Stowe (at in an english country garden)
I’m heading north for two and a half months, September thru November, swinging through Zürich, Provence, Paris, London, Ireland, Oslo, Bergen and Copenhagen.
If you live in or have any tips for any of these places, please get in touch!
MSN Messenger was a hard-working internet visionary which taught a generation to touch-type and lol, writes BBC technology reporter Dave Lee. It touched the lives of millions of teenagers who, in an age before real social networking, were just getting accustomed to what it was like to live on the internet. MSN Messenger heralded a new era: a time when chatting up a classmate no longer meant the terrifying prospect of actually having to say something to them. It meant no longer would young teens have to endure the torture of ringing the landline number of their newest crush - knowing there was a high probability that dad would pick up. But after all the “ASL?”s and “u there?”s, Messenger’s loyal subjects became less dependent. “I’ll brb”, people said… but they never did. Other sites, smarter and better looking, would see Messenger cast aside. In an age of exciting digital discovery, Messenger became the web’s wooden toy. After a long career, it spent its final year enjoying a comfortable retirement in China. Its less well-regarded relative, Windows Messenger, still battles on on work computers the world over. “It’s like MSN,” office workers say, “…just not as fun.” MSN Messenger is survived by Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Snapchat, Skype, Google and Instagram."
JUCE deliver their first big fist pump moment with new jam Burning Up, a self-proclaimed summer tune on which the London trio fasten the pace once more. By the time the chorus kicks in you’re already thinking of a good choreography to go with the one for (H)ours, but even if you just set your body loose without control you’re destined to shake it up. These girls do it so well, and we’ve got the feeling they’re only getting started.
