#AceMediaNews – Feb.13: Music composer Robin Ghosh passes away

Legendary Pakistani actor Shabnam’s husband and music composer Robin Ghosh passed away in Bangladesh on Saturday, Express News reported.

Ghosh contributed greatly to the Pakistani film industry. Of his many achievements, one of the greatest was the songs he composed for the film Aaina- one of the greatest films ever made in the Pakistan film Industry.

In May 2012, Pakistani film-makers, actors and music composers all came together at the Arts Council in Karachi to pay tribute to the legendary actor Shabnam and her husband music composer Robin Ghosh. Held in honour of the two legends who are visiting Pakistan from Bangladesh, the event was organised by the Arts Council of Pakistan and Weekly Nigar.

Addressing the event, Ghosh spoke about all the legends who have come and gone. “Pakistan has a lot of talent and one day this talent will be recongised globally.

The revival of the industry is a must, we can’t let this industry die; it’s the same industry that produced stalwarts like Noor Jehan, Mehdi Hasan and Mehnaz,” said the music composer.

Oh no! RIP Robin Ghosh – what beautiful music you gave to #Pakistan https://t.co/0RpAXIdlEc

#AceSocialNews – It’s finally here: Instagram launches multiple accounts support

After months of testing, it is finally here. Instagram announced today that it is officially launching multi account support.

A feature that many have been waiting for, the photo sharing social media app, now allows users to maintain more than one account on the same device.

This is especially due to the rise of profiles dedicated to businesses, pets and any number of other things.

As more Instagram users juggle business and personal accounts, Instagram has finally launched support for multiple accounts. (Shutterstock)

FEATURED: Google your virtual reality: New VR headset to work without smartphone or computer, leak says – @AceNewsServices

Standard

#AceNewsDesk – Feb.13: Google is thought to have developed a new virtual reality headset, not reliant on smartphones, PCs or a game console – unlike existing VR gadgets such as Facebook’s Oculus Rift or its own Google Cardboard viewer.

As speculation mounts about Apple’s secret work on virtual reality headset prototypes, Google is developing its own standalone virtual reality headset, The Wall Street Journal reports.

According to the WSJ’s source, who claims to be familiar with Google’s R&D, the VR headset will feature a screen, high-powered processors, and a set of outward-facing cameras. Movidius chips that use the camera feed to track head motion will be reportedly included as well, alleviating the need for an external camera to track movements.

The existing VR headsets developed by Oculus, Sony, Samsung and Google usually require three things: a PC, a console or a smartphone to run apps or games, a headset that secures a display in front of the user’s eyes (which could be the smartphone’s display) and some kind of input tech – head tracking, controllers, hand tracking, voice, on-device buttons or tracking pads.

Google’s new virtual reality headset may avoid reliance on a smartphone, computer or game console, unlike its competitors.

Google has not yet commented on the WSJ report. Sundar Pichai, Google’s chief executive, told the Financial Times last week that the current Google Cardboard viewer was “just the first step” in its VR efforts.

“Beyond these early efforts, you’ll see a lot more from us and our partners in 2016,” he said.

Industry analysts predict mobile VR gadgets will enter the mainstream quicker than the more sophisticated – but expensive – Oculus Rift or Sony’s PlayStation VR.

Such headsets, initially designed for gamers, cost hundreds of dollars, and beyond that, must be tethered to a PC or games console.

#AceSocialNews – Feb.12: Douglas Rushkoff: ‘I’m thinking it may be good to be off social media altogether’

The media critic on the malfunctioning tech economy, digital detoxes and why Facebook is unhygenic

Douglas Rushkoff emerged as a media commentator in 1994 with his first book, Cyberia. His debut examined “the early psychedelic, rave roots of digital technology. I was trying to infer what a digital society might be like given the beliefs of these people,” he tells me during a phone interview from his Brooklyn home.

He has published 10 books detailing an increasingly fierce critique of digital society. Along the way Rushkoff has coined terms that have slipped into the lexicon such as “digital natives”, “social currency” and “viral media”. He has also made several documentaries and written novels both graphic and regular; consulted for organisations from the UN to the US government and composed music with Genesis P-Orridge. In 2013 MIT named him the sixth most influential thinker in the world, sandwiched between Steven Pinker and Niall Ferguson.

