SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: Enter Shikari @ENTERSHIKARI #SFTW





Back to their roots on their very own Ambush Reality label distributed through PIAS are heavy-techno-pop-punk-metal masters of the mosh pit... Enter Shikari.  Anyone who's been to a show will appreciated the devote allegiance of the Shikari faithful.  Great to see the boys flying the flag of independence and flying in the faces just about everyone else.…

SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: Leddra Chapman @Leddra #SFTW





22 year old Leddra Chapman is not your typical Essex girl...  She makes perfect Sunday afternoon whimsical melodies infused with delicate Englishness.  Harpsichord, brass sections, strings and piano support accomplished guitar picking that should leave you with a contented sigh.  I'd suggest a glass of well chilled Pinot Gris would be the ideal…

SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: Get Some AIR @airrecordings #SFTW





Home of London based Nu-Funk, Breaks and Electro House, AIR are purveyors of finest quality dance music (and some rather nice hip hop).  The cluberati roster includes Rennie Pilgrim, Krafty Kuts, Bassnectar and an old fave of mine, Lasersonic. If you need a weekend warm up, or like me, some beats to clean the house to on Saturday morn then this weeks…

SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: Life can be a real pig at times @accidentallabel #SFTW

Interactive Adverts & Synchronised Storylines

Ever bumped in to someone whilst walking along, eyes down, so deeply engrossed in your phone that you've actually stopped looking where you are going?   Well audio and image recognition are technologies that potentially require the adoption of protective clothing for everyday life.  They create a multitude of possibilities for advertising and, perhaps more interestingly, for the narrative structure of any cross platform storyline.  Through early examples of audio and image recognition one…

Press 'APP' For Customer Service

Image Credit: The Vinyl Anachronist



Unlike slow cafe service there are some deals we can't just get up and walk out on.  Everyone relates to the frustration of Interactive Voice Response lines, the sense of impending doom when we hear, "press 1 for sales, 2 for billing enquiries, 3 for technical support…"  Once you've dialled in they've got you.  You realise your imprisoned in the IVR with no choice but to go…

SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: From Stratford to Holborn via Uranus @radiosoulwax #SFTW



This week the usual Spotify link doesn't suffice…  I'm afraid you'll need a smartphone and if you are thus endowed don't worry, the app is free and it delivers a delightful audio-visual experience that discerning music fans can't afford to miss out on.  And the concept and content would not be out of place as an installation in the Tate Modern.  I…

My 'to do' list has become multiple browser tabs!

Get a life!  I hear you exclaim.  I'm sure there is something in this though. As a mac user I rarely shut down and restart, a habit that seems deeply ingrained in the legacy mindset of PC users.  Sorry you lot, I've only been clean myself for two years!  My point being that, primarily due to my Apple…

SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: Absynthe Minded @Absynthe_Minded #SFTW



This week from the PIASography, a jazz influenced Belgian rock quintette that sound more like they grew up on the Mersy in the 60's.  The intoxicatingly named Absynthe Minded are currently touring.  Londoners can catch them at Cargo on 14 October but for those who can't make it here is Absynthe Minded: …

The Internet is Always Broken



Does anyone know how to verify a redirected domain? It's about as easy as chewing off your own head and feels as though you are. And I'm supposed to be web savvy! Two hours of googling, multiple support tickets with various providers, a premium rate phone call (old school huh), and twenty quids worth of domain service subscriptions later, despite being integrated with Facebook and Twitter…

About

I set up Who'd of Thought It in 2010, as a blog and place to share and develop ideas. 

It evolved into a small community and forum to post thoughts and canvass feedback, with me entertaining the notion of perhaps collaborating on and publishing some of the content to a wider audience. After gathering some initial traction (there are some novel concepts in the archive) other ventures took precedence.

'WoTI' now serves as a occasional pleasure, scrapbook of ideas and guest posts from those who dare. But never say never!

Enjoy! Chris Thompson
