models as they came out, switching between candybar and flip phones and back again.

The inspiration for my screen name.

I started using the internet around 1995 I believe… back then it was a big deal when we got our 56k dial up modem. We had a really shitty ISP that would constantly be too busy to connect to, it was horrible. Does anyone remember those AOL cd’s that were everywhere at the time? It’s scary to imagine how many of those ended up rotting in landfill. It was around this time I became a huge Sailor Moon fan thanks to the popular kids show: Agro’s Cartoon Connection so a lot of my time was spent searching out any and all information I could on my favourite show. I made a few online friends around the world during my travels, and of course I needed a screen name to use in chat rooms and emails so being the most original being I am I stole a character name from Sailor Moon. Darien was born! Continue reading How I came to be a media addict; Part 1

Media Journal; January 2013

A monthly feature, Media Journal posts reflect on the various things i’ve enjoyed over the month. I will generally only talk about things that are new to the lists, since things like TV shows keep coming month after month. Unless of course there is an episode that I find worth discussing. I’ll be giving these a star rating from 0 (didnt like) to 3 (liked it a lot). Standouts can earn a + which means I loved it. Continue reading Media Journal; January 2013

A love of reading, of playing, and reviewing.
