I'm passionate about pop music (trashy/regular), anything with an artistic slant, and garlicky chicken rice chilli. I also bake for sanity's sake.

Bang Bang Into The Room: Blaster Empire Brings NERF Wars To Life

Blaster Empire is making this happen with an array of NERF guns and props that simulate a real-life battle scenario, minus the icky stuff. With 3 different packages to meet the needs of anywhere from 10 to 30 players, Blaster Empire is here to revolutionise company retreats and even birthday parties.

Can Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” Conquer Summer 2016?

“I’ve made my decision, to test my limits” After a painfully-extended promotional run, pop’ music’s four-octave fave Ariana Grande has finally released her third full-length album, “Dangerous Woman”. The album is preceded by the singles “Dangerous Woman” and “Into You”, along with many other bops that we’ll get to later. The wait for #AG3 could have been a lot shorter. After scrapping 2015’s “Focus” over online criticism about it sounding too similar to her 2014 Iggy Azalea collab “Problem”, Ariana took a few months off to realign her chakras, lick some donuts, and post more cryptic tweets, Snapchats, and Instagrams as punishment for our audacity…

Rufus Wainwright Pays Homage To Shakespeare With Florence Welch, Helena Bonham Carter, and More

I first discovered Rufus Wainwright by way of Robbie Williams‘ gorgeous, duets-laden album “Swings Both Ways”, from their track of the same name. The American-Canadian singer-songwriter and composer’s velvety, androgynous vocals were fascinating to say the least. Just last week, Rufus Wainwright released his ninth studio album to little fanfare. “Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets” was quietly brought into the world with a slew of artistic collaborators, including Helena Bonham Carter, Marius de Vries, Florence Welch, and Carrie Fisher. With the 400th anniversary of the master playwright’s death coming to a head with the #Shakespeare400 banner online, it’s not difficult…

Pink Returns “Just Like Fire” To The Music Scene

Here’s an interesting tidbit: pop-rock artist Pink was one of DANamic.ORG’s very first topics. Back in September 2015, we wrote about the possibility of new music from the vocal powerhouse, dissecting evidence such as her writing the new theme song for The Ellen Show. Our predictions might have been a little bit premature, but Pink is finally back with her original contribution to the official soundtrack of “Alice Through The Looking Glass”, the upcoming sequel to 2010’s “Alice In Wonderland”. The movie will see A-listers like Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter returning to their trippy roles in the…

Welcome to Tech Brief, your weekly wrap-up on all that’s happened in the tech and startup industries this week!  THIS WEEK, WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE TRAITOR THAT IS INSTAGRAM. THAT IS ALL. The World’s Largest Photo-Sharing Platform Just Pissed Off ALL Its Users In a blog post released on 15 March (“BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH”), Instagram tried its best to convince its few hundred million users that switching to an algorithm-based feed is really the best decision. Wrong. I’m not entirely sure where they plucked that observation that “people miss on average 70 percent of their feeds”…
