Now, I’m not the best person to talk to about politics, economics or technology, but I feel like I know a fair bit (particularly as technology is one of my biggest interests). So, today I’m going to take a punt and talk about some of the biggest advancements for humanity in 2014 as part of my “Top 5 2014” series of blogs & videos I’m running. This post is the 4th out of 5.
Every day up to and including New Years Eve I’m posting a new vlog/blog talking about my favourite things of 2014. So, continuing in said fashion, today I’m rating musical artists.
It would be pretty hard to pick the best artists this year because, well, who didn’t produce music this year? We’ve had everyone from Kylie Minogue to The Arctic Monkeys, Shakira to Slipknot and Jessie J to Foster The People. So I’m narrowing it down to new artists. I’m sure these people have all been making music for many years, but I’m focusing on the ones who have really exploded on to the scene this year.
Hi. If you’re subscribed to me on YouTube then you probably noticed (or didn’t notice, as the case may be) that I disappeared. I genuinely haven’t made a video since the 8th of May 2014 (let’s just ignore that awkward ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? I didn’t even edit it!). I’m sorry, but there’s a few reasons and I think I need to get them off my chest. So here we go…
James Pratters 2.0 is a new project I’ve been working on as an extension to my YouTube channel. I stopped making YouTube “vlogs” in May for various reasons (which I’ll explain in a later blog post), and I have been wanting to make something new since August. I thought to myself that it’s been so long since I made a video that it would be appropriate to have a “rebranding” of my channel and my online persona- hence James Pratters 2.0. It’s like an update (nifty, eh?).
For more details on what the project consists of, please visit my About page. As for this blog, I just wanted to give an introduction and explain a few things to my potential audience.
