In My Own Words:
For the future of electronic music, it seems quite obvious to me that its unique resources guarantee its use, because it has shifted the boundaries of music away from the limitations of the acoustical instrument, of the performer's coordinating capabilities, to the almost infinite limitations of the electronic instrument. The new limitations are the human ones of perception.

Interests
Body conditioning, resistance training, self defence applications, mixed martial arts, electronic music, stealth infiltration and mech video games. Not forgetting finely directed action and sci-fi movies..

Always good and amusing to see these action film heavyweights on screen together, but not quite enough to watch Expendables more than once. Mainly because this type of film seems to need a more Interesting, fun or dangerous edge to it's action set pieces. Expendables seems to go on autopilot in many areas, which… Read more
York 15kg Chrome Dumbbell Set and Case York Fitness
4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthwhile Purchase, 4 Sep 2014
Generally good quality product which I've used for years now. I seem to have acquired extra chrome plates at some point as the total weight on each dumbell is around 15kg each with a few smaller york plates left over.

The spin locks have been reliably secure for several years, but one loosens slightly over a few sets of overhead front presses for the last six months now. No big deal as I just retighten between set breaks but the weight plates remain safe due to the screw thread.

These dumbells are versatile and convenient, taking up little space with a far more approachable look than a long heavy barbell. Dumbells are said to triggger more muscle fibre recruitment of… Read more
