Marshall Soulful Jones performs ‘Touchscreen’

So I’ve discovered a somewhat random youtube channel, and from that channel I ended up discovering a few random videos. Well perhaps the videos on the channel aren’t so random.

The channel: speakeasynyc

Basically the channel is videos of live performances from the Bowery Poetry Club. For more information on the Bowery Poetry Club visit their site: www.bowerypoetrylive.com

The video: I’ve embedded it below, but it is one of many. I thought I would share this one as it makes reference to the digital world we live in today and provokes some thought about how distance from humanity we are becoming.

It is also a different style to poetry which I had in my mind. It is short (a few minutes), entertaining, relevant to today and also engages you on a different level as it is communicated via voice. With out it being conveyed through speach I’m not sure any of the poems would carry as much meaning.

For those who are still not interested, just look at all the popping this guy does during the poem.

Battlefield 3 – Simulator

Graphics in games are improving year after year. Computer hardware itself is becoming more advance and when reaching the limits Intel, AMD, ATI, NVidia and other giants come up with yet another idea on how to get to the next level.

When I was building my first PC there wasn’t even the concept of multi cored CPU’s (or even dual core at the time). Graphics card were limited to a single GPU and a single card in the PC. Now you can get Intel’s i7 CPU’s which keep on adding multi threaded cores, multiple graphic cards all connected to the one computer performing once task.

So what is next? Well probably more cores and more processing power but for a gaming experience like no other you are entering into the real of simulation.

The Gadget Show aired an episode recently where a team put together a Battlefield 3 simulator. This included projects, automatic paint ball guns, treadmills, etc to get a life like experiencing while playing Battlefield 3.

Battlefield 3 – Real Life – There is a Canal

We have seen them before but as my current flavour of FPS is EA’s Battlefield 3 I can appreciate the effort put into the following youtube video.

Basically people shoot footage and overlay it with graphics from the game to get a realistic real life version of the game. Here is the latest one I’ve watched and thought I would share it you all.