#AceMediaNews – Feb.13: BBC’s new £20m spy thriller ‘the most radical ever’ Le Carré adaptation

The Night Manager, starring Olivia Colman, Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, is a co-production with company behind Breaking Bad and Mad Men

A new BBC adaptation of a John Le Carré spy thriller – the first by the corporation for nearly 30 years – will be the “most radical ever done”, according to the author’s son.

British television has stepped back up to the plate” with this project, said Simon Cornwell, noting that his father, now 84, “always loved the original treatments of his work”, in which Alec Guinness played taciturn spy George Smiley for the BBC.

#AceMediaNews – Feb.13: Rival movie awards to highlight diversity gap days before Oscars

Beasts of No Nation, Chi-Raq, Concussion, Creed, Dope and Straight Outta Compton will compete for best picture at #OscarsSoWhite-inspired ceremony

Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons is to stage a rival awards show just days before the Oscars with the aim of showcasing the diverse Hollywood talent ignored by the world’s most famous film ceremony.

The All Def Movie awards are clearly designed as a reaction to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy which has overshadowed this year’s awards season after the US Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences failed to include a single person of colour among its acting nominees for the second year running. Beasts of No Nation, Chi-Raq, Concussion, Creed, Dope and Straight Outta Compton will compete for best picture. Guests will arrive on a black carpet, and as well as handing out prizes for best actor, best actress, best director and “best bad muh fucka”, there will be prizes for “best helpful white person” and “best black survivor in a movie”.

FEATURED: Always on my Mind Blog Party

Standard

1blog110Decisions. The average person now makes more decisions in a day than most did in weeks, months, even years. Decisions can engulf us. Haunt us. Overwhelm us. Interrupt us. Even stalk us in our dreams, ummm, a Nightmare on Choice Street? Choices are great, but too many can make it difficult, or almost impossible to make and trust decisions. Then comes the morning after, littered with “Did I make the right choice?”, “What did I do?”, “Can I return this?”, “What was I thinking?”.

1blog106

Even in blogging there are so many decisions. At first, it felt frightening, like I was that boy in Jurassic Park, when Dr. Grant was explaining how Velociraptors kill.

1blog90

Now I’m more like Chris Pratt, on a motorcycle, riding with the Velociraptors in Jurassic World, which for me was an all-out, action-packed cheesefest (in a good way), but a noticeable lack of Jeff Goldblum.

1blog88

And yes, we’ve all made the wrong decisions, like someone thinking it was a good idea to make a certain theme park ride that shall remain nameless, ok, Tomorrowland, into a movie. It had its moments, mainly involving George Clooney and Hugh Laurie – I do so enjoy when Laurie’sgiven a chance to rant.

1blog86

Even after years of blogging I still have trouble making some decisions, and have more blank-I-just-can’t-make-this-decision-moments than would seem humanly possible..but mostly it’s much, much more like It’s A Small World After All.

1blog109

Blogging has taken me to places I might never have gone:

1. Magical places…
http://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/10/03/sweet-dreams-are-made-of-this/

1gone10

2. Hopeful places…
Thank you, Mary Smith http://www.marysmith.co.uk/ for your riveting novel, No More Mulberries and equally entrancing non-fiction offering, Drunk Chickens and Burnt Macaroni: Real Stories of Afghan Women. Reminding us that so much of the stereotypes, drama, and propaganda are fabrications – to sell products, news, and government policies; that strength, compassion, and hope still blossoms, especially in the hearts of the oppressed.1blog96

3. Intriguing places…
http://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/10/09/you-may-say-im-a-dreamer/

4. Complex places…
Ever wonder what happened after? You know, after Darcy and Elizabeth, after Jane Eyre and Rochester? Some authors take up the challenge and continue the classic stories. It’s awfully daring, foolhardy, or just cashing in. In the case of Luccia Gray http://lucciagray.com/ – I’m going with daring. As a reader, I didn’t feel this was just to piggyback on the fame, but because Gray loves the enigmatic character, and wanted to continue Eyre’s story through her Eyre Hall Trilogy. The first book, All Hallows at Eyre Hall draws you in, and by the second, Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall you’re on tenterhooks, awaiting more.

