Watch Me: Upcoming TV Seasons To Catch

Our TV marathon spree seems to have reached an abrupt halt. With the end (or rather impending end) of popular series’ such as Arrow, The Flash, Nashville, The 100, Empire etc. there appears to be nothing left for us to watch besides free-to-air channels. We’ve made our pick of 2 hotly-anticipated TV premieres to catch-up on, just before you start lamenting the end of the TV season and switching to a palpably inferior substitute. Wayward Pines (Season 2) Welcome to Wayward Pines, where paradise is home. There are only 3 cryptic rules to living in Wayward Pines. Do not try to leave. Do…

Mid-2016 Season Break: Which TV Series Ended On A High And Which Didn’t?

It’s that time of the year again: The part where we either put our hands together and go kumbaya at the euphoric high which our favourite shows ended upon, or wring our hands together in abject misery at the pathetic state which they have plummeted to. Here at DANAMIC.ORG, certain spellbinding series caught our hearts, and their picturesque endings are just like the perfect frosting on an extremely decadent cake. Some others simply ended on a grotesque mess: think a soufflé which you had painstakingly whipped, and eventually failed to rise; or shooting 10 arrows and missing with all of…

Chill Vibes: Kicking It Back With The 1975

After pulling a Houdini on us and disappearing from the social media scene, The 1975 is back with their second album. Sure the album title is a mouthful, but “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It” is an apt description of this beautiful masterpiece. 3 years after their debut self-titled album, this record proves that the wait was definitely worth it. As someone who prioritises Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift on my playlists, The 1975 isn’t at once an obvious choice in my music library. 10 minutes in to the album, however, and…

Art & Bytes: Betwixt Festival To Launch End-February

Interstice – that’s the theme at the inaugural Betwixt Festival, a six-day event launching this February at the ArtScience Museum. Referring to “gaps, cracks, and a very small intervening space”, the theme sets the tone for the meeting of art, science, and technology. “As our social landscape swiftly becomes more and more digitalised, new mediums of expression emerge entwined in technology. Coding and physical computing have become tools for artists to create art that has an interactive nature to it, art that requires stimulation and participation to be art – in summary, digital, interactive art.” Falling almost perfectly in line with…

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II Is A Rich Man’s Upgrade

Excuse us because we’ve just come across possibly the best camera on Earth currently (and this is only the faintest of exaggerations). It’s also left one of our editorial staff feeling rather faint; absolutely giddy with excitement. Meet the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II – Canon’s new flagship model for 2016, a real powerhouse of photography and videography with 20.2Megapixels of muscle. But all that flexing didn’t harm its speed as it has an astounding 16 frames per second Live View and 14 FPS with full AE/AF. Plus an impressive ISO range from 100 to 51200, up to an expanded 409600.

Dirty Grandpa: Crass Comedy Hits The Big Screen

Ah, yes… the movie where Zac Efron’s abs character from “Neighbours” joins the tired lascivious road trip comedy plot. Considering Robert De Niro is one of the greatest actors of his generation, this is a new low with raunchy, offensive scenes slapped all over the cliché plot of road trips going haywire. Think “The Hangover” meets “Neighbours”. The plot, a non-existent one, revolves around army veteran Dick (De Niro) tricking his uptight grandson Jason Kelly (Efron) into a road trip after the death of Efron’s grandmother. As it is Dick and his wife’s customary tradition make a road trip to South Florida, he drags…