1blog98

5. Spacey places…
http://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/12/18/these-arent-the-gifts-youre-looking-for/

6. Even racey places…
Not in a tangible sense, but maybe that’s me, because my idea of a romantic Valentine’s Day is the return of The Walking Dead. Who knows? Love is a mystery.
http://yadadarcyyada.com/2014/04/11/why-zombies-will-rule/
iwanttobelieve I do reviews, honest opinions only.

1blog101

One way or another, we’re all busy.
Finding blogs we enjoy is challenging enough, but making time to read them is daunting.
Why not put all the awesome blogs in one place?
I promised you a blog party http://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/01/24/take-it-easy/

Here it is!
1. Mix and mingle, refreshments to your left beside the archives (what do you think of the new theme?).
2. Please leave your blog link or post link in the comment box below along with any introductions. One link per comment, but come back as often as you’d like.
3. Please reblog to spread the word or like, share on Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Facebook, etc. Like, share, reblog, tell your family, friends and blogneighbours.
4. I will visit and respond asap (at the snail’s pace I’m moving these days, the next Star Wars film could be out before my asap…kidding ).
5. Have fun, it’s a great way to find bloggers and have them find you.

Thank you for coming to the party and for supporting my blog…You’ve made blogging a decision I’ll never regret.

Featured: Creative Commons Torpedoes Copyright Industry Lies

Standard

#AceNewsDesk – Feb.08: The copyright industry has long repeated the claim to politicians that the copyright monopoly is necessary for any culture to be created at all, to the point where politicians actually believe this nonsense. Actually, their ‘lie’ is divided into two parts:

The first falsehood is that authors, makers, and inventors must be paid for anything to be created at all. This lie is actually rather obscene coming from an industry which has deliberately created structures that make sure 99.99% of musicians never see a single cent in royalties: 99% of good musicians are never signed by a label, and of those who are, 99% never see a cent in royalties. So it’s quite obscene arguing that culture must be paid for, when this very industry makes sure that less than one artist in ten thousand get any money for their art.

The second lie is that the only way for artists to make any money is to give the copyright industry an absolute private governmentally-sanctioned distribution monopoly, the copyright monopoly, that takes precedence over any kind of innovation, technology, and civil liberties.

This is an equally obscene lie: all research shows that artists make more money than ever since the advent of file sharing, but the sales-per-copy is down the drain. The fact that the parasitic middlemen are hurting is the best news ever for artists, who get a much larger piece of the pie. Of course, the copyright industry – the parasitic middlemen in question – insist on pretending their interests are aligned with those of the artist, which they never were.

Therefore, in believing these two lies combined, politicians grant this private governmentally-sanctioned monopoly – the copyright monopoly – in the belief that such a harmful monopoly is necessary for culture to exist in society. (Just to illustrate what kind of blatant nonsense this is, all archeological digs have been rich in various expressions of culture. We create as a species because we can’t exist in a society and not express culture – it’s because of our fundamental wiring: not because of a harmful monopoly.)

So what could act as conclusive proof that these lies are, well, lies?

Creative Commons.

In the construct of Creative Commons, you have placed the power over this monopoly with the authors and makers themselves, rather with the parasitic middlemen. And the interesting observation is, that once you do, millions of creators renounce their already-awarded harmful monopolies for a number of reasons – because they make more money that way, because they prefer to create culture that way, or because it’s the moral thing to do.

Once you point out that the actual people who create are renouncing their already-awarded monopolies, and are doing so by the millions – actually, more than an estimated one billion works of art according to the Creative Commons organization – the entire web of lies falls apart.

The copyright monopoly isn’t necessary for culture to exist. It was always tailored to benefit the parasitic middlemen. And these middlemen have tried their damndest to prevent actual artists from seeing any of the money.

Now, you could argue that specific expressions of culture couldn’t exist. You’d be easily disproven – for example, most multimillion-dollar blockbusters make their investment back on opening weekend, far before any digital copy exists as a torrent. Besides, why would you prop up and lock in a specific form of culture with a harmful monopoly, when forms of culture have always evolved with humanity?
